I kind of really need your james and maggie childhood friends au because as a person who has experience being outed, i don't want to imagine maggie just going through this experience all by herself.
maggie rushing to james’ immediately after it happens, heartbroken and scared
james not asking her what happened until she was ready to talk about it, just holding her as the sobs tear through her body (much too small for the pain contained within it)
james’ mom letting maggie stay there until she was able to coordinate things with her aunt and move in officially
james defending maggie at school, getting into fights whenever he so much as heard someone cough a rude name into their elbows as she walked by
james reassuring maggie that he would never turn his back on her, because that’s what family is
