    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

    “Why are you crying?” Concern directed at the still crying figure, but concern directed at hoping tear stains vanish immediately. He wouldn’t want his guests to get suspicious at the possible sources of wet stains on a couch after all.

    Bitty lifts his head. Hair sticking with sweat on his forehead, dried tears on his cheeks, red-rimmed eyes, and continuous water flowing from his clearly healthy, and clearly functioning tear ducts.

    “N-nothing”, he croaks, accidentally swallowing the incoming hiccup. “There's just too much water in my body, and I don’t want to drown, so”, he sobs, “this is me trying to remove them.”

     

    --
    Or: Bitty accidentally breaks Rule No. 4.

    Summary

    "Can you tell us anything about the secret to the team's success on the ice?"

    "I just think we've got a great team, a great group of guys. I think the best thing about the Falcs is that we're a family, you know? We really know how to keep each other motivated."

    (The motivation is Bitty.)

    This was not the first time the Falconer’s had seen this scene. These wild west-like stare downs had been a twice a week occurrence since Bitty had started, but even now breaths were held.

    Summary

    Thirty minutes after being traded to Pittsburgh, Jack Zimmermann's entire life changes at the front-end of a car running a stop sign. As he recovers from his injury, and grief which is far more complicated than he wants to admit, he meets the exuberant bookshop/bakery owner, Eric Bittle. As their friendship grows, and as he waits for the go-ahead to get back to hockey, Jack is forced to evaluate his future, and what he wants from it.

    Summary

    Sometimes, when things get really hard and it's late at night and he can't sleep, Jack thinks his life might be better without hockey, that maybe if he gave it all up and became a firefighter or a gardener or a chef, if he left the ice forever, maybe then he wouldn’t need to have that bottle of pills in his bag anymore.

     

    But every time he’s back on the ice, he remembers. This is the only place where his life actually makes any sense.

    Or, the story of three times Jack Zimmermann meets Eric Bittle.

    Summary

    The decision was reckless, born out of grief and loss, and he never expected it to blow up in his face. At least not in the form of a premature baby bearing his small nose and brown eyes. Facing a decision he never thought he'd have to make, Eric feels more alone than ever. Until his lawyer, Shitty Knight, introduces him to a group of hockey players who have no problem welcoming both Eric and his new baby, into their strange but loving little family.

    Summary

    Jack thought his first year in the NHL would be 100% about hockey, but the reality is so much more complicated. (AU where the Goodbye for the Summer comics didn’t happen, because I had already written 80K words of this. But just because it’s canon doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy long, angsty, get-together stories, amirite?)

    Alternate summary, courtesy of Dracavia: What if Bad Bob didn't say anything at graduation?

    Summary

    There are things Jack didn't like about his life then: his game, his girlfriend, his drinking. His breakup with Bittle.

    Bitty didn't have it easy then either. He struggled with classes, with hockey, with his family.

    But maybe if they can work it out now, they'll get to be together again later.

    Summary

    Inspired by Something Like This by Emmagrant01, this quick fic is an alternative look at how Jack might deal with a New Year's if it ended with Bittle in someone else's arms. The story features Taylor "Whits" Whitton, an OMC created by Emmagrant01, who is about to find out what Jack's been keeping to himself...And it's not pretty.

    Written hastily as I waited with bated breath for an update a few weeks ago. Posted as we wait for Chapter 18 and the fic canon fall out of New Year's Eve. I need to read about a happy ending!
