The house looks like something Morgan’s grandmother would have owned, painted baby blue with white gingerbread trim, and an entirely overgrown rose garden in the front. The house has clearly been left to the elements, even if the elegant Victorian exterior bears the aging well. Morgan’s pretty sure he’s seen exterior shots of it in a period drama, anyway. It's an objectively nice house, if in need of some work.
Morgan stares at it dubiously.
“Enough room for the team,” Jake says through a mouthful of dried mango. “Big yard for Maggie.”
“I haven't bought it,” Morgan tries to argue. “Choosing a house is important.”
“I have a feeling about this house,” Jake continues. “You're gonna buy this house, and you're gonna bitch about fixing it up, but you're gonna love it and live here forever. It's a captain’s house.” Jake grins. “You know I'm right.”
Goddamnit. Morgan is going to buy this house.
or, Morgan Rielly buys a house, builds a pack, gets a life, and falls in love, pretty much in that order. Somewhere in there, he plays some hockey, howls at the moon, and loses at least six pairs of socks to his thieving packmates. It's a pretty good life.
Patricia Kane. Well, Jonny at least has her name now.
He can't help but watch her as she pulls herself out of the pool to sit at the side, laughing at something Dayna just said. She lifts her arms to fumble at her bun and then pulls her hair-tie off, shaking her hair out; Jonny stares, transfixed, as a cascade of thick blonde curls tumble down her back.
"Oh boy," Sharpy says. "Guys, Tazer is smitten. Look at his face."
"Shut the fuck up," Jonny says, as the guys start hooting and laughing. "I just - I think she's pretty cute, that's all."
"Daddy," Stella said, her voice filling with excitement rather than any of the sadness he'd been expecting, "the lady on the TV said Claude Giroux was playing in Worlds! Are you gonna play with him?"
Sidney was honestly surprised he hadn't seen that coming.
He didn't know how it had happened, but somehow his daughter had ended up as the Flyers number one fan.
It doesn't occur to Jamie until he's standing on Tyler's front porch at 3am, barefoot, that maybe he should have called first.
In which Jamie Benn steals a dog, gets his best friend back, and combats toxic masculinity. In more or less that order.
When Dean finds out that his best friend Cas is alphasexual, he comes up with a great plan that means neither of them will have to spend their ruts alone anymore. Just alpha buds helping each other out.
Good thing Dean is straight. Otherwise, he might fall in love with his best friend.
