    Summary

    This fic follows two similar timelines from Eric Bittle's childhood: the past where he meets his best friend Drew, grows apart from his father the football coach, and experiences the repercussions of being a young gay boy in the South; and the present where he finds new friends and falls in love with Jack Zimmermann, star quarterback of Coach's new high school team.

    Over six years Eric is faced with several difficult life lessons, but there is also joy, laughter, love, and self-discovery. More than anything Eric learns that sometimes in life, you really can only get better with time.

    Summary

    “You didn't have a backup plan if Shitty didn't take you back?” asks Jack, disbelieving.

    “No,” she says, halfway between laughing and crying. “I could always go home.”

    She doesn’t want to go home. She doesn’t want to hear about how an art degree never got anyone anywhere, she doesn’t want to hear her father talk about her brother getting his diploma a year earlier than planned.

    “You could,” she hears the hesitancy in Jack’s voice and opens her eyes to stare at him. “You could live with me.”

    Lardo’s eyes nearly bug out of her head. “You want me to live with you?”

    Jack looks away, almost shy. “Yeah.”

    “So, me?” she says, for clarification. “Not Bitty, me?”

    or: the year that Lardo lives in Jack's massive NHL bachelor pad and accidentally fixes both of their lives.

    or: Lardo and Jack and the road to redemption.
