    Summary

    It’s not as if Kent never realized there were things about himself that he didn’t want to share with his team or his fans. But none of his secrets felt like burdens before.

    Summary

    Kent Parson has a lot going on. He's in the NHL, he's closeted, his ex just came out on national TV, and the only creature that knows just how unhappy he is is his cat, Kit Purrson.

    He just wanted a quiet year, where he could fight his constant self-doubt, lead his team back to the Stanley Cup, and maybe have decent anonymous hook-up or two.

    Instead, he gets teammates forcing him to be friends, media hounding him about his past and Jack Zimmerman's big gay kiss, and a peaceful cat cafe with a cute owner.

    Summary

    Sometimes I delete scenes for pacing but I still like them. Sometimes I write alternate points of view to get a feel for the characters.

    These scenes may be less well edited than main stories, but I didn't want to just trash them and I thought they added to the over all narrative. That said, if you see typos and want to tell me, I'm happy to go back and fix them. I'd just rather have the large amount of work I throw at my beta not include these.

    (Even though my series name is from a Rachel Platten song, Kent says the rest of the series has to be from Britney.)

    Summary

    Kent really isn’t surprised when it goes to shit really quickly. David breaks up with him right after he gets back from a road trip. Kent knows before he even says anything because he walks into his apartment and there are boxes of David’s stuff packed up and set next to the door. He walks into the bedroom and finds David packing his clothes up into another box sitting on the closet floor.

    He says, “everything is just going so fast” and “I promise I never meant to lead you on” and “we’ll talk later okay? I promise.” Except A) they talked about moving in together for months before they finally decided to do it B) David was the one who wanted to move in in the first place and C) it’s been three weeks and David hasn’t so much as texted to see if Kent could bring over the few things he forgot at the apartment. So Kent knows he must have done something to mess this up, except he doesn’t know what. And so the whole pattern of him getting dumped by his exes without another word continues.

    Summary

    Kent’s sick of feeling like this. Fucking sick of it.

    //

    They’re sitting on Kent’s couch, each nursing a mug of hot chocolate that went cold about 10 minutes ago, when Jeff asks, hesitation in every inch of his body language, “Is this about… Zimmermann?”

    Kent breathes in. Breathes out. Nods gently.

    “Isn’t everything?” Kent asks. “But it’s, uh, it’s – not his fault. Like, all of the – the shit in my head – it comes back to him? But most of it isn’t his fault.”

    Or: Kent gets better.

    Summary

    It’s kinda crazy how in this age and day, you literally can break up with someone via text! just send short message along the lines “i’m breaking up with you” and the job is done. Amazing, right?
    And Kent still has to find out his husband wants a divorce (probably) when his husband kisses some boy on the ice of the most important game of Jack’s life, to time.

    Summary

    “My soulmate is Russian,” Kent says quietly, then repeats it a tiny bit louder. “He’s Russian. And he’s going to be in the NHL.”

    Katie is glowing. “You’re going to be able to find him.”

    “I’m going to be able to find him,” Kent echoes.

    +++

    “Of course,” she giggles, wiping tears from her eyes. “Of course your soulmate is a scrappy, sarcastic little asshole who gets in fights standing up for the underdog.”

    Alexei frowns. “He could’ve gotten hurt. He won’t be able to play hockey if he gets hurt.”

    That, for some reason, only makes Sabina laugh harder.

    +++

    [A soulmate AU in which once a year, on your birthday, you see through your soulmate's eyes for exactly sixty seconds. It takes Kent and Alexei a long, long time to find each other.]

    Summary

    Their first Christmas in their new home ought to be perfect, Ben thought. Too bad there were still boxes everywhere, no decorations on the tree, no lights on the trees or porch outside, not a single cookie to be found… none of the trappings that made Christmas and all of the chaos of moving. He didn’t even have a gift for Kent yet.

    Good thing Kent had a plan.

    Summary

    Sometimes, when it’s very dark and quiet in his apartment, Kent lets himself cry. He lets himself think about all the people that he has lost, all by his own fault. He knows he doesn’t deserve to feel sorry for himself. But sometimes, he can’t help it.
     

    Or, it gets worse before it gets better.

    Summary

    Anyway, Kent Parson was not a narcissist. He wasn't in love with himself and he didn't think he was better than everyone else. He'd worked for everything he had with everything he had and he'd brought his mother and his sister up out of the shadows they'd grown up in.

    Kent Parson was not a narcissist. Up until he turned 20, he'd only loved one man and it certainly wasn't himself. Now, six years later, that list had gone up and even hit double figures, but he still wasn't on it.

    See, Kent Parson really wasn't a narcissist. But, Goddamn, he liked seeing the wall-high photo of himself at the entrance to the Aces Stadium - skates on, Cup in hand, and captioned with a list of achievements starting with "Sportsman of The Year - 2011" and ending with "Highest NHL point-scorer".

    Summary

    It took about ten minutes to get word to Alexei. Jeff called Georgia right after he called the ambulance, she told the coaches, and the coaches pulled Alexei off the ice as soon as they could. He went to sit at first, thinking it was just another shift change, but the head coach gestured him over. Their heads were close together, and no one else heard what was said. All the fans saw was Alexei’s stricken face before he disappeared down the tunnel, already stripping gear off.

    Summary

    Kent and Jack were only kids when they fell in love, mixed up kids with a childhood of issues that led them to a very unhealthy place but if they can survive the worse and find a way to move forward maybe, eventually, they can both be happy and live rather than just surviving.
