    Summary

    David and Patrick turn to couples therapy to navigate a challenging year in their marriage.

    [This point of view of this story is that therapy can be helpful. There is no mention of infidelity, vastly different priorities regarding children or lifestyle, or serious consideration of divorce. See the tags for anything else that might be a concern.]

    Summary

    The rest of the house was a manageable project for the two of them once Patrick had reassured David that the distinct aura of the seventies could be easily remedied with a lick of paint and a few replaced carpets. At the time, Patrick had assumed that the lick of paint would be applied mostly by him, having seen first hand David’s disinclination around what he deemed messy or dirty projects. What he didn’t account for was David’s self-professed superior knowledge of the correct aesthetic for their home. After two years and change, he reasons, he should probably have known better.

    ___

    or: David and Patrick repaint the cottage. David, it turns out, contains multitudes.

    Summary

    He should stop. Patrick knows he should stop. Hell, he knows he should have stopped a good ten minutes ago, at this point.
    But he doesn’t want to stop, is the thing.
    Besides, he’s not even sure he would know how to at this point. He doesn’t remember the words for… that, for whatever he was just thinking. He’s sure there’s a word for it, but it’s one of the words that his brain has long-since shoved aside to make room for more important ones, like oh my god holy shit harder more please please please, and, David. Most importantly, David.

    Or, Patrick learns how to want.
