    Summary

    Per Nora's extra content, Andrew is nearly always the big spoon. And given how utterly adamant Andrew is about verbal consent, there's no way he woke up wrapped around Neil one day, never spoke of it again, and continued doing it for the rest of their lives.

    A brief fluff piece on how, precisely, Andrew talked himself into spooning with Neil.

    Summary

    … As for the phenomenon known as Traveling, over the centuries several fundamental rules have made themselves clear, followed by vast amounts of speculation. A member of a Pair—a linked duo of Travelers—will only be able to Travel upon reaching their thirteenth birthday, meaning that—barring having the same day of birth—one person will be able to Travel before the other. (Although I would be remiss not to note that extreme circumstances can cause the younger party to be Pulled—or Travel without conscious will—before they reach the appropriate age.) While Traveling, a Traveler will not be able to speak or use any senses beyond hearing and sight; likewise, they will have no effect on their environment and remain unseen by everyone except their Pair. While Traveling, Travelers’ bodies go into a state similar to deep sleep and become very difficult to awaken.

     

     

    When Nathaniel first sees his Traveler, he almost shoots him on instinct.

    Summary

    Andrew is a bored lighthouse keeper on the Forgotten Coast. He tends to his garden, feeds the gang of stray cats that prowls his lawn, and occasionally parents the scrappy town orphan. He doesn’t need anyone else.

    Or: Neil Josten moves to town.

    Summary

    It's the summer after graduation and Andrew's life is on the cusp of falling apart. Aaron is going to college in the fall, Nicky is heading back to the life he left in Germany, and Andrew has to face the fact that he has once again found himself the one being left behind.

    It's their last summer together and Andrew has plans to spend it isolated and alone.

    His plans change when Andrew rescues a runaway named Neil from being mugged behind Eden's Twilight and their fast, unconventional friendship swiftly turns into something more, especially for Andrew.

    As summer winds to a close, Andrew's time to fix his family before they inevitably part ways for good is quickly running out and- unknown to him- so is his time with Neil.

    -----

    Written for the prompt from praising-the-foxes on tumblr: Somewhere along the way of getting into bar fights together, staying up all night with movie marathons, and other friendship things, I've fallen in love with you but oh God this could ruin everything.
