    Summary

    I’m convinced Alexis telling Twyla she was showing David how Bumpkin😉 works somehow got back to Patrick and I’ve always loved “there was a minute when I thought I would never have to look at another dating app.” Then one line of this popped into my head after watching The Jazzaguy today and 20 minutes later, this existed. Enjoy!
    Takes place in bed following whatever David and Patrick did to celebrate their reconciliation 😏

    Summary

    “Oh!” A woman’s voice cuts him off. “I’m sorry. Patrick called us a few days ago from the line so I thought this was his home phone.”

    “Mrs. Brewer?” David asks. “I’m not sure if Patrick, um — I’m David Rose, I—”

    “Own the general store, yes! Or, leased the general store.” And if he didn’t know before that this woman was Patrick’s mother before, he definitely does now.

    --

    Moments of David and Patrick's relationship, as seen through David's conversations with Marcy Brewer.

    (or, 5 times David & Marcy talk before Meet the Parents, and 1 time they talk after)

    Summary

    He decides it’s the freckle.

    The one just above David’s ass, to the right of his spine.

    It’s a perfect circle and it teases the edge of the right dimple at David’s lower back; they’ve just recently become intimately acquainted. Patrick loves to thumb over that perfect, sacred spot repeatedly—a silent promise on the occasions so far that he’s had the opportunity to bury himself deep in David’s impossible heat, his perfect body spread out before him. He traces over it again and again with the rhythm of his hips, and presses bruisingly when he comes.

    That’s the spot he will miss the most.


    Patrick before and after The Olive Branch. Companion piece to Everything I Once Had: from walking away to coming back together.

    Summary

    Stephanie "Stevie" Budd had a… complicated relationship with gender. And sex. And family.
    Complications can be ignored though, since she’s allergic to sincerity

    Summary

    Patrick follows David to his room closely and wordlessly, a very guilty shadow, and sits on the end of Alexis’s bed and tells him about Rachel and watches him with those sincere brown eyes that could make David do almost anything. David stands with his back to the bathroom door, arms crossed protectively around his body and feet planted firmly, but he still has this sensation in his stomach like he’s falling, the telltale hypnic jerk he sometimes gets lying in bed at night, but constant—an unrelenting, nauseating swoop deep in his diaphragm.

    There are two Patricks now—the one whose ass David has eaten and the one who grew up holding Rachel’s hand.


    After the barbecue, David takes the week to try to understand the people he and Patrick have become thanks to their relationships—old and new.

    Summary

    There are moments in every long-term relationship where everything fundamentally changes, moments where each person recognizes ‘this is the one, this is it for me’. And while both Patrick and David had brief hints of those feelings, this is an introspection of when each man knew they were in this for the long haul.

    Summary

    He can do this. He can love Patrick and not tell him and live with that. Alexis has done it, she’s living her life knowing she’s in love with Ted and not telling him that and just accepting that for herself. Alexis is managing it. If Alexis can manage it then David can manage it. David needs to be able to manage it. Patrick wants to focus on the business and David needs to do that, for Patrick. Because he loves Patrick. And perhaps loving Patrick can just look like this, for now. Doing what Patrick needs him to do and being what Patrick needs him to be. David took his week-long selfish and he figures it's time to be selfless. For Patrick.

    or: the olive branch but make it worse before it gets better again.

    Summary

    Patrick, I've never liked a smile as much as I like yours. I've never felt as safe as I do when I'm with you. I've never known love like I have when we're together. It's not been an easy road for me, but knowing that you will always be there for me at the end of it makes everything okay. Patrick Brewer, you are my happy ending.

    Summary

    "Yeah, well, all you had to do was sit in a chair and watch me make an ass of myself," Dan grumbles, waving his glass around dangerously, but an easy grin spreads across his face.

    "Easiest reacting of my life," Noah says, holding Dan's gaze as he tips the bottle to his lips.

    Dan's used to it by now - the hopeful flutters in the pit of his stomach, swelling up and up until they crush his lungs. He's used to pasting on a playful smirk and squashing that hope down into something small enough to breathe again.
