    Summary

    “Don’t go, go on your own or find another date, whatever you want,” Stevie shrugs and reaches over to steal some of his muffin.
    He swats at her hand. “Find another date? The wedding is a two-hour drive away! In Montauk! I’m not driving for two hours with some random, even if I can book separate rooms for the weekend!”
    “Oh god, it’s for the entire weekend and there’s a road trip involved? Now I’m definitely not going with you.” She swipes another piece of muffin.
    “Ugh,” he sighs as he sips his coffee. “Where the fuck am I going to find an acceptable date?”
    “Sorry to interrupt,” Patrick says, suddenly appearing at their table looking a little nervous.


    When David gets a last minute wedding invitation and Stevie refuses to go with him, he needs to find another date - he needs to show his so-called 'friends' (and Sebastien Raine) that he's thriving now. Enter: David's new favourite barista...

    Summary

    Patrick, fresh off ending his engagement, is desperate to not be around people this Christmas. It seems like a long shot that the owner of this cottage, in a town neither he nor anyone he knows has ever heard of, is also looking for an eleventh-hour escape over the holidays, but ... there's this pull in his gut that he's curious about.

    The Holiday AU, part of the Frozen Over festival

    *Update 24/12/21: I couldn't help it. I've added two small extra bits to chapter six. It's been bugging me - nothing is actually changed, just a kind of director's cut.

    Summary

    “How long do I have you for?”

    “For the next 43 hours,” Patrick replies, and the feeling of disbelief in David’s gut morphs into desire, into want, accompanied by something he cannot yet name.

    “Then we better make the most of them.”

    Or, this is your places call for Part Three of Favored Nations. Places.

    Summary

    “Um,” his voice cracks and he clears his throat and tries again, “Um, Patrick can’t come into work today?”

    “Oh?” Alexis asks, keeping the question carefully nonchalant which really only makes things worse. If she’s sparing his feelings then shit surely must be hitting the fan.

    “Yeah.”

    “Did he say why?” Again, meticulously neutral.

    “No.”

    Or, the morning after Grad Night goes somewhat differently when Patrick gets a call from home.
