"You don't get to tell me what to do! "
Tristan and Vijay met at the begining of the new school year. Vijay had a crush on Tristan right away, and Tristan asked him out to try to get over Miles. Though the two had much in common, Vijay angrily ended their relationship when he realized that he was being used as a rebound. Later, Vijay is provoked further when Tristan sends him an annonymous E-mail informing him that he might have contracted an STD from their encounter.
In #YesMeansYes, when Tristan tells Vijay, Hunter, Baaz and Yael that the gamer club has been approved, Vijay blurts out that he voted for Tristan in the student body president election, implying his crush.
In #NotOkay, Tristan sees that Vijay is interested in him, and asks him out on a date. They go out to The Dot, and Vijay asks if he is interested in video games, to which Tristan says no. Tristan apologizes for being bad at dating because his last relationship ended badly, and they both comment how hard it is to find a decent gay at school. Vijay calls Miles an idiot, and reveals he's friends with Miles's younger brother, Hunter. Vijay calls Tristan amazing, saying he broke out in song after Tristan asked him out, and Tristan realizes they both have musical theater in common.
Tristan later tells Zoë that he and Vijay made out after their date, and says he reminds himself of when he was younger, but Vijay hadn't messaged him yet that day. They find his message on OomfChat, and Vijay thanked him for a great night, saying they should go out again. Before their second date at Lola's Cantina, Tristan runs into Miles and tells him that he is dating someone new. Miles laughs when he learns it is his brother's friend, and jokes that Tristan is "robbing the cradle". After Miles sits down, Tristan gives Vijay a flower. On the date, Vijay talks about his gaming, but Tristan is distracted by Miles on his date with Esme. Tristan realizes he isn't over Miles and breaks it off with Vijay. Vijay realizes this, and angrily tells him they could have been the next power couple, but Tristan was thinking too much with his penis. Tristan tries to apologize, but Vijay claims he is breaking up with him instead, changing their relationship status online, and walks out.
In #TeamFollowBack, Tristan is worried that he may have chlamydia, and he sends an anonymous email to everyone who he has been with this semester. Vijay later bursts into the student council meeting, asking how Tristan could do this to him. Tristan asks how Vijay knew it was from him, and Vijay reveals Tristan is the only guy he has ever messed around with before. Tristan tells him to calm down, and that it is "just chlamydia". Vijay is horrified by Tristan's reaction and storms off.
