As Chase Arthur, a budding animator and hopeless romantic obsessed with Disney love stories, begins his freshman year at a competitive arts college, he struggles with body image issues, gender identity, and his ex-best friend-turned rival, Leila. But when he falls for Jack Reid, a brooding poet still discovering his sexual identity, Chase will have to get creative to find his own happily ever after. AND THEY LIVED… is a sex-positive fairytale-inspired celebration of queer, first love and self-acceptance for fans of Kacen Callenderโ€™s FELIX EVER AFTER, Becky Albertalli & Adam Silveraโ€™s WHAT IF ITโ€™S US, & Casey McQuistonโ€™s RED, WHITE & ROYAL BLUE.
