Author’s Note: So it’s a bit of an understatement to say that this fic is my baby. It just kind of took over my first PBB idea and worked its way into being one of my fave things I’ve ever written, and also one of the biggest efforts I’ve ever given in writing a fic. I’ve put a big piece of myself in this fic, and I hope that yall can relate. huge hugs and love to my beta and artist for being flexible and offering so much support and encouragement of this idea, and for their hard work throughout this whole process. extra shoutouts are also due to @hearteyeshowell and @philslesters, who were with me every step of the way and, as always, whose impact on my work is immeasurable. Enjoy. <3 [You can also read on AO3]
Dan sits on his doorstep, legs stretched in front of him, knocking the toes of his trainers together until he sees Ella’s car pull up. To be fair, he heard it before he saw it, and she waves at him as she quiets the noisy transmission and gets out of the car. He grins and waves back, nearly losing his footing as he stands up. Dan pokes his head into the house to tell his dad he’s leaving. When he locks the door and turns around, Ella’s right in front of him, dangling keys in his face.
“Guess who’s got a car?”
“How many guesses do I get?” he asks, snatching the keyring from her hand and holding it out of reach.
