Jeremy is an athlete, which means he wears a watch with a timer no matter how nerdy and ugly it is; and he’s a college athlete in his senior year, which means he has a Google Calendar more packed than one of his suitcases when he needs to fly home. In other words: Jeremy keeps track of time to the minute at least. He’s not organized in other parts of his life, but in this one, knowing when and how long, he’s basically a walking bullet journal.

All of which is to say: Jean has been in L.A. for six months, fourteen days, six hours, and twenty-three minutes when Jeremy blinks during lunch with the team and realizes he’s staring.

You narrowed your eyes a little as you tried to concentrate on the garbled instructions on the other end of the phone over the noise of the television blaring in the next room. You found yourself apologising quickly as you ducked your head out of the kitchen, covering the bottom of the phone as you did so. “Auston can you turn that down a bit.” You called, but you didn’t bother to linger long enough to see if your boyfriend, who was sat rigidly on the couch glaring at the TV, would actually comply with your request.

“Sorry,” you murmured into the phone, pressing a hand to your other ear as you attempted to catch what they were asking you as you tried to update your health insurance for the third time this week. “Okay, yep.” you replied, hastily scrawling something down on the notepad you had ready. You suppressed a groan of annoyance as the TV continued to play at exactly the same volume. “I’m so sorry.” you told the woman on the other end of the line before you walked into the living room, covering the phone again and resorting to standing in front of the TV to get your boyfriend’s attention. “Auston, can you please turn that down, I’m on the phone.”

Usually this wasn’t a problem but the way Auston had been acting lately was anything but usual. Your sweet and charming boyfriend had been moody and overly sarcastic for the past couple of weeks. No matter how open to talking you’d made yourself to him he was having none of it. So you’d given him space and hoped he’d sort himself out but now you were of the opinion that it had gotten a little out of hand. Auston had been watching his old games at full volume and you’d tried to be accomodating. He hardly spoke to you and you’d tried to be patient with him. He was hardly home and you tried to be understanding. But seeing as you were trying to keep this house functional, your patience was wearing thin.

political talk show au, the thrilling conclusion.

Here is the whole story from the beginning.

This is 4.5 K. Also it is still liberal-leaning and anti-Trump. No Hillary angst in this one tho.

Dear lord, what have I become.


Bits.

The name sounds, like a thunderclap, in Jack’s head.

It wasn’t a moment ago the name was a question. A doubt, even. Does Bits even exist? Bitty certainly does. Bitty is the name of the screener for Jack’s favorite radio show, his companion through the morning for a year and change now. Bitty is unfailingly pleasant, unerringly professional, and untouchable. He handles callers with a lilt, a friendly word, and a toss off onto the airwaves. Jack made his acquaintance several months back, and he’s enjoyed their every interaction.

But Bits. Now, that’s someone Jack isn’t sure he hasn’t conjured up in his head.

Bits exists in the soft cluck of Bitty’s tongue, the hitch of breath between words. The pause before he intones Jack’s name, leaning on the “a” like it’s a cushion. Bits is the person Jack imagines Bitty to be, behind the phones. He’s a friend, a confidant. A ray of light in Jack’s life. And in Jack’s mind, Bits is just a little more friendly with him with all his other callers. Maybe he even feels something at the sound of Jack’s voice, the way Jack does at every musical “Hallo!”

Jack has come here today half-terrified that he’d discover Bits doesn’t exist at all. That Bitty, as competent and admirable as he is, is all there is, and whatever relationship  he’d imagined they’d been nurturing has been a figment of his imagination this whole time.

Now Bitty comes into focus like a blue sky when the clouds have parted. He wasn’t there, and suddenly he is; he must have been in the room before, but it’s only now that Jack’s eyes land on him and recognize.

But when their eyes meet, and Bitty’s brown eyes widen and then dance, Jack knows Bits is real.

