five minute fanfic theatre  
comment!fic for miera_c exceeded the character limit, as per usual. I am at work and have five-minute sanity breaks sometimes, so feel free to challenge or write X-minute ficlets yourself to amuse ME, because it is all about ME the masses. W00t.

It was 3 a.m., and that was probably why she said it.

"Shut up."

John paused mid-rant, surprised. That wasn't normally in the Doctor Weir Handbook of Management. "What did you say?"

"Just... shut up! You're arguing this point for no reason."

Actually, that might be true. He had cared about their first point of contention -- trading with the planet-of-the-week with insufficient security -- but now they were in a heated argument about desalination-tank crew schedules or something equally... really really stupid.

He was pretty sure she didn't care about that, either. "So are you."

"Fine. Then-"

"You shut up."

A smirk was threatening at the corner of Elizabeth's mouth. "I said it first."

"I thought it first."

She rolled her eyes and huffed, but she was officially grinning. "You're impossible."

It was probably kinda sick that one of his favorite expressions on her was exasperation. "So're you."

She weighed that for a moment. "Takes one to know one, I guess."

"That's why we get along so well."

There it was again, exasperation. Their version of 'getting along' lately had involved lots of bullet-pointed memos on her part with increasing amounts of bold type, and lots of bursting into her office at 3 am on his part to talk about trade laws and crew schedule rotations.

"Go to bed, Colonel. You're not making sense anymore." She waved him off and turned back to her computer.

"You first."

"I said it first," she muttered.

True. "Do you want me to leave your office, or don't you?"

Her eyes narrowed. "I've got sixteen more reports to revise. You're welcome to stay."

John planted one hip on the corner of her desk. "I give you ten minutes. I can start whistling."


He hadn't realized how long it had been since she'd said his given name like that, like he was a thorn in her side as a person and not as her second-in-command. Three weeks, at least, since they'd spent any nonessential time together.

"Elizabeth, when was the last time you slept?"

She paused.

He didn't let her come up with an answer. "Unacceptable. If you can't remember-"

"When's the last time you slept?" She didn't even look up as she asked. "I thought so."

"Another reason why you should give in now. I'm not leaving this office until you do." He'd been thinking, lately, that he hardly got to see her. He hadn't really considered a sit-in strike as a solution, but if it worked, who was going to criticize?

"My couch is your couch."

He started whistling.

"Will you please-"

"Hey, rules are rules."

She stood it for about a minute, then raised her head to shoot him a tired glare. "You fight dirty."

"Yes. I do."

"You know there's nothing to prevent me from coming back here after you leave."

"Ah, but that would be childish."

She sighed dramatically and strode past him. She didn't acknowledge that he was following her until he stepped on her heel.

"Are you seriously escorting me back to my quarters?"

"I don't trust you."

She glared. "John, I am perfectly capable of putting myself to bed. And you're starting to annoy me."

That wasn't much of a statement, really, since he'd been annoying her, on and off, for years. "Elizabeth?"


He smiled winningly. "Shut up."

You know, if he's really concerned that she'll try to sneak back to her office, he could just stick around and make sure she stays...

I'm just saying. ;D

Very cute! Friendshippiness rocks! :)

I think that would be a very different fanfic. A few years down the road, maybe?


He needs to move. Really, he does, because he's faceplanted into one of Elizabeth's pillows and he's probably going to asphyxiate soon.

That doesn't sound so bad, though, not when he's warm and sleepy and sexed and happy...

A bony knee hits his leg, and he lifts his head, gasps in a breath, and looks at the owner of the offending appendage.

Elizabeth is on her back, looking just as sexed and sated and comfortable as he feels.


"So... are you ever planning to untie me?"

He rubs his knuckles over her ribs, hoping to distract her until he regains the energy to sit up and wrangle knots.

"When I'm ready," he teases, kissing her collarbone, but there's more laziness in his voice than deviousness or even passion.

Elizabeth wriggles. "What gave you this idea in the first place, anyway?"

Usually she's the one to suggest anything kinky -- although really, they're just starting to toy around with that. Sex is almost always a crime of opportunity with them, with their jobs and lives being what they are, and they don't usually have the chance for set-up and props.

"Thought it might be nice to try something new." Actually, he'd just been worried she would suddenly remember some meeting that she absolutely had to attend at six in the morning. That was another part of their jobs and lives.

"Getting bored already, Colonel?"

"Now that you mention it..."

She reflexively goes to swat him, but her wrists are still tied.

"Really, can you untie these? My skin's starting to burn."

He does. She rubs her wrists.

"If I go have a shower, do you promise not to run back to the control tower?"

She laughs. "Is that why you... John, I don't usually up and leave during sex. Well, not any more than you do."

The unscheduled offworld activation alarm has uncanny timing, he's noticed. He thinks Atlantis gets some sort of perverse pleasure out of it, too.

John says: "You can never be too careful."

Yeah, okay, probably not. I was thinking of actual typing time, for I am at work and keep getting interrupted by, liek, my real actual job. I tend to have a really poor sense of time while in the warp bubble of my jobosphere.

He smiled winningly. "Shut up."

And this is exactly what I assume is going on at the end of every episode/between every scene/basically just all the time. The banter is spot on, and obviously TiedUp!Elizabeth - hottttt.
