    Summary

    There was something to Nathaniel Wesninski, something sweet and savory - something good, something that had managed to survive the circumstances that he had been born into. Most people wanted to ignore it, acted like it was never there in fear of being sucked in by it- while those who didn't, found themselves falling for the boy no matter how much they tried to resist it.
    Nathan and Mary would know - after all, they had been the first ones to fall for it.

    Or the story where Nathaniel is both the worst and the best thing that has ever happened to Nathan and Mary- where Jean and Kevin escape while Nathaniel is left behind- where the first time that he ever acts selfish is when he chooses to join the foxes, when he leaves behind Nathaniel and chooses to live rather than to just survive...

    Summary

    Neil Josten sighed as he looked at the black sky. His cigarette burned down to the filter as he took one drag out of it after letting it burn. He didn't want the nicotine, only the familier ache in his heart that came with the smell. The ghost of death and unfairness creeps up on him.

    Aka the one where Neil is a baddass but also kind of tired and just done with life and people. And Kevin's shit.

    The Moriyama's are dicks who Neil isn't afraid of and he killed his father before he went to Millport.

    I suck at summaries lol

    A lot of it is taken from canon, all unchanged content credit goes to Nora Sakavic

    Summary

    “You were amazing”
    He knows he spoke those words. It sounds like his voice. He thinks he is talking to someone special, but how could they be? He only knows a handful of people and would remember speaking to them.

    His Dad, maybe? For rescuing him from his Mum, when she kidnapped him—no, he remembers every conversation he has had with his Father. His mind is getting hazy now, a severe migraine brought on by thinking about this. He pushes it to the back of his mind: whoever it was—they couldn’t have been that amazing if he could entirely forget them.

     

    ---------
    After the final with the Ravens, Neil is taken to the basement of his Father Bosten's estate. For all the screaming and pleading to let him live fell on deaf ears, it became apparent they would let him live. And suddenly that seems so much worse than dying.

    Only one thing matters: will Neil allow himself to live under someone else's boot?

    Summary

    “Andrew, Andrew.” Neil whispered in his ear, the warm air against his skin making him shiver. “It's time for our nebula.”

    ...

    Neil then asked what a nebula was and he replied: Nebulae were nurseries for stars.
    Birth of stars.
    Birth…

    Summary

    Eight years after the world found out about Nathaniel Wesninski, he disappeared from it, leaving no traces behind. Some said he couldn't be found, some said he died. But what remained in the ashes was Neil Josten. Or as the world knew him, Nicholas John.

    Eight years ago, Andrew Minyard felt the pang of loneliness for the first time in his left when the only boy that made him feel left him. He moved on, or at least tried to. If only he could know how to forget him. So he moved on, and Alan James Martin was born.

    Nicholas John is an artist, known for his colorful illustrations and artistic sketches. Alan James Martin is a famed crime thriller author. He is also a father to his seven year old. When a meeting is scheduled for professional work, neither know that they're about to uncover the ghosts of their past. When Neil discovers what Andrew's life has become, he can't help but think about the life he's missed out on. When Andrew discovers that Neil is back, alive and well, he realises that some feelings were not quite gone. Griffin just wants Andrew to be happy.

    Some things rarely fall into place easily, especially when it's the cracked pieces of your heart.

    Summary

    Oasis
    (n.) a pleasant or peaceful area or period in the midst of a difficult or hectic place or situation.
    (synonym.) sanctuary.

    Neil was 4 years old, when his mother killed his father in front of his, he was 4 when she dropped him off at a 'friend' of hers to protect him. His life became a mess after that, going from one foster home to another one, none of them wanting him for along period of time. Andrew was 6 years old, when everything started to become fake to him. He would have been 8 when he gave up on himself, if he hadn't met the small red-head.
    One was 6, the other 7 when they met- it still didn't stop them from becoming each other's oasis. (Or fate brings Andrew and Neil together much earlier, and the two boys would do anything to protect each other.)

