hockey is the chance of life

BUT what if Dex and Nursey kinda fall out of touch after they graduate. Sure, they’re still in the SMH group chat, but life gets busy and group chats aren’t for individual relationships, they’re for groups.

And maybe Dex gets drafted and Nurse was surprised to hear that he was even thinking about going pro because Dex was just so smart and really into programming. Sure, he’s one of the best players Nurse has ever played with, but he just never considered that he’d go pro. 

And Dex has to roll his eyes because of course he’d enter the draft if there was a chance at millions of dollars. He grew up working for scraps, he wants to have the best life possible, he wants to be worth something.

So Dex and Chowder are both in the NHL, Chowder with the Sharks (he’s so excited) and Dex with Blackhawks. Nursey coulda probably gotten drafted too, but he honestly just wanted a chill life where he doesn’t have to wake up at 5 am for morning lift and always on the ice. He loves hockey, he doesn’t want to do it for a living and end up driving himself to hate it. 

A couple years pass, Nursey gets published, Chowder is an all-star, Dex is really good, he holds his own and gets a lot of time in the box, he still likes to fight. He’s one of the most feared enforcers in the NHL after only two seasons. 

Then the invite comes in the mail for Bitty and Jack’s wedding.

Neither Dex nor Nursey is worried about it, it’ll be just like old times and they’re actually excited to see everyone again. Dex hasn’t really seen anyone from Samwell except when he plays Jack or Chowder or Whiskey who ended up going pro after one three years in college. 

The group chat is 🔥  for the first time in forever. Chipping Shitty saying he has to wear pants, reminding Rans and Holster that there won’t be a keg, asking Lardo to please not steal any of the silverware for her latest art project. It’s really nostalgic for everyone and they’re ready for the reception because it’s Eric fucking Bittle putting it on and it’s going to be amazing.  

Then Nursey sees Dex and Christ, he got bigger. His arms and shoulders are to die for and don’t get him started on this thighs. He looks like he could bench more than Nurse’s body weight and now he’s thinking about Dex holding him. 

He knew in theory that Dex would be in great shape, he’s followed Dex’s career enough to know that he’s really good. But he still saw Dex as the guy he played with for four years, as the guy he lived with, as they guy he made a habit of annoying as often as possible.

It’s not like Nurse didn’t keep up with his fitness, but he’s more of a runner and yogi now. He doesn’t have to have the extra muscle to check a guy into the boards and protect the puck, he’s cool with being 6′2″, 200 pounds, but Dex looks like he’s 6′2″ 230 of pure muscle. 

And Dex is dying a little (a lot) because Nurse looks good, like really good. His eyes are softer somehow and he has a beard, a fucking beard. He’s got laugh lines around his eyes and doesn’t look as ‘chill’ as he used to. He looks so real. 

Which isn’t great for Dex, because he always thought Nurse was attractive, but this is next level. It’s like he left Samwell and finally let his guard down. 

Both of them manage to be super awkward, Dex going for a handshake and Nurse going for a hug, and then they start fighting after about 3 seconds because it’s them.

But after a few minutes it falls back into easy chirping and conversation. Nursey tells Dex about his newest book, Dex tells Nursey about the potential for him to get traded in the off season, it’s comfortable, like coming home.

Until finally Nurse blurts out, “We were the same size at Samwell and now you have melons for arms and could probably crush me with your thighs, what the fuck.”

Dex just shrugs and smirks, “It’s chill, Nurse.”

They end up making out in a closet because Nursey can’t wait to get his hands on Dex’s ass. It’s as amazing as he thought it would be. 

Ransom and Holster find them and take pictures before running off to tell everyone that Dex and Nursey finally resolved the sexual tension. They end up using one of the pictures at their own wedding three years later. 


Ok, so this was inspired by several things… :)

I’ve been skating on and off for years and always had a fascination for figure skating. This past season I finally decided to go to a coach to develop myself further. It’s been super fun and exciting, and put skating at the forefront of my thoughts for months.

Then I came across this post and boom! - the Thorki skating AU swept me away (late to the party, as always). Not to mention I developed a fascination for Johnny Weir as well, such a wonderboy! T3T ♥

I keep thinking what Loki would skate to…and I keep going back to some dark and epic music, like Time to Die by Immediate Music (just picture Loki doing triple and quadruple Axels to that, omg). *_* Thor is of course on the hockey team and he’s a brute in sport, but a softie in life. xD And then there are different variations… in one they are brothers, in another they just meet by chance on the ice. Oh the possibilities~

Geno answered some questions from hockey fans for (Published date - April 7, 2017). Thank you so much @raindropcastle  for the help with the translation! 😇

- Evgeni, who is the best defensman in the NHL?

- Right now it’s Brent Burns from San Jose. He’s very effective on offense and he plays hard on defense. He’s having the best season of his career. Dominates in the team and in the league. Good shot, skating. It’s hard to play against him; he’s strong physically.

- Which NHL match do you remember most?

- There were enough of them, but probably Game 7 of the 2009 Stanley Cup Final against Detroit. There was tremendous pressure; we played on the road. The Red Wings were pressing us in the third period. Frankly, they outplayed us. But we scored fast goals in the first and second periods and held on to the lead. I remember a lot of excitement; how we wanted to win the Cup. Incredible emotions!

