    Summary

    Above him, the stars are still distant and cold, a tangible proof of the indifference of the universe. Beside him, Shiro is just out of arm’s reach, radiating warmth.

    (Or: five times Shiro and Keith looked at the stars, and one time they did more than that.)

    Summary

    The truth is: what Keith wants or doesn’t want won’t bring Shiro back.

    The truth is: nothing can breathe in space.

    (Or: the story of how Keith and Shiro come together, come apart, and come together again.)

    Summary

    “So do you guys know if there are any people playing D&D in the area?” Stony asks on the first day of camp.

    Or: if you'd told Kent in the off-season that he'd be hooking up with his rookie's hot nerd of a brother, he would've laughed. (He’d still have gone for it, though.)

    Summary

    Montreal in summer is hot as hell, the heat sticky and clinging to the skin.

    (There were the thirty-four days in the summer of 2009, between winning the Memorial Cup and the NHL Entry Draft in Montreal, where things were perfect. This is one of those days.)

    Summary

    He didn’t expect this, based on his last season—didn’t expect to be drafted in the first round; second, maybe, if he were lucky, because nobody wants damaged goods for their first pick, and he’d already proven he couldn’t handle it, when the push came to shove. It was embarrassing, the way he played his last season in the juniors, and when Océanic won the Memorial Cup, it was more in spite of Ian being on the ice than because of him.

    He certainly didn’t expect a phone call from Jack Zimmermann not even half an hour after he’d left the stage.

    (Ian Davies is drafted by the Providence Falconers in the first round. It's just a start.)

    Summary

    On the tv, Kent Parson is still smiling for the cameras. The longer Jeff looks at the smile, the more it starts to look like a grimace.

    (Kent Parson goes first overall to the Las Vegas Aces. His future teammates watch it happen.)

    Summary

    They win at home. It goes all the way to game six, and then they win in their own home arena after it goes to double overtime, and Kent gets to lift thirty-four pounds of silver into the air.

    (In the aftermath of the Aces' first Stanley Cup Championship title, Kent goes to Samwell on his Cup day.)

    Summary

    It’s almost funny. All he ever wanted was to play hockey, to play in the NHL, to win the Cup. This—Samwell, the team, the Haus—was supposed to be just a detour, but now it feels more like a destination he failed to realize he’s already reached.

    (Or: Jack signs with the Falconers, graduates, and leaves. It's the hardest thing he's ever done. What comes after is even harder.)

    Summary

    Kent has been, historically, good at this—forgetting about things until suddenly he doesn’t, and then it’s like the scar has never been there in the first place, just the wound.

    (Or: Kent Parson lets himself be happy, after all this time.)

    Summary

    In his 2009 book on Captain America comic books, war photography, and American propaganda, Everett claims: “There is nothing to suggest that either the graphic novels issued during the war or the photographs taken during Rogers’ stay with the Howling Commandos can serve as a basis for a queer reading of Rogers and Barnes’ relationship. But even more importantly, there is nothing to suggest that such a relationship ever existed in the first place, and as such, those queer readings are not only misguided, but also libelous” (197).

    [from: Lynn E. Anderson, Captain America: Behind the Mask. Steve Rogers and the Contemporary Hero Narrative (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), p. 242.]

    In the aftermath of Steve's return to the world of the living and the battle of New York, the academia and the Internet react.