    Summary

    “You wanted me to carry the phone when I was in danger. I’m not anymore.”
    Andrew fixed him with a pointed gaze. “You’re a beacon for danger. Stand still long enough and you’ll be swarmed in hours. And without your phone, what will you do?”
    “I’ll figure it out.”
    “Clearly not. You were in danger today and instead of calling me, you ran.”
    Neil blinked, confused. “I wasn’t in danger, I-”
    Andrew pressed two fingers to Neil’s temple and pushed. “I’m not talking about physical danger. I’m talking about your psyche. You refuse to talk to Bee. If today was any indication, I’d say you cannot afford to continue going on without talking to her.”
    “I’m not talking to her,” Neil said resolutely.
    “Then we’re at an impasse. I will not waste my time worrying about a rabbit who will neither call me nor see a therapist for his problems.”


    Basically Neil and Andrew figure out how to help each other through the good and bad days.

    Summary

    "What if I prove otherwise?" Andrew said, but Neil kept walking. "what if I conquer you?”

    And then, the Duke stopped, Neil looked at him over his shoulder with a minimal pang of interest.

    " What are you getting at?”

    "Let me convince you that a date can prove nothing." He explained, that time Neil turned his body to face him. "The season ends in a month. Give me one month to win him over and change his mind. If I succeed, you will agree to the marriage. You'll pay the dowry, give the blessing, everything."

    Neil did not answer him for a minute that seemed too long. There was no strong agreement, but rather a raising of eyebrows, a less than ladderly look.

    "If you fail, you will leave my family alone." I said. "And your brother will no longer be able to talk to Katelyn.”

    "Fair enough." Andrew nodded. "But he has to be honest. You won't hide anything.”

    "I would never do such a thing. Although I didn't think I would ever need to.”

    "We'll see." And Neil subtly raised his eyebrows. "Do we have a deal?”

    "We have a deal."

    Summary

    Вільною рукою Ендрю витягнув телефон і ще раз переглянув повідомлення, яке надіслав йому Ніл.

    “Мені сьогодні важко говорити.”

    Не "Я не хочу говорити" або "Мені нічого сказати", а саме "Важко говорити".

    ***

    В один із поганих днів Ніл намагається нормалізувати свій психічний стан, і Ендрю міркує, як має поводитися поруч із ним. Проходячи через це разом, обидва хлопці усвідомлюють: спиратися один на одного - нормально; вони здатні як простягнути руку допомоги, так і втриматися на ногах. Крім того, будьмо до кінця чесними, Бетсі допомогла їм зрушити з місця.

    Summary

    “I have baggage.”

    “All my foxes have baggage. You won’t be the first.” Wymack said.

    Neil doubted any fox in all Wymack’s years has carried the same weight as Neil when it came to baggage.

    “That's not what I mean.”

    “Go on. Let’s hear it then.”

    The coach waited patiently for him to continue. It should have been comforting but Neil was far more scared than ever.

    “I have a son. His name’s Milo.”

    OR what if Neil had a kid when he was on the run?

    Self-indulgent fic I didn't expect anyone to care about but my sister pushed me to write it

    Summary

    An AU where Mary never got Nathaniel out. Instead, he became too invaluable of an asset to be killed off or 'gifted' to Tetsuji. Instead, he's raised with Ichirou and Jean as a part of Ichirou's inner circle.

    He'd always had a knack for languages and lying and all the 'messy stuff' came easily enough when your father is called the Butcher of Baltimore. So Nathaniel became the Wraith. He was untraceable, unknowable, infalliable; a criminal fairytale.

    When Kevin Day leaves the Nest, there's no better person to send.

    ~

    "Who the hell are you?" Andrew demanded.

    He wasn't anyone, not really; not anymore. He hadn't really been anyone in years now. There'd been a time. Once. But there were entire lifetimes between who he could have been and what he'd become. He could taste it sometimes; blackberries and sand stinging his tongue like the iron branded on his shoulder.

    It was easier to pretend he'd never been anyone at all.

    "I'm nothing," he answered. The ghost of a smile pulled at his lips; sharp and cruel. "A wraith." The Wraith, he didn't say, but the shadows ran through Andrew's eyes and he wondered if Andrew had heard it anyways.

    Summary

    The second time Andrew sits out of one game is because he has a resentment in his left hand. And since that game was not a particularly exciting one, and because Neil was practically about to tear Kevin’s head off arguing how he was not risking causing Andrew any more pain, Wymack decided it would not be too big of a problem letting Andrew sit out.

    Or
    Andrew finally gets to watch a match from the sides and realises Exy can be a dangerous sport

    Andrew is all worried and smitten