- Which Stanley Cup was heavier to raise - the first or the second?

- The first, because we lost the final to Detroit in 2008. It was very disappointing. Then we started the season badly. We were losing a lot of games, and changed the coach. However, we managed to reverse the situation. And we won game 7, though Detroit was slightly better. We played three lines in the third period, as Sid got injured. Our force was running out. If it went to overtime, we probably simply wouldn’t have had enough power. It was the most difficult victory. With the second Stanley Cup it was a bit easier. We led 2-0 in the series and matches developed in our favor.

- How do you measure Pittsburgh’s strengths in the fight for the Stanley Cup?

- It was a very busy season; there was the World Cup and last season we reached the Finals. We played a lot of matches in the last two years. But we have a good team, and the team’s makeup almost didn’t change. Young guys joined the team. They show a bright game, getting a lot of points. Jake Guentzel, for example. It’s a bit difficult to pronounce his name (smiles). These guys bring lots of speed. We have a good enough chance this season, if the injuries bypass us and we get a little bit of rest before the playoffs.

- Jaromir Jagr is already 45 years old, and he wants to sign a new contract with Florida. Up to what age would you like to play?

- It’s hard to guess, I’m only 30. I’d like to reach 40. Hockey is my life. And if you finish your career, it will become quite boring. But it all depends on your health. If your health allows, you can play for a long time. And if not, then don’t pull the last straw, don’t chase records and points. 

It happens, when hockey players suffer from concussions and it has lasting effects on their life after their career. People lose their memory. But I want my children to have a healthy dad. It’s important for an athlete to leave when it’s time.

- What was your favorite NHL team, before Pittsburgh chose you?

- I liked Colorado, as well as Detroit. I remember when the Russian Five was playing there, I was wearing a red cap. Then came the jacket with the emblem of Colorado. I loved Forsberg, Sakic, as well as Fedorov, Yzerman. At the time, it was difficult to follow the NHL, but I read in the newspapers about battles between those two teams in the playoffs. They even had had five on five fights. All of that was interesting to follow.

- Who is the best hockey player in the world?

- Sidney Crosby. I play with him, and I’ve seen a lot. Now there’s also Connor McDavid, a unique young hockey player. He shows tremendous hockey skill. So I’ll single out these two.

- You have two Stanley Cups. When you were with the national team did you make fun of Ovechkin?

- No, how can you say so? We respect each other. You see, the NHL and the national team are different things. And how can I gloat over Ovechkin? It would be very ugly. I understand how much he wants to win, his desire. You can’t joke about this.

- Is the gap between our hockey and Canadian hockey that big?

- Yes, there is a difference. Compare at least the number of hockey rinks here and there. But Russia has always been famous for individually strong players who played in small cities, and then reached big heights. Hockey in Canada is a tradition, it’s very widespread. Out of a thousand players, ten will be very good, and they will get through to the top. We have single breakthroughs, but there’s no such mass character. That’s what we need to develop, so young people will go for sports more and hang out in nightclubs less.

 - Do you began to play more accurately with age?

- I won’t say that my game has changed a lot, but with experience you get smarter. If you see a situation where a quick pass is the option and holding onto the puck isn’t a necessity - you’ll quickly pass it and won’t take an extra hit.

 - Do you often attend NBA and NFL matches?

- I rarely go see American football. We have a heavy schedule, and when the Steelers play at home, we’re on the road. But I love all kinds of sports. I go see NBA games if there’s time on the road. A couple of times I even went to Cleveland - it’s two hours away from Pittsburgh. We saw LeBron James the year he reached the Finals. They won the sixth match at home. Basketball is a very interesting sport. And it’s always interesting to watch how professionals work.

Stiles has a weird reaction to his anesthesia. He wakes up with temporary amnesia. The resulting video gets 1 million hits on YouTube in 6 hours. (Beyoncé can suck it.)

Ashes, Ashes by ShanaStoryteller

(1/1 I 2,699 I Teen)

The Sheriff gets a call at work - someone’s tried to burn down his home with his son inside.

“I thought of you coming here, and finding me dead, of another burnt out husk of a body, something else fire has stolen from you, of you having nothing left to grasp but ashes,” John can’t even call that a whimper, it’s clearly a whine as Derek’s hands tighten against Stile’s hips, as if his boy will shudder to dust at the mere mention of the possibility unless Derek’s hands can hold him into one piece, “and that thought was worse than dying.”

boys will be boys by HalfFizzbin

Schedule a parent-teacher conference with the Hales at your own risk.

Let me take care of you by LillianDeLooney

(1/1 I 3,434 I Mature)

Stiles is six months pregnant with Derek’s babies when his mate gets home as a teenager, somehow having gotten de-aged again. Their mate bond is still strong, however, and all Derek wants to do is take care of Stiles…

When the Sky Fills With Rain by BarlowGirl

(1/1 I 5,205 I Explicit)

Derek raised an eyebrow. “You know I can shop for myself, right?”

