    Summary

    Henry and Alex were best friends growing up until they went to separate colleges and they grew apart. When they see each other again as adults, against the odds, both living in the same city again, will it be a joyful reunion or will the pain of the years apart get in the way? How do you become friends again when there is so much of the past in the way?

    Summary

    Oscar gets in close and bluntly asks, “Earlier. In the bathroom. Did you do it?”

    Alex scoffs, “No. Don't be a perv. Why would you wanna know that anyway?”

    Oscar rolls his eyes. “Mind out of the gutter, chamaco. Did you propose?”

    Ah.

    Summary

    "God, I haven't seen you in fourty-four days," Alex suddenly spits, and Henry feels the pain of his words in his own chest, like ice replacing the blood in his veins. Because that's it, isn't it? Fourty-four days of separation. Fourty-four days of waking up to an empty bed, of making coffee along with his tea only to realize that Alex isn't there to drink it, of long meetings without any of Alex's witty jokes, of cold hands on chilly autumn walks because Alex isn't there to warm them up.

    Maybe it's the simple fact of hearing for the first time, or maybe it's the tipping point of the taxing day, but Henry feels something inside of him snap, and —

    And all he knows is that he needs to see Alex now.

    Summary

    The first night of camp with Henry is always weird. Weird in the sense that they haven’t seen each other in nearly eleven months, but Alex knows that Henry has been thinking about him in the months leading up to camp. Alex is guilty of it too; often the first thing he thinks of after applying to be a counselor is seeing Henry, Henry and his stupid blond hair and stupid English accent and stupidly gorgeous face, and thinking about just how he could outdo him in pranks this year.

    Alternatively, the camp counselor AU that nobody asked for.

    Summary

    Alex Claremont-Diaz has it all. His mom won the election, he’s got the perfect boyfriend. He gets to love Henry out loud. Everything is great. Perfect.

    Except for the itch under his skin every time he goes outside, and the tightness in his chest when he goes online, and the fact that he can’t fucking sleep.

    But it's fine. He's fine. Really.

    —-
    Or: after the emails, Alex Claremont-Diaz isn’t fine.
