    Summary

    After he's diagnosed with a terminal illness, Patrick blows up his entire life and goes on his dream vacation.

     
    Story is based on the movie Last Holiday. As usual, I’ve only retained the broadest strokes of the movie plot & taken many liberties. You don't need to be familiar with the movie to read this, but I love and recommend it. Queen Latifah is amazing. This was meant to be written with alternating POV by chapters, but David, and especially Patrick, had other ideas and I let them do what they wanted. I think the POV changes are clear, though.

    Summary

    Shakespeare said, "Journeys end in lovers meeting," which is an extraordinary thought. To think that we all spend our lives on a quest to be loved, and we can rest like the hero victorious once we find it — well, it’s a nice idea, isn’t it? It may even be true... for some people.

    For people like David Rose and Ruth Clancy, however, love has always been a little bit complicated… It hasn’t been freely given or simply found; it’s something that’s always been earned or bought.

    See, because Shakespeare also said that “love is blind,” — and, with that, they can agree.

    They’ve certainly never felt like it looked at them twice.

    OR: After discovering that his parents have secretly funded (ahem, bribed) his way to success, David Rose turns to one of his favorite romantic comedies for comfort... and advice. He ends up swapping homes with a similarly career-minded Canadian named Ruth for a much-needed solo vacation. While Ruth navigates bustling New York City, David settles in a cozy small-town cottage in Nowhere, Ontario. As it turns out, they may have been looking for happiness in all the wrong places all along.

    Summary

    David has a clusterfuck of a day while living in Schitt’s Creek.
    Patrick has an overwhelming day as he moves into town.
    David and Patrick don’t know each other (yet) but their lives intersect continuously throughout the day and night.
    A meet-ugly turns into an awkward meet-cute, resulting in so much mutual pining and self-discovery. And hot, tender smut, with a smattering of hilarity thrown in.
