    Summary

    The James Maguire of it all had always been complicated - ever since he’d kissed her for the first time in that dusty house in Donegal, things had been complicated. It was sort of always destined to be, when you developed feelings for a close friend. Maybe when they were kids, it might have worked out, but they weren’t children anymore, and it was silly, to live a fantasy where James had waited all those years for her, silly to think that he still felt the same as he had back when they were seventeen. Erin might be fanciful, but she wasn't naive - not anymore.

    or - Erin's final year of university brings about some reflection, introspection and the realisation that maybe the reason she had never fallen in love with anyone else was because she had never fallen out of love with James Maguire.

    Summary

    James gave her a reassuring smile. “You can love somewhere,” he began, and maybe he meant somewhere and someone, too, but Erin wasn’t ready to have that conversation. “And still need to leave it for a while. Derry will always be here,” he reassured, reaching out and giving her knee a gentle squeeze.

    “And you?” she breathed the words. "Will you always be here?"

    - or, a series of moments over their university years where james and erin fall together, fall apart, and find their way home to each other.
