    Summary

    Robert has caught himself wondering, lately, what it’d be like. In Marley’s arms. It’s different from what he feels for Neon or Indah, he tells himself. He doesn’t find himself constantly craving Marley’s warmth, not like with the two women. But it’s there, more subtle. Fizzing lightly in his stomach when he gazes at Marley’s solid form, his broad shoulders.

    Summary

    Adam has to pee, and that means Caleb does, too. The only problem is, he's too tired to get up.
    --
    This may become a dumping ground for a couple little oneshots featuring Bright Sessions characters because I got some hella fun ideas for ways to play with desperation. Empathy is fun y'all hehe.

    Anyway no betas we die like men, also read the tags in case something like this would trigger you.

    Summary

    Adam is a total fucking sucker.

    He’s always sort of known this about himself — after all, he goes weak in the knees every time Caleb so much as smiles at him and that stupid, smug empath even knows — but letting himself get talked into attending the football party is a new level of pathetic-head-over-heels first love crap that he swore he would never fall into.

    Adam Hayes does not belong at parties, especially when they’re to celebrate a sport. Caleb spent twenty minutes trying to explain what a first down was before giving up and calling him a lost cause. He’s glad that Caitlin is willing to sit with him at games, because apparently it’s his obligation as a good boyfriend to attend, but it’s been a few weeks now and he still has no freaking clue what’s going on.

    Furthermore, the football guys are… well. Caleb aside, Adam doesn’t exactly run in the same circles that they do. Adam is bookish, he’s nerdy, he’s emo and he’s more than a little gay.

    In his experience, football players aren’t exactly lining up to make his acquaintance unless it’s to throw him into a locker.

    --
    In which Adam goes to a football party, gets a shovel talk, and is happy.

    Summary

    Losing Adam was blue. Blue like Caleb had never known. More blue than any of Adam's deep oceans of emotion that he let Caleb close enough to feel. More murky than the blue of missing old friends or family. Tinged with the purple of regret, orange anxieties of what ifs, and slimy icky sludge of something Caleb still hadn't quite grasped.

    AKA: Alice makes Caleb listen to Taylor Swift and it reminds him of how much he misses Adam after they kind of break up. Very angsty but if I can write the whole thing it'll end up alright :) Takes place between seasons two and three.

    Summary

    It’s come to the point where Ryan can actually predict when Hayes is going to walk through the classroom door.

    Every morning, it happens like clockwork - Michaels will be practically falling asleep on his desk, and then all of a sudden his demeanor will perk up like a golden retriever and - yep. There’s Hayes.

    It would be funny if it wasn’t so sickeningly cute.

    Summary

    Driving from coast to coast wasn’t something he’d planned. No, it was a crackpot idea that’d come to him after one too many sleepless nights. He’d needed something to clear his head, and driving aimlessly for as long as it took to feel better was maybe the least destructive one he’d had in the aftermath of all that had happened.
