(Thank you so much!!! I really really appreciate that awhh :) And now, here’s some NHL bfs nurseydex + “just…come back alive, okay?” for @the-amazing-frozen-densi-shipper !!!)
It’s kind of incredible. It’s kind of terrifying. Dex had been playing with Nursey for four years and now. Now, he looks around the locker room and it’s new and it’s different but it’s his and he still isn’t used to it. He hadn’t even, really, planned to sign until halfway through his junior year when Jack Zimmerman mentioned–in passing, but in that earnest, intense voice that made Dex realize he was serious–that he thought Dex had a chance at playing in the NHL. Initially, his plan was to graduate with a comp sci degree, enter the–extremely lucrative–field by fixing computers or something, and ultimately settle down, have kids, grow old, whatever.
“At the rate you’re improving,” Jack had said, gesturing with a gloved hand, spraying soap and water on Bitty, who was drying dishes next to him. “I think you could have a chance at signing. You’re definitely good enough now to start thinking about camps.” Dex had dropped his pen then, looking up from his notes and textbooks.
“What?” Jack turned to face him, eyebrows raised, slightly alarmed.
“Sorry, you weren’t planning on playing hockey after college, huh?” Dex knew his eyes were wide, face flushed.
“I uh. I hadn’t really thought about it?” He said honestly, rubbing the back of his neck. “I didn’t really think I was good enough.” Dex had always imagined Chowder trying to get into the NHL, really.
“Oh!” Jack had exclaimed and dove into the intricacies of choosing a team. Soon, there were scouts patrolling their games and, by the time he graduated a year and a half later, he had the keys to an apartment in D.C. and a Washington Capitals jersey emblazoned with the name “Poindexter”.
Can you believe it? I never thought it would be George to be the most upset about Lucy’s leaving.
I understand Lockwood would obviously have a hard time– I expected him to even possibly break– but no, like his sister’s death, he was able to keep hold and handle it to himself.
However when Lucy sees George back again, the few first words he says to her includes nasty sarcasm and rude comments… It obviously affected him a lot and he went through sadness and anger– showing bitterness to Lucy later on.
But just think about it, George probably sees Lucy as a sister.
