    Summary

    "Neil was angry but he himself didn't even know why. Everything was too much and not enough at the same time. He felt more impulsive, more skittish, more violent. He slammed Matt and Kevin several times since he got on the court today and was pretty sure he'd have bruises all over his body, he just couldn't find it in himself to care."

    Summary

    His brother’s silence was telling in itself, but Neil’s skin was itching with anxiety already. He didn’t appreciate Ichirou being a drama queen right now.

    "The Russians."

    "What Russians now?" Neil whined. He was so done with goddamn Russia.

    "Mika Todorova. Ring a bell?"

    Neil's whole body tensed immediately at the mention of the name. Flashes of dyed black hair and blue eyes crowded his vision so he forced himself to close his eyes. "What about her?"

    Ichirou fell into a long silence, as though he was gathering his thoughts to articulate them properly, "You knew she was a daughter of an assassin," He started accusingly. "And yet, you still dared to sleep with her?"

    Or:
    Where Mary dies before they can escape and Nathaniel later turns out to be a scheming little bastard, who decides to befriend Ichirou and Riko Moriyama for their mutual benefit - he becomes an assassin.
    Which takes him to Andrew Doe and his current abusers.
    Oh, and the russian mafia. We can't forget the russian mafia.

    Summary

    They're opposites, he thinks. Andrew's temper is all ice-cold rage, and Neil's anger is a fire that never fully burns out. Every touch is a cold shiver and a hot breath, an exchange of entropy.


    During Neil's rookie pro season, he’s signed to Atlanta as a starting striker. When his team makes it to playoffs, he should be happy. Ecstatic, even.

    But he's not, and the reason is simple: Andrew Minyard is the only thing standing between him and his first championship win. And unfortunately, Andrew's made it clear that he always gets what he wants.

    (It has to be the trophy, right? That’s what Andrew wants. Probably. Definitely? Unless - no, definitely the trophy.)

    AKA: An AU where Andrew and Neil are rivals, and Exy is a violent kind of foreplay that leads to a lot of sex. And maybe, eventually, something more.

    Summary

    Andrew is satisfied by the sight of the dead body, though he can’t bring himself to remember this man’s face or why he even killed him. Because it has to be Andrew.

    Or, Andrew wakes up with sickening sobriety and blood on his hands from a murder he doesn't remember committing. To make things worse he ends up saddled with a voiceless stranger who refuses to give up details to fill the gaps in Andrew's memory.

    Summary

    An AU where Mary never got Nathaniel out. Instead, he became too invaluable of an asset to be killed off or 'gifted' to Tetsuji. Instead, he's raised with Ichirou and Jean as a part of Ichirou's inner circle.

    He'd always had a knack for languages and lying and all the 'messy stuff' came easily enough when your father is called the Butcher of Baltimore. So Nathaniel became the Wraith. He was untraceable, unknowable, infalliable; a criminal fairytale.

    When Kevin Day leaves the Nest, there's no better person to send.

    ~

    "Who the hell are you?" Andrew demanded.

    He wasn't anyone, not really; not anymore. He hadn't really been anyone in years now. There'd been a time. Once. But there were entire lifetimes between who he could have been and what he'd become. He could taste it sometimes; blackberries and sand stinging his tongue like the iron branded on his shoulder.

    It was easier to pretend he'd never been anyone at all.

    "I'm nothing," he answered. the ghost of a smile pulled at his lips; sharp and cruel. "A wraith." The Wraith, he didn't say, but the shadows ran through Adnrew's eyes and he wondered if Andrew had heard it anyways.

    Summary

    Andrew watched him dance. Even among the large crowd he was easy to spot. He called the attention of everyone in the room with the sway of his hips. He smiled and laughed, blue eyes bright even in the low light, and his deep sinful auburn curls bounced along with him.

    Blue eyes found gold, and Andrew was immediately and unequivocally transfixed. Oh, he was so fucked.

    or

    Nathaniel Wesninski, Neil for short, is on the dance team at Palmetto State University. After an encounter with a certain EXY goalie, his world begins to change. For the better.

    Summary

    “Everyone at the Nest had their toxic distraction. Kevin’s was alcohol. Jean’s was the pills. Riko—well, I think Riko just got off by beating everyone.”

