    Summary

    Time stops. There's no sound, not even the blood that should be rushing in his ears. The Earth stops turning. The stars go dark. For a split second Eric knows what it's like to simply cease existing, to be sucked into a vacuum of silence. And then just as suddenly everything kicks back into gear, like a paused video returning to normal time. Eric can hear the beeps of the registers and the PA system announcing a special on croissants. They're probably not as good as mine, he thinks. He doesn't know why he thinks that, not right now. Not when-

    "What happened?"

    --

    A week in the life of a death.

    Summary

    Suzanne knows where to find the answers.

    The answers lie in their church sermons and their distaste. They lie in hushed whispers and disgusted slurs. They lie in Georgia and its refusal to change where it matters when so much of the country has. They lie in all the words and actions her son had suffered.

    The answers lie inside themselves: Rick’s insistence of a better pasttime for Eric, her concern, their expectations. Her denial, if not for her son and his interests, then for his suffering and the words he yearned to tell her.

    Sweetheart, tell me what? You know Jack’s gonna be busy this summer no matter which way these games go. Staying with a friend for that long. That’s a lot to put on him.

    Mama. No. No. Jack. Jack’s… He’s my— I—

    Suzanne wonders if Eric also calls Jack sweetpea.

    Summary

    I have a lot of feelings about episode 3.23. My heart is breaking for all of them, but I can’t imagine Suzanne being anything but supportive. She loves her son and Jack. Here’s a ficlet with my HC of what happened at the other end of the line when Bitty hung up.

    Summary

    Suzanne places her mug back on the table.

    - Jack, sweetheart, we need to talk to you.

    Coach takes a sip of coffee and sits back straight.

    - …Alright? says Jack.

    - We’ve seen the way you look at Junior, says Coach in a matter-of-fact voice.

    Summary

    So Jack's not a master at this whole "understanding his feelings" thing . . . or "expressing his feelings" idea . . . or "feelings" in general, for that matter. Jack is, however, smart enough to know that his first reaction upon meeting Bittle's boyfriend shouldn't be wanting to cave the guy's face in.

    (He doesn't, of course, but that's a completely different story.)

    Or: Jack doesn't join the NHL after graduation, he doesn't kiss Bittle, and he definitely doesn't notice his feelings for him. This is the mess that follows.

    Summary

    Jack didn’t know what to say.

    How could he know?

    He didn’t know now, as Kent’s fist made contact with his jaw, as narrow eyes watched him from behind the penalty box glass. As Eric’s fingers pressed to his mouth.
