    Summary

    Sidney always knew his family would pick who he ended up with. It was how things were done, and no matter what the outside world thought, he'd never questioned it before because it was just the reality: ice was frozen, getting checked against the boards knocked the wind out of you, one day Sid would be matched to someone his parents and the matchmaker and his aunts and uncles and his community thought was the best fit for him. And best of all, Sidney wouldn't have to worry about it. He would just focus on hockey. He'd deal with it one day. Eventually.

    'One day' had seemed so much farther away when he was younger.

    Summary

    The man grips his arm tightly. “You’re not going to say anything.” It’s not a question.

    Louis shakes his head, his body twitching.

    “Fine,” large green eyes survey him before letting go. “It’s cold. Take this. Wear it.”

    Louis can’t help another flinch as the man’s long scarf is wrapped around his tender neck, it’s still warm. He touches the soft material. “Thank you.”

    The man bears his teeth. “Don’t thank me. Don’t ever thank me.”

    --

    Dystopian AU. Louis has been alone for too long to remember how not to be, and Harry has too much to worry about to deal with a scrawny, wild, stranger.

    Summary

    “Patrick,” Jonny cuts in. He’s breathing too hard. “You’re not supposed to touch me because I hurt people. My touch. It hurts people.”

    “Well, you didn’t hurt me,” Patrick says, flopping onto the bed.

    Summary

    Sublimation

    1. Passing from one phase to another without transitioning through an intermediate phase.
    2. Where socially unacceptable impulses or idealizations are consciously transformed into socially acceptable actions or behavior, possibly resulting in a long-term conversion of the initial impulse.

    Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews should probably have figured out the first time what this type of behavior meant.
