roll like a rolling stone - Idday
After the combine, Jack drives herself out to a strip mall north of Boston, parks in front of the little nail salon that nobody else knows that she knows about.

When she has the choice, she keeps her nails like this—long, just this side of sharp, painted a deep red.

Connor would never have dreamed of it happening, when they were named to the same team.

He certainly doesn't expect it to continue.

// (Or, Connor and Jack hook up at the World Cup. What comes next is... well. New.) [12,713 words]

Seven-Year Itch - Idday
“I’m sorry,” Georgia says slowly, like she thinks she misheard him. “You said you’re… married?”

Amanda raises her eyebrows and taps something onto her keyboard. “That’s good to know, Mr. Zimmermann, but I’m sure you know that many of our players are married.”

“Right, but this is… different.” Jack says.

“Jack,” Georgia says, “Why did you never mention this before? Do I know your wife?”

“I’m sure you do,” Jack says carefully, “Only… it’s not a wife. It’s Kent Parson.”

// So what if they’re not pretending to be married. They’re still pretending to be happily married. [14,310 words]

Kent does not have hoes in different area codes.

What he does have are the numbers of several professional hockey players discreetly saved into his phone—Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, Toronto.

It works for them, because they all have the same thing to lose as he does and they all understand his schedule and none of them expect to talk at all between visits.

It works for Kent because he doesn’t believe in getting attached.

// Alyosha is different. [4,508 words]

this dream isn't feeling sweet - Idday
“I’m sorry,” Georgia says, her voice soft. “We would like to thank you for all your contributions to the Falconers. You will be missed in Providence. We wish you all the best with the Houston Aeros, and know that you will have a great career there. They’ll need you in Houston for tomorrow night’s game.”

(It's just hockey. Nothing personal.) [11,855 words]

No Other Love - Idday
And maybe it’s irony, or the universe at work, or maybe it’s just Derek Hale’s shitty luck, but that’s when, at that exact moment (as Stiles will swear later), there’s a knock on the door.
“Laura?” Derek breathes in disbelief, and Stiles feels his own face fall into confused slackness.
Because the girl standing in the doorway? The last time Stiles had seen her—or, well, half of her—she’d been very naked, and very, very dead.
“Hey, baby bro,” she says with a grin.

// OR: The one where Laura comes back from the dead, and it turns out to be bad for Stiles, because he’s suddenly spending a lot of quality time with one of the coolest people he’s ever met, and her brother. The guy that he might be just a little in love with.
He's not okay. [18,745 words]
