    Summary

    In the weeks after the Stanley Cup, many things went unsaid.

    “I don’t want to comment on Jack Zimmermann’s private life,” Kent practiced into the mirror. He shook his head. “I’m not able to—I’m not the one who—fuck.”

    “I didn’t want to keep y’all waiting for so long, so to make it up, I’ve come up with two new—no, no…” Bitty closed his eyes, took a breath, and put on his best smile for his camera. “Y’all probably already figured out I’ve turned off the comments for now—hah.”

    “I don’t remember,” Jack said when he meant he couldn’t find the right words. It was close enough. What did it matter? It was a different him, back when they called him Zimms.

    Summary

    Back in Montreal, not long before the draft, Jack had died. But only for a bit.

    The witch he'd met there had very kindly saved his life, so he was inclined to forgive him any small oversight. For instance, the lack of instruction manual or, perhaps, the fact that he'd neglected to mention Jack's new psychic powers.

    So he kept his head down. Played hockey. Tried to navigate old friends and new teammates. And, occasionally, he'd have to go and stop a death he'd seen coming like he was some sort of conscientious banshee. What he absolutely didn't want to do was to solve any mysteries or delve any deeper into the whole magic... thing.

    Summary

    One would think that having the name of one's soulmate appear on one's wrist on one's sixteenth birthday would make matrimony much less complicated. It mostly does not. And not at all for Miss Elizabeth Bennet of Longbourne.

    (A deconstruction of the "soulmate identifying mark" trope, using "Pride and Prejudice." Trigger warnings in the tags.)

    Summary

    Enjolras presses his lips together. He already looks pained, and Grantaire hasn't even opened his mouth yet. That's got to be a record, even for them.

    "I need a favor," he says at last.

    "With what?" says Grantaire. "Ooh, are you forming a cult? Can I join? I'd be awesome at cults, I just know it." He ticks off his qualifications on his fingers. "I love chanting, I look great in robes—"

    (High school AU. Grantaire the disaffected stoner is pulled into a cause bigger than himself. Or: in which there are pretend boyfriends for great justice.)

    The first Zhenya heard about it was an email from Sidney in the middle of August.