    Andrew hums and exhales. The smoke curls around the two of them. “What’s yours?”

    Nathaniel blinks. “My what?”

    “Your toxic distraction.”

    A wicked grin cuts across Nathaniel’s face. He doesn’t try to hide it. He wants Andrew to see. “Now or then?”

    Andrew raises an eyebrow, but that is the only noticeable change in his expression. “Can’t be an addict if you’re inconsistent.”

    “Not an addict. A junkie.”

    *****

    Nathaniel Wesninski was dragged back. Left with a pile of debt to pay off if he wants to live, Nathaniel has no choice but to embrace the life he tried to run from, including the implications that come with it—which he soon learns are far greater than he imagined.

    When something goes wrong amongst the Moriyamas, Nathaniel finds himself in Palmetto with an order to bring Kevin Day back to the Nest. Too bad he’s never been much of a rule-follower.

    Summary

    Neil Josten just surprised Andrew with a goddamn tongue piercing, and now Andrew has to wait six weeks for it to heal. It shouldn't be a problem...shouldn't being the key word here. Because Andrew has found that nothing is ever so simple when Neil Josten is involved.

    AKA the fic where Neil Josten teases his boyfriend mercilessly for weeks before blowing his...mind. 😉

    Summary

    Contrary to popular belief, Neil wasn’t stupid.

    Tired, yes. Bleeding, slightly. But he wasn’t stupid.

    He didn’t even let Hernandez pull him aside in Millport- the minute he heard someone was waiting for him he was gone. A flimsy excuse about grabbing something from his hallway locker (which he never even opened) and he hadn’t looked back.

    Neil grabbed his duffel in front of him, leaving bloody handprints that wouldn’t be seen on the black fabric, as he zipped it closed.

    As if this couldn’t get any worse, a third person stuck their head in the doorway, like some horrible clown car that wanted Neil dead.

    “What is the deal? We have a deadline guys.”

    They made eye contact, and Neil felt his soul leave his body.

    “Is that- fucking Josten?”

     

    (Or alternatively, Neil runs in Milport and has the worst possible luck one could imagine.)

    Summary

    “Are you making friends, Abram?” Mary asked, a nervous tint to her voice.

    Neil thought about the day he finally took out his colored contacts when Nicky asked and the way Andrew had gripped the back of his neck, hissing, “Another bit of unexpected honesty.”

    He wondered when he’d started letting his guard down and things slip.

    “Yeah, Mom,” he answered.

    ~*~

    The start of Neil's journey navigating through the Foxes, Ravens and family relations.

    Summary

    A hurricane traveling up the coast from Florida is set to touch down in Palmetto, a problem no one predicted would incur anything other than storm damages. But hurricanes fuck with barometric pressure, which fucks with scar tissue. And Neil has a lot of that, so when he wakes up in excruciating pain convinced that the past seven months after Baltimore weren’t real, he does the one thing he’d promised not to do anymore.

    He runs.

    Andrew isn’t far behind of course, but Neil is firm in his belief that he never left the car with Lola. There’s also a flash flood advisory to worry about, and he very much tore out of Fox Tower in nothing but a t-shirt and boxer shorts during a literal tropical storm.

    or

    Neil has a dissociative episode that sends him running and Andrew does a lot of feeling over it.

    Summary

    This is probably going to be really long. Basically, Andreil, after they both join a pro Exy team. Neil suggests they make things a little more interesting and don't necessarily tell anyone about their relationship, just act as they usually would. Cue the Minyard/Josten rivalry and basically just Andrew and Neil being little shits and thoroughly enjoying making everyone think they can't stand each other.

    Summary

    Neil Josten betritt das Nest für Andrew, bleibt jedoch für viel mehr.

    ~
    "Es tut mir leid, Coach", murmelte er.
    "Was, Junge?" Wymack rutschte auf seinem Sessel nach vorne. "Da musst du schon etwas genauer sein."

    Er sah den Kummer in Neils Augen, während ein Stoß Papier Hände wechselte. Er sah auf einen Vertrag mit den Edgar Allan Raven's herab.
    "Ich habe unterschrieben, Coach, es tut mir leid."

    ~

    Die Version, bei der Neil aus den Winter Ferien nicht mehr zurückkehrt.
