Ficlets from first/last kiss meme

From samtyr: Trevor Linden/Markus Naslund

Secret Captains' Handshake

The whole team's wasted on the captain's booze; it always seems like you can drink more when someone else is paying for it. Somebody's underwear is draped over the top of the living room couch, but it's unclear who it belongs to, and everyone steers clear of it, leading to the formation of a miniature fallout zone.

Markus stretches out on the deck chair and stares up at the moonlit clouds. He's drunk and happy and not the least bit worried about the miscreants running loose in his house. Trevor is stretched out more (because he's taller) on the other deck chair next to him, draining the last of his beer.

"Markus, did I..." Trevor thinks there might be two moons in the sky tonight, and this distracts him briefly before he realises that he hasn't finished his question. "Did I ever show you the secret captains' handshake?"

Markus answers, no you didn't, and he doesn't quite understand why Trevor is giving him such a strange look. He answers again, and this time the words don't come out in Swedish. Trevor gives him a knowing wink and says, "Oh, we have to fix that. Come here."

It takes an eternity, but through sheer force of will, Markus sits up and moves closer to Trevor, who gently shows him the secret handshake.

Funny thing is, Markus could almost swear that the handshake's a lot like a kiss.

From offside: Arrested Development (Michael/Gob)

The Closet

Perhaps sneaking into a building to steal documents (that may or may not have existed) that supposedly (according to an overheard phone conversation between Kitty and an unknown person) exonerated their father of all wrongdoing wasn't such a good idea when said building had regular security patrols.

Unfortunately, Michael and Gob hadn't been aware of this when they (Gob) decided (blackmailed Michael by threatening to tell George Michael about the ill-advised ballet lessons he'd taken when he was 6) to embark on this particular act of espionage, and ended up hiding in a janitor's closet, waiting for a window between patrols they could use to make their escape.

Just then, the single light bulb in the closet flickered, then went out, and both Michael and Gob whirled about in a panic (chaos and entropy increased as the universe slowed down) and ended up in a position (through a rare celestial alignment of heavenly bodies) such that their lips pressed together for an instant (eternity).

Slightly shaken, they came out of the closet together.

From fullycompletely: Petr Sykora/Radek Dvorak

Champions

They'd known from the beginning that there would be an end.

But you could live a lifetime in two weeks, and that's what they did. Petr very nearly died from lack of sleep, and Radek's voice almost vanished, a casualty of their endless conversations.

They never said it out loud, but everything they did was suffixed with "for the last time ever", and it was a race to change every "we should do this" into the past tense.

At least they had kissed as champions.

From abby20: Marian Hossa/Martin Havlat

Lessons

Marian had somehow become Marty's English tutor. Bonkie was shamefully neglectful in his mentoring duties, Marian decided, and was convinced that Marty needed somebody to help him adjust to life in Ottawa.

{How do you say bathroom?} Marty asked, and Marian answered.

{How do you say friend?} Marty asked, and Marian answered again.

{How do you say love?} Marty asked, and Marian moved nearer.

{How do you say kiss?} Marty asked, and Marian answered, {like this,} leaning forward and ending English lessons for the night.

From crankygeek: Patrick Marleau/Tom Preissing

Kiss Goodbye

Lying in bed together in a cabin in Minnesota, halfway between San Jose and Ottawa - or close enough - they were trying to make the most of the time they had before Patty had to fly home the next morning. He was going to spend the rest of the summer with his family.

At the airport, Tom impulsively pulled Patty back into the passenger's seat just as he was getting out. Patty raised his eyebrows questioningly, but soon found himself assaulted by kisses. Forehead, cheeks, nose, earlobes, neck, lips--none were spared.

He grinned and said goodbye, and he was in the air when Tom found out that he'd been traded to Ottawa. Tom sat in his cabin and held his head in his hands, but of all the kisses they'd shared that morning, it was hard to remember which one had come last.

I love the bit about the underwear. Hee, fall-out zone.

The Sykora/Dvorak one HURT. Wonderfully, but still HURT HURT HURT.


Boys are very mistrustful of (other people's) underwear!

They're such cheerful, chatty, smiley boys too. Unfortunately, this is a cue in fic world to angstify them to death. :D

Urgh. I suddenly really miss that show.

Because we're brothers.

And we kinda like each other.

Oh yes. I have the DVDs naturally. Bateman kinda squicks me. I like Arnett with his OTP Krazinski (?) Office guy.

Just replying over here so I can read all of them. :)

{How do you say love?} Marty asked, and Marian moved nearer.

Ohhh, oh, my heart just grew three sizes! That was perfect, thank you.

and it was a race to change every "we should do this" into the past tense.

That line really got me. So bittersweet, but so lovely.

