    Summary

    What if the threat of Aaron being charged with murder was more significant and Neil found out that he could prevent Andrew from having to be at the trial if he were to testify. What would he be willing to sacrifice to achieve that?

    What if instead of refusing to testify for Aaron, Neil decides to make a deal with the FBI to become their witness against his father if they’ll backstop his current identity. He thinks it means signing his death warrant and losing the Foxes. Betsy, Aaron and the Foxes are determined to convince him it doesn’t have to be all or nothing, his father’s people are coming for him and that’s not even starting on what Andrew will have to say about Neil choosing to martyr himself.

    Ft. Unlikely bonding between Aaron & Neil and the therapy Neil needs but wouldn’t ever ask for on his own behalf. This story is set after Drake’s death but contains discussions of his actions as part of Neil’s testimony that Aaron’s actions were justified.

    Summary

    His stomach sank, a heavy weight settled, twisting his insides even more. His breathing had been labored before, but his lungs seemed frozen now. He didn’t understand. This couldn’t be happening. The Foxes were staring at the scoreboard expecting it to change. A chill settled around Neil, and he really couldn’t breathe.
    .
    Basically, what if the Foxes lost the finals?
    This is so self indulgent, I just love putting myself through pain via these characters.

    Summary

    Contrary to popular belief, Neil wasn’t stupid.

    Tired, yes. Bleeding, slightly. But he wasn’t stupid.

    He didn’t even let Hernandez pull him aside in Millport- the minute he heard someone was waiting for him he was gone. A flimsy excuse about grabbing something from his hallway locker (which he never even opened) and he hadn’t looked back.

    Neil grabbed his duffel in front of him, leaving bloody handprints that wouldn’t be seen on the black fabric, as he zipped it closed.

    As if this couldn’t get any worse, a third person stuck their head in the doorway, like some horrible clown car that wanted Neil dead.

    “What is the deal? We have a deadline guys.”

    They made eye contact, and Neil felt his soul leave his body.

    “Is that- fucking Josten?”

     

    (Or alternatively, Neil runs in Milport and has the worst possible luck one could imagine.)

    Summary

    “Are you making friends, Abram?” Mary asked, a nervous tint to her voice.

    Neil thought about the day he finally took out his colored contacts when Nicky asked and the way Andrew had gripped the back of his neck, hissing, “Another bit of unexpected honesty.”

    He wondered when he’d started letting his guard down and things slip.

    “Yeah, Mom,” he answered.

    ~*~

    The start of Neil's journey navigating through the Foxes, Ravens and family relations.

    Summary

    A hurricane traveling up the coast from Florida is set to touch down in Palmetto, a problem no one predicted would incur anything other than storm damages. But hurricanes fuck with barometric pressure, which fucks with scar tissue. And Neil has a lot of that, so when he wakes up in excruciating pain convinced that the past seven months after Baltimore weren’t real, he does the one thing he’d promised not to do anymore.

    He runs.

    Andrew isn’t far behind of course, but Neil is firm in his belief that he never left the car with Lola. There’s also a flash flood advisory to worry about, and he very much tore out of Fox Tower in nothing but a t-shirt and boxer shorts during a literal tropical storm.

    or

    Neil has a dissociative episode that sends him running and Andrew does a lot of feeling over it.

    Summary

    An unsettling weight sinks into Andrew's stomach at the sight, and he just barely stops himself from reaching out. "Neil," he whispers into the quiet of their bedroom, "What's going on? What's wrong?"

    Neil immediately freezes, his shoulders hunching up near his ears. His body stills, like he's waiting out a hunting predator, waiting for the monster to lose his scent and move on. Andrew glances at the floor and spots an open duffle bag, already half-packed with Neil's clothes. 

    Suddenly, he feels very ill. Neil is running. Neil is leaving.

    Summary

    It hadn't meant to be a problem at first, it was never supposed to become a problem. Neil had just forgotten to eat one day, too busy with school and training to notice. And when he finally did notice, that sharp pang of hunger made him feel something, he wasn’t sure what it made him feel, but he felt something, and any feeling was better than the numbness Neil had become so accustomed to.

     

    after the raven king, Neil starts to suffer from an eating disorder.

    It's him; it's his father. The video is grainy, the sound fizzes with bad quality. But it's there, and it's clear enough to discern what's happening.

    Summary

    The story is over. Ronan and his friends won. They killed the demon, they saved Gansey, their fight should be done. Things should be easier from here. So why is Ronan still restless? Still unsatisfied? Why is Adam still trapped and why does he not let anyone help him? Why is Bblue threatening to fall apart under a burden that no one else seems to notice?
    Things aren't okay and Ronan doesn't know how to fix them. Might as well try a change of scenery. Right? Wrong. Joining the Palmetto Foxes turns out to bring more problems than solutions. At least they are used to everything going to shit by now.
