    Summary

    "There was a reason he always included his newspaper at the end of his name. People should be identifying Trent with the Birmingham Mail, with journalistic rigor and sarcastic questions, not with locker room smiles. Not with left wing politics. Not with affairs with football players, whose evident straightness could be explained away with a fantasy of tragic closeting.

    "But a boy could dream."

    Trent Crimm has already lived a long and checkered life as a reporter, but when he meets an inexperienced coach called Ted Lasso, he breaks every single one of his own rules.

    Summary

    As far as Trent is concerned, Bantr is mostly a necessary evil.

    Ted mostly only signed up for Bantr to stop seeing Keeley’s disappointed face every time she asked him about it.

    Summary

    The hunger is constant: the unspeakable, dark craving for the flickering flame of life inside another person, the urge to take and take until the eyes glaze over and there’s nothing left to burn. Ted’s got a few decades’ worth of practice at keeping a tight lid on it by now. Still, some days are harder than others.

    But annoying people into being the best versions of themselves they can be—well, that’s doing them a favor in the long run, ain’t it?

    [A What We Do in the Shadows AU. Ted Lasso is the nicest energy vampire you’re ever likely to meet. Promise.]

    Summary

    Trent knew relegation was a mortifying prospect for any team, and Jamie Tartt’s winning goal can’t have felt like anything but salt in the wound. It was a very sad day for Richmond, and Trent would by no means relish reporting on it. 

    But there was really no excuse for Ted Lasso to have lost his mind over it.

    Or, Ted Lasso can't stop losing to Manchester City. It may or may not actually matter.
