    A bafflingly long-winded, cosy domestic world of fluff! In this universe, MCR never existed. Gerard threw himself into art instead of music after 9/11, Frank owns an indie record label, and Ray is a studio musician.

  3. Summary

    From just having a butler and a personal hacker, Lara didn't necessarily think she would be hand-picking the elements of--well, a family. Of sorts. Naturally, not a very conventional one.

    An epic bittersweet series still in progress. The total story arc spans decades and new stories are added out of order very occasionally.

    Summary

    Patrice considered the distance on Google Maps, and he talked to his mother. Finally he called his grandmother. “Could I come out and see you and the family, one afternoon?” Of course he could, she assured him, just the slightest bit offended that he would ask. It took him longer to ask the next question. “Can I bring someone with me?”

    Summary

    Patrice has heard Brad apologize, a lot. Over the years, to coaches, to the media, to players on rival teams, to other teammates. More recently, he’s heard Brad apologize to the room, and he’s seen Brad making the rounds one-on-one: taking every single guy aside at some point, including all the newest faces, and going through the speech. Everyone except for Patrice himself.

    He’s thankful.

    Summary

    At some point, Matt Duchene began writing letters with advice to his younger self. The fun starts when his younger self begins receiving them. Are they true? Are they real? Who's sending them? And what happens if he doesn't do what they say? It's enough to give poor Dutchy a nervous breakdown, especially when they begin to get really personal.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I was reading this at 2 am because I couldn't sleep when it got really funny. I laughed until I cried, and in my heroic efforts to not wake up my bedmate, silent-laughing-with-tears turned to choking and then a coughing fit.

    That was alarming, but it was probably worth it. The premise of this story is already funny crack, but it did not adequately prepare me for the comedy to come.

    Summary

    Claude'd done some strange things on the ice before. Wiped his snot on a ref. Chewed on an opponent's jersey. But his greatest moment was saved for his most hated rival.

    He kissed Crosby.

    Summary

    When they play at Worlds together, Claude Giroux firmly expects a fight to break out. At the very least, he expects derogatory remarks and barely contained fury. Instead of doing any of those things, Sidney Crosby just stares and Claude Giroux loses his damn mind.
