    Summary

    Follow up to Fitful Dreams of Some Greater Awakening

    “I love that part!” she shrieks, laughing as she burrows against David in delighted fear, looking vaguely like a bush baby.

    “You’re a sociopath.” David shakes his head, but he’s smiling as she piles a bit closer, pulling her legs up and angling herself towards David’s body. David’s other hand finds her small bare knee and holds it reassuringly, his dark eyes full and warm. Patrick’s gaze lingers on David’s hand where it squeezes Stevie’s knee, enveloping it easily with his large palm and long fingers, olive against her pale, smooth skin. Stevie has her hands tucked between her thighs, pulled into the sleeves of the sweatshirt she borrowed from Patrick and Patrick’s mouth is dry. He tries to focus back on the movie but there’s something foreign curling up in his chest that he can’t quite feel the edges of, and it has his heart racing.

    Our favorite trio explores the merits of redrawing the boundaries of their relationship.

    Summary

    “Come with me,” he’d said, hands tracing along Patrick’s shoulders. “We can go to New York together. My family has money now — we can do whatever we want, go wherever we want.” He’d moved his hands to cup his face, thumbs gently brushing against his cheeks. “You’re too good for this town.”

    Patrick had recoiled at David’s words like they’d been some kind of heavy accusation, rather than a compliment. And that’d been it: the beginning of the end. Though David never would’ve guessed that’s where the conversation had been headed at the time. If David had known, he would’ve slammed on the brakes before they’d careened off the track. He would’ve pulled the lever to change course. He would’ve done anything, if he’d known then what he does now.

    When David returns to his hometown for the holidays, he reminisces about his first love and where things went wrong. He doesn't expect to, y'know, hook up with that ex, be mistaken as 'back together' by that ex's mother, and end up faking a relationship for Christmas Eve. That wasn't really the plan, but 'tis the season, amirite?

    Summary

    David & Patrick meet at an outdoor music festival at exactly the right time and let’s just say, they fall hard and fast.
    Basically an excuse for me to get these boys dancing because we just didn't see that enough!
    Fair warning: There will be some festival typical drug use but everything is safe as possible. The Roses’ and I believe in a harm reduction approach to drug use :)

    This is going to be very very romcom level fluffy with an abundance of unrealistic vulnerability (particularly from David) due to the unique environment.
