livestream tidbits, vol. 6
  • there is no alternate captain on the samwell team right now, just jack as the captain
  • jack’s dslr is a canon
  • there is no reference for how far chowder’s hair goes out; it’s instinct
  • there will be many new characters in bitty’s junior year, but the focus will still be on only a few characters because you can’t develop a huge cast
  • no more hockey shit with ransom and holster this year, but there will be one early in bitty’s junior year (and n is SUPER excited for it)
  • as for jack’s team allegiances, jack cheered for the falcs and probably hated the bruins, but as a professional hockey player you know so many people it would be hard for him to actually dislike a team unless it’s a pure rival (especially because you could be traded to them next week). he’s not a causal fan, he’s got “uncles” from all the teams and knows lots of other players. he likes the habs because he’s from montreal and his dad played for them (there’s a picture of him somewhere wearing a habs hat), but he just likes hockey in general
  • parse is too small to check anyone, he would go flying. he’s 5'9" or 5'10"
  • bitty is 5'6.5"
  • jack would probably never get into a fight, would do so only under very specific circumstances. he knows better than that and it’s not very captainly. he’s not fighting to stay on the line-up, though he’ll play like he’s being sent down to the farm every time because he’s pasisonate
  • outside of hockey, jack is laid-back, chill, comes off as very normal even if he likes to keep to himself. he’s a logical thinker, unconcerned with trivialities or things that aren’t necessary. he’s not terribly exciting (channeling sidney crosby). then you see him play hockey and you go “oh man, this guy is psycho”. that’s where all the passion and overachievement goes
  • dex likes lobster because he eats it a lot, but it’s not his favorite food; he probably only likes it the way his parents make it
  • is jack aware of the jack/parse fanfic? ransom and holster probably approached him with it, but he forgot because it’s not hockey and he doesn’t actually know what fanfic is. they would have a very awk conversation trying to explain what it is and jack just wouldn’t get it. he would think it’s really weird, but “i also saw a whole gallery of dogs wearing sweaters and that was weird” and then ransom and holster would give up
  • ransom would send him one and jack would read the first sentence and go “that didn’t happen” and ransom would be like “THAT’S THE POINT” and jack wouldn’t finish it because he had to write an essay
  • ransom likes using memes; when jack did an ama on bitty’s twitter, someone asked jack what his fave meme was and ransom told him to put down dogecoin. jack had no idea what he was saying, it did not change his life, and he immediately forgot about it, even though it tickled ransom
  • jack is like sidney crosby in terms of superstition: not actually superstitious, just likes everything controlled and in a certain routine; that way, if he doens’t win, he knows it’s on him, no excuses
  • everyone else at samwell hates the hockey team; they’re loud, kind of weird, they live in this house, they’re really only friends with each other, they say “swawesome”. there are rumors about jack (he’s privileged; “there was a kegster and i heard there was a solid gold keg and i bet jack bought it” and “he’s on drugs”). the lax team probably spreads terrible lies
  • what does “swawesome" mean? check please isn’t the first place to use it; the intent is a contraction of “so awesome”. it means “sicker than cool, cooler than awesome". tell your friends
