    Summary

    David trails his hand against the smooth concrete surface of the silo wall on his way back down the ramp from Patrick’s office, thinking about their conversation about upstairs. It’s terrifying when you first see it, Patrick had said. David closes his eyes, putting one foot and then the other on the concrete. He imagines he is walking on the road his family took to get to the silo their last day upstairs. He tries to picture the dull light, the gray-green trees, the warm air closing around him. He tries to focus on the silence, on the tap-scrape pulse of his rubber soles on the pavement. He imagines walking as far as his legs will take him.

    He didn’t even realize how badly he wanted to be free of this place until he sat down in Patrick’s office.

    OR The post-apocalyptic love story no one asked for.

    Summary

    It's hard to miss the double take from the man in a golf polo and shorts as he passes him on the way back to the store. David rolls his eyes and switches Patrick’s tea to his other hand. Normally, David would assume it’s his less-than-bucolic wardrobe that caught the man’s attention. Today, he suspects it has more to do with the way he’s grinning at the blank space in front of him like he’s slightly deranged. God, maybe he is.

    Or, a few snippets of (mostly) marital fluff.

    Summary

    Even though David has volunteered to spearhead the wedding planning and should be good at it, he has been utterly paralyzed when it's come to making any decisions. And now he has to spend the weekend with Patrick's parents visiting some tourist trap and he is not okay.

    Thank you to WhenWhereWhy for the prompt: 'David & Patrick go on a Brewer family vacation, preferably to somewhere that pre-Schitt’s Creek David would deem disgusting but Patrick just wanted to go on vacation with his family so David obliges and he actually has the best time.' This was really fun and thank you for suggesting it. I hope you like it!

    Summary

    and there are some like us,
    just walking, making our feet move ahead of us,
    a little bored, a little lost, a little angry,
    walking as though we were really going somewhere,
    walking as if there was something to see at Adelaide or maybe on King,
    something that will give a fair return for this use of shoe-leather,
    something that will make us smile with a strange new
    happiness, a lost but recovered joy.

    - Raymond Souster, “Yonge Street Saturday Night”
