    Summary

    Kent is stunned. He’s aware that he’s leaning over the boards like an idiot, but he feels like he just got rocked by a huge hit. This is Gabriel López. The Gabriel López. The one whose career Kent had followed in Juniors. The one who set records that not even he or Zimms could break.

    “López,” Kent says heavily, because he also remembers being told that Gabriel stopped playing hockey after a horrific car accident. He can’t stop his eyes from roving over Gabriel, looking for any sign of injury, which is stupid because any kind of accident would’ve taken place over ten years ago, and he’s wearing his coaching outfit of a tracksuit with the Scorpions logo.

    Or the one where Kent reunites with a familiar face, becomes the unofficial mascot of a peewee hockey team, and finds love, but maybe not in that order.

    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

    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

    “Ben had tried to get Sam to talk more about how she felt about getting to know her biological father, NHL superstar and erstwhile asshole, Kent Parson. But ever a teenager, Sam was not forthcoming to her dad.

    “‘It’s fine,’ she said. ‘He’ll buy me lunch, try to wheedle his way into my good graces, and we’ll probably never hear from him again.’ Her tone brooked no further discussion. Ben admitted to himself that she was probably right.”

    **

    Ben Wright assumes the worst when Kent Parson shows up at his door a week after his wife’s funeral. Instead of custody, all Kent wants is a chance--a chance to know his daughter, a chance to lead a normal life, a chance to make a home of his own. Navigating grief and other major life changes, Ben, Kent, and Sam discover that both families and homes are what you make of them.

    Summary

    From the way Fedorov is watching them expectantly, it's clear that he has no idea who they are or their relationship to each other, which is certainly a first.

    Kent looks like he's about to correct him, but Jack is hit with a wave of awkwardness. What would Kent even say? We're friends. We've met before. We planned for the exact situation you're in, once upon a time. We're cynical about love because we hurt each other so many times, and sometimes it was over that.

    Before Kent can say any of it, and they go back to being people who avoid each other at parties, Jack blurts out, "Jack Zimmermann, nice to meet you," and holds out his hand.

    Or, Jack and Kent are re-introduced, and pretend they don't know each other.

    Summary

    Jack breathed. Once, twice.
    You can do it. You just have to tell George about you and Bittle, and you'll feel so much better.
    George beat him to it, though.

    “Eric Bittle, your old teammate. I want him with the Falcs, the minute he graduates.”

    Well, now he couldn’t talk, could he.

    Summary

    “Parse?” Jeff breathed. “Kent, what happened?”
    Kent looked up, eyes dead. His voice creaked as he dully answered, “The Aces don’t want me anymore because I’m gay. Jeff, the NHL’s kicking me out of hockey.”

    ***
    Or, what happens if Kent had a strong group of friends, a great therapist and the ability to let go and grow.

    Summary

    Parson gestures with his spoon toward Hawke. “So am I allowed to ask about the service dog or is that not PC?”

    “My medical history is more of a 3rd date conversation," Eli says.

    “Oh? Why’s that?”

    “Because. No one sticks around afterward and I like to live in glorious denial for a short period beforehand.”

    It comes out more self-deprecating than he intended.

    Parson looks…thoughtful. “Well, does this count as one or two?

    “Pardon?”

    “This. Ice cream. I mean, technically it’s a second location, but still the same night. So is this one date or two?”

    “One,” Eli says firmly. “If it’s happening within the same three-hour period.”

    “You’re the expert,” Parson says, which, he’s really, really, not, but ok.

    “So still two dates to go then?” Parson continues.

    “I—what?”

    “We’ve got a roadie coming up but then we’re home for almost two weeks. When does your semester start?”

    “You want to do this again?” Eli asks.

    Parson stops idly twirling his spoon.

    “You don’t?”

    He does, Eli realizes. He really does. Because apparently he actually likes Kent fucking Parson.

    Summary

    Years later, the way Jeff remembered it was this: Jack Zimmermann came out to millions of people by kissing his boyfriend at the SCF and then everything went to absolute shit. At the time, it was a bit more nuanced.
