    Summary

    10 years after the end of The King's Men, Andrew and Neil have decided to foster a kid. They have low expectations for themselves--they're not exactly ideal parenting material--but at the very least, the kid will be safe with them. But neither Andrew nor Neil do temporary very well.

    Full disclosure: highly character-driven, minimally plot-driven.

    TW: If you suffer from paranoia, this is probably not the fic for you. Specifically, Neil has bunches of paranoia regarding being watched, and also being murdered. If you have questions/concerns or if you're a reader who has a better idea of how to word this/what other people would need to know, feel free to comment or message me on tumblr @yourficstheyglow.

    Summary

    "I need an answer for this, Andrew," he prods, "You don't have to write me an essay, just… tell me the basics. What do you like?"

    He sighs in defeat and tucks his socked feet under Neil's thigh. "When you… say things," he says slowly.

    Neil stares at him, "I need a little more to go on than that, love."

    Andrew flicks him on the arm, irritated, "I meant when you say nice things, asshole. Like when you tell me I'm… good."

    Summary

    Andrew wakes in the hospital, years after the last thing he remembers, with nothing but a handful of out of date promises and a wrecked car. He is purposeless, adrift, unable to find solid ground.

    Except in the blue, blue eyes of the scarred stranger at his bed side.

    Summary

    “How often do you need blood?”

    Neil wishes he’d stop saying it like that, like it’s an inevitability. It may be the truth, but that doesn’t make it any easier to deal with. “Every few months.”

    Andrew’s breath brushes warm over his face, and Neil makes the mistake of looking down at his lips as he speaks. “Oh,” he murmurs. “That’s interesting. See, I’ve been asking around, and I have it on fairly good authority that most vampires go feral after a few weeks without a blood source.”

    Neil’s jaw tightens, and with the press of Andrew’s fingers against him, he knows the Fae can feel it. Abruptly, Neil jerks his head out of Andrew’s grip, taking a step back. He needs to breathe, and isn’t capable of thinking rationally when Andrew’s that close. “Well,” he says, frustration bleeding into his tone, “good thing I’m not most vampires.”

    Summary

    Neil is a math nerd who, by a stroke of dumb luck, falls into a group of friends that are the closest thing to family he’s ever had. So, when he tells them about his new mysterious crush, he shouldn’t be surprised how immediately they come up with a plan to help win them over. One they insist that if Neil follows it, he’ll have them falling for him in no time. But things don’t always go to plan – or do they?

    Nicky wants to set him up with someone else. Matt and Jeremy are confused but supportive. Allison and Seth offer lewd suggestions, while Dan does her best to keep everyone in line. Jean and Renee know something, Aaron doesn’t really care, and Kevin just wants Neil to join the lacrosse team.

    But one thing’s for certain – whether Neil’s successful or not, everyone’s got money riding on this.
