For Yuletide, I wrote 15.5K about football, math jokes, and one ever-so-slightly neurotic QB:

This Won't Hurt

Possibly I achieved an overabundance of feelings about the KC Chiefs, possibly (probably) because I wasn't allowed to talk about them. BUT NOW I CAN! (and I will). First things first, though, everybody should probably meet Alex (puckling, let me know if I'm doing this picspam thing right):

[the second part is here]

Say hi, Alex

Alex was drafted in 2005:

As a baby, he looked like this:

Or this:

Or maybe you prefer this?

Or, oh fuck, this:

He had a tumultuous time in San Francisco, where he was sometimes smiley:

The ears, wtf is up with the ears?

Worked hard:

(also managed to have some fun):

And was a huge fanboy of the SF Giants:

And did some "acting":

for the full commercial, see here

And this?

I have no idea what's happening here? Alex proving he is the world's best human?

And did things like testify on behalf of children in foster care (no, seriously):

But the 49ers were a... let's just say inconsistently managed franchise, and often Alex looked more like this:

And like this:

And like this:

They spent a lot of time losing:

or maybe Alex just doesn't like Anthony Davis looking at his ass?

BUT! They got their shit together - they hired firebrand Jim Harbaugh. They strung wins together. They got into the postseason, and in 2012, they were all set to do it again.

And then Alex got hurt.

The rest is history. Alex lost the starting job to Kaepernick, and Kaepernick never gave it up.

And all of THAT will get talked about in a future post! (off to watch the Winter classic and nurse a hangover :)

I got NFL RPF last year, so when I went to go see what was out there this year… I was so happy/awed at your fic. And now a great pic spam to go with it! Hi hi. I am intrigued by your ideas and have subscribed to your newsletter journal. :)

YOU ARE GIVING ME ALL OF THESE FEELINGS I DIDN'T WANT. AKA, yes, you are doing picspams correctly, well done.

I am going to follow you around and shout I LOVE THIS STORY.

I only know two other people who were ever in NFL RPF fandom and they seem to have moved on into Pacific Rim and other things. When I try to search for football slash, I get soccer. :-/ So I am SO SO HAPPY that I gave in to the whim to use this prompt for Yuletide, because I honestly didn't think anyone would sign up to write NFL RPS for Alex Smith for Yuletide, but I figured hey, what could it hurt to ask.