Tom sat in his cabin and held his head in his hands, but of all the kisses they'd shared that morning, it was hard to remember which one had come last.

::cries::

Naslund/Linden made me giggle. Mystery underwear!

And Michael/Gob!!! Dude, it is HARD to write from that show, but that was excellent. :D

. . . I've turned into the worst fb-er ever, but yeah, loved them all. :)

Re: Just replying over here so I can read all of them. :)

I'm a sap for Martian. :P

That line really got me. So bittersweet, but so lovely.
Thanks. :) I kind of wish I'd done more with my first bf before I had to leave Singapore. But we were together, and it was good, and in the grand scheme of things, that's great.

Yeah, Arrested Development is like the best comedy ever. It's kind of like, it's perfect so why mess with it?

Ahh, dude, thanks so much. Your fb is awesome. :)

Came for the Bluths, stayed for the Marian/Marty! It makes my Senators fangirl heart get all poundy. ♥

Very sweet and cute. Great drabbles. :D

Thank you so much!!! :D

Hee, collision of worlds. If you were interested in reading more Marian/Marty stuff, I have some fics on my website (scroll down to Leave Your Shoes at the Door) and there's also a Sens parody.

The underwear bit reminds me... Last night, when I got to the locker room for my game, there was one abandoned bra and brush on the bench I sat at. Before I got there, it was all boys, so it was obviously not one of my teammates' things. No one would get anywhere near that bra, so I ended up pushing it to the far end of the bench with my stick. Heh.

I loved all of these little ficlets. I think Marian/Marty was my favorite, but they were all fantastic. Poor TP and Patty. *sniff*

If there's anything boys are afraid of more than boys' underwear, it's girls' underwear!!!

Thank you! I have a soft spot for them. They're like, a stealthy OTP!

aww man, i've been such a reclusive loser i missed a fic meme from you? damn it.

Did you want to ask for one? You still can here. Alex was a little late, so I'm still

OMG TRAVIS BUCK IS THE MASTER OF GAME ENDING SLIDING CATCHES!!!

*ahem* Sorry.

... still working on Haren/Lowry for her. Let's see if the Giants can hang on so that the Pepperdine roomies can get the wins tonight. :)

Mae, love, you make me want to fill up the comment box with keyboard mashing and excitement. And implore you to write more and more and never, ever stop.

Funny thing is, Markus could almost swear that the handshake's a lot like a kiss.
OH THAT IS SO FUCKING CUTE, OH MY GOD.

I love the Michael/Gob one. I love that pairing but I don't read a lot of it because I feel that most of the writing about them is really over-the-top. But this one, oh man, it's just right.

They never said it out loud, but everything they did was suffixed with "for the last time ever", and it was a race to change every "we should do this" into the past tense.
is really lovely and sad. I love that one.

The Martian one actually made me squeak with glee. Ohhh, I love them. So much. SO. MUCH.

And what can I saw about the Patty/TP one? Lovely. Hurt-y. Sad.

I love it all, and I'm not even kidding! :D



Mae, love, you make me want to fill up the comment box with keyboard mashing and excitement.
LOL! That is entirely acceptable, and possibly encouraged!!!

I would think that over-the-top would suit that fandom, haha. Oddly enough, I'm kind of a canon whore when it comes to books/TV/movies, so I was like, okay, how would these two end up kissing?

Thank you so much, Cindy!!! You make me feel all happy and blushy! Also, where is my Martian kiss, woman? I usually don't do these things, but I wanted to read something from you, and then I felt obligated to do it too. :P

Oh goodness. You have a way of breaking my heart in just a few words, especially with the last line of the Patty/Tom one. Oh, I miss Tom. :(

He was the one guy who I ended up loving at the end of the season that I didn't at the start of it. We'll always, have Shark Byte, TP!!! *cries*

*lip quivers* Have you seen the segment he did with Sportsnet or the one he did during the playoffs where he interviews the other Sen (I totally forget who it was :P)? They break my heart. :(

I don't think so! I did see the one where he goes around Ottawa asking people if they know who he is and nobody knows, hahaha.



It's super slashy. :P

And I love the mall one. It's just so.."I'd know who you are!"

I would have married him if he hadn't gone to Ottawa (and wasn't already married)!!! *sniffle*

MIKE COMRIE DOES LIKE TO DO A LITTLE LAWNWORK!!!

*giggles* Now I'm feeling nostalgic and watching all the old Shark Byte's from two seasons ago. Oh, the love between Joe and Jimmy and Niko and Smitty..I miss that. :(

LMAO!!!

OMG, I just read 'The Closet,' my first ever Arrested Development fic!

Too, too funny! Thank you sooo much!!! :D



Hee, it's the first one I've ever written! I'm really glad you found it funny! Thanks for commenting. :D
