    Summary

    This fic follows two similar timelines from Eric Bittle's childhood: the past where he meets his best friend Drew, grows apart from his father the football coach, and experiences the repercussions of being a young gay boy in the South; and the present where he finds new friends and falls in love with Jack Zimmermann, star quarterback of Coach's new high school team.

    Over six years Eric is faced with several difficult life lessons, but there is also joy, laughter, love, and self-discovery. More than anything Eric learns that sometimes in life, you really can only get better with time.

    Summary

    or, how to find yourself (and a minor obsession) at the end of six months in europe

     

     

    “Were you anywhere before Athens?” Jack asks after a while, and though it’s a standard question for people met in backpackers’ hostels – where have you been? Where are you going? – Eric still hears it more genuinely than those who’ve asked him previously. Almost like Jack is actually interested.


    In which Eric Bittle absconds from Georgia with half a year of hard-earned savings, and makes the most of his six months before starting college living a backpacker’s dream in Europe.

    On the final night of his travels, the night before a giant reality check and with the threat of a future looming over him, he meets a fellow traveler.

    There is etiquette, for sure, about hooking up in a hostel dorm.
