A.N- Alrighty, my people. This is going to be a short, 5 chapter series of...well, you'll just have to see I guess. I warn you the chapters are going to be short, but that's because it's supposed to be like snapshots. It's angst, of course. Surprise surprise.

Disclaimer- I don't own the Mighty Ducks...It comes as a big shock, I know.

-Prologue-

You go through life with a smile on your face; everyone's got a mask to hide his or her inequities. Let's face it, no one wants the world to know about his or her imperfections. Sometimes it slips through, though.

Sometimes no matter how hard you try, you'll always be a screw-up.

Sure, you can play the game you love with all of your friends. That makes it all better, right?

You can hide behind the scholarship to Eden Hall. Attending a school in which the leaves on the trees in the courtyard are worth more than your life makes it all better, right?

You can try your hand at love. Finding a nice girlfriend to focus on and give your heart to makes it all better, right?

You can put your soul into trying to save your deteriorating marriage, no matter how bad it gets. If you struggle hard enough, it'll all get better, right?

Wrong.

Because no matter how much you love the game, you always blow the shot.

And no matter how prestigious the school, you'll never fit in.

No matter how hard you try, you'll never add up to her expectations.

No matter how desperately you try to keep something solid in your life, it always slips away easier than you can let go.

You'll never be enough.
