    Summary

    They collapse on the bed after, panting and facing each other, legs tangling. Nicky reaches up to gently push a sweaty curl off Joe’s forehead, thumb sliding down to sweep across his cheekbone.

    The tenderness of it brings a lump to Joe’s throat. He knows he shouldn’t push this but he can’t help it: he slides an arm around Nicky’s waist and pulls him a little closer to kiss him, much softer but somehow more desperate than the ones they’ve just shared.

    Nicky pulls back first, but doesn’t go far, resting their foreheads together. They share breath, and Joe thinks about saying it then, just to alleviate some of the ache in his chest. ‘I love you’ he wants to say. Or even just, ‘Stay for a little longer this time.’

    Or: The friends with benefits AU but they're immortal idiots so it's lasted centuries.

    Summary

    A dam bursts inside Nicky, and he is so swept away in the tide of his relief he admits everything. “I meant it,” he says. “Of course I meant it, I’ve fallen in love with you. Let me keep you. Let me stay with you. Marry me, Joe.”

    “I thought I would spend my nights in darkness,” Joe tells him, and Nicky knows this about him, too, that he will not give a straight answer when a poem would do. “I thought I’d live on a pale shadow of what you’ve made me feel. But you – your smile could light up the darkest night, Nicolò. Your heart is so sweet, my love, you’ve captured mine so easily. I’ll stay with you for as long as you’ll have me.”

    Nicky would blame the wine, he would blame the summer breeze, the beautiful view, temporary insanity, anything, but it would be a lie and he’s an honest man. If he’s drunk on anything, it’s Joe. If anything makes him shiver, it’s Joe. If there is any beautiful view, it’s Joe’s eyes, bright with tears and smiling at him. If he’s insane, it’s only love.

    OR: The one where Joe and Nicky get married after knowing each other for two weeks.

    Summary

    “This guy is as boring as bread,” Jack says to his empty living room, pointing his fork at his television. It’s still the beginning of the show and when Connor announces that today’s bake will be a brie and date loaf bread Jack actually groans.

    He isn’t sure why he keeps watching though. Connor goes through cooking some sauces and happily narrates everything with little interjected stories about his family. Standard cooking show shit. If Jack watches a little too closely when Connor pushes his sleeves up to knead the bread it’s only to watch the technique more carefully, that’s all.

    Summary

    It’s not a curse.

    Except, somehow, he managed to be so fucking happy and so stupidly in love with his best friend that the universe decided to basically handcuff them together for the foreseeable future.

    It feels like a curse.

    Summary

    Alex Wennberg has spent his career on a team with his best friend and roommate, William Karlsson, but thanks to the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft, Will is now in Las Vegas, and Alex is left alone in Columbus, floundering. He thinks that he's playing it off well, but his teammates have noticed.

    Two of them have, anyway.

    Boone Jenner and Ryan Murray invite him into their home and their life, and now Alex doesn't feel lonely anymore. At least not in the exact same way.
