    Summary

    David had his suspicions about this picnic, no matter how carefully he hid them around his mom and sister. Patrick had been far too eager to brush off David's reasonable follow-up questions about what they would eat and where they would go, which was saying something considering Patrick's general indulgence when it came to David.

    But that hadn't been enough on its own. Then David had asked if Patrick minded postponing for an hour or two while he made a quick run to Elm Gulch to drop off some library books and pick up a few that were on hold, and Patrick's face had dropped in a way that would have been too much even for David.

    So David was already looking for flaws.

    And then he saw the gross, unwieldy—and slightly smelly no matter how much Patrick protested—hiking backpacks sitting in the backseat of Patrick's car when he pulled into the motel lot to pick David up.

    That wasn't happening. Patrick tended toward fanatical when it came to his hikes, but David needed those to stay a solo activity.

    Plus, his sweater does not do well with physical exertion.

    Or, David tries to get out of the hike. It (sort of) works.

    Summary

    (Takes place during 5x13 The Hike)

    Minutes after realizing that she'd miss her family, Alexis feels her stomach drop when she checks her phone and sees a stream of missed texts from Stevie.
    "Your Dad's in the hospital. They don't know what's wrong."
    "We're at Elmdale Hospital. He was having chest pain and couldn't breathe."
    "Alexis?"

    Summary

    "My fiancé," Patrick murmurs, and David can feel the smile pressed against his cheek, the bare chest pressed against his own, hot, flushed, and sweaty. Patrick's fingers slot between his where thick bands of gold now rest.

    "Was it really the easiest decision of your life?" David blurts out, unable to stop his thoughts becoming sounds, like a tiny anxiety-demon taking up residence on his shoulder and constantly forcing words from his mouth.

    Fuck.

    -----

    David and Patrick work through some insecurities about getting engaged.

    -----

    TW for brief mention of suicidal thoughts.

    Summary

    David shoots Stevie an angry look, teeth bared, before he moves to sit in the chair next to his boyfriend — his poor boyfriend, who is trying to soothe him while his foot is literally impaled. Like, just by a stick, but still.

    OR: A canon divergence where David takes Patrick to the hospital in 'The Hike' and they run into Stevie, Moira, and Roland at the hospital as they wait for Johnny. Oh yeah, and then he finds the rings. It's a whole thing.

    Summary

    David sighs, because nothing good ever comes from Patrick framing something.

    The first time Patrick framed something he got a business partner. 

    The second time he got a boyfriend. 

    Ok, so maybe Patrick framing things isn’t actually that bad after all. 

    (or, 5 things Patrick frames for David + 1 thing David frames for Patrick)

    Summary

    Summary

    Reasons Patrick would have four gold rings in a box in his laundry hamper: go, he types out on his phone, sending the message to Stevie before he can talk himself out of it. It’s gratifying how quickly the three dots that let him know Stevie won’t leave him alone to stew appear, then disappear. David narrows his eyes at the screen. Something’s going on here.

    omg what, Stevie’s message reads when it finally comes through.

    You already knew then, he sends back.

    Or, David finds the rings a little earlier.

    Summary

    So no, he didn’t go looking for the box. In fact, he didn’t know there was anything to look for, because apparently his boyfriend — is that still the right word? It must be, right? It’s not like Patrick’s asked anything, yet — is good at keeping a secret.

    Summary

    Patrick thinks back, as he packs for the proposal hike, about the first time he met David.
    -OR-
    I timed their first interaction, from when Patrick comes around the corner after Ray calls his name, to when David steps around the corner and goes off-screen as he leaves. Their whole first meeting takes exactly 2 minutes and 11 seconds. This fic should take you approximately that long to read.

    Summary

    “I guess I’m better at picking out rings than frames,”

    “I’d say,” David looked down at his rings again before glancing back up at Patrick. “Though, I would’ve loved any ring you picked out,”

    “That’s sweet, David, but we both know that’s not true,” Patrick laughed. 

    “Okay, fine,” David admitted. “But I still would have said yes,”

    Summary

    Five hikes Patrick took with Alexis, plus one he took with David.

    So I used to come on this hike a lot, when I first moved here, and I was uh, I was developing feelings for this guy I had just gotten into business with. And I didn't know what to do about it because I didn't know if that guy had the same feelings. Or if I'd ever be able to muster up the courage to let him know how I felt. And now, here he is. The love of my life, standing in front of me. And this just felt like the perfect place to ask you to marry me.