“I know you can,” Stiles said. “But I don’t think you will. So we’re gonna go to Walmart and get you a couple packs of tank tops ’cause you look really hot in those and some more t-shirts and Henleys and basically whatever you need, and I’m going to stare at you and maybe drool a little while you try them on. And then we can go to wherever you usually buy jeans and I’m going to stare at your ass while you try those on.”

“Good to know,” Derek said dryly.

Stiles grinned. “Yup. And then you can wash them in my washing machine and leave them on my couch until they stop smelling like strangers and smell like us.”

Derek absolutely did not turn red.

Or: 5 Times Stiles Took Care of Derek and One Time Derek Took Care of Stiles.

When Nothing Else Works by hannah_baker

(1/1 I 5,915 I Teen)

Sheriff Stilinski is slowly and begrudgingly accepting the fact that werewolves exist, regular bad things still do happen sometimes, and his son may or may not be dating Derek Hale behind his back.

Or, the one where having Derek Hale in his bed is the only way Stiles can get to sleep. Much to his father’s annoyance.

Puppy Separation Anxiety by KaliopeShipsIt

(2/2 I 9,188 I General)

Derek and Stiles’ three year old daughter is completely fine with Derek dropping her off at Pre-K, but has a separation anxiety induced meltdown every time Stiles does.

Naturally, Derek jumps to conclusions that couldn’t be farther from the truth if he’d tried.

The One with the Kiss Cam by nerdfightingwhovian

(1/1 I 9,224 I Teen)

While at a hockey game, which was totally Stiles’s idea, the cameramen behind the Kiss Cam think Erica and Stiles are together. Derek, right next to Stiles, has to intervene on the behalf of his mate.

Also, there might or might not be a homophobic couple who start screaming at our werewolfy hero. He also might or might not give them the cold Hale stare.

“We were all wondering if we could go see a hockey game. Erica and I really love to watch hockey, and Boyd finds it fascinating, mainly because it makes Erica blood thirsty, and their sex life is really weird. And Danny likes it and so does Kira, and she’s single and ready to mingle after her last boyfriend turned out to be less than ideal. Isaac is pretty much interested in anything that will guarantee him getting laid. And Scott and Allison just want to use the cold rink as an excuse to cuddle. And Lydia will jump at any chance to do more match and basically show off her brain to everyone within hearing distance.”
“What about Jackson.”
“Fuck Jackson.” And yeah, Derek should have expected that.

you break the mountain down by runphoebe

(1/1 I 10,655 I Explicit)

Stiles is pretty sure that it’s not normal to have a sexual awakening six years into a relationship. He’s pretty sure that’s supposed to happen at the beginning and not, you know, after you already have a mortgage together.

Stiles and Derek have been together for six years when Stiles graduates from college and moves back to Beacon Hills.

This Is Your Life, Derek Hale! by PolarisTheYoungWolf

(7/7 I 23,699 I Explicit)

I need more de-aged Derek and pregnant mate Stiles! Can you imagine de-aged teen Derek being told he has a family of his own? Like the baby(babies) are born and he’s like that for like…a weekend or maybe even a week or longer. And it’s just overwhelming and awesome and funny and teendaddy Derek trying to also be a doting husband/mate and maybe they have to go out…because the babies have chickenpox and they need the pink lotion to help with the itching(Do werewolves get chicken pox? Maybe one of the babies is human and got it in case Were’s can’t?) and Derek is torn from staying with his pups and getting something that will help their recovery? I dunno…just…de-aged daddy Derek that’s mates with Stiles is TOO cute an image!!!!

Take My Hand, Take My Whole Life Too by MereLoup

(4/4 I 82,981 I Explicit)

Derek spent too much time, walking amongst the ashes of his life and refusing to move on into the future; refusing to move past the anguish. But somewhere along the way he found purpose, rebuilt this house, found his mate, and he realized that this didn’t have to be the end, that he could continue the legacy of the Hale pack and carry on the traditions and rebuild his life. And now, in this house, with his pack, he was beginning the next generation of the Hale Pack with the most incredible mate he could have ever dreamed of.

Auston Matthews Part 1: January

It has been nearly 3 years since you were last face-to-face with Auston Matthews. 3 years ago, he was the love of your life. When graduating high school together you thought you’d both make it. Your relationship had a strong foundation built on years of friendship. Once he began traveling for hockey it became too much emotionally/mentally/physically for both of you. The split was a mutual decision and it didn’t hurt as much as you expected it to. There was still communication and support in your relationship. As soon as you found out you were a few months pregnant is when you became distant and he eventually stopped trying.

  • So right there in plain sight of everyone, Jack undoes his tie and the top buttons on his shirt and texts Bitty a selfie.
Dear Flower

I found hockey, and you, in a pretty rough period of my life.  Hockey was a great distraction, and goaltending, the last defense and the most athletic and beautiful position quickly became my favorite.  To this day, chances are decent that my favorite player on any team will be their goalie.

But it wasn’t Flower the goalie who saved me in the end.  It was Flower the person.  It was Flower the prankster, the ever smiling.  It was Flower who took everything on his back and used it as fuel.  It was the Flower who stepped aside with grace and poise for Murray, determined to stay a good teammate even when it surely hurt to feel like he was being replaced.  It was the Flower who talked openly about needing mental support from both the team and professionals, who talked openly about being nervous and anxious, it was the Flower everyone loves because that was just the person you are.

