    Summary

    "The tattoo was a set of footprints snaking up the right side of his torso, from the top of his hip to just under his nipple. They were the same footprints that trailed around the Map. The Map that, above all other things, symbolized the Marauders for him.

    What did it mean, asked the tattoo artist over the hum of the needle, her tongue stuck out the side of her mouth, not really paying attention. What could he say? It meant mischief and mayhem. It meant solemn promises and late nights and sleepy mornings. It meant friends in unlikely places."

    Inspired by SavySami's amazing artwork of the Marauders all tattooed up!

    Summary

    Bram always thought his longstanding crush on Simon Spier was two things: 1) perpetual and 2) impossible. Simon had girlfriends. Simon had an effervescent personality that seemed to pull people to him. Simon didn't freeze in the moment or constantly get in his own way. Bram envied him and wanted him, but he knew there was no way straight Simon could return his feelings. He'd accepted that already.

    All that changed when Simon came out to their lunch table one afternoon. Suddenly, Bram's crush wasn't necessarily impossible; at least, it wasn't impossible in the same way. Now if only he could find a way to communicate without stumbling over all his insecurities. That's when he decides to slip a note into Simon's locker. And with that simple note, a series of emails begins. Behind a pseudonym, Bram feels freer to be himself and open up to Simon. But he has no idea how to bridge the new virtual gap between them.

    Summary

    Seb sighs. “We’re on a long five.”
    Nini winces. “That bad, huh? Any idea what’s happening with the scene next?”
    Seb snorts. “Why would I know? I’m just the guy who plays the music for the whole thing, why in the world would anyone tell me
    anything?”
    Nini gives him an appraising look, her eyebrows drawing together. “Are you… okay?”
    Seb doesn’t answer, because if he starts telling her now he might have a breakdown. He just leans his forehead against the piano and dies inside.

    -

    The thing is, Seb knows he's just the piano guy. He came to terms with that ages ago. But it doesn't help that Carlos isn't talking to him, or that he's being pulled this way and that throughout every rehearsal by Miss Jenn. He's stumbling through this semester more or less alone, apart from the girls bugging him about his crumbling relationship, and he's never been much of a talker anyway. It all just feels impossible.

    Then again, Carlos always knows how to surprise him.

    Summary

    “You can apologize by staying warm,” Carlos huffs.

    “And where will you be going?”

    “To the kitchen.”

    “Then I have to follow you,” Seb sneezes again. “You can’t be left unsupervised in the kitchen.”

    “No, no,” Carlos tries to push him back down on the couch, but Seb pushes past him, stronger than he’d expected – did all that farm work give Seb muscles? “You’re cold and you need to rest,” Carlos argues.

    Seb glares at him. “I can’t just sit down.”

     

    ------------

     

    Or, after a night of singing carols with Carlos, Seb feels under the weather and Carlos makes a little homemade gift of his own.
