    Summary

    After being forced to drop out of the Olympics due to a knee injury and then dropping a girl on her cheer team in a viral failed stunt video, Chess is starting to get really tired of high school.

    But no matter how awful the rest of her life is, she knows she'll always have her best friend, Kate - who is just her best friend, no matter what certain girls on their cheer team like to say. Because they're Chess and Kate, Kate and Chess, inseparable, each other's #1 person.

    Except then a new girl with a pride pin joins their squad, and all of a sudden, all of Kate's attention is on her instead of Chess. Chess doesn't want to be a shitty best friend, but something in her is jealous every time she hears Eva's name - and she doesn't understand why.

    Plus, all of a sudden, she can't seem to take her eyes off of Cairo Adekoya, no matter how hard she tries.

    Chess doesn't have many things about her life all figured out, but her feelings about Kate and Cairo were always one of them - at least, she thought they were.

    Summary

    That night, they had curled up together, and fallen asleep peacefully, dreaming of happiness and peace and of each other.

    Kate’s last thought before she drifted off to sleep was a wish for the world to never change.

    The world changed.

    Summary

    This isn’t a team. They aren’t even standing in a real circle – Chess’s arms are wrapped around Kate by the door while Farrah’s laying on the bleachers and Riley just keeps talking. And maybe Cairo’s just being cynical, maybe this is all going to be fine, but she thinks that their failed routine might have snapped whatever tenuous thread that had tied them together.

    OR

    how the team becomes a team

    Summary

    (Previously titled "i just wanted a tigers group chat fic (and the watt canon died)".)

    Cairo convinces Riley that the sleepover may not be the best way to win the group's approval as the new captain, so she creates a group chat instead. It, and the school year, go about exactly as well as you'd expect it to. That is to say, absolutely not well at all.

    Welcome to hell!

    --

    (Alternate Universe: Everyone Lives / No One Dies - The events in canon that take place before the sleepover like the fall are still here, so there will probably be some angst at times, but it's mainly fun! Also, Riley doesn't want to kill anyone because I love her and I said so. Checkateva is my end game goal but there's definitely hints of other things.)

    Combination of group chat shenanigans and actual writing / content!

    Summary

    Those romcoms Kate’s sister made her watch left out a lot of practical advice about asking your crush out. They don’t mention how awkward it is to stand outside to her window at 3 in the morning, with nothing but a rock and a prayer.

    They also don’t talk about how hard it might be to keep moving forward.

    It wasn’t nothing.

    Kate thought about this often. Wondered if Chess knew that it wasn’t nothing, too.
