    Summary

    “No, it's just… I dunno, Michelle and I don't really do… dates, I guess,” he explains, shrugging. Tony's eyebrows furrow.

    “You don't go on dates,” he repeats. “With your girlfriend. And you're sure you're dating this girl?”

    He's pretty sure. “We went to a party together once,” he offers.

    “You don't think that's a little weird?” Tony asks.

    Well… Yeah, it's weird, unconventional, but Michelle is weird and he loves her.

    ***

    5 times Peter and Michelle don't go on a date and one time they do.

    Summary

    “Okay,” Zach says, slow. “You said- no food, isn’t the wedding in-”
    “Five days,” Auston finishes, “yeah.” He sounds even more calm than usual, a little monotone, actually, which is how Zach knows he’s internally losing his shit.

    Summary

    “Rude,” Mitch complains. “What’s your Gift, anyway? Were you gonna sprout wings or something if I got that necklace off?”

    Auston’s jaw drops a little. “You’re rude,” he corrects. “You can’t just ask that.”

    “Is it embarrassing?” Mitch says, unaffected.

    “It’s none of your business,” Auston says, firm.

    Summary

    Matt knows who Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews are. He’s talked to them, he’s held conversations with them. They’re nice -- Auston is more of a class clown than Matt would have thought, and Mitch has no sense of personal space.

    He just can’t relate to them.

    He thinks back to the locker room where Leo Komarov singled him out and asked to see his birth certificate because there was no way he was 19. The guys had laughed, and so had Matt. But it rings differently in his head now, when he’s out with all of them.

    OR

    Matt Martin is a 19 year old rookie for the leafs in the 2016-17 Season
