"Sorry to drag you guys out on a Sunday..."

Nikki stifled a yawn behind her hand as Don came closer and kept talking, this time quiet enough only she heard.

"Bad luck pulling a case on Sunday after closing down Gonzalez at 2AM last night. Apparently Liz was the one who kept you up late?" he said, clearly fishing. "Should I have come rescue you so she didn't talk your ear off?"

Nikki's thoughts drifted back to the night before.

Warm almond eyes under long lashes, full lips slightly parted. Latte soft skin meeting cup o' joe with a kiss of cream.

"I can take care of myself," Nikki said, meeting his eyes defiantly.

"So..." Don said, eyeing Liz with the gaze of an inquisitive investigator. "You and Nikki?"

Liz gazed out the window for a moment, remembering.

A wild mare tamed by gentle fingers, heat that sparked and bloomed deep inside, long limbs interlaced in sweaty sheets. Black curls sliding through her fingers, tequila tongue lime licking her mouth.

Liz gave Don her best mysterious smile. Her love life was none of his business anymore.

"Nikki and I?" she said, sleepy eyes half open. "We make a good team."

Confession
Yes, the title is in reference to David and Colby's distress word of Mexico. ;-)

It seemed a good way to show that neither of these women wanted or needed rescuing - especially from Don. /grins/

I know I wasn't the first to write Liz/Nikki, but come on! You knew I had to! Especially with my skin color kink. (I liked the refined latte for the more feminine Liz and the coarser cup o' joe with a kiss of cream for street girl Nikki even if they didn't exactly match their coloring that well.)

So? Who's up next to write these two? /looks over at sororcula/ Hmm?

Very special thanks to beta melissima for her assistance with this fic.

Thanks,

Emma DeMarais

Re: Confession
Yay, you wrote them too! And some lovely imagery in this. I also like that Don can't get either of them to spill. A lady never tells, Donnie and as a gentleman, you should know that! *g*

And because I am only human, I am not so secretly glad I was able to write them first

Re: Confession
Hee! Revel in your not so secret gladness! We are growing in numbers us L/Ners!

I'm looking forward to more of us writing them. Besides, Leda's femslash comm could use some more fun fic.

As soon as I saw those two walk into the strip club I just knew the fem slash was going to flow. :-) thank you.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on November 8th, 2008 05:03 am (UTC)
Hell yeah! I think we all thought that! Hee!

Can't wait to see more of those two in fic and on screen. You know Liz's transfer has to fail and she has to stay. ;-)

Beautiful. I like your color kink. You have drawn me into pairings I never imagined including two women.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on November 8th, 2008 05:05 am (UTC)
Thanks! I really have a skin kink at heart, it's just the variety of colors of skin is so nice! Very pretty.

People don't think of femslash that much, but really - women appreciate other women's beauty so why not appreciate these two together?
perhaps some frottage is in order: [girls] Aya thoughtfulsororcula on November 3rd, 2008 11:03 pm (UTC)
Hee! This is awesome.

I will totally write them, sometime, but admiralandrea stole my idea with her drabble, so I need to come up with something new and clever. Haha.

(...where by "stole my idea" I mean that GMTA and we magically managed to write the exact same thing independently.)

PUBLISH THAT FIC.

I will send Dean's hell hounds after you if you don't cough up the Liz/Nikki.

/glares with black eyes/

(Did that work? If not I'll try brownies next.) ;-)

I would be happy to publish it if it were A) finished, and B) presentable. Usually I'm good at grammar and whatnot, but writing this fic in the past tense threw me and I think I messed up some of the tenses. *facepalm*

It's all very SELF-INDULGENT. And it has no ending. Or... middle, even, really.

...but now you have me thinking about what I DO want it to have. *ponders*
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on November 8th, 2008 07:07 am (UTC)
Well you do have a ready and willing drabble beta available at all times. /hint hint/

So go to!

P.S. FIC is self-indulgent, but who cares? It's giving us what we want so we WANT IT!

Buuuut it's not a drabble! It's going to be a LONG, drawn-out story where they take forever to actually hook up!

(Maybe.)

Lovely imagery of both women.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on November 8th, 2008 05:10 am (UTC)
Thank you! Nice icon!
melissima: Don fingermelissima on November 3rd, 2008 11:41 pm (UTC)
Oh Don. :sigh.: You're such a guy sometimes.

Can we keep them joined at the hip? Please?

I really enjoyed this. Your imagery is gorgeous, and your characterizations are rock-solid (as always.)

It also reminds me in an abstract way of Snake Handler, with Don all intrigued at the idea of two of his colleagues together. :D

Your version is hotter, though.

Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on November 8th, 2008 05:14 am (UTC)
Ha! Yours is too much fun. I should do more banter flirting with women. I just need someone fun to pair Penelope with. :-)

Joined at the hip... Hmm... I smell a bunny...

AWESOME!!!

And my favorite line was, "Her love life was none of his business anymore." That rocks, Emma!

Brilliant, as usual!!
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on November 8th, 2008 05:14 am (UTC)
Thanks! I didn't think I'd enjoy Liz sticking around, but I've found so far it's kind of fun!

You go, girls. *cheers, applauding*
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on November 8th, 2008 05:15 am (UTC)
Hee! /cheers with you/

About time we had a really good female pairing on this show!
