    Summary

    Despite what many may think, William Poindexter was not born with a mountain of chips on his shoulder. His experiences helped to shape an outlook. An outlook that brings him into conflict with Derek Nurse: the guy whom he’s supposed to sync with on the ice. Ultimately, if he’s to last in Samwell and forge peace with Nursey, Dex needs to reconcile his past-driven views with the reality of the present. Story mostly takes place during the first semester of Year Two (alternatively: the first semester of the Frogs' first year), but there are scenes that take place during his past.

    Summary

    Nearly a year after Nursey disappeared from his life, Dex finally saved up the money to move from the east coast to Hollywood and pursue his dream of being a screenwriter. But to pay the bills, he's working set construction and repair for a soap opera. When he runs into Nursey, who happens to be an actor on that soap, he thinks his luck can't get any worse. But then Nursey and Lardo, the director, convince him to be an actor in the show as well. Dex is sure this is all going to blow up in his face, but he can't seem to say no.

    Summary

    Nursey wouldn’t say that it happened often, but it happened with enough frequency that it was something he started to notice his Sophomore year at Andover. It wasn’t really a thing. He figured he just happened to be one of those people who was in the right place at the right time. Or when he wrote his name down on those slips of paper for raffles, there must not have been too many other people who had done the same. Maybe he had done something amazing, totally excellent, in a past life and now this was the cosmos way of repaying him in this life. Or something. Besides he didn’t really prescribe to the idea that someone could be lucky.

    Summary

    William Pointdexter lives a relatively boring life in a big city that is upturned by the installation of a new coffee shop that he literally stumbles upon on his way home from work. When reason meets whimsy in the form of the cute, yet eccentric new barista that owns the store, we are left to see if Dex is willing to re-examine what means more to him, his brain or his heart.

    "Will felt himself wobble as he tried to wrap his senses around what was going on. He needed to breathe. He needed to focus. Derek, waving in front of Will’s face to get his attention, looked extremely concerned... Will couldn’t tell when he passed out or if he had only said or thought, 'You’re an angel.' "

    Summary

    Lucifer was an angel once.

    That’s what Nursey thinks, the first time he sees William Poindexter.

    Because the boy is beautiful even though he shouldn’t be. Even though he’s doubtless the kind of person who would punch you in the face if you said the words “you” and “beautiful” to him in the same sentence.

    His skin is choked with freckles. It’s potentially more freckle than skin. Not just his face, where his nose and cheekbones are so hyper-pigmented they look tanned, but his collarbones and forearms and knuckles. The close-shaved dark ginger stubble of his hair should make his ears look too big or his mouth too wide but instead it accentuates the long curve of his throat, the cup of velvet skin between the tendons in the back of his neck.

    “You’re the new defenseman?” Nursey asks. “William Poindexter?”

    And the boy turns around and considers him with what might be contempt but what might just be the way his face looks and says, “Yeah?” like its a challenge.

    And Nursey thinks:

    Oh no.

    Summary

    “Ever since I could remember, my MooMaw talked to me about love… it’s one of the most magical things you could ever experience. Now, I knew a thing or two about magic, and about desire. I’m what you call a clairvoyant.”

    When Bitty dreams of the man he’s meant to be with—he has to admit he was a little taken back when fisherman Will Poindexter showed up. The two get married after a day, and suddenly Bitty finds himself in New York City, dispensing advice and sharing visions with his new neighbors. It was all going relatively well until he met skeptical psychiatrist, Doctor Jack Zimmermann. Bitty realizes that maybe his soulmate vision was wrong, but can he fix everything without breaking any hearts? A Zimbits AU based on the 1990s movie The Butcher’s Wife.

    Summary

    2020-2021: Will can admit that something about Nurse has always been magnetic. Standing near him, speaking with him, it’s always reminded him of that first blast of concentrated heat he gets when he walks into a building in the winter. The sudden change uncomfortable until the second it’s not. That’s what Nursey reminds him of.

    Prequel to This Gentle Sting.

    Summary

    Nursey stared up at the stars. He always loved coming out to this clearing with Dex. Away from all the noise of cities and universities, no light pollution. There were more stars here.

    When Dex had first told him that he loved looking at the stars, Nursey had scoffed. It seemed like a nerdy pastime. After all, there were so many more beautiful things that were closer.

    Summary

    Derek stared at his phone. He’d known there was going to be a nor’easter blowing in. He’d just expected it to arrive after he left. He’d expected to wrap everything up before the airport started cancelling flights. And he honestly hadn’t considered that it would be bad enough to stop the train. He'd thought he would have options.

    Summary

    The most frustrating thing about Mr Poindexter, thought Derek, was that he only ever said what he meant plainly; and that he refused entirely to understand anyone who could not speak so.
