    Summary

    “My true love will have hair the color of yellow apples,” and Jack Zimmermann will take a bite from the forbidden fruit, juice running down his chin. “My true love will be exactly five feet and six-and-a-half inches tall,” and he will chew a leaf from a tree of that same height. “My true love will be as sweet as sugar and sharp as lemon,” and he will drink half a glass of Great-Aunt Cathy’s lemonade, waiting until the last dregs of sugar hit his tongue. “And if a single one of these things is not to be, then let it be known—my true love shall not be he.”

    (He knows in his bones that this spell won’t ever come true. After all, his true love isn't real, and if he’s not real, then the curse can’t take him. That’s the whole point.)

    --

    Or, a Practical Magic AU. Wherein Jack Zimmermann must deal with family curses, hockey legacies, accidental manslaughter, Kent Parson’s obstinate death wish, and a snarky Southern kitchen warlock who won’t mind his own damn business.

    Summary

    “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.)

    Summary

    In 2009 Kent "living Taylor Swift song" Parson goes first in the draft, moves to Nevada, and starts an NHL career that includes one Stanley Cup win, one league lockout, a lot of media manipulation, bad blood with several teams, a captaincy, big city politics, and the pressure that comes with some questionable sponsors for a club located in the gambling heart of the United States.

    Meanwhile, the Las Vegas Aces learn how to work around the ghost of Jack Zimmermann.

    (Not literally.)
