Juke; a very short story:
Luke stares out of his bedroom window, watching the night sky as his mind struggles yet again to come up with new song writing material. His eyes bounce from one star to the other, frustration growing within him even as he marvels at their shining beauty.
Suddenly a shooting star briefly chases away the inky darkness of the sky, making its way across its expanse as it lights everything up in its path, momentarily blinding him. It‘s the brightest burning star he’s ever seen.
He blinks away the bright spots in his eyes once the star disappears as abruptly as it appeared, and remembers his mother telling him all those years ago about wishing upon shooting stars.
And while Luke doesn’t necessarily believe in any of the little silly stories he was told as a child, he figures he’s got nothing to lose.
“Oh brightest burning star,” he starts off dramatically, waving his arm in the air, “I wish for music to come pouring back into my life. Help me find music again!”
Luke laughs at the silence that follows, then laughs at himself some more before shaking his head and turning back to his bedroom, ready to flop onto his bed and mentally prepare himself for his last first day of school.
The very next day, Luke Patterson hears Los Feliz’s new transfer student, Julie Molina, sing for the very first time.
He starts believing in miracles and childish fairy tales the second her voice reaches his ears. Because either Julie Molina was the shooting star blazing across his sky last night, or the stars decided to grant him his wish.
Either way, music found its way back into his life with blinding force, all in the shape of one new transfer student.
Julie Molina, his brightest burning star.

Sending like a normal person 🙄😂
I want number 10, any pairing, the more awkward and adorable, the better.
10: A hello/good-bye kiss that is given without thinking - where neither person thinks twice about it - ok you give me free reign then you know i'm going Luke/Reggie and WOW this got long lmfao
Reggie doesn't even notice it when it happens. Luke's making the rounds, collecting money from each of them before he leaves to go pick up the pizza they ordered. He gets to Reggie last, who just barely manages to scrounge up enough singles to pay for his share.
Luke snorts as he flattens out Reggie's money, counting it again before he pockets it. "What, no tip?" he teases.
"I…" Reggie goes bright red. "I don't have--"
"I'm kidding, Reg," Luke says, rolling his eyes as he pulls Reggie into a quick hug and presses a kiss to his cheek. It's not until Luke leaves the garage that Reggie realizes that both Alex and Bobby are staring at him.
"What?" he asks with wide eyes.
"What the fuck?" Alex asks, point-blank.
"What??" Reggie asks again as he reaches up to touch his face. "Is there something on my face?"
Bobby snorts. "Yeah, Luke's mouth." Reggie goes bright red. "Something you two forgot to tell us, bro?"
Reggie's speechless at first. He'd totally missed the fact that Luke kissed his cheek. He presses his hand to his right cheek and smiles like a total dweeb before he realizes what he's doing and drops his hand.
"I…" Reggie clears his throat, "no, I don't know why…"
"Uh-huh," Alex says. He clearly doesn't believe him, and judging by the look on Bobby's face, he doesn't either.
"I need some air," Reggie says as he quickly exits the garage, slamming the door behind him. When he looks up, he realizes that Luke's just a few feet away.
"Hi," Luke says as he cracks a nervous smile.
"I, umm…" Luke chuckles bashfully. "Do you wanna come get the pizza with me?"
Reggie swallows hard as he walks over to Luke, and the pair head for the sidewalk in totally awkward silence. Neither of them say a word until they reach the corner and pause before they cross the street.
"I don't know why I did it," Luke says suddenly. "It just… like… happened."
"I, umm," Reggie clears his throat, "I didn't even notice?"
"Like, Alex and Bobby definitely did. But I just… didn't?"
"Sorry," Luke mumbles. "I won't do it again."
"No, you--" Reggie goes red when Luke looks at him. "You can do it again, if you want," Reggie squeaks out. Luke chuckles.
"I-If you want." Reggie shrugs. "I'll, umm, pay attention this time."
"Okay," Luke says with a bashful laugh. "Maybe when we get back to the garage."
"R-Right." Reggie nods, breathing out a deep sigh.
He thinks about it all the way to the pizza place. When they're waiting inside, he can't stop staring at Luke's mouth. By the time they get back to the garage, Reggie's about to lose his mind.
"Are you gonna do it?" he asks once they're halfway up the driveway. Luke pauses with the pizza box in his hand, turning to face Reggie with a half-smile on his face.
"You want me to?"
"I mean, i-if you wanna. Like, I don't wanna make you do it if you don't--"
Luke snorts and pulls Reggie close, pressing his lips to his cheek to get him to shut up. Reggie's whole face goes bright red and he lets out a soft whimper. Luke licks his lips, still so close that Reggie can feel his breath when he laughs.
"How was that?"
"G-Good." Reggie clears his throat and laughs nervously. "Definitely noticed that one."
"Can I do it again?" Luke asks, licking his lips again as his eyes drop down to Reggie's mouth. "Maybe a little different this time?"
"Yeah," Reggie breathes out, hoping against hope that Luke means what he thinks he means.
He finds out very quickly that he and Luke are very much on the same page. Luke presses his mouth against Reggie's in a tentative kiss and Reggie shivers when their lips meet. When Luke pulls back, Reggie follows and keeps kissing him.
"If you're gonna make out in the driveway can you at least give us the pizza so we don't starve?" Bobby asks in a snarky voice, snapping both of them out of their little stupor. Reggie turns even redder as Luke laughs, handing the pizza over and telling Bobby to get lost.
"But… pizza," Reggie says mournfully as Bobby disappears into the garage.
"Pizza can wait," Luke murmurs as he pulls Reggie back into another kiss.
