Sometime in January when the falconers are flying cross country for a roadie and Jack is sitting quietly staring at the clouds out the window, the thought of his future with Bitty slips casually into his mind. That in itself isn’t unusual. He thinks about Bitty a lot and brainstorms cute things that might make him laugh, but for some reason this time it’s more of a calm, assured feeling of I’m Going to Marry This Boy. It isn’t scary. It isn’t surprising. It isn’t even sudden. It’s a quiet moment of happiness, of accepting that yes he gets to have this and knowing he wants to keep this for the rest of his life. That is the moment Jack decides that someday, however far into their future it may be, he’s going to ask Bitty to marry him.
Ok so I know that the general consensus is that Jack is a low key sugar daddy and that Bitty is flustered and somewhat embarrassed by the money that is spent on him (like “Jack you can’t spend this much money on me it’s ridiculous!)
But consider: Bitty is a Fashion Hoe and loves being able to own actual designer clothes.
Picture Eric Richard Bittle, with an extensive collection of men’s Louboutins flats, silk French cut shirts, fitted custom Italian suits and a few Prada sunglasses.
His most prized possession is a Valentino tux that Jack got him for his birthday to wear to a black tie event for the NHL.
And like, Bitty is always looking Fierce, and when Jack and Bitty are out, and they make appearances together, designers start to notice Bits.
That’s how his career as a fashion model begins.
He gets approached by a Vogue exec at an event and at first he thinks it’s about Jack but the guy is like “no, we want YOU.”
And he gets some advice from Alicia and ultimately just goes for it.
He doesn’t walk very often because of his height, but he is on the cover of Vogue Italia and GQ and he is the face of Armani’s Fall collection and he becomes a close friend of Christian Louboutin.
He ends up being one of the first male model to wear stilettos for a Louboutin collection and it goes viral.
BEYONCÉ retweets a pic of the ad with the caption “he did that” and Bitty keels over.
Bitty has brunch with Alicia,Tyra Banks, and Heidi Klum on a regular basis. This is of course where he is convinced to be a judge on the revival season of Americas Next Top Model and comes on as a guest judge a few times on Project Runway.
Eric and Jack have had lunch with Tim Gunn.
Jack, of course couldn’t be happier because now everyone gets to see how beautiful his boyfriend is.
And, when Bitty gets to the point where he has his own collection out, Jack is the photographer for the campaign.
Bitty doesn’t need Jacks money to buy designer clothes anymore.
Crutchie has to go write the piece about the championship game
Jack warms up with his hat on backwards and his sleeves rolled up and Crutchie dies inside
Jack does the finger gun thing before his first at bat and Crutchie dies even more
Crutchie doesn’t even like baseball.
It’s raining and cold and windy and doesn’t feel like spring
it’s either moving really slow or super fast and rarely seems to be in between
It’s not super complicated but it isn’t exactly fun to watch either
but Jack kind of makes it worth it because he makes it look so easy
(plus he’s really cute and Crutchie’s never seen him in a baseball uniform before and it’s weirdly attractive)
And then it’s bottom of the ninth, Jack’s last at bat, and their team is down by two and there’s a man on second but that means Jack need a home run to get into extra innings and he’s good but he’s only hit one home run all season
Crutchie gets really into it and ends up cheering really loudly
“C’mon, Jacky! You can do it!”
And Jack makes brief eye contact with Crutchie and smiles and Crutchie dies again because hot damn that boy has a nice smile
And then Jack gets a strike
and another strike and a ball
and it’s making Crutchie die inside ‘cause now he’s really into the game
so he yells again and Jack winks at him this time and mouths something
which was supposed to be “wait for it” but Crutchie doesn’t get it so he just smiles and nods
And then Jack narrows his eyes and Crutchie cannot handle how cute he looks when he focused
and the ball comes and Jack hits it and it’s going going going gone
and Jack pretty much just jogs the bases, not stopping but slowing down to wink at Crutchie again because lbr, Jack is the biggest flirt with everybody always
and then they go into extra innings and basically it’s kick butt time
Jack’s team does the things where it’s like as soon as somebody does something well everybody is doing amazing
and they’re like
fuck yeah, we’re gonna win this thing
and they end up winning by like four runs and they all know it started with Jack’s home run
and Jack’s hat gets knocked off while they’re celebrating winning states and gets put back on backwards and Crutchie cannot handle the Baseball Hot™
and so of course Jack has to come over to Crutchie and probably lean against the fence and Crutchie is stuttering and trying to interview him but Jack is flirting
and you know that video of Rami Malek where that guy compliments his eyes? This one?
