    Summary

    Sending three children out on their own in a small town like Sunset Bird normally wouldn't be such an issue but it seemed fate had its eyes on the Last sisters and Cove Holden. All it took was for one man and his son to change their young lives.

    (okay that's being dramatic but to them, it all felt as if the world was caving in on them in that alleyway)

    Summary

    Our unique experiences shape who we are, positive or negative. That's why I've decided to explore experiences I've headcanoned for my MC, Rachel Last, that weren't, and couldn't, be explored in the game itself. Most of these are based on my own experiences, though some are sprinkled in entirely on their own, without any basis from my own life.

    There will be 2 versions of this fic, one in which MC will be referred to as my MC's name, Rachel, using she/her/hers pronouns, and one in which MC will be referred to as either Y/N or Jamie (with 2 versions of each chapter for this purpose), using they/them/theirs pronouns.

    Rated T for eventual mentions of sensitive issues, specific warnings of which are provided in the first chapter, and in the notes of chapters that they're discussed.

    If you're interested, I have a spotify playlist for this fic, which can be found following this link!

    Please read the first chapter for important info on how this fic will work! Thank you 😊

    Summary

    Some angst for the our life fandom. Winter was always a hard time for Jamie, no sun, school stress, cold weather, and worst of all no Cove. Cove spent winter break with his mom which meant that the only time they got to see him was when they called every night, but it wasn't the same it wasn't him, it wasn't his warmth evenopling them in a hug, it wasn't him being there for their breakdowns, and that's what Jamie needed right now. Tw: talks of suicide, medication, and SH

    Summary

    Cove has always endured teasing for being a clingy boyfriend. An oddly one-sided judgement, considering his partner returned the sentiment wholeheartedly.

    Summary

    It was a warm and cozy morning, but comfort eluded you. Memories swirled in your mind, and they weren’t pleasant in nature.

    ...

    You tried desperately to escape your mind’s barrage by returning to the depths of unconsciousness, but the anxiety you felt held you hostage.

    _

    This is a very self-indulgent fic in which MC/Jamie is thinking about bad things from their past, based on my own experiences. The nature of these memories isn't the focal point, however, besides the fact that they're about people who hurt them. As such, you can imagine them thinking of anything you want, if it meets that requirement, if you want to either self-insert or insert your own Our Life MC here!

    _

    Some things to note:
    1. Two chapters, EXACT same content. Only difference is how MC is referred to (Y/N in chapter 1, Jamie in chapter 2!)
    2. The specific relationship between MC and Cove is not specified, though it IS romantic in nature. MC and Cove are either dating or married, it's up to the reader!
    3. MC is gender-neutral!
    4. CW for brief mention of bullying and relational trauma

    Summary

    “So, you asked him on a date,” Ma said simply.

    “Pretty much.” You shrugged, silently willing your face to not get red again. It was of no use.

    Mom snickered quietly. “Oh sweetheart, I don’t think you have anything to worry about.” She playfully bumped your shoulder. “It’ll be a lot of fun, even if it’s not a date.”

    “Pam!” Ma chided. “Don’t give them too much grief.”

     

    You never thought you'd ever accidentally ask someone on a date, but you'd rather it be with Cove Holden than anyone else.

    Summary

    This directly follows the "Serendipity" moment during Step 3. "Serendipity" is a DLC moment; if you have not bought the DLC for this game (and have the means to do so), do it now bc the creators deserve all the financial support, amen, allelu, etc. The "Drive" moment is also referenced.

    You and Cove are still shaken by what happened today. Per usual, he sneaks into your room because your emotional bandwidth is limited to each other and not much else.

    Story is told in 2nd person, similar to the game. I reckon you can interpret this as Cove/Jamie/MC or Cove/Reader. MC/reader is never named or gendered (I think, lmao; there may be a masc pronoun in there somewhere bc I play as masc Jamie so if I accidentally left one in I'm sorryyyyyyyy). MC/reader and Cove are dating and the story does depend on some context from playing thru Step 3 as a couple. Text in asterisks at the beginning of the story is meant to indicate a text conversation

    Fill your boots.

    Rated M for language and because MC/Jamie/Reader/author tbh (w/e) needs to go to horny jail. No explicit sexual content tho.

    Summary

    This is a fanfic based upon the graphic novel "Our Life: Beginnings & Always"

    It is meant to be a comfort but be warned that it will involve themes of bullying, angst, hypersensitivity to light & loud noise, and mental disorders such as ADHD.

    With that said, please enjoy!
