    Summary

    “So… you want to kiss other people?” Jack asks, before he’s really thought about what the words mean.
    Bitty looks at him so hard, like his gaze is trying to pierce through him. “I guess… yeah. I do.”
    Bitty’s admission hangs over the table.
    “Oh.”
    Jack feels like he’s floating in midair, in the long stillness before he starts to fall.
    “Jack?”
    Suddenly, everything slots into place. Oh god.
    “You’re leaving me.”
    Or, what happens when Bitty needs time and doesn’t ask Jack to wait.

    And Jack doesn’t.

    Summary

    Adam Parrish works as a sober companion, but he has no idea of the storm that's soon to hit him when Ronan Lynch turns out to be his newest client. (Or the one where Adam Parrish and Ronan Lynch are trapped underneath the same roof for six weeks.)

    *

    Ronan, to his surprise, opened his eyes. For a breathless moment, Adam was transfixed in them. They were the color of the ocean on the most azure of nights, lightning right before it struck the ground, damp hydrangeas on a fog-swept morning. Those eyes gave him chills.

    Summary

    or, how to find yourself (and a minor obsession) at the end of six months in europe

     

     

     

     

    “Were you anywhere before Athens?” Jack asks after a while, and though it’s a standard question for people met in backpackers’ hostels – where have you been? Where are you going? – Eric still hears it more genuinely than those who’ve asked him previously. Almost like Jack is actually interested.
    ---
    in which eric bittle absconds from georgia with half a year of hard-earned savings, and makes the most of his six months before starting college living a backpacker’s dream in europe.

    on the final night of his travels, the night before a giant reality check and with the threat of a future looming over him, he meets a fellow traveler.

    there is etiquette, for sure, about hooking up in a hostel dorm.

    Summary

    “I thought we could be friends,” Derek offers, to which Stiles gets an odd smile on his face.

    “Friends,” he repeats, an odd inflection.

    “Yes, friends.”

    Stiles laughs, just barely. It’s more of an exhalation of breath than it is genuine mirth or anything else, and then he smiles. “I’m pretty good at friends,” he says with a tilt to his head, and Derek clears his throat and has to look away.
