Paulie/James thirst follow AU (James following Paulie obvs, Paulie being completely oblivious)

james first starts following paul martin on twitter as a joke — yeah, martin’s a great center fielder, kicking ass for the pirates after a trade from the twins, but also he’s hot as fuck.

"i’d tap that," james says, drawling it into geno’s shoulder because the stadium beer has been a lot. “i’d tap that and respect him in the morning and ask him out for brunch.”

"not even second best sport and you perving on player? pathetic, lazy," geno replies. sunshine taught him "perving" yesterday. geno’s been using it basically only with james ever since.

"he’s hot,” james replies, squinting at the replay that shows martin squinting and looking fine with a capital f before pulling out his phone. “he probably, like, dates people. he has that — that look. y’know. a dater.”

"you stalking?" geno asks, and james scowls.

no,” he lies. or, well, half lies. is it stalking to follow someone on twitter?


about a week later, pr gets wind of the fact that james has maybe gone to like the pirates’ entire homestand, if not the reasons why, and fucking swoops in.

"this is great,” jen says on the phone as james stares at his plate of burned eggs. “if we can work this, you know, tap into you guys as part of pittsburgh, one with the fans, it’ll create a lot of goodwill.”

"oh," james replies, taking a bite of egg. "i — okay."

he doesn’t mention the part where he kind of keeps up with paul martin’s everything on twitter. he posts a lot of shirtless pictures. it’s very good for james.


it’s also through twitter that james learns paul’s moving to the house right across the street from him.

new place! going to have fun meeting the neighbors, the tweet reads, along with a picture that’s of the house literally right there, right. there.

it takes all of james’ self-control not to walk himself over there and do — something. give him a welcome basket? unlikely. james’ inability to cook is pens legend by now.

of course, he gets distracted when the doorbell rings. standing up to open it, he finds —

"paul martin," paul says, smiling and sticking out a hand. "i just moved in across the street."

"i — hi," james says, feeling a flush creep up his neck. "hi, i — i’m james. neal. james neal. nice to meet you too."

it takes him a few seconds to realize paul’s waiting to shake his hand, so he reaches out to take it.

"well, james neal," paul says, smiling at him, "i’m looking forward to getting to know you. you’re on the pens, right?"

"i — yeah," james replies, blinking at paul. "that’s me."

"you know, i played back in high school," paul says, because of course he did. of course the hot minnesotan played hockey, because james’ life is very hard.

"oh! that’s — wow. we should like, go skate sometime," james says, and paul’s smile almost seems to get bigger.

"for sure," he says, voice lilted a little, and oh shit, things just got a whole lot worse for james than a little twitter stalking.

  • Have you tried lobbying for Mozyakin [to be on the Olympic team]?
  • Malkin: I've never lobbied for anyone. My job is to play and score goals, coaches are responsible for deciding who will be on the team. I don't want to be responsible for everything, haha.
  • Crosby is lobbying for his linemate Kunitz to be on the Canadian team.
  • Malkin: Well, it's Crosby, he can do that. He's an Olympic champion. I could only lobby for Neal, but he won't be able to change his passport that quickly. It's a pity, though. He would be called Nealov. Or Nealkin.
  • ("That's the last thing I need," was the comment by Neal himself when we asked him about the possibility of getting a Russian passport. Then he confided to us the fact that he already knows Russian swear words. Who taught them to him, we wonder.)
  • *
  • We've observed that you tucked in your jersey during the morning skate. What do you think about "Ovechkin's rule"?
  • Malkin: I am ready to give him a silent treatment because of it! It was changed because of him and now it's me who has to suffer. It's a habit, you know? You've been doing something your whole life and then suddenly it's forbidden. When I tuck in my jersey, I feel hundred times more comfortable. [...] I discussed it with Sid and he thinks this rule might be revoked. Too many are complaining about it.
  • *
  • There were hard times in your relationship [with Ovechkin]. What is it like right now?
  • Malkin: That is ancient history. We are brothers now. Or at least cousins.
  • *
  • What was your relationship [with Crosby] like after the unfortunate game against Canada in Vancouver?
  • Malkin: Canadians won fair and square and I can't consider them enemies because of it. Moreover, Sid is a sensible person. If he started making jokes about it, I would've probably stopped talking to him. Thinking about that game is still painful and Sid understands that. We know what it means to lose, we've lost Stanley Cup finals together.
  • How easy is he to talk to? Are you friends or is your relationship strictly professional?
  • Malkin: We are friends. We live near each other. He helped me a lot during my first few years in Pittsburgh. He showed me around every day. You could call him at any time and he would pick up the phone. Look at what he's achieved and his good character hasn't changed. His parents are very kind people. [...] I've never heard him tell a nasty or vicious joke.
  • *
  • Is [Crosby] a good captain?
  • Malkin: I think he is, although becoming a good captain takes time. But he's reached that point. When he had difficulties during the first few years, Mario Lemieux might have given him some advice. Surely Sergei Gonchar shared some of his experience with him as well.
