    Summary

    In which Neil, presumed dead, actually survives his suicide attempt. But the Dead Poets soon realize surviving and living are very different things. Learning to live again after deciding to die is an enormous task for anyone, but Neil isn't just anyone. Neil is a Dead Poet, and Dead poets don't just live: they suck the marrow out of life, they scream their verse of the powerful play, they dream the world anew, and they dare to be colorful men and women standing in a sea of sitting gray.

    Summary

    Todd was going to die. Todd was actually going to die, and it was all Charlie's fault. Charlie, primarily, but also the weed and game of truth or dare from the night before. Damn Neil for going to mandatory rehearsals!

What starts off as a fairly regular term soon starts spinning out of control as the budding free thinkers clash with the rigid authority at Welton. [Title, Halsey]

    Summary

    It wasn’t the first time he went outside during the night. It was something he had been doing for a while. Sometimes he felt the need to sneak away from all the stress he suffered. It wasn’t hard. He waited for Neil to fall asleep and then he would leave the room. He felt his boyfriend cared too much for him and didn’t want the boy to get worried.

    Summary

    But the stars sing, sisters in their pale tinkling laughs, and in the midst of sleep, soft and sudden, you find you miss a name, and eyes and two valleys for collarbones, too. And so you frown and bid Death farewell and slide down her thighs, back to where the ground is no longer an afterthought or a memory and your wind gust of a life inhales another lungful.

    Summary

    Dying a month before Christmas was not what Neil had been planning on. Going to his parents, maybe. Hanging out with Charlie, definitely. It hadn’t been Neil’s fault. It more had to do with the icy roads, the winds, and of course the raging blizzard that had been going on. He doesn’t remember it all perfectly, only that his wheel had locked up, and then the horrible crunching and smashing noises as the other vehicle had slammed into his side of the car.

    Also; Neil is given a chance at becoming an angel if he can convince a hopeless Todd to believe in the Christmas spirit.

    Summary

    The new school year had just started. Dean Nolan had had his annual speech babbling about tradition and discipline. One of the new students, Todd Anderson had been sitting there, listening. He felt frightened about the way those other guys chattered down, what they were ought to believe in. And he could see the force witch which it was done. The stern looks on their parents faces, covered up with fake pride but no love at all. That was the moment in which he decided and truly knew by himself that he could never ever be happy in this prison.
