    Great tribute to our Sarah/Twyla! And the dishwasher from Elmdale was a nice touch!

    Summary

    David knows this line of work isn’t for everyone, and it isn’t even something some people are willing to talk or think about. And he knows that’s part of why he loves it. Ever since the first afternoon he’d walked into the mortuary, armed with a case of discount makeup and a healthy fear of what he was about to see, he’d been surprised at how well the funeral industry suited him.

    Oh my! Like so many of the others here have already commented, I was SOBBING while reading this. David working as a Funeral Director felt initially odd but yet it perfectly fits his sense of formality, good manners and doing what is “correct“ for the occasion. Imagining himself and Patrick in the future and their wonderful continuing love story right now was beautifully written. And, congratulations on your SIXTY fanfics. I am still making my way through all of them and love your style and approach. Please don’t stop writing!

    Summary

    He gets three strides into the office-slash-storage space before he realizes exactly what he just did.

    Oh fuck. Oh no. No no no. He couldn’t have just casually kissed Patrick, his business partner, whom he is 87% sure is straight, as though it was something they do every day and -

     

    Fuck.

    **Now with Patrick's POV in Chapter 2!**

    Love this! Perfect blend of canon and alternate canon and such a great twist to have that accidental kiss! Wonder how they got through the day!? So much build up. So much desire. And this: “They just fit together, like two puzzle pieces, perfectly interlocking.” And, of course Patrick’s neck kisses 😘 (which you can tell I have a soft spot for from my chosen emoji.)
    And then: “He takes the opportunity to kiss him there, again, in a spot he’s confidently claiming as his own.” Perfect choice of words as I’ve always felt this one belonged to and for Patrick.

    Summary

    “What, Patrick? Do you need help burying a body?” Even that might not be worse than the worst thing he’s helped Alexis do.

    Patrick laughs. “No! God no, David. I just need a ride to my dentist on Friday.”

    “Oh, that’s all?” It’s not that it’s no hassle to get the family car, but it’s basically no hassle to get the family car. Which Patrick knows, because David can’t help but mention it pretty much any time the subject of cars comes up. The look on Patrick’s face, the way he’s biting on his lower lip, sets off alarm bells in David’s gut. “That’s not all?”

    “No, I mean. It is. Only. I’m getting my wisdom teeth out."

    So much good to say about this! My heart broke that D&P missed the birthday date opportunity and had to wait for so long to get together. And this end line says all that so beautifully:
    “David Rose isn’t naive. He knows that there will be conversations — long ones, short ones, ones that chip away at the walls they’ve both built and the lies they’ve both told and all the ways they’ve failed to see what’s clearly in front of them both.”

    So sad to think how many of us have been terrified to be vulnerable and share our true feelings with another. I wonder how my life might be different today had a spoken up. Thank you for writing and sharing this!

    Summary

    On a trip to New York to visit Alexis for Christmas, David is shot by an unknown assailant. Devastated by the death of his husband, Patrick returns to Schitt’s Creek to lean on friends and family as he struggles to rebuild his life in the wake of an unthinkable tragedy.

    Uncertain of who he is without David by his side, Patrick feels lost until he meets a man who understands exactly what he’s going through. With the support of his new friend, Patrick confronts the demons from his past and ultimately learns the power of love in healing a broken heart.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Haven’t finished the series yet but it’s definitely one to be bookmarked. So so sad to think of Patrick ending up alone after David dies. Brings back memories of experiences of deaths I have had in my own life. The grief described here is palpable and many tears have been shed reading this. Even though it’s so heartbreaking, I guess I’m looking forward to find out where it all ends. I hope Patrick finds love again although he will never ever forget his David. 😭
    😭😭
    Chapter 12:
    So great to get a peak at some of Patrick’s past and how difficult it was for him to admit that he was gay. What a great journey he is having here in his childhood bedroom for self-reflection and to remember how truly lucky he was to met and fallen in love with David. Thank you for continuing this story.

    Chapter 13:
    Thank you so much for another wonderful chapter. So great to have Patrick thinking about his high school days and how much he’s changed and grown. So heartwarming to see him with a family of gay men and starting to think about the possibilities of his own future without his David. Can’t wait to read more. ❤️
