Numb3rs Fic: Dream a Little Dream  
Posted to numb3rs_het

Title: Dream a Little Dream
Pairing/Characters: Don/Robin
Rating: R
Spoilers: Seasons 1-3
Summary: Robin waits in Don's bed for him to come home from work
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

She slipped between his sheets, their softness sliding over her shower warmed skin.

He'd be home soon and he'd find her waiting for him.

She'd have to wait, she knew, while he took a shower, but she imagined him standing under the spray: hot water sluicing down the hard planes of his abs and slicking his thighs as his hands moved soap through the masculine brush of chest hair across his pecs.

She pictured him walking towards her, towel slung low across his hips, coming to sit beside her on the bed. She'd pull him in with her, his hair still damp beneath her impatient fingers.

She'd want to rush, but he... He would take it slow, letting his mouth glide down her body as if rediscovering it anew, awakening her senses even as she'd been ready to drop off to sleep.

When his head dipped between her thighs she'd try in vain to twist her fingers in his hair as he drove all thought of work criminals danger from her mind until all she could think of was pleasure and Don, Don, Don't stop, please...

She'd pull him up then, settle his hips between her legs, the stretch a pleasant ache she'd remember at work the next day.

He would kiss her, always, before he slid inside her as if to remind her she was special, she was loved, she was the one he chose to be with.

She never had to guide him; he always just knew. How fast, how hard, how rough or how gentle. The bond between them made physical with their joining existed in every moment of every day.

He knew her.

And she knew she loved him.

His hand would caress her, possessive and attentive - smoothing over her breast, gliding down her stomach, stroking her to completion... She'd willingly deliver herself into his hand, the hand that had saved her life, the hand that would one day wear a ring that bound him to her as hers would to him.


Robin's eyes fluttered open as Don slipped into bed on the other side, pulling her to him.

"I didn't wake you, did I?" he said apologetically, burying his face in her neck - his breath warm and familiar against her skin.

"I was dreaming," Robin mused - sleepy but waking fast as her fingers combed through Don's damp hair. "But this is so much better..."

This little ficlet was written for my friend cerisereve. She was having one of those bad day/bad week/bad you name it times and I wanted to offer something to cheer her up.

No, this measly little fic is not what I offered her. LOL

I made a post on my other LJ and asked for prompts for microfic to entertain her. My F-list did a great job of prompting me, as did she, and I did a sucky job of keeping them microfic length! I finally caved to the idea they were more going to be drabbles and ficlets and just let them happen. I didn't count them, but there has to be at least a dozen there - maybe more.

This fic though was clearly longer than the rest and when I first started it it felt more like a real fic than just a quickie thing meant to be tossed off in comments like the others (there's crack in them there comments /hangs head in shame/) so I figured I'd do right by it and publish it for real.

The prompt was for het canon pairing porn and for whatever reason Don/Robin jumped to mind. Actually I think the reason was a) it's the current and most recent canon pairing b) (almost) no one wants to read Megan/Larry porn c) I'm not sure I could really get inspired to write Charlie/Amita porn anymore. /wonders if or when I ever did/

If you want to keep the random acts of kindness going, go read some of her fic and leave her a nice comment. I recommend the Don/Leah drabble entitled Eden. Very nice!

So to cerisereve, here's some good thoughts coming your way!

Re: Confession
I still love the language you used here. Shivers! The fic (micro or not) was just as good the second time around. =)

*blink* *blink* You recced me?!? Talk about random acts of kindness. Thank you, Emma. =) Once again you've managed to really brighten my day.

Re: Confession
Hopefully the fic is better the second time around. I punched it up and polished it a tiny bit.

And yes I recced you! Eden was brill! Besides, everyone wins: the readers get good fic, you get reviews and I get to brighten your day a second time! \o/

Wow. This is just so perfect and beautiful, Emma. It's not quite smut, but it's this sensual romance between the two that just seems so Robin and Don.

I love it!

Thanks! I like writing R, but it so seldom fits the story. In this case R was perfect - PG13 too tame and NC17 too graphic.

I really wish I was skilled enough to write better R, but bad me I tend to go for the easier NC17. /hangs head/

Glad you liked it!

Mm. Very nice... I like the idea of Don knowing exactly what she needs.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on July 17th, 2008 05:50 am (UTC)
We just all want Don to know what *we* want, hmm? ;-)

You couldn't say it better! Love this one too!
Now we have problem. I'm addicted, you cannot stop writing Don in love...

Do you have Don and Liz? I couldn't find... Can I make a request?

This was very good. Gentle and loving, a strong, perfect piece to describe the Don/Robin relationship. I'm not a big fan of them, but still, this was so nice I couldn't help feeling for a moment that I like them together. :)

Someone else said that as well. It's such a nice compliment to have someone say basically 'I'm not much for x/y pairing, but I like *your* x/y fic'.

So thank you!

Thank you! I live to hear the word gorgeous used to describe my writing - it's the one adjective other writers tend to get that I don't...

Yet another fic I bookmarked and am now rather belatedly commenting on... This one was just super sweet, and exactly the kind of thing I could picture Don and Robin actually doing :D
