    Summary

    Darcy is at the kitchen sink when Nick comes in the door, elbow deep in soapy water and frantically washing what looks like half the dishes and cutlery in the apartment. Nick toes off his shoes and laughs, because when it comes to Darcy’s dish-hoarding habit he has discovered that life is easier if he chooses to find it entertaining rather than annoying.
    “So I see Tara is coming over,” he says, shrugging off his coat and hanging it over the back of a chair. “What kind of a timeline are we looking at here, and more importantly, have you dealt with the floordrobe situation?”

    Summary

    “Ugh,” Tao rolled his eyes. “You’re insufferable.” 

    “Huh?” Nick finally turned his head back to Tao. “What do you mean?” 

    “With the goo-goo eyes and the flirting,” Tao huffed. “It’s nauseating.” 

    “Wh–” Nick flushed. “I don’t—I’m not—”

    Summary

    He lets out a heavy sigh. “My jumper has a hole in it.”

    His friends blink at him, obviously not following. “So, buy a new one, then?” 

    “I just,” he searches for the words to explain this feeling, the discomfort he sometimes feels when he looks in the mirror, his reflection becoming more and more foreign to him each day. “I hate clothes shopping. When I was little I always just let my mum pick everything out, and when I got older I just bought what my friends were buying for the most part. Not that I don’t like my joggers and hoodies and plain blue jeans, but like…I don’t think—I don’t know if that’s really me anymore.” 

    OR: Tara and Darcy help Nick find his new style.

    Summary

    "I wish I'd known you when I was younger. I wish I knew then what I know now"

    TLDR: what if Nick had met Charlie way before the series started? How would that affect their relationship?

    Summary

    “Nick, you in here?”

    That voice sends a cold shock of panic down Nick’s spine. It sounds so close, and as he breaks away and spins his head towards the door, Harry stands there, mouth agape and eyes as wide as saucers. Nick breaks away from Charlie, desperately trying to climb to his feet in a futile attempt to hide what’s already going to be public knowledge by morning. Charlie’s glancing up at him, looking at Nick in a way that makes his heart tear in half, so painfully that he has to look away, because somehow Harry’s awful, shocked face is easier to take in than Charlie being in pain.

    “No fucking way,” Harry breathes, that voice he does where it sounds on the brink of a laugh, “no fucking way.”

    ———————

    Harry finds Nick too early. Secrets get covered too late.

    Summary

    How do you tell someone who likes you that you don’t like them back, and not for any reason you can fathom, or anything they did that you can name—except that there is a reason, Nick admits to himself, feeling the slightly queasy sensation of a pint of bubblegum-flavoured milk settle in his gut, and there is something Imogen did, and it’s called not being Charlie.

    OR, Nick doesn’t kiss Charlie at Harry’s party. It changes things.
