    Summary

    Stepping over the collapsed door is a boy, must be around his age, got that bright spark in his blue eyes that spits outraged and unaffected seventeen with the broad shoulders and gloved hands of someone who’s lived far too much for his age. Michael looks at him and then he squints so the image comes into focus, even if it hurts his head to do so. He’s got something in his hands, and there’s fire coming from it. It’s a blow-torch.

    or: michael's only half-good, in a world where you're either good or bad.

    Summary

    luke has listened to 5 seconds of summer all his life. when the lead singer, leo, died, and the band split up, it hurt for him just as much as it would for the next fan. but now, a good decade later, when luke finds out they want to get together for a last reunion tour, he wants -- no, he needs -- this. he'd never dream of replacing leo. all he wants is a chance to be part of this.

    Summary

    luke hemmings no. 16 has just come out in a press conference. nothing changes, it still feels like lying, only now everybody knows he's a liar.
    ashton irwin no. 7 has just been transferred to another club, but the other players still don't trust him. nothing changes, except for his increasingly worse reputation.

    nothing fucking changes. nothing ever does.
    except this season, except for these next few games, except when they're together. then everything changes.

    Summary

    ashton is struggling with life while mourning the life he could have had. he ends up agreeing to go to a party with his friends, when all hell breaks loose and a kid gets shot. before the trauma even properly sets in, ashton's already visiting comatose luke hemmings, becoming addicted to baring his soul to the one person who can't tell him he's wrong. then luke wakes up, and it turns out he is wrong: it's not very smart to carry the weight of the world on his shoulders. and, for both of them, the healing starts.