OK SO

For the AFTG Exchange, I had thepalmtoptiger, who didn’t ask for much in the way of prompts but definitely wanted Andrew/Neil!  I looked through your tag a bit to get an idea of what you liked, and I hope this is worth the four-day wait (I’m so sorry)

When they first moved into the apartment, Neil hadn’t really thought about the concept of furniture.  Sure, he knew they needed it – a bed, a table, probably some chairs.  Beyond that, though, nothing really occurred to him.  In the end it was Andrew who dragged him by the ear to Ikea in search of plates and lamps and bookcases.

Aggressively supportive dad Richard Bittle

Keeping with the theme of my previous post, here are just a few headcanons about Coach Bittle, who just really loves his gay son, okay?

  • Coach wishes he could make it to some of Bitty’s games, but his busy schedule with coaching and teaching, plus the distance to Samwell makes it difficult. Instead the Bittles have a completely ridiculous cable package just so they can watch NCAA hockey. They still can’t catch every Samwell game live, but Coach DVRs and watches every game broadcast.
  • In a stroke of really bad luck, the APUSH exam was the same week as the Frozen Four championship game, so Coach misses that too. When Bitty gets back to Madison he’s surprised to find there’s no room on the DVR to record The Great British Bake-Off because it’s full of Samwell’s playoff games.
  • Jack comes to Madison for July 4th, and he and Bitty are completely not subtle about their mooning over each other. Suzanne is really tempted to tell the boys that they know and Coach has to talk her down. Instead he suggests a series of totally urgent errands he and Suzanne need to do ‘so you boys can have some time alone.’ Dropping hints that they know also does not work.
  • When Bitty does tell his Coach he’s dating Jack, Coach plays it pretty cool. He says that Jack’s a good man and a fine athlete, so well done, Junior.
  • In public it’s a completely different story. When Jack and Bitty go public with their relationship, it’s non-stop bragging about Junior and his NHL-star boyfriend. Did you know they played in the Frozen Four together?
  • The faculty of Morgan County High School gets used to the fact that outside of football season, all Coach Bittle wants to talk about is hockey. Eventually he wins a few new Falconers fans. Possibly this is because he won’t shut up and his friends want to at least know what the heck he’s on about.
  • Fun town game: spotting Bitty and his friend ‘Mr. Crappy’ in the crowd during Falcs broadcasts. (Cue reminders the Junior used to play on Jack Zimmermann’s line.)
  • Coach’s team knows that he has absolutely zero tolerance for homophobic slurs or intolerant behavior from his players. That’s a one way ticket to being suspended from the team.
  • Coach is never going to be outgoing like his wife and son, but things are easier between him and Bitty now. Bitty doesn’t have to hide his sexuality, and he knows Coach doesn’t secretly wish his son was a QB.
  • Coach still agrees with Jack that Bitty should eat more protein.
Detachment Studies

A soulmate doesn’t always mean a lover. Sure, that’s how the romances go in the movies – revelations of matching soulmarks, followed by candlelit sex scenes – but real life is more complex than that. Plenty of twin sisters are born with matching marks. Sometimes, a mother gives birth to a baby who’s carrying her identical mark, and that mother and child will grow up each other’s best friend. Artists find their muses, and business executives find their right-hand-men, in their soulmates. It’s platonic just as often as it’s romantic. Torrid romances with soulmates can end – though, of course, lasting friendships usually form in their wake – and happy, successful marriages can be forged and maintained in the absence of matching marks.

Ransom’s parents, realists and pragmatists that they are, have drummed that into his head. “Don’t take it as a sign of destiny,” they tell him. “It’s a biological process, but like most biological processes, we’ve found ways to overcome it.” When Ransom – then young Justin – asks what that means, and aren’t they mated, they join hands and nod and sigh. “It’s like this, honey,” his mom explains. “It’s easiest to  remain physically close to your soulmate after you meet. But there are other ways around it, too. Many soulmates manage by just emailing each other a few times a week. They keep their mental synch that way. And even if you don’t – most people are okay.”

“They call those people detached,” Justin says. “Someone says Mrs. North is detached and that’s why she’s such a grump.”

