Patrick laughed and then reached for Gus’ hand, turning it
so that it was palm up and gingerly placing the boat upon it. “F-f-for you,” he
explained a little shyly. “To…to cheer you up. N-n-not that you r-really
n-n-need it today, but l-lately…. I mean I d-didn’t know you were d-doing
b-b-better, I just…. Well, it’s d-dumb, but—”
“Thank you,” Augustus murmured.
Patrick flushed, holding Gus’ hand for a second longer and
then letting go to stuff his own into the pockets of his jeans. “You can f-fold
it to store it and k-keep it from wrinkling.”
This Augustus did, folding the boat along its creases and
then swinging his backpack around to his front so that he could slip it inside
for safekeeping. There was a bird merrily chirping in the tree nearby. He
wondered whether it could have been the parakeet Tobias was tracking. The last
he’d heard it was still cleverly eluding his grasps.
“S-s-sorry,” Patrick said, glancing at him uneasily. “I
sh-shouldn’t have b-brought it up. I—”
“What? No, it’s—it’s okay,” Augustus said. “Don’t worry about it.”
Patrick opened his mouth to say something else, but Gus’
phone emitted a particularly loud tri-tone, causing them both to startle. He’d
forgotten that he’d turned his volume up in case Gemma called.

Word Count: 3,311
Pairing: Patrick x Reader
A/N: omfg the ending is so weird but idk how to write endings lol
Everyone on TV loses their virginity at 16
and all your friends have done just about the same, thus making you feel like a
total loser for being almost 18-a senior in high school-and still a virgin.
Your best friend, Patrick, still is as well so you don’t feel completely lame
because he’s gorgeous and kind and smart and yet he’s never even kissed anyone.
So there isn’t anything wrong with you, it’s just hard to fuck someone when
you’re in love without someone else. Patrick, you’re in love with Patrick, you just
haven’t told him or anyone else.
Of course somehow you get it into your head
that losing your virginity will help you move on from Patrick so you end up
making out with some asshole at a party. He tastes like cheep beer and
menthols, his hands feel unwelcome on your skin but you let him touch, waiting
for him to take you upstairs. He doesn’t get the chance, someone pulls you away
and you’re stumbling through the crowd of drunken idiots and out into the hot
nearly summer air. It’s dark but the heat isn’t letting up, not even a breeze
and you glare over at…Patrick?
“What did you do that for?” You ask, not
sounding nearly as annoyed as you wanted to. You can’t remember what the guy
you were with looked like, much less his name. You hope he doesn’t ask.
“You looked uncomfortable and I know that
isn’t like you,” He explains. He looks nervous, he always does at parties, he
doesn’t fit in and everyone knows it.
“You don’t get to pick who I kiss,
Patrick.” You wish he did, maybe then he’d pick himself.
So I’m out to dinner with my cousins and aunts, and one of my aunts starts to bring up how she can’t understand how people can ship the members of the bands they like, or those two guys from Supernatural( Dean and Cas). Now keep in mind that I do do these things so I’m trying very hard not to freak out, which is kind of hard considering things I secretly do aren’t normally talked about. Anyway, she kept going on and I had to keep saying it’s the interactions between those people, and if we’re being honest I don’t know why I ship those people, I just do. The whole time I kept wishing for the subject to change and when it did I was relieved. ………yeah I should probably go charge my phone since it’s at 1%..yeah, okay…..bye
Summary: You find out your boyfriend has been cheating on you with your best friend. Patrick is one of your other friends who has a huge crush on you. You end up at his house looking for alcohol and some comfort.
Pairing: Patrick Stump X Reader
Warning: Smut at the end
You walked down the street after your shift at the local bar ended. It wasn’t too late; only about 11. On a Saturday night, the city was alive with people from the suburbs looking for a good time. Chicago was home, despite its problems. You walked quickly past the street performers and beggars. You wished you could help them all but seeing them everyday has desensitized you.
You hugged your bag closer to you when a group of drunks called at you. You tried to use your bag to cover up what your uniform didn’t. You wore black jeans with converse and a red tank top that did little to cover your chest.
“Oh, come on baby girl! Don’t be like that. We know you just wanna have a good time,” one guy said. Two of them had started following her, catcalling. You gripped your house keys in your hand, ready to defend yourself.
“Leave me alone. I want nothing to do with you,” you said. Not much farther and you would be at your building. One of the guys grabbed at your shoulder and you jerked away. “Don’t touch me,” you yelled. You started running. You looked behind you to see if they had come after you. You ran into someone while you weren’t looking. You started to struggle, worried it was one of the guys.
“Woah, hey Y/N. It’s just me. It’s ok, it’s just me.” Hands gripped your arms to calm you down. You looked at your friend with the beautiful hazel eyes. Patrick Stump. You relaxed and let out a deep breath.
“Patrick. I’m sorry. There were these guys and… I just thought you were one of them.” He smiled and pet your head gently. He was a couple years older than you so he had kind of become like a big brother. A very attractive, funny, sweet, big brother. Him and the rest of his band all watched out for you.
“Nah, it’s just little old me. Figured I would come by to show you the new track we’re working on,” he said. “Are you ok? They didn’t hurt you?” His tone became serious and his hand ran through your hair. You blushed slightly and turned to walk up the steps of your building.
“I’m alright, Trick. I think you scared them off,” you said with a slight laugh. He shook his head and followed you into the elevator. You pressed the button for the 13th floor and up you went. The ride was quiet but it was never awkward with Patrick.
This week’s Reflection is based on another contrast I saw that I haven’t seen pointed out yet. I’ve actually seen a few parallels to 2x06 mentioned (and there are lots, I’ve noticed), but I haven’t seen anyone mention this one. Here are two scenes that struck me in both their similarity and their remarkable difference (and thanks again to @mg-bsl381 for the 6x03 screencap). More thoughts (with mention of the 6x04 SPOILERS) follow:
