do i ever write about anything else these days

Twice last week now, I burst out laughing 'cos I was reading fic on my phone and people around me were like "why are you laughing" and bros why do you think i laugh, i laugh because i am happy! i laugh because the world is a Beautiful Place. But I'm not going to tell you that it's because I'm reading fic about how Brad Marchand is sometimes a literal cat and how Sidney Crosby is about to partake of a consensual gangbang. Not in the same fic, but who's counting??

Pens friends! I have a Sidney Crosby question, for maybe research? First of all, what is real? Why this motif in fic where Crosby gives the Most Canned Answers to the media? I mean, yes his answers are canned, but they don't don't sound any more canned than the media answers of other athletes in the league or even in other sports? But why is fic emphatically all "of COURSE Sid is circumlocutory at journalists" and making a thing of it? I feel like I am missing something, which is entirely probable because I am a n00b. Mostly I've just watched the stuff linked to on here and some 'In the Room' episodes.

Question-ish #2: have you contemplated your own mortality today? Sometimes I'm reading a fic and I get skeptical about a thing a character did, but then I'm like, "What if I'm only thinking that because they are basically children and I am no longer Kids Today and am losing touch with the youth? Maybe that IS what all the kids do. Maybe I'm just old and don't understand." Am I old? will i die someday.

3: OK, but in the page of videos I linked to up there, probably the first one I watched was the Sid vs. Ovi thing because I'm predictable. And one line of Sid's has stuck with me, basically something about how the rivalry wasn't personal, mostly started out as everyone being excited about young talent, but now the media is trying to make it personal and sometimes it succeeds, sometimes it becomes personal to him and he doesn't really like how it feels. FIC PLS. Ovi all "lol, don't let them get in your head".
