    Summary

    “So… you want to kiss other people?” Jack asks, before he’s really thought about what the words mean.
    Bitty looks at him so hard, like his gaze is trying to pierce through him. “I guess… yeah. I do.”
    Bitty’s admission hangs over the table.
    “Oh.”
    Jack feels like he’s floating in midair, in the long stillness before he starts to fall.
    “Jack?”
    Suddenly, everything slots into place. Oh god.
    “You’re leaving me.”
    Or, what happens when Bitty needs time and doesn’t ask Jack to wait.

    And Jack doesn’t.

    Summary

    Bitty was the first openly gay NCAA men's hockey captain. He's out and starting life with Jack after dating for over two years. But, as far as the public knows, Jack is just letting his old liney room with him. Jack's agent is determined to keep their relationship in the closet. She suggests that Jack "date" someone of her choosing for the press. Her manipulations of Jack's anxiety go deep and cause a severe rift in Bitty and Jack's relationship. Bitty realizes what he has sacrificed and how much of his life isn't his own.

    I have tried desperately to demonstrate how complex their situation is and all the mitigating circumstances. This starts with an external force cruelly using her knowledge of Jack's anxiety and manipulating him. But, the fallout is everything else. Relationships are complicated. It's never just one thing.
