The boys talk about their past
Aaron presses up close to him, one arm snaking around his shoulders and he presses his fingertips into the short hairs at the base of his skull. It’s something he does when Robert’s stressed, upset, angry, and he hopes it’s soothing, especially when he starts tracing tiny, soft patterns. “I – I know that,” He whispers, nudging his nose against Robert’s temple. “But you don’t tell me anything. I want you to talk to me about this stuff.”
“I was so scared,” Robert murmurs, and he lets out a deep breath. He sounds it, even now, like his world is going to come crashing down around him, and Aaron feels it hit home, in his heart, like a kick to the ribs. Like, he knows that Robert has feelings, but he never thought about how he was feeling, because Robert was made up of nothing but pure confidence and cocky smirks back then. “I couldn’t lose everything, everything that made people proud of me. But you – you were there and you weren’t mine but I wanted you to be. I wanted you to be mine but I couldn’t be yours.”
He has extra keys these days; he’s got his own car and apartment keys, the keys to the house in Columbia and keys to the court where he now trains, but he also has a key to Neil’s suite at Fox Tower, and when Neil leaves and gets a place of his own, Andrew will swap it for a key to there, too.
The key fixation has always been Neil’s thing, but Andrew can still appreciate what they mean. He’s welcome and he’s wanted. He doesn’t have to knock.
- Part 18 of To live will be an awfully big adventure
Stiles stared at Derek, panting on the ground with blood pooling around him, face scrunched up in pained grimace. He stared at Derek and thought about all the times Scott had ignored him or dismissed him when he needed his help, when his life was on the line. He thought about all the times Derek had gone out of his way to save him, even if it meant risking himself instead.
“Fuck that,” he said.
And then he was running.

Felix Fraldarius felt fragile in her arms. He looked fragile. Annette would give anything to make this moment last forever.
Alternate summary: Felix didn't mean to make it his damn job to take care of the falling apart "Boar Prince", but it seemed to fall to him anyways. But then Ashe wants to help, and then Annette is there, looking pissed at him, and from there, it all falls apart.
