for the au where jack is on broadway and davey wrote the book, can you do something with people flirting with Jack at the stage door? (bonus Jealous!Davey)
I really like this AU ^.^ I hope you like the fic! Thanks for the prompt.
Davey didn’t see the show of his book as often as he’d like to. There was something magical about seeing his characters brought to live and the creative team had done an incredible job with the score; it also didn’t hurt that his boyfriend was playing the lead and there was nothing Davey loved more than watching Jack act, even if he did always reflexively flinch when he had to kiss the other male lead. But writing another book took time and effort and he had a deadline that meant seeing the show more than once a month was impossible.
Settling for nightly feedback from Jack, Davey was kept up to date with who had fallen down which set of stairs or forgotten which line, laughing at Jack’s dramatic reenactments, but he was also informed on the nature of stage door that evening. A popular show with a young cast that was pretty active on social media was bound to draw a quick fanbase, Davey soon learnt, and that fanbase was mainly made up of teenage girls. As Jack told the stories they weren’t harmful in any way, they were just a little full on. There were definitely girls who had seen the show far more than he had himself and he couldn’t help but get a little jealous that these strangers had seen Jack with his shirt off close to 40 times in less than a year, if the numbers they quoted at stage door were accurate. Not that Davey didn’t get to see Jack with far more items of clothes off in a much more intimate setting on a regular basis, but the fact of the matter was that he didn’t like the way Jack described them. ‘Friendly’ and ‘keen’ could mean anything from genuinely just appreciative of the show to flirty and inappropriate. It took a while for one of Davey’s visits to coincide with the most zealous fans so he could find out which it was.
