    Summary

    The first time Sidney Crosby visited his soulmate, he was five years old and it was raining in Cole Harbor. In Ontario, it was sunny and there was a boy whose smile was as bright and warm as the sun above them.

    The first time Nicklas Backstrom visited his soulmate, he was two months shy of five years old and he was sitting on the porch steps. In Russia, a boy ran up eight flights of stairs and didn't hesitate to start a conversation with the blonde boy he found sitting on them.

    Summary

    Nicky's first text was a simple and incredibly vague, I'm turning my phone off to give things time to settle down.

    Immediately following it was a second, cautionary, message reading, Don't do anything stupid. I'll call you soon to talk about it.

     

    Or: The Stars make a trade with the Capitals instead of the Blackhawks. Alex does what he needs to to make sure he stays with Nicklas.

    Summary

    “We're bonded,” Nicky says, surprising himself as much as he's surprised Bradley.

    “Oh,” Bradley says, eyes wide. “That - makes sense actually.”

    Nicky blinks owlishly in surprise. “It does?”

    It shouldn't make sense, not when Nicky and Mike are definitely not bonded, but here they are, Bradley nodding like it's the most reasonable thing he's ever heard.

    “I mean, I thought you and Ovi were at first, but you and Greenie are always together and just,” he shrugs. “Like I have a best friend too, Backy, but I wouldn't pay five hundred bucks to room with him, especially not if I was still on ELC.”

    --

    In which Nicky and Greenie pretend to be soul bonded so they can be road roommates.

    Summary

    They were running the kiss-cam during the intermission and it was focused on the area between the two benches. Sidney was standing at the end of the bench, close enough that he could be framed in the heart with Claude who was at the end of the Flyer's bench.

    The Penguins and Flyers staff had stood behind them, they'd had statements and plans for this since the day after their first date, even as the media took up arms, but he hadn't been expecting something like this.
    ______________
    He watched as the camera flipped through a few more couples before he found himself staring at himself in the heart. He and Jamie were framed in it together. The camera had been focused in a way that managed to get Jamie in it, but not Jordie.

    Tyler flicked a glance over at Jamie, but the Captain was so focused on whatever he was discussing with his brother that he had no idea what was going on. Realizing that Jamie wasn't paying attention had a sly, mischievous smile spreading across Tyler's lips.
    ________________
    Alex glanced over his shoulder, looking up so he could see the screen Nicky was looking at.

    The two of them were displayed on the screen, framed by the hot pink heart that indicated the kisscam.

    Summary

    “What about Brooksy?” Andre asks quietly. Nicky’s fingers still on the back of Andre’s head, and then start petting over his curls again a second later.

    “He has a reputation,” Nicky says carefully.

    Or: Andre tries, and then tries again.

    Summary

    “Think the storm did it,” Sasha tells the kids over lunch the next day. Andre got last place in their morning skate shootout contest, so he’s paying.

    “Did what?” Willy says through a mouthful of sushi.

    Sasha points at him with his chopsticks. “Your powers,” he says. “Snowzilla comes, suddenly everyone’s mutants? Something happened there, no other explanation.”

    Latts strokes his chin. “Didn’t the Flash get struck by lightning or something? It’s not totally crazy.”

    Summary

    Zhenya jolted out of his bed, the same feeling you have when you’re asleep and you feel like falling.

    He just lied there, not moving, almost afraid of doing so.

    There wasn’t a movie that had a similar plot?

    Summary

    Sometimes Nicky wonders, usually in moments like these, if there is something to it, if you need Canadians and the horrible things they chose to do to themselves as children to win it all. Maybe Don Cherry is right, at the end of the day, maybe you just can’t win without demonic assistance. Without sacrifice, as that insufferable spray tanned corpse always puts it.

    Summary

    "Hey," Nicky says on the other end, voice just as soft and fond. Mike looks at his watch and knows it's just past one in the morning in DC. "Congrats on the hatty."

    "You were watching?" He asks, and Nicky says of course like there's no other answer to give. He says it now the way he said it a year ago when Mike scored his first goal in Detroit and Nicky called just the same.

    "Thanks," He says, and then, "I'm glad you were watching."

    Summary

    Nicky can see him lean forward at the edge of his vision. “I won’t be your experiment,” he makes himself say, still without looking up.

    So he misses Alex's frown until Alex reaches over and makes him look up. "Why you act so scared?” He demands. "I the one who doesn't know what I'm doing.”

    Nicky yanks himself back and away, almost hard enough to tip his chair. “You don't know why I'm scared my very Russian friend and teammate is suddenly asking questions about me dating men?” He snaps.

    Summary

    With Geno solid against him, Nicky won’t remember how easy it was to fall in love with Alex Ovechkin, but he’ll remember wondering if it’s actually just him that’s too quick to fall in love.

    Summary

    “Why’d Holtby decide to leave that office? It has a window. He loved that office,” Nicky comments absentmindedly as he packs his laptop into his bag, classes finally over.

    “I may have bribe. Give him some information he had been looking for. Office was small price to pay.” The satisfaction is evident on Sasha’s face as he plays with the pens on Nicky’s desk, clicking them incessantly.

    “Why’d you want it?”

    “Easy way to come annoy you every day between class," Sasha replies, tongue-in-cheek, but his smile is genuine.

    A story of mutants, misguided decisions, and love.

    Summary

    "I want to see DC,” Hank says, “and I don’t particularly feel like taking a bus.”

    Nicky rolls his eyes. “I’ve seen everything in DC enough times to last me a lifetime,” he says. “It’s not that exciting. Everything looks just like it does in the pictures - worse even because there’s always construction everywhere.”

    “That’s not what I meant,” Hank says, kicking out at Nicky’s legs softly. “I’ve seen all that - the monuments and museums. I want to see DC the way that you see it. Your favorite places, places you like to go.”

    --

    Or Nicky and Hank spend a day together in DC before Sweden's game against Europe.

    Summary

    "Your captain's here," Lindholm said, gesturing his head towards the stands. Nicklas found that no matter how much time he spent on Team Sweden, it was still odd to listen to someone speaking Swedish on the ice. He was too used to the English exchanged around the Verizon center when he was with the Capitals.

    Nicklas glanced over in the direction that Lindholm had indicated to find Alex sitting in the stands in one of his bright red Team Russia sweatshirts.

    Summary

    Mike's got a crush on this guy who picks up print orders for a marketing company. Tom's got a crush on this guy who picks up coffee for eight people every work day. André would complain about running all the errands for his office, but -- well, I think you get the picture.

    Summary

    “You can’t be picked if you’re married," Nicky says, like it's obvious.

    “I’m not married,” Alex replies.

    “You’re marrying me,” Nicky says, his jaw set.

    “You haven’t proposed."

    Summary

    Berlin isn’t home to Nicky, but it’s close enough for the time being. He arrives after a haphazard stint at university with a record contract that he got through a friend of a friend. Sort of. In that he sort of made an EP. That’s what the label is calling it. He isn’t sure it’s anything more than a mix tape he made for an ex.

    Summary

    Apparently the trick to maintaining a friendship despite constant bouts of lycanthropy and unexpected sexual hijinks is to have so much other shit going on in life, that it's difficult to get hung up any one thing.
