Birthday fic for my baby Hannah, although I am late as usual. You are just incredibly thoughtful and brilliant and basically the greatest person I know, and no words can describe how blessed I am to have you as my best friend. I love you and I hope you have the best year ever!
They’ve been a trio for longer than any of them can remember - their mothers were best friends before they were even a thought. But the last few months haven’t been easy. The only thing Madeline can even think about is getting into her first-pick college and nothing is going to stand in her way. Leven is a little lost - college was never in the cards for her, and now that it’s all anyone can talk about she is starting to doubt herself more than she’ll admit. And Alex… well, Alex is about to break the bro code and fall for his best friend’s little sister. The Golden Trio only has a few months left together to figure out how they’re going to handle being apart, and it comes with a lot of late-night pranks, a little jealousy, and more than their fair share of sneaking around.
omg thank you so much, this made my day xx
I can tell by the pain in his voice that he sees her on the ground.
friends turned lovers is literally my favorite trope - like, all other tropes can go home.
give me shared inside jokes that date back to wayyyyy before a first kiss was ever shared. give me living together with separate bedrooms until one of them gradually becomes unnecessary. give me confused reactions from people who already assumed the two of them were dating. give me arguments over what counts as an anniversary because should we start at the date we met or the date we became friends or the date we got over our stupid selves and finally started kissing.
give me stories that show the line between friends and lovers is a really, really thin one - that appreciating the friendship that two characters share doesn’t mean you can’t ship them really damn hard too. that you can keep all the awesome friends-being-assholes-to-each-other stuff and add on all the shippy stuff to get something extra special awesome.
give me all of that.
