    Summary

    Robin looks... pretty. Really pretty.

    The thought should scare her, but it doesn’t, because the alcohol is thrumming behind her ribs and buzzing beneath her skin, liquid courage taking form.

    She decides to admire. She thinks she deserves it, just this once.

     

     

    Or: Robin stumbles upon Nancy at the Halloween party rather than Jonathon. From there, a strange yet profound friendship forms between the two of them. Robin yearns for more and Nancy aches deep inside.

    Summary

    Martha (7:12PM): just thought you’d like to know i saw toni working at the tech desk ;)

    Shelby looks at the text for a long time. She should go down there. She should go down there and just look at Toni and -

    And what? Hope Toni asks her out? Stand there until she does? She can’t ask Toni out herself. What if Martha was completely wrong? She’d never survive the embarrassment of that rejection.

    Okay, so that plan might not work. Shelby stares at her laptop in front of her. Without even thinking, she picks up her water bottle and holds it above the keyboard.

    Just as she’s about to tilt it and absolutely destroy her laptop, she thinks, “They’re not going to be able to fix that, dumbass.”

    So she sets the water bottle back down.

    OR

    The one-shot where Shelby purposefully breaks her laptop so she can see that Toni girl at the campus tech desk.

    Summary

    Sam and Deena are next-door neighbors, and they inevitably and enthusiastically become best friends... until childhood gives way to tragedy, grudges, and regret.

    By the time they make it to high school, Sam and Deena are still next-door neighbors but also sworn enemies... until high school introduces bigger threats that they will need to face together.

    Faking a relationship might be a bad idea. But it might be the only way for Sam and Deena to understand their shared past and their feelings for each other.

    Summary

    Josh's and Kate's wedding is beautiful- nearly perfect, even. Deena is happy for them and the new chapter opening in their life- of course she is.

    There's just one problem.

    One look.

    Just one, that’s all Deena needs. All she needs to be able to get rid of the heavy feeling in her stomach, the tingling that’s now in her fingers. One look, and it’ll keep her satiated for the rest of the ceremony. One look, and the urge to search for a special pair of blue eyes ever again will disappear.

    Deena fails.
