    Summary

    Breathe. Just breathe.

    In. Out. In. Out. In.

    It’s not that I don’t try. I see my family, my friends, visiting with their faked smiles and forced laughter, desperately trying to pretend that things are fine, that nothing’s changed. I see them and I want to reach out, I want to look at them and smile and reassure them that I’m here and I’m fine and I’m here, but I can’t, I can’t, I can’t, I can’t.

    Or, the one where Phil struggles with depression, PTSD and being mute, and Dan just wants to hug him.

    Albus and Scorpius enter life after Hogwarts and find that their days aren’t easier without classes and exams. With personal baggage, family obligations, and a wizarding community that’s far more complex than they’d anticipated, Albus and Scorpius have to rely on more than just each other to survive.

    Summary

    Phil wishes he knew Dan better, completely and totally, because they’ve only been friends for two years and that’s by far long enough to love Dan and be worried about him, but it’s not enough to recognize all the demons.

    Summary

    Dan suddenly notices him in the crowd. He isn’t hard to spot, at least to Dan; he can read Phil like the back of his hand even when he doesn’t look like himself. He’s made himself look younger, red hair and freckles. Green eyes stare back into his brown ones, and for a second Phil’s usual features work themselves over his face. Cerulean blue eyes. Black hair. Skin that reminds Dan of that Muggle fairy tale Snow White Phil once read to him. They disappear just as soon after. Dan looks down to see the familiar wand in Phil's hand.

    He looks ready for battle - oh.

    Oh no.
