okay but what about a fic where nursey plays for the new york islanders and dex plays for the new york rangers so they lowkey have a rivalry going on there and they just… always run into each other outside of hockey? like they run into each other grocery shopping and walking their dogs and at bars and stuff? and it goes from being awkward to weird to chill as they go from being rivals to friends to people who lowkey constantly flirt with each other? and like it definitely features dex hating new york and missing home and nursey being like ‘nah bro this is home’ and showing him around and idk i kinda wanna write this

Dear Stranger,

Yes, you. Has anyone ever told you everything will be okay?
It may not be like we planned or hoped it would turn out but it’ll still be okay.
We might as well make it into an adventure. Come on, take a little detour today, see a different part of your city.
Ask your waitress how she’s actually doing.
Do anything to get a smile for someone else.
I don’t care what you do, just make today different. 
You may not remember what you actually do today but you’ll remember how you felt.
How it felt to just do something different.
Life is short - make the memories count.

Live a little,