It was never about the jersey you wore.

I’m sorry you’re not on my favorite team anymore.

But you’ll always be my favorite.

Check to the Heart (Part 2/?)

Bucky x Reader

Modern day Hockey AU

SUMMARY: You are the daughter of one of the greatest hockey players to ever play the game, now as owner of the Avengers, he is bringing your childhood crush Bucky Barnes to the team.  The minute he sees you in your father’s office, you can tell by the smirk on his face he hadn’t forgot about your crush either.  This is going to be fun.

CTTH Masterlist

Hockey terms:

NHL - National Hockey League

Drop Gloves- hockey fight - Players throw off their gloves and start fighting, fighting in hockey is actually a thing.  A brilliant, amazing, thing.

Boards: walls around the rink.

Stanley Cup:  the greatest trophy in sports.

 “Wanna be?”

You don’t let your surprise show at his words.  Fixing Bucky with a smirk you look him up and down before saying, “Why have some hot friends for me?”

Bucky didn’t do as well hiding the surprise on his face,  you give him a wink and turn to walk back to your office.  As far as you were concerned he could show himself around.  You could deal with your father if he pitched a fuss.  Before you had made it a few steps away Bucky’s humor filled voice caused you to falter just a bit, “Looks like you still have those sharp teeth behind that pretty smile.”

You shut the door to your office and lean against it rubbing your face with your hands.  This was the last thing you needed.  When you were kids, the three of you were inseparable.  You had met and became quick friends.  Steve, who believe it or not was smaller than Bucky at that time, had heard you being harassed by an older boy, Brock Rumlow, he had told you girls couldn’t play hockey.  Steve not liking a boy picking on a girl, skated up to him pushing him away from you.  When Bucky saw Brock punch Steve, all bets were off.  The three boys and you dropped the gloves.  What resulted was a black eye for each boy and a missing front tooth for you, and what seemed like a lifelong bond.  

Stupid Bucky, stupid Steve, stupid memories.  You shake yourself from the memory and collect your things and head home for the evening, the season was going to start soon and you had tons to do.

AU: Uni Shawn - athlete/trainer

Requested: An imagine based on these bullet points with Shawn as a hockey player and y/n as a trainer.

Your name: submit What is this?


You grab the foam roller before re-entering the training room. Handing Steve the roller, you look around the room as a few more players are filing in, needing different things before they start to suit up and warm up for the game tonight. “You can go over there,” You tell him, pointing to the side of the room where he’ll be out of the way, so he can roll out his tight muscles.

He takes the foam roller from you, and says, “Thanks, y/n,” Before turning and heading over to the spot you told him to.

Now that he’s taken care of, you turn your attention to James who you noticed just walked in. “How’s your ankle?” You ask him, while motioning for him to take a seat on the table.

“Still sore,” He responds truthfully, while sitting down and lifting his foot up a bit so you can take a look. It still looks bruised.

“Have you been icing it?” You ask, and he nods. After moving it a bit, and taking into account his pain levels, you say, “It isn’t ideal, but I can wrap it, and you’ll be able to play tonight.”

“Thanks, y/n, you’re the best.” He tells you.

“Alright, I’ll be right back,” You tell him then you walk to the cabinet to grab the pre-wrap and tape. While you’re digging through the cabinet, wondering what happened to all the pre-wrap, you feel someone come up behind you. A hand lands on your shoulder, and he presses a kiss to the back of your head before continuing on his way. When you turn around, Shawn is already halfway across the room, greeting Steve with a handshake. You just smile and shake your head at the fact that even after all this time, he still manages to make your heart speed up when he enters the room. Returning your attention to the cabinet, you finally locate the pre-wrap, and go back to James to wrap his ankle.

Fabulous Olicity Fanfic Friday - October 20th, 2017

Happy Friday! So this is my attempt to both thank awesome fanfic writers for their amazing work and offer my recommendations to anyone who is interested. Here are the fantastic fanfic stories I read this week! They are posted in the order I read them.

The Life They Knew multi-chapter by @bytemegeekette - AU - Olicity - Felicity loved watching the happy life that her best friend had built for herself. Oliver watched his best friend reach every milestone he himself feared. An unexpected tragedy thrusts their lives together in a way neither could imagine. Could they over come their hate for each other to help fulfill the last wishes of their best friends. Loosely inspired by the movie ‘Life as We Know It

May I Be Your Shield multi-chapter by @aussieforgood and @ghostfoxlovely - She could always tell him about her day. She could always tell him anything. Except she didn’t. The woman closest to him was keeping the biggest secret of all; a dark secret, a dangerous secret.

Time for a Story multi-chapter by @smkkbert - This fic shows Olicity and their life as a (married) couple with family. Although Olicity (and their kids) are the protagonists, other characters of Arrow and Flash make appearances. YOU NEED THIS STORY IN YOUR LIFE.

Sexual relationships with any other partner are forbidden, even before you receive the contact details. Everyone who disobeys that law will be punished brutally.  Oliver and Nyssa have come to terms with that. Although they are married, Nyssa can secretly be with Sara, and Oliver can do whatever he wants to do. When Oliver decides to make changes, he falls madly in love with Felicity.

