    Summary

    This fic follows two similar timelines from Eric Bittle's childhood: the past where he meets his best friend Drew, grows apart from his father the football coach, and experiences the repercussions of being a young gay boy in the South; and the present where he finds new friends and falls in love with Jack Zimmermann, star quarterback of Coach's new high school team.

    Over six years Eric is faced with several difficult life lessons, but there is also joy, laughter, love, and self-discovery. More than anything Eric learns that sometimes in life, you really can only get better with time.

    Summary

    Kent closes his eyes, and nuzzles closer. “So. You really wanna marry me.” It’s not a question, but Alexei answers him anyway.

    “I’m think I know this long time ago. When we sitting at table, and eating calamari for first time, and you throw glass across the restaurant.”

    Summary

    Jack knows logically that ACL tears are common enough that his surgeon will have done this procedure dozens, if not hundreds of times, but—

    —but something can always go wrong. Most people in Jack’s situation will recover completely and without incident, but most is not the same as all. Nothing is sure. No one can make promises. He’s had eighteen months in the NHL and no power in the world can guarantee him any more.

    The plane flies over Lake Ontario. Somewhere thousands of feet below him, the Maple Leafs are preparing to take on the Capitals. His own team is thousands of miles behind him, flying south to California to play the Kings.

    Jack tips his head back against the seat and cries.
