    Summary

    After weeks of dedicated checking clinics, numerous practices, shinnys, team meals, and a handful of games, it’s a miracle it didn’t happen sooner. Bittle poofs away, leaving behind an oversized OYO figure with ‘15’ painted on the back of it’s tiny, red Samwell jersey.

    Jack stares at the toy for a full minute before nudging him with the tip of his skate. Distantly he can recognize he’s breathing harder than he should be, his own heartbeat ringing in his ears.

    “Bittle, c’mon, we have to be out of here in an hour,” Jack pleads, annoyed at the tightness in his throat. “Please?”

    _______

    In order to save your intended from a cursed eternity, you have to make peace with your personal demons. Jack Zimmermann has always been afraid of finding his soulmate for exactly that reason.

    Summary

    In which Jack doesn't find the courage to confess his love at graduation and Bitty only complicates things by becoming the first out player in the NHL.

    ________

    In the end, it’s pretty anticlimactic. The Falcs are defending divisional champions and the Schooners are coming out of an extremely rough rebuild year with the third worst record in the league. Providence pulls out a 3-1 win in regulation, the only Seattle goal belonging to Eric; a gorgeous snipe in the third that had Jack reflexively cheering from the Falconers bench — something Jack knows immediately will be a highlight more vaulted than the goal itself.

    At the end of regulation, Jack hangs back to catch Bittle before he's ushered off the ice, pulling him into a tight hug that makes the remaining Schooners fans go wild. “Good game, Bits,” he knocks his helmet against Bittle’s and tries to ignore the immediate camera flashes. This was always the plan: two marketing departments eager to dominate the news cycle; It isn't hard to fake enthusiasm because right now Eric Bittle is a perfect amalgamation of Jack’s two favorite things in the whole world: hockey and handsome blondes.

    “Great game, Jack,” Bitty laughs.

    Summary

    Eighteen years ago, Samwell suffered the tragic loss of one of its most promising young athletes. Ever since, rumors have circulated that the school is haunted by the ghost of Eric Bittle. At least, that’s the only way anyone can seem to explain why the locker rooms smell like freshly baked apple pie on game days instead of the usual, omnipresent hockey funk.

    Now, in the twilight of his career, Jack Zimmermann is facing his own mortality and the last item on his bucket list: return to Samwell and disprove the rumor that his long-dead boyfriend is haunting Faber Memorial Rink.