This is one of those nights.

Our Version of Events multi-chapter by @machawicket and @geneeste - Action star Ollie Queen is trying to clean up his image and land parts that require him to do more than appear shirtless while fighting stuntmen.

Little Flowers of Eloquence multi-chapter by @dettiot - After two bad relationships, Felicity Smoak has accepted that she’s not physically attractive to men.  That doesn’t mean her life isn’t good, but her friends make her realize that something is missing.  Something that might be fixed if she gives a chance to a certain newly-back-from-the-dead ex-playboy …

Two Minutes for Holding by captaintinymite (augopher)

(17/18 I 17,998 I Explicit)

There were three things college hockey players Derek Hale and Stiles Stilinski knew for certain. 1) Their lives revolved around hockey, 2) They were madly in love, and 3) Derek was so far in the closet he might never find his way out.

They’d been together for two years now, and for two years they’d been a secret with only a few people knowing about them. Yet Derek’s fear kept them from moving forward: fear of his family’s rejection, fear of his sexuality tanking his father’s career, fear of the rampant homophobia in professional sports. The ruse was growing thin.

Something had to give.

New York Mets shortstop Derek Hale was riding the high of being his team’s hero on Opening Day, only to have it come crashing down the very next day when pictures leak of him acting more than friendly with his roommate Stiles Stilinski. Now, not only is Derek outed before he wanted, but he’s also a target for more harassment and suddenly single after accusations fly over how the media caught wind of his secret relationship. And he’d thought his biggest issue during the season would be questions over a rumored contract extension and impending free agency.

To Derek Hale hockey was everything. It was the only reason he even tolerated High School and if given a choice the only thing he would be doing for the rest of his life. Some called him driven others called him fanatic.

Derek called himself determined.

Only one day a random meeting with a strangely fascinating young ice skater turns Derek’s life upside down. A odd friendship blooms between them and Derek slowly comes to realise that his life isn’t quite as simple as he thought. There might be more to life than ice hockey.

Mr. Hale seemed like a great guy and an even better teacher. He had that I-can-create-change outlook that all teachers seem to have before students eventually beat it out of them. Stiles respected that, he really did and normally he would have been all for it but the constant series of awkward boners and constant mid-class fantasies made this a little difficult.

officialrichie  asked:

thinking about kent or jack getting tradef to the others team and tbqh im., pain is good

Okay but actually can I rant about this for a sec because like? It doesn’t have to be sad.

Like I’ve seen people talk about/write fics where Kent goes to the Falcs, but what if it was the other way around? (Not that I think either team would trade Jack or Kent because they’re too valuable, but let’s ignore that for the sake of this AU.) So Jack gets sent to the Aces, and everybody who gives half a shit about hockey is holding their breath because in a way, this is Jack coming full circle. He’s back on a team with Kent, he’s on the team he would have gotten drafted to if he didn’t overdose, and he’s surrounded by a level of party culture that he hasn’t really had to confront since his addiction. Nobody knows how well he’ll handle any of these things, much less all at once.

But the Jack that goes to the Aces is not the Jack that existed back then, so he handles it surprisingly well. He isn’t on a line with Kent at first, because things change and people change and there’s just too much history to throw them back together on the ice and expect it to go well. But the Aces love Jack, even if Swoops is a little protective because Kent is his best friend, and Jack adjusts well because above all else, he’s good at hockey. They figure out a line that works for him, and he builds chemistry with the team, and it’s going well, everybody’s excited. Kent still has a lot of emotional baggage, but he’s a professional, and he’s the damn captain, so he realises he needs to leave the past in the past, and he and Jack finally talk it out and get the closure they need. Their relationship is still tentative at first, because they’re re-learning each other, but Kent is the only person who saw Jack’s struggle with self-medicating firsthand so ultimately, there’s a level of closeness there that can’t be ignored. They get more comfortable, they grow closer, and they’re better for each other this time around because they’ve grown up a lot since the Q. Plus, Jack is happy. That’s all Kent really ever wanted for him.

And Kent’s happy too, because this is it. This is what he wanted, to go pro with Jack and share a line in the NHL and maybe win a Cup or two together. And even though they aren’t linies yet and haven’t even approached the playoffs together, it’s a start, and that’s all Kent wanted. Just a chance to be a part of Jack’s life, and to see him play the sport he loves and not feel pressured to do anything but enjoy it. He knows they aren’t right for each other, not like that, but that doesn’t mean they don’t still play amazing hockey together. And it’s different than it used to be, because they’ve grown up a little and moved on a little and learned a lot, but Kent is slowly realising that different doesn’t always mean bad.

You sat at the dining room table, staring at the work you had spread across the table. You were brought from your thoughts by a soft cry. You quickly got up from your seat and walked over to the crib set up in the living room. You picked up your daughter, swaying back and forth, trying to get her to go back to sleep.

“How did I get here?” You thought to yourself. Here you were 25 years old and a single mother. You hadn’t exactly told Jordie about Emory.

