    Summary

    Andrew’s aware he’s not like other people. He knows. Considers this as he observes Nicky, Kevin and Neil arguing over what should be allowed within Kevin’s dietary restrictions. Andrew has been stacking sugar packets on top of each other to make a pyramid.
    He’s not stupid. He can see his family making inane conversation with each other and getting something like joy out of it. Spends enough time in his head studying their reactions. He supposes he can see some value. It’s just.
    He doesn’t know how they can all give away something so freely, so frequently, all the damn time.
    ---
    in which andrew spends some time wondering if he's whole, if he's enough, if he's happy. neil is patient and bee is contemplative and aaron exists which is enough to get him mocked tbh

    Summary

    The Magic Garden AU

    The garden is Andrew's place. The forest beside it is where Neil falls, with a vial in his hand and no clue where he is.
    -
    Neil knows he shouldn't stay in town, but Aaron gives him a place to stay, and there are others that Neil can't bring himself to leave. Others like Andrew, with his garden and his silence. So Neil stays and speaks to the flowers and birds, and Andrew begins to wonder about the strange man that speaks the language of rushing water and blooming roses.

    Summary

    There’s a new god in the pantheon; Andrew remembers hearing about the scandal a while back, the newest Demeter having a child with the current Zeus and then going on the run, child in tow. They call him Persephone, the god of springtime and new life, the antithesis of Andrew's realm. It would be ludicrous of Perspehone to ever interact with Andrew at all.

    If only someone told Persephone that.

    --

    “Hades, right?” Persephone asks.

    “Andrew,” Andrew responds, and Persephone hums.

    “Nice to meet you, Andrew. I’m Neil,” Neil responds. Andrew cuts a look sideways to see Neil watching him, something assessing in his gaze. Andrew nods in response. “I have to say, you’re not nearly as scary as everyone says you are,” Neil continues.

    “You barely know me. Give it time,” Andrew says, because the rumors don’t exaggerate. People fear him for good reason.

    “I’d like to, I think,” Neil says. Andrew quirks an eyebrow at him. “Know you,” Neil clarifies. Before Andrew can think of a response, Neil’s head turns. “I have to go. Zeus called for me, and he’ll notice if I’m missing. Thanks for the cigarette.”

    Summary

    The first time Andrew realizes he wants to hear the words, Neil isn’t even doing anything. He’s just sitting there, staring at the horizon with that stupidly dramatic faraway expression of his, and letting the cigarette burn down between his fingers all the way to the filter — an outrageous waste of good nicotine, if you asked Andrew.

    (Or: 20+ times Andrew and Neil say I love you, and one time they say it out loud.)

    Summary

    When Renee starts dating Allison, Andrew figures he'll do what most best friends do: get joint custody, split the holidays, and divide and share assets.

    He didn't know he’d be getting Neil Josten out of the deal.
