    Summary

    “This is your first Match?” The thought makes Jack’s stomach flop over uncomfortably.
    Eric hums, wrinkling his nose. “My birthday was yesterday. I wasn’t expecting a date this quickly, but I suppose it’s good to get things rolling.”

    Jack could say, This is my thirty-fifth Match. Jack could say, My first Match was my longest. Jack could even say, Imagine if you got your Life Partner on your first go.

    What he says instead, through a smirk, is, “We should sit down. It’s good to get things rolling, eh?”

    Summary

    The spare key is under the mat, just like Poots said it would be. Hefting his carefully-curated care package under one arm, Jack wrestles with the key in the lock before tucking it safely back into its hiding spot. He shuts the door quickly behind himself, and is toeing out of his shoes when a voice echoes out from somewhere.

    “Sweetheart, you’re home!”


    Jack Zimmermann is an established hockey player. He’s three years in to his NHL career, has had the A for the Falconers for two and a half, and is ready to make winners out of the new group of rookies. He pulls one under his wing, affectionately nicknamed Poots, and it should all go as planned. But say Jack accidentally discovers that Poots has a boyfriend. And say that Poots wasn’t a very good boyfriend. And say, for arguments’ sake, Poots’ boyfriend definitely deserved better.

    Jack is maybe, possibly, totally fucked.

    Summary

    Kravitz does not, as a general rule, grieve. Grief is for the living, and he has not been that in a very long time.

    What he's feeling, he thinks, must just be empathy for the grief of his living friends. There's no other explanation.

    Summary

    Lup sprawled out on Lucretia’s bed and sighed. “I can’t believe you’re in love with that man.”

    “I’m not. I never said it.”

    “Oh, Lu.” Lup rolled over and looked at her. “You never had to.”

    or: Lucretia's father hires local craftsman Magnus Burnsides to paint their family portrait, and his presence turns her life completely upside down.
