    Summary

    Wanting, wanting, wanting.

    Andrew had let go of the longing to want years and years ago. He had died to start over without the need to want. He was living two lives only to protect what was his, but he was ready to let go and spend the rest of his days on the shore of Burlesca, drowning his memories in the waves crashing against the cliffs.

    Wanting. Wanting. Wanting.

    Strands of dark hair peeking out from a couch swept the ground underneath him. Clear blue eyes sparkling with the joy of having healthy legs pierced him. He wasn’t allowed to want. Not even an illusion. The coniglio would disappear as fast as he crashed into his world, and Andrew didn’t have any reason to learn to live without him if he hadn’t even learned to live with him.

    Wanting. Wanting. Wanting.

    Wanting was more dangerous than any other thing that Andrew had known.

    Summary

    Andrew is in South Carolina with Aaron; California and its dangers finally behind them. But between the pills and Tilda's violent mood swings, it's clear to Andrew that his twin still isn't safe. He knows no one else is capable of protecting him and that he can't lose him now. He's already given up everything for Aaron, so he offers his twin a deal.
    Besides, with Abram missing, he really has nothing left to lose.

     

    Part Two of 'Ink Stains and Paper Cuts' - I seriously recommend reading that before this one if you haven't already!

    Aka

    Summary

    He can’t explain what happened, one moment things were fine, the next there was a body on the ground and when he looked up,he locked eyes with Andrew. It was for a split second, but it felt like years. Neither of them moved, staring each other down the hallway. He couldn’t speak, couldn’t explain. He was so screwed.

    He took a half step forward, to take care of this, one way or another.

    Summary

    An AU where Mary never got Nathaniel out. Instead, he became too invaluable of an asset to be killed off or 'gifted' to Tetsuji. Instead, he's raised with Ichirou and Jean as a part of Ichirou's inner circle.

    He'd always had a knack for languages and lying and all the 'messy stuff' came easily enough when your father is called the Butcher of Baltimore. So Nathaniel became the Wraith. He was untraceable, unknowable, infalliable; a criminal fairytale.

    When Kevin Day leaves the Nest, there's no better person to send.

    ~

    "Who the hell are you?" Andrew demanded.

    He wasn't anyone, not really; not anymore. He hadn't really been anyone in years now. There'd been a time. Once. But there were entire lifetimes between who he could have been and what he'd become. He could taste it sometimes; blackberries and sand stinging his tongue like the iron branded on his shoulder.

    It was easier to pretend he'd never been anyone at all.

    "I'm nothing," he answered. the ghost of a smile pulled at his lips; sharp and cruel. "A wraith." The Wraith, he didn't say, but the shadows ran through Adnrew's eyes and he wondered if Andrew had heard it anyways.

    Summary

    “Do you think King and Sir don’t want me to go?” he asked, accepting the pants Andrew was passing over and throwing them in his suitcase.

    “Maybe,” Andrew said, pushing Neil away from the suitcase so he could fold the clothes inside rather than leave them in bundled up messes. “Or you need to keep a better track of your things.”

    “But I do!” Neil argued, throwing his hands in the air. “I always do! I know exactly where my stuff is all the time, but it keeps getting moved.”

    Andrew raised one eyebrow. “Or you think you know where everything is.”

    “Or I’m going crazy,” Neil whispered, staring at the ground. “Do you think they’ll make me stop playing exy if I’m crazy?”

    ~*~

    Or, every time Neil needs to leave for a game, his things mysteriously disappear from his suitcase. He's determined to figure out just who keeps taking them.

    Summary

    He wanted to tell Andrew every day if he got to see this side of him, but Neil needed to make sure that it was okay to do this. That it was something Andrew wanted, because Neil was pretty sure nobody had told Andrew just how beautiful he really was.

    “Yes or no?” Neil asked, sure that Andrew would understand.

    ~*~

    Or, Neil thinks that Andrew is really pretty and can't stop thinking about it. It was bound to be blurted out one day.

    Summary

    the music was grand, loud, almost ominous. it was mournful, with an elegiac quality to it, raising goosebumps on neil’s arms.

    andrew was not moving with the music, sitting straighter than neil had ever seen him sit, but his hands moved with hypnotic grace, moving fluidly from key to key like water cascading over rocks. as the music edged towards a crescendo cracks started to appear on the mask of apathy he wore: the furrow between his brows deepened, jaw clenching so hard it was evident even from across the room.

    it seemed like the rawest display of emotion he had ever seen from his partner, the delicate, careful skill completely unlike the blank, uncaring apathy he normally displayed.

    or,

    there is a pianoforte in the living room of the cottage andrew and neil rented for the summer, and andrew reveals a hidden talent. conversations ensue.

But adjusting to a quiet life has its difficulties, and between high school, therapy, and now joining his new older brother Kevin's band, Neil has a lot to learn. With the help of his new family and friends and a deal with the drummer from Kevin's band, he might be able to manage it, though.

    Summary

    Even though Neil doesn't mind that the swan he affectionately named Honker keeps returning to his cottage, he is growing a bit worried over Honker's reluctance to talk to him. So Neil decides if he wants to become friends, he's going to have to gain the swan's trust.

    On the flip side, Andrew isn't sure why he keeps returning to Neil's cottage. The witch is distracting, makes good food, and is the only human he's come across since he's been cursed. And he also can't deny that Neil pushes all his buttons in the right way, and that's going to become a problem.

    ~*~

    Or, Andrew and Neil bond over the three months after the curse was casted.

    NOTE: There are eleven parts before this I'd recommend reading first to understand what's happening, but you don't have to read them to get what's going on.

    Summary

    It took a moment for Neil to realize exactly what was happening and why. Clearly, the relative safety of the last ten years had eroded away his inherent paranoia until he didn't notice the weight of several small animals waddling all over him while he slept, because at least three of the little creatures were standing on his chest.

    He cleared his throat.

    "Um. Hello?"

    ---

    Neil becomes the temporary guardian to seven ducklings and no one knows how to handle it, least of all Andrew.

    Summary

    Though he tried to keep the day as normal as he could, Neil still got up a whole hour earlier than usual to take his run and attempted to make some eggs that burned when he got lost in thought. Andrew walked into the kitchen with a scowl and helped clean up the mess, making something actually edible with a mask of perfect calm. But Neil was an expert in Andrew’s facial expressions by now and could tell he was a bit nervous about what the day would bring.

    Facing Riko? No problem. The mafia? Neil could deal with it any day. Watching two little blonde girls that said words like ‘fishies’? Neil felt like his heart could stop at any moment.

    ~*~

    It's Aaron and Katelyn's anniversary, and they'd prefer to spend it child-less.

    Enter Neil and Andrew, who are going to do their damn best to give these kids the best sleepover ever.
