    Summary

    Not all sacrifices are bloody and violent. Not all resistance is loud and your face. Not every day is a battle or a protest. Sometimes resistance is living your life the way you want to - no matter how risky. Sometimes it’s getting through one day, and then the next, so you can make a difference in the end.

    Sunggyu never planned to join a resistance, had no desire to fight the system. Except somehow he finds himself de facto leader of a ragtag group of men who just want to live their lives in a world that wants to control every facet of them.

    Now he wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Summary

    It had started in India. A month later, Howon's not sure that counts for anything. It started, it spread, and now the world's essentially gone to shit.

    Summary

    “Jack turns in a slow, aimless circle in the middle of his living room. Blank white walls. Bare floor. A sofa, a TV, a coffee table: just the basics, really. Well, no wonder it doesn’t look like home; he can’t blame his apartment’s sudden coldness and its empty echoing spaces solely on the absence of one Eric R. Bittle. It just… doesn’t look like anyone lives here. It doesn’t feel like anyone lives here. He has no idea how to change that.”

    (Or… Jack comes home from Madison to an apartment that doesn’t smell like cinnamon, and teammates who don’t know what he means he says ‘swawesome. It feels like it should be easier, turning the place he lives into a home and the people he plays hockey with into teammates. But even ‘easy’ things have always felt harder than they should.)

    Summary

    Jack knows logically that ACL tears are common enough that his surgeon will have done this procedure dozens, if not hundreds of times, but—

    —but something can always go wrong. Most people in Jack’s situation will recover completely and without incident, but most is not the same as all. Nothing is sure. No one can make promises. He’s had eighteen months in the NHL and no power in the world can guarantee him any more.

    The plane flies over Lake Ontario. Somewhere thousands of feet below him, the Maple Leafs are preparing to take on the Capitals. His own team is thousands of miles behind him, flying south to California to play the Kings.

    Jack tips his head back against the seat and cries.
