    Summary

    Dating Beard is almost exactly how Ted imagined. It’s like levelling up their friendship—all the good stuff plus a bit more. What Ted didn’t foresee is just how much that bit more would prove distracting to his daily tasks.

    The sequel to wavelength, in which Ted and Beard love meeting each other's needs (but really fucking hate having needs of their own).

    Summary

    Eyes on the empty space where all the bars he’s ever been in keep their taps, he gives voice to something he’s been too afraid to say. Something he couldn’t even tell Rachel. “I don’t know what I want.”

    Patrick looks at David again. His gaze keeps returning to him, like he’s magnetized or something. He’s never watched someone this closely. When they made a drink, that is. At his old bar, the one a few blocks from their old apartment, most of the mixed drinks were half rum, half Coke.

    David slides the drink across the bar. “Then it might be time to find out.”

    ***

    Or, Patrick runs away to Toronto. David is the bartender--ahem, mixologist--at the bar he finds nearby.

    Summary

    Patrick Brewer of all people sliding into his DM's is intriguing.

    Because just two days ago, David stumbled across Patrick Brewer's Raya profile.

    He remembers a single black-and-white photo of a clean-cut looking guy, wearing a baseball cap and laughing, his face turned away from the camera so it's seen mostly in profile. He had a great smile. David was struck by the way his eyes crinkled in the corners, by how genuine he looked.

    PATRICK, 30
    @patrickbrewer
    Lives In: Toronto, ON
    From: Toronto, ON
    Work: MLB Baseball

    David swiped right without reading further.

    PROFILE NOT FOUND.

    Okay...

    ---

    Patrick Brewer, the MVP of last year's World Series and a viral social media star, has a bit of a crush on David Rose, a gallerist living in New York City and occasional guest star on his sister's reality show. He convinces himself to do something about it - after all, he's only in town to play the Yankees for a few nights.
