    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.)

    This is one of the first fics I read in this fandom, and it was I think a pretty good introduction to these characters. Both sets of parents play a significant role while both Georgia and Canada are the locations of key scenes. The relationship between Jack and his parents, especially Bad Bob, is thoughtfully described as well as the that of Kent with all Zimmermanns. Eric's teenage years in Georgia are also touched upon, most notably with one memorable scene with Simon, described as his teenage crush, that would in itself call for a whole other story.

    Most SMH players from the first two generations appear heavily (Ransom, Holster, Shitty, Lardo, but also Dex, Nurse and Chowder). It looks like the fic was finished before later characters were introduced by Ngozi (no mention of Tater for instance)

    It is also notable by its use of LJ and Tumblr posts, tweets and instant messages as ways of telling the story. The comments written to these posts show the author has more than a passing familiarity with fandom workings. You also have within the fic recommendations to what is, from that perspective, RPF works, which are so well-done that the fact that they don't exist is a bit crushing.

    In that same universe, the author wrote nine other stories (one of which is likely never to be finished) that flesh out even further the universe, most notably by telling the story from Kent's perspective (Nate plays the Swoops-like role here since Ngozi had yet to introduce him) or imagining Jack's later life as captain of the Falconers.

    The writing is mostly very good, despite a few jarring POV changes that could possibly0have been made clearer (but I only write this as to appear somewhat objective).
