awww thank you!!! it always makes me so happy to hear people like my writing, and yes I can absolutely slip in some Mavin for you
(this brand of headcanon asks is closed, but you can send in two numbers from this post for the current ask game i’m doing! this is just playing catch-up)
-I am SO down for class traitor Gavin. Bonus points for Gavin actually hiring the Fakes on his heart… but like, unintentionally, sort of?
-Meaning, he’s at this bar, getting absolutely sloshed, and this dude comes over to chat him up (perfect, Gavin loves attention) and he’s significantly more sober, gets him talking about his family and the old money and everything Gavin hates about his family but can never say. It’s not until the next morning that Gavin realizes the dude was probably going to rob him until he started talking about his powerful family; it almost makes him sad, because he would have gladly given the curly-haired man everything in his pockets for the simple fact that it would inconvenience his parents and aunts and uncles some.
-But to his surprise, a few weeks later he runs into curly-hair again (Michael, the man has to reintroduce himself) and he’s brought a friend? A very strange man with a ridiculous mustache and loads of tattoos and he’s wearing a suit to this fucking dive bar in the middle of the queer part of town, Gavin’s got no clue what to make of him. He also insinuates pretty strongly - alright, outright says - that Michael and Gavin slept together, which, no, Gavin’s glad to see Michael’s as embarrassed about those words coming from Geoff’s mouth as he is. (Though he’s certainly open to the possibility.) It makes him briefly worried when Geoff suggests the three of them head elsewhere-
-Until Geoff clarifies “about taking down your family?” and suddenly it’s like a dam has been unlocked in Gavin’s head, the alcohol-blurred night from a few weeks ago coming into focus: Gavin complaining to Michael, the two of them flirting a lot, Gavin lamenting his family, Gavin trying to get Michael to sleep with him (oh dear, that’s an embarrassing memory), and most importantly, Michael offering to help with his horrible family. That’s where Geoff comes into play, and some distant part of Gavin’s late-night internet rabbit hole searches pops up to say “hey, that’s the Kingpin, the most powerful criminal in this half of the state” and holy fuck what’s Gavin gotten himself into
-But hey, Gavin’s nothing if not a “leap first, look later” sort of person, so he heads back with Geoff and Michael to a safe house of some kind and they all talk. A lot. Like, it’s five in the morning when they’re done talking and Michael’s fallen asleep on the table level of “a lot of talking” and Gavin can’t help but notice how cute the dude is like that, face all squished up against his arm.
-He ends up just hanging with the guys; he doesn’t want to go back “home,” some fancy place his parents bought for him and he doesn’t care for. He feels much happier around the ragtag group of criminals: Jack’s more like a mother than his own, Geoff seems to have already accepted him as a part of the crew, Jeremy’s a riot with no self-control and Ryan’s so much fun to make do wild stuff. But by far, Gavin’s favorite to hang out with is still Michael, the two of them getting along like a house on fire (almost literally, in several instances) and Gavin decides he really doesn’t care if it’s friends or more that they end up being, so long as it’s something
-The hit on his family ends up being many hits. Gavin has to go back home several times to get info for the Fakes, who he’s offered his official services to (he is a bit of a tech genius, thank you fancy education) and every time he starts to get pissed at the way his one-percent family treats the rest of the world, he imagines how sweet it’ll be to watch their bank accounts drain and their estates fall into ruins.
-The final hit has a twist: Gavin needs to bring someone into his home to plant a few electro-thingies (Ryan couldn’t find the words to describe their function properly) so they aren’t disturbed while they take everything from the Frees. Pretty much everyone votes Michael go along… as Gavin’s boyfriend. Which. They’re not dating. Sure, they spend almost every waking second together, and they flirt constantly, and Gavin will grab Michael’s hand and Michael will hug him and - okay, yes, Gavin can see why they’d be a good disguise, but he still sort of wants to actually date Michael, and there’s only a week before the infiltration and after the meeting he panic-corners Michael and blurts “go on a proper date with me first, won’t you? We don’t have to pretend that way”
-He could punch himself for making it seem like he only wants to go out with Michael as some sort of bloody practice for the heist, but to his amazement Michael understands perfectly. And of course he does, why wouldn’t he? He’s Gavin’s boi, and vice versa, team Nice Dynamite out to redistribute wealth and maybe kiss a few times along the way.
