Soulmate AU- identical handwriting
This wasn’t supposed to be this long

Theater had never been much of a calling for Will. He thought the drama club was full of freaky teenagers with too many hormones to handle. Like the band kids, but in black clothes instead of weird hats and stiff uniforms.
But when Will heard that the play they were going to perform was pro-LGBT, he couldn’t resist the urge to at least audition. It was about time they stopped performing shitty comedies and shitty hetero romances. Granted he wasn’t sure if this would be a shitty cliché gay romance, but he was willing to at least read the script.
When he got to the theater room where auditions would be held, he was surprised with how many kids crowded the room. “Here you go,” one girl said, handing him a paper and a packet. “It’s the audition scenes and an audition sheet. Fill it out with your name, how to reach you, school schedule, any other extracurricular activities you’re in, and what part you want. Then you can give it to the girl in the director’s chair.” Will glanced over and saw a girl with green hair talking excitedly with the boy beside her.
He sat down and began to fill out his sheet. He could hear the girl and the boy talking just a few feet away.
“Come on, Nico. Please audition. I think you could be a great Odysseus.”
“I’m a techie. That’s it. I’ll help out with the stage, but I’m not acting.” Will glanced at the boy. He didn’t look like a person who would enjoy being part of the drama club.
“This isn’t up for discussion. Take the damn paper, fill it out, and audition.”
“God, Kayla, fine!” he snapped, taking the paper.
“It’s gods today, buddy!” she called after him. He glanced back at her angrily and sat down at a desk. Will looked around for the director, but he couldn’t find them. Then Kayla stood and called for everyone’s attention. “Okay everyone! I’m glad to see so many new faces here! I’m Kayla, I’ll be directing this play, along with my friend Lou Ellen.” Another girl waved from the desk Kayla had been at. “So just fill out the sheet, hand them over, and we’ll get started. Did everyone get a script?”
She smiled when everyone nodded. Will stood up and handed Kayla the sheet. Maybe going for a lead role was too much, but he was up for playing a minor king. Beside him, Nico stomped up and handed Lou Ellen his paper. “I hate you both. Don’t cast me.” Will glanced at him with raised eyebrows. Nico looked back at him and furrowed his eyebrows. “What?”
“Nothing,” Will said, trying not to smile in spite of him. They went to their own desks and waited. He heard the girls begin to giggle as they looked through the papers.
