    Summary

    Robert turned to leave, probably to go get changed for work, and Adam risked a question. “The baby?”
    This didn’t even earn a glance over Robert’s shoulder. “Alive, s’far as I know. Weak thing. Tiny.”
    There went all hope for a better son than Adam, apparently.

    Summary

    Adam had never asked to be a rider, had never asked to be weak. He had never asked to be married off, sold, left in an unfamiliar place with strange customs.

    But... why is this man so kind? And why does he call him queen?

    Oh; Nyra likes him too.

    Summary


    Step one was simply sowing the seeds. He had to drop enough hints to Ronan that Adam would be down, make sure Ronan picked up on them, and then leave them to germinate.
    Step two, watering the bud of the idea. Keep in closer touch with Ronan. Perhaps arrange to run into him after a work out, or a run. Come off as attractive as possible. He could do that - he might not be the most...conventionally attractive person, but he knew his strong spots, and more importantly, he knew Ronan’s weak spots.
    Step three. Get Ronan alone. Make a move. Fuck(?)(!).

    Summary

    Ronan was far too busy to have a crush on a fucking townie. Or on anyone! And it was rude, because Ronan was far too aware of Adam’s existence, and he knew that he probably was barely a blip on Adam’s radar. So, not only did he have to deal with the mortifying knowledge that he, Ronan Fucking Goddamn Niall Lynch, had a stupid crush, but he also had to deal with the reality that that crush was going to go forever unrequited. Made sense really, considering how the rest of his life tended to go. 

    An AU set a few years after Ronan and Gansey finish at Aglionby. Adam comes in late.

    Summary

    She had the world at her feet when she was in high school. She wanted to become a nurse, wanted to help people … follow her mum’s footsteps. Her brother wanted to become a lawyer, like their dad and they were going to live good lives. Good fulfilling lives where they didn’t have to worry about their card being declined or their car running out of petrol in the middle of nowhere. A life that could let them leave Henrietta if they wanted to.
    Then entered Robert Parrish with his large smile and charming words. Three years older, she was sixteen and in love and then she was falling. Falling down a dark hole of pregnancy and motherhood. Her parents chucked her out, no church going girl would do this to themselves, they would wait for the right man, for marriage, for God to bless their union.
    Her parents screamed and screamed and refused to help at all as Robert’s parents threw him out as well. He scrambled together money for a trailer. The trailer. The trailer that was the beginning of their problems, the only constant.

    Summary

    It became methodical, most of the cars had the same problem, the same parts missing or in need of replacing and he almost didn’t hear the car arrive until the door was slammed shut. He jumped, head almost hitting the hood to see an Aglionby boy – very obvious – walking around to the passenger side of a shark-like BMW. He looked angry and sharp, surprisingly matching his car, buzzcut hair, in black jeans, black combat boots and a black jumper with Aglionby splattered across the front. Joe went to shout that they were closed when he turned to grab something off the seat of his car and Joe saw that PARRISH was across the back of his jumper in large block letters and that what he had grabbed looked a lot like a Chinese takeaway.

    Joe glanced over at Boyd who just nodded at the boy as he walked into the garage The boy nodded back, still not smiling.

    “Parrish,” He announced but Adam didn’t slide out from the car.

    “Lynch.” The boy – Lynch – sat on the edge of the desk next to the car Adam was working on, popping his food open, legs crossed. “I haven’t got the cash for a Chinese.”

    “Who the fuck said it was for you?”

    Just a few sketches in time.

    "Is this a murder-suicide thing?" Eve yells over the road noise. “Just because the car can hit 120 doesn’t mean it should!”

    Summary

    Ronan Lynch had been in dozens of fight fists, maybe closer to hundreds. The one time it matters, he didn't dodge in time. It drives Adam to the brink- he got out of that shitty place, out of the suffocating dust and the stifling tin walls and Robert Parrish's fist- so how did they get here?

    AKA Ronan and Adam are fighting and Adam throws his phone, causing Ronan to get hit in the face. He freaks out.

     

    ***** WARNING *****

    So it's been brought to my attention that some feel there's an undertone of abuser-apologist in this fic. Obviously, as someone who has gone through abuse, this is NOT AT ALL what I wanted. When I wrote this fic, I wrote it with the mindset that it's the same as when you're waving your arm around and accidentally bonk someone on the face. If it was Gansey/Blue in this fic it'd end with apologies and 'its okay' and lets move on and not fight anymore. It only spiralled the way it did because of Adam's self perception. I made a point in the second half of the fic to show how it went (objectively). I thought I'd done an okay job, but now I'm concerned for those reading. Physical injury with your partner is NOT normal. Indulge me this fic if it's safe for you, otherwise keep safe xx
