    Summary

    Connor grabs Auston’s phone right out of his hand, his heart beating triple time in anticipation as he taps the notification. Having Dylan on the Oilers would be a dream come true. It’s something Connor has wished for a million times, even though—

    The page loads, and Connor lets out his breath all in a rush. It’s not Dylan Strome that’s been traded to the Oilers, it’s Ryan Strome. That’s… disappointing, but also weirdly relieving.

    from grittyreadsfic.tumblr.com: fake mcstrome!!! on one hand, i was hesitant to read this, because i’m such a fan of connor/dylan, but it really was an unexpected gem. it does a great job transitioning the dynamic from “dylan’s-best-friend and dylan’s-brother” to something more, and it also dives a little into the fact that our friendships and relationships and our feelings are complex and a little messy sometimes

    Summary

    “I can’t go to sleep yet,” Mikey murmured against Nate’s mouth, “I’m not tired.”
     
    Nate knew this couldn’t be true, his and Mikey’s season had just finished and they were both exhausted. Still, Nate knew what Mikey meant when he said he couldn’t go to sleep yet, that he was too wired up, because he felt exactly the same way.
     
    “I think I’ve got a way to make you more relaxed,” Nate said, mouth curving into a smirk as he brushed a hand over Mikey’s cheek. Mikey’s mouth smiled against his own.

    ***

    Nate and Mikey are there for each other when the Devils don't make the playoffs.

    Summary

    “Good evening and thank you for calling QVC. My name is Gabe and I will be assisting you tonight. What is the name and product number of the item you are you looking to buy this evening?”

    There’s a slight pause and then he hears a snort from the other end of the line, “Wow, that was almost convincing. I mean, I know it’s 3 in the morning but show some enthusiasm. Gabe,” the caller says.

    Summary

    “You don’t know what you’re in for,” EJ says, strapping himself in and wiggling back and forth on the bike seat to get himself comfortable. And Gabe believes him - he knows his best friend well enough to be certain that EJ has an ulterior motive for getting him to a six am spin class. Still: something drops in his stomach when EJ’s eyes cut past him to the doorway of the classroom, and immediately his mouth twists into a knowing smirk. “But go ahead and take a look.”

    He can’t help it; Gabe turns in his seat so that he can see the entrance to the spin room. The instructor is walking in, waving hello to the attendees he recognizes and heading for the bike at the front of the room, the one leading the peloton and the closest to the mirrors. The man sheds his hoodie, and drops the gym bag he’s carrying at the foot of the front bike.

    Gabe’s jaw nearly drops, too.

    EJ knows that Gabe has a type. He was prepared for a lot of things, knowing how EJ’s scheming usually goes, but he was definitely not prepared for this.
