    Summary

    The foxes often like to think that between Andrew and Neil, Andrew is the one that everyone should fear. They like to think that Andrew is the one with all the power, that he’s going to be the one who eventually hurts Neil. They believe that Neil is the soft one, with his sweaters that have sleeves that go past his fingers, his fluffy auburn hair, and his ocean blue eyes.

    (Or Andrew Minyard is actually the soft one and here are three different examples to prove it)

    Summary

    “I thought good Catholic boys waited till marriage,” Adam had said, once, under the soft, light blanket that covered them both where they lay on Ronan’s bed.

    “Good Catholic boys don’t bring birds back from their dreams,” Ronan had replied.

    Summary

    Neil Josten had never imagined getting married. He’d never been allowed to. He was meant to keep himself disconnected and alone, only in the company of his mother. He couldn’t let himself be distracted by the girl he kissed in eighth grade, sticky with lipgloss, let alone marriage. His mother had told him, endlessly, that love was nothing. It was worthless. Attraction was weakness, love was pain.

    Neil Josten had never imagined getting married, not until he met Andrew Minyard.

    or, 5 times Neil thinks about marriage, and 1 time he gets married.

    Summary

    Andrew had grown sick of the colour orange.

    He has to deal with it enough being at a college that’s entire premise seems to rely on the retina-burning hue, his only apparent escape from it being when he’s able to get away to Columbia on the weekends.

    But now it’s fall, and the leaves are turning all kinds of shades of orange, none quite as ghastly and bright as back at Palmetto State, but orange nonetheless.

    The only instance in which Andrew isn’t sick of orange, not that he’d admit it to anyone, is when it comes to Neil.
