kisahawklin: John and Rodney=flyboy and geek (SGA: john/rodney flyboy/geek)

I have honestly no idea what or whyfore any of these are for/from/prompted by. They're just on bits of paper in my writing folder, and as I have no interest in following them up (but do like them, even though they would take many more words to sell me on some of the characterization), I shall post them here.

Prince John and his jester –

"I am not a jester!"

Prince John and his court magician –

"Wizard, Sheppard, Wizard! It's not that hard to remember!"

Prince John and his wizard

"I'm not your anything, and besides, I have a name."

"I'm not calling you Bertheranduil the Great."

"Then call me by my nickname."

"I'm not calling you Daredevil, either."

Prince John and Wizard Rodney – "Rodney, if you interrupt me again, I'm going to punch you." – head out from Cormyr on their long trip to Waterdeep…

If there is one thing John is, it's stealthy. He's learned how to manipulate circumstances to his advantage from the master. He knows exactly how to get what he wants.

The thing is, he never even wanted Rodney. He was fine with Rodney's brief crush on him and baffled by first Katie and then Jennifer, but he never wanted Rodney for himself.

Not until Rodney's new beau, Devon, takes him aside at movie night to tell him he won't stand for John taking up all of Rodney's time now that they're together.

When John finally snaps, when he shuts Rodney up for real, it ends up being with his fist. It's not what he expected to happen, but you never can tell, can you?

Rodney'd only made a joke – a stupid, thoughtless joke – but John had already busted up a fight in the mess and the new recruits aren't quite as laissez-faire as the staff that's been here all these years, so glancing the wrong way in the showers goes back to being a game of Russian roulette.

John's reactions surprises even him, and he's regretting the punch even as he throws it, but he's unable to stop.

"Kill them all, John," Rodney says, his hands fisted tight around John's tac vest. "I know you can, I know it, I want them all to die."

John shushes Rodney, pulls him to standing, making sure he can take some of his own weight before trying to get some clothes on him.

If you can get that first one to 100 words, you should post it on the BB drabble tree! It's fun!

I see why you're dubious about the others, but I enjoy the glimpse.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure all of them except the first one were false starts for SGA_santa last year. I was in a pretty dark place at the time (luckily for my recipient who wanted that).

I didn't think the first one was close enough to a drabble, but I see it's 85 words, so maybe I will try to tweak it. I have to head back over to ABB and pick up a word or phrase. I loved your starter drabbles, btw, excellent. Poet!Ronon is my favorite. :D

The first one is adorable as it is!

The second one pushes my buttons really hard. I can see John trying to teach Devon a lesson, and Rodney misunderstanding completely. Then there's John having to ask himself if he maybe does want Rodney for himself after all.

And the fourth one is really very evocative and heart-wrenching with just those two sentences.
