No problem! Who could refuse really cute Davekats in pose E anyway :) what about pose c for body and faces a3 for any partner of choosing and b6 for Roxy! (I absolutely adore the way you draw her but totally get if you're not in the mood too!)
So what if you were born knowing the time you realised your Soulmate was your Soulmate, like not the time you met but the time you realised it was them?
Bitty was born knowing the time 8:45am
It was a pretty common time of day so he always knew the likelihood of him finding them anytime soon was pretty low
Come on, 8:45 was train times, the first bell before 9am classes, and so on. Times when you meet people
Maybe once he was older and 8:45 would be the time he went to work, that’s when he was going to realise that that coworker he was close to was the love of his life
So when he got to Samwell and his orientation for Hockey started at 8:45 he wasn’t surprised.
In fact, it felt a little like a joke to be honest
But he couldn’t help but carefully watch his new teammates to see if any of them seemed likely.
He found they all had something he really liked, but all platonic. Besides, they all had their own soulmates already.
Well most of them, the team’s Captain, Jack Zimmerman, seemed to have found his soulmate in hockey. If that was even possible.
In fact, that’s a common chirp amongst the Hockey bros
So Bitty resigned himself to the fact that he wouldn’t find his SO anytime soon
As time passed every so often Bitty would think that maybe at 8:45, just before a 9am lecture he would realise it was that guy who sat next to him and he’d rush over
And as he grows closer to Jack he started to think “What if it were a trip back from Annie’s with coffee I’d realise it was him?”
As much as he tries to suppress his growing feelings for Jack (Because it obviously wasn’t him) he can’t help but hope and fall for him
Then in Jack’s final year, one day while they’re making breakfast at 8:40 they somehow end up on the discussion of soulmate times.
It’s rude to ask people who haven’t met their SO’s time but Bitty is chatting with Jack, Shitty and Lardo, Ransom and Holster, who have each other.
“So how did you guys know for sure it was them?”
“Well who else are you going to be hanging out with at 4:20am?” Shitty laughs.
“I needed glitter in the next thing I know Shits has three different colours and it was suddenly oh so clear.” Lardo explains at Bitty’s raised eyebrow
“Ours was 4:53pm. Pretty random but like, in the middle of the day. It could literally have been anything that made us realised.” Ransom mumbles
“Then how did you know?” Bitty asks
“Rans kept almost missing his 5pm lectures because he always napped at 4, so I always woke him up around 10 to 5, and one time he said ‘what would I do without you?’ and we just knew.” Holster grinned at Ransom.
“The eco system would fail” Ransom said soppily.
“Y’all are lucky, 8:45 is pretty much a time when you see people. Nothing spectacular happens then, and it’s just such a common time! - Jack, could you turn off the timer?”
The timer had gone off and instead of turning it off Jack just stared at Bitty.
“Jack?” Bitty asked as he turned to turn the time off on the oven, only to notice the time display on the cooker.
8:45am flashing at him
“Oh.” He looked up at Jack. Who was staring straight back at him. “Oh.”
“Do you, uh, wanna go to Annie’s for a coffee?” Jack asked hesitantly.
“Sure.” Bitty is obviously in shock but also so freaking happy because Jack in love with hockey Zimmerman is his soulmate
