my fave au of all time is john managing to get into a very very prestigious private school despite the enormous tuition fees on a scholarship

and dave’s bro bought his way in so dave acts like a huge douche and thinks john is a dirty poor kid ew don’t touch me

and anyway john being john, he manages to pick his way into fights but somehow the two end up being friends??? and dave protects him from the bullies and shit (and it turns out he’s a giant nerd underneath anyway)

then dave realises that he really admires john. a lot. in a very gay way as well as the aspirational way

and then what??????? what happens next????
