    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

    This is what David's life has been reduced to: trying to revive the fortunes of the Schittsville Bee, a small-city newspaper that is all that is left of the once-mighty Rose News Group.

    When he stumbles on a big story, it only makes sense to swallow his pride and contact his ex-lover, big-time reporter Patrick Brewer, to get some advice.

    The last thing he expects is for said ex-lover to turn up on his doorstep.

    Summary

    “David,” he says, and oh. That’s new. Someone remembering his name, without David having to remind them of it three times. “You should come too. It’s Friday night.” 

    “Huh,” David coughs out, and clears his throat dramatically. He shakes his head a little, and furrows his eyebrows together. “I don’t know, yet, exactly. Mmm.” Patrick’s gaze is unfaltering, and his smile has stretched out across all his features, loud and teasing. “I might have somewhere to be.”

    “Oh, of course,” Patrick’s eyes widen in mock understanding. “I bet David Rose has a plethora of Friday night plans.” 

    Alexis snorts from across the table, and David shoots her a cold glare.

    Patrick throws a house-warming party. David is invited. Things go a little wrong before they go a lot right.

    Summary

    As part of a birthday parcel from a friend, David receives a tiny burlap sac containing two sex dice - one that stipulates location, and the other spelling out position.

    It's kinda like YAHTZEE. Or something.

    Will be a chaptered work of unknown length, but let's face it, it's just smut, so each chapter kinda stands alone.
