Patton Sanderson makes friends with outcast Virgil Samuels, mostly elective mute and said to be Soulless. Patton, however, knows better - he's seen it. Virgil's Soulmate is just shy. Unlike his own, Roman, all dramatics and red ink and Disney references.
When Virgil's family almost beat him to death and abandon him outside of a hospital, Patton's parents take in the quiet boy their son has befriended and show him what a real family is like.
High school is a hell of bullies and anxiety attacks, except for the metal band Virgil, Talyn, Joan, and a few friends start. Skip ahead to college, the band taking off, and the upcoming 'date' of Patton meeting Roman, something else also happens that no one was expecting.
I mean, what are the odds, right?

The title says it all, I'm open to requests, but I don't want this story to revolve around OTPs
Virgil only wants to protect those he loves at all costs. What happens when he can't hide it anymore?
What is up everybody?! A heads up, this fic is graphic and gets DARK but I fix it! Plz heed the tags and if there's something in there that could be triggering for you, plz take care of yourselves! I assure you that I have this whole thing outlined, so it won't get abandoned!
EDIT: I've now gone through and shortened all scene break lines (tildes and dashes) to five symbols, so it's now more accessible to folks who use screenreaders! If you see any I missed plz lmk!!
I try to keep my stuff accessible, including keeping chapters not much longer than 3500 words, so if you have ideas to make my fic more accessible plz lmk!
This fic is not used to represent D.I.D. If you want resources on D.I.D., lmk in the comments section or on Tumblr!
I now have an amazing beta by the name of Jasper01! She's so awesome!!!
I project onto mostly Virgil, so what he experiences I experienced myself while I was being trafficked, just so you know where this fic is coming from.

Whatever you draw on your skin appears on your soulmate's skin.
Virgil's mom hated soulmates. She taught him that having a soulmate would only ever bring him pain. She taught him that any mention of even the word soulmate would lead to punishment.
So he spends his entire life pretending that his soulmates don't even exist, ignoring the bright colors that appear on his skin.
It's for the best
But his soulmates have something to say on the matter.
Amid the confusion of adolescence and growing up in foster care, Virgil also has to deal with the fact that strange happenings follow him wherever he goes. Rumors are beginning to spread that he's cursed.
Despite that, two men come to visit, promising a better future. It's kind. It's inspiring. And it's almost too good to be true. These men have nothing to gain by loving Virgil as their own, and yet, they embrace him.
Virgil is thrust into a new life: one brimming with magic, mystery, and the knowledge that all is not what it seems.
He wants to make his new parents proud... but how far can he go when he doesn't even trust himself?
