    Summary

    He exhales a shaky breath and then checks his watch; the train is running late, and the later it gets, the more the anxiety builds at the base of Patrick’s spine. The more his brain whispers this is a bad idea, asks is this really something you’re ready to know? He tries to distract himself by observing the myriad of other people waiting—an older, heavy-set couple wearing matching t-shirts, a large group of loud teenagers with seriously abrasive accents, a distinctly European trio of men arguing in what sounds like German. He assumes they’re mostly tourists; he is, after all, staying near Times Square, and he’s pretty sure any self-respecting New Yorker avoids this particular station at all costs. It’s not like he was dying to eat at a New York City TGI Friday’s himself, but the hotels really did seem to be the best bang for his buck.

    The distant whir of the oncoming train sparks him out of contemplating subpar American food, and he swallows, mouth dry, feeling more like a man on his way to a sentencing hearing than a college graduate on a solo vacation, going to a bar for a drink.

    It’s just a bar. It’s just a drink.


    A handsome stranger falls asleep on Patrick on the subway. Alt meet.

    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.

    Summary

    The man–David, 30, 79 miles away–is giving the camera an imperious stare, thick eyebrows knitted together, dark stubble perfectly highlighting his face, lips parted just slightly. The only word Patrick can think of to describe him is beautiful and even that feels inadequate. He stares at the picture for so long, waiting for his brain to come back online, that his phone screen dims and shuts off.

     

    AU in which David and Patrick meet via a dating app, or the answer to the question, "what if David's 79-mile-away match from 2x07 was actually Patrick?"
