This whole thing feels so weird, like they’re betraying some clause of the homosocial bro code that says it’s only for fun, you can’t actually be gay, like they’re letting someone down. But on the other hand, being with each other is the most natural thing they’ve ever done. Like a chemical reaction, or two halves of something whole, or one of those hand puzzles where the two pieces of metal are all twisted around each other, or the logical and satisfying conclusion of a really good book.
Like many of my hockey friends, I fell in love with the sport because of this ‘verse, and it’s a shame I’ve only shared one other Ransom/Holster fic here, because they are my favorite pairing in the Check Please world. Even if you’re not a fan of hockey, this pairing is so cute and ultimately gone on one another, it’s hard not to love them. These two aren’t the main pairing at Samwell, but they are hands down my sweetest comic hockey boys.
