    Summary

    Connor would like to believe he didn't mean it.

    One minute, he was just driving, numbly listening to whatever shit played on the radio these days when he saw it.

    A tree. An insignificant tree just outside Ellison State Park.

    Summary

    Connor is storming away again, clutching Evan’s letter in his fist and Evan tries to yell after him and plead for it back, but Connor seems like he’s on a mission. And, thankfully, he didn’t hit Evan, so Evan doesn’t feel like he needs to chase after Connor, but then again: he has Evan’s letter. And that letter is more personal than it usually would be and now Connor Murphy has it and it directly talks about Zoe Murphy and if Connor is as bad as everyone says he is, it will be plastered all over social media tomorrow, if not printed out and hung in the hallways for everyone to see and laugh at.

    Evan makes a decision.

    He chases after Connor.

    +++

    or the one where Evan explains himself to Connor and they become friends.

    Summary

    A late-night phone conversation. An eavesdropping father.

    “OK, yeah. It’s late. I can pick you up on the way to school tomorrow if you want? Yeah, OK…Love you too, Ev.”

    Larry heads to bed, mentally churning through every “Ev” name he knows – Evelyn? Eva? Evangeline?

    Cynthia rolls over as he climbs into bed, and slurs out a sleepy “It’s late.”

    “Ev,” says Larry. “Ev, who’s Ev?”

    (Or: Connor's in love. Larry's clueless. But trying.)

    Summary

    Platonic soulmate AU!

    If you would have asked Connor a year ago, he would have said that soulmates just made everything worse. After all, his own soulmate was a dick, to everyone and anyone but especially to him. That, plus the fact that he had had a massive unrequited crush going back years on the boy soul-bonded to his younger sister….Well it would be enough to give anyone pause.

    Summary

    (he keeps on growing and slipping through my fingers, all the time)

    ~

    He suddenly laughs a bit, smiling. Larry hasn't seen Connor laugh in probably years. “God, you're so drunk.” He says, and pokes Zoe’s shoulder. She swats at him.

    “Connor.” She says, and her tone is serious. “Are you okay?”

    “No. But neither are you right now.” Connor’s mood refuses to sober. “Come on, let me walk you to your room.”

    Summary

    "Are people born wicked? Or do they have wickedness thrust upon them?"

    --

    Connor wasn't always angry. There used to be a time when he was just a little kid who loved playing dress up with Zoe, watching Star Wars with Larry, and baking with Cynthia.

    He was just a hurting boy who got lost along the way...

    Summary

    "And how, may I ask, did you sustain such an injury, at a public library, at one in the morning?"

    Connor looks out the passenger window. He's more relaxed now. Larry's trying not to look at the blood gathering on his seat. "If you would believe it, a shelf fell on me."

     

     

    (Or, Connor definitely has super-healing, being Spiderman and all, but Larry's angry and taking him to the hospital, so it's not like he has much of a choice, is it?)

    Summary

    "You know...I think I like you, Hansen." And yet again, Evan was unprepared for what he was witnessing. "Here, give me your phone." As Connor extended his hand he reached for his phone, almost on autopilot, unlocking it and then handing it over. After a few minutes, the electronic device was back in his grip. He stares at the screen, unable to believe his eyes for the second time that night. There was a new contact which read "Connor".

    "Now we can both at least pretend we have a friend."

    Summary

    The Father’s Day after his dad had left, Evan had spent hours making a homemade card, saying how much he missed his dad and wished they could spend time together again soon. He got a quick phone call thank you and not much else. The next year he sent a store bought card, and got a voicemail message on his mom’s phone in return. By the time Evan turned ten, he stopped bothering to send cards. He sent emails instead. Short, one line emails with the subject: “Happy Father’s Day!” He didn’t get an email back the year he turned fourteen, so then he quit sending those.

    His dad wasn’t a bad guy. Hell, for Evan's siblings, he probably wasn’t even a bad dad. But he wasn’t great for Evan, and Evan had learned to accept that he never really would be. But.He still called.

    ---------

    Despite Connor's original plan - to give Zoe money and ask her to slap his name on whatever gift she had picked up for Larry - he had done something stupid. And that stupid thing was unearthing an old baseball glove that his dad had gotten him years and years and years ago. And wrapping it.

    Larry had always been clueless with Connor. But he was trying. If Connor was trying, then Larry might as well try too.

    Summary

    “You need to start thinking about college.”

    “I’m not going to college.”

    “You should be thinking about it, Connor, it’s the only way to get anywhere. I know it seems like a joke to you now, but when you’re twenty five and you can’t get a real job you’ll see I was right.”

    Connor said nothing. He took another drag on his cigarette. Blew the smoke out slowly. “I’m not going to college, dad.”

    Dad.

    When was the last time he heard that?

    For months now, maybe years, it had been nothing and if it was ever something it was “Larry” or “Fucking Larry.” Never dad.

    It wasn’t right hearing that.

    “You have to go.” That was all he could say back. His throat was choked up.

    “I’m not going to college, dad,” Connor tried again. In the dark, in the moonlight, the bags under his eyes were more pronounced. He looked like he was sagging under the weight of holding himself up. “I’m dead.”
