Fic: sugar, we're going down swinging [kane/toews, hockey rpf au]
It's been eight years since Patrick made the hardest decision he's ever had to and left the love of his life; eight years in which he's made sure not to see, hear, or talk about Jonathan Toews, heir to multinational conglomerate, the Toews-Gilbert Group. And even though he's never really gotten over Jonny and the way they broke up, he's settled in his life now; he's an award-winning pastry chef with his own successful bakery, and he's slowly inching his way towards forgetting completely about Jonny.

Then when he least expects it, Jonny walks back into his life - with a fiancé - and asks him to design their wedding cake.

Despite his misgivings and the reopening of old wounds, Patrick can't help thinking that maybe Jonny's reappearance, after all this time, is a chance for him to finally get closure and be friends with Jonny once more.

(But you know what they say about best-laid plans.)

Fic: misery chicken [latta/wilson, hockey rpf]
Mike runs into his ex-husband at ten AM on a Tuesday in a Whole Foods. He’s right in the middle of illicitly sneaking some pre-made asparagus into his mouth to see if he wants to put it in one of those little containers and take it out for lunch. He bites down, and looks up, and makes eye-contact with Tom across the food station as he robotically chews. The small part of him that doesn’t want to curl up and die notes that the teriyaki-based sauce is pretty good, actually.

“Hi,” he says, or tries to say. He still has asparagus in his mouth. He’s thirty-seven, he’s just seen his ex-husband for the first time in twelve years, and his mouth is full of a vegetable that he doesn’t even really like all that much.

Fic: Of Epistles and Epiphanies [clark/lex, smallville]
There is no salutation. It begins like this:

I want you to know that I am not of sound mind, and that if I were, I would never have written this, and having written (or rather, being in the process of writing it) I already fully regret the impulse. However, having started, I can’t turn back.

Which is just so typically Lex that Clark chokes on his coffee as he sits in front of his computer, reading his morning email before class.

Fic: Wherever You're Going (I'm Going Your Way) [danny/claude, hockey rpf]
Claude's been in love before, is the thing. He's even been in love with Danny before, though he hadn't realized it at the time. He remembers how this goes.

All in all, it's not exactly a surprise. A bit inconvenient, but not a surprise.

Fic: round-trip [latta/wilson, hockey rpf]
"Before we broke up, we'd planned out a road trip, with maps and guidebooks," Mike says, after a while. "Salt Lake City to the Grand Canyon and then finally ending in Los Angeles. But we broke up, so we didn't go." He stares out the window at the nighttime sidewalks and the city lights as the cab makes its way down the streets.

"No offense, but if this is what you guys are like broken up, I can't imagine what you were like when you were actually together." TJ sounds like he's light years away.

Mike's chest feels warm, and he grins. "We were great," he says, remembering lying on the bed and carefully dragging a heavy black marker across a map, Tom flicking through guidebooks while resting his head on Mike's back.

Fic: Keep Every Home Fire Burning [booster/ted, dcu au]
Booster looked as young and bright and matinee-idol gorgeous as he had when Ted had last seen him, and for a heart-stopping moment it was as if the past three years had never happened, as if the concentrated effort Ted had made to excise Booster from his life and his heart had never taken effect, and Ted could walk up to him, throw an arm around his shoulders, and tell him his latest idea for a prank to pull on Guy.

Then he saw the baby.

Fic: Heartbreak is the National Anthem! [derek/stiles, teen wolf au]
This could turn out even worse than either of them could ever imagine, but at this point, every thing is a game to Stiles. He's learned how to play his cards exactly right and get what he wants out of every single situation, maybe not always in his best interest, but scamming alphas out of their money and time is fun.

He scratches at the back of his head, takes a second to adjust his shirt, moving away from the railing he'd been leaning up against, and gives Derek a firm glare. Pointing one finger directly into his face and trying to fight off the smirk, he says, “just don't go falling in love with me while you're at it.”

Derek sneers. “I'll pray for the strength to not succumb to your wiles.”

“Oh, that's what they all say."

It wasn’t like Patrick hadn’t always known this thing with him and Jonny had an expiration date. He just hadn't expected Jonny to dump him at the breakfast table.

Fic: Bad Press [briere/giroux, hockey rpf]
Claude wonders whose calls he’s ignoring. The front office, definitely. They have people whose job it is to, like, watch those stupid sports blogs. Have his teammates seen it yet, other than Brayden? Brayden hangs with a lot of the younger guys, the ones who are still insecure enough to obsess over Crossing Broad. It’s not that surprising that he saw this before Claude did. But has Claude’s family gotten ahold of it yet? Claude cringes inwardly. He never actually told his family the nature of his relationship with Danny, though he’s sure his mother and Isabelle guessed how he felt, at least.

Claude wonders if Danny’s calling. He sort of he wishes he would, just to tell Claude what to do, how to handle the situation. But Danny’s not here, and he isn’t Claude’s boyfriend, either -- he hasn’t been for almost a year.

Mike should say no. There’s no way Liam doesn’t have curfew, and Mike has already fucked up enough, letting the kid come back with him. Mike should say no, but he doesn’t want to. Has Liam sprawled out on his bed for the first time in years and he wants to keep him there.

Fic: Essentials [estaal/skinner, hockey rpf]
"You're the best," Eric said, slinging an arm around Jeff's shoulders.

"I know." Jeff smiled, only a flicker of dimples showing. He ducked out from under Eric's arm and returned to his stall. Eric watched him go, and sighed. He'd forgotten, just for a second, that he wasn't allowed to do that anymore.

Fuck. What a fucking awful year.

Fic: Lord knows it would be the first time [derek/stiles, teen wolf]
Stiles is home from Berkeley for the summer, but only because he promised the pack. He'd rather not see Derek, because whatever the thing was that they were doing, they're not doing it anymore, and it sucks.

Unfortunately, he doesn't have a choice. The betas tried a magical remedy for Derek's melancholy, and now Stiles has a three-year-old who looks like Derek. Stiles doesn't know how to deal with that, and he definitely doesn't know how to tell the betas he and Derek were secret fuck buddies for a year and a half.

Fic: they don't open from outside [sid/geno, hockey rpf]
Sidney is fine going into the meeting, he really is. He has a script, practiced with Mario and with Geno, and when he’s fixing Geno’s collar in the hallway outside of Ray’s office, Geno bumps his fingers against his side and says, “Nice game face, Sid.”

“Oh, shut up,” Sidney says. But Geno’s eyes are soft and warm, and his fingers skate up the side of Sidney’s ribs, over his shirt but still solid and somehow centering. Sidney’s fine, he absolutely is, and he can absolutely do this, but like most things, it will be easier with Geno at his side.
