    Summary

    David sighs, because nothing good ever comes from Patrick framing something.

    The first time Patrick framed something he got a business partner. 

    The second time he got a boyfriend. 

    Ok, so maybe Patrick framing things isn’t actually that bad after all. 

    (or, 5 things Patrick frames for David + 1 thing David frames for Patrick)

    Summary

    "Where’re you headed next?" Maggie asks.

    "Omaha for a drop-off," the girl says, "then Des Moines for a pickup. Not sure where after that, just hoping to stay on the road for awhile." She hands over a visa, and Maggie takes it to the till just a couple of feet away.

    Maggie cocks an eyebrow while she runs the card. "Where's home?"

    "National City. Well, the suburbs."

    Maggie whistles. "Long haul indeed."

    The girl shrugs. "I didn't take this job because I wanted to be home."

    Summary

    “You’re either very impatient or extremely sure of yourself,” he says, a little bit biting, because it’s all Patrick’s fault he’s off-kilter anyway. It doesn’t feel fair that Patrick gets to laugh at him when if Ray was doing this little interview, David would be just fine.

    “Threw you a bit of a change-up there, huh?” Patrick replies, quick, grinning so hard he’s practically glowing, and all David can think is yes, yes you fucking did.

    Or, everything is the same but David is an empath who can feel other people's emotions through touch.

    Summary

    David makes Patrick pretend they are the fathers of Roland Jr. to convince a client to work with them. But actually thinking about fatherhood gives David complicated feelings.

    Or, a rewrite of "A Whisper of Desire" in which Patrick is the one who walks in during the business deal, not Roland.

    Summary

    It still doesn’t explain why there is a small being manning their store, swinging his legs back and forth like he’s just pleased as punch to be there.

    “What the fuck?” David blurts, and the kid’s eyes blow wide.

    “That’s a bad word,” he whispers.

    “Um…” Fuck, now what? “It… is.” Is he supposed to apologize? Oh my God, is this what parenthood is? Constantly saying sorry for your fuck ups? That you can’t actually call ‘fuck ups’ because your kid will call you out on inappropriate verbiage?

    Or, David and Patrick befriend a single mom and her son. Well, Patrick does. David is still feeling things out.
