athenejen: iAthena (athena)
Holy shit, apparently the rapidly developing bromance (which I talked about a bit a couple of weeks back) between Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn is so visible from outer space that there's even an entire story about it linked on the front page sidebar of NHL.com. Given how little the Stars tend to get covered in the national media, that's kind of seriously astonishing.

Here be quotes! )

Even before the trade I had more Tyler Seguin feelings than I really wanted to admit to myself, but now that they've collided with my Dallas Stars and Jamie Benn feelings... it turns out that's almost too many feelings to be able to write about them. But the good news is, it doesn't matter if I manage to beat those feelings into submission long enough to shape a fic out of them or not, for [livejournal.com profile] hapakitsune has provided:

settle down, it'll all be clear (2002 words) by hapakitsune
Fandom: Hockey RPF
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Tyler Seguin/Jamie Benn
Characters: Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin
Additional Tags: Power Dynamics, Plot What Plot/Porn Without Plot
Summary: It just felt right, going up to Tyler's place instead of his own.

Bookmarker's Notes: A perfect balance of hot and sweet, with really lovely, deft characterization -- somehow intense and understated and full of nearly-unspoken context all at once, which is exactly, exactly right for the pairing.


Seriously, I loved this fic SO MUCH. I've been falling down on the job lately in terms of reccing (or even commenting, sometimes, which I feel bad about, but well, I'm kind of in a mental state where either things happen or they don't and I don't seem to have much direct control over it), but with all the Benn/Seguin feelings I've been having, I just had to call this one out. It made me so happy! I bet you will enjoy it, too.

A few pictures for reference, because why not! )

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! )
