i have this headcanon but my blog isn't really trc-related so i'll tell you instead. everyone wants to get adam fun stuff for his birthday but they know that it's their only opportunity where adam will accept the things he needs so they don't waste it. gansey gets adam a proper bed from ikea and blue gets adam a nice duvet. noah can't physically buy anything but he swaps his good mattress for adam's shitty one since it's not like he sleeps anyways. ronan dreams him an engine that runs w/o gas.
OMG YOU BEAUTIFUL ANON! This is brilliant okay. No but the four of them decide to help Adam set up the bed frame (it’s a really nice wooden bed frame that has four storage boxes - two for each side) And like everything is alright at first until they realize that adam’s apartment is so small and it’s going to be super crowded with all of them in there (plus the ikea boxes) so blue and noah decide that they’re going to bake a cake for adam back at 300 fox way and let gansey and ronan help adam with the bed.
And it gets hilarious because the boys have no fucking clue as to how to set up the bed frame. And they bicker about it like:
Adam: “Lynch I don’t think that part goes right there.“
Ronan: “i know what I’m doing, Parrish. See, I’m following the instructions.”
Gansey: “those instructions are in chinese.“
Ronan: “im following the fucking pictures!”
Adam: “the paper is upside Ronan"
Ronan: “oh for fucks sake!“
And they continue on like this for like two hours but they eventually figure out how to put the damn thing together.
And by the time they’re done, blue and Noah arrive with two cakes (one vanilla, one chocolate bc they didn’t know which one adam liked so why the hell not bake him two cakes) and they also bring fruit punch and party hats and balloons, which Noah insisted they buy. And they sing Adam the happy birthday song (completely off key btw) but Adam loves it, and they eat lots of cake and drink fruit punch and tell jokes and have a mini frosting fight and adam is just so overwhelmed by happiness that he cries a bit. And ronan, blue, noah and gansey hug him (BIG OT5 GROUP HUG.) (and ronan might have given him a kiss on the forehead but it was a quick one while they were all hugging so nobody noticed it but adam, but he was too happy to say anything. plus he didn’t mind)
And basically that night Adam has the best sleep he’s had in like..forever. And he’s so happy for having such amazing friends who care about him. AND NOW IM CRYING!!
