    Summary

    Neil cooed. He must've had a death wish, "Drew, you like me."

    "I hate you."

    "You find me appealing," Neil rephrased. "You like to look at me. Think I'm 'hot' as Nicky says."

    Andrew grits his jaw. Nicky's advice was distasteful and Neil found himself clinging to it just to piss Andrew off. He wasn't wrong this time.

    "It's called sexual attraction."

     

    Basically Andrew and Neil have a little misunderstanding about how Andrew feels. Its angsty and sweet and ends happily :)

    Summary

    “You guys are so cute,” Dan says.
    Neil matches Andrew’s frown--neither of them appreciate that particular adjective.
    “I’m surprised the monster hasn’t bitten his hand off yet,” Allison laughs.
    “Don’t call him that,” Neil snaps. Andrew’s current state has him feeling defensive.

     

    A migraine causes Andrew to let down some walls in front of the team. Neil takes a wrecking ball to the rest of them with his big mouth.

    Summary

    with time andrew had become good at keeping a certain part of his mind separate: the part that yearned for protection, love, care. he knew all too well the ease with which surfacing vulnerability could overwhelm him, but the more his awareness of his 'inner child' grew the more difficult it was to keep it locked away. they were the same, after all. it was easy to pretend he didn’t want anything, but god, he did. so much that he could barely stop. so much that it haunted him, stole the voice from his lungs.

    and so, the pain was always there. always a dull ache in the center of his chest. always tearing down his defenses until the next bad day, the next breakdown—waiting until the moment he was too vulnerable to stop the way it flooded every cell, every muscle, until he was curling into himself and fighting the urge to wipe it away forever.

    [or, a story about andrew's inner journey as he struggles to reconcile with his wounded inner child.]

    Summary

    andrew had spent years living with the hard lessons a childhood spend in the system had taught him. it was clear. nothing good never lasted. little nobody boys like him could never receive anything but the worst of agonies. to want was to sign your own death warrant. to love was to hand over your heart on a platter. to trust was to offer a gun hilt-first with the nozzle pressing into your heart.

    and no matter what, no matter when, no matter how—he would never be enough. nothing about him would ever be enough. he would only ever be of little consequence, little worth. nothing to cherish, certainly nothing to love.

    and nothing about him would ever be enough to make another stay.

    [or: neil is not home, and andrew spirals.]

    Summary

    Neil was seven the first time he felt it. He was used to pain, accustomed to it by this stage, the feeling of a weight pushing him down and down, suffocating him, his arms and chest and head too heavy, his flesh and bones burning and ripping and scarring. Pain was something he knew all too well. But the pressure he felt deep in his gut and down in between his legs was something that he was too young to even understand, let alone comprehend feeling. And it hurt and ached in a way that he never did before, in a way that left him sobbing quietly into his pillow as his body shook from the pain, his heart aching in his chest equally as bad.

    It was a strange feeling for him, pain being unusual, something he couldn’t understand. For Neil had known pain his whole life. But this, this was something else, something too harsh and deep and heavy, something he wished he would never feel again.

     

    or

     

    Neil and Andrew are soulmates, who can feel each others pain and reside in the back of each others minds, no matter how hard they wish that they didn't.

    Summary

At the end of his time at PSU, he'll have gained a piece of paper and lost everything else he once held close.
    Although, Andrew's life has never gone as he expected and a certain blue-eyed menace isn't done with him yet.

     

    Set alongside 'Brother of Mine' and after "Ink Blotted Memories'.

    Summary

    "It's hard to tell," Andrew threw his legs over the arms of the chair he was sat in. "If you're stupid or just think you're more qualified than you are." Betsy thought about that for a moment.
    "Maybe so," She sat back and rested the warm mug she was holding against her lips. "Give me a chance and let me know, will you?"

     

    a collection of Andrew's sessions with Betsy. (and her best sessions with him.)

