Zimbits Ice Dance AU
(see part two for the other characters)
I think I talked about this in the tags once but listen:
As much as a powerful freestylist jack would be (like his jumps would be huge), he would be such a beautiful ice dancer. He’d be like this large Russian coach I had for a while. He’d be so sturdy and probably would have a relatively stiff frame (at first? Maybe being in partnered w bits would change that a little?). But the main attraction would be his edges. His knee bend would be so deep and his edges would just rip beautifully. People would definitely swoon hearing him skate down the ice cause it was all rip, no toe. His turns would be so deep and smooth and he’s just have this quiet but strong graceful presence on the ice
He probably had a really good partner for a while (Kent maybe? Let’s pretend same sex ice dance partners are a thing?) but after his overdose leading up to something big (team USA? Some other big event?), they had to split up and Kent got a new partner since jack was out. So now that jack’s back he’s looking for a partner and I’m sure lots of people came to try out w him but none of them had that good of a connection w him or they were too intimidated.
And then, enter bitty. Bittys probably still a freestylist but maybe he started learning ice dance (at first only for that triple gold medal but he actually likes it more than he thought) but he’s still in the testing process (maybe he’s almost done? Just a few gold dances left?). When he moves north and starts coming to the rink, his coach is trying to pair the two of them up. He tries to say no, that he’s not nearly good enough, that he’s only tested and doesn’t know how to compete it. They compromise and ask jack to at least go through bittys last tests with him (I guess he’s been learning the ladies steps or maybe you’re allowed to switch idk this isn’t real obviously) and they turn out to mesh really well together. Like maybe they just naturally had matching extensions or maybe they’re just both really adaptive. Who really knows?
