Self Fulfilling Prophecy: Self fulfilling prophecy, Zoe had called it when she’d heard, and ironic enough, Connor found himself laughing for the first time in months.
Mental Hospital!AU where the Murphy’s give up when Connor fails to kill himself and Heidi finds out Evan let go. The solution to both? A ‘short’ stay at the local mental hospital. Somehow, Connor always knew he’d end up here. Evan, not so much.
“What the hell are you so sad about?” Murphy asks, and really there’s a million different ways Evan could answer, but at least nine hundred and ninty-nine of them could end with Connor throwing him up against the wall, and that’s something he’d really like to avoid, so.
Evan glances down and begins to pick at the edge of the blue scrubs he’s been forced into, and the words get lost somewhere between his throat and his whirlwind of a mind, and so when he speaks it’s a command to his brain to focus - to not screw this one up, Hansen. Remember what Dr. Sherman said, just, be normal, be better - and the words come out coarse and stuttered on account of the fact that they are being ripped out unwillingly from inside him, but they come out nonetheless.
“I’m just- this just isn’t- isn’t where I thought I’d end up, I guess.”
The ’I thought I was getting better’ part goes unspoken between them, fitting nicely between the ‘I never knew it could get this bad’ and the ‘I don’t belong here’, but going by the vicious way Connor’s lips curl Evan knows he’s still heard them, and his mind begins to buzz even louder.
Connor smirks, fingers mindlessly itching over light blue material as he leans backwards, a violent attempt softened as his head thumps against light yellow cushion, and laughs a laugh bordering manic.
“Well, sucks for you then, Hansen. It feels like I’ve been waiting my whole fucking life to get here.”
