    Summary

    Connor succeeded in killing himself.
    Of that, he has no doubt. He’s done. He ended it all. Left behind the people he has hurt.
    .. Ran away.
    Except, it’s never that easy. Life isn’t easy - and neither is death apparently - because he’s still here, helplessly witnessing the affects his choices have on the living.

    Summary

    “Connor...attempted to take his own life. He’s in the hospital right now in a medically induced coma.”
    The moment those words were uttered, Evan Hansen’s heart almost stopped.

    Your standard Connor survives AU. What if Evan told the truth? What happens when Connor wakes up? Will Evan still end up making a difference in the Murphy family and his school? Will all of his problems be solved, or will it lead to different ones?

    This is my first fic I've ever had the guts to publish online, which is super nerve-wrecking, and I hope you enjoy it! Stay safe and happy, friends!

    Summary

    Connor should've been the one to kill himself in the middle of the night, at least that was his plan. After seeing Evan, the guy he called out earlier that day for writing a letter about Connor's sisters, kill himself, Connor's life takes an unexpected turn.

    Especially when he starts seeing Evan, even when he's not high.

    [Or: if Evan committed suicide instead of Connor]
    [This story contains drug abuse, suicide, cursing and all that jazz. If you are sensitive for that kind of stuff, this is your warning]

    Summary

    “Um. Your bracelets. Could you, could you maybe take them off? Sorry, they’re just distracting.”

    Another pause. “Sorry.” Evan says again.

    Connor doesn’t even question it, just making sure his sleeves are rolled down before he offers his boyfriend his arm once again.

    ————————

    All Connor agreed to was letting his boyfriend paint his nails, but he’d severely underestimated just how much else Evan would notice.

    Summary

    "“Evan. EVAN,-.... I’m gay!”

    What.

    It felt like another bubble of glass just shattered around him, like he had heard something that simply didn’t fit with the rest of the puzzle of the situation, like some world changing fact that made him lose footing in his argument completely.

    “Wha-.. uh… wh…”
    Where had his arguments gone? What was he saying? He had no idea what to-... uh.
    There was an awkward silence for a moment, and something was clear, Connor’s emotions hadn’t settled. The storm that came next shook Evan beyond belief.

    “I’m gay, Evan. Gay, homo, fag, you fucking get it?” Was his voice cracking up…? Wha-... Connor sounded so hurt, so much… less intimidating than he usually did."

    Summary

    When Evan Hansen tries to kill himself, he doesn't expect to wake up 9 months earlier with a Connor Murphy running towards him. He was meant to be dead and so was Connor, maybe this was a chance to put things right.

    (AKA Evan tried to die and wakes up back when he broke his arm during the summer. This time, however, Connor is there to help him and they might *spoiler* end up being friends.)
