    Summary

    Pre-Schitt’s Creek canon-divergence.

    Despite the disaster with Barbara Streisand’s vocal coach, Alexis is not quite ready to give up on her singing dreams. Unfortunately, once word gets out, all the other industry professionals suddenly find their diaries full up and in desperation, Johnny turns to the local music school – and its owner, Patrick Brewer – for help.

    Meanwhile David Rose, disappointed at missing the cherry blossom season in Japan, and recovering from his latest romantic misfortune in New York, returns home to lie low for a few weeks.

    They don’t get off to the best start, but soon David can’t deny there’s something about his sister’s vocal coach.

    Summary

    David Rose is autistic.

    He’s always felt odd, but it’s not until after his family is forced to re-locate to Schitt’s Creek that he is able to explore his differences with any degree of curiosity or kindness. Thus begins a very personal trip down a long road filled with realizations, reflections, denial, acceptance, and eventually, the freedom to embrace what has been there all along.

    This is going to be a fairly lengthy series that chronicles important moments in David’s autistic journey.

    Summary

    "David." Clint stops him before he turns to go, lifting a hand and stepping tentatively towards him. He stops short of touching his arm, like he's afraid he might spook him.

    Set during MTP. After the conversation in the motel room, Clint asks David to stay and talk another few minutes, and they have a heart-to-heart.

    Summary

    David knows that he's an acquired taste that most people don't have. And that is especially true for snippy business majors who wear straight leg, midrange demin and talk in sports metaphors. No, David Rose would never be someone Patrick Brewer would want.

    Even if David can't stop thinking about him.

    Summary

    David looks at the photograph again. It’s faded and grainy, captured on an early camera phone, but still his favorite. It lives in a special, carefully chosen frame on his dresser and makes him smile every time he sees it.

    The picture was taken almost ten years ago now, but David remembers like it was yesterday. His 17-year-old self stands in the middle with one arm draped around his best friend, Stevie, the other over Patrick, the beautiful boy who stole his heart.

    Summary

    "—David," Stevie cut him off, visibly annoyed. "Look, I'm not here because everything is all fine between us and I'm ready to hear about how you're roughing it because you're living like a normal person."

    It hit like an ice bucket over his head. Okay, and maybe it'd been wishful thinking to hope that she'd just… gotten over what had happened between them but… that didn't make the cold sting less. He sighed, looking down to watch himself twist his ring around his pointer finger.

    "Then why are you here?" He asked.

    "You need to come home."

    What if David (and Moira's bag) had made it to New York at the end of S1?

    Summary

    It’s 9:30 pm and David settles in for a long study session. He arranges everything just so on the desk he’s seated behind. He takes his laptop out from his black leather messenger bag and puts it directly in front of him. He sets his extra large caramel macchiato, skim, two sweeteners to the right of his laptop, but not too close in case of a spill. The barista even got the sprinkle of cocoa powder just right tonight. Thank god for that. Next is the black leather-bound notebook off to the left and proper black gel ink pen right beside it. He pulls his chair forward and tucks his legs under the desk, planting his feet on the ground. Ergonomics are an important consideration for him too, especially considering how long he’s probably going to be sitting in the same spot.

    A little university AU meet-cute late at night in the library...

    Summary

    Once David's retrieved the two suitcases that carry his only remaining belongings, the driver shifts into reverse and backs away, leaving David alone with the house that has literally haunted his dreams since he was a kid.

    He’d expected it to be less imposing now. That’s what Dr. Lee had told him, during one of their last sessions at the center. Everything looks big when you’re small, right? A bunch of bricks can’t possibly be as scary as he described. Standing here now, though, David can confidently say that Hill House is just as intimidating now as it was back then — maybe even more so, now that he knows what waits for him inside. It towers over him, blocking the light from the sun and covering him in shadow. If that isn’t a metaphor for something, he doesn’t know what is.

    As he stands, frozen, the porch light begins to flicker slowly — on, off, on, off. It’s with a sharp ache in his chest that David remembers Adelina’s rule. He can hear her voice in his head saying, “Porchlight means it’s time to come home.”

    Well, he’s home.

    OR: A ghost story loosely inspired by The Haunting of Hill House.

    Summary

    “There’s something I need to tell you.”
    David frowns at the reflection of Patrick in the bathroom mirror. “Uh-oh.”
    “No, not like that. I just need to warn you about something.”
    David turns to frown at the actual Patrick standing next to him. “Uh-oh.”

    David learns that Patrick's love comes with a disclaimer.

    Summary

    It’s a rainy Sunday afternoon. Patrick has sent David home while he completes all of the closing tasks at the store, as he usually does on slow days. There’s no need to both stay back and mind the shop when it’s not busy, his husband had said.

    Despite it being late October, there’s still a pleasant crispness to the air, so David has the window in their bedroom cracked just a little. The sound of the rain droplets hitting the window pane complement the Divas mix he has playing off Spotify surprisingly well.

    Lying in bed, David finds he’s had enough scrolling of Instagram and Twitter, finding nothing interesting enough to hold his attention at the moment. He glances around the room and sees two overflowing hampers near the bathroom. Apparently it’s been a while since either of them have gotten around to doing the laundry lately.

    Summary

    Life is lonely when you’re David Rose. So he numbs the pain with alcohol, with drugs, with the touch of a stranger whose name he won’t remember in the morning. He likes the attention, revels in it, but it’s all empty. No one stays. No one cares.

    But when someone does care, when someone wants to stay, David doesn’t know what to do.

    Summary

    The Moulin Rouge was the height of underworld entertainment for the rich and powerful of Paris, a place to escape the everyday and be plunged into a world of lust and thirst. Men wore their finest black tailcoat tuxedos; women like Stevie were adorned in suits or dresses with plunging necklines.

     

    The dance hall swirled with scantily clad entertainers bedecked in jewelry, boas and far more makeup than necessary. It was a riot of colors and fabrics. Entering the hall, we were hit with a wall of music that took my breath away. Stevie gave me a knowing smirk and offered me her arm in escort. The look she gave me said, “You’ll get used to it, move along.” She breezed through the crowd until the five of us were seated in a private box, perfect for watching the show. Champagne and absinthe flowed like fountains, inviting us to give in to our most worldly desires.

     

    “Stevie, are you sure this will work?”

     

    She gazed casually out at the dance floor before turning to me, “No.”

     

    -or-

    The extremely self-indulgent Moulin Rouge AU that *some* of you asked for.

    Summary

    David flips the light on his bedside table off, plunging most of the room into darkness. He returns his phone to the charger. He lays back on his pillow, then turns onto his side. He puts his arm beneath the pillow. Too hot. He puts his arm across the pillow, then bends it, tucking his head into his elbow. Too cold. He pulls the blankets higher. He just can’t get comfortable.

    “Patrick, come to bed, please.”
