    Summary

    “Well I’m going to run some errands,” David says, brushing a stray bit of fuzz off his navy blue sweater. “But we’re still on for birthday dinner?”

    “Yeah,” Patrick nods. He’s pretty sure David knows the annual birthday surprise party stopped being a surprise after year two or three. David doesn’t even inflict fictional catastrophes on the café as a decoy anymore. But Patrick plays along anyway. In some ways their whole partnership is built on playing along.

    OR David and Patrick have been business partners for a decade until, on Patrick's 40th Birthday, everything changes.

    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.

    Summary

    “Um,” his voice cracks and he clears his throat and tries again, “Um, Patrick can’t come into work today?”

    “Oh?” Alexis asks, keeping the question carefully nonchalant which really only makes things worse. If she’s sparing his feelings then shit surely must be hitting the fan.

    “Yeah.”

    “Did he say why?” Again, meticulously neutral.

    “No.”

    Or, the morning after Grad Night goes somewhat differently when Patrick gets a call from home.

    Summary

    The moment he saw David, Patrick's heart started pounding. Hey, I think I’m in love with you felt dangerously close to being something he wanted to say out loud, even though he knew it would be a terrible idea. Especially this early on. Especially with his business partner. Especially because he’d only recently figured out the whole liking other men thing. Especially because now he was officially—having sex—with the other men. Man. With David. This is fast, he thought.

    *****

    A story about sex, intimacy, and falling in love way before you meant to.

    Summary

    “So, you know in horror movies when the girl’s like: “Oh my god, there’s something in the basement! Let me just run down there in my underwear and see what’s going on in the dark!” and you’re like “What is your problem? Call the police.” and she’s like “Okay!” but it’s too late, because she’s already getting murdered? Well, my story’s kind of like that.”

    Joey was just trying to do something nice for her boyfriend.

    //

    After a horrible breakup with her high school sweetheart Dawson, Joey moves in with Jack, Jen, and Pacey. In other words, a Dawson's Creek (primarily Jacey) AU inspired by New Girl.
