i'm so good baking and cooking

Okay but

Andrew and Neil cooking/baking together

  • It’s Matt’s birthdayand Neil wants to bake a cake for his best friend
  • But Neil can’t bake. He just can’t
  • Neil’s boyfriend on the other hand can bake
  • Just as well as he can cook
  • Do you think there are always shops open when he has to maintain his sugar high? There aren’t 
  • We all know about Andrew’s sweet tooth, and when has he like beig dependent 
  • Neil knows because he has tried Andrew’s pancakes and cupcakes and generally anything that can have extreme amounts of sugar in it
  • And he really wants Matt’s cake to be good so he promises Andrew anything he wants if he’ll help him
  • Maybe he tried first and the kitchen was such a mess Andrew actually welcomed the trade, because he was one second from shooing Neil off the kitchen and taking over ayway
  • So Andrew gets to work, taking out pots and pans and flour and the like
  • Neil just enjoys watching him work for a while before he joins him to try to help
  • Well, using the word help liberally
  • Because Neil is a disaster
  • He manages to spill milk on the floor, knock the chocolate syrup from the cupboard on his head open AND fling the eggs he was holding at the wall when he slips on the milk
  • Andrew hears the crash from the other room, because he left for two seconds to look for a specific cook book, and rushes to the kitchen
  • He walks in to see Neil, on the floor in the middle of the milk puddle, with chocolate syrup dripping from his head down his face and on his shirt, vacantly staring at the eggs on the wall
  • Andrew is relieved because he doesn’t do well with loud sounds he can’t place when Neil is not near him, curtesy of Baltimore
  • But on the other hand, he stares at this dumbass and wonders how he’s in love with him
  • This kid will be the death of him, one way or the other
  • He stares at him and then reaches over to the bowl of flour that’s near by, and with a perfectly straight face throws a handful at Neil
  • Que food fight that leaves them covered in flour and dripping chocolate
  • Que making out session because they can’t have lips and faces covered in chocolate and waste them
  • Afterwards Andrew orders Neil to clean himself up so he can finally make the cake
  • The cake is spectacular
  • Matt just stares at it for five minutes because he lived with Neil, there’s no way that guy made this
  • But then he ses a bit of chocolate syrup behind Andrew’s ear and just decides not to ask
  • Everyone loves the cake and they have a great time
  • Renee maybe smiles at them a little too knowingly, but everyone’s laughing and Neil is surrounded by his family and they are celebrating his best friend and he’s just so happy
  • When Andrew comes to collect on his promise that night, Neil think this might just be the best day of his life
