    Summary

    It shouldn’t be that big of a deal. Dusty windows and bare oakwood floors, a kitchen tucked into the back wall. Stairs traveling up and out of sight. Bedrooms.

    But Henry’s arms are around him, and it feels like it’s a spring afternoon in Brooklyn.

    It feels-

    Like Alex is moving in with his boyfriend, and they’ve got a home together now, and he’s starting to live for himself, not anybody else. It’s his heart spilling with the sun onto every surface, lighting the whole place up, making it sing, and-

    Alex thinly avoids slamming the moving box onto the ground, but it doesn’t matter either way, because he’s taking Henry’s face in his hands and kissing him.

    (or: the one where alex and henry make a life together.)

    Summary

    Alex finds something tucked away in Henry's desk - something small, insignificant, that he thought would've been tossed out ages ago - and his brain starts spiraling, trying to make sense of why.

    ---

    The thing to do - Alex decides, mind flying at a million miles an hour as he lies in bed that evening, unable to get it to shut off long enough for him to sleep - is to do an experiment of sorts. If there’s one thing his brain likes, it’s logic. Chronological lists, including everything from his exact graduation requirements to a timeline of David’s walks built around their work schedules to the groceries they need for the week, scratch that itch in a way that so few things do for him, for example.

    What he needs is data, a voice in his head that sounds suspiciously like Nora finally settles on. More examples to work with, more pieces to the puzzle, more clues that he can list out until connections can be made.

    So he starts leaving little notes everywhere.

    Summary

    “So,” Henry says, stepping up behind him and wrapping his arms around Alex’s waist, “this is home?”

    “Ya,” Alex breathes, slipping his chain back inside his shirt, his hand brushing over the ring that sits there, “one of them anyway.”


    Alex and Henry, and what it means to be home.

    Summary

    A collection of one-shots - some set during the book, some set after - each based around a lyrical selection from a song off Taylor Swift's "Lover" album, because it seems we all have collectively decided that that album belongs to Henry and Alex.

    ---

    Final Chapter - "Daylight"
    In which Alex and Henry get married, share a very famous kiss, and exchange their own, hand-written vows privately after the fact.
     
    "Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that I would get this moment and have it mean something.”

    Alex takes a step closer to him, until their feet are tangled together between them. “Yeah?" He reaches up to settle his arms on Henry's shoulders, to gently pull him down to his level, fingers fiddling with the soft tufts of hair covering the nape of his neck. The crowd below falls significantly quieter, like they're holding their breath in anticipation, and it pulls a smirk out of Alex to hear just how wrapped around their fingers they have the world in this moment. "Well then, I suppose you owe me a kiss, husband."
