Have You Ever Thought? by AriRae

Jasper is a shy loner who has a major crush on popular jock, Edward Masen, who is straight. After running into each other a concert, the two opposites strike up a tentative friendship. While getting to know each other better, Jasper and Edward's feelings eventually evolve into something that goes beyond the confines of friendship, and they embark on a secret relationship. Jasper soon wants to come out and be free to express his feelings for the man he cares for, but Edward is afraid and would rather remain in the least through graduation. Will they be able to come to some sort of compromise?

This is a really cute story. The slow build of Edward and Jasper's friendship and eventual romantic realtionship was very sweet and I couldn't help but root for them. Dealing with the pressures of high school is no picnic, but somehow the guys manage to navigate their way through the chaos and support each other as best as they can. a highlight of the story are the t-shirts Jasper wears. Each silly saying is more hilarious than the last and I often find myself wondering I'll see next. Definitely give this story a try! It's a great mixture of sweet and angsty.
