    Summary

    Neil hears how Andrew starts pronouncing first stringy "n", he expects other's lips to curl into a mocking grin and drawl in a very familiar voice: "Ne-e-eil." But nothing like that happens. Minyard's lips actually curl into a wry smile, and he says so hateful, but usual:
    "Nathaniel Wesninski."

    or an AU where Neil is one of the Ravens and Andrew becomes his salvation.

    Summary

    The world was a cruel, twisted thing but there were always three truths. The sun would always return, he was Abram (son of the wicked and son of the would-be righteous), and death would always be there to welcome him when he was tired of being a pain in the ass.
    Death would not come to him now; he was having too much fun. Every time Riko and his knives tried to break him, Nathaniel became sharper. Soon he would break Riko.

     

    AFTG Re-Telling beginning with Mary and Nathaniel being caught by The Butcher of Baltimore and Nathaniel taking his place in the Ravens lineup.

    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

    “I was catching my breath
    staring out an open window
    catching my death
    and I couldn’t be sure
    I had a feeling so peculiar
    that this pain would be for
    evermore.”

    Neil is found by Ichirou before his mother dies; he is dragged to the Nest and forced to play for the best team in the country. Andrew was also recruited to the Ravens after finally striking a deal with Kevin.
    A twist on the story of how the Foxes came to be.

    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

    Nathaniel has only ever known violence. The worst of which directly from his own father. Nathaniel is told he only has worth as an asset to the Moriyamas meaning his survival lies within his compliance. However, Nathaniel’s temper can only be suppressed for so long.
    ~~~~
    Excerpt:
    Nathaniel Abram Wesninski should have never been born. His father, Nathan, was a cruel man involved in an illegal business of sorts who wielded a sharp smile and an even sharper blade. His mother, Mary, was an icy woman who tried her best to shield her son from his father's rage, but oftentimes she was the one who ended up giving him faint bruises in an effort to keep him quiet and unnoticed. From the moment he was born, his life was destined to be one of suffering and pain.

    Summary

    Over his thankless years in the nest, a sadistic place born of pride and desperate power, Nathaniel lost respect for people who called themselves kings, who thought themselves gods. Why? Because here, underground in the dark, where blood stained and bruises were not few and far between, God was dead, and Kings were liars. In truth everyone bled, only the rare broken ones could smile while doing so.

    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

    What if Mary was just a little too late in rescuing Nathaniel and running away? What if Mary got caught and Nathaniel had to pay the price? What if Nathaniel did pass his audition at Evermore and became one of the ravens? Number 3 at Riko's perfect court?

    This is the story of what would happen when Neil was a Raven before he was a Fox.
