don't look over your shoulder

IT’S SEPTEMBRE

And that’s not a typo.
It’s the month of Bre.
Mandatory hugs for all, and lots of love.

Every HS AU I read (doesn't matter the fandom/bandom)
  • Main character (popular athlete/rich kid): I act like I'm fine but I'm really not (blah blah blah "i'm more of a writer than a football player" blah blah blah "i wear a mask" blah blah blah)
  • Love interest (who tends to be a dork/geek/nerd/nobody for some reason but has also been friends with the main character for 5+ years): Hi let me help you, you don't look happy
  • MC: NO
  • LI: BUT
  • MC: NO
  • *about three-five chapters in*
  • LI: YOU'RE PERFECT TO ME
  • MC: OKAY YOU'RE PERFECT TOO
  • *kiss*
  • LI: I should probably mention that I have an evil ex who's kind of messed up and may want to kill you once he finds out
  • MC: We'll work through it omg ilysm (insert name here)
  • LI: Ilyt (insert name here)
  • MC: I'm just so happy to be with you, (insert name here)
  • Evil Ex: That not right
  • LI: I'm happy to be with you too (insert name here)
  • *about six-??? chapters in*
  • MC: I'm really not as perfect as you think I am (blah blah blah "I've been living a lie" this is where the author inserts some confession along the lines of suicidal thoughts/self-harm/anxiety/depression/paranoia of the sort)
  • LI: I've loved you since I was twelve years old and we were best friends forever and ever and for some reason my feelings started to change for you...
  • MC: OMG NO WAY ME TOO
  • *really awkward sex scene that makes you pray that no one is looking over your shoulder jfc*
  • Evil Ex: Don't go near (insert name here) or else I'll hunt you down
  • MC: *does anyways*
  • MC: *ends in hospital in a coma (can I take a moment to ask why some character is always in a coma?)*
  • LI: NO HOW DID THIS HAPPEN OH MY GOD I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT HIM/HER WHY IS THE WORLD SO CRUEL I THINK I MIGHT KILL MYSELF
  • MC: *wakes up*
  • LI: YAY HI I WAS ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING STUPID LIKE KILL MYSELF BUT THEN YOU MAGICALLY WERE ALL BETTER LET'S HOLD HANDS AND WALK INTO THE SUNSET HECK MAYBE OUR PARENTS WILL TOTALLY ACCEPT OUR RELATIONSHIP
  • Correct me if I'm wrong.
