    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

    “Yeah, yeah, I know. Just a snack.” Wally waves down the waitress, taking a menu eagerly. “Hey, Mavis. I’ll take a Rueben, a grilled cheese, turkey club, three slices of apple pie, and a coffee.”

    Bats clears his throat.

    “Uh. Decaf coffee.”

    Summary

    “My true love will have hair the color of yellow apples,” and Jack Zimmermann will take a bite from the forbidden fruit, juice running down his chin. “My true love will be exactly five feet and six-and-a-half inches tall,” and he will chew a leaf from a tree of that same height. “My true love will be as sweet as sugar and sharp as lemon,” and he will drink half a glass of Great-Aunt Cathy’s lemonade, waiting until the last dregs of sugar hit his tongue. “And if a single one of these things is not to be, then let it be known—my true love shall not be he.”

    (He knows in his bones that this spell won't ever come true. After all, his true love isn't real, and if he's not real, then the curse can't take him. That's the whole point.)

    ---

    Or, a Practical Magic AU. Wherein Jack Zimmermann must deal with family curses, hockey legacies, accidental manslaughter, Kent Parson's obstinate death wish, and a snarky Southern kitchen warlock who won't mind his own damn business.

    Summary

    Stiles got ratted out by the Realm Guard for sneaking off with Scott a total of seven times before his dad buckled, promising sabbatical once Stiles reached Faehood, and enough Earth culture in the meantime to have him talking like a born-and-bred Californian teenager.

    He just didn’t have the tan.

    (Or, in which Stiles is a Frost Fae sent to the Earth Realm on the Fae version of Rumspringa and immediately falls head-first into a Coffee Shop AU)
