    Summary

    Jack's brief stint in the QMJHL ended suddenly and badly. His presence at the small, preppy, out-of-the-way Samwell Academy is nothing more than a compromise with his parents to stay out of a mental institution.

    Jack's fine with it. Really. He's fine. F I N E. And he will be as long as he forgets his past and ignores his future.

    At least he's still playing hockey.

    Summary

    Jack just wasn't the sort to believe that the universe hated him. The universe was vast, ancient, and presumably had better things to do that mess with an NCAA hockey player from Montreal. The universe, he believed, was entirely indifferent to him.

    No doubt whatever it was that had it out for him was on a much smaller scale.

    This is the story of Jack trying to maintain his determined single-mindedness to win the Stanley Cup throughout the crucial senior year, despite an endless parade of distractions. Like friendship and love, magic, the criminal justice system, the inherent fragility of human life, and that Halo song that he keeps getting stuck in his head.

    Summary

    A lineman comes over to break them up and get the game moving on. Apparently his goal counted, though that felt like years ago, and they got a few more seconds on the clock. It doesn’t matter. In the end, he got a hell of a lot more than a questionable point out of all this.

    Summary

    “This could’ve easily been you, Zimms. You could’ve been the one to OD before the draft. You could’ve gone to Samwell. You could’ve taken the long way to get to the NHL.”

    Or, Kent’s and Jack’s roles are reversed and Jack goes straight to the NHL and Kent somehow ends up at Samwell.

    The story begins with a draft.

    Summary

    Kent Parson wakes up the day after Cup Day in bed with a stranger. He's expecting to have hooked up with a Jack Zimmermann look-a-like. He is not expecting to see Jack Zimmermann’s boyfriend sound asleep beside him, dressed in what looks like one of his old Aces’ jerseys and nothing else.

    Kent stares. And stares. And stares some more. Completely eloquently, for the third time that morning, he says, “What the fuck.”

    --

    Or, Kent Parson swaps places with an alternate version of himself who happens to be madly in love with one Eric R. Bittle. It goes about as well as you'd expect.

    Summary

    “I don’t know why the fuck you had to keep your stash in my bag,” he snarls out after a heady moment. “They think I helped you, fucking...” overdose? Kent’s shaking. His adrenaline has nowhere to go and he hates it and he won’t look anywhere but the floor. "It’s a good thing that’s the only shit they found. They might hold me from the draft, if they find anything else - incriminating.” He laughs, cruelly. “Nobody's ever OD’d on pills like this in the League before. They don’t know what to do with it.”

    OR: Within two weeks, Jack overdoses, drops out of the draft, and pushes Kent of out his life. Within two weeks, Kent says a lot of things that he means to his best friend in a way he regrets, becomes a Las Vegas Ace, and starts on the long process of moving on. In between, Kent remembers that things weren't always like this - they used to be good together.

    Summary

    Sometimes I delete scenes for pacing but I still like them. Sometimes I write alternate points of view to get a feel for the characters.

    These scenes may be less well edited than main stories, but I didn't want to just trash them and I thought they added to the over all narrative. That said, if you see typos and want to tell me, I'm happy to go back and fix them. I'd just rather have the large amount of work I throw at my beta not include these.

    (Even though my series name is from a Rachel Platten song, Kent says the rest of the series has to be from Britney.)
