    Summary

    This fic follows two similar timelines from Eric Bittle's childhood: the past where he meets his best friend Drew, grows apart from his father the football coach, and experiences the repercussions of being a young gay boy in the South; and the present where he finds new friends and falls in love with Jack Zimmermann, star quarterback of Coach's new high school team.

    Over six years Eric is faced with several difficult life lessons, but there is also joy, laughter, love, and self-discovery. More than anything Eric learns that sometimes in life, you really can only get better with time.

     

    This fic is completely written. Posting will occur Mondays and Thursdays are updates are made.

    Summary

    New Earth was suppose to be a fresh start for humans and it was until a deadly, ancient creature came out of a century long hibernation to attack the colonists. Their only hope was the formation of winged soldiers who patrolled the sky, defending the inhabitants of the colony. Eric Bittle dreamed that someday he could join their ranks and protect his people.

    Summary

    “Your father has sent me a message, you know,” King Bittle mused, pacing in front of Jack, who was held down by two guards even though he wasn't struggling. “He knows the ancient laws of all our lands, and he knows that your surrender means he has lost the war. He asks only that I send you back to him. I told him that he knows that your surrender means you belong to me now, body, mind, and soul. I own you now, and I am not going to send you back to your kingdom.” The king stopped in front of Jack and crouched down, grabbing his chin roughly and making him look into his eyes.

    “My son Eric is going to come of age soon. It will be a grand ceremony, and you would be the perfect present for him."

    PLEASE READ THE TAGS. THIS IS GOING TO BE A VERY DARK STORY.

    Summary

    Eric had been looking forward to Camp Ichthys for weeks. How is he supposed to convince his mama that he doesn't want to go to church camp ever again?
    or
    In which the author draws heavily from her final church camp experience and projects a lot of religious insecurity on our favorite closeted Southern Baptist.

    Summary

    Suzanne Bittle never thought her life would end up this way. She never thought she'd live for over twenty years in the closet. She never thought she and her son would have so much in common. She never thought she'd get divorced. She never thought she'd move away from Georgia and definitely never thought she'd move to New England.

    She never thought she'd fall in love again.

    Summary

    Bitty is a southern man, and therefore he knows guns. And, as it turns out, Bitty can SHOOT. His accuracy is incredible enough to almost make his daddy cry, and *almost* enough to make up for all the rest of the things that fuel his childhood bullies' aggressions.

    But only almost.

    And so he chooses a northern college, far from home - rural enough to feel familiar, but liberal enough that he doesn’t have to be so afraid anymore. Going to the woods on the weekends with the rifle he keeps in storage, shooting for targets until his fingers are numb, helps him with the lingering homesickness.

    He didn’t expect to be seen. He never expected to have his name shoved in front of the school biathlon coach, who has his hands full of great skiers but not so many crack-shots.

    His folks hadn’t been sure about sending their boy into Yankee territory, but when they hear he could get his degree for free just for firing a gun? They’re on board. But Bitty’s not sure about this whole skiing thing, especially when the team captain is scowling at him harder every time he falls.

    Summary

    “Coulda been a contender,” Eric said once, drunk on exhaustion and the feel of the state championship award banging against his legs under the dash. It was 2 AM and he’d just qualified for Southern Regionals; it felt like he could say anything, even to his father.

    Summary

    Fresh out of college hockey and signed onto a pro team, Bitty felt lost. He was still in shock that an actual team wanted him even after the months of practice and weeks after the regular season started. He was too focused on proving himself, showing that whatever bit of talent and promise they had seen in him when they signed him was worth the investment, to pay much attention to a rivalry that had started years ago. He didn't even know it existed until the game actually started.

    Summary

    “I think we should throw a ball,” She suggests to her husband one night as they are preparing for bed. Richard looks at her and raises an eyebrow, a cue to go on from the softspoken man. “We can invite all of the eligible young suitors to it, and allow Eric to have his pick from the fine young men. Perhaps then he will agree to a marriage.”

    When she proposes this to Eric, he agrees to it, saying that he does not care what his husband will look like, that he will marry whichever young man shall dance with him and not fall, shall speak with him and know him well, and who shall present him with a gift that can never be tarnished or broken.
