Oi! I’m 18, and from SO. Illinois, U.S.A.! I’m here because my location isn’t that populated, and I’m looking for a that special somebody.. I’m being too hopeful though, aren’t I? ; ^ }
My hobbies consist of drawing, cooking, RP, cosplay ( a newer hobby, my first cosplay is in my photo - Aoi Asahina of Dangan Ronpa ), animus+mangos+gaming ( I’m really into Dangan Ronpa + YOI + Madoka at the moment ), history, languages, and self-improvement! : D In addition, I love to drink tea, and stay up late when I can ( School nights are a nope for me ).
I don’t care where you’re from by the way! However, I do request you be within a timezone where you could regularly chat with me. I’m looking for something deeper, and long conversations - so please nothing superficial / hollow!!! I’m demisexual-panromantic if that helps anybody label-wise.
this was…so hard you don’t understand what it took me to find a context in which any of them would say please and this may be a little ooc but do i care? i want angst and i want andrew and neil learning to talk to each other. specifically, i want 2k of this
When Andrew Minyard first announced that he was going pro, three years ago, practically all teams of the National Exy League had stared to court him. His salary offers went higher or as high as Kevin Day’s–everyone knew just how much his love for Exy represented, and so convincing him to join in meant more than simply proposing “being a part of the best Exy team” (everyone knew he would make Court someday, anyway).
This meant that, for Andrew to choose a team to play in, it took him months. The offers came and went, flooding the mailbox at the Fox Tower–even more so when Kevin’s offers started–and causing heated debates among the team. Andrew had appreciated those, even if he hadn’t spoken more than a few words in each one.
There were some factors that helped narrow down his options: he didn’t want to be a starting goalie, nor make dozens of publicity campaigns. Not many teams would let him sit out of most interviews, either; that year Andrew had been pointed as Exy’s One To Watch, and everyone would want to have a taste of him when he went pro.
After reducing his options the maximum he could, Andrew had come to the following conclusion: he would either pick a better salary, better teammates (not that he cared about them at all) and a better court, or he would pick a shorter distance between him and Neil.
Considering Neil was going away from Palmetto after a year to whatever corner of the country, Andrew and Neil had thought best that he chose the former.
Wearing the Titans’ purple and gold didn’t come without its difficulties, of course. Andrew was a better player than most of his teammates and absolutely none of them understood the kind of person that he was; more often than not there would be a fight involving Andrew and one of the other players because they didn’t understand the concept of “fuck off”.
Besides, the Titans played in Massachusetts, and Neil–after months assessing his best options in a borderline obsessive way–was all the way down in Illinois. Though they tried their best to board planes back and forth whenever they had some time off, there was a time of the year–most of their year, it seemed–in which it was impossible to spend hours in the air and still enjoy time with each other.
Andrew didn’t care enough about things to hate many of them, but that wasn’t the case when it came to distance. He abominated it. Distance meant that he couldn’t wake up and see Neil drooling all over his pillow like the stupid five year old that he was; he couldn’t drive down a small stadium not known to many people and listen to Kevin obsess about Exy; he couldn’t glare at the cats who stayed at Neil’s apartment all those states away from his own; he couldn’t.
