    Summary

    “It was poetic, if a little heavy-handed. A tragic hero’s death.”

    “I’m not,” James says. “A tragic hero.”

    “I know,” I say. When I stand, he follows me.

    Summary

    “That’s a bullshit answer and you know it, Meredith,” said Alexander, “It’s about who you would fuck not who you’re already fucking.”

    “I asked who you thought was the cutest, I didn’t say anything about,” Wren hesitated “fucking.” Hearing Wren whisper ‘fucking’ in her adorable british accent felt so out of place that Filippa couldn’t help but chuckle.

    -

    Pretty much just a bunch of oneshots of Alexander, Filippa, Meredith, and Wren gossiping about shit.

    Summary

    James was observing him, head tilted slightly to the right. Something akin to concern coloring his face. “Oliver.”

    “Yes?”

    “Come with me.”

    (Or, Oliver is worried that things will change and James takes him to the woods so that they can talk.)

    Summary

    James had always had places he wanted to go. He’s casually mention while flipping through a book that he had wanted to see, say, the Pantheon, and Oliver would accidentally file that information away. There was a lot of stuff like that, things Oliver hadn’t realised he’d memorised until he spent ten years with nothing better to do.

    Summary

    “You have to forgive yourself.” It’s said quietly amongst their calm, Oliver bracing himself for the storm that’s about to come.

    And come it does. He watches the way James is immediately pulled taught, made harsh by the words. “It’s not that easy,” he replies, words clipped with frustration.

    Summary

    Alexander takes the letter from my hands, and I know he sees the name on the envelope because he sets it on the table without opening it, quickly, like the words would burn him if he read them.

    “Oliver,” Alexander says carefully, his voice a mixture of fear, wonderment, and grief. “Are you sure you want me to –?”

    “I need to know if you can see what I see,” I tell him. “You’re the only one who could be objective about it. Meredith’s too prejudiced against him. Pip would just pity me. I can’t talk to Wren. You’re the only one who can be objective. You’ll tell me if it’s nothing. You always have.”

    Summary

    Just for a moment, Oliver found himself wanting something else. A surprise; an unexpected turn that could twist the smooth, unflappable confidence that radiated from Richard—no, not confidence. He didn’t even know he did it. Richard was just that sure of his place.

    On the last night of their third year, Oliver finds himself drunk by the lake with Richard & Meredith.
