    Summary

    “My dear Derek. Every NCAA Division 1, first string hockey player has entertained the possibility of going pro. Live your dream dude.”

    English Lit did not prepare Derek Nurse for the absolute chaos that would descend on his life once the Falconers set up a training camp at Samwell. He specifically isn’t prepared to keep bumping into William Poindexter, newly traded to the Falconers from the Aces, to show up with a reputation to build upon and a chip on his shoulder.

    But Nursey’s not going to let that wreck his chill, especially when he’s busy trying to wingman for Bitty with the handsome and dorky Mr. Jack Zimmermann.

    As Nursey and Dex get to know each other through training and Haus Parties, it feels like the opposite of love at first sight but actions definitely speak louder than words.

    The short summary: It’s the Nursey/Dex Pride and Prejudice AU no one asked for.

    Summary

    Lardo made a promise to the hockey gods and signs on as the Bachelorette when she and her team win the Isobelle Cup. So far, so good, right? Wrong. Lardo, self-proclaimed aromantic bitch, is absolutely uninterested in meeting anyone, let alone some of the people that sign up as candidates. Lucky for her, (almost) everyone on the show turns out to be some flavour of queer, so everything works out just fine. And that includes Kent and Tater, who bond over twitter and their shared love for trashy reality tv.

    Or: Lardo sets everyone up instead of trying to find her tru luv, in what is (not so) secretly Kent's (love) story.

    Summary

    Beautiful but cold, Prince Laurent of Arles has vowed to marry only the one to best him in a footrace. The winner will get his hand in marriage - and the power and influence that come with it - but the price of failure is death.
    The latest in a long string of suitors to attempt Laurent’s challenge and lose is Prince Kastor of Ios. Damen, desperate to save his brother’s life, travels to Arles himself to participate in the race. Once there, however, he quickly realizes that Laurent desires to marry him about as much as he desires to marry Laurent - that is to say, not at all.
    Rather than risk being trapped in a marriage that would make them both miserable, they agree to a different wager: if Damen wins the race, Laurent will let Kastor go, but if he loses, Damen will have to stay in Arles for a year, doing Laurent’s bidding.
