    Summary

    Jean has chosen the café whose tables were closest to the large windows overlooking the tarmac. After spending so many years underground and under the harsh fluorescent light of the Nest, he doesn't think he will ever have enough of the natural warmth of the sun.

    A duffle bag of clothes that are too new to feel like his, the tin of home-baked cookies Renee thrusted into his hands before he left, and a small package wrapped in kraft paper are his only baggage.

    He's waiting for a plane from London to land because of a phone call he received a few nights before. He is therefore purposefully two hours too early for the flight that will take him to South California, to meet the team in crimson and gold that will become his family, even if he doesn't know it yet.

    Summary

    Neil is finally out of the Nest and he only could think of one place where he wants to be.
    When Coach called to say there was a Raven bleeding out on court, the last person Andrew was expecting to see was Abram.
    It seems like Kevin's two worlds are colliding. It may be a good thing after all.
    -
    Or, Neil was once separated from Andrew. Then he was separated from Kevin. How could he expect to be reunited not with one but both of them, at once? It's more possible than he thinks.

    Summary

    It's been years since he saw the boy at the park. One day he was there and the next he was gone. But Andrew recognizes him nevertheless. Bright auburn hair and chilling blue eyes, fire and ice. Only now he's wearing a black jersey and he's glued to Riko's side.

    or

    Andrew and Neil meet as kids, but before the foxes find Neil Josten, the Ravens do.

    Summary

    When Nathaniel was a boy, his father died of unknown causes. He couldn’t have been more relived to hear the news, but that was until he learned of his fathers debt. Nathan Wesninski owed the Moriyama’s more money than Nathaniel could ever afford, so the only thing he was able to do was sell his body and soul.

    Years later, he’d become a Raven and Riko’s plaything. He could only trust himself with Jean. Together they suffered a fate worse than death. But when Nathaniel goes to his first banquet with the Ravens, he meets a short, blond haired man. Andrew Minyard might just know how to ruffle Riko’s feathers.

    Summary

    “Everyone at the Nest had their toxic distraction. Kevin’s was alcohol. Jean’s was the pills. Riko—well, I think Riko just got off by beating everyone.”

    Andrew hums and exhales. The smoke curls around the two of them. “What’s yours?”

    Nathaniel blinks. “My what?”

    “Your toxic distraction.”

    A wicked grin cuts across Nathaniel’s face. He doesn’t try to hide it. He wants Andrew to see. “Now or then?”

    Andrew raises an eyebrow, but that is the only noticeable change in his expression. “Can’t be an addict if you’re inconsistent.”

    “Not an addict. A junkie.”

    *****

    Nathaniel Wesninski was dragged back. Left with a pile of debt to pay off if he wants to live, Nathaniel has no choice but to embrace the life he tried to run from, including the implications that come with it—which he soon learns are far greater than he imagined.

    When something goes wrong amongst the Moriyamas, Nathaniel finds himself in Palmetto with an order to bring Kevin Day back to the Nest. Too bad he’s never been much of a rule-follower.

    Summary

    The day Jean Moreau walked onto the court with a ‘4’ on his cheek side by side with Kevin Day’s ’2’ and Riko Moriyama’s ‘1,’ everyone had the same question: where was number three? And more importantly, who were they?

    where Nathaniel Wesninski never ran away and became exactly what he was meant to be, a boy marked by death in the shape of the number three.

    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.
    Title taken from Anathema by twenty one pilots

    Summary

    It was a twisted sort of Parent Trap. Nathan paid his loyalties to the Moriyamas with one twin, while Mary escaped with the other. Noah Ezra Hatford has lived his life since he was age ten as half of a whole. "Nathaniel's dead" his mother whispered harshly as she pulled him onto the plane away from Baltimore, away from his nightmares. Of course, not everything in Baltimore had been a nightmare, because there had also been Nathaniel. Nathaniel who had been willing to take their father's punishments so Noah wouldn't have to, who would make up stories as they laid side by side in bed, whose smile would make any similarities to their father's face fade. But now, when Nathaniel's face is plastered across the Exy magazines, Noah has never been more aware of what his relative freedom has truly cost. His brother's eyes glint with a barely contained bitterness, but he's alive and now Noah will do just about anything to get his brother back.

    Alternating perspectives and timelines. So many OCs (Ravens, Hatfords and Vixens). Conversations on names and their connection to identity. Melodramatic and self-indulgent as hell. Andriel endgame but no interaction between them at all until chapter 6 so felt wrong to tag them.

    Summary

    When Kevin wins and Riko destroys his hand, Nathaniel's the one who gets him away. Nathaniel's also the one who gets left behind.
    Raven!Neil AU.

    “I — I can’t leave.” Nathaniel can see the panic building in Kevin's eyes, the realization, the fear. “Nathaniel I can’t, you know I can’t, he will kill me—“

    “Hasn’t he done it already?” Nathaniel’s voice is ragged, broken, all of the anger but none of it for Kevin, all of it is because it’s fucked. It’s fucked beyond repair and it is perfect.

    Kevin is going to get out.

    Summary

    Natalie Shields's life was bad enough that she joined Detroit's Bloodhound gang in a desperate attempt at survival. She endured its brutal initiation and its harsh rules with a strength that belied her young age. However, when strangers from out east showed up one day to punish the Hounds' leader, she believed that her time was finally up and wasn't concerned with the fact.

    It turned out that she was wrong. It turned out that one of the strangers thought it would fun to drag her back to Baltimore as a way to torment the wife of the Butcher of Baltimore.

    Nathaniel Wesninski ends up with a foster sister to teach him a lesson - that he's responsible for the actions of others. He's used to his father finding excuses to punish him so he accepts Natalie, pleased to have someone to play Exy with and who doesn't hurt him, someone who turns into a sister for real. Someone who stays by his side as they enter the Nest and become assets to the Moriyamas.
