    Summary

    Mary died before she was able to runaway with Nathaniel so Nathan sold him off to the Ravens as promised. But not before he learned how to handle a blade better than Lola and built a mind sharper than his father's blades. Exy was his ticket to freedom but there is no freedom in the Nest for someone like him.
    --

    "This might just be the season to end all season, folks. With Kevin Day coming back from an injury that many thought would end his career only to join a team like the Foxes and plan to go up against not only the best team in NCAA Class I Exy but also his own brother, Riko Moriyama. The sons of Exy, head to head, who would've thought?"

    "Definitely not me, John. But let's not forget the new player the Raven's just debuted. Currently the talk of the nation, that Wesninski."

    He listened with rapt attention as the reporters continued dissecting the upcoming season and a part of him just couldn't believe it. Then the television was suddenly switched off and he turned to face Riko. A rather pleased Riko who gave him a smile that held the promise of pain.

    "Come."

    He got up.

    Summary

    Neil’s grin is audible as he replies. "Riko’s antics getting outed to the public would make him a liability. And I do remember telling you that threats need to be dealt with accordingly."

    Kevin's stomach lurches into his throat with the conclusions he jumps to. "So, you’re gonna go back to the Nest?" He asks quietly. Slowly. Unsure how to feel about Neil putting himself in that situation again. He can't do that, right? He has other things to worry about now.

    Neil hums disapprovingly. "Try again," He offers.

    Kevin does. "You're... coming to Palmetto?"

     

    The au where Kevin doesn't have full confidence in Andrew's ability to stand between him and his lurking demons after only spending a few months at Palmetto. But with the dangerous card itching to emerge from under his sleeve, does he really need to?

    Summary

    With a flourish, Allison gestures to where Neil and Andrew are standing by the gate.

    "Intense eye contact," she says.

    "Intense eye contact," Matt agrees.

    Dan sighs.

    Neil and Andrew find themselves in the past, just in time for Neil's first year at Palmetto. They're making plans for their second time around now, how much to change and how much to not change. Except...

    Neither of them bothers to tell the rest of the team anything.

    Summary

    The segment’s title declared EXY’S DARLINGS - WHERE WILL THEY GO FROM HERE? in a yellow banner along the television screen's bottom. It was a spotlight feature on where Kevin Day and Riko Moriyama were planning to go after their high school graduation. Of course they were expected to join the best, but a few reporters speculated on favoritism from the Raven’s coach if they signed on at Edgar Allan, and if that’d impact the Exy prodigies’ relationships with their potential teammates.

    Usually his mother would box his ears for looking at anything Exy-related, but he changed the channel long before her shower finished, the black ink on a younger Day’s cheekbone haunting him worse than the date in the corner.

    ( Neil wakes up seven years younger, and, slowly, takes matters into his own hands. )

    Summary

    When Neil Josten gets arrested for a fake ID and thrown into the Juvenile Detention System, he knows that he's running on borrowed time before his father's men catch up.

    His mother is dead, there's nowhere to run, there's nothing left at all but an Exy court at the Oakland County Detention Center that he has to earn the right to play on through good behavior.

    And Neil's never been great at obeying rules.
