Bitty wins the Stanley Cup. Kisses it. It turns into a human being. "You've freed me Eric Bittle"
Is this connected to the inanimate object soulmate au? OH MY GOD I love it, can the cup still be Jack but he’s like one of the first hockey players (now I had to google it and it was made in 1893? dang that’s old) and he has to adapt to modern culture and THAT’S why he loves history and hockey so much after he’s freed from inanimacy, they’re what he can understand easily AHHHHHH I LOVE THIS
