i just realized i don’t think i’ve told this story before but one time i was waiting outside a venue for like one of those I Heart Radio concerts and Fall Out Boy was playing so I was Hyped™. I was waiting outside and everyone was turned to this mini stage because a few smaller artists were going to play, but i was turned the other way to look at my dad. So I’m talking with my dad and suddenly I look up to see some people walk onto a lil balcony on the venue and immediately I knew. It was Patrick and Pete. Shook, i pointed up and (to get my actual father’s attention) shouted “DAD!” and Patrick looked over, laughed and waved right at me. He answered to me calling him dad… I will never forget that.
Patrick turns into a dragon and locks himself in his garage because of it, telling Pete he's too dangerous to be around in his new form. Pete does as he's told (though he still slides love letters under Patrick's door so he knows he's still cared for) until he gets curious and decides to go see Patrick anyway. It turns out, Patrick is a tiny, weak, pathetic dragon and he was really hiding bc he was embarrassed that he didn't look powerful.
