    Summary

    During the initial rush of young volunteers to fight in the Great War, William Poindexter is busy tending to ships and his family with steady hands and a quiet courage. Once it’s clear that it won’t be over quickly, however, he feels no choice but to enlist in the service of Queen and Country.
    In Eastern France, he meets American Derek Nurse, a singer and a poet who teaches him how to laugh and be free in a way Will hadn’t known he was even missing. Their connection is grounding in the uncertainty and dangers of the War they’ve both promised to return home from. But as is the way of War, their connection is unexpectedly shattered beyond repair.
    Unless, by some miracle, an act of fate or God or perhaps just the force of a bond that can’t be broken, they can find their way to each other again in the midst of a new age of uncertainty and danger - the Prohibition

    Summary

    Derek Nurse may have been falling in love with a certain William J. Poindexter on and off for the past three years. He doesn't see how competing with Ransom and Holster for the title of Best D-Men the summer before senior year is going to help, but for some reason, that's exactly what he finds himself doing.
    (It’s not like it’s a thing, NurseyandDex, DexandNursey. It’s just that it’s not like it’s not a thing either.)

    Summary

    One more year.
    Pa’s words linger in his ears when he pulls out of the driveway, watches his parents waving in the rearview. One more year is right. He’s a senior. He can’t believe it.
    He blows past the Leaving Bar Harbor sign on the bridge right at sunrise. Sure, he’s leaving home, but Samwell is home, too— or a second home, at least, a safe place full of people he loves. And this year, he has so much to look forward to.

    (Or: Captain Dex returns to Samwell for his senior year.)

    Summary

    Derek goes to Samwell University ready for a new start. He meets a guy, and he finally thinks, this is it. He's a grown-up, he's cool, he's normal.

    It’s not that it wasn’t consensual.

    It was just a bigger deal for Derek than it was for him.

    Derek spends the next few months trying to get over something he should already be over with. It's harder than he thinks it'd be.

    Summary

    Will was a child, once, just like anyone else, and he had a best friend. He hasn't spoken to them in years, not since he sent them that final email in high school telling them he wouldn't be in contact anymore. It was the coward's way out, he knows, but he was terrified they may turn on him like the rest of his transphobic town did when his truth came out. He couldn't handle the possibility of his best friend, the person he believed could be his soulmate, abandoning him that way. So he abandoned them first.
    He has new friends now. A whole team that cares about him. Chowder, the sunshine on his rainy days. Nursey, the unlikely friend that he now can't imagine being without, someone he know probably isn't his soulmate but hopes desperately for anyway.
    There are many regrets in his heart, but he's moving forward, and sometimes that means looking back.

    Summary

    When Nursey made a passing comment about Dex at the Pens Development Camp, he never expected this to happen.

    AU Sequel to Some Things Can't Be Fixed. Freaky Friday AU. Takes place the summer between the Frogs' sophomore and junior years (after year 3 in canon).

    In between posting this first chapter, and finishing the rest of the fic, this fic also became extra AU because Penguins won the Stanley Cup in 2016 instead of the Falconers. The Falconers were now eliminated from the Playoffs in game 7 of the Conference Final. Jack and Bitty never came out.

    Summary

    It starts like this.

    Nursey is fed up and young and rebellion lights like fire in his bones and goads him to act out, and Dex yearns and yearns for more than he thinks he deserves.

    It starts like this, with Nursey asleep on the train to Boston and with Dex asleep on a bus to the same place. Everything, the sleepless nights on sanctuary stages and the polar bear dares into sleepy rivers, begins with two rides to somewhere better.

    Summary

    Derek can’t find his glasses.
    He was literally just wearing them, but then he needed to rub a stray eyelash out of his eye, and he knows better than anyone how that was an impossible task to do through one’s glasses without smudging them so he took them off and put them... somewhere. Shit.
    “Dammit,” Derek says, sitting up and putting the book he was reading to the side carefully. It’s a hardcover and definitely heavy enough to crack his glasses if he’s not careful.

     

     

     

    Derek Nurse is like his father in a lot of ways. It's not a bad thing.

    Summary

    Day 2 of Nursey Week. Prompt: Surprise or Simplicity.

    It had always been easy to surprise Derek. Leila Nurse had discovered this at the ripe old age of six when she found that no matter how many times she played peek-a-boo with her baby brother, it never failed to amuse him. By the time he was three, and she was eight, the activity that gave her the greatest joy in life was watching his eyes widen in astonishment over something she had done. In those first years, she wasn’t always kind about it, taking a thrill out of jumping out from behind doors and creeping up on him while he was walking out of kindergarten. She was eleven, and Derek was six, when she realized that scandalization was another way she could draw that response from him.

    Or, 5 times Derek was surprised by his sister and once he surprised her.
