    Summary

    James left many years ago, leaving behind only a note to his friends and one to his love. He hoped they’d never figure him out. Now, on an island off the coast of British Columbia, Oliver finds him, hiding from his ghosts. Can they reconnect? Or is the past too hard to reconcile with the present staring him right in the face?
    Reposted to finalize as a complete work.

    Summary

    I feel myself slipping as soon as he parts his lips. It's rather embarrassing, being so shamelessly enamored, by him, by everything he does. But still, as James stands before us, arm outstretched, reaching for something he can't quite grasp, face bent with such emotion, words flowing from his mouth like water from a faucet, smooth, soft, cool, I don’t think my eyes could be anywhere else.

    Summary

    “Oliver, where are we even going?” he started, making his way toward me with one small step at a time. I furrowed my eyebrows.
    “We’re just going?”

    Or; James and Oliver get the fuck out, go on a roadtrip, and get the happy ending they deserve.

    Summary

    This Oliver, the one in front of him, was different. He’d found him, against all odds. He wanted him, after everything. He loved him, more than anything.

    Summary

    "I twist the letter in my hands, read it for the hundredth time, as if I don't already know Pericles's words by heart. But it's James's calligraphy, the ink spilt by his pen, the letters traced by his hands, and what this verses might mean. If my suspects are right, and this whole trip isn't just wishful thinking, it means that James is alive. That I'll see his face after four years, and I'll be able to ask him why, and tell him everything."
     

    Yes, it's one of those fics.

    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.)
