    Summary

    David had missed one phone call and now his life is falling apart. Well, okay, he’d missed like three months of phone calls, but who could blame him when things at the gallery had been so hectic? He’d made one tiny mistake, and now he has no choice but to go crawling to the last person who would ever want to help him. How the fuck is he supposed to convince Patrick to marry him when his own boyfriend won’t?

    Or, a very loose adaptation of The Proposal

    Summary

    The Brewers are an old Irish Mafia family, known to be cold, calculating businessmen. Patrick is the numbers guy, diligent and methodical, so he knows what the loss of the Rose video empire means, not only for them but for his own family. The monetary loss isn't a concern for people like the Brewers, but the loss of face absolutely is.

    Unfortunately, Patrick can’t throw stones.

    His parents have been touting his upcoming marriage for months, inviting all the most important people, but now he’s gone and broken it off with Rachel for reasons not even he understands.

    When the Roses offer a marriage of convenience in exchange for their debt being eliminated, it's an offer Clint "Carbon" Brewer can't refuse.

    Summary

    "Have you seen Patrick or Stevie yet?"

    David's throat closes up at their names. Fuck, he didn't realize it would be this hard. "Not yet."

    "Well, I know they'd be thrilled to hear you're back," she tells him, sliding his coffee across to him. "Stevie's probably still at the motel right now, but Patrick is at—"

    "Thanks so much, Twyla," David cuts her off with his most charming smile and bolts from the café with his tail between his legs.

    He didn't realize how not ready he was to be back in Schitt's Creek.

    --
    David has been in love with Patrick Brewer since he was 16 years old. Maybe this is the year he'll let Patrick love him back.

    Summary

    “What are you doing here?”

    Patrick blinks beneath the toque shoved onto his head, steadily dripping melting snow from his coat onto the mat they once purchased together. “Um… it’s my weekend."

    What? David is already shaking his head, but Patrick takes a step forward, eyes wide, skin pale despite his cold-flushed cheeks.

    “I get Christmas. You get New Years. I thought..." Patrick trails off and licks his lips. Behind him, snow blows in through the still-open doorway. "I thought that's what we agreed."

    Or, the exes-stuck-in-a-cabin fic I wrote totally and completely for myself.
