Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ


Colby hadn't told anyone about the awards ceremony, not even Ian.

Don knew; he'd put Colby up for the award. Still, Colby had asked him not to let anyone else know. Don argued, but relented after a while, saying none of them could manage black tie anyway – with a wink of course.

Two days before, Colby had picked up his rental tux and was in the midst of trying to come up with explanations to tell Ian as to why he had a tux and plans for Saturday night that he hasn't told him about.

He walked into the apartment to find a small gift box tied with a bow on the table with his name on a card next to it. The card read "Did you think I wouldn't find out? Picking up my tux now. - I." Inside the jewelry box were a pair of tasteful onyx and diamond cufflinks that were miles better than the cheap ones included with his rental.

Once he was dressed he looked at himself in the bathroom's full length mirror. With his hair freshly washed and combed plus the extra spark of the diamonds he looked pretty damn good if he had to say so himself.

"Now that's what I like to see. You clean up well, soldier."

Colby turned to have the breath almost knocked out of him. Ian. In a tux. Ian in a tux. While his lover was already a very attractive man, one whom every eye would be on when they arrived, he looked exceptional in the black tuxedo.

"Ian..." he murmured in appreciation.

"Congratulations," Ian told him, taking him by the lapels. "How does it feel?"

Colby slid his arms around Ian's waist and settled in close.

"Feels like I've already won."

Confession
This is one of three slashchat chatfic that I wrote on the fly as birthday presents during a chat back in August. The recipients liked their gifts to so much they asked me to publish them for the rest of the fandom to enjoy. They're unedited for the most part, changed only slightly for word count or for clarity.

Thank you,

Emma DeMarais

Definitely a nice mental image!

Whew. That IS a lovely image. Of course, I was thinking it was a lovely image before Ian even showed up. I do love me some Colby in a tux. RAWR. I'm glad you were convinced to share. This was a great read.
