The knock at the door wasn't unexpected - just the person on the other side.

Megan opened her apartment door to find an agitated Amita fidgeting on her front step, anxiety clear in the tense lines of the young woman's body.

"I heard," she said softly

Megan merely nodded and stepped away from the door, leaving it open for Amita to enter.

"All of it?" she asked over her shoulder, her tone brusque, almost callous.

"You quitting your job at the FBI, you splitting with Larry..." Amita stepped inside and closed the door quietly behind her. "Was there more?"

Megan stalked across the living room to her bar area, staring at the opened bottle and mostly empty glass there in silence for a moment before ignoring it and turning to face Amita.

"There's always more."

Amita approached her tentatively. "I admit I don't really know what you're going through..." She reached out and her fingertips grazed the skin of Megan's arm so lightly an electric charge was the only sensation left in her wake. "But I hoped I might be able to be there for you... Help... Whatever you need..."

The touch, the scent of her, those doe-like eyes searching hers - so open and trusting... Megan was swept up and almost as surprised as Amita when she shoved her against the wall and kissed her hard, using her strength and skill to pin her while she plundered her mouth.

"What if that's what I need?" Megan shouted, pulling herself away, panting with anger, exasperation and arousal just a couple of feet away as she stared at Amita running her fingers over her kiss-bruised lips.

Amita's hand finally reached towards her, a strength - almost confrontational - shining in her eyes where Megan expected only shock and betrayal.

"Then let me help..."

In September of 2007 I published a Megan/Larry ficlet called Unexpected. In it, Megan is discovering unexpected feelings for Larry. She's thrown though, because she's used to things starting with a spark and with Larry there's no spark.

So here's Megan, tense and alone, having broken things off with Larry and suddenly there *is* a spark.

Just with someone totally unexpected.

Thus the title.

The fic is a little trite, but kind of on purpose. This could be a generic fic with Don and well, any woman pretty much. I just liked taking what is normally a very traditional het fic (and even sometimes an M/M slash fic) and turning it on its ear by making it F/F.

Interestingly, Unexpected was for leda_speaks' comm numb3rswom3n and I chose to write this week's N100 prompt as Megan/Amita because of her and sororcula who are wonderfully tireless supporters of the tiny group of femmeslash authors in the fandom.

So here's another ladies! I shall endeavor to write more in the future...

In other news, melissima? Scarily even *nicer* in person. :-) (And how is *that* possible? /mind boggles/)

Re: Confession
/blows kisses too/ And you are even more amazing in person. (Srsly I am so freakin' lucky.) As long as you don't mind my directionally-challenged, ditzy side, this little adventure is going to rock! :)

BTW, if you are going to write fierce, pushy Megan, I'm afraid I must demand the Pr0n. Like, um, now.

K thx bye! /hugs/

Oh MY. Very nice! And I like your point about taking something "generic"/traditional and turning it around. Fun times, yo. :-)

Please do write more, so we can rest a moment in our endless crusade. *wipes brow*

/makes you and Leda a tall cool pitcher of lemonade for your labors/

The three of us need to decide on a final group of three N3 women for my promised F/F/F fic. We threw out a ton of great ideas, but I don't think we ever narrowed it down to a winner.

FWIW, I'm digging on Alex more now, but I'm open.

Okay, no Millie, so I guess I'm not *that* open. /snickers/

Man, now I totally want Millie/Amita. That would be fantastic.

And I don't remember who Alex is! She's the one you guys always mention and I can never remember. Tell me what episode she was in so I can go rewatch it, plz.

Professor Alex Trowbridge - hot blonde professor in Thirteen who was an expert in numerology

Can't find a good shot, but she's the blonde in this pic.

Oh, gorgeous! Yeah, I've been kind of wanting to watch that episode again, anyway. Perfect! Thanks.

I thought I left a comment on this one
I totally loved it
Loved how Megan took control and shoved amita to the wall
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on August 3rd, 2008 04:48 am (UTC)
Thanks. I'd kind of forgotten that part by now, oddly enough.
Miamia_dcwut_09 on August 3rd, 2008 04:55 am (UTC)

I am shallow, and find myself saying "ooh, what a mental image!" There's so much more here, but right now I'm just imagining Megan, Amita, and that lucky lucky wall.

Hee! Hey, did you ever see wallsmut? I was hoping they'd renew the challenge because HELLO wall smut is hot!
