    Summary

    “My true love will have hair the color of yellow apples,” and Jack Zimmermann will take a bite from the forbidden fruit, juice running down his chin. “My true love will be exactly five feet and six-and-a-half inches tall,” and he will chew a leaf from a tree of that same height. “My true love will be as sweet as sugar and sharp as lemon,” and he will drink half a glass of Great-Aunt Cathy’s lemonade, waiting until the last dregs of sugar hit his tongue. “And if a single one of these things is not to be, then let it be known—my true love shall not be he.”

    (He knows in his bones that this spell won’t ever come true. After all, his true love isn't real, and if he’s not real, then the curse can’t take him. That’s the whole point.)

    --

    Or, a Practical Magic AU. Wherein Jack Zimmermann must deal with family curses, hockey legacies, accidental manslaughter, Kent Parson’s obstinate death wish, and a snarky Southern kitchen warlock who won’t mind his own damn business.

    Summary

    Whatever the case was, it felt almost like a visceral relief to get behind the wheel of his car and just drive. He didn’t know where the fuck he was going, but as the lights of Boston in his rear view mirror began to fade, he finally felt like he could breathe again.

    And he hadn’t realised just how damn long he’d been gasping for air.

    Summary

    Elephants (small figurine ones, not real ones) keep showing up in the mail. Brian doesn't know what to think about that, but he likes them.

    Summary

    Even if Brian could trace all the steps, pinpoint all the decisions and actions that led them to this moment, where he sits in an office in the Illinois Capitol Building while John Bender--who is his actual, legal husband, after years of domestic partnership bullshit and longer with no legal standing whatsoever--fails to stay awake in their Springfield apartment...even if he could do that, he doubts it would lessen his sense of wonder at how it's played out.
