    Summary

    It doesn't come out of nowhere, despite what Dylan probably thinks.

    And, okay, Mitch knows that the super adult thing to do would have been to just talk about it, sit down on the sofa and bring it up and give his reasons and whatever, but he's forever and always himself, so that's not how it goes. Mitch waits until Dylan starts eating his gross yogurt, and just when Dylan puts his fourth scoop into his mouth, Mitch says, "I think we should have sex."

    Dylan chokes on his mouthful of yogurt, walking the two steps to the sink so he can spit it out and continue coughing, and Mitch opens up his own jar of yogurt and digs in.

    Perfect.

    (or: Mitch is ace. That doesn't mean he isn't curious.)

    Summary

    Beneath the table, Jack’s hand squeezes around Kent’s knee. And -- Kent forgets. For just a few seconds, he forgets that they can’t be together, that Jack doesn’t want him in that way, that he’s trying to move on.

    “We’re friends, right?” Jack says.

    “Yeah, Zimms,” he says. “We’re friends.”

     

    Or: Kent and Jack are friends, then friends-with-benefits, then maybe something more. Kent isn’t sure.

    Summary

    In the weeks after the Stanley Cup, many things went unsaid.

    “I don’t want to comment on Jack Zimmermann’s private life,” Kent practiced into the mirror. He shook his head. “I’m not able to—I’m not the one who—fuck.”

    “I didn’t want to keep y’all waiting for so long, so to make it up, I’ve come up with two new—no, no…” Bitty closed his eyes, took a breath, and put on his best smile for his camera. “Y’all probably already figured out I’ve turned off the comments for now—hah.”

    “I don’t remember,” Jack said when he meant he couldn’t find the right words. It was close enough. What did it matter? It was a different him, back when they called him Zimms.
