    Summary

    “It’s…” Mikey racked his brain for something - anything - to say. His mind had gone blank. He turned around, trying to find some form of inspiration, but all he could see was Nate. Nate. “It’s Nate,” he blurted.

    The grin slipped from Nate’s lips and the shriek that escaped his mother’s lips was so loud that Mikey was glad he’d put the phone on speaker.

    ***

    Mikey hadn't meant to lie, it had just slipped from his lips.

    Summary

    It’s funny, looking back on things. With Mikey, there are a million stories to tell, and a lot of promises to keep (and a lot of germs shared in the process), and Dylan couldn’t pick the fondest one if he tried. He won’t try, not just because there’s no point, but because of what happens when he does.

    Today, though, he thinks he’ll let himself remember, let himself sift through memory after memory and just… let it linger.

    (or, the story of a boy who loves clouds so much he went and found his own)

    Summary

    Most people's lives make sense. Like, for example, most people don't name their fish after Eminem or make bets about their friends' sex lives or hook up with their childhood rival until they can't ignore their feelings any longer.

    Most people aren't Dylan Strome.

    Summary

    The first thing he does when he gets home is go to the park. He goes, and he sits on the swing that, by all accounts, shouldn’t be able to hold him anymore, but it's somehow just as sturdy as it was when he was young. He says nothing, not for a while, just sits and stares at the grass at his feet.

    “There’s this boy,” he tells the quiet air around him. “He, uh- I like him a lot. God, I-” he rests his head against the rope, right above his hand, and sighs. “I think it’s good this time.”

    It really has - in the past, at least - felt like the forest listens to him, and right now he could really use a response.

    "I love him."

    Summary

    "There’s we’re criminals and people are starting to take notice weird, and then there’s the everyday weird.”

    “The everyday weird?” Mikey asks.

    “Yeah,” Ryan shrugs. “The everyday weird.”

    Summary

    Ry put his hand on Matty’s wrist before they actually went anywhere and kissed Matty softly. “Hey. I love you.”

    Matty grinned and stole another kiss. He laced their fingers together, their blockers bumping together. “I love you too. Let’s get this show on the road before any of our brothers try to tag along.”

    Ry shuddered in mock horror. “What, you don’t want to show Dyls and Marns how a functioning relationship works?”

    Matty choked. “Absolutely not,” he said. “They can put their big boy pants on and figure out their own shit.”
    At that moment, someone slammed into the passenger window, causing both of them to jump. Dylan’s grinning face peered at them through the window.

    “Can I come?” He asked, volume barely dampened by the glass.

    “Fuck,” Ry shouted. “Go, Matty, go!”

    Matty was still laughing when he pulled them out into the street, leaving Dylan behind.

    --

    Or, Ry has a question to ask. Matty dramatically misreads the situation. A snapshot of an otherwise low-drama life.

    Summary

    It only takes three years, it turns out, to go from a pair of brothers with big dreams to a group that’s just a mix of thirteen teenagers and young adults that can barely even be considered that, all of them with even bigger dreams than any of them started with. It’s not exactly your run of the mill family, but it’s theirs, and the circumstances that brought them all together are hardly the best, but the thing is… Not one of them would change it, no matter how bad things were before.

    Before can’t possibly compare to what lies after.

    Summary

    There are a lot of things that have happened over the past few months that Mikey wouldn't have expected, but here he is, and Nate loves him, and Mikey feels nothing. All those years, the anxious confessions, the lonely ache in his chest, learning it’s requited - poof. Gone. Au revoir, see you later, goodbye.

    It sucks. Nate doesn’t deserve this, fuck Nate doesn’t deserve this at all, and Mikey’s a fucking horrible person.

    Summary

    It really shouldn't have been so surprising, that he ends up right where he is.

    It couldn't be anyone but Matty, really. Not now, not ever. He's pretty okay with that.

    Summary

    They both are hurting, and he wishes he could have stopped it - could have kept the lovely Mikey he'd always known.

    It all started like this. Well, okay, Nate has no fucking clue how it actually started, he just knows how his knowledge of the situation started.

    Summary

    You know, if Ryan knew Mikey had ulterior motives when he told him about the job opening at the bakery-cafe-thing across the street from the CVS where he worked, he never would have applied. That’s a lie, really, because he loves his coworkers, but somehow playing the middleman in the most ridiculous mutual pining he’d ever seen over the past five months has been, frankly, the worst.

    Summary

    The point is, there are three things Nathan knows about forever.

    One, it’s a very, very long time. Two, to promise it to someone is naive, and to think a promise of it given to you can and will be kept is even more naive. Three, despite the first two, he thought he’d be spending it with Mikey.

    He thought.
