    Summary

    Kent Parson has abysmal luck. He has terrible, no good, despicable, awful goddamn luck.

    But it hadn’t always been that way. In fact, his luck had been pretty good before his foray into practical magic with his best friend, Jack Zimmerman.

    The ass.

    Summary

    “Welcome to Itty Bitty Pie Company!” and the smell of fresh-baked pies is all the warning Kent gets before he walks face-first into Jack’s back.

    “Ow,” he says, mildly, but Zimms isn’t even looking at him. He’s staring at the twinky little blond behind the counter.

    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

    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

    “Corporal Kenny,” Jack huffed into Kent’s ear. The arms around his waist tightened.

    “Captain Jack,” Kent teased right back. “You outrank me, Zimms.”

    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

    Life, for Kent Parson, is about patterns: the ways they build (violently, with Jack Zimmermann), break (tenderly, with Eric Bittle), and glue back together (with all the same pieces, rearranged).

    Summary

    Eric and Jack are so in love. However, they can't be publicly out, because they attend St. Cecilia's catholic boarding school. With the best hockey team on the east coast and dealing with mental illness, religious oppression, and more than your typical high school drama, the two struggle to finish senior year and move on to the "rest" of their life... Whatever that "rest" holds.

    Warnings: typical canon alcohol and drug use, including Jack's overdose; teen pregnancy and infidelity. more specific, spoiler-y warnings in chapter notes.

    Summary

    Kent can’t help it. He starts to laugh. This whole situation is fucked. He should have stayed in Boston. He should never have left Vegas in the first place. He’d figured it would be awkward to see Jack at the party, but he didn’t think he’d end up freezing to death with the guy in Vermont. He guesses there’s a certain sick poetry to that. Every time he’s made a calculated risk involving Jack, he’s gotten burned. He’s not accounting for all the variables correctly, like the fact that the universe hates him.

    “Kent.” Jack’s hand lands heavily on his back. He shakes him. “Come on. Kenny. Get it together.”

    “I’m going to kill you,” says Kent, into his hands. “I am literally going to murder you, Jack Zimmermann.”

    “No, you’re not,” mutters Jack. “You need me for body warmth.”

    Or: Kent gets invited to the book launch for Bad Bob's autobiography. Things don't exactly go as planned.

    Summary

    Jack takes a hit and it’s all it takes to send him and Kent reeling back to the beginning.

    Or, Kent’s a pretty confident dude and is pretty good about handling his insecurities. Until Jack plays into all of them.

    When Jack gets back together with Kent and signs with the Las Vegas Aces, Eric's whole world crumbles around him. He certainly doesn't expect Jack and Kent to be the ones who rebuild it.
