Numb3rs Fic: Negotiating Sunday  
Posted to numb3rs_het

Title: Negotiating Sunday
Pairing/Characters: Don/Megan
Rating: PG13
Spoilers: Judgment Call, Rampage
Summary: Don wants to spend Sunday in bed but Megan has other plans
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

"You getting up any time soon?"

Don yawned, settling back on the pillows. "Hadn't planned on moving much, it being Sunday and all." He made a show of making himself comfortable before letting out a fake contented sigh. "It's my day off. I deserve to relax."

Megan glared at him. "Yeah, well it's someone else's day off from the Bureau too: mine! And I have to go teach a Krav Maga class in twenty minutes."

"That's what you get for moonlighting. You and your side job," Don teased.

"My side job means I can kick your ass in more ways than you can count," Megan taunted back.

"I've got a brother who's a math genius," Don drawled. "I think I can count pretty high."

"Exactly." Megan leaned down and interrupted Don's next volley with a kiss. The kiss distracted both of them, their arms slipping around each other until Don pulled Megan back into bed with him.

"Doesn't this seem better than class? Play hooky. Come on. You know you want to," Don urged.

Megan bit her lip and shook her head. "Nope. But I tell you what, if you drive me to Krav Maga I'll make dinner and serve it to you in bed later."

Don perked up. "Dinner? Do I get to pick what you make?"

Megan eyed him. "Within reason."

Don pretended to think about it. "All right. I suppose if you feed me I can drive you. How long is your car in the shop for again?"

"Two more days." Megan slipped out of Don's arms and threw him his pants. "But the offer for dinner is tonight only. And only if we don't get called in to work."

"Wait! You didn't put that caveat on it before!" Don complained.

Megan grabbed her workout bag and keys. "Oh please. If we get called in to work you won't be around to eat it!"

"Good point." Don put on his pants and pulled his t-shirt over his head. As he rummaged in his closet for a pair of shoes he paused. "Speaking of caveats, you better not tell me that you're feeding me in bed, but you're not planning on ravishing me after."

"Okay, I won't tell you," Megan snarked, tossing him a pair of socks from his drawer. "Technically the plan was that the meal would be so good you'd ravish me instead."

Don let out a hearty laugh. "Works for me!" After he finished getting dressed he came up behind her, wrapped his arms around her slender waist and buried his face in her long hair - pressing a kiss into it. "I think we successfully negotiated that standoff," he murmured. "What's next?"

"You laid out on the floor staring up at the ceiling if you don't drive me to my class?" Megan said mock sweetly, handing him his car keys.

"Have I ever said how much I love that you kick ass?" Don remarked, heading for the door.

"Not often enough," Megan said, pushing him impatiently out the door. "But you can tell me on the way, now go!"

This little ditty was written for nicelyobsessed's birthday. She had posted about her interest in the rare Don/Megan pairing and since I've only written it once I figured I could give it another shot from a more shippy angle.

I confess I cheated and made it an established relationship, but I just kind of wanted there to be banter - the kind you'd hope for if those two were involved romantically/sexually outside of the office.

ETA: I forgot to mention that this fic holds the distinction of being my 400th Numb3rs fic. I've written more since then, but it's kind of nice to pass that little milestone.

Not my best written fic, but it came from a good place so forgive me, Cookie. :-) Bon anniversaire!

Hey, I liked it! It was sweet, and I loved their negotiation about dinner and who would ravish who. :D
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on July 18th, 2008 09:55 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Ravishing and ravenous together would be fun to write. :-)

Oh yeah, a definite return to form! Nicely done. I'm a Don!hor (in case you hadn't noticed ;-)) so happy to read him paired with most people and I think Don/Megan works well as sweet and snarky, just like here.

And I prefer ER to first time fic, so this one really worked for me.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on July 18th, 2008 09:56 pm (UTC)
Thanks! ER was just *so* much easier. I can't get a handle on how Don and Megan would hook up at first since RM's had NO chemistry with Diane on the show IMHO. Diane had chemistry with just about everyone else, but if you shut yourself off... /sigh/

Anyway, banter is awesome so I figured how could I go wrong? What's that phrase, spare the snark...? LOL

Awwwww, they're just too cute together....
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on July 18th, 2008 09:57 pm (UTC)

Man, I always like that icon when you use it. I never thought about competence being a kink really until I saw that even though it had been on eliade's list...
