    Summary

    "Stop," he said as the footsteps came in near him. "Hot bath. Now."

    A chuckle and shifting from foot to foot accompanied his order. "I assume you're a little cold."

    Andrew could feel the mocking smile in the back of his head.

    "I said 'Now'."

    ***

    Andrew and Neil share a winter day with ice skating and Andrew Minyard wrapped in blankets like a cinnamon roll

    Summary

    with time andrew had become good at keeping a certain part of his mind separate: the part that yearned for protection, love, care. he knew all too well the ease with which surfacing vulnerability could overwhelm him, but the more his awareness of his 'inner child' grew the more difficult it was to keep it locked away. they were the same, after all. it was easy to pretend he didn’t want anything, but god, he did. so much that he could barely stop. so much that it haunted him, stole the voice from his lungs.

    and so, the pain was always there. always a dull ache in the center of his chest. always tearing down his defenses until the next bad day, the next breakdown—waiting until the moment he was too vulnerable to stop the way it flooded every cell, every muscle, until he was curling into himself and fighting the urge to wipe it away forever.

    [or, a story about andrew's inner journey as he struggles to reconcile with his wounded inner child.]

    Summary

    ““I want to try having sex. Real sex. But I think I will freak out and scare you.”
    Neil blinked one, two, three times, with his mouth open like a dead fish.
    “Yes or no?” Andrew asked again, getting impatient.
    “No” he answered.”

    Andrew really wants to have sex for the first time with Neil, but his partner thinks that he is not ready for this. Instead, they take a night out at Columbia and try to figure out how to be comfortable around each other while being naked.

    Summary

    There were some things he didn’t mind, the colder it got, the more layers people wore and questions about his long sleeves became fewer, the special hot chocolate bee buys around this season, people slipping on ice and falling on their asses.

    He also doesn’t mind when the freezing temperatures mean a certain blue-eyed boy starts wearing outrageously oversized grandpa sweaters passed down from his uncle.

    Summary

    Adam Parrish stood on the front porch, fully wet from head to toe. His dusty hair soaked and sticking to his forehead, a few strands of it poking his eyes. Ronan tucked the loose strands away from Adam's eyes and Adam stared at him, before Ronan realized what he was doing and pulled away.

    Neil had just come face to face with Andrew Minyard himself, three years after he'd broken up with Neil because they wouldn't make it anyway. Because what they had was nothing, too little to mean something to Andrew and too much to mean to Neil.

    Summary

    Andrew watches Neil dance. Even among the large crowd he is easy to spot. He calls the attention of everyone in the room with the sway of his hips. He smiles and laughs, blue eyes bright even in the low light, with his deep sinful auburn curls that bounce with him.

    Blue eyes find gold, and Andrew is immediately and unequivocally transfixed. Oh, he is 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

    "I need an answer for this, Andrew," he prods, "You don't have to write me an essay, just… tell me the basics. What do you like?"

    He sighs in defeat and tucks his socked feet under Neil's thigh. "When you… say things," he says slowly.

    Neil stares at him, "I need a little more to go on than that, love."

    Andrew flicks him on the arm, irritated, "I meant when you say nice things, asshole. Like when you tell me I'm… good."

    Summary

    andrew had spent years living with the hard lessons a childhood spend in the system had taught him. it was clear. nothing good never lasted. little nobody boys like him could never receive anything but the worst of agonies. to want was to sign your own death warrant. to love was to hand over your heart on a platter. to trust was to offer a gun hilt-first with the nozzle pressing into your heart.

    and no matter what, no matter when, no matter how—he would never be enough. nothing about him would ever be enough. he would only ever be of little consequence, little worth. nothing to cherish, certainly nothing to love.

    and nothing about him would ever be enough to make another stay.

    Summary

    When people looked at Neil and Andrew, they often assumed that the two never touched. That couldn't be further from the truth. There wasn’t much physical contact in the beginning, neither of them in the head space for something like that, so they started off small. Just and holding. It was nice, to have that point of contact between them. They’d never had anything like that before, never knew what it was to want something like that. They were just two touch-starved boys who had finally found a person they could trust enough to let go if need be.

    Summary

    You say good morning when it's midnight
    Going out of my head, alone in this bed
    I wake up to your sunset, and it's driving me mad
    I miss you so bad, and my heart, heart, heart is so jet-lagged

     

    Or, Neil and Andrew are living apart. And it's fine. Except when it isn't.

    Summary

    Hands, warm and steady and gentle. Calloused and scarred, a map of atrocities. Andrew wasn’t sure when those hands had given up their act of aggression and slipped into reverent means of taking Andrew apart piece by piece until all that was left was an unguarded display of trust. Andrew wasn’t sure when he had stopped missing Neil’s grasping and pulling and fell for the heady experience of allowing someone to kiss him until control meant nothing.

    --------------------------

    After an argument Andrew and Neil have one of their typically homoerotic and distressingly poetic but also stupid conversations. Andrew is a gay disaster and they deserve so much love :))

    Summary

    “I probably have a million and change scattered around that I could get access to.” Neil tells him, but rushes to finish, “but I probably won’t try and get the money, unless I have some better reason to use it and get rid of it. I don’t feel like carrying around blood money.”

    Or

    Neil Josten still has money left over from the run. He decides to spoil Andrew with it.
