Bitty loves Seattle as much as a southerner can love a city that barely sees the sunshine, and he loves his boys, but god bless it if he doesn’t cross his fingers and toes every year hoping to get picked up by a Metropolitan team so he can at least live on the same coast as Jack.
For a few blissful months every year, Bitty gets his husband back; and promptly does none of what he’s planned to do with said husband.
(Also, point-of-order, Jack’s three-year, 1.2 million a year, Falconers contract, is on the lower end of the spectrum. The average (2016) NHL salary is around 2.9 mil a year, meaning Jack went pretty cheap for someone being scouted by so many teams. Did our beloved Canadian hockey robot turn down mad-money elsewhere to sign with the Falconers? Probably.)
They’re both snuggled up together in a rare moment of post-season calm. Neither are keen to move any more than the absolutely have to; tucked into lopsided couch cushions while the television plays split-screened between another film missed in theaters and the NHL Network.
It’s been a long, hard-fought season for them both: the Falconers knocked out of the playoffs in the second round, the Schooners barely making a dent in the first. Combine that with their newfound ‘chronic’ injuries and Bitty is happy to just lie here, mindlessly groping any part of Jack he can reach: he’s currently got a handful of pec, while Jack alternates between Bitty’s ass and lower back. It’s not arousing at all, just comfortable; until Jack’s wandering fingers hit a sore spot.
I’m 100% sure we’re going to have yoi s2 announced soon but I’m still not over the fact Yuuri and Victor are living together in St Petersburg WOW
for the first two weeks, they’re inseparable? I mean they’re literally so excited to live together (and to be together after some time apart due to Nationals probably)
they go everywhere together, to the practice, grocery shopping, walking Makkachin, sightseeing (Victor is so happy to share his city with someone he cares about!)
Victor gets a heart attack every time he enters a room and sees Yuuri there. Yuuri making tea in the kitchen. Yuuri on the sofa scrolling through his phone. Yuuri in the bathroom brushing teeth. Yuuri at the morning wearing Victor’s old t-shirt. Yuuri sleeping beside him.
just Yuuri looking as he belongs there, it kills Victor in the best way possible
Yuuri never misses a chance to see Victor’s proper practice because he’s admired him all of his life and he can’t get enough of that. it feels weird at first, watching Victor falling and doing boring routine exercises but he knows that this Victor, who makes Yakov mad ten times a practice and searches for Yuuri after every nailed jump just to blow him a kiss is much more wonderful than the distance living legend that looked at him from all the posters
Yuuri was never so inspired by Victor as he is now and he can’t wait to win Worlds to show him just how much
Victor feels exactly the same way about Yuuri, he’s never worked so hard before but he just wants to prove to the whole world that Yuuri is the best thing that happened in his life
it’s the constant competition during their training sessions too, about who will nail more jumps and do more flawless figures, and making silly bets and rewarding each other with kisses
they’re usually too tired to cook so they eat outside or order something but Victor is a morning person and he likes to get up earlier to prepare them breakfast (he sometimes takes Makkachin for a walk and buys fresh bread from around the corner)
Yuuri sometimes comes back earlier from the rink to make them something warm for dinner. he’s not that good with cooking but living in Detroit teached him some basic surviving skills and he feels a bit guilty about Victor spending twice as much time on ice
it’s not always honeymoon, of course, there’s always something stupid to get irritated and argue about and they can both be really stubborn when it comes to it but their silent days never last longer than a couple of hours
(they always say sorry before going to sleep even if they’re still a bit angry)
Yurio hates when they’re arguing because the next day they’ll be even more affectionate than usual and it’s already hard to focus since Yuuri trains in Petersburg
the closer the competition the louder Yuuri’s anxiety is and Victor gets nervous both for Yuuri and because he’s afraid he’ll not have the comeback he imagined and they’re both just tired
if things between them get too tense one of them will go for a walk to calm down and come back with flowers while the other will prepare something hot and sweet to drink so they could sit together and try to talk about it even if they’re rubbish in admitting their worries and fears
it always comes to the simple fact they are having the best time of their lives and they’ll never say it aloud but neither of them imagines it could ever come to end
woah it’s so long and I’m only getting started remember you may always request more
When the paladins are talking about foods they miss back on Earth it devolves into a huge fight over which type of fry is better. There is a lot of yelling; things are thrown. Coran and Allura are baffled.
