the upside of accident // laughter at a closer distance

Title: The Upside of Accident
Pairing: Jeff Skinner / Jordan Staal
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 5,185
Summary: “Ah, fuck,” Jeff says, and the smile stretches its way across his face, putting lines in the corners of his eyes and dimples in his cheeks. “I gotta deal with two of you, now?” Or: An accidental dating fic.

For a split second, Jordan doesn’t even know how to respond, but he’s been around chirping for long enough that he catches himself, deadpans back, “If you’re the welcoming committee, I’m going back to Pittsburgh.”



Title: Laughter at a Closer Distance
Pairing: Jordan Eberle / Taylor Hall
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 6,033
Summary: The thing is, if it wasn't for his nerves and all that, Taylor would mostly just be super embarrassed that he didn't see this coming. Maybe he should have known something was up when the cheapest dude on the planet invited him out for a roommates' dinner at a pretty nice place, but somehow he just forgot to ask himself, Could this whole thing be a ploy to get me to an over-priced restaurant that Whits'll never actually show up to because he's a douchebag who thinks he's helping things by setting me up on a surprise date with Ebby?

Taylor doesn't know how that question slipped his mind, but in the future, he'll have to be more careful.
