    Summary

    His too quick and unsteady breaths were the only sound in the quiet room.
    Staring into the darkness, he bit down on his bottom lip to stop the sobs threatening to rip out of him.
    He must’ve looked so stupid to Andrew.

    Or, Neil and the fail-safe 10-step plan to get the man of your dreams to fall in love with you!

    Summary

    Ronan lives with his mom, dad, and brothers at a somewhat-disused farm. They still have cows, and apple trees, but they’re not farmers, don’t make a living from it. His dad is away a lot and his mom stays at home. This means there’s always lemonade and cinnamon rolls ready when Ronan gets home from school.

    Every day he sees a young boy bike past in the morning and again in the afternoon. He’s only seen glances of him, the glimpse of a worn backpack, shorts in the winter, and an old, rusty bike. He’s pretty and Ronan is entranced in a way he doesn’t really understand.

    (OR: An AU with no supernatural elements where Adam and Ronan meet each other at age eight and grow up as best friends.)

    Summary

    There’s a new god in the pantheon; Andrew remembers hearing about the scandal a while back, the newest Demeter having a child with the current Zeus and then going on the run, child in tow. They call him Persephone, the god of springtime and new life, the antithesis of Andrew's realm. It would be ludicrous of Persephone to ever interact with Andrew at all.

    If only someone told Persephone that.

    --

    “Hades, right?” Persephone asks.

    “Andrew,” Andrew responds, and Persephone hums.

    “Nice to meet you, Andrew. I’m Neil,” Neil responds. Andrew cuts a look sideways to see Neil watching him, something assessing in his gaze. Andrew nods in response. “I have to say, you’re not nearly as scary as everyone says you are,” Neil continues.

    “You barely know me. Give it time,” Andrew says, because the rumors don’t exaggerate. People fear him for good reason.

    “I’d like to, I think,” Neil says. Andrew quirks an eyebrow at him. “Know you,” Neil clarifies. Before Andrew can think of a response, Neil’s head turns. “I have to go. Zeus called for me, and he’ll notice if I’m missing. Thanks for the cigarette.”
