    Summary

    It would be easy because sex is easy. Distraction is easy. Avoidance is easy.

    But trust. Trust is a complication.

    For Ace Week 2021, an Olive Branch coda where David is asexual.

    Summary

    When Patrick warned David that people could see him outside of the store during his "Olive Branch" moment, Jocelyn was the people he was talking about, causing a bit of introspective softness from our favorite Schitt mom.

    Summary

    He decides it’s the freckle.

    The one just above David’s ass, to the right of his spine.

    It’s a perfect circle and it teases the edge of the right dimple at David’s lower back; they’ve just recently become intimately acquainted. Patrick loves to thumb over that perfect, sacred spot repeatedly—a silent promise on the occasions so far that he’s had the opportunity to bury himself deep in David’s impossible heat, his perfect body spread out before him. He traces over it again and again with the rhythm of his hips, and presses bruisingly when he comes.

    That’s the spot he will miss the most.


    Patrick before and after The Olive Branch. Companion piece to Everything I Once Had: from walking away to coming back together.

    Summary

    Patrick follows David to his room closely and wordlessly, a very guilty shadow, and sits on the end of Alexis’s bed and tells him about Rachel and watches him with those sincere brown eyes that could make David do almost anything. David stands with his back to the bathroom door, arms crossed protectively around his body and feet planted firmly, but he still has this sensation in his stomach like he’s falling, the telltale hypnic jerk he sometimes gets lying in bed at night, but constant—an unrelenting, nauseating swoop deep in his diaphragm.

    There are two Patricks now—the one whose ass David has eaten and the one who grew up holding Rachel’s hand.


    After the barbecue, David takes the week to try to understand the people he and Patrick have become thanks to their relationships—old and new.

    Summary

    He wants something more from tonight but he doesn’t quite know what. If Patrick notices his spiraling thoughts on the short walk to Ray’s he doesn’t say anything. He tangles their fingers together and leans in to David’s shoulder, content in the quiet of the moment.

    Once they’re through the door it’s a different story.

    Summary

    After David's olive branch, David and Patrick still have a lot to talk about, both with Rachel and with David's insecurities. They talk it out and come out of it stronger.

    --

    But spending that week apart made him realize that, for the first time in his life, he needed to have an adult conversation about feelings and relationships. He already wanted to crawl out of his skin at the thought, but he couldn’t do this if he didn’t have a sense that Patrick wasn’t about to skip town and leave him in its wake. Which, okay, he had also done his fair share of, but this wasn’t like those other times. For starters, there was no fire escape to crawl down.

    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.

    A number of Patrick's Olive Branches arrive at the Apothecary after he has found out that David has been putting off talking to him.

    Summary

    “Were we broken up?”
    David whirls around, a bath bomb in each hand. “I’m sorry, what?”
    Patrick is focusing a little too intently on the card reader. “You said you needed time. Is that—was it—” His mouth tightens. “Were you just taking some time, or. Was it a breakup?”
    David sets down the bath bombs. He’s not sure how to say this. Especially not in the middle of the store, during business hours, with no time to prepare himself.
    Finally, he asks, “Didn’t you want it to be?”

    Patrick laughed, "yes, David, you're forgiven."

    Patrick bottoms for the first time following The Olive Branch.
