    Summary

    There's something terrible escaping the dreamscape, and a ley line winking out. There’s a magician at Harvard and a dreamer in the wild. The world has shifted, and nothing is as it should be. The dreamers are hunted and their dreams have fallen asleep. Everyone wants something: the sweetmetals, the Zeds, the ley line-killing orb. The long-elusive Greywaren.

    The end of the world.

    Ronan Lynch just wants to live. He just wants to know what’s real. And Adam Parrish might be the only person who can help him find the answers he’s looking for. If they can find their way back to each other, they just might be able to forge a new world for dreamers and dreams alike.

    This is Adam's story, which, of course, is also Ronan's story—an alternate Book 3 of the Dreamer Trilogy, beginning with Adam's missing perspective through CDTH and MI.

    Summary

    In which Gansey matches with Adam on Tinder, solely for his institutional access to JSTOR. And no other reason.

    Inspired by my post on tumblr "gansey texts adam at 4 am begging for his university jstor login" as well as my friend’s strategy to find free wifi in new places by swiping right on every single guy in an area and asking them for tips.

    Summary

    It didn’t help his mood that they seemed to be taking all their cues straight from a bad how to help a friend who’s going through a breakup wikiHow article; breakup playlists he wouldn’t listen to, invitations to movie nights he hadn’t taken them up on, a bottle of Prosecco he had given to a girl who lived down the hall from him…

    And now they had decided to try setting him up on dates, apparently.

    Summary

    Matthew is still swaying as if drunk. His face looks confused, closed off, and for a second Adam feels he is on a dirt track on the side of the road, Opal at his heels swaying until she collapses against the car as Ronan is unmade.

    Oh. Oh.

    “Declan,” Adam says, feeling the panic rise in his throat, “what’s happening to Matthew?”

    Summary

    Declan’s life is supposed to go like this: graduate high school, live at the Barns, work for his father’s illegal dreaming business until one or both of them dies.

    When Ronan finds Niall’s body, Declan’s options open up.

    Or “five times Adam and Declan lied about their lives back in Virginia while at Harvard, and one time they didn’t”.

    Summary

    **This is POST MISTER IMPOSSIBLE, so spoilers abound!! However, I'm not planning to resolve a lot of MI plot points. There are just too many.**

    Adam's got a few problems--the ley line is dead, the person who could wake it isn't so sure she wants to, and his friends found out he's been lying to them.

    None of it hurts quite as much as the fact he's pretty sure he's just been dumped.

    Summary

    He keeps remembering the chafe of Ronan’s shoulder against his ribs as they got oriented in his little bed, the glisten of tears and nightwash wringing his lovely eyes, the lonely twist in his unguarded late-night voice over the phone, the one that Adam had almost liked, because it meant that he was indisputably missed. It was worse, that Ronan had been trying so hard for Adam, because it was easier to tell when he stopped.

    Adam's perspective throughout Mister Impossible, as his worry reaches a fever pitch, and the two versions of himself begin to converge.

    Summary

    That was the plan. Adam was normally so good at planning. He’d taken all the necessary little steps—he’d found himself a job at the library to have some extra money for things like new shoes and haircuts and bowling trips. He’d tried extra hard to appear friendly and approachable on the first days of class, so that when they got group projects assigned he wouldn’t be the odd one out incapable of finding himself  a group. He hadn’t told anyone he couldn’t hear out of his left ear, because that could lead to more questions that would definitely collide with him not being weird anymore.
    But nothing had actually changed after Adam had moved out, had it? He could get himself to a different state but he would always carry some things with him.
    It had taken Ronan ninety minutes to notice.
     

    (Adam has lied to everyone else about where he comes from, so why does lying to Ronan feel different? For the first week of the Mister Impossible Countdown on tumblr: Adam's College Experience!)

    Summary

    This version of him was standing in the corner at an off-campus party with Harvard pretension almost oozing out of the walls, and he was trying not to look too sulky, because he’d promised Adam he’d behave. Adam hadn’t needed to ask, actually. Ronan had planned to be on his best behavior to make up for the murder crabs.

    For the prompt "are you jealous?" + "I didn't like the way they were looking at you."

    Summary

    "If he really thought about it, though, losing Ronan wasn’t like losing a kidney at all. It was more like losing a lung. It was more like losing his mind. But Adam didn’t let himself think about that— he had gotten very good at compartmentalizing."

    adam copes with ronan's disappearance. featuring: a contemplative walk around a deserted college campus, daydreaming at a house party, a dorm room ritual, and lots of repressed emotion.

    Summary

    When Ronan Lynch left him, cold water poured down his body leaving him cold and frozen. And in his short life, Adam Parrish had collected many moments like that, yet no one matched the hurt and stupor Ronan had left behind. At first, he hoped it to be a joke, then he saw the look in his lover’s eyes and understood it wasn’t. He tried to find a lie between his words, but one thing Ronan never did was lying. The next day, he took his things and went back to his dorm room, exactly as he was roughly asked to. He swore never to return to the Barns, or near Virginia, for the rest of his life. Exhausted and broken hearted, Adam closed the door, crying himself to sleep. There was one single throbbing question in his mind.

    Why?
    -
    Basically 15k words of Adam pining after Ronan, adopting Declan and Matthew along the way... and viceversa.

    Summary

    "It’s just frightening. That someone would do that to another person, drug them so they lose control over their own body and become completely helpless. What kind of absolute scumbag goes in for that? There’s nothing acceptable in touching someone without their consent,” Gillian grimaced in disgust.

    If Adam hadn’t already had Ronan in his line of sight, he would have missed it, it happened so fast.

    (Or: an overheard conversation between Adam and one of his college friends leads to a difficult discussion, and to Ronan coming to terms with certain events in his past.)
