Chapter 8—Fall VI Part 1 (AO3 mirror)
Summary: While Gavin lives in a world of silence, Dan and Michael both live in a world of sound and lack thereof. The Ramsey family and accompanied teenage sign-language translator move to a close-minded neighborhood in Texas, where Gavin and Dan meet a certain Michael Jones. When Michael assumes that Gavin’s deafness is the only thing that defines him, Gavin does what he does best and decides to make his school and home life a living hell, all while stumbling through the normal problems that normal teenagers have dealing with their not-so-normal relationship with their translator.
Chapter summary: And then, they try to glue the pieces back together again.
Notes: Eventual Gavin/Dan/Michael. So I want to apologize for another two parter chapter. After the next part will be the start of Winter and we’ll be back to regular chapters! Thank you all for your continued readership. Messages and feedback are always appreciated <3! Also, content warning for discussions of child abuse.

He couldn’t breathe. He wasn’t panicking. He was just shocked to the point that he couldn’t breathe. Or maybe that was what panicking was. Right now, he didn’t have the slightest idea of the reasonings behind his reactions, his mind only focusing on one thing and one thing only—Gavin knew.
"It’s easy to look at the Vagabond and imagine him the cruelest — but Haywood only wears ruthlessness as a mask, to intimidate and enthral. The Red King’s malevolence is a part of him, hidden like iron thorns beneath gentle petals.
Roses are red, yes, but do not forget that red is fire, and red is blood. In his dominion, they are all one and the same, and they answer to none but him.”
