    Summary

    Eric Bittle may be newly single, but that’s not going to stop him from keeping his dinner reservation for Harvest Haus, one of the Boston area’s most exclusive new restaurants. He’s expecting a great meal and a few pictures for social media bragging rights, maybe a nice story for his blog. What he isn’t expecting is to discover the restaurant’s reclusive, anonymous chef is none other than Jack Zimmermann — his former hockey captain and unrequited crush, who hasn’t been heard from since abruptly leaving the NHL eight years ago.

    A second chance au where Jack and Bitty never kissed at graduation, but maybe it’s not too late to get it right the second time around.

    Summary

    In 2009, while Jack Zimmermann was curled into a ball on his bed in the most expensive rehab center in Montreal, the Seattle Schooners hired talent scout (and former Olympian) Georgia Martin as their new Assistant General Manager. The Falconers had made her an offer, but they clearly viewed her as a token "diversity hire" where the Schooners truly valued the perspective a woman of color could bring to their organization.

    In 2015, she signed Jack Zimmermann, and the day after he graduated, Jack moved the 3,000 miles from Samwell to Seattle.

    Now it's 2020, and Jack is happy. He loves his team. He only has one regret, one reason why part of him will always wish he'd signed somewhere on the east coast...

    It's 2020, and the social media firm Bitty works for just transferred him to Seattle.

    Summary

    Everything stops. There's no sound, not even the sound of the blood that should be rushing in Eric's ears. He can feel the Earth stop turning. The sun goes dark, and for a second Eric knows what it's like to simply cease existing, to be sucked into a vacuum of silence. He's negative space, he's insignificant particles floating in nothing at all.

    "What happened?"

      Bookmark Notes:

      I LOVED THE REMIX EVEN BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL, both because the writing is right up my alley and because i was wondering while reading the original about exactly the premise of the remix (what happens to alt!jack?? does he fix it???)
      the exploration of dormant feelings is GORGEOUS and spot and i'm floored
