    “There’s a language to flowers, right?”
    “Uh. Yeah.”
    “How do I say fuck off in them?”
    “Excuse me?” Adam tilts the right side of his head towards Ronan, wondering if he just misheard.
    “Fuck off. But with flowers.”
    “Oh. That is what you said.”
    “Yes.”

    Summary

    Neil tiptoes out of the bedroom, bare feet silent on the cold, wood floor. He’s thrown a hoodie on in concession of the frost on the windows, but he still shivers slightly. The air is dry and sharp on his skin, scars aching as winter greedily wrings every last drop of moisture from it.

    He flexes his fingers gingerly. He rolls his neck until he hears it crack.

    Only in winter do his bones feel as brittle as glass.

     
    AKA: A cozy, winter day in the life of Neil Josten and Andrew Minyard in their apartment after college.

    Summary

    Zuko is a marginally famous poet who writes under the pseudonym the Blue Spirit. Facing the lingering fears of a family he escaped from, a failed past relationship, and a lack of direction in his life, he's not sure what to expect when a beautiful boy in his college poetry class catches his eye.

    Sokka is an engineering student pulled back by his love of the humanities who falls for the brooding guy in the corner, completely unaware that this guy is actually his favorite poet, the Blue Spirit. All he knows is that he's fascinated and he's determined to know more.

    But when feelings end up a bit deeper than either bargained for and secrets come to the surface, will love and poetry be enough to bring them back together?

    Summary

    It wasn’t exactly that Adam was afraid of heights, so much as he didn’t like being suspended in midair thousands of feet above the ground. And it wasn’t exactly that Adam hated Ronan Lynch, so much as he didn’t like outrageously arrogant assholes who were unfairly good looking.

    But Adam could safely say that these two things combined were not on the top of his list.
