SO WHAT ABOUT THAT MINYARD JOSTEN RELATIONSHIP FROM THE RIVALRY pretty please for the prompt thing haha
aah i’m not sure what you really wanted anon, but i hope you like this! it’s kinda short bc idek what creativity is
- once the media realizes that andreil are actually together, and not hating one another, suddenly everything they do gets painted in a romantic light rather than a malicious one (forget the homophobes we don’t want them)
- they’re going to watch the conjuring 2 in theaters together?? how cute, boyfriends on a date!
- they yell at each other in russian on court?? sO adorable they have their own language!
- andrew and neil are standing beside each other?? so scandalous they’re crazy for each other!
- the media doesn’t understand, though
- they never see andrew drawing neil out of flashbacks and panic attacks, keeping him grounded
- they don’t see neil understanding that andrew has days where everything’s a no, so he’ll make some hot chocolate and leave it at that
- they’re never there for the two of them sitting in silence on their balcony, sharing cigarettes and using their sock-clad feet to urge the cats back inside (neil insists smoke is bad for them)
- they will never see how gentle they can be with each other, hands fluttering over shoulders and backs and hips as their bodies rock together and soft noises escape both their lips
- as much as the media may love to talk relationship, they don’t truly know andrew and neil
- even the foxes have only gotten glimpses
- walking in on makeouts
- accidentally witnessing andrew stroking neil’s face
- watching neil fall asleep during movie night with his head on andrew’s shoulder and his body curled against his
- the only people who really understand neil and andrew are neil and andrew because they’re not like other couples
- they’ll never call each other sweetheart or honey
- they’ll never have kids
- but they’ll always be happy
