i regret the b&w i used now

More Philkas because why not (this is Kiyon’s fault) 

- Lukas showing Philip pictures of his mom
- Lukas picking up Philip to go to school every morning when they’re out
- Philkas study dates and Philip being so intent on doing everything perfectly and getting the highest grades because he doesn’t want to end up having hte life his mom did, he wants to be something
- This leads to Philip falling asleep against his textbooks and Lukas having to tuck him in
- Lukas getting sick and Philip bundling him up and bringing him tissues and homemade soup (which is not gourmet but it’s far better than anything Bo or Helen could make)
- Philip catching whatever Lukas had and being tied to the bed kicking and screaming because he refuses to rest or stay home from school- even though he’s burning a 102 fever and “God Dammit Philip, it’s the dead of winter and 10 degrees outside! Can you at least wear a long sleeve shirt under that Jacket?” 
- Helen giving up and making Lukas stay home too to help watch over Philip
-Who then protests because “LUKAS DOESNT NEED TO MISS SCHOOL TOO SOMEBODY HAS TO MAKE UP THE WORK FOR ME”
- Coffee shop study dates because “All the time is coffee time Lukas, it’s a life style okay?”
- Rose is their biggest fan, and then becomes Philips best friend
- Or tries to be
- Philips best friends are really kids from his neighborhood: Maya and Stephen
- Stephen is a flirty shit and it makes Lukas mad because that’s his boyfriend
- Maya is this bubbly, sly girl who likes to size up the rich kids that pass through the coffee shop. She’s middle class at best and definitely pulling through. She brings fancy soda from trader joes to celebrate Philip’s fosterhood
- Maya and Rose get along too well
- Maya and Philip are as close as people get, they’re siblings at heart and she’d do anything to protect him and vice versa 
- Lukas will later admit he’s a little jealous that Philip has friends like that, because he never did
- “Well hey you’ve got me.” 
- And yeah he sure as hell does
- Philip is a bitchy city kid sometimes who likes to size up people and make quit witted remarks as ammunition, Lukas soon finds out that Philip could probably ruin lives with the information he’s picked up in the hallways
- He also knows that Philip intends on being a little hurtful when his tone gets a little low and his voice a little slow, and the ends of his words are a little too exaggerated (just like in the Cabin at the very start of them, the way he told him “Rose said it was ‘dope’,” with the drawled intention of his dissatifaction.) 
- Lukas also likes being the subject of Philips pictures, they end up on his tumblr blog and Philip gets elated to see so many people enjoying them
- For Christmas Philip buys Lukas a new helmet
- And Lukas buys him a new patch to go on his leather jacket
- “It’s your own mark, so that way you’re not just living in the shadows of your grandfather- you’re making it your own. A fighter in your own way.”
- Philip near bout bursts into tears, Lukas can’t remember Philip ever hugging him so tight
- Lukas likes to take Philip places that his mother used to go
- Philip gets a little bold sometimes and really likes dancing and going to clubs
- Even if he seems like a shy smol b
- He loves to dance like no ones watching with Lukas under strobe lights to loud music and be extra coy
- Lukas can’t relate though, he just hates feeling like everyone is watching
- “Lukas nobody cares!” 
- “I care! I feel ridiculous!” 
- Imaginably now philip is just undoing his button down and drinking another shot and w o w Lukas regrets this but his boyfriend is having fun so it’s okay
- at least other guys are grinding on him and then Lukas gets into the grind just to make sure Philip isn’t getting taken from him (he’s selfish that way)
