    Summary

    Lucifer was an angel once.

    That’s what Nursey thinks, the first time he sees William Poindexter.

    Because the boy is beautiful even though he shouldn’t be. Even though he’s doubtless the kind of person who would punch you in the face if you said the words “you” and “beautiful” to him in the same sentence.

    His skin is choked with freckles. It’s potentially more freckle than skin. Not just his face, where his nose and cheekbones are so hyper-pigmented they look tanned, but his collarbones and forearms and knuckles. The close-shaved dark ginger stubble of his hair should make his ears look too big or his mouth too wide but instead it accentuates the long curve of his throat, the cup of velvet skin between the tendons in the back of his neck.

    “You’re the new defenseman?” Nursey asks. “William Poindexter?”

    And the boy turns around and considers him with what might be contempt but what might just be the way his face looks and says, “Yeah?” like its a challenge.

    And Nursey thinks:

    Oh no.

    Summary

    “So um, Niall mentioned you haven’t lived here long. What brings you to London?”

    “What is this, an interview?” Louis smirks, stealing Harry’s drink and taking a sip. “Wanted a change of scenery. Dunno.”

     Harry hums and takes his drink back, narrowing his eyes playfully at Louis as he takes a long sip. “Can I buy you a drink, or would you rather keep sharing mine?”

     “You most certainly can buy me a drink,” Louis grins, grabbing the bottle back out of Harry’s hand, “but I’m still going to be stealing yours.”

     
    Or, Harry is jaded and sad and resigned to be forever alone, until Niall sets him up with a friend of his whose broken pieces may just fit pretty well with Harry's.

    Summary

    Louis had such big plans. He wanted so much out of life, and so did Amy. Now Bridget is going to grow up without a mother, and she’s always going to wonder what it would be like if this hadn’t happened. He wonders if she’ll blame him for her mother’s death as she gets older, or if she’ll understand that this is just as painful for Louis as it is for her. Louis doesn’t know how he’s going to raise her on his own, because he’s a fantastic father, yes, but he’s always been the fun parent, and Amy was in charge of the rules. He doesn’t know how to make sure Bridget has everything she needs all the time, doesn’t know how to make her favorite meal or how to do that one braid she loves to have in her hair or how to teach her to be the best person she can be. He doesn’t know how to live without Amy, he doesn’t know what he’s going to do.

     

     

     

    Or, Louis has to pick up the pieces of his and his daughter's life after his wife dies, and Harry is a beautiful stranger that just wants to help.

    Summary

    As Tony nestles up to his borrowed pillow on surprisingly nice sheets, two thoughts occur to him. He’d do anything for this strange man that exudes magic from his pores, who took home a stranger from a club just because he needed a place to stay. And secondly, he super duper can’t sleep with Gob now. Sleeping with a temporary roommate is a bad idea.

    But it’s no big deal. He’ll find a place soon, and this crush will fade quickly.

    Right?

    Summary

    It’s not like Gob starts looking for the new kid or anything.

    He just keeps popping up, then disappearing before Gob can say... something. He’s not sure yet what it is he wants to say. 'Hi, I’m very popular and you should know that?' 'Hi, thanks for helping me with that fire, but I had it totally under control, I’m very popular?' 'Hi, like me like me please like me?'

    There’s no sign of him though, no sign of jet black hair and eyes that Gob remembers surprisingly well.

    (It's a high school au, featuring dumb magicians in love and all their usual nonsense!)
