    Summary

    Andrew Minyard never thought he would have a normal life. he was thrown from Foster home to Foster home, forgotten and alone. He learnt to forget hope, forget wanting things, forget feeling all together.

    Suddenly he's sat in a room with his apparent cousin and another person who looks exactly like him and they're offering him a home. A family. They own a bookstore with an apartment above and Andrew agrees to go with them. He finally feels like he can make a life somewhere. He even starts a book club.

    One of the sign-ups for the book club is Neil Josten, he has no hope, no family and he's full of secrets. Can Andrew help someone else heal whilst still reeling from his own past trauma? Perhaps his new life won't be as quiet as he thought.

    Summary

    *This takes place during a time-skip in the final chapter of 'say something', over the course of the week before Andrew and Neil's second solo trip to the Columbia house. *

    A Tuesday thru Saturday chronicle of a rough week for Andrew and Neil. Sorry friends I'm really bad at summaries. The boys are super soft with each other when they aren't making me want to cry, and that's basically the whole fic.

    Summary

    With his free hand, Andrew pulled out his phone and looked again at the message Neil had sent him about it.

    talking is hard today.

    Not 'I don’t want to talk' or 'I have nothing to say' but 'talking is hard'.

    ***

    On a bad day, Neil struggles with his own mental state, and Andrew figures out how to be there for him. As they wade through this together, both young men realize its okay to lean on each other and that they are capable of both reaching out as well as hanging on. Also, Betsy has shipped them from the beginning, let's be completely honest here.

    Summary

    Andrew is prepared for a boring summer on the island he and his family have recently moved to. There’s absolutely nothing on his agenda but reading in the attic, knitting by the open fire, and fishing with Aaron and Nicky on the pier.

    Once Andrew comes across a runaway hiding in a seemingly abandoned lighthouse, however, the summer turns out to be not so boring after all.

    Summary

    Ok but I’ve always wondered about the missing scene in TKM where Wymack and Andrew go to get lunch for the team after the whole Aaron-Allison-Andrew debacle. Care to ellaborate?
    Yes. Yes, I would. (I tried to keep it in character but the whole checkout scene is incredibly self-indulgent but I refuse to be sorry about it.)

    Summary

    Neil goes to Edgar Allan for winter break with the intention of soon returning to PSU... only when he does, it's with a contract in his pocket as a Raven, to let Wymack know that he isn't a Fox any longer.
    (That he's switched teams to protect his friends... to protect ANDREW, not that he'll ever admit such a thing out loud.)

    Andrew returns to PSU free of a detested drug but not of familiar, awful demons, only to find a certain lying rabbit (a certain pipedream) has run away to Edgar Allan, and refuses to have anything to do with Neil Josten anymore.

    Only it's not as simple as that, is it? Not when Riko is still determined to tear the Foxes down, to prove that he's 'better' than Kevin.

    When others know the truth about Neil, and Andrew's feeling for him.
