    Summary

    A name-on-wrist soulmate AU where being outed by a same-sex name is still newsworthy if you're in professional sports and is a very real concern for some NHL players. Despite the shifting attitudes, no one in the sport has ever come out publicly.

    Tyler has always felt relieved that 'Jamie' could be a male or female name, it makes hiding his sexuality a lot easier. Jamie's not been so lucky.

    Bookmark Notes:

    Jamie thinks all his life that if anyone found out that his soulmate is a guy, the world will take away hockey from him. To Jamie, hockey is everything.
    Tyler wants nothing more than to have someone who'll love him for him.

    They come into this with different baggage. Jamie is resentful of "having to hide" (there's a lot of kind of internalised homophobia there), as well as resenting Tyler for thoughtlessly homophobic shit he said when he was younger. Tyler is elated to have found his Jamie, but hurt by feelings of rejection (since Jamie goes hot and cold on him) which tie into his parents and sisters kind of rejecting the part of Tyler that acknowledged that the name Jamie could reference a person with any gender. The rejection gets worse when the Bruins trade him to Dallas. And then Jamie makes it complete by telling Tyler they can't be together yet because Tyler would out them and take hockey away from Jamie.

    Jamie acts like a complete dick to Tyler at times, bordering on emotionally abusive but for me, personally, not quite ticking over into it [for long] because as soon as Jordie or Tyler or someone else calls him out on it, Jamie apologises and tries to do better by Tyler. He's unlearning a lot of shit, and while that doesn't excuse his behaviour, it explains it and allows for a little more forgiveness and patience.
