    Summary

    Charlie is a 23 year old living in a punk house in Portland, Oregon some time in the 2010s. He’s graduated from therapy, he’s got a great group of people in his life, he’s politically active, and he’s got a fantastic sense of fashion. And he refuses to let anyone dim his shine anymore, not after being forced back into the closet again and again by a series of horrible exes and an equally horrible mother. But what happens when heavily tattooed, chronically-single Charlie sees a clean cut all-American boy walk into a community organizing meeting who won’t stop looking at him with his kind hazel eyes?

    This story is noncanonical and a big departure from Heartstopper but equally as saccharine, albeit rougher around the edges. Many scenes are inspired directly by Heartstopper, but this is a completely alternate universe where our characters are dropped into a completely different set of circumstances, on the same timeline as the comics. Namely, they are American and are in their early 20s. See the endnotes for more about the inspiration behind this story.

    Summary

    The first time Nick Nelson saw Charlie Spring play the drums they were both still in 6th form. The first time Charlie watched Nick play rugby was one week later.

    After Nick left Truham in year 10 to play rugby at St. Johns Sports Academy, Nick and Charlie missed finding each other in secondary school. But, Nick followed Charlie's music career from Kent to Leeds to STARDOM. And Charlie's love of rugby generally, and one specific Rugby Lad in particular, was an old joke between his close friends. Now, after both have gained their own celebrity, they are thrown together for a charity event, with a little help from their mutual favorite meddling gay, Darcy.

    Summary

    --Alternate universe. A mix of the show characters, book characters (Solitaire/Radio Silence), and the comic characters all together (because I love all of them). Everyone is aged up so we can explore more adult situations. Everyone is in their early to mid 20s. Eventual SA situation/discussion, will put a warning on chapters that may trigger some people.--

    Nick is lost. He lost rugby, he is losing Imogen, and now he might lose his mom. He doesn't know where to turn or what to do. A late night walk brings him to a small bookstore with a tea shop. A warm light invites him in, while a pair of deep blue eyes drown him in new powerful feelings.

    And Charlie still can’t quite believe it when he spots Nick, yes, his Nick, making out with some random pretty girl near the bar.

    Summary

    Nick and Charlie never got close in school, and Nick's rugby career ended before it started from an injury so he takes up baking as a hobby instead. Now ten years later, he's opening up a coffee shop and bakery. He puts out an ad for help to run his business when his longest and biggest crush, Charlie shows up.

    Elle tells Charlie that Nick Nelson is opening up a bake shop and needs help with the coffee and business side of things. Charlie thinks it'd be harmless to check it out, he needs a job after all, and there's no way his crush on Nick would still be there a full decade later, right?...right?

    Mutual pining, too many longing looks and stares, alternating POV.

    Summary

    “Nick. I’m telling you, it’ll be nicer for the pictures. More professional, you can’t be standing off to the side in every picture alone. Find some girl quick, or I’ll find one for you,” David said.

    “I already have a plus one!” Nick shouted at his brother in frustration. David paused, slowly turning around from facing the counter to face Nick. “What? Who is it? You never mentioned having a girlfriend before,” David’s eyes narrowed at him.

    “Charlie,” Nick blurted out.

    David, Nick’s brother, has his wedding in 2 weeks and he insists on Nick having a date for pictures.
