    Summary

    Pre-Schitt’s Creek canon-divergence.

    Despite the disaster with Barbara Streisand’s vocal coach, Alexis is not quite ready to give up on her singing dreams. Unfortunately, once word gets out, all the other industry professionals suddenly find their diaries full up and in desperation, Johnny turns to the local music school – and its owner, Patrick Brewer – for help.

    Meanwhile David Rose, disappointed at missing the cherry blossom season in Japan, and recovering from his latest romantic misfortune in New York, returns home to lie low for a few weeks.

    They don’t get off to the best start, but soon David can’t deny there’s something about his sister’s vocal coach.

    David and Patrick love each other.
    This is the story of how they met, fell in love, lost each other (for a little while), found each other again and navigated their lives throughout the years.

    Summary

    !!!TW!!!

    I just wanted to give you all a heads up because this fic is...a lot.
    Since I see a lot of myself in David and I understand him this fic is kind of reflective of what's happening with me right now and how I've been dealing with things. I love David dearly and I never want him to suffer but tonight I felt like writing this just to kind of vent in a way. You don't have to read this if it's triggering. That's why I put a TW.
    Remember that depression is serious and it's not something to joke about.

    Summary

    Harry Styles showing up at David Rose’s latest gallery opening is certainly unexpected. The way he saves David not only from his asshole ex but maybe even his own self-loathing is nothing David could have seen coming. And it might be exactly what he needs.

    Summary

    The notebook that turns up at David’s door isn’t at all what he was told to expect from the artist who had forewarned David of a gift the morning after the last night of the show at his gallery. Apparently, David and Othello (God, that’s his actual name, David kept reminding himself with a poorly hidden smirk) had very different definitions of what constituted “a little thank you”.

     

    Sometimes, David thinks so much that he can't talk. And when he can't talk, he writes.

    OR, the story of David's little black notebook, and a processing of David's life & emotions through it.

    Summary

    “Wait. I don’t think I caught your name,” Patrick says.
    David looks at him. He wants to say it; he wants to say the name, and its accompanying surname. The name that has filled him both with pride and embarrassment depending on the circumstances. The name that is his key to the city, his password. It’s how he makes friends. It’s how he loses them. God, he’s so tired.
    “No, you didn’t,” David says. And he unhooks his jacket from Patrick’s finger, making sure not to touch his hand, and he leaves.

    Though neither of them remembers it, Schitt’s Creek isn’t the first place that David and Patrick met. Years before, they have a singular unlikely encounter in New York City at night.

    Summary

    Alexis sits down at the foot of his bed, facing away from him. “Don’t freak out, okay?” she says, and before he can snap at her to just get to the point, she lifts the back of her shirt.

     

     

    She lifts the back of her shirt, and there are symbols there where bare skin should be.

    She lifts the back of her shirt, and there are Chinese symbols there where bare skin should be.

    David’s hands fly up to either side of his face as he stares at her lower back in horror. “Oh my god, Alexis, what the actual fuck?”

    She turns to look at him and protests, “I said don’t freak out!”

    David flails his hands, as if the movement could release some of the shock and horror coursing through his body. “You are twelve years old!” he yells. “How on earth did you even get through the door?”

    or

    Five times David takes care of Alexis and one time Alexis takes care of David.
