    Summary

    He knew it would be hard, his father had warned him. Michael warns him, his mother and even Federov pulled him aside. He knew but even his last year in Sweden when the league had been flooded with NHL players during the lockout, it hadn't been like this.

    There hadn't been Alex.

    Nicky was young and had never met someone who made him feel so warm.

    Summary

    They break the kiss for a second, Alex wants to look and Mike doesn't disappoint. His lips are red and swollen and there's a needy glint in his eyes. Alex smirks and pulls him down again. He wonders if they can just keep going like this, if Nicky will get off just watching them make out.

    Summary

    He doesn’t expect to feel as stretched as he does. The Olympics weren’t this bad though maybe that’s because they were relatively close together throughout it. Not like this. At least Nicky gets to be in Washington. Alex stares down at the locker room floor, knowing that underneath the Russian eagle is the Pittsburgh penguin.

    He’s played in a lot of arenas over the years, but there’s something about being here right now that makes his skin crawl. Maybe because Nicky is so far away.

    Summary

    He and Nicky end up back in his apartment after lunch. He opens up the balcony door with a happy sigh. He had purposefully chosen a unit that would get a lot of afternoon light. Nicky curls up now like a cat on one of the chairs set outside.

    “He's not doing well,” Andre says without preamble, dropping into the other chair. He drops his head into his hands.

    “You can't fix everything,” Nicky says.

    “But-”

    “And what happens next?”

    Summary

    Nicky can see him lean forward at the edge of his vision. “I won’t be your experiment,” he makes himself say, still without looking up.

    So he misses Alex's frown until Alex reaches over and makes him look up. "Why you act so scared?” He demands. "I the one who doesn't know what I'm doing.”

    Nicky yanks himself back and away, almost hard enough to tip his chair. “You don't know why I'm scared my very Russian friend and teammate is suddenly asking questions about me dating men?” He snaps.

    Summary

    It's of course impossible for Nicky to actually be using magic out on the ice. It's all warded and every surface treated with every material known to block magic. Even Alex can't manage to get around all the blocks, no matter how everyone seems convinced he somehow cheats.

    So he knows it's not magic as Nicky somehow finds him with a perfect pass through a crowd.

    He knows that but it still doesn't seem possible.

    Summary

    It’s too sudden to process anything but hurt and a deep seated ache. The same pain is reflected back at him from every other guy on the team. In some ways, it’s a relief to see everyone hurting the same.

    It’s not just in his head.

    Summary

    It feels like a bad cliche, sitting up in the middle of the night, his partner’s arm heavy over his stomach but unable to sleep. They're far enough removed from any roads the ceiling stays the same solid grey. Giving him nothing to focus on to distract himself from the way his head echoes.

    Summary

    Jeff shifts nervously from foot to foot, he knows this is silly. It's just Mike. It's just Mike after therapy and a year of the Monarchs and legal trouble and the Caps and Jeff not able to be there for him like he should have been.

    He sucks in a breath and rings the doorbell.

    Summary

    “What is wrong, pup?” He asks again, wishing desperately that he could actually get an answer. Instead he settles for holding his hand out, palm up until Nicky takes the hesitant step forward to nuzzle against him.

    Summary

    Trevelyan collapses to his knees as he falls through the portal, unable to even lift his head to see if Dorian is with him or if they’ve come through at the right place and time. There are voices around them, voices yelling but he’s grown used to drowning those out. Letting whatever curses and atrocities they want to throw at him simply wash over him.

    His hand is screaming in pain, he can feel every single thread of magic in the room like they’re wound tightly around his flesh and tightening like wire.

    Summary

    Alex twists the ring around his finger as he watches Nick pace. He consented, everyone did, but in the privacy of their room, he seems much more on edge now about it.

    “Nicky,” he finally whines, sick of watching. Despite all his pacing, Nicky’s face is blank and Alex has no idea what he’s thinking.

    Nicky spins to face him. “I don’t want this.”

    Summary

    “Locker room,” he hisses.

    Nicky spares him an annoyed glance, or Alex thinks he’s annoyed. It’s hard to tell exactly what is causing the furrow in his brow. “I’m fine.”

    “Too bright, too loud,” Alex insists. Usually no one bothers with them whispering to each other but maybe people are noticing this isn’t a friendly chat. “We win, we ok. You go.”

    Summary

    He wishes Dante weren’t so far away. It’s not like Chicago, but it’s the other side of Texas so might as well be just as far. They had only just got used to the idea of doing more than kissing when it was time for another summer to end.

    Summary

    Poe stumbles to his feet, almost too quick and his vision goes fuzzy. He presses a hand to a wall to hold himself up until his vision clears. “Let me out!” He yells, pushing himself to the door, slamming his hand against the blank metal. It leaves a faint smear of blood.

    Nothing else changes.

    Summary

    “Dameron.” He takes the hand Poe offers climbing back up to the hall. Poe’s fingers are immediately on him.

    “Let me,” he murmurs.

    Finn nods mutely. He’s tired of denying it doesn’t matter that he’s in this armor again.

    Summary

    That gets Finn’s attention. His fingers pause in their practiced movements and for a second he looks like he’s going to bolt but then his shoulders ease and he goes back to his work. “Gotta get used to that,” he mumbles.

    “To what?” Poe can’t resist asking, leaning a little bit closer.

    A nervous smile twists Finn’s lips. “Attention. Growing up...It wasn’t a good thing.”

    Summary

    The sheets bunch around his hips, somehow kicked down there while they were sleeping. Olivier leans in the doorway, watching Aaron sleep, stretched out in his bed. He’s tanned from training in the sun but now it’s truly the off season and Olivier has him just for himself.

    Summary

    "Perhaps you should consider why someone would be looking forward to this trip."

    She stares hard at him, completely at a loss. Uncle Sandalio is completely a city person, he has never mentioned living anywhere else and delights in the season and dressing properly. None of which Rue is sure happens in Scotland.

    "And as the one who might one day replace your father, I can learn from those like Lady Sidhaeg." He goes back to his cards, marking the subject closed. It’s not an answer though so Rue sits back, ready to come up with another way to find out why they’re here.

    Summary

    "It's ok to admit you can't get enough of me."

    "I hate you."

    Olivier laughs. "No, who would kiss you?"
