Restart ~ Chapter 14

read on ao3

There was a knock at the door. Frustrated, Neil twisted the pencil in his hands and tried to coax back the focus on his math homework he’d just lost. He was only starting to get into it; finally, the problems were beginning to make sense. They were a puzzle that gave him a thrill of satisfaction every time he found a new piece that fit. Usually Neil was good at math – quick, efficient, but he’d been struggling with this assignment all week.

The knock sounded again, an insistent rapping that chased away what was left of Neil’s concentration. Neil threw down his pencil and watched it bounce off his textbook and roll to the floor. When it landed somewhere near his shoes, he glared at the door and wished whoever was on the other side a slow death.

No one else was here to open the door, so that left the job to Neil. Kevin was at the store for groceries, not trusting his roommates to get food that was ‘actually edible and not something that’ll clog our arteries,’ as Kevin put it. Andrew wouldn’t get the door either, even if he wasn’t taking a nap in the other room.

Just when Neil thought that the person had given up and walked away, the third knock sounded. Sighing, Neil pushed himself up and went to go get it. It was probably Kevin, he’d already forgotten his key twice this month, Neil didn’t put it past him to do it again. He debated leaving him out there, punishment for making Neil lose the motivation to do his homework that he’d been scrounging up to all week.

Marcus from deadly class IS neil josten try to convince me otherwise

hi! i am in a andreil-loving mood right now, so if anyone has any songs to rec that remind them of andreil (or tfc in general) send them my way!

Guys

I need to know what Riko’s major was…like…so bad. What classes did the little asshole take? What? Were? They?

hi since i drew andrew in a tiddy window sweater i think it’s someone else’s turn to draw him in this shirt (maybe the background shorts too if you’re feeling saucy)

“I won’t let you let me be.”

These lyrics remind me so much of Andrew I love him so much

“If I could burn this town, I wouldn’t hesitate to smile while you suffocate and die”

neil throughout book 2 and 3:

Got new painting software, saw it had a star brush, and had to draw andrew

Neil:

The Foxhole Court

I absolutely adore the fact that Andrew and Neil wear matching arm bands.

All day Sometimes I think about how brave Neil Josten is and I just-

18 and the last time he flew it was with a different name and the strong grip of his mother’s thumb in his shoulder.

18 and alone and one of the last times he was in a car it was with his mother last breaths and her desperate fear.

18 and the last time he was in a man’s house it was his mob uncle’s and before that his abusive father’s.

18 and my son just disobeys breaks free of his mother’s last command, flies on a plane by himself, gets into the car of a virtual stranger, and goes straight to his new coach’s house — all for the game.

the m in “men get pegged” stands for matt boyd

T H E F O X E S: Mattew D. Boyd

the foxhole court: “Matt Boyd,” the man said. “I’m a junior this year, and I’m the Foxes’ starting backliner.”

the raven king: Matt Boyd, starting backliner for the Foxes. I’m the one who’s going to be wrecking your goals this October. Nice to meet you.” He held out his hand but didn’t look surprised when no one took it. “Guess the pleasure’s all mine.”

In regards to the “Aaron is not homophobic” post I made:

Lol someone said “Aaron is homophobic because he doesn’t talk to Erik” ,,, and I’m like

Hmmmm nah sis

Did y’all forget that resident Gay King Andrew Minyard doesn’t talk to Erik either?????¿

Alright, sis

Neil’s not scared of anything.

It’s a problem. Or so he’s told.

If Andrew let him Neil would hang off the edge of the roof for fun.

If Andrew let him Neil would see how fast he could grab a gun and shoot a target in the head.

If Andrew let him Neil would stand in the middle of a freeway and try avoiding the unbelievably fast cars. A game of chicken.

If Andrew let him-

But that was the thing wasn’t it. If Neil really wanted to Andrew would let Neil do all of those things.

And that was the thing wasn’t it? Neil wasn’t invisible, he wasn’t afraid of nothing.

But years and years of being afraid of something so big, so undeniably invisible as his father… it dulled the other more rational fears.

Heights, Andrew hated. But he treated fear like an old friend. A coping mechanism.

If Neil were to face his fear once again… his father again… he wouldn’t survive. Not just in the literal sense. Mentally he couldn’t take the blow.

Neil is so overly familiar with fear it chokes him. He knows fear better than he knows himself and even Andrew. Everytime Neil has to meet fear again he dreads it. Because instead of grounding him like it would with Andrew, it tangles and coiles in his veins. Fear is a hot iron and fear is a British accent screaming Abram and fear is almost losing his family-

So no. Neil is not afraid of nothing. He just avoids the feeling like the plague.

Andrew knows this.

That’s why he acts as Neil’s anchor. Because Neil’s fear is the unforgiving sea and the one thing that could destroy Neil. So Andrew is there to protect him from the storm.

He cradles Neil in a way that couldn’t possibly be considered gentle. It’s much more of a shielding and a sheltering with his body. With it comes a constant silent whisper of you’re safe you’re safe I’m here and I’ve got you and you’re safe.

It shakes Neil to his core.

And it reminds him when Matt ruffles Neil’s hair and when Allison takes him shopping. When Renee kisses his forehead and when Nicky compliments his laugh and when Dan hip checks him fiercely. When Kevin nods at him after a win and even when Aaron acknowledges him for getting him his favorite candy bar. When Andrew kisses away his fear and replaces it with something much more soft and much more sweet and much more dangerous.

It reminds him.

There’s more to life…

Than fear.
