    Summary

    written for robron christmas calendar: a friends to lovers au.

    or,

    And Aaron, he knows all about that. He nods his head and tips his pint in agreement, and Robert nods back. They have an understanding, really, about just about everything. It’s nice. It’s easy.

    Or it would be, at least, if seventeen-year-old Aaron hadn’t gone and fallen head over fucking heels in love with Robert Sugden.

    The constant thudding of his heart, the way butterflies unfurl at the sight of his best friend – it’s normal, now. The new normal, the one he accepted seven years ago. It’s almost a comfort. Almost, because there’s some things Robert doesn’t need to know.

    Summary

    robert wants a boyfriend to bring home for christmas to piss off his family, and aaron wants his mum to stop trying to set him up with finn barton. faking dating to get through the holidays is obviously the logical thing to do. because faking a relationship has never gone wrong for everyone.

    Summary

    “Aaron..." I find my voice at last, "what's the last thing you remember?”

    You look away for a moment, as though trying to put the pieces together. Your face is confused and I imagine mine is much the same.

    “I... we were driving home from dropping Liv and Mum off at the airport. Liv flew back to her mums today, didn't she? She’s not well.”

    You look at me and I so desperately want to tell you yes, that you're right, but you're not. You’ve forgotten so much, Aaron. How am I meant to tell you that you left me over a year ago?

    -

    The last thing Aaron remembers is him and Robert being married and happy; can they find their way back to each other as they both relive how they fell apart?

    Summary

    the one where connor catches aaron and robert.

    or,

    “What’s going on?” A voice asks. Sounds dejected and angry all at the same time. Robert shifts off of Aaron so fast he nearly falls off the bed but his boyfriend’s (is he? Is Aaron his boyfriend?) fingers curl into his sleeve to catch him.

    Connor. Fuck.

    “Connor, wait-“ He says, but Connor doesn’t wait for an explanation – just turns on his heel and slams the door behind him, the windows rattling from the force. “Fuck!”

    “Rob,” Aaron murmurs. His voice is soothing, calm and gentle. Robert doesn’t understand how he’s like this right now. “Come here.” He smooths a hand over Robert’s shoulder blade and pulls him in at the same time, until they’re chest-to-chest, the older man’s face tucked into Aaron’s shoulder.
