    Summary

    Neil’s overeager coworker, Nicky, has been nagging him about dating for as long as they’ve known each other. Constantly asking why he’s single and how ‘someone as good looking as him isn’t seeing anybody.’ On a night where he is particularly sick of this question - and possibly a little tipsy - Neil answers with the first name that comes to mind: Andrew Minyard, his neighbor. What Neil didn't know until now is that Andrew Minyard just happens to be Nicky’s cousin. Neil is adamant that he stick to his mistake rather than confessing it was all a lie, but that means getting Andrew to go along with it.

    Summary

    “Besides, you’re not a stranger,” Neil says.

    “You did not know my name until a minute ago,” Andrew points out.

    “I’ve been petting your cat everyday for the past month, though.”

    “That does not make us friends.”

    “I didn’t say we were.” Neil tilts his head, the hint of a smirk on his lips. “We’re neighbors.”

    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.”
