    Summary

    "Double or nothing," said Webster abruptly.

    "How exactly do you mean to double 'everything I had?'" said Ash. He meant it to come out level, but there was a quaver in his voice.

    "One more trick," Webster said. "Play, and win or lose you will walk away with your fortune." Ash stared at him. Webster made an impatient gesture. "I don't want or need your money. Or your house. Or your coat and shirt, come to that."

    It was an offer of princely generosity. Ash's mouth was dry. "And what would you have from me?" he asked.

    Something flared in Webster's cool expression for a moment, like a shark flashing a fin in still waters. "A month," he said.

    Summary

    Eric has landed his dream job: social media manager for the Providence Falconers! Not only does he get paid to tweet, for an NHL team at that, but it’s a job where he’ll be able to make good use of his magic - when nobody’s looking, of course. Everyone on the Falconers is a joy to work with… with the notable exception of Jack Zimmermann. Eric understands that Jack doesn’t like social media, but he could certainly be a little more polite about it.

    Luckily, Eric has support from his Samwell buddies, as well as his best friend - a man whose face he’s never seen, and whose name he doesn’t know. They met on an online forum where witches can gather anonymously, since it isn’t safe for them to advertise their existence in a world where magic isn’t trusted. They’ve been friends for years now, but Eric is only just starting to realize that he might have deeper feelings for someone he can never meet face-to-face.

    Summary

    When the picture of him and Jack at the Toyota dealership shows up online, Bitty knows it has the potential to be bad. What if Jack gets outed? What if people think Bitty is a gold digger? What if they think Jack is his sugar daddy? And why doesn't Jack think any of this is a problem?

    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.
