    Summary

    Adam was pulling on his Harvard sweatshirt when Ronan said, “I wanna wear that one.”

    Eyes narrowed in question, Adam lowered his arms but kept them in the sleeves. “It’s...my sweatshirt?”

    “Yeah, but it’s my sick sweatshirt,” Ronan said, as if it were an obvious explanation.

    Narrowing his eyes, Adam slowly pulled the sweatshirt off, but draped it over his arm instead of handing it to Ronan. “That’s like, not a thing.”

    Ronan shrugged, still holding his hand out, now making grabby hands at Adam. “Yes, it is. It’s soft and it smells like you and you had me wear it that one time I got super sick and,” he said the next part a little quieter, “I’ve kind of been wearing it whenever I don’t feel good since.”

    ---

    Winter in New England seems to go on forever, Ronan and Adam are sharing a stupid cold, and Adam can't sleep. Maybe it's time for a change of scenery.

    Summary

    “You’re a fucking wreck, Parrish,” Ronan called back, taking three popsicles from the freezer--red for Adam and Opal (because she liked it when they matched) and purple for himself (because no one else liked that flavor, and if he didn’t eat them, they’d slowly get smushed into a sticky pile at the bottom of the freezer). “O, that’s a—”

    “--word for home, not for school, I know.” They had been trying to be more careful about that distinction after an interesting phone call with her teacher.

    “Right.” Coming back into the living room, he sat on Opal’s other side and looked over her at Adam. “If you’re sick enough to get sent home from work, you’re too sick to chase this one around all day.”

    Adam sighed. “Fine."

    ---

    Adam, to no one's surprise, goes to work when he shouldn't. His colleague looks out for him and sends him home, where Ronan takes over with loving gestures and ill-advised kisses. Opal gets a variety of snacks out of all this.

    Summary

    Ronan held up the thermometer. “Humor me.”

    Adam sighed and let Ronan not only put the thermometer in his mouth, but hold it in place for the ten seconds or so it took to read. All the while, he looked at his boyfriend, and while it took a moment to place, he finally figured out Ronan’s expression: eyebrows drawn together, lips pursed, eyes focused on Adam’s mouth. In any other circumstance, it might have looked like anger, but—

    Worry. Ronan was worried. About him.

    ---

    After returning from the weekend with a sick Ronan, Adam isn't doing too well himself; his friends decide it's time to call for reinforcement.

    Summary

    It’s been about four months since the district and the doctors outvoted Adam on homebound schooling. He’s made it farther than she thought, after that awful week with him and Blue and the hospital, but he’s sixteen now and he needs new lungs. He’s getting up there on the transplant list, but it’s going to take another bad event for him to speed to the top. Otherwise, it’ll take a few more months.

    He’s so sick. Just on a baseline level.

    Summary

    Adam just coughs—hard and hollow. His whole chest is moving and yet nothing is coming up. Oh, RT is going to be an absolute shitshow. He can feel it.

    “I don’t like the sound of that,” Claire says.

    “Does anyone?” Adam gets out, kicks the blankets off because he’s somehow cold but also too warm and doesn’t know what to do about it. Claire just slides the mask back on him. Adam takes it back off. Calla’s on the couch, her eyes glued to the phone. “Where’s Maura? Or was I super fucking out of it?”

    “Language,” Calla says. “Maura was here, but Blue got sick at school so she’s going to get her.”

    “Blue’s sick? With what?” Adam asks. “Did she get me sick? ‘M gonna kill her.”

    Summary

    It's bound to happen, with his astounding lack of self care and unreasonably busy schedule; but at least Ronan is there.

    Or, Adam gets a bad case of the flu.

    Summary

    But dry heaving sucks, and Adam feels tears spring in eyes out of synch with the jumping of the muscles in his lower back. It doesn’t stop, not even when Ronan appears, one hand smoothing Adam’s hair back from his forehead, the other rubbing circles on his back.

    Fuck. Adam had been trying to not wake Ronan up. He’s been worrying so much.

    “Ugh,” Adam gets out, when it’s over. He goes to stand, and Ronan’s hands ease the process, make sure Adam is steady on his own feet. He’s not. Ronan’s hand remains tight around Adam’s waist, helping Adam stay upright as he swishes some water around his mouth and spits. Adam doesn’t protest Ronan all but carrying Adam back to bed.

    “This appointment is gonna be a shitshow,” Adam mumbles. “I haven’t, like, slept all week.”

    “It’s gonna be okay,” Ronan says. “Maybe it’s not as bad as we think.”

    Summary

    "Why didn't you listen?" Adam muttered, because in his overheated, exhausted, congested, delusional state, this was a fight he thought he had some chance of winning.

    Ronan held his gaze. "If you really want me to go," he said, "I'll go."

    Adam knew it wasn't a lie.

    Summary

    Adam’s one working ear felt stuffed full of cotton; the road construction down the block was nearly deafening; the weird, ceaseless humming of Cabeswater was clouding his feverish head; and now he was certain the fever was causing auditory hallucinations. Because he could’ve swore Ronan Lynch just asked him to spend the night in his sacred childhood dream home. His lips even made the right shapes to confirm it.

    Then again, Adam might just be terrible at lip-reading. And also, he was probably hallucinating.

    Summary

    To be fair, Adam felt fine until he woke up that morning. It’s just a headache, now, maybe he feels a little warm, maybe his stomach is flipping a little, but it’s nothing he can’t handle.

    Then he stands up.

    Adam barely hears his knees crack against the tile of the bathroom before he’s vomiting, bile and water and the crackers he ate for dinner the night before.

    It’s probably a bug, he probably just needs to rest, probably will be fine to go to work later.

    Probably.

    Summary

    Adam was sleepy and overly cuddly. Ronan was grumpy and hiding out in his bedroom. Gansey was refusing to rest and had buried himself in Glendower research. Noah wasn't sick, but he was dead, meaning that he might as well have been sick for all the good he was doing. So Blue Sargent was spending her spring break at Monmouth Manufacturing, taking care of three sick boys. It could be worse.

    The boys all come down with colds and Blue takes care of them. Friendship, cuddling, and lots of sneezing happen.
