random goalies

the first time Chowder steps into Bitty’s room, he gets this weird vertigo

he squeezes his eyes shut, and when he opens them again, it’s like he’s opening them for the first time

“Chowder? everything okay?” Bitty asks him, and Chowder whirls around and yells


Bitty’s like… ????

“it is impossible to bake a pie in 15 seconds,” Chowder whispers. “im… pos… sible.”

a very worried Bitty ushers him over to the bed and gets him to lie down

“too much narrative cohesion to be real…” Chowder is mumbling, and then something about a kickstarter

Bitty is about to call 911 when Chowder’s phone rings

Chowder answers it

listens for several minutes without saying a word

then hangs up and dashes for the door

“wait, hold up, are you all right?” Bitty demands

and Chowder says “yeah! but the zine’s going on sale in a minute and I gotta run if I’m gonna get one. sounds like it’s a ‘swawesome interrogation of the overlap between authorial space and consumer transformation PLUS in it I get smooches! you do too, Bitty! everybody gets PTB-approved semi-fanonical smooches!”

he flails his arms and runs away

Bitty picks up the phone and says, “this is Johnson, isn’t it.”

all he hears is the clang of a puck against iron, and the call ends.

Bitty smiles, shakes his head in fond bemusement, and says into the dead air

“he’s gonna do you proud.”
