Title: even the weight of our voices not speaking
Fandom: Hockey RPF
Relationship(s): Ryan Suter/Shea Weber, mentions of Mike Fisher/Carrie Underwood, lots of ensemble friendships
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~10k
Disclaimer: So very, very fictional.
Warnings: None as far as I can tell.
Summary: Summer 2012 is not a good summer for Shea Weber. The several months that follow aren't exactly an improvement. (AKA: All the badly-suppressed pining. ALL OF IT. And some resolution, too.)
Notes: This was written for [livejournal.com profile] littlesignsof as part of her [livejournal.com profile] sixteenwins prize. It deals with some of the major canonical events of 2012 as known through the end of October (but diverges after that), and is AU in that some girlfriends/wives have been handwaved away for various reasons. It follows a modified version of the original schedule rather than the actual post-lockout schedule. The title is from the poem A Hunger So Honed by Tracy K Smith. I am so very grateful to [livejournal.com profile] angelsaves for the lovely, fast beta (and for attempting to impose some much-needed order on my commas!), to the mods of mini_wrimo for providing a terrific, motivational writing forum that helped this fic get written, and to [livejournal.com profile] nordicwrites for her wonderfully supportive comments as an early reader of a fair chunk of snippets through the [livejournal.com profile] mini_wrimo process. I also a debt of thanks to [livejournal.com profile] littlesignsof for requesting the pairing! It gave me an excuse to try writing it and ended up inspiring my longest fic yet. Also posted on AO3 here.

Shea is not calling him. He's not calling him because Ryan deserves as much space as he can get to make this decision, and that's that. )

In the comments of my previous post about Shea Weber and Ryan Suter, Katarin said she hadn't seen the Shea-as-Tigger photo. THIS CANNOT STAND! Therefore, picspam. :D (Note -- if you haven't yet seen the ridiculously adorable video that Katarin linked in the comments of that post in which Weber and Suter host a kids Christmas party on the ice, go watch it RIGHT NOW. Oh, my heart.)

This is just a handful of photos from various places that were lying around on my HD -- mostly featuring Weber but also a few of Suter, with cameos from Ryan Kesler on his knees and Dan Hamhuis as Winnie-the-Pooh.

Enjoy! )

Yesterday I decided that researching and writing a whole 1500-word fic in less than 24 hours was enough of a happy thing to go with for the little informal meme I'm doing this month. Today, I give you a recent example of one of my favorite things, defense pairs being Weird About Each Other.

Now, I'm not sure anyone will ever manage to be Weirder About Each Other than Duncs & Seabs. It's likely just not possible. But as the second half of this article shows, Shea Weber and Ryan Suter give it the old college try.

Summary: Suter says they're really good friends, Weber says Suter being there is the thing he's most looking forward to about All-Star Weekend, and Dave Lozo straight-up says it sounds like they're married. )

I still want the Blackhawks to hurry up and and win some games and beat the Predators in the standings, but I can't help it, I find them and their mutual admiration society adorable.

Incidentally, if anyone has any general house-hunting advice, I'd be curious and grateful to hear it.
