    Summary

    “Hypothetically, David. Not about us, not about me. Just as a concept. Conceptually, what do you think about marriage?”
    David swallows. “Why?”
    “Because it’s what you do.” Patrick goes back to his laundry, goes back to folding his fucking underwear like he didn’t just corner David halfway into a panic attack. “When you’re in a relationship, at some point, you gotta have The Talk. It’s not a plan; it’s just to see if you’re on the same page.”
    David sniffs, hoping it comes across as unimpressed. “Sounds fake.”

    David’s never really thought much about marriage. He’s never had a reason to, before.

    Patrick gives him a reason.

    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

    “Sometimes I don’t wear, uh, boxers. Or briefs.”

    David’s eyes flash. “Excuse me, are you telling me you’re going commando in our store?”

    Our store. Patrick tamps down a giddy smile. “Not commando.”

    “Well then, what - oh.” David shimmies with delight, stalking closer and dancing his fingertips up Patrick’s arms to his shoulders. “Patrick Brewer, what are you wearing?”
