    Summary

    To him, it’s like fabric. He’s not sure that makes sense, but that’s how it feels. It doesn’t come to him as one big, normal thing. It comes to him as scraps of fabric. Adelina compliments him on his report card, and that’s a scrap. Mom brushes his hair off of his forehead, and that’s a scrap. Dad buys him a tie so they’ll match at the Christmas party this year, a scrap. Alexis hides behind him when the paparazzi get too close on the street, scrap. 
    Problem is: he doesn’t know what to do with them.

    Affection is tricky. And David was never taught how to sew.

    Summary

    "Have you seen Patrick or Stevie yet?"

    David's throat closes up at their names. Fuck, he didn't realize it would be this hard. "Not yet."

    "Well, I know they'd be thrilled to hear you're back," she tells him, sliding his coffee across to him. "Stevie's probably still at the motel right now, but Patrick is at—"

    "Thanks so much, Twyla," David cuts her off with his most charming smile and bolts from the café with his tail between his legs.

    He didn't realize how not ready he was to be back in Schitt's Creek.

    --
    David has been in love with Patrick Brewer since he was 16 years old. Maybe this is the year he'll let Patrick love him back.

    Summary

    Patrick's instinct is to leave, but he’s just noticed something about this guy. “I know you …” he says slowly, uncertainly.
    It’s hardly flattering, but the other guy chuckles. It’s a nice sound, Patrick thinks, cautiously.

    “Yeah,” says the guy, his grin sliding into a smirk. “I think you, uh, tried to flirt with me once.”

    And now Patrick recognises him. A million years ago, at a party he hadn’t thought twice about, before everything really took off, this guy stood in a kitchen, not unlike this one, wearing a shirt blazoned with a mouth and bloody fangs, teasing Patrick.

    OR
    Patrick Brewer has a LOT of baggage. He's absolutely not ready for a relationship.

    OR
    In which the author tries not to spoil anything, and in doing so fails completely at the summary.

    Summary

    “Ugh!” David shouts, trying to figure out how to explain how utterly maddening this man was. “Yes, he was polite, I guess, but the way he said it was like—" he lets out a noise of frustration “—you know that fucking emoji of the moon?”

    “The one with that condescending smile that looks like it probably just did a really bad fart and is proud of it?”

    “Yes!” David points so forcefully at Stevie that he almost falls off the couch. “He may have said polite words but his expression was pure stinky-fart-moon-face!”

    Stevie makes a noise of disgust. “I hate that fucking emoji.”


    David meets Patrick Brewer, a glassblower, at the Elmington Craft Fair and loves his work, but wishes it didn’t come attached to someone so condescending. Not that it matters, because apparently Patrick has no interest in becoming part of the Rose Apothecary brand. It wouldn’t be nearly so annoying if Patrick’s best friend wasn’t about to be David’s newest vendor.
