The problem of course, lies in the fact that Justin has always been extremely successful at the things he puts his mind to. And sure, that’s all well and good, until one day he, Holster and Lardo are decorating the tops of their caps in the Haus kitchen, and the next Justin’s got three new roommates in a too small apartment in Providence, with almost 200 miles separating himself from his best friend.
Justin is decidedly thinking about it.
My ‘Swawesome Santa is here!!
A million thank you’s to @sleepy-skittles for beta-ing this for me in the middle of Law School exams (a goddess, seriously), and to @jayzimmboni for being a sounding board for me throughout this whole exchange!!
Title from You Make Me Better by Fabolous, because you all know it is the official SMH D-Men Theme Song, lbr.
This is my first big-ish Holsom fic! I hope y’all like it!
He keeps himself busy, throwing himself into being a good captain for the boys, immersing himself in his studies and planning more Haus Parties in a year than ever before. If he starts to think about it, he goes on the defense, pulling his notes back out or opening Instagram up on his phone and getting lost in the study aesthetics and kittens tags. Other people are obviously thinking about it; he can see it in the way Bitty pulls his bottom lip between his teeth and the nervous looks Dex and Nursey exchange as the season draws to a close. But then they make it into the playoffs, and everybody (including Justin) forgets about that thing looming in the middle of May.
They make it to the championships and they win this time, Bitty scoring the game winning goal with a beautiful slap shot. Justin has never felt pride and excitement and relief like this before, watching this team pile together on the ice, red and white confetti falling from the ceiling and clinging to the sweat and tears on their smiling faces. There’s strong arms lifting Justin in the air, and he knows who it is, knows there’s only one person that even has a chance of moving his feet from the ground . He grins and clings to Holster, forcibly not thinking about what comes next.
I warned you that I’m a mess. I let you see the mess. hell, people warned you that I’m a mess. yet you decided to stick around and explore the mess a little. you stuck around and made a little space for yourself before I even realized what you were doing. you started picking up the broken glass and piles of trash around you. you started making my heart lighter. you started to make yourself a little space in the mess that I call my life.
All of you in the Sasuhina fandom are so kind. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so welcome to a pairing before! I look forward to drawing and seeing all of the artworks/fan fictions you all post :D I’m pretty new to the ship so if you have any fic recommendations, I would love some!! This is my side blog, so if you see someone named kungfuskittle follow you.. that’s me!
