    Summary

    "It's a pretty slow day... no ride mishaps, only a few cases of food poisoning. Not much else to talk about." Isak shrugs, looking up at Even. Even feels like a melting rat under the gaze of what must be some ethereal being, because who looks like that after standing in the same spot under a blazing sun for hours on end?

    Even's too distracted to notice that Isak's eyes have wandered elsewhere, now fixated on something behind his head. He doesn't move to see what it could possibly be until Isak says, "It looks like one of the giant stuffed frogs from your booth is trying to get away."

    "What?" Even furrows his eyebrows, turning his head. The group of teenage boys from earlier has found their way into his booth and are now working together to tear down one of the biggest prizes that hang overhead. "Oh, God. They're back."

    ***

    Or, Isak and Even work at an amusement park.

    Summary

    The kollektiv had been Jonas' idea. It was originally part of their plan to conquer the world as they went off to university together—the ultimate bachelor pad with a spare bedroom for hook-ups and a surplus supply of condoms available at any time. It took the death of Isak’s sister to change all of that.

    Their spare room was converted into a football paradise, every door and cupboard childproofed and any alcohol securely locked away, and in moved five-year-old Felix Valtersen. With four equally irresponsible and clueless uncles looking after him, he's bound to turn out okay... right?

    Or: the one where Isak is just trying to raise his nephew as best he can with the help of his best friends. He doesn't expect to fall for Felix's gorgeous football coach along the way.

    Summary

    Dad comes back with two beers in hand. He hands one each to Even and me.

    “So how are your parents?” He asks.

    “Yeah. Good." Even says. "They have stopped coming here for summer. They're in the Seychelles right now.” He looks at me. “I came with friends this year.”

    “No girlfriend?”

    WTF, Dad?

    I cough and mumble, “Personal. Much. Dad?”

    “No." Even says. "No girlfriend. So.”

    I dare a glance at him and he is STARING RIGHT AT ME- like blue bright fucking arrows. I look away. I can’t govern what comes out of my dad’s mouth. Is that why he is looking at me like that? Why is he looking at me like that?

     ========

    Even has just finished University. He decides to spend summer at his parent's holiday house in the Norwegian countryside where he has been coming since childhood. He knows Isak, one of the locals, who has recently graduated from high school and is spending his break helping his dad out at his kayak shop.

    Two boys from different backgrounds, both embarking on new chapters in their lives who find their worlds intertwined during their holidays and on one particularly hot summer break.

    Summary

    When Even let his gaze scan the masses, he caught a pair of green eyes staring at him shamelessly. Even raised an eyebrow, before looking the guy up and down.

    He was tall, even though not as tall as Even, had a really good looking body, slim and firm and defined in all the right places. He was wearing a grey snapback, and Even saw the blond curls spill out from underneath it. Fuck.

    The guy continued to stare at him, now with a smirk on his face, and Even couldn’t really look away anymore.

    Summary

    The Bech Næsheims and the Valtersens have been business partners for years. In order to make their ties even stronger they decide to matchmake their eldest children - Even and Lea during the first common family dinner. Lea is so gone for Even and it's painfully obvious to anyone who has eyes. But all Even can think of is her younger brother, scared, lost in his fears and blushing right in front of him.

    Even starts to pay the Valtersens quite frequent visits. Parents are delighted to see their plan work. Little do they know.

    Bipolar / Social Anxiety AU absolutely no one asked for. I'm sorry for this.
