    Summary

    Once David's retrieved the two suitcases that carry his only remaining belongings, the driver shifts into reverse and backs away, leaving David alone with the house that has literally haunted his dreams since he was a kid.

    He’d expected it to be less imposing now. That’s what Dr. Lee had told him, during one of their last sessions at the center. Everything looks big when you’re small, right? A bunch of bricks can’t possibly be as scary as he described. Standing here now, though, David can confidently say that Hill House is just as intimidating now as it was back then — maybe even more so, now that he knows what waits for him inside. It towers over him, blocking the light from the sun and covering him in shadow. If that isn’t a metaphor for something, he doesn’t know what is.

    As he stands, frozen, the porch light begins to flicker slowly — on, off, on, off. It’s with a sharp ache in his chest that David remembers Adelina’s rule. He can hear her voice in his head saying, “Porchlight means it’s time to come home.”

    Well, he’s home.

    OR: A ghost story loosely inspired by The Haunting of Hill House.

    Summary

    It’s a rainy Sunday afternoon. Patrick has sent David home while he completes all of the closing tasks at the store, as he usually does on slow days. There’s no need to both stay back and mind the shop when it’s not busy, his husband had said.

    Despite it being late October, there’s still a pleasant crispness to the air, so David has the window in their bedroom cracked just a little. The sound of the rain droplets hitting the window pane complement the Divas mix he has playing off Spotify surprisingly well.

    Lying in bed, David finds he’s had enough scrolling of Instagram and Twitter, finding nothing interesting enough to hold his attention at the moment. He glances around the room and sees two overflowing hampers near the bathroom. Apparently it’s been a while since either of them have gotten around to doing the laundry lately.

    Summary

    Life is lonely when you’re David Rose. So he numbs the pain with alcohol, with drugs, with the touch of a stranger whose name he won’t remember in the morning. He likes the attention, revels in it, but it’s all empty. No one stays. No one cares.

    But when someone does care, when someone wants to stay, David doesn’t know what to do.

    Summary

    The Moulin Rouge was the height of underworld entertainment for the rich and powerful of Paris, a place to escape the everyday and be plunged into a world of lust and thirst. Men wore their finest black tailcoat tuxedos; women like Stevie were adorned in suits or dresses with plunging necklines.

     

    The dance hall swirled with scantily clad entertainers bedecked in jewelry, boas and far more makeup than necessary. It was a riot of colors and fabrics. Entering the hall, we were hit with a wall of music that took my breath away. Stevie gave me a knowing smirk and offered me her arm in escort. The look she gave me said, “You’ll get used to it, move along.” She breezed through the crowd until the five of us were seated in a private box, perfect for watching the show. Champagne and absinthe flowed like fountains, inviting us to give in to our most worldly desires.

     

    “Stevie, are you sure this will work?”

     

    She gazed casually out at the dance floor before turning to me, “No.”

     

    -or-

    The extremely self-indulgent Moulin Rouge AU that *some* of you asked for.

    Summary

    David flips the light on his bedside table off, plunging most of the room into darkness. He returns his phone to the charger. He lays back on his pillow, then turns onto his side. He puts his arm beneath the pillow. Too hot. He puts his arm across the pillow, then bends it, tucking his head into his elbow. Too cold. He pulls the blankets higher. He just can’t get comfortable.

    “Patrick, come to bed, please.”

    Summary

    Patrick could cook. Patrick could milk goats, and fix fences, and ask for what he wanted. Patrick was everything that David had never learned to be, and without the resources that he used to have, he didn’t know what else he had to offer Patrick except for himself. It was selfish, really, wanting to call him. Wanting to insert himself into Patick’s tidy little life of farm chores and business degrees.

     

    Continuing my canon-parallel small-town cottagecore AU retelling (for part one, check out into the wild blue). This fic picks up right at the beginning of Season 2, after the Roses bring David home, and skims over most events of S2 with some beats of S4, all slightly out of order.

    Summary

    Patrick rolls his eyes. “David, you can’t skip dinner. Come on,” he says, grabbing an assortment of cheeses and crackers and taking them through to the back room. David follows him to see him making a little pile in the middle of the room before grabbing a couple of cushions off one of the shelves and placing them on opposite sides of the makeshift picnic.

    Summary

    He had thought about abandoning the wedding altogether. Even with it being months away, and the idea that he might find someone else to bring, he understandably wasn’t interested in watching one more of his fucking friends get their happy ending. Sure, he had already sent his RSVP but he certainly wouldn’t be the first to no show. People might gossip and speculate why he wasn’t there but people gossiped about him regardless. 

    Following a breakup, David attends a friend's wedding for the food, open bar and maybe someone to keep him company for the night if he's lucky. A cute best man that can't wink, a buzzed rooftop phone call and a misunderstanding or two later, David may have found something much better.

    Summary

    “Apparently there’s something called digital—” He stutters to a halt, his brain thankfully absorbing the words before he can finish reading them out. “Um, never mind, we can—”

    “David. I’m willing to — hic! — try anything at this rate.” Before David realises what’s happening Patrick plucks the phone out of his hand, where the words digital rectal massage are still prominently displayed on the screen.

    Summary

    "I leaned in, David. You should try it for once."

    David blows out a breath as the door clicks shut behind his mother. The thing is, she doesn't know just how much David has "leaned in" over the course of his life. He's leaned into the wrong attention — the wrong affection — more times than he can count. He's folded at any hint of flattery, tripped over himself for validation only to fall on his face. David's "leaned in" plenty, thank you. He's "leaned in" his entire life.

    OR: An introspection fic in which David reflects on his relationships and personal growth while deciding what the fuck to do about Sebastien goddamn Raine.

    Summary

    Patrick is fully blushing now, brow furrowing cutely in confusion. “What?” he says again after a moment of buffering. David feels that sinking feeling in his stomach, the one that means he’s messed up. He’s missed a cue, somewhere, and ended up in the wrong place. It’s a familiar feeling.

    “Your, um, the club that you’re in?” David tries, hesitantly. “The, um, the trading?”

    Patrick scrutinizes him. “What do you think the club is for, David?” he asks.

    Summary

    After he's diagnosed with a terminal illness, Patrick blows up his entire life and goes on his dream vacation.

     
    Story is based on the movie Last Holiday. As usual, I’ve only retained the broadest strokes of the movie plot & taken many liberties. You don't need to be familiar with the movie to read this, but I love and recommend it. Queen Latifah is amazing. This was meant to be written with alternating POV by chapters, but David, and especially Patrick, had other ideas and I let them do what they wanted. I think the POV changes are clear, though.

    ***If you need/want assurances about this story before choosing to read it, please click here, but be aware SPOILERS lurk there.***
