Terrible Things (KELLIC) (Wattys2017)
In this project, I'll be taking some of the "fiction" out of "fanfiction." Unfortunately, life doesn't always work out the way we wish it would if our lives were fanfictions. This story is simply the story of one boy falling for another, only not. It's the story of how Kellin Quinn, a nerdy and quiet student exhausted by high school, was swept into a world of sex, drugs, and drama by the rebellious and occasionally untrustworthy Vic Fuentes. It's a plot you've heard of a thousand times before, and you'll think you know the ending right off the bat.
In my junior year of high school, I lived out this plot that seemed so stereotypical to me. And I thought I knew exactly how our story would end.
In this fanfiction, I document how very wrong I was.