    Summary

    Neil grew up with nothing. Yes, he had Hatfotd blood, but he was like Andrew. He had nothing. But now they had each other and they would stop. It would just be cats, game nights, crossword puzzles and obsession with coffee. Not so much red anymore.

    Summary

    Andrew steps back, letting Kevin into his apartment, and closes the door. He turns, watching as Kevin takes in the ridiculous amount of baked goods on the counter, and says, “I’ve been encouraged to pick up a hobby.”

    “Puzzles are a thing,” Kevin comments, setting his bag onto the floor.

    “So are motels,” Andrew retorts, and Kevin scoffs but otherwise stays silent.

    Summary

    it wasn't that andrew didn't trust neil. it was that andrew couldn’t trust himself. he was worried—no, terrified, of being dependent, of taking more than neil could give, of spilling too much of himself on the floor and driving neil away. for neil knew his past, and he knew his secrets, but he was a stranger to the person andrew became when his trauma was too much to handle. he was volatile. he was a patchwork mess of scars and memory, swinging wildly between panic and the kind of explosive rage that often resulted in shattered ceramic and him huddled against a corner of his kitchen, shivering until the memories faded, glass cutting into his hands. neil knew him, but he did not know the andrew who screamed, who begged, who was an amalgamation of the man he was and the child he’d been, who snapped at all who dared come too close and spent his nights huddled under his blankets and whimpering for relief.

    andrew would never call himself insecure, but it was insecurity indeed that plagued him, insecurity that wrapped cold hands around his mind on the nights he could not breathe and warped his thoughts until all he could hear was undeserving, undeserving, undeserving.

    or

    andrew has a bad day. neil helps.

    Summary

    the music was grand, loud, almost ominous. it was mournful, with an elegiac quality to it, raising goosebumps on neil’s arms.

    andrew was not moving with the music, sitting straighter than neil had ever seen him sit, but his hands moved with hypnotic grace, moving fluidly from key to key like water cascading over rocks. as the music edged towards a crescendo cracks started to appear on the mask of apathy he wore: the furrow between his brows deepened, jaw clenching so hard it was evident even from across the room.

    it seemed like the rawest display of emotion he had ever seen from his partner, the delicate, careful skill completely unlike the blank, uncaring apathy he normally displayed.

    or,

    there is a pianoforte in the living room of the cottage andrew and neil rented for the summer, and andrew reveals a hidden talent. conversations ensue.

    Summary

    There's something off about Neil. Andrew's noticed, but he can't tell what's wrong - doesn't even know where to start. And besides, it's not the only thing on his mind. His turbulent relationship with his brother, and plans for the future after college are suddenly looming large as he begins his fourth year. Neil will simply have to tell him if something's bothering him. After all, he promised not to lie to Andrew anymore. Not after everything that they've been through. Not after Andrew told Neil to stay.

    He will tell him if something's wrong. Won't he?

    Summary

    'Aaron should have known something was going on with Andrew when he had agreed to change their deal. It had taken Aaron months to build up the nerve to demand to be let out of it, determined to keep Katelyn no matter what. In the spring of their freshmen year at Palmetto, Aaron finally approached the subject, cornering Andrew in their shared kitchen and laying out his terms. He was not expecting Andrew’s counteroffer: sessions with Dobson once a week and an understanding that if anything happened with Katelyn, Andrew would step in.
    Thoughts of Katelyn, of not having to hide her anymore, took up all the space in Aaron’s mind and he never wondered why Andrew would have relented so easily.
    Looking back, it should have been obvious what was going on.'

    OR
    5 times Aaron should have realized Andrew had somebody, and the one time he met him.

    Summary

    Andrew era o sol, Neil sempre soube disso.
    Andrew era a força que atraia Neil diretamente para ele, sempre o avisando que se queimaria no final.
    Entretanto, Neil nunca soube como descer ― então ele voou cada vez para mais e mais perto. Voou tanto que ultrapassou o sol e alcançou as estrelas.
    E fez sentido. Neil achava que Ícaro também choraria estrelas pelo sol que nunca tocaria.
