Look, I’m not saying Auston needs to get in major trouble, that’s not what this is. Should he face consequences? Yes he should, he’s no different that anybody else, he gets in trouble he deals with a fallout. I just want him and the team to acknowledge that it was wrong. He is a 21 year old man (not boy!) who gets payed 11.6 million dollars a year to play hockey for one of the most popular teams in the NHL. He’s a public figure, not a college boy. Have people in the league done worse? Yes. Does that mean he should get away with it? No!! It doesn’t!! Idk what it is about Toronto that breeds complete and utter douchebags (people not signing because they can’t agree on how many millions of dollars they’re going to be overpaid, grown men using homophobic slurs on the ice, their fucking GM supporting players charged (not accused! charged!) with sexual assault, et cetera) but just because people have done worse doesn’t make this less bad. I just want him and the team to say “you know what it was wrong and I’m sorry, I’m working to change.” At the end of the day he sexually harassed a woman and if you’re gonna treat that as a joke idk what to tell you 🤷🏼‍♀️

My take from the mind of a budding public health student:

1. Auston’s situation is not unique.  He a statistic of the system that condones substance use disorder, domestic abuse, sexism, racism, and homophobia.

2. Players are not taught how to cope with the stress of their careers.

3. I do think he needs to be held accountable if he genuinely did something wrong, but realize he’s a product of his environment.

Whatever the outcome, we do need to take care of every players’ mental health as much as their physical health.

Intro:

This is a mixed team pairing exchange. They can be an existing ship that now plays on two different teams like the Galchenyuk/Gallagher, MacKinnon/Drouin, Nico/Nolan, or Burakovsky/Wilson ships. Otherwise, you can offer a rarepair (like Ehlers/Roussel) from two different teams that would make an interesting ship.

AU’s, Canon Compliant, etc. are all acceptable. See the rules page for more details.

5) Fics must be a minimum of 2k.
6) Foreign language components are ok if translated in the work notes.

Antoine has no idea how much his life is about to change.
