    Summary

    “Do you think King and Sir don’t want me to go?” he asked, accepting the pants Andrew was passing over and throwing them in his suitcase.

    “Maybe,” Andrew said, pushing Neil away from the suitcase so he could fold the clothes inside rather than leave them in bundled up messes. “Or you need to keep a better track of your things.”

    “But I do!” Neil argued, throwing his hands in the air. “I always do! I know exactly where my stuff is all the time, but it keeps getting moved.”

    Andrew raised one eyebrow. “Or you think you know where everything is.”

    “Or I’m going crazy,” Neil whispered, staring at the ground. “Do you think they’ll make me stop playing exy if I’m crazy?”

    ~*~

    Or, every time Neil needs to leave for a game, his things mysteriously disappear from his suitcase. He's determined to figure out just who keeps taking them.

    Summary

    Andrew Minyard doesn’t believe soulmates exist.

    Or rather, he doesn’t believe his soulmate exists. The vibrant stripe of auburn tucked between the scars on his wrist like a secret is real enough, true. He’s stared at it enough times over the years to be certain of that.

    But the person it connects him to? Impossible. A hallucination. A pipe dream.

    Summary

    Mary was right, he discovered one day. He was meant to be studying. He wasn’t. He was watching Andrew consume an entire pint of ice cream while lazily critiquing Nicky’s video game techniques. People were distractions. Maybe Andrew was a good distraction, though. A way to stave off the panic and root himself in reality. Possibly even a way to stave off reality and root himself in a dream he thought would never see the light of day.

    --------------------------

    Neil has a panic attack during a run and finds comfort in Andrew--- they take a shower together because it's calming and they support each other the best they can

    Summary

    the music was grand, loud, almost ominous. it was mournful, with an elegiac quality to it, raising goosebumps on neil’s arms.

    andrew was not moving with the music, sitting straighter than neil had ever seen him sit, but his hands moved with hypnotic grace, moving fluidly from key to key like water cascading over rocks. as the music edged towards a crescendo cracks started to appear on the mask of apathy he wore: the furrow between his brows deepened, jaw clenching so hard it was evident even from across the room.

    it seemed like the rawest display of emotion he had ever seen from his partner, the delicate, careful skill completely unlike the blank, uncaring apathy he normally displayed.

    or,

    there is a pianoforte in the living room of the cottage andrew and neil rented for the summer, and andrew reveals a hidden talent. conversations ensue.

    Summary

    Even though Neil doesn't mind that the swan he affectionately named Honker keeps returning to his cottage, he is growing a bit worried over Honker's reluctance to talk to him. So Neil decides if he wants to become friends, he's going to have to gain the swan's trust.

    On the flip side, Andrew isn't sure why he keeps returning to Neil's cottage. The witch is distracting, makes good food, and is the only human he's come across since he's been cursed. And he also can't deny that Neil pushes all his buttons in the right way, and that's going to become a problem.

    ~*~

    Or, Andrew and Neil bond over the three months after the curse was casted.

    NOTE: There are eleven parts before this I'd recommend reading first to understand what's happening, but you don't have to read them to get what's going on.

    Summary

    “I was told to make you buy something or get rid of you.” Andrew says, not wasting time on a greeting.
    “Huh?” The boy asks.
    “I was told to make you buy something or get rid of you. You’re not allowed to just sit here and do nothing.
    “Oh.” The boy says, sounding disappointed.
    “Why would you even want to just sit here?” Andrew asks.
    “I like the atmosphere.” The boy says simply.
    “Yeah, if you like the alcoholism that you can practically smell of every adult and the sound of broken dreams coming from the children. Then the atmosphere is great.” Andrew says sarcastically.

    OR exactly what he title says
