    Summary

    Neil's poor luck over the last couple of years has reached a breaking point with the mother of his child - she's threatening to move his daughter across the country. Between the three jobs, he still isn't making enough to get custody or move with her. Is he desperate enough to effectively sign his soul away to corporate lawyer/monster?

    Summary

    I was listening to the song this is titled after by Taylor Swift and had this idea and I had to write it out.
    Essentially this is meant to juxtapose sex and rape and in particular how this difference is highlighted in Andrew. Though there are a few people picking up on this trait I still feel that, moral ambiguity and judgement over some of his actions aside, Andrew doesn’t get enough credit for that mental strength and presence of mind. Someone so traumatized breaking the stereotype of ‘dangerous bad boy scoffing at the thought of therapy’ is really refreshing and inspiring. I really don’t think he knows why he's working to get better but he is and he’s really doing it on his own. Which, even if I don’t personally identify with all of his trauma, I can really relate to. Finding a character striving to live and feel for no reason other than his own will to do so is incredible and I’d like to take a moment to thank our patron saint Sakavic for writing him into the world.

    Summary

    The sun was bearing down on the park, on Andrew, on Neil Josten’s sketch, his auburn hair and blue, blue, blue eyes.

    After a dozen tries, Andrew clicked through his photos. All the way to the first one. The one where Neil was staring straight at the camera.

    Andrew’s breath caught.
