    Summary

    Neil works three low paying, dead-end jobs and makes just enough money to afford a room to sleep in and to keep himself from starving. He has no prospects, no hope, no future. That all changes when a chance encounter results in a job offer that he can't ignore.

    The job? Pretending to be professional exy player Andrew Minyard's boyfriend.

    Summary

    Social misfit with flighty tendencies seeks email correspondence with someone who doesn’t like small talk and doesn’t ask personal questions. I don’t really know who would respond to something like this, but if you’ve ever been so alone that you knew for a fact that dying would have a net zero impact on the world, my email address is abramnewemail@hotmail.com and I want to know what you think makes people cruel.

     

     

    --

    In which Andrew gets stood up by Abram, his pen pal and soulmate, on their first date. Disheartened, he finds consolation in his most annoying coworker, Neil Josten, who coincidentally shows up alone at the restaurant at the same time.

    Summary

    Tumblr prompt: [Kevin visiting the nest (post Riko's death) to recover some of his old things that he'd left behind... And recovering some old memories too...]

    The nest is smaller than Kevin remembers. Darker, too. How did he ever live without windows? The outside world seems so distant down here, grass clippings and breezy mornings and grey skies no more than flickering, fading dreams. The black décor is blacker, somehow, walls and ceilings crushing down on him. He can feel the weight of the stadium overhead like a physical ache. Nobody will be playing on it, not today, but still he swears he can hear the phantom clatter of footsteps and racquets echoing through the hallways.

    Riko Moriyama is dead. Kevin knows it, the Ravens know it, the Foxes know it, and in a matter of hours, the papers will know it too. But down in the nest, which hasn’t changed in any perceivable way in the years since Kevin lived there, the line between past and present is a blurry, temperamental distinction.

    Summary

    SHOCK: Kevin Day reveals both Andrew Minyard AND Neil Josten are to fill his coveted Best Man position!

    Fans have been speculating ever since Kevin Day and Thea Muldani announced their engagement as to who Day would ask to be by his side. Many discounted fox involvement entirely, suggesting fellow famous exy players such as Jeremy Knox, Jean Moreau, or even Marcus Jameson. The few that speculated that either Andrew Minyard or Neil Josten would be chosen were stoutly supportive of one and discounted the other. Who could have foreseen that Day would choose both! How these two famously antagonistic players will fare will remain to be seen. Good luck Kevin and Thea!

    Or

    Kevin choses both Andrew and Neil to be his best man, and the three of them give their first ever interview together.
