Summary: Too much friction can be a bad thing.
Notes: 3/100


Beneath skin still moist from the shower, muscles bunched and slid in perfect synchronicity. Forearms, fuzzed with darkly golden hair, moved energetically, briskly towelling dry the hidden head and silk-soft pelt.

A second towel, a cruel scrap of cloth, hung from solid hips, shielding from display a set of biteable cheeks. It slid and slithered but never truly slipped to show the glory, just tempted with a momentary flash of lower spine. Sweetly curved and shadowed, luring tongue and lips and fingers, that dip drew whimpers every time a random droplet trickled down.

Eventually John grew too impatient and reached out and grabbed, catching up a handful of bare hip when the towel fell free.


Rodney sighed and dragged the second towel off his head. John took one took and laughed aloud.

"Excuse me? Naked boyfriend here, not quoting Monty Python, so not appreciating being laughed at, thank you very much. Want to share the joke before I dress and go on home?"

John bit his lip and tried for serious - and failed. He couldn't quite suppress the last few chuckles.

"You're, ah, looking kinda fluffy there, Rodney. You might not want to buff yourself so hard next time."

Rodney scuttled back into the bathroom and then, as expected, John heard softly muttered curses and a running tap. When Rodney reappeared, his hair was damp and pasted to his head, and the expression on his face spoke of revenge.

"This is, of course, entirely your fault, Major Sheppard. You were ogling so hard I couldn't bring myself to stop. So you are responsible for messing up my hair, and I do believe that turnabout's fair play."

Rodney pounced.

Thank you, baby. I think DH's hair would fluff up beautifully wth enough friction so that's the image my brain provided when I looked at the challenge. *g*

I think fluffy-headed Rodney is the perfect foil to spikey-headed John. :D

Thank you!

You just know that, after all those hair comments off Rodney, John couldn't resist getting his own back. ;)

Thanks! So true! John would have been unable to resist the urge to get his own back with a hair comment. *g*

darkhavens: rodney good morning john [literati]darkhavens on November 24th, 2005 07:24 pm (UTC)

You never thought about it? But his hair looks so rufflable! I bet it's so baby fine that a good rubover with a rough towel would have it fluffing up all over. ;)

Hehe, fluffy Rodney. Love the cheeks comment and adore Rodney with messed up hair. Gosh he just can't help being snarky (this is why I love him so much!).

Great story and thanks for sharing.
darkhavens: rodney oh please! [literati]darkhavens on November 24th, 2005 07:26 pm (UTC)

And those cheeks? *chomp* :D

Not sure how I missed this, but awwwwww...precious! Rodney's right, it really was all John's fault!*roflol* So, are you going to show us how Rodney got even?*g*

darkhavens: rodney who's sleeping w john [literati]darkhavens on November 24th, 2005 07:28 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :D

And... maybe. There should be intense hairplay and snarkage, I think. *g*

Somehow I missed this story. Or I missed feeding back Or I'm simply missing my head, which is probably the correct answer. But this was very cute. And I do adore the visual of Rodney's bitable cheeks. *g*
darkhavens: rodney adorkable [literati]darkhavens on November 25th, 2005 12:34 am (UTC)
Ooh, very very cheeks in question, lovingly displayed in your icon. *bites*

Thanks, sweetie! :D
