Nicely done. New kinks. But I don't see Rodney waiting more than a minute to process *g*

Thank you!

Don't forget, Rodney hasn't had his morning gallon of coffee yet, plus he's getting to snuggle. :D

Beautiful story! I loved how both John and Rodney's insecurities were displayed, but they overcame said emotions for a lovely moment of bonding.

Also, Rodney is going to get rimmed, doesn't get much better than that.

They are such emotionally constipated boys, but sometimes stuff sneaks past their guard. *g*

I really liked this little story; The essential closeness between J&R is lovely, and the mental imagery is quite vivid!

I love that the straight razor is from his grandfather, but really--specially manufactured blades for razors and disposables are just too wasteful, especially when you think of the circumstances on their departure--surely at least 10 minutes of a wormhole would be taken up by sending through shaving equipment! :)

The wastefulness of that first wormhole trip makes me wince every time I watch Rising. So much wasted time and space, so much they could have/should have taken with them! Hee!

Thank you!

Holy cow! I love this. :D I love Rodney's embarrassment and shyness over happening upon John shaving; I loved his explanation (poor Rodney...*pets him*); I loved John's reaction and demonstration - very sweet and still hot. Hmmm...shaving!kink...who knew? "All the better to rim you, my dear." - indeed!

*hugs you*

Thank you!

Shaving has been a kink of mine for a while now. I know I wrote a Supernatural one, and possibly a Spander one too, a while back. It's the domesticity of it that gets me. *g*

Rodney's last line was perfect!

This was amusing, sweet and wonderful.