“That’s a myth,” his father says. “The great majority of people can handle being detached, just like we can handle all the other stresses in our lives. You may not be as strong or as smart as you would be with a soulmate, but that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you. Some people do have a hard time, but most detached folks are just like you and me. They’re not the people they would have been, but we’ve all got things about us that are less than perfect.”

“It’s stupid,” Justin says. “Why would God make us like that? Why do we need someone else to be the best we can be?”

“A lot of things life deals us are stupid,” his mother says with her characteristic sunny laugh. “The best we can do is to figure out how to deal with them.”

Justin goes on thinking the whole concept is bullshit. He gets into science, medicine and biology, trying to figure out what on earth is the point of soul mating. He never really gets an answer on that front. What he does discover is the detachment studies – the emerging art and science of helping those who, for whatever reason, have met their soulmates but now have to live without them. He decides he wants to go to medical school, create a practice built around helping the detached live their lives as fully and happily as possible.

All the while, the thought of his soulmate never really crosses his mind. If he meets them, he meets them. He’ll go from there.

Until The Clock Stops Ticking

(This AU isn’t done yet bc it’s like 64,912 words LOL and I started it this summer and idk maybe all of my 38 devoted followers and cp enthusiasts can give me some feedback if you want more? AnyWHO it’s basically one where Bits is drafted to the Las Vegas Aces and J-Z is kinda his biggest enemy lolz)

Deep breaths and a lot of counting to ten. The sound of that whistle always makes his heart rate rise, and the sound of that buzzer always makes his ears ring. Every game had to be his absolute best, always had to be his hundred-ten percent, because a man his size shouldn’t even be playing in the NHL. It’s boarder line dangerous, but when Bitty went tenth in the draft, chosen to play for the Las Vegas Aces, he couldn’t have been happier. He worked his ass off to be here, but just because he made it on the team the first and second time around and wasn’t sent down to the minors, it’s still a possibility. Which meant no room for mistakes.

Skate through the pain. He can’t be seen as a liability.

He watches as Daniels passes the puck to Parse, but Daniels is checked before the puck even makes it halfway to Kent before Jack Zimmermann intercepts it.

“Bittle!” Coach shouts, frustration and anger laced heavily in his tone. They were behind 4-2, fighting for a spot in the playoffs. “I’m switching up the lines, you’re on!”

It’s true Bitty’s nerves are his biggest rival. Sometimes it helps him on the ice, but in rare moments it causes him to freeze up before getting checked. But even if his nerves aren’t his biggest enemy, Jack Zimmermann is.

DexNursey fic - Part 4

(1 - 2 - 3)(AO3)

So, not thinking about Nursey was not going well. Dex was having a terrible week even without the added stress of knowing that he had an unrequited crush on someone so far out of his league that they weren’t even playing the same sport. Well, metaphorically anyway. His classes were beating him down, a teacher had lost a report he’d handed in last week and was making him redo the whole thing, and the added awkwardness with Nursey was making English Lit a living hell.

Even worse, on top of all that he’d just had a phone call from his brother. While calls from home weren’t all that rare - he usually called his mother every week or so - he hadn’t spoken to any of his siblings since his outburst over summer. Turns out, his brother was calling to make sure that his outburst was just him supporting his friends and that he hadn’t got any ideas from his backwards new college. At that point, Dex had just hung up, far too incensed to even attempt to explain anything to his brother.

Stephen Amell

Better Watch His Speed

by Jay S. Jacobs

What is cooler than playing a beloved character from an iconic comic franchise?  How about playing two?

For several years, Stephen Amell has been making his bones playing the title character in the hit CW series Arrow, which was the cornerstone in the network’s current all-DC-Comics all-the-time strategy.  As billionaire playboy Oliver Queen, who secretly doubles as the vigilante superhero The Green Arrow, he has been using his trusty bow and arrow to protect Star City from all sorts of super-villains.

