    Summary

    AKA the Lavender AU.

    Andrew and Neil don't meet in Millport, they find each other ten years later in the South of France, near the crumbling walls of Chateauneuf de Grasse, just before the hills begin to bloom with lavender.

    This is a story about memory and loss, love and healing, and how even a flower that has been stepped on can grow back in time.

    Summary

    Neil is a mess, academically and romantically. But to be honest, so is Andrew. Featuring Gauss the dead cactus, Kevin’s flashcards, a whole lot of junk food, a knitting club, Matt’s mom friend of the year award, bad flirting, first dates, snogging in cars, and all the usual blood, sweat and tears that come with selling your soul to academia.

    Summary

    The one where Andrew makes a perfectly reasonable request and Neil takes it too far like the dumbass he is.

    Or, relationships are complicated and communication is hard. They don't always nail it.

     

    So, Andrew has hit his limit. Neil’s charged silence next to him is so loud that Andrew can’t read over the buzz of it in his ears.

     

    “Get out,” he says, turning to glare at Neil.

     

    Neil blinks at him.

     

    “Whatever stupid thing you’re obsessing over. It’s irritating. I don’t have time to solve your problems for you. Handle it. I have to study.”

     

    Instantly, he realizes it was a mistake. He watches Neil’s face and body shutter up, closing tight like he’s locking down for a hurricane. It took so fucking long to get Neil to open up in the first place. Andrew had to peel him open one truth at a time. Fuck.

    Summary

    There’s very little Andrew likes less than being tricked, but not knowing things does make the cut. He stands, throws his messenger bag over his shoulder, grabs his coffee, and stomps over to slide into the chair across from the guy. He looks up at Andrew with a flash of calculated flight or fight in his eyes, but he quickly smooths this over and affixes a look of polite interest on his face. “Can I help you?”

     

    “Are you on Grindr?” Andrew asks. Bluntly.

     

     “Uh,” the guy says, looking more confused. “I don’t know. What is it?”

     “It’s a hookup app gay men use.”

     “Oh,” he says, frowning. “No, I’m definitely not on that.”

     “Because you don’t do gay men?”

     The guy shrugs. “Because I don’t do hookups.”

    Palmetto was a town that bordered on surreal; they were a town that lived alongside the beings that Abby liked to call Greenies or Wymack liked to call They Themselves or Betsy liked to call the Folk of the Air. The tourists, though, just called them “magic things”.

    Summary

    “You’ll probably never meet them,” his mother said one day at a diner in Texas. It caught him off guard.

    “What?”

    “You’ll probably never meet them,” she repeated, nodding in the direction of the lilac bruise splashed across his forearm. “Your soulmate. You’ll most likely never live that long.”

    “I know,” he said, and hoped that she believed him.

    --

    In which bruises and scars from your soulmate appear on your skin, and both Neil and Andrew paint each other like a canvas.

    “Watch it,” Andrew says, hunching forward. The table is damp and sticky under Neil’s hands, and it wobbles left every time he moves. “You’re wit stopped being cute months ago.”

    “Funny. You keep saying that, though I believe you less and less every time.”

    “Word to the wise,” he advises, “it’s better to keep your mouth shut and look stupid than open it and prove it.”

    Neil shrugs. “Do you think our pumpkins died?”

    Summary

    Andrew realises he’s faced with two choices: hold onto this or let it go forever.
    And he hates that.
    Almost as much as he hates Neil.
    He watches as Neil turns away, walks up the length of the room once, stops, looks back. “It’s ok,” he says, his voice drained of any emotion, face set. Sure. Resigned. “You always said this was nothing.”
    Andrew nods. Remembers there’s a cigarette dangling between his fingers, so brings it back up to his lips, holds it there, doesn’t even bother breathing in.
    “Ok,” Neil says again, and leaves the room.
    ---
    before andrew graduates, neil asks him to make a choice.

    Summary

    Neil had seen the guy around campus a few times. It was hard not to. The exy team stood out. Or those three did, anyway. The twins with their shock-white blond hair and perpetual resting bastard face, and Kevin Day, the number 2 arrogantly tattooed on a high cheekbone, flanked as usual by at least one of the twins.
    And Neil knew their reputation. It’s why he stayed away.

    “I guess I just don’t understand it. How can you just be attracted to a complete stranger?”
    “That’s the appeal,” Andrew retorts.
    “What?”
    “It’s a simple transaction. No complications.”
    “Complications? Like what?”
    “Conversation, obligations, baggage,” Andrew says dismissively. “Annoying habits. Emotional intimacy. That sort of thing.”

    “No,” Aaron said. “Andrew, no.”
