    Summary

    It’s weird. April knows she isn’t doing anything wrong or explicitly gay, but whenever anyone gives her and Sterling a second glance in the hallway, she can’t help but notice and wonder what the rumor mill is churning out this time. Do people think they just rekindled their old friendship? Do they think it’s something more? Do they think she’s so cold hearted that it’s just a case of keeping her enemies close?

    April has no idea.

    So when Ezekiel corners the two of them in the cafeteria to find out if hell finally froze over, she is slow to answer.

    “Sterling and I are...friends,” April says reluctantly. But Sterling smiles like it’s the best thing she’s heard all year.

     Considering the year they’ve had that might even be true.

    After a rough first half to junior year, April and Sterling have decided to retire their rivalry.

    Summary

    This first month since her father got back from prison has been inarguably worse, almost numbingly so, April going about her routine like a robot, paralyzed of what will happen if she breaks it. It’s been day after day of school, clubs, dinner, homework, lying awake in bed, heart pounding fast with fear about what resides in her house, finally falling asleep, having an erotic dream about Sterling Wesley, waking up in a state of both fear and arousal, taking a very long shower, repeat.

    It’s been exhausting to say the least. And April’s not stupid, she’s known it would have to end at some point.

    She just didn’t expect it to end with a fire on her front lawn.

    Summary

    “We’ll get ‘em next time, huh?” Sterling’s voice cracks a little. She swallows the lump in her throat.

    April cuts her eyes in Sterling’s direction, a well-practiced sneer pulling at her lips.

    “I’m sorry, why are you speaking?”

    Sterling keeps her eyes locked on the numbers lit up above the door, noting the way they are very slowly making their descent. Her teeth tug at her bottom lip, nibbling at the skin there. She can do this. She can get through one (1) elevator ride with the object of her... affection? Lust? No. April simply objects to the thought of her. Sterling made sure of that when she whacked John Stevens with her gun.

    or

    Sterling and April get stuck in an elevator after a debate. There's things they need to resolve. And then some.

    Summary

    “Sterling,” April says again, almost…tenderly? “Baby, you’re awake.”

    Baby?

    “What—why are you here?” Sterling manages to choke out, and that’s when April’s face falls.

    As far as Sterling's memory is concerned, she's a straight high school junior with a sweet boyfriend and a loving, uncomplicated family.

    Turns out, a lot changed in the last year and a half that she doesn't remember.

    Summary

    There’s something about it, about lying here with April by her side, with nothing but the dim light of her bedside lamp, with April being so simple and honest, that makes Sterling’s own honesty claw its way out of her throat.

    “I’m not really good at sleeping, anyway.”

    Or, six times April helps Sterling fall asleep.

    Summary

    With John Stevens out of prison, Dana Culpepper in prison, Sterling dealing with an identity crisis, April dealing with a boyfriend crisis, and Blair dealing with everyone else, surely there's no way Willingham's production of Jesus Christ Superstar can go off without a hitch. Especially not with the ever-present tension between the assistant director and the female lead.

    Summary

    As Sterling sits in the backseat of her parents car amongst a high pile of suitcases she feels the pounding of her heart slowly rising until it’s in her throat and in danger of coming up along with her breakfast. All because she’s on her way to college and moving into her first dorm.

    Summary

    Mrs. Wesley smiles at her daughter and then April just watches as they start singing the song together, Sterling clumsily moving along to the music until Mrs. Wesley’s hands guide her, twirling Sterling as the late afternoon sun lights up both of their blonde hair.

    April doesn't quite know how to name what that sight does to her. Her friend - her best friend - so happy at home, like she was built to dance in this kitchen with her mother, makes her heart do that thing it always does around Sterling, feel these new ways to be content. But then, something darker slides in her ribs, this knowledge that she could never do this with her own mother, that same ease would never live in the walls of her home.

    Or, five times April watches Sterling dance, then joins her.

    Summary

    She isn’t entirely sure why she even answered when Sterling called, except for the fact that it’s Sterling, and answering her calls has become something of a reflex.

    April fixes a Wesley family dinner, and ends up getting more than she bargained for.

    Summary

    All April’s softly hung over brain can manage to think, aside from the obvious, is of course.
    Of course some completely random chain of events starting with something as absurd as asbestos would somehow lead her back to her hometown and into Sterling Wesley’s bed not 24 hours after getting off her flight.

    OR

    April and Sterling try casual hook ups over the summer. Neither are casual.

    Summary

    To be fair, Sterling and Luke did date for a significant amount of their developmental period so it makes sense that they have some similarities.
    Blair just wishes it wasn’t picking up a guitar after experiencing loss.
