    Summary

    Someone told Neil that Renee Walker was a good person to approach about free textbooks.

    But Renee told Neil that she left the box of her old textbooks at her friend Andrew’s house, and Andrew told Neil he wouldn’t give him the box until he brought him a piece of Matt’s homemade pie, and Matt won’t give Neil a slice until he convinces Dan to go on a date with Matt, and Dan won’t go on a date with Matt until Allison gives back her lucky scrunchie…

    Neil just wanted some free books.

    Summary

    Neil Josten starts a new high school and has to take an extra-curricular activity. Panicked, he chooses to work with Kevin Day on Exycast - a podcast for Exy fans.

    It's just unfortunate that the two of them have to share their club room with a trio of cousins who run a creative writing zine called Monstrrr and are extremely loud and annoying.

    Summary

    “I’m not dating anyone,” Neil says. “Andrew and I are just friends.”

    “Friends that hold hands and go on dates and make lovey dovey faces at each other in public?” Allison deadpans.

    "We're not dating," he insists again. He feels himself deflate in Allison’s embrace and her eyes fall at his expression.

    “Trust me,” Neil says quieter. “Because you have no idea how badly I wish we were.”

    Or, an extremely ooc andreil high school au! ft. a lot of pining, absolutely no mentions of trauma, and two very oblivious idiots.

    Summary

    They found it in the locked room of a Royal Navy's vessel, The Fox waiting to take her crew and their new spoils across the deep blue.

    It was beautiful. It was rarer than any diamond.

    “A mermaid,” Dan laughed, taking a step back and sweeping her hat off her head to hold to her chest. “They were transporting a mermaid.”

    It was going to make them rich.

    ( wherein the Foxes are pirates, Neil has gills, and no one quite trusts the magic. )

    Summary

    The one where Andrew makes a perfectly reasonable request and Neil takes it too far like the dumbass he is. Or, relationships are complicated and communication is hard. They don't always nail it.

    So, Andrew has hit his limit. Neil’s charged silence next to him is so loud that Andrew can’t read over the buzz of it in his ears.

    “Get out,” he says, turning to glare at Neil.

    Neil blinks at him.

    “Whatever stupid thing you’re obsessing over. It’s irritating. I don’t have time to solve your problems for you. Handle it. I have to study.”

    Instantly, he realizes it was a mistake. He watches Neil’s face and body shutter up, closing tight like he’s locking down for a hurricane. It took so fucking long to get Neil to open up in the first place. Andrew had to peel him open one truth at a time. Fuck.
