Snowflake Challenge Day 9

In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something.

No pressure or anything. I've not had time to turn around today - I'm still at work! Also, all my creative energy is going into putting together the Conflikt Songbook at the moment. Rawr! But I want to play!

*think think think*

Okay here we go... Short, sweet, totally off the top of my head and un-beta'ed.

Rating: PG13
Pairing: McShep

Rodney complained daily that people were trying to drive him insane with their idiocy, general stupidity and utter lack of brilliance. But this? This was worse than his minions, worse that Radek and him after no coffee for three days - even worse than arguing with his sister. He knew he was in trouble when he found himself contemplating bashing his head against the wall because it might hurt less.

Only John Sheppard could drive him this crazy.

"Oh, come on!" he growled. It was well past supper time already, and he needed food and coffee, but he needed John to get with the program first. The man was utterly infuriating!

"Rodney, just let it go."

He took a deep breath. Calm, calm... "John. I've been trying to come up with something for weeks. I can't read your mind, so just tell me!"

"I *already* told you, I don't want anything!" Sheppard snapped, eyes flashing.

"That most certinaly cannot be true," Rodney insisted, struggling to keep his voice steady. "You've gotta want something. Everyone wants something!"

"Well, I'm not everyone."

"That's for damn sure."

John heaved a sigh, head falling forward as he sank down to settle on the edge of the bed. Rodney frowned uneasily as he watched John set his elbows on his knees, hangs dangling between his legs, all the fight seeming to drain out of him at.


"Look, Rodney, I just- I don't- it's not a big deal, okay? I don't care."

Despite his intentions to not push, all his frustration bubbled over and poured out of his mouth. "But I do!" he snapped as he started pacing back and forth across the room, arms flailing. "Dammit, John, it's your first birthday since we started this... this *thing* that we started, and I wanted to get you something special, and you're not letting be the thoughtful bo- err, guy- whatever, you know what I mean, and you already have everything cool that you could possibly want, I mean, we live on a *spaceship city* in another *galaxy*, how the hell am I supposed to compete with that?" he turned to face John, hands held out in front of him imploringly. "And I just really wanted to give you something cool, but you're being impossible, if you could just throw me a bone-"

John slowly looked up at him and Rodney held his breath, unsure if the argument would begin anew, and not a little worried John might have decided he'd had enough and to summarily toss him out of his quarters.



John held a hand and Rodney cautiously reached out to take it. John squeezed his fingers firmly, his mouth curling into a slow smile, and Rodney smiled in return, letting himself take a breath. Then he let out a squawk as John yanked him forward to tumble on top of him on the bed, laughing as he started muttering dire imprecations about mentally challenged fly boys and possibly brain damage.

"God, Rodney, sometimes you make me crazy!"

Rodney's jaw dropped. The mere idea! If anyone drove anyone insane around here, it was Sheppard. Before he could get the words out, John's mouth captured his, hot, wild and wanting.

"You," John murmured against his lips, "all I want is you."

He groaned as John dove in again, wrapping himself around Rodney. His hands slid under Rodney's his shirt, leaving quicksilver trails in their wake, tongue tangling with his, driving him a whole different kind of crazy. It was, Rodney decided as he slid his fingers into John's hair, the kind of crazy that he was more than happy to live with.

Awwwww, boys in love. \o/

Loved it. :-)
Jan. 14th, 2012 04:09 am (UTC)
You do realize that, forever and always, I will blame you? Every time the question of how I came to love these boys comes up, the answer is always the same -

It's all sp23's fault!

I've never been so happy to blame someone. :)

Sweet! John is so stubborn, eh? :)

And I can imagine the end of this: they're twined together in the afterglow, Rodney pulls John close and says, "no, seriously. What do you want?" ::g::
Jan. 14th, 2012 04:11 am (UTC)

That is totally what happens! And then John groans and kisses the hell out of him and IT STARTS ALL OVER AGAIN!

And thus it was. And it was good.
Jan. 11th, 2012 03:14 am (UTC)
Now that's a way to deal with the crazy. LOL
Jan. 14th, 2012 04:41 am (UTC)
HA! The best way, if you ask me!
Jan. 11th, 2012 04:53 am (UTC)
I'm thinking they're both nuts!
Jan. 14th, 2012 04:42 am (UTC)
I'm am thinking that you're right!
Jan. 11th, 2012 05:13 am (UTC)
Very nice!

Oh, *boys* I love them both, and their ways of driving each other mad :D
Jan. 14th, 2012 04:43 am (UTC)

They do have a particular talent for getting on each other's nerves, don't they?
Jan. 11th, 2012 07:16 am (UTC)
Perfect...just perfect!
