    Summary

    The fucked up thing is that this isn’t the kind of world where you can ‘not believe’ in soulmates; they’re a scientific fact. There have been studies, there’s a science dedicated to it - Alignment Science, which is just about the biggest heap of bullshit Alex has ever heard - and it is literally just how the world works.

    Nobody has been able to adequately explain to him, however, how you end up with your soulmate’s name in your subconscious when you’re born, or why this is the way you have to get it out.

    *

    Alex doesn't believe in soulmates, and Henry doesn't believe in the likelihood of finding his. Enter: coffee shops.

    Summary

    It’s a whole new season for Samwell men’s hockey, with plenty of new difficulties. Dex is struggling to stay on top of things as their newly minted captain, while also navigating new territory in his and Nursey’s relationship – which is so good, and sometimes even wonderful, but still just a lot. Meanwhile, something is definitely up with Whiskey, and it’s either got something to do with that cute boy in his statistics class, or the increased attention from those NHL scouts. Either way, Dex thinks he just might know how to give Whiskey a push in the right direction. Sometimes, the best way to take care of yourself is by having others to care for, too.

    Still, it’s one tough season, filled with expectations to meet, traditions to uphold and an unexpected abundance of scones. Between classes and practice and kegsters, there’s only so much time to stop and think and feel. As Dex and Whiskey continue on their own paths, their journeys often intertwining in moments of friendship and trust, they both find out what it really means to have someone’s back, but also how difficult it can be to stay true to yourself. What happens when you need to make a choice between who you are, and who you’ve always wanted to be?

    Summary

    It shouldn’t be that big of a deal. Dusty windows and bare oakwood floors, a kitchen tucked into the back wall. Stairs traveling up and out of sight. Bedrooms.

    But Henry’s arms are around him, and it feels like it’s a spring afternoon in Brooklyn.

    It feels-

    Like Alex is moving in with his boyfriend, and they’ve got a home together now, and he’s starting to live for himself, not anybody else. It’s his heart spilling with the sun onto every surface, lighting the whole place up, making it sing, and-

    Alex thinly avoids slamming the moving box onto the ground, but it doesn’t matter either way, because he’s taking Henry’s face in his hands and kissing him.

    (or: the one where alex and henry make a life together.)

    Summary

    He draws a smiley face on Henry’s cheek with sunscreen and snorts when Henry rolls his eyes; he’s propped up on his elbows now, tilting his head up obediently to allow Alex better access for his ministrations, and the sun is making his eyes obscenely blue. Alex feels like he either wants to write poetry about them or an angry letter to whoever was in charge of genes in the Royal family; how the fuck did they let Henry have all this power? Who thought that was a good idea?
