    Summary

    Summary

    wow. s2.

    while waiting for the wilds to get renewed for s3, i decided to rewrite all the fluffy and important shoni scenes from s2 (minus the breakup scenes/angsty shoni scenes without happy endings. so i wrote a ridiculous amount of words about our favorite disaster gays instead of doing normal things like a normal person. enjoy.

    some tw's: mentions of homophobia, religious questioning, child abuse, sexual assault, violence, suicide
    i'll include specific warnings at the beginning of the chapters or sections that involve triggering themes.

    (title is from the song MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT by elley duhé, which for some reason reminds me of these two.)

    Summary

    Shelby lets her arms drop to her side, stepping back. “And what’s all that about us being fuck buddies? Is that really what you thought of me?”

    “Well, what would you have called it?” Toni says, standing also. She has no idea how this conversation got away from her, but now she’s chasing to catch up, and she doesn’t like the feeling.

    “What would I have called it?” Shelby repeats. She blinks, green eyes darkening. It’s a jungle Toni’s waded through many times, only now she doesn’t know the path anymore. All she can do is stand there, waiting for Shelby to say something else, and eventually, she does. “I would have called us friends, Toni.”

    \\

    The fic in which Shelby is a singer and Toni is the new drummer for her band. It's a dream come true for both... except that they haven't seen each other in four years. Not since they had a no-strings, FWB relationship in college. Now, on the cusp of a world tour, they have to decide whether they leave the past in the past, or let themselves relive it in the present.

    Summary

    “Doctor Goodkind, have you been Googling me?” Toni says, eyes sparkling.

    “It was one time,” Shelby mumbles.

    “And?” Toni says, arching her eyebrow.

    Shelby pushes her chin up, folding her arms. “And I’d rather just get to know the real you, I think.”

    If Toni looks surprised at her flip into forwardness, she doesn’t show it. Her smile just slips from a playful, sloppy grin into a soft smile. “I look forward to it.”

    or,

    Shelby is a surgical resident, and Toni plays for the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team. Told across two timelines, 'before' and 'after,' a chance meeting sets their story in motion.
