    Summary

    Patrick wanted to take things slow, and by god, David was trying. But David has never taken anything slow before, and it’s harder than he expected.
    It should be fine. It’s just that David has always been too much. Too much of everything, really. The list of people he’s driven away by being too needy, too emotional, too opinionated, is too long to be quantified by Western mathematical principles. And yes, it hurt when they left, some more than others. But he’s never felt the way he does about Patrick. He’s never cared so much about making a relationship work than he does about this one. And he’s so scared that he’s going to be too much for Patrick that he’s moving at an entirely unfamiliar glacial pace, letting Patrick pull him along.

     

    Or, yet another take on the Night at Stevie's.

    Summary

    The front door creaked as David came in. When he saw Patrick in the front room, he wiped at his face, shaking his shoulders to hide the movement. Patrick crossed the room in two steps. Arms open in a silent request for absolution. David folded him into his arms, seeking and giving comfort in equal measure. Patrick let his forehead settle against David's neck, coming to rest in the space he'd long ago claimed as his own.

    _

    Summary

    “Something I can help you with, David?”

    David hesitates, playing with the sleeve of Patrick’s t-shirt.

    “Can you read that to me?”

    Patrick eyes him, puzzled.

    “It’s the sports section, David.”

    David sighs, flopping his hands in his lap.

    “I know it’s a dumb idea, you don’t have to, I just thought it might…help. With the, you know. Not sleeping.”

    David can't sleep. Patrick helps.

    Summary

    "Good morning."

    David groaned, "is it?"

    Patrick squinted against the sun, laughter gravelly with sleep. He grinned when he caught David's eye.

    "Yeah, so far."

    .
    .
    David was in the habit of falling for strangers pretending to love him.
    Too bad their arrangement was nothing but a mutually beneficial PR stunt.

    Summary

    It happens every so often, usually after a particularly stressful day at the store, or perhaps after staying up too late to watch an action-packed movie while David is asleep. Rachel told him he did it, and it only took a few months in his apartment when David started noticing, too. 

    Patrick was a sleep-talker, though he neither confirmed nor denied this. At first, David was freaked out by it, always waking Patrick up if he heard it. But as the years came and went, David got used to it. In turn, it provided an unexpected benefit.

    Summary

    “Okay, David,” Patrick laughs, bringing the bowl of fruit and the knife closer to his husband. “What?” He gives David a questioning look.

    David lifts his arms out in front of him, in a move not unlike that of a toddler asking to be picked up, and gives Patrick a pointed, but teasing look.

    “You’re very lucky you’re cute,” Patrick grumbles, but diminishes any meaning behind his words with a soft kiss to the tip of David’s nose.

    OR

    David and Patrick making breakfast together on a spontaneous day off after an anxious night.