The success of Arrow has led to other CW series also based on DC Comics series: The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, iZombie and Supergirl, which has just moved over to the CW after a high-profiles first season on sister network CBS.  Fox also has two DC series, Gotham and Lucifer, and AMC recently debuted the DC-based series Preacher, with several other DC-based projects in the planning stages.

However, as much as he loves his TV series, Amell has been itching to try out a big movie role.  And now, he has that, too.  

Last year Amell was tapped to play the hockey-stick wielding street fighter Casey Jones in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel Out of the Shadows.  Like Queen, Jones is also a vigilante, working as a corrections officer by day and donning a hockey-mask and stick to fight crime at night.

Casey runs across the heroes in a half shell during his day job, when he is transferring baddies Bebop and Rocksteady to a different jail, only to find himself in the middle of a jailbreak orchestrated by mega-baddy Krang. Through some serious CGI fight footage, Jones saves himself and Turtles confidante April O’Neil, and then teams with the heroes to track down the bad guys.

Plus, though it is not overly explored in the current film, according to the mythology of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, Casey Jones becomes romantically involved with Megan Fox’s character of O’Neil.  Must be nice to get a job where you are paid to flirt with Fox.  However, in this movie the flirting is still in an early stage. Right now, Casey Jones is still all about slap-shotting the bad guys.

Which brings up the most obvious question: Who would win a fight, Casey Jones or Oliver Queen?

“Why are you making me choose, man?” Amell laughed at the recent Philadelphia red carpet premiere for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. “That’s like [asking] ‘Who’s your favorite kid?’  No. No.  [I’m not going to say…] My daughter will always be my favorite, yeah…”

Amell was in Philadelphia for a dual purpose.  Beyond introducing Thursday night’s Philly premiere of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, he also spent the weekend at the Philadelphia Convention Center for the annual Wizard World Philadelphia Comic-Con.  (Though, it turns out he didn’t hang around for the complete screening.  Not long after he introduced the film, he tweeted from a local bar – probably Warmdaddy’s next door to the theater – that he was anxiously watching the Golden State Warriors-Cleveland Cavaliers NBA playoff game.)

“When I decided to come back to Wizard World Philly, it all basically revolved around the idea that it was opening weekend of Turtles,” Amell said.  “I thought an event like this would be really fun.”

Not half as fun as working on the Turtles movie, though.  Amell has been wanting to make a movie for quite a while, actively lobbying for the role and working hard to fit it into his busy Arrow schedule.

“We had a lot of fun making this movie,” Amell explained.  “We shot it last year right around this time in New York City.  I feel like we leaned into the idea of a Turtles movie.  We brought a lot of fun stuff like Bebop, Rocksteady, Krang, me, stuff like that. So if you enjoy the movie, share it on Facebook, share it on Twitter, tell a friend, see it again, pay for a ticket. All that stuff that matters to theoretically make a third one of these, because I had such an awesome time playing Casey Jones and I’d love to do it again.”

While he had a great time making the movie, Amell found that working for a big-screen spectacular really wasn’t all that different than being on a weekly series, it was just in a more compact time period.

“I’d say, no [it’s not much different],” Amell said.  “Show up on time.  Hit your marks.  Say your lines.”

Casey Jones is also a very different type of character than Oliver Queen is – other than the obvious nighttime vigilante fighting crime aspect. However, Queen is more of a brooding, serious character.  Jones, on the other hand, loves to have fun and is just a tiny bit of a goofball.  

However, Amell insists that it was not really much of a stretch to go from one character’s head space to the other.

“You know what?  It’s all there on the page,” Amell admits.  “I know that sounds a bit like a cop-out answer, but the first big major scene I got to shoot was with the Turtles [I felt comfortable with the new role]. And it’s not as though I was ever concerned that Casey Jones would seem like Oliver Queen…”

And he didn’t have that steep a learning curve.  For example, asked if he knew anything about martial arts like Kung Fu, Amell said, “No.  Only what I see in movies.”