Your life fell into shambles when Jordie got traded to Montreal. He came home from practice steaming. The night was filled him angrily packing and you begging him to let you come with him. He refused and he left you and his life in Dallas behind.

A few weeks later, you found out you were pregnant. You couldn’t bring yourself to tell him. He didn’t want any reminders of Dallas. It’s not like you two were trying. The baby would just be one more thing he left behind.

So here you were now, living alone and taking care of your one-year-old. The team tried to keep in contact with you, but you couldn’t risk any of them finding out and spilling the beans to Jordie. You had built a life for yourself and your daughter and you didn’t want to do anything that would even come close to ruining it. You never wanted your child to feel the heartbreak you did.

You did stay in touch with Katie, mostly against your will. You begged and pleaded with her to not tell Jamie. You knew he would run and tell Jordie the first chance he got. Eventually, she agreed, and she would visit when she could. You were happy she stayed in contact. You hadn’t really had many friends in Dallas and when you took the hockey players out of the equation, it was almost zero. She really did help when you were pregnant.

Your pregnancy was rocky. There were constant moments when all you wanted to do was call Jordie. But the voice in the back of your mind didn’t let you forget that Jordie didn’t want you to come, meaning he didn’t want you.

 But you got through it, and you were blessed with your baby girl. You couldn’t have been more in love since the moment she was born. Your heart ached every time, the small gingered hair child flashed the smile identical to the one of the love you lost. But at the same time, you were so happy she looked just like her father, it was like you had your own piece of Jordie.

You continued to rock the small baby in your arms as she fell back asleep. You stroked her hair as there was a soft knock at the door. You kissed her head as you went to open the door.

Katie pranced into your apartment, being quite extra. “How are my two favorite girls?” She asked as she rubbed Emory’s back.

 “What are you up to?” you questioned with a raised eyebrow.

 “I need a favor.” She smiled at you.

 “A favor?” you asked again as you placed Emory in her crib.

 “How do you feel about hockey games?”

 You gave her a look. “Really? What do you think?”

 “I really want you and Emory to come with me to a game, I want to introduce the little bean to hockey, it runs in her blood!”

“Katie, have you lost your mind? I just don’t think it is a good idea.” You answered moving to clean up the table.

“You used to love hockey! You could use a break!”

“I used to love a man who played hockey, there is a difference.” You responded.

We will sit in the noise bleeds. No one will see us!” she pleaded.

You knew she was going to continue until you gave in. If you sat up in the nosebleeds and left before the game was over no one would see you, you thought.

She was still rambling on about why you and Emory should come. 

“Fine. We will go.”

Katie’s face lit up as she wrapped you in a hug. “Promise you will go?”

“I promise.” You chuckled as she wrapped your pinky fingers together.

“I will see you tomorrow then! I will pick you and the little bean at 6!” she smiled as she headed for the door.

“Who are we playing anyway?” you asked with a laugh.


Your laughter stopped.

It was now 5:45 and you were pacing as you held a gurgling Emory in your arms. You had to admit she was quite a cutie in her hockey gear. Her hair was up in pigtails with little green bows and you had dug out the child size Benn jersey that sat in the back of your closet. You had come across it when you were pregnant and couldn’t help but buy it.

 You matched your daughter in your own victory green jersey and black leggings. Both of you dawning your matching white converse. The knock on the door brought you from your thoughts and you grabbed your purse. You couldn’t help the butterflies in your stomach or the nervousness running through your veins.

 It only got worse when you reached the AAC. You stood in front of the giant arena gripping onto your daughter. This was once a place you called your second home but now you couldn’t feel more out of place.

 You followed Katie inside as she flashed your tickets. You headed upstairs against Katie’s wishes to upgrade your seats. You sat down allowing Emory to bounce on your lap. You watched as the hockey players flew out onto the ice for warmups. Emory was entranced. She couldn’t take her eyes off the ice, following player to player. You followed your daughters gaze until you saw the player she was currently following. You watched as the player skated up to his brother and hugged him.

 You sighed.

 After a little while, the game started. You relaxed a bit into the second period. It was turning about to be a good game and you would be lying if you said you weren’t having a good time. You mainly were enjoying how happy your daughter was watching the sport. Katie was right, hockey ran in the girl’s blood.

 The second period was almost over when you heard Katie.

 “Shit.” She said quietly sinking in her seat.

 You looked at her quickly. “What?”

You followed her eyes to the jumbotron and there you both were, Emory standing in your lap grasping both your hands as she bounced to the music. You wanted to crawl into a hole right then and there.

 The picture switched to different fans, and Katie turned to you.

“We don’t know that they saw it. They hardly ever watch the jumbotron.” She assured you.

“I hope your right.”

You both sat in uncomfortable silence while the minutes on the clock ran down.

The moment the players were off the ice, Katie’s phone pinged. You looked over at her hoping it was some kind of coincidence.

“We are in trouble.” She simply stated after reading the text message.  

Your heart fell into your stomach. He knew, Jamie Knew. Did he put two and two together? Did Jordie know? All the questions ran through your mind and you went to stand up, running was the only thought now on your mind.

“They want to see us after the game. You can’t run from this.” She pleaded.

“Running is exactly what I am doing.” You stood up repositioning Emory on your hip. You headed for the escalators as Katie followed.

