“Do you want to try it again?” Neil asks.

Andrew tips Neil’s chin up, softly prying Neil's lips open with the hilts of his fingers and placing the cigarette in between them. “Breathe it in. Do it slow and make sure it reaches down into your lungs. You will feel it. Here,” Andrew brings Neil’s loosely curled palm up over the expanse of his own sternum and flattens it there with his hand. Neil detects the faint stir of Andrew's heartbeat.

“Hold it for five seconds and kiss me.”

Neil does as he is instructed, his every thought pirouetting around the phrase kiss me kiss me kiss me.

Andrew said it out loud. That makes it real.

Something, Nothing & Everything - TheBashfulPoet - All For The Game - Nora Sakavic [Archive of Our Own]
Neil Josten is yet another name in a long list of identities used to hide a boy long since dead from a past blood had been spilled to forget. Essentially, he is and always will be nothing. And yet there has always been one thing that made Neil Josten real: music. After his mother’s death, music and singing were the only things tying him the threads of reality by the strap of a well-worn guitar. Too bad he’s pretty sure that it’s also going to be the thing to kill him. Especially when Kevin Day, international rock star and blast of Neil’s past comes waltzing back into his life demanding he joins the upstart and infamous band EXY as its new vocalist. To make matters worse, Kevin’s unofficial shadow, Andrew Minyard with a rap sheet taller than he is has taken an interest in the lie that Neil Josten and has made it his mission to uncover the bloodied truth that lies beneath.

By all accounts, Neil should just pick up his guitar and disappear like he’s done so many times before, but the chance to be real and seen is almost enough for him to plant his feet for the first time in 11 years he’s been running. Going into the spotlight means certain death, but Neil’s just not so sure t

i'm here right now (just be here right now with me) - Talls - All For The Game - Nora Sakavic [Archive of Our Own]
Neil first meets Andrew with a racquet to the stomach in a locker room when he's eighteen. Andrew first meets Neil with a hushed conversation on a beach in California when he's five. They still manage to meet on rooftops, fall in love, find family, and heal together, just not quite at the same time and definitely not in the same order.

(In other words, Andrew is the Time Traveler's wife.)

Andrew is a sports photographer with terrible coworkers, Neil is a professional Exy player who mixes reporters' tears with his electrolytes, Nicky thinks Andrew needs a boyfriend, and Kevin just wants to stop ending up as their third wheel.

Of the Same Stock - SanDoria, WriteThroughTheNight, neenya - All For The Game - Nora Sakavic [Archive of Our Own]
They are in Spain for the Inquisition where they set fire to their nearly identical commendations, and in France for the Revolution where they both nearly lose their heads. They are in China, in Mexico, in England, in Egypt. They are in the trenches of WWI and the concentration camps of WWII, but the common thread of all of these is that they are together. Angel and demon, side by side, letting the humans write their own history. And if Andrew thinks sometimes of writing his own history down upon Abram's skin, of pressing lips and putting in the effort, of feeling with the one being he trusts...

Well, there's just nothing for it.


Andrew and Neil are an angel and a demon respectively, and they still end up playing Exy.

Lucky - sunrise_and_death - All For The Game - Nora Sakavic [Archive of Our Own]
At thirteen, he’d lived in eleven different cities, gone by as many different names, and seen his reaper twenty-eight times. Some people would have called him lucky.

You Knock Me Out - iaquilam - Dear Evan Hansen - Pasek & Paul/Levenson [Archive of Our Own]
The printer is whirring when he steps inside the lab; when he glances at it, the paper is headed with Dear Evan Hansen so he snatches it up.
Evan Hansen is hunched at one of the computer desks, logging out of his google docs account and chewing on his thumbnail. Connor watches him for a moment, struggling for something to say, and then blurts out, “So what happened to your arm?”


Connor Murphy doesn't kill himself. There's an overdose of pills that doesn't get taken, help that finally gets offered, and friendships formed through group chats and unlikely circumstances. And everyone learns to live for the moments that are full of a little bit of light.

Different Wounds, Same Weapon - ungoodpirate - Raven Cycle - Maggie Stiefvater [Archive of Our Own]
“Welcome to the Lynch family. Good for you that you can hold your own. It’s not easy being on Dad’s bad side.” Declan paused, brow wrinkled, and snorted. “It’s not easy being on Dad’s good side. Look how he treats Ronan.”


A Pynch and Lynch family AU in which Niall didn't die and Pynch met in college. A family exploration of well meaning but horribly flawed father, an over-accommodating mother, and brothers that care but just don't know how to talk about their goddamn feelings. Plus, the boyfriend whose the catalyst to some change.

Light up the Sky - Millarca - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
When Uzumaki Naruto breathed his last, he didn’t expect to wake up in the world of the living again. He was old, and tired, and so, so ready to move on. And, well...he wanted to see his wife again, dammit.

But, of course, that wasn't what happened.

Why? Naruto screamed at the powers-that-loved-to-fuck-with-his-life-and-now-his-afterlife-too, with tears streaking down his cheeks, feeling cold, weak, hungry, and utterly disgusted.

Because you’re everybody’s bitch, Kurama helpfully supplied.

Better Than a Grave or a Hearse - iaquilam - All For The Game - Nora Sakavic [Archive of Our Own]
“What do you think of the Ravens’ new player?”
“He is nothing to me,” Andrew says, staring up at the ceiling, and then amends, “he can’t keep his mouth shut.”
Renee hums in agreement. “He doesn’t seem bad for a Raven.”
“Guns don’t seem bad until you shoot them.”
“Do you think he’s going to end up shooting someone?”
"I think that anyone who can’t keep their mouth shut is a liability and a danger.”
Or, Riko is hellbent on bringing Kevin back to the Nest, Andrew is hellbent on stopping him, and Neil Josten is hellbent on making problems for everyone involved.

Doe & Josten: Deductionists - SpangleBangle - All For The Game - Nora Sakavic [Archive of Our Own]
Andrew Doe, rude but brilliant consulting detective, thought he had no need of a partner as he worked slowly away at dismantling the largest crime family in the country, helping out with other cases on the side to relieve the tedium. That was, until a scruffy runaway with a stupid amount of secrets stumbled into his life. Or, more accurately, broke into his kitchen.

Signing on the Line - andrewiel - All For The Game - Nora Sakavic [Archive of Our Own]
When Neil Josten is offered a position as a starting striker for a professional Exy team, he feels like all of his dreams are coming true. He signs the contract, not caring about the strict morality clause that controls who he can and can't date in the public eye.

Then he meets Andrew Minyard, the top-ranked goalie of a rival team, and then Neil thinks he might just have to care after all.
