    Summary

    "There were people there that made me feel like I had never seen another human before. They made me feel like I had never lived. I had seen alcohol, but never crystalline fountains of sun and bubbles that slosh through your very veins and heart, cresting like a halo through my better judgement, a single glass more expensive than my Yale tuition. I had seen girls, but never these wandering, opal beauties that came and went like moths, fluttering and twinkling with an arresting confidence that made me believe every word they said. I had seen men, but never…never David Rose."

    Summary

    "Because standing at craft services, eating a cookie in almost a single bite and still somehow looking perfect, was David Rose.
    This was bad. This was very bad. This was not at all good. In any way.
    Except it was. Obviously. Patrick couldn’t pretend that he hadn’t daydreamed a moment like this; just once or twice as his mind wandered during Miss Henderson’s drier physics classes. But, in the comfort of his own brain, he had imagined a meeting of eyes across a music store, perhaps a chance encounter on a scenic hike. He would be suave and charming and he would know what to do with his hands.
    Patrick did not currently know what to do with his hands."

     

    When Rose Video head office puts out a request for employees to act in its customer service training videos, Patrick Brewer jumps at the chance. What he wasn't prepared for, was his scene partner...

    Summary

    “Can you give me anything else here? Who is he? Why is he unhappy?”

    “David Rose. And I’ll let you figure that out. Let’s just say he’s very protective of his brand and how it’s marketed.”

    “Ah, a client who thinks he’s in advertising - creative is going to love that.”

    “Well, getting to see him and Ray go back and forth during a presentation might be worth the headache. I may even stop by to watch.”

    “Is this your best pitch?”

    “It’s not a pitch, it’s a favor. You don’t have to call him.”

    Patrick shrugged. “You know I like a challenge.”

    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

    David’s not at a Smithsonian. Patrick knows exactly where he is—the White House Mess—because that’s where Patrick sent him while he finished up “this one last statement for my boyfriend.” David told him he didn’t have to, that he has other people for that, but Patrick insisted. He said winning the HRC Visibility Award is a big deal and deserves a big deal announcement, which it is and does, but there was also another reason. A reason that hinged on actually reading the fucking quote, David.

    (David accidentally sends an unproofed statement to print in swat117’s sappy political AU)

    Summary

    The summer break was over, which meant going back to university for David, after some well-earned rest. Stevie did not get as lucky when it came to resting over the break. They were, however, somewhat ready to slip back into old habits, good or bad, and make the most out of their time.
    Patrick was happy to be back. He thrived at uni, and it kept him busy. He had everything one could dream of, and he tried to ignore it when his brain suddenly seemed to tell him something was missing.

    Summary

    David is the infamous son of Moira Rose, former TV star. He used to live for the spotlight, but these days he wished things were a bit quieter -- in fact, his job is banking on it. So when the paparazzi catch him in a not so respectable position outside of a gay club it blows up on the internet and in his face. His boss has one request: shape up and get important donors back or look for a new job.

    This is when David hatches a plan. What if he were to find a clean-cut, respectable boyfriend to take as his plus one to the benefit? His boss couldn't possibly fire him then. Enter, Patrick Brewer the criminal defense attorney who is also in need of a spruced-up social life -- but for different reasons.

    Summary

    Why did no one think he was capable of handling one single briefing? Stevie certainly wasn’t capable today. She couldn’t even say the words press briefing, let alone lead one. And who else was going to do it?

    (six months into the Rose White House in my sappy political AU, Patrick covers for Stevie in the press room)

    Summary

    His new client was tall, dark, and handsome, with cheekbones that could cut glass, and legs that wouldn’t quit.

    *

    Patrick is a detective. David is his mysterious client. There’s a priceless diamond, a masquerade ball, murder, thievery, blackmail, secrets, betrayal, gangsters, smoking, whiskey, and angst galore. (And a happy ending.)

    It’s a film noir AU.

    Summary

    “An aesthetic is something you craft and nurture, perfect over time through nuanced choices and careful exclusions. Is that something that sounds familiar when it comes to…”

    David pauses and lifts his hands from Patrick’s biceps, leaving Patrick embarrassingly breathless with an ache to have his touch return. 

    “This?” David continues, his long fingers gripping the open collar of Patrick’s button down and giving the material a gentle tug.

    Summary

    Patrick fits two fingertips under David’s chin, tilting his head for another kiss, this one deeper, hotter. “Are you thinking what I’m thinking?”

    “Um.” David pauses, puzzled. “We need to bring a Swiss army knife to all future apartment viewings?”

    “Well, yes, that.” Patrick laughs again. This time it’s low and conspiratorial, tickling David’s ear. “But mostly I was thinking we should fuck in here before Ray gets back.”

    “I’m sorry, what - you wanna - what?!
