    Summary

    After Jack, even the weight of the hockey world’s combined expectations felt like something to brace against. Steadying. When he told Kelly that he’ll be fine, a month into his first regular season, she believed him. He doesn’t know why she cried, but she believed him.

    Summary

    When Jack says, “I was alone,” Kent doesn’t talk about the times he carried Jack back to bed and made sure he was on his side so he wouldn’t choke on his own vomit in the night. He says, “I’m glad you’re clean.”

    Summary

    He looks at Kent and feels nothing, if nothing feels like a shattered rib cage, all the protection around his heart gone. Kent is right in front of him, his hair falling into his face and his hands clenched in the sheets, but if Jack closes his eyes, Kent could be anywhere.

    (or, Jack and Kent can’t keep their bond if they both want to play in the NHL.)

    Summary

    Cursey looks at Kit and thinks, for the hundredth time, I want to kiss him. He doesn’t; he needs friends, not a boyfriend. But in this light, between these trees, in the silence and so far from campus, it’s harder to remember that than it should be.

    “What would you have me be?” Loki asks him. “Would you have me pretend this time is like the others? That time has meaning, if only to soothe you? Take heart. You always learn, even if you’re never grateful.”

    Summary

    Loki doesn’t cross his fingers when he’s typing. That’s how he wrote his bestsellers; he purged Tony’s influence over and over, steady like the seasons, like an exposed nerve on the cusp of too much stimulation, while Tony raged and changed the world around them.
