    Summary

    Kent needed Jack to know that he was still there. That Kent was still his... friend. Not to mention he’d be showing all his fucking cards if he ended up as “the ex who couldn’t deal with the new boyfriend” trope. Kent needed to go to this party.

    But before he could reply, Eric let out a heavy sigh.

    “If I’m bein’ honest, I really don’t wanna be here too much myself. That party...” His giant brown eyes caught Kent’s in a spotlight gaze. “You ever like someone you know you shouldn’t?”

    Summary

    Alexei isn't a manipulative person by nature, but he's observant, and he has a generous heart. At some point between being Bitty's friend and being his shoulder to lean on, Alexei found himself setting the pieces up to fall his way, and waiting for something that might never come. And then there was Kent Parson, who somehow happened in the middle of it all.

    A story where patience and steadfast kindness leads to a happy ending (except for one Jack Zimmermann).

    Summary

    In which Jack doesn't find the courage to confess his love at graduation and Bitty only complicates things by becoming the first out player in the NHL.

    ________

    In the end, it’s pretty anticlimactic. The Falcs are defending divisional champions and the Schooners are coming out of an extremely rough rebuild year with the third worst record in the league. Providence pulls out a 3-1 win in regulation, the only Seattle goal belonging to Eric; a gorgeous snipe in the third that had Jack reflexively cheering from the Falconers bench — something Jack knows immediately will be a highlight more vaulted than the goal itself.

    At the end of regulation, Jack hangs back to catch Bittle before he's ushered off the ice, pulling him into a tight hug that makes the remaining Schooners fans go wild. “Good game, Bits,” he knocks his helmet against Bittle’s and tries to ignore the immediate camera flashes. This was always the plan: two marketing departments eager to dominate the news cycle; It isn't hard to fake enthusiasm because right now Eric Bittle is a perfect amalgamation of Jack’s two favorite things in the whole world: hockey and handsome blondes.

    “Great game, Jack,” Bitty laughs.

    Summary

    Seventeen minutes sat alone in the box was the penalty the NHL imposed on Alexei Mashkov for the fight he instigated two minutes into the second period.

    Bitty's sure he can be more creative than that!

    Summary

    Four years after Bitty graduated Samwell, and he's exactly where he thought he would be. Mostly. Well, he's close, and that's what counts. He's dating Jack, and their close friends know! So what if he's not out-out yet... it'll happen. Someday. Jack promised. When Kent Parson - of all people - shows up in Providence with no warning, Bitty isn't happy about it. Especially when Kent points out the lack of follow-through in his current life plan.

    But hey.... plans can change right? Especially when Bitty decides to have a conversation he should have had a long time ago, and the choices he makes next throw his whole universe for a loop.
