A Few Minutes More

Title: A Few Minutes More
Author: lilyfarfalla
Prompt: Word
Words: 269
Pairings: Rodney/John
Warnings: None
Summary: It was quiet, finally, when John found Rodney sitting out on the pier.
Author’s Note: I was going to go for the whole “I give you my word” … but instead this happened.


It was quiet, finally, when John found Rodney sitting out on the pier.

Rodney was staring out across the Lantean ocean, but when John paused, not sure if Rodney wanted to see anyone, Rodney waved an arm over his head.

A smile tugged at John’s lips, and he sprawled down next to Rodney.

John idly wished for a beer, but the cool breeze off the water and Rodney’s warm presence beside him were calming enough.

It had been a pretty typical day on Atlantis. A mission that went from a display of fireworks to an up close and personal experience with another use for the Pegasus version of gun powder that the inhabitants of P83-MDX had discovered. For John, an afternoon of paperwork, meetings, and reaming out a few of the new recruits. For Rodney, judging by the slight singeing around the collar of his shirt and the bandages on a few fingers, John guessed it had been a battle with the continually faulty wiring on sublevel 4…and probably reaming out a few of the science team.

Rodney let out a huge yawn beside him, and John couldn’t resist sticking a finger into his open mouth.

John’s laughter drowned out Rodney’s muffled complaints, at least until John leaned over, and, removing his fingers first, kissed Rodney soundly on the mouth.

Rodney continued to complain into the kiss for a few seconds, until he sighed and dropped his forehead against John’s. After a moment, they both sat up. Leaning close together now, hands entwined, they watched the waves move across the water and were quiet for a few minutes more.

Ooh, a glimpse into a rare quiet moment between John and Rodney... rare especially with Rodney around. ♥ Lovely and touchingly spare.

Harder to write something where Rodney says nothing than I thought it would be! Thanks so much for the lovely comment!

Haha, if John hadn't kissed him quickly, Rodney very well might have! Thanks so much!

So lovely, as they try to just enjoys some quiet time after a busy mission. And, the "finger in the yawn" was so cute, as that happens to me all the time. 'giggles' Loved it! :)

This is beautiful - you paint the picture of the boys so descriptively you can't help but see it clearly.

I also have to say - on 5/14 (two days after you posted this), I found an abandoned comment-fic prompt, "SGA, Lorne/Parrish, Sunsets on the West pier" that I loved, so I wrote it. And though I'd not read your story until today, my story is eerily close to yours in setting and actions. I guess I was channeling you in some way. But if you want, I can delete mine - I just don't want you to think I stole your idea!!!! The fic I wrote is here: http://comment-fic.livejournal.com/339677.html?thread=60324573#t60324573

Thank you so much, this is just a lovely comment! And see my comment on your ficlet, which was WONDERFUL and totally not something that should be deleted. Like I said, SGA + pier = at least 15% of fic out there.

Oh, this is lovely. I like how comfy they are with one another, and the level of teasing they've reached, and that they find solace just being in each other's company. *happy sigh*
