    Summary

    When Patrick Kane gets a summer internship at the Chicago Tribune, he's determined not to screw up another career. But instead of covering fashion shows for animals or becoming an agony uncle, he finds himself charged with writing an expose of the Blackhawks' new captain.

    Or, the au in which Kaner is Chris Kuc.

    Summary

    Sublimation

    1. Passing from one phase to another without transitioning through an intermediate phase.
    2. Where socially unacceptable impulses or idealizations are consciously transformed into socially acceptable actions or behavior, possibly resulting in a long-term conversion of the initial impulse.

    Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews should probably have figured out the first time what this type of behavior meant.

    Summary

    If someone had told Stiles back in high school that he would be an Oscar winning actor by the time he turned 25, he would’ve probably told Scott to punch them. The thing is, though…they would’ve been right.

    Which makes returning to Beacon Hills, center of all that is supernatural and better left avoided, all the more awkward.

    Summary

    Corey Crawford didn’t have a cup hangover. Probably because he didn’t win a Stanley Cup. What he is having, however, is what he might call a sophomore slump. Arguably. If pressed.

    Summary

    The Hawks retire Jonny’s jersey at the home opener of the 2016 season, against the Jets. The Madhouse is completely, uncharacteristically silent as number 19 rises, the bold white C catching on the arena lights. Pat watches as stoically as he can, fingering the edges of the letter on his own sweater. 

     

    Sharpy cries. Shawzy sobs like an infant. Duncs helps him off the ice after, his own eyes suspiciously damp. Pat reminds himself that he’s their captain now and he has to keep it together, even though he’s never felt more like falling apart.

     

    After a career-ending injury, Jonny goes missing and is presumed dead. Pat is left trying to fill his shoes, trying to forget the last thing he ever said to Jonny, trying to move on.

    Then he gets a phone call.
