Dancing with the Stars!au where Bitty switched to dancing after having to give up figure skating and now he’s like an alternate dance coach or something. Jack goes on the show during the off season as a Georgia-approved attempt to make him seem more human and less robot. It works partially. He’s just as intense as he is on the ice but he’s not as talented and clips of him stepping on his partner’s toes and getting chirped for it seem to doing their job if what he can glean from the internet is accurate. He was originally paired with a girl but half way through the season she accidentally hurts something and Bitty was the first person they could get to fill her place for the next episode. Jack isn’t out but Bitty is and as long as Jack doesn’t mind dancing with a guy Bitty is okay taking the girl’s role. Maybe this will be the exposure he needs to get his own contestant next season. Either way they end up working together for an episode and they light it up. Bitty reworks the routine both to fit him and into something Jack isn’t struggling to do and it’s his best dance score-wise to date. Before his scores were passable but weren’t likely to get him through to the final couple of weeks but with the way he danced with Bitty he could go all the way. Naturally after a night like that when they try and find him a replacement female partner he says no and that he’d rather stick with Bitty. This is only partially due to his scores and more to do with the fact that he actually likes Bitty rather than his previous partner. They got along fine but there wasn’t that spark of connection that Jack has with Bitty. So Bitty stays with Jack for the rest of the season and they light it up. Bitty has a knack for devising devilishly simple routines that show off all of Jack’s best qualities and his hard earned dancing skills without being beyond his level and allowing the audience to connect with him on an emotional level. Which is a feat considering this is Jack we’re talking about. Bitty is also one of the best dancers that Jack has ever seen and he’s constantly impressed by what Bitty can do on his own when Jack isn’t holding him back. Needless to say they make it all the way to the finale while at the same time falling in love with each other. Bitty maybe has the never fall for a straight boy while providing interview footage though the editors thankfully cut that part out. At the end of the show, Jack and Bitty say goodbye and Jack makes noises about getting Bitty to a Falconers game once the season starts but both of them are pretty sure they’re not gonna see each other again. They say bye for a final time after one last late night practice and Jack heads out to bed while Bitty stays to just practice one last thing but on his way out Jack realizes just how much he cares for Bitty and then he runs back into the room and kissing happens. And then the next day they have to dance in the finale and it’s a thing and they’re on fire and they don’t kiss on stage cause public but it’s a very close thing. And look, idk if they win b/c I wanna be realistic but they probably win b/c Jack can never have enough silverware. And then they both go home and date and everything is good.
it’s just us, and a couple of pets in our one bedroom apartment. We’re always so happy to be together. We’ve become each other’s best friend. i read you books and we cook meals together. Our brains are filled with love. Dancing in the kitchen quietly.
“A lot of times, when people say Hip-Hop, they don’t know what they’re talking about. They just think of the rappers. When you talk about hip-hop, you’re talking about the whole culture and movement. You have to take the whole culture for what it is.” Afrika Bambaataa
