Tree Bros Fic Rec

side note: I’ll probably update this as I find more fics
Zoe straightened her back and narrowed her eyes. “I just talked to dad.”
Connor sighed and returned back to his spot in the bathtub. “About what?”
“About dating,” Zoe answered, closing the door behind her. The smoke tingled her throat and she ignored it.
“Let me guess, he said no,” Connor said, smirking.
Zoe bit her lip. “Not exactly.”
The conversation hadn’t exactly gone as well as she had hoped, but it didn’t end the same way as the other hundreds of attempts. Zoe had finally gotten her dad to change the “no dating until after graduation” rule that he had made during Connor’s freshman year and Zoe would’ve counted as a win if it weren’t for the circumstances. She was still debating whether it was a win or a loss.
A “Ten Things I Hate About You” Au with tree bros!
Word Count: 8k Chapters: 1/1
“This is like the third week in a row you’ve listened to this guy’s show, and you get all smiley every time he starts rambling,” Zoe said. “It’s like a celebrity crush, just that he’s not a celebrity and he goes to our college. So you should totally meet him and ask him out.”
In which ball-of-anxiety Evan Hansen hosts a Broadway-themed college radio show and Connor Murphy is his biggest fan.

The rain from this morning has stopped, and sunshine is forcing its way through the clouds, shining through the window. Eva’s eyes are sparkling in the light, and Connie laughs when Eva squints at the dazzling brightness, covering her face with her hand. It’s nice, spending time with Eva. It doesn’t feel forced, like most conversations that Connie has with other people, and there’s no one yelling at her either. She can talk to Eva without her worrying that Eva’s going to judge her, or call her names.
She likes Eva.
She likes her a lot.

Some things Connor finds after moving in;
One: Alana has absolutely no problem with him coming over in the middle of the night to steal her tea, or rant, or just sit on her tiny balcony and smoke. She even smokes with him, sometimes, if she’s on edge.
Two: The Other Next Door Neighbour™ sings in the shower. And not even normal stuff like the Chainsmokers, or Katy Perry. He sings show tunes, and Connor wouldn’t even know if he hadn’t gotten really into Cats for a time, and who the fuck doesn’t know Memories off by heart? Connor’s not some kind of monster (or, he is, but he’s not an uncultured one, at least).
(Or the AU where they’re next door neighbours and Connor gets locked out of his apartment)

(There’s also a second fic to this that’s around 20k words and 3 chapters. So if you like this then you’ll definitely like the sequel)

“I’m sorry,” he croaks and clears his throat. “I should have told you when it happened, I shouldn’t have kept it from you, but I was afraid you’d get hurt. I didn’t want you to-”

(AKA the obligatory aftercare fic in which Connor is Spider-Man and they have some things to hash out)
