they suffer.

nicky + knitting +andrew + sweaters  @neilsexy is my muse (hey eden ily)

  • okay so once nicky moves back to germany he learns how to knit right
  • and he always sends stuff he’s made to the foxes (because nicky is amazing and cares So Much) and especially to andrew and neil bc they’re so smol and their pro team is somewhere up north so it’s cold a lot and nicky is a Concerned Parent
  • whenever nicky asks andrew and neil while they’re skyping if they’ve gotten the things he’s sent them andrew scoffs and claims he’s gotten rid of them in various ways (“I put the sweater on a stray dog” “I used the scarf to build neil and I a fire” “I threw it out the window to get some carolers to stop singing”)
  • nicky completely believes him bc it’s andrew we’re talking about he would definitely do all of these things, we know he would
  • but neil loves the gifts and makes sure nicky knows it, he wears them a lot bc it makes him think of his family (pause for tears)
  • BUT

neil wearing a loose sweater around the apartment (and i’m talking loose enough to slip off his shoulder and expose his collarbone) long enough to reach his thighs and that is simultaneously one of andrew’s most and least favorite of neil’s clothes

(kinda for @allyasavedtheday, who was kind enough to yell with me about andreil hugs (and just the foxes+hugs in general))

It’s been a year. A year since Neil’s father died, since Neil almost died at the hand of his father. He doesn’t want to think about it, but the memories push themselves to the forefront of his mind when he sees the date on his phone and the concerned glances of his teammates when he walks into the girls’ room for lunch. Even the new Foxes know something is up, and glance at Neil.

It’s Saturday, the day after another win that brings the Foxes one step closer to defending their title in the finals, so Coach gave them the day to relax and recuperate from last night’s celebrations. The only people not looking hungover right now are Andrew and Renee. Neil himself isn’t hungover, but his sleep was plagued with nightmares, so he’s guessing he looks about as good as Dan right now, which is at least better than Nicky.

Conversation is sparse, and doesn’t distract Neil from his memories. After avoiding the twentieth sideways glance from Nicky, Neil’s eyes land on the scars on his knuckles. His muscles lock for less than a second, but everyone must’ve noticed, because what little conversation there was, disappears completely. He gets up to go and be out of sight of everyone for a while. Andrew, who’d been sitting next to him on the floor, gets up too and makes his way to the door without a backward glance. Neil follows him.

They make their way to the roof in silence. Neil opens the door as Andrew lights a cigarette. It’s just past midday and the sun is still high in the sky. The leftover chill from winter is barely noticeable in the air.

Neil sits down near the side of the roof. He crosses his legs and he leans forward, elbows on his knees. If he cranes his neck, he can see the ground below. He expects Andrew to sit down beside him, but Andrew, as always, defies any expectations placed on him.

Neil almost turns around when he feels Andrew’s presence at his back and sees Andrew’s legs stretch out on either side of him. Andrew’s hands are on his knees, black bands just visible from underneath his sweater. Neil takes Andrew’s cigarette and holds it up, studying it. He watches the little embers glow red and then fade as he waits Andrew out.

‘Yes or no?’ Andrew asks.

Neil keeps his eyes on the cigarette, but from his peripheral vision he sees Andrew lifting his arms and bending them slightly like he’s going to wrap them around Neil’s waist.

‘Yes. Always yes,’ Neil says.

‘Stop saying always,’ Andrew grumbles, but he shuffles a little closer, then wraps his arms around Neil’s waist and pulls just a little. Neil takes it as the okay to lean back.

They’ve never done this before. They’re both a lot more comfortable with casual touches these days, both from each other and their teammates; they usually sit with their sides pressed together, sometimes Neil wakes up with the weight of Andrew’s hand on his stomach. But they’ve never really hugged or cuddled. Not like this. Not with intent.

Neil closes his eyes and breathes in the smells of Andrew, smoke and whisky and sweat. A relaxed smile forms on his lips as he lets Andrew replace another bad memory with a good one.

‘Give me back my cigarette,’ Andrew says.

Neil holds the cigarette up by his shoulder, filter facing Andrew. It’s a challenge. They can either share this one, or Andrew needs to let go of Neil to light another.

‘293,’ Andrew mutters before hooking his chin over Neil’s shoulder and taking a drag.

need me some more matt+neil bromance™ headcanons like????

  • matt’s a sap and makes dan mixtapes occasionally and he starts making some for neil too after nicky buys him an ipod (nicky tried to convince him to get an iphone at first but neil just wanted music to listen to on his runs)
  • he ropes the other foxes into it too asking for recs so neil has a chance to listen to a bunch of different stuff and find the genres he likes
  • neil’s fav playlist from matt is one with a very unsubtle team/found family vibe like can you imagine
  • neil takes his no more lies promise to matt very seriously
  • if he ends up pulling out a foreign language in front of matt he usually tries to give a reason for it later even if it’s just “it was personal”
  • most of the time matt doesn’t think anything about leaving things on high shelves but sometimes he’ll do it on purpose just to see how far neil will go to avoid asking for help trying to reach a box of cereal or something
  • this ends up backfiring when neil stacks like two chairs and a box to help him hang up christmas lights and matt suffers a mini heart attack whenever the whole thing wobbles slightly
  • speaking of christmas lights matt starts decorating his room for various holidays so neil has a chance to participate 
  • (nicky and the girls are very on board with this idea and it eventually turns into decorating the whole floor and neil is so amazed every time)
  • movie nights
  • they start trying to coordinate their class schedules so they have breaks every couple of days for boxing lessons or just to grab lunch
  • like boy’s a mess in the kitchen alright but he tries and andrew gets first dibs on any baking that goes down but matt’s usually the guinea pig for healthier kevin-esque stuff like those weird protein smoothies(???)
  • and sometimes they’re disgusting and sometimes they’re alright and the two get really into experimenting with different ingredients or whatever bc they’re nerds kevin may or may not get dragged into it and he may or may not be even more into it than they are
  • this is all really random and i’m sorry but their friendship honestly gives me life
