    The Proposal AU

    -

    The US government has messed up and Jack Zimmerman, high powered book editor for Knights Publishers, is being deported back to Canada. In order to stay in the country he convinces Eric Bittle, his assistant, to pretend to be his fiance but Bitty has some conditions of his own first. One of which is spending the weekend at Bitty's family home in Georgia for Moomaw's birthday. With immigration lurking nearby and Bitty's family just around the corner, can they stick to the charade or will their nuptials be spoilt before they've even begun?

    Summary

    MooMaw's been telling Dicky things. Suzanne has to decide what to do about that, if anything. It's probably fine, really.

    Title from the wonderful 1970s folk song. Here are Crosby, Stills and Nash singing it live with the lyrics superimposed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zj8FlXGPcOQ

    Summary

    I’ve been trying on and off to write a Check Please fanfic since I fell in love with this comic in January 2018. Finally, this came to me in the shower and I rushed through writing it in just a few hours. Frankly, I don’t know what took me so long to come up with writing from MooMaw’s pov. I love smart, funny old ladies. I love to put them in my fic and have them explain truths other people are too young and insecure and inexperienced to see. I love to have them be brave and mature enough to solve the problems other people can’t. Frankly, I am precariously close to becoming an old lady myself (though I am a lot closer in age to Suzanne and Richard than I am to MooMaw), and I hope I can be half as cool as some of the ones I’ve written.

    In this fic MooMaw meets Jack, gets a clue, and realizes she can help. But Eric can't quite hear her. Yet.

    Title taken from the wonderful old folk song. Here's Johnny Cash singing it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGa3zFRqDn4

    Summary

    Everything stops. There's no sound, not even the sound of the blood that should be rushing in Eric's ears. He can feel the Earth stop turning. The sun goes dark, and for a second Eric knows what it's like to simply cease existing, to be sucked into a vacuum of silence. He's negative space, he's insignificant particles floating in nothing at all.

    "What happened?"

    *

    A week in the life of a death.

    Summary

    Suzanne Bittle never thought her life would end up this way. She never thought she'd live for over twenty years in the closet. She never thought she and her son would have so much in common. She never thought she'd get divorced. She never thought she'd move away from Georgia and definitely never thought she'd move to New England.

    She never thought she'd fall in love again.

    Summary

    Bitty is a southern man, and therefore he knows guns. And, as it turns out, Bitty can SHOOT. His accuracy is incredible enough to almost make his daddy cry, and *almost* enough to make up for all the rest of the things that fuel his childhood bullies' aggressions.

    But only almost.

    And so he chooses a northern college, far from home - rural enough to feel familiar, but liberal enough that he doesn’t have to be so afraid anymore. Going to the woods on the weekends with the rifle he keeps in storage, shooting for targets until his fingers are numb, helps him with the lingering homesickness.

    He didn’t expect to be seen. He never expected to have his name shoved in front of the school biathlon coach, who has his hands full of great skiers but not so many crack-shots.

    His folks hadn’t been sure about sending their boy into Yankee territory, but when they hear he could get his degree for free just for firing a gun? They’re on board. But Bitty’s not sure about this whole skiing thing, especially when the team captain is scowling at him harder every time he falls.

    Summary

    Bitty couldn’t remember if he was allowed to nod or not. He couldn’t remember what most of the doctors had said to him in the past few days. He was stable, maybe. He was well enough to go home. He was going to spend a few weeks to heal and rest. Bitty didn’t remember whose idea it was to bring him back to Madison, but he felt nothing inside him to argue, not when he was sure it hadn’t been a dream that his mother had cried by his side every time he opened his eyes. He wondered how many days it has been since the incident.
