The first time they go to the movies on a real, official date, Hannah thinks she might pass out from giddiness.
Hannah x Baker. 2,000 words.
An outtake from Her Name in the Sky, Chapter 17. Details Hannah and Baker’s first time going to the movies as a couple. Spoilers for HNITS, but you don’t have to have read that story to read this one-shot.
Thought I would share this backstory behind the “Six-Pack.” I wrote it last summer for my own purposes when I was trying to unearth more about Hannah, Baker, and their friends. It helped me fine-tune my understanding of the group’s interpersonal dynamics.
I’m sharing it in its original form, without making any edits. (It was last edited in September 2013.) Some things in here are already present in the novel, like the story of how Hannah and Baker met. Some details in here were later changed for the final draft of the novel. I’ll put an asterisk next to anything that needs clarification. Hope y’all enjoy!
Hannah met Wally and Clay in her General PE class freshman year. Fall semester. Wally was scrawny but handsome, with his light brown hair and fern green eyes. He wore glasses. He looked like he would do absolutely anything to avoid hurting someone. When the PE coach told them what to do, Wally listened without questioning. He worked hard, played fair, didn’t draw attention to himself. He wasn’t great at anything, but he was good at everything. He was a fast runner. Hannah stood next to him one day, both of them leaning against the gym wall, and asked him if he had done the World Geography project yet. She knew that he knew they were in the same class. “Yeah, I did mine on Chile,” he said, and she was surprised that he didn’t sound shyer when he spoke. “I liked that section you read aloud from your homework last week. The one about South Africa. Is that what your project’s on?”
And this year, when Hannah presses her naked body to Baker’s naked body, Baker kisses her and whispers that she loves her.
Hannah x Baker. ~2.5k words.
Takes place in the spring of 2013, a year after the events of Her Name in the Sky.
They acknowledge it without acknowledging it. Baker brings it up one night in mid-February, during their goodnight phone call.
"What do you want to do for Easter?" she asks, her voice suddenly higher than normal.
The question surprises Hannah. “Oh—I don’t know,” she says, falling back into her desk chair. “Why, what were you thinking?”
"I don’t have class on Good Friday," Baker says tentatively. "I was thinking maybe I’d fly to Atlanta that Thursday night?"
Nice photo-shoot…oh wait…she’s just getting gas.
SHAY MITCHELL, EVERYBODY

I’ve seen this post three times now and I still lose my shit.
I don’t want to go down with my ship. I want my ship to go down on each other.
I am a pretty patient person but if there is one thing I will lose my shit over almost instantly it’s my computer/internet being slow my tolerance level is exactly 0 for that shit man I did my time in the 90’s/2000’s I don’t need any of this garbage
"I did my time" damn straight
She’s laughing because she’s thinking “lol same”
'Cause Savannah was all like “OMG! We need Marti to win! MartiMartiMartiMarti. Hey Marti! Be my friend Marti! Positive outcomes only Marti!”
And Marti was like “OMG! This chick is crazy! Opps. Looks like we’re best friends now!”
And then it got ruined by boys and the show got cancelled.
