Mob wears a bandana with flames on it and they host a tv show where they exorcise spirits at restaurants and are introduced to flamin good recipes. Don’t worry Guy’s a good mentor, mob is essentially unchanged. I might draw more lol
An alternate meeting where Neil is Andrews psychiatrist.
I can’t really see them getting together ever with Neil as his psychiatrist because I feel like Neil in a position of power over Andrew would not make a move and Andrew would be super uncomfortable in that scenario if he did.
But I do have ideas about Andrew using Neil as a type of therapy and that bringing them closer. So AU version of Neil’s first year at PSU.
“Kyle” is an anonymous guy Andrew’s been messaging and all he knows about him is that he also goes to PSU
“Kyle” is really Neil lying and claiming his name is something else because Neil’s mother has taught him to hide his identity and he’s on the fucking run
He’s not about to divulge even the slightest bit of information as Neil Josten
Andrew immediately guesses it’s a fake name (beyond just the Neil fake name, like he’s layers deep) and Neil only gave him a first name
So, Andrew refuses to give his name too
The whole messaging thing started off because they’re both bored and okay, a little lonely
But they’re never going to admit that or reach out to the people around them
It’s so much easier to anonymously message someone
And Neil is still all sorts of careful trying not to give away that he is Neil Josten or that he’s not really Neil Josten
So, at first it’s a game of Andrew is bored and this anonymous guy is vaguely interesting
Neil doesn’t divulge much at first, but does give out some little truths that shouldn’t feel as heavy as they do
In real life, Andrew and Neil are antagonistic and Andrew’s bitter that he finds Neil interesting
So he tries to distract himself with message guy
And at first, he’s sure message guy couldn’t possibly be Neil because Neil Josten has never shut the fuck up about exy in his life
Andrew admits things he would never admit to anyone in person or as himself
Neil hands over truths that he would never be able to say when he looks like he does, even if he is trying to cover up his appearance with hair dye and coloured contacts
They have a game of exchanging something real beyond just idle small talk
Eventually, they end up clinging to having someone to talk to without any real-life consequences for their admissions
Neil desperately wants to know who the guy is, but he won’t ask for any identifying information because he does not want to supply any about himself
That is too dangerous and he knows that it is stupid, stupid, stupid letting himself get this attached to some anonymous guy
But he can’t handle being totally on his own anymore and this is safer than getting too close to his teammates
And it’s not like he’s going to rope whoever this guy is into the danger like he roped the team in when Andrew talked him into staying
Andrew wants to stop thinking about Neil Josten and wants to find out identifying information about message guy
But any time he pushes it a little, message guy stops responding for a day or two
And Andrew wants to meet the guy and is also nervous about the idea of meeting some random guy
And clearly the random guy isn’t comfortable with it
So Andrew just leaves it be for the time being and takes what he can get
And I’ll probably post a part two of this at some point with how they find out who the other really is
HEYO STAR WARS FAM! it’s me, calling from the other side. Lmao, I am so funny, rip. ANYWAY, there has been a LOT of negativity in the fandom lately and meanwhile, I am more than HAPPY that I do not have any part in it, I do see some of it on my dash. It makes me SAD &&. makes me think about how we used to be ( wow, cheesy ) when I joined, the fandom wasn’t like THIS but well, time never stops ( *fight the urge to athlete student meme this —* ). So, I know, I know - this post won’t change ANYTHING but I just wanted to do something to maybe cheer us all up a little. Negativity should not take over a fandom and should not be the reason people neglect their blogs. Have your Clique, have your faves as long as YOU feel comfortable because THAT is all that matters. And now, something bright &&. nice so yes, under the cut are some Positive Callouts!! happy reading and spread the positive vibes!
