Summary: Bitty decides to go home for Thanksgiving his sophomore year – so he can come out to his parents. When Coach Bittle is in denial, the boys in the Haus decide that Bitty needs to bring a boyfriend home for Winter Break. A boyfriend chosen from the very attractive ranks of SMH, of course.
Why does Jack volunteer?
Because he’s a masochistic fuckwit, that’s why.
Why You Should Read This: One of the tropes that I dearly love is the “Fake/Pretend Relationship” tropes, and this fic falls right into that. But beyond that one trope, it is a lighthearted, freaking adorable fic. I mean, don’t you get that from the title alone?
Besides the humor right in the title and summary, the author spreads out little nuggets of awesome here and there. You know that Jack is crazy about Bitty, and no, he shouldn’t volunteer to help Bitty out when he needs to bring a fake boyfriend home for the holidays. And how do you prepare for something like that? Why how about some lessons in handholding, cuddling, and even a little kissing? That’ll be easy, right?
This is a wonderful, lighthearted fic that you’ll enjoy reading. Trust me.
