    Summary

    “I need a favour.” Will said intensely to the group of people assembled before him.

    “Okay so last year my brothers were ragging me about going to a liberal arts college and just generally being dicks. Sibling stuff, and like, that was fine. But then Christopher was like ‘found yourself a boyfriend yet?’ like as a joke and I’d had it up to here with their shit and replied, ‘so what if I have?’ So now my family think I’m gay and expect me to bring a boyfriend to this big ole reunion. If I don’t bring one they’re just going to get worse.”

    His friends all blinked at him, surprise evident in each of their faces.

    “I’ll do it.” Nursey said slowly

    Summary

    Coach slams his fist against his desk and Will flinches, prepared for the anger, but not at all prepared for the concern in the man's eyes when he looks down at him.
    "I want to help you, Poindexter, I really do. You're important to this team and the organization is proud to have you; but, son, I can't fix what I don't know about." His gaze drills right into Will's carefully crafted armor when he pleads, "You've got to talk to us."

     

    One conversation at a time, Dex learns to stop hiding from his team and, ultimately, from himself.

    Summary

    Samwell is the kind of town where everyone knows everyone. That’s why everybody knows that Eric “Bitty” Bittle’s bakery is the only place to get a decent pie, why everybody knows that if you want to teach your kid to dance or sing you send them to Adam Birkholtz, and why everybody in town has a bet on when single dad Derek Nurse and diner owner and purveyor of Samwell’s best coffee Will Poindexter are going to finally stop messing around and get together.

    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.
