Do You Know What It’s Like?, also known as the high school AU, is an Andrew/Jesse chaptered fic.
Jesse (along with best friend Emma Stone and ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake) go to East High, while Andrew (with girlfriend Carey Mulligan and best friend Armie Hammer) go to West High. East and West have been rivals for years, so the drama teachers of both schools (Lisa Kudrow and Courtney Cox, who are also in a relationship) bring them together to put on a show - the off-Broadway semi-hit, Zanna, Don’t!
As soon as Andrew and Jesse meet, there’s something there and everyone knows it. But it’s not that easy - if it were, there’d be no fic. They have to battle Andrew’s inability to admit his own sexuality and his reluctance to break Carey’s heart, plus Jesse really needs to find some balls. They’re around somewhere, he’s sure of it.
Featuring a whole range of side-pairings (including Joe Mazzello/Mackenzie) and a multitude of cameos, DYKWIL is expected to be around ten parts excluding epilogue and switches between Andrew and Jesse’s POVs.
