    Summary

    Jagged peaks of blue and black, flattened by distance, are the only feature of the snowy expanse below the plane. The cloudless sky bleeds into the white, the horizon a hazy line of muted blue across the curve of the earth before it darkens in counterpoint to the faint glow of the ice. There is still sun now, light just cresting over the boundary between land and sky, and within weeks even that will be gone.

    Zuko watches Antarctica draw closer as the plane descends and tries very hard not to lose his last meal.

    When Iroh suggested that Zuko get away for a bit, it sounded reasonable and even desirable—Zuko can’t imagine a better place to run from his issues. Now that he sees the barren stretch of ice and cold, the longer he sits here and the exact nature of what he’s signed up for has time to sink in, the more this feels like a banishment.

    Summary

    “Oh, Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, you guys and your goddamn traditions—
     
    “Nah, you’ll like this one. It’s incredibly asinine.”

    “I feel like I should be offended by that.” Ronan considered. “Continue.”

    “Before you graduate, you’re supposed to streak the Lawn.”

    Or, a weekend visiting Gansey leads to a night with a stranger Ronan never expected.

    Summary

    Aaron’s ready to step in the shower when Kevin walks into the bathroom without knocking and says, “Scoot over.”
    He drops his boxers on the floor, brushes up against Aaron’s equally naked body, and steps into their bathtub.
    “I—” Aaron guffaws. “I was gonna shower.”
    Kevin turns the shower on and raises his brow. “Yeah, so? Come in then.”

    AKA a ridiculous combination of "they were roommates, oh my god, they were roommates" and "two bros chillin' in a hot tub, 5 feet apart cause they're not gay"

    Summary

    “If you’re really sure,” he starts, and Neil nods along. “I could do it.”
    “Uh,” Neil says, and suddenly his thin sweats and shirt feel far too hot. “What?”
    “If you want,” Andrew says, looking Neil straight in the eyes, determination burning Neil up inside. “I could help.”
    “You would—,” Neil says and Andrew doesn’t even wait for him to finish before nodding. “Why?”
    “You don’t want your first time to be with some frat boy. Trust me, you don’t,” Andrew says. “If you decide sex isn’t for you, you don’t want that to be your only experience. You need someone who’s good.”
    Neil swallows heavily. “And that’s… you?”
