I Don't Know How to Say This ('Cause You're Really My Dearest Friend) - evol_love - Dear Evan Hansen - Pasek & Paul/Levenson [Archive of Our Own]
An Archive of Our Own, a project of the Organization for Transformative Works
a Jared Kleinman/Evan Hansen fic
“So, I saw Jared earlier. And he was kissing this boy. And I didn’t think I had a problem with stuff like that, I’ve never had a problem with it, but then I saw them and I felt like I was going to throw up and I had to run away and now I’m here, calling you.”
Or: Evan and Jared become friends again in college, after everything that went down senior year. But just as things are finally going well, Evan learns that Jared’s gay and interprets the horrible feeling he has seeing Jared with someone else as homophobia.
(Spoiler alert: it isn’t.)
“I’m not going to write fic for this,” I told myself when I started getting into this musical. Nearly 9k later…failed step one. It’s got pining! Misunderstandings! Stir fry! Please enjoy!
