    Summary

    The most shocking thing about the sight of Neil is how still he is.

    Andrew has seen Neil bloodied and bruised before. But even beaten to a pulp and beyond exhausted, Neil talks and twitches and kicks in his sleep, restless fucker.

    Now, Neil’s only signs of life are the shallow rise and fall of his chest and the steady beep of the heart monitor beside his bed. That’s all Andrew has to hold onto as he drags a chair from beside the window to the gap between Neil’s bed and the door and sits down.

    Andrew breaks into Neil's hospital room after Baltimore. (Inspired by this artwork by @himawarrior)

    Summary

    I mean, what else could Nicky have done when he spotted Andrew smiling at the hot guy making his coffee?

    Not meddle?

    Not get all the Foxes on board?

    It's like you don't even know him.

    Summary

    AKA the Lavender AU.

    Andrew and Neil don't meet in Millport, they find each other ten years later in the South of France, near the crumbling walls of Chateauneuf de Grasse, just before the hills begin to bloom with lavender.

    This is a story about memory and loss, love and healing, and how even a flower that has been stepped on can grow back in time.

    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.
