Numb3rs Fic: Upgrade  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #235 – Swallow


Title: Upgrade
Pairing/Characters: David/Liz
Rating: R
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: Seasons 1-3
Summary: Liz compares David to Don
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ


He's nothing like Don.

Don was beer, pizza, take-out Chinese and adrenaline-fueled fucking filtered through the ethically gray haze of bedding her boss.

David cooks, telling her stories about his mother making the same dish for him back in the Bronx.

David brings her a glass of wine, a vintage Bordeaux that she sips and savors rather than just swallows.

David lays her out on his clean sheets, slowly mapping her naked body with patient fingers and appreciative eyes.

Her breath catches as he slides inside her the first time, stretching her, filling her.

Oh, yeah. He's nothing like Don.

Confession
If the title of this fic reminds you of an annoying commercial? Yeah, me too.

/jumps on David/Liz bandwagon/ (Thank you TNT!)

Thanks,

Emma DeMarais

*thud*

A) You wrote David/Liz. *welcomes you to the bandwagon

B) You wrote really SEXY David/Liz. I love the comparison of the two. When Don and Liz were together, I think you have the relationship nailed! And I always imagined David would be just the opposite.

*swoons and falls onto the floor in a fit of glee

THANK YOU!

Hee!

I wrote this kind of as a shoutout to you and julietm, and to sororcula too in a way.

I've been rewatching the TNT episodes and DAMN there are a lot of good David/Liz moments! (And I'm not just talking Cover Me!)

/kicks back on the bandwagon/

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Ok, after the last ep (Hydra), I must have had my goggles set to het cause i actually noticed and enjoyed the David/Liz vibe going on. But this? This makes me love David/Liz. I am very happy you joined this particular bandwagon, cause Liz is just deliciously wicked here. LOL
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on October 28th, 2009 11:43 pm (UTC)
David's sadly been fairly invisible on the show: stalwart and steady but never really getting center stage. So now that he's the man in charge when Don's not around he's finally getting to come into his own.

Liz? I adore her wicked. It's so much better to have her like that versus Don's nagging girlfriend.

The only dilemma? David/Liz vs Liz/Nikki.

Decisions, decisions... ;-)

*swoons

OMG! I LOVE IT!

*scoots over on the bandwagon and pats the place next to her

I know that my David/Liz were a little more fueled up at the time...but this is what I imagine them like once they got that out of their systems.

I'm sooooooooo excited that you wrote this!!!!!
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on October 29th, 2009 01:04 am (UTC)
Yay!

I'm super behind in my reading, but I hoped this would help make up for my tardiness in commenting. I like to support my friends' ships when I can and this one has been really growing on me thanks to you guys being such bad good influences. ;-)

/bounces along on the bandwagon beside you and Candi/

I didn't think I could get into it at first, but I've been rewatching the show in reruns and I'm finding there's a lot of good David and Liz scenes to feed the ship for those who want to see it.

I appreciate you reading it, most definitely! Thank you!
meganm57nebula on October 29th, 2009 02:49 am (UTC)
"the only solution is to go ahead and make it David/Liz/Nikki ;-)"

Another vote YES YES YES.

I would love it if they actually get together in the show. David needs someone.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on October 29th, 2009 03:03 am (UTC)
LOL

Okay, okay, okay!

/puts hands up in surrender/

Though I think it's likely going to wind up David/Liz and Ian/Nikki double dating and winding up David/Liz/Nikki/Ian in the end. (I'm already seeing David and Ian enjoying watching Liz/Nikki playing around together. Oh my!)

David needs someone, but I'm sure he'd like some bodies too! Hee!

Thanks for reading!

For 100 words there was something completely totally hot about it. I'm always amazed at how good at that you are.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on October 29th, 2009 07:32 am (UTC)
/bows/

Why, thank you!

*clings desperately to Colby/Liz*

Dammit, woman, stop making me want to break my het OTP!

And yeah, much as I love Don this is one area where David would have him beat, no issues.

And hee, love the naughty last line.

Great work!
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on October 30th, 2009 04:01 am (UTC)
But but! /points to mustangcandi and julietm/ But they started it!!!

/chuckles/

I still like Colby/Liz. No worries. But I've written Colby/Liz and I hadn't written but one David/Liz (and it wasn't very happy) so I'm just trying to cover all my friends' ships little by little to keep everyone smiling. :-)

Naughty=FTW!

P.S. Yes, I saw your posts over at N100. Give me a bit to get caught up and I'll take care of them. Sorry for the delay.