One majorly cool aspect of filming Out of the Shadows is that it was made in New York City, picking up the vibe, the sweat, the grime and the spirit of its host city.  It was fun to work on the city streets, but it was a bit of an eye-opener after working in the relative calm of Vancouver, where The Arrow is filmed.

“I was surprised how easily distracted I was, having never been to New York City before,” Amell admitted.  “Just New  York City in general. The pitch of the streets, the paparazzi, the yelling.  No one cares that you’re filming….  Some of the things that used to bother me as an actor.  I turned to [actress] Laura Linney and said something like: ‘Does this bother you?’  She was like, ‘No.’  So I learned that I needed to relax.”

Surprisingly, for a man who has become a star on the back of an iconic superhero, Amell was a bit more geeked out to be playing with the Turtles. Asked if he was a fan of the characters growing up, he admitted, “Oh yeah, big time.  I loved the live action movies.  I loved the cartoon.  I wasn’t a big comics guy.”

However, now he is more submersed into the world of Arrow.  However, if they were to ever make a crossover between Arrow and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Amell is certain that Oliver Queen would barely be fazed by giant pizza-scarfing ninja turtles.

“I feel like Oliver has seen enough that he would be like, ‘Oh, God. There’s mutants, too,’” Amell reasoned. “He would probably shake his head and figure out whether they were born Americans.”

For now, though, Amell is enjoying the publicity tour to promote the Turtles.  Soon enough he will return to television and his bow and arrow.  However, could the Arrow have a film crossover as well?  The character of the Green Arrow will undoubtedly be a part of the upcoming DC All-Stars movie Justice League.  At this point, they have tried to keep the DC television and film franchises separate.

In fact, director Zack Snyder has made a point of it in the recent Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.  Snyder was asked why he did not cast Grant Gustin, star of the CW’s hit TV series The Flash, to play the character of The Flash in the movie.

“I just don’t think it was a good fit,” Snyder said.  “I’m very strict with this universe and I just don’t see a version where… that [tone is] not our world.”

While this attitude was disappointing… to say the least… to fans of the TV series, Snyder has stood by it.  However, even on the series, the character of Oliver Queen/The Arrow is much darker than The Flash’s Barry Allen. Perhaps Amell’s characterization would fit more into Snyder’s worldview?

Amell isn’t holding his breath for that.

“I don’t know,” Amell admitted.  “I feel like they made a decision to keep things separate. Whether that’s the decision that lasts forever remains to be seen.  It all depends on the success of a bunch of films.  Until a movie is released, it’s a theoretical thing, right?  I feel like there is always going to be an opportunity on the landscape.”

One thing that will not be kept separate is the characters of the WB series.  Amell has done crossover guest appearances on The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow and characters from those series have visited the Arrow in Star City.  This trend will continue, and Amell said that now that Supergirl is on the network, he would not be at all surprised if those characters also make the rounds, particularly since in the comics The Arrow and Supergirl are supposed to be friends.

“It depends on what they write; you know what I mean?” he allowed. “It would be interesting to see Oliver meet Supergirl.  I don’t know how that’s going to play.”

Perhaps Oliver can give Supergirl some advice on fighting.

“Oh, yeah, Oliver always gives people advice, even when they don’t ask for it,” Amell said, good naturedly.  

Amell paused a moment, then admitted, “I have a confession.  I haven’t seen Supergirl yet.  I usually watch everything when a season is done.  I finished up this year and then went directly to the press tour.  I’ve got some homework to do.  I’ve got some homework to do.  Although maybe it would be better for Oliver having never met as the character to not watch the show yet.”

The world is full of so many variables, that the most important thing is finding your bliss.  Amell has found his in acting and being a family man.  He hopes his fans all find theirs as well.

“You’ve got to do what makes you happy,” Amell said.  “You’re never going to excel in an industry if it’s just something that you feel like it’s an obligation.  By the way, that doesn’t have to be something as out there as acting. My mother-in-law loves taxes as much as I love acting.  I swear to God.  She’s written tax code for the IRS and she loves that as much as I love acting.  You just got to do what you love.”