“Just Stop Y/N.” she called after you.

“Stop what Katie? I didn’t want to come to this game because of this exact reason. I tried so hard to protect her from this.”

“Protect her from what Y/N?”

“A father who isn’t in her life! I don’t want her to feel how I feel ever!”

“How would you know! You never told him! You don’t know that Jordie didn’t want her in his life! And now I am in deep shit for keeping this from Jamie. You at least owe it to me, to give it a chance. It’s time to tell them. ”

You sighed the tears brimming your eyes. Emory reached up and sloppily wiped your face, gurgling up at you.

“I guess we are meeting Daddy tonight Ems, My little secret is out of the bag huh?” You kissed her cheek. 

You allowed Katie to take you downstairs. Jamie had given her instructions to wait in a room where the team normally ate. You both sat in silence, you swore you could hear the heart beat in your chest.

Emory was getting antsy. You moved to the floor with her as she tumbled around between your legs. She was currently obsessed with your shoelaces and you stroked her hair as she on pulled them. You heard the game ending and knew it wouldn’t be long now.

The door swung open and your breathing hitched.

You saw the younger Benn brother enter the room.

“Where is she? He quickly asked Katie. She pointed towards where you sat on the floor.

All eyes were suddenly on you. You were not fond of the attention but Emory was beyond excited. She gurgled as the men approached you. Jamie sat down slowly not too far from you.

“Y/N.” he spoke.

“Jamie” you replied not knowing what else to say.

“Is this why you didn’t stay in contact with us?” he asked sadly.

“I couldn’t bring myself to tell any of you. It just hurt too much.” You looked down at your daughter.

 “You didn’t have to go through this alone, Y/N.” He answered.

 You stayed quiet as you watched your daughter tumble over to Jamie. He smiled at her and she became entranced with his shoelaces now instead.

 “She’s my niece isn’t she?” he questioned and you just nodded. 

You fell into silence once again as he played with the little girl.

“Does he know?” you suddenly asked.

“He saw you two on the jumbotron when we did, he put it together.” He answered.

You closed your eyes and stood up. He wasn’t here, so you knew you were right. He wanted nothing to do with you or your daughter.

Jamie must have read your mind. “He’s coming.”

You looked at him just as the door swung open once more.

There stood Jordie, he was obviously distraught. He was hair was still wet and his suit was crooked.

“Y/N. Where is she?” he asked. You were unable to read your demeanor.

You were still in shock when he quickly asked you again.

“Where is my daughter Y/N?”

He followed your eyes to where Jamie was sitting with Emory. Tying and Untying his dress shoes. He went to rush over to her when you suddenly found your nerve and stood in-between them.


“What do you mean no? I want to see my child.” Jordie demanded.

 You looked at Katie. “Take her please?” you commanded.

Jordie watched as Jamie picked up Emory and followed Katie from the room.

Jordie sat down placing his head in his hands.

“Why didn’t you tell me Y/N?”

“You didn’t want any reminders of Dallas. You made that very clear when you left.”

“But a kid? I would have never left you to go through this alone.”

“Jordie, you did. I begged you to come to Montreal but you refused! I would have followed you anywhere!”

“I didn’t want you to have to leave your life here!”

 “What life here Jordie! My life here was you!”

“What’s her name?”  he asked out of the blue.

You sighed and shook your head. “It’s Emory.”

“Can I meet her; Please Y/N I want to see my daughter.”

“I can’t have you in and out of her life. I won’t let her experience the heartbreak of being left behind by you.”

“I would never! I didn’t want to leave you behind either! I thought I was doing what was best!”

“And how did that turn out?” you questioned angrily throwing your arms up in defeat.

“Please let me fix this, Y/N. I will prove it to you. I will do anything.” he pleaded and you couldn’t say no.

“Fine, you can meet her.”

You both went out and found Jamie and Katie. Her uncle had already spoiled her buying her a stuffed toy from the nearby merchandise stand.

Jordie slowly approached his brother and daughter. He reached out his arms for Emory and she leaned into him. Her curiosity peaked by his beard. She began running her small fingers through it, gurgling at him as if to ask him questions. Jordie let out a soft chuckle as he rubbed her back.

 You leaned against the hallway wall, watching as your daughter played with her father. You finally let the tears fall from your eyes, but this time happy tears.

Auston Matthews #2 | #2.2 | #2.3 | #2.4

Originally posted by nhl-ish

The game was exciting as it was supposed to be. The electricity in the crowd was electrifying. The Canucks were playing their hardest to destroy the Maple Leafs dream of making the playoffs but the boys on the Leafs would not let that happen. The game was tied 2 to 2 with 1-minute left in the third. They either needed to score or hold onto the tie till OT to get the point to qualify them for the playoffs. With 45 seconds left, Auston blasted a shot off of your recent goalie friend and Mitch was right there to blast it into the net. You heart jumped in glee You and Liz were screaming with joy on top of your lungs. You high fived everyone around you, who were equally going crazy as you and Liz. Your heart was filled with happiness as you saw the excitement on Mitch and Auston’s faces. You hated how much seeing Auston happy had an effect on you.

