    Summary

    Bitty meets Jack on a Saturday morning at approximately the asscrack of dawn about a month after he officially adopts Therese. He knows who he is, of course, was heartbroken when the Falconers were knocked out of the playoffs in the second round.

    Any other day, he would be shocked and excited. Today, however, he’s too tired to really care who walks into the shop. All he cares about is the fact that Therese is still fussing and it’s seven in the morning and he still hasn’t had any coffee. “I’ll be right with you, just give me a minute to get this little princess calm.”

    And apparently Jack Zimmermann is some sort of Disney prince, because he responds with, “Do you want any help? You look exhausted and I’m pretty good with kids?”

    Summary

    It's not until he's sprawled on his back in the beginning of the second period, dazed and staring up in search of anything he can focus on to get the rink to stop spinning around him, that he actually looks at the stands.

    So it's surreal when he looks now and his eyes focus on a single face. One that resolves into someone achingly familiar amidst the crush of shouting fans and players starting a fight around him, lit bright and golden from the light reflecting off the ice.

    Someone he-

    He has his hands over his mouth, his body frozen stiff and his dark eyes so wide as he stares back at Jack, so frightened-looking and for a moment Jack has the strangest rush of protectiveness, of a need to check whatever it is that's upsetting Bittle… a man he hasn't seen or heard from in years - until he realizes that Jack's blood on the ice is probably the thing that's upsetting.

    Summary

    Simon figured the Pitches didn’t exactly encourage being open and honest about feelings. Unsurprising, but a little sad. Baz always acted aloof, as though nothing got to him, except with Simon. Simon could always get to Baz.

    (When Simon can’t take out his frustration on Baz by fighting him in their room because of the anathema, he resorts to more... unconventional methods).

    Summary

    It’s hard to keep your head above water working too many hours at the hospital with not enough sleep, but man, are they going to try.

    Erwin Smith is the star neurosurgeon tipped to be the next Chief of Surgery, and Levi -- fresh out of the US Army and one of the best trauma surgeons in the country -- is determined to ignore Doctor Handsome and maybe knock him down a few pegs. Jean Kirschtein is the head of pediatric surgery, but no matter how talented he is, he can’t stop getting too attached to the kids he’s trying to save. His fiancé is Marco Bodt, the most popular physical therapist in the hospital who knows more than he should about almost everyone in the place. That includes Reiner Braun, the soldier and kick-ass orthopedic surgeon who accepts a job just to be near Doctor Bert Hoover -- but is determined to keep his secrets to himself.

    They weave through each other’s lives as days and nights go by, balancing personal lives and professional struggles and drinking way too much coffee. The people who took an oath to heal and protect learn that they tend to do these things best when they think they’re at their worst.
