    They were going to be okay--yes, they would break down and have awful, awful days in which it would seem life would be impossible to go on, but in the end it was going to be okay.
    They might have to keep saying it enough times to finally believe it, but it was going to work out.

    (they could and might all be connected except the hp au)

    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.”

    (Andrew's recent Google search history: ambient sounds to help you sleep, what qualifies you for a service dog, why do cats like to sit in boxes, daily horoscope scorpio, does quoting shakespeare mean you're being flirted with, buzzfeed quizzes food, how to be neighborly)

    ((or: in which Andrew and Neil are neighbors who do various neighborly things))

    Summary

    The third time Nicky asks him about it, he says, “I am already dating someone.”

    This is a lie.

    Nicky’s face unfurls like a clearing sky, eyes widening and jaw dropping. “You don’t say! Who is it?”

    Andrew’s mind flies in a thousand different ways, grasping for an answer, a diversion, another lie. Out of the corner of his eye, he glimpses Neil walking out of the locker room, hair damp and bag slung over his shoulder.

    “Neil,” Andrew tells Nicky, and Nicky gawps, shocked and famished for more information.

    “I am dating Neil,” Andrew says.

    (or: in which Andrew and Neil - due to purely rational, strategical, and beneficial reasons - convince everybody that they are dating)

    Summary

    “Thanks for coming with me,” she says, keeping her eyes trained in front of her.

    “It is not like I had a choice in the matter,” Andrew says, blowing out a stream of smoke through his mouth.

    Renee’s lips curl into a smile. “Maybe you’ll win our next sparring match and I’ll finally have to buy you ten cartons of Haagen-Dazs.”

    “It cannot be worse than tagging along to a bridal boutique.”

    “Maybe,” Renee allows, humor in her voice. “But what kind of man of honor would you be if you didn’t come with me to choose a dress?”

    (or: Andrew is a baker, Renee is a bride-to-be, and Neil is a dressmaker)

    Summary

    Baz Pitch loves, in no particular order; David Bowie, punk music, the feel of old vinyl, the smell of coffee (but not the taste), classic books, magic, David Byrne, the fact that he was raised by his aunt Fiona, and maybe, sometimes, Simon Snow.

    Summary

    Baz Pitch used to fight demons. Now he fights teenagers. Ten years after killing the Humdrum, saving the day, driving into the sunset with Simon and arguing about New Wave, Baz still loves vinyl, sweet coffee, David Bowie (and sometimes Simon Snow). But now he hates his family, tomato plants, lesbian crises, being asked when he's getting married, and Simon Snow’s dad music. Part two of the Rebelverse. Still crazy after all these years.
