    Summary

    “I like this for you,” David says as he slides onto the stool beside her, mouth quirked to the side like he's sharing a private joke with himself, and she's the punchline.

    “There's nothing to like,” Stevie insists, taking another sip of her coffee. David and Patrick exchange a look, and now they're both in on the joke. “No, fuck you, don't do that,” she says.

    “Do what?”

    “We're not doing anything.”

    Summary

    Patrick clambers up the stairs before reaching daylight again. It’s joy—pure joy, and excitement, and opportunity, and he can't help basking in it; surrounded by the roaring cheers of hundreds of people from every walk of life waving goodbye to the spectators out on the dock...and one remarkably well dressed man who looked absolutely miserable.

    Five days on the RMS Titanic, where Patrick Brewer, looking for a fresh start, meets David Rose, and everything changes.

    Summary

    Patrick has literally never been sick in their entire four year relationship, is the thing. Barely a sniffle or a sore throat or a summer cold to speak of. His apparently impeccable immune system had unnerved David, who suffered with winter colds and summer allergies that could be scheduled like clockwork. He’d become so adept at managing his own ill health each time it rolled round that he’d felt weirdly put out that Patrick had never needed his expertise.

    But now Patrick is sick, and David feels a little at a loss of how to help him.

    ----

    or: Patrick gets the flu. David learns a new definition of family.

    Summary

    “Um,” he tries, suddenly concentrating very hard on his shoelaces. “I have what is probably a very, very stupid idea. What if… I pretended to be your boyfriend?”

    Or: David thinks he's come up with the perfect mutually beneficial arrangement with Patrick, but it isn't long before things start to get complicated.
