    Summary

    What do you do when you’re the school president, and you get half a dozen confessions a day that you really don’t want?

    Even better, what do you do when your acquaintance/friend/slight-pain-in-your-ass is treated like a complete outcast by the entire student body, and you know that he doesn’t deserve it?

    That’s right! You fake-date him!

    ...Wait.


    In which School President Dream meets Local Menace George, discovers he isn’t what everyone says he is, laments over his troubles, and gets hit with the w̶o̶r̶s̶t̶ best idea of the 21st century: pretending to date.

    It’s a way to deter all of Dream’s suitors so he can have peace of mind; it’s a way to show everyone that George isn’t as big and bad as they think; it’s the perfect solution to their problems.

    And between the two of them, the probability of any real feelings developing is almost zero.

    Almost.

    Summary

    George has never been adept at making friends. He’s quiet, and he’s well spoken, and the traits that made him every parent’s favourite back in London only served to make him the freak of America. And yet the boy next door, with the golden hair and the charming smile, didn’t seem to care. In fact, he seemed to love how different George was.

    Time changes things though, George supposes. The people that once made him feel at home have long since moved on, even if he hasn’t.

    or, george finally comes home for the holidays and dream is still the best person he ever met

    Summary

    George sleeps too much. He sleeps over fourteen hours and then some, preferring his dreams over reality.

    Dream does not sleep, with his nightmares haunting him every night. He stays up as long as he can - sometimes for days on end till he's passing out in class or nearly crashing into another car while driving.

    -
    where George is the new foreign exchange student, depressed, gay, and living under the roof of an abusive Catholic aunt, and Dream is the fake-smiling, hot shot basketball player, in the closet, bored, and looking for adventure.

    *inspired by the song "Meet Me at Our Spot" by The Anxiety, Tyler Cole, and Willow

    this story has poetic elements and includes some very serious themes so be mindful of the tags!
    *the abuse that occurs does NOT happen between George and Dream; it happens with George and his family
    * Each chapter has trigger warnings

    Summary

    “I hardly know you,” He says.

    Dream nods, “You’re right.”

    George lets out a shaky breath. He can smell the weight of Dream’s cologne, citrus, warm, and it makes him dizzy. “You hardly know me.”

    The process of falling in love is never simple. George learns as he grows, and as he breaks away.