Usually after big games the arena hosted the families of the franchise in a party. You were waiting in this room with all the other friends and family. You saw Auston’s mom from a distance and as much as you didn’t want to talk to her you knew it was the polite thing to do. You loved her but it still hurts to think about you and Auston. “Mrs. Matthews,” you said kindly. She smiled at you warmly. She reminded you a lot of Auston. They both had a raw kindness to them, not to mention they look like each other. She gave you a warm motherly embrace. The two of you caught up on each other’s life. You felt yourself growing more nostalgic with your conversation with Auston’s mother. Of course Auston came over as you were talking to her. Which broke your promise to yourself that you wouldn’t talk to Auston again tonight. He embraced his mother with the biggest happiest loving smile on his face. Your heart wanted to melt at it but you couldn’t allow it. He turned to you and smiled a soft smile. You returned it “Good job tonight,” you praise him and then turned to go back to Liz who was now with Mitch. “wait, wait,” he said while grabbing your arm and spinning you towards him. You looked up at him waiting. “I want to talk.” he said. You tilted your head back and forth in indecisiveness, “Auston, I don’t think that is a good idea,” you told him honestly. “Please,” he desperately pleaded. He sounded amped but also desperate to talk to you. “Okay,” you unwillingly agreed. He pulled you out into the hallway. He took a moment and just stared at you. He had this weird distant look in his eyes and a small smile. “You are so beautiful,” he complimented you out of the blue. You blushed deeply. It made you angry he could still have this effect on you. “Auston,” you warned. Your tone of voice seemed to snap him back into reality. “I want you to know something,” he said softly. He grabbed your hands into his large calloused ones. You looked down at them confused on what was happening but finding comfort in the fact that your hands seemed to fit perfectly into his, like two puzzles pieces fitting together. You felt your heart being ripped out again. It was the worst this time though. You had pushed the feelings you had for him down and you had tried to move on. You thought it was possible but when Auston, did things like this it wasn’t possible to move on. You felt the frustrated tears well in your eyes. You pulled your hands back and crossed your arms in protectiveness. You didn’t look up at Auston. You were afraid to let him see what you were feeling. He brought his hand up to your chin and tilted your head up to look at him. He spoke your name softly, “I need you to know that I still love you,” he spoke kindly. Your heart stopped. Confusion filled your head. Happiness was trying to leak into your mind, but you wouldn’t allow it. You refused to get hurt by this man again. “No,” you pulled away from him creating distance between the two of you. “You didn’t fight for me. You stopped loving me when we were dating. You can’t just love me when I’m not with you. That’s not how this works,” you angrily told him. His face showed somberness. “No, I was wrong. I thought my feelings were dulling for you but they weren’t. I’m new to this. I can’t explain what happened but I can tell you what I feel now, and I know it won’t go away. Ever since I let you get out of my car 6th months ago, I’ve felt like you took a part of me. I felt like you took my happiness,” he spoke somberly. You looked at him and shook your head, “Auston, you didn’t fight for me. You had six months to come to me to make up for it. Why now?” you angrily questioned. Why was he doing this? He looked at you with a brokenness you had never seen before in the hockey player. “You deserve better. You deserve someone who knows your worth and someone who doesn’t cause you pain. I didn’t think I could be that guy,” he told you. “Then what’s changed?” you asked. “Seeing you with that goalie. The way he was flirting like you were just another girl. You aren’t just another girl. You’re the perfect girl. I know that now. I want to be the one treating you right for the rest of our lives,” he said with so much hope in it. The tears softly fell down your face for so many conflicting reasons. Hearing Auston speak these words were everything you wanted to hear, but you still felt hurt from him. You felt the pain he caused you all over again. “Auston…” you began. He took a step closer to you and grabbed your face in his hands. He gently rubbed his thumbs over your cheeks wiping away the tears. “I will never stop loving you. I was an idiot to ever think I wouldn’t love you. I will never stop showing you that if you let me. Please let me,” he sounded so raw and so confident in his words. You believed him. You knew Auston well, you knew him better then you wanted to and because of that you knew he was being honest. You nodded your head at him, letting him know you were giving him a second chance. He smiled at you and kissed you. He kissed you with love and desperateness. He was desperate to show you that he loved you because he did. He was going to keep showing you he loved you for the rest of his life.

anyway, i *THINK* i have everyone on this list (except for a few people who for some reason i wasn’t able to tag and will be DMing), so if i forgot anyone i am incredibly sorry and i still appreciate you!!! here’s the list of bloggers who answered my survey questions, and the paper is below the read more. let me know what you guys think, and what i should talk about in my next paper!

Calling all NHL fans!

So my dad passed away almost three years ago, and I saw that the NHL is doing the whole ‘hockey fights cancer’ I thought it would be appropriate to talk about my dad, and how I was hoping I could drop the puck at a Capitals game. 

My dad loved the Capitals, and he was a life long fan. He worked at Kettler (the practice rink for the Capitals) in 2011 or 2012. One of the only things of his that I still wear is the Capitals hoodie that he bought before he died. 

If everyone could tweet @ the NHL or the Capitals, asking for to be given a chance to drop the puck, it would mean the world to me. 

Thank you guys for reading and tweeting!
