halfabreath:

some suggestions for fields/professions/specific jobs just so we can mix things up:

bitty:

  • a food critic
  • a sommelier (wine expert – he got the palate for it)
  • marketing
  • editor
  • cookbook author
  • nutritionist 
  • i know he doesn’t like to study but imagine him as a college prof please it’s so cute guys
  • literally anything other than a baker/working in a bakery/owning a bakery like i know it makes sense but let him do other things pls

jack:

  • gm for a hockey team
  • author
  • physical therapist
  • model
  • any kind of coach
  • athletic director for a university
  • the guy who comes up with those ridiculously specific stats for NHL.com (ex: at one point the Blue Jackets won their last five games on dates with repeating numbers. (ex: 1/1, 2/2, 3/3, 4/4, etc.)
  • shout out to all the historian!jack fics out there

lardo:

  • museum curator
  • literally any management position
  • gallery owner
  • industrial designer
  • graphic designer
  • jewelry designer idk
    • there’s a post somewhere about her designing nhl goalie masks and i love that idea so much but i cannot find the post
  • don’t just say she’s an artist, give her something specific to do

shitty:

  • writer for How to Get Away with Murder specifically
  • law school prof
  • journalist
  • community activist/organizer
  • politician
  • lobbyist
  • there are so many subsets of law! don’t just make him a lawyer – have him do family law or immigration or environmental or contract or real estate or hell, just state if he’s in prosecution or defense 

holster:

  • nhl referee
  • sports analyst
  • hedge fund manager
  • radio personality
  • voice actor
  • auctioneer 
  • screenwriter 
  • stay at home dad

ransom:

  • biomedical engineer
  • nutritionist 
  • zoologist
  • college prof (there’s a post about this floating around somewhere)
  • something in sports medicine/orthopedics 
  • and if you do make him a doctor there are so many interesting specializations! also, remember that med school and residency take a long time – he’s not going to be an established doc until late 20′s at the earliest 
    • A L S O – Ransom is Canadian and I feel like the healthcare differences between the US and Canada will probably affect his schooling/job?? does anyone have more information about this?

nursey:

  • playwright
  • journalist
  • copywriter
  • freelance writer
  • editor of either books or online publications
  • teacher or professor (he could create the Woke Poets Society)
  • defenseman in the nhl (where are the NHL!nursey fics??)

dex:

  • CIA analyst (idk where this one came from but it sounds interesting)
  • app developer
  • tech expert/the guy who reviews the newest products and tears them apart like can you imagine him grumpily telling the internet why macs are too expensive?? perf
  • handyman or mechanic 
  • nanny (does he actually have a thousand siblings or is that fandom lore?)
  • the angriest google employee

chowder:

  • the new sun when ours inevitably burns out
  • honestly i’m 100000000% here for NHL chowder 
  • game developer
  • goalie coach
  • video coach for an nhl team
  • there are literally so many jobs in tech that i do not know about so I will just but the ubiquitous ‘Coder’ whatever that means
  • consultant
  • engineer

the post about ransom being a bio prof was probably mine

ETA:

*ahem* also, i think dex would be the type of person who’s partial to Nerdy Sports Analysis a la fivethirtyeight, which does not have very many (any?) hockey writers right now, or a model for predicting outcomes in hockey games, hmm….

and then, regarding chowder–him being a cs major is mostly fanon that developed from tweets about him being better at an intro class than dex, but tbh because he’s from the bay area and went to a private school, it’s likely that he took AP Java, had a really good teacher, and joined FIRST Robotics while dex, the public school kid from maine, wasn’t able to do any of those things. 

but chowder reminds me a lot of one of my dear friends, who is a physics major (with an astro concentration)/cs minor, really nice and genial and from the bay area, whose dream career is to work for NASA. so. let chowder go to space. 

finally, the radio bitty head canon by @stultiloquentia is one of my favorites.
