    Summary

    His name feels bitter on her tongue, like something gone stale. Harold gets up to make his way to the door, his movements stiff, awkward. He limps, his spine rigid, and when he turns to her on the doorstep, it is with his whole body, not just his head. Grace thinks about the metal bolts and pins drilled into his bones, all the things that have bled and healed and left scars between them.

    Summary

    He’s in Roy Kent’s arms.

    Which…you know, childhood dream and all. Cause that poster was right where he could see it from his bed, wasn’t it? And when he was alone in that bed, and the moonlight slanted over that scowling face just right, it was pretty easy to imagine the hands doing some wandering under the sheets weren’t his own—and it felt so shivery-good, thinking of that rough, growling voice in his ear, telling him he was good, was perfect, was…

    Well, never mind that.

    Summary

    "Just like that, Jamie freezes. Freezes like he's forgotten how to be touched by someone. Like he's forgotten that touch can be kind. Fuck. But Roy keeps a hold of him, won't even consider letting go. In his arms, Jamie is safe from whatever that fuckhead wants to try. In his arms Jamie is safe from whatever Jamie wants to do to anyone else, or himself.
    Jamie is frozen in his arms, and that’s alright. He’s frozen, and it’s okay. He’s still in one piece.
    And then he fucking shatters."

     

    My take on how s2e8 may have continued, with a pre-poly Keeley/Roy/Jamie spin.

    Summary

    Jamie doesn’t really remember what he said, or what his dad said, but he vividly remembers his fist connecting with his dad’s face.

    --

    Or, Roy and Jamie connect in the immediate aftermath of what happened at Wembley
