A Good Thing
“Bobby, you can’t keep doing that to him.”
Bob raises his eyebrows, putting down his fork. “Doing what, Alicia? Corralling our son into talking about his crush?”
“Exactly.”

Or, A fic about Bob and Alicia noticing Jack’s feelings about Bitty before even he does.

no distance that could hold us back - misandrywitch - Check Please! (Webcomic) [Archive of Our Own]
Jack doesn’t really want to be friends with him, or with anyone, not here at this school and with these people. He wants to keep his head down and keep moving forward, keep playing and getting better and power through this year or few years or however long it will be, and move past it.

Life seems to have other plans, as life does.



Or: The one where Jack and Shitty hook up.

angles of unfair advantage - misandrywitch - Check Please! (Webcomic) [Archive of Our Own]
“Tequila or bust,” Kent says. He turns a little and smiles, right corner of his mouth, at Shitty. His teeth are very white and his eyes are a hard color to pin down but they’re picking up the shifting neon lights in the room.

Uh oh, Shitty thinks. Oh, fuck.

Bitty never imagined he'd be pouring out secrets to Kent Parson, but here he is: curled up on the couch like it's housing his confessional, caught up in that strange late-night energy that makes honesty feel almost easy.

The Left Hand of Godlessness - tourdefierce - Check Please! (Webcomic) [Archive of Our Own]
If Jack’s learned anything from Shitty, it’s that Jack deserves nice things now. There is not a timetable on happiness. And Shitty is certain a future means “fucking fuck all” if Jack’s “a miserable, broken robot”. And regardless of any promises, Jack is certain no one could protect him from Eric Bittle because even the armor of Jack’s recovery had done nothing in the face of southern hospitality and unconditional, unapologetic love.

Between Shitty and Bitty, Jack is spoiled with the now.

didn't ask for you - Mizzy - Check Please! (Webcomic) [Archive of Our Own]
Kent Parson has well over ninety-nine problems. He has a chronic potty mouth, a sneaking suspicion he may be an actual idiot, a narcissistically-named cat with gas issues, too many sisters... the list goes on.

Kent Parson has more than ninety-nine problems and Jack Zimmermann — freshly, resentfully and recently traded to the Las Vegas Aces — is definitely one of them.

GMF - Sparcck - Check Please! (Webcomic) [Archive of Our Own]
Kent swipes to another picture. In this one Eric is looking up at Jack with almost literal heart eyes, but somehow the caption says, Parson and his new Southern Gentleman on Cup Day.



Kent selflessly volunteers to fake-date Bitty to protect Jack and Bitty's relationship. Everything goes really well and there are no miscommunications or attempts at self sabotage on Kent's part at all, because he's an adult now and is definitely not carrying a torch for either one of them.

Bless Your Heart, Kent Parson - melannen - Check Please! (Webcomic) [Archive of Our Own]
Kenny's name had been coming up a lot. Partly because these days, it was hard to talk about the NHL without talking about Kent Parson. Partly because before Samwell, Jack's experience of an American Independence Day had always included a birthday party for Kenny. Partly because - well, because being in Madison with Bitty was. Well. Strange and uncomfortable, in a lot of ways, this week of all weeks, that maybe had Jack worrying at those old frayed ends more than usual.

Or: if you'd told Kent in the off-season that he'd be hooking up with his rookie's hot nerd of a brother, he would've laughed. (He’d still have gone for it, though.)

Bitty even doesn’t think about it before he says, “Jack, go get me a soda.”

Jack freezes in front of the couch, knees slightly bent, halfway to sitting down. He straightens up slowly.

“What kind of soda do you want?” he asks.

Or, Jack likes to be told what to do.

Jack thought his first year in the NHL would be 100% about hockey, but the reality is so much more complicated.

But just because it’s canon doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy long, angsty, get-together stories, amirite?)
