4 Works in Dave/Original Character(s)
Jade spends a college term across borders and Dave spends a college term missing her.
Dave has lived a sheltered life. He doesn’t know the epic feel of swords cutting through air, through wood, smacking on skin and raising welts. He doesn’t understand the nasty feel of defeat or the joy of victory at three in the morning after nine hours of sparring only to land a single hit on a forearm. He doesn’t know the taste of weed on the first hit or how much different—better—it is on the second and the third but how it leaves an ashy feel in his mouth at the last of the bong to the point where it’s almost a requirement to drink some apple juice. He has never experienced the buzz he gets from the drug. Most of all, he doesn’t know what rape is. He doesn’t know the feeling of idiocy that accompanies this. He doesn’t know because, in the Phi Timeline, Dirk wasn’t there to teach him these things and beat his ass when he finds out about his liking weed (but not his addiction, no, Dave was never addicted, true and honestly to his heart).

A request from my account over on quzilla. :)
It’s during freshman orientation that Dave first spots his old high school crush. It comes a bit of surprise, because he assumed the other boy was destined for college in New York. He certainly talked about it a sufficient amount. It’s enough to make the larger boy freeze, hands clenching around his fresh schedule, the paper crinkling. Oh and Kurt looked gorgeous as always, so much so that Dave’s old emotions hit him again like a freight train, barreling through his blood and making his heart beat fast. He swallows, turning away from that excited face and heading off into the other direction.