That giggle is what Crutchie does when Jack compliments him
which makes Jack laugh because wow that boy is bad at being subtle and wow is it cute
And somebody from the team probably comes over and tries to pull Jack away but he shoos them away because now making Crutchie giggle like that again is the main thing on his mind
so he flirts like there’s no tomorrow and Crutchie is blushing and giggling and Jack is both very self satisfied and very falling in like
and he ends up inviting Crutchie to come with to the team pizza dinner thing after the game under the pretense of letting him talk to more of the team
but pretty much it’s Jack slyly getting Crutchie’s number and favorite foods and stuff like that while the rest of the team (probably most of the rest of the gang except Dave Kat and Saz who’re also newspaper) watches in amusement at the obliviousness of the small blond school reporter
and then they’re totally Jack’s wingmen in a group chat while Jack is texting Crutchie
and the result is a super awkward but cute coffee shop date and a super cute but awkward relationship
(that gets better fast because Jack likes making Crutchie giggle and blush but he also needs to know that Crutchie is comfortable and good at all times)
and basically Crutchie ends up really liking baseball and goes to all the games

in London visiting a couple of friends and just having a little holiday for
yourself. The Maynards and Josh had very kindly offered to let you stay over at
their place. You really appreciated their kindness, but the lack of space was
starting to get a bit uncomfortable. You were rooming with Jack, since the both
of you had been friends for the longest time.
You had cooked
them a nice dinner, and was in the midst of clearing up. The boys really don’t
get a lot of proper home cooked meals so you wanted to treat them. And they also
clearly didn’t know very much about cleaning up. You took it in turns to teach
the boys how to look after themselves and keep the pests away. Today was Jack’s
turn. He barely knew how to clean a plate well. “Jack. Don’t just put the
dishes in the dishwasher will you? At least give it a little rinse.”
point of the bloody dishwasher then?”
broccoli and chicken skin stuck on it Jack”, you pointed out. Huffing, he
pulled the plate back out to rinse it. You gave him directions to rinse the
other dishes as well. When he tried to get soap onto the sponge, it ended up
flying right into your eye.
“Shit. You okay
(Y/N)?” he asked laughing.
“You idiot! I’m
gonna go blind now!” you exaggerated. He laughed, helping you to wash the soup
out of your eyes. You felt goose bumps form on your arm as his body was pressed
against yours, bending around you. He had one hand holding your hair back, out
of your face, while the other was helping you wash the soap out. You blinked
the water out of eyes, finally able to open your eyes and see clearly again.
Stepping back, you noticed Jack’s eyes widen considerably, and he tried to
awkwardly clear his throat.
“Uh (Y/N)? Erm
you’re uh-you’re not wearing a bra”, he trailed off awkwardly. You stood there,
stunned, as your cheeks burned.
“Well yeah I
mean I never wear bras at home.”
“It’s just uh I
can, I can see everything” he tried to get his point across.
looked down to realise that the water had made your t-shirt pretty much see-through and it was sticking to your bare chest. The cold water was also
making your nipples poke through the thin t-shirt.
into the kitchen then and his gaze immediately fell on your chest. “Woah (Y/N)!”
jumped in front of you to protect your nakedness from his brother. “Don’t look
that racket about?” Josh called, joining in.
“Oh my god! Get
out all of you”, Jack wasn’t sure why either, but his face held a deep blush.
“Erm I think
I’ll just go change then”, you mumbled, trying to manuver around the three
boys, while awkwardly covering your wet chest.
“Woah okay what
did I miss?” Josh’s eyes widen as he took in the view of your soaking figure,
that was quite well on display for them all.
“Stop perving will you?” Jack was flustered by time, but also wanted to make sure the boys did not see anymore than they had too.
“I think Jack
got lucky mate”, Conor sniggered. Josh and Conor high-fived on Jack’s behalf,
while the main man in question turned a bright shade of red.
That earned the boys a couple of whacks from Jack.
into his room where you were getting changed, just as you had put on his guns
‘n’ roses t-shirt. “Don’t mind do you? I can’t exactly walk around like, that”
you asked him, referring to your exposed chest.
better on you anyway”, his eyes lit up as he smiled at you. His gaze lingered
on you a little longer than usual, but you couldn’t tear your eyes away from
your eyes in confusion as you heard shuffling coming from the door of his
bedroom. Walking over, you swung the door open, only to have Josh and Conor
stumble through. In their wake, they had pushed you down with them lying on top
of you. Their combined weight was definitely more than you could handle. From
your position on the floor you could see Jack huffing as he made his way over
to pull the guys off you. Well, he more like kicked them off you. “What the
hell are you doing?”
The duo looked
at each other, then you, and back at Jack. “We just thought y’all’d be getting
down and dirty. Ya know,” Conor spoke first as he started to make inappropriate
gestures with his hips and hands.
“Oh Jack don’t
tell me you’ve been able to resist?” Josh teased.
heated up for what might have been the millionth time that day. “Just get out
will you? And stay away from my room”, he added. “Sorry ‘bout that”, he
when have we ever let something like this make things awkward between us?” you walked
over to him and wrapped your arms around him. You felt his body relax against
yours, as you both moved over to his bed, where you spent the rest of the night
watching random videos and reliving your most embarrassing moments.
