    "'It is a truth universally acknowledged that Samwell athletes are the gayest of the gay,'" Nursey reads aloud.

    Holster snorts. "Thanks. We try."

    Summary

    Jack meets a cute stranger in a bar.
    Jack pretends he's not from around Providence and says he travels a lot for work.
    The cute stranger- Eric- says he's a motivational speaker, also travels a lot, and doesn't seem to care for any sports outside of football.
    Bonus! He seems to understand-even share- Jack's desire for privacy.
    It's a perfect scenario for a one-night stand.
    It's not like they're ever going to see each other again... right?
    Right?

    Summary

    "[...] lesbians and gay men writing letters to their lovers and friends faced the special problem of wartime censorship. Military censors, of course, cut out all information that might aid the enemy, but this surveillance made it necessary for gay and lesbian correspondents to be careful not to expose their homosexuality. To get around this, gay men befriended sympathetic censors or tricked others by using campy phrases, signing a woman’s name (like Dixie or Daisy), or changing the gender of their friends. Sailors became WAVEs, boyfriends became WACs, Robert became Roberta. There must exist, hidden in closets and attics all over America, a huge literature of these World War II letters between lesbians and between gay men that would tell us even more about this important part of American history." - Coming Out Under Fire: The History of Gay Men and Women In World War Two, by Allan Berube
