"Damn it!" Colby cursed under his breath, but not enough for Ian not to stir.

"What's wrong?" Ian murmured, voice thick with sleep at the pre-dawn hour.

"Nothing," Colby grumbled. "I just tripped over your frickin' wheelchair in the dark - again."

"I always park it in the same place," Ian told him, pulling the covers down for him.

Colby got back into bed, nursing his stubbed toe. "I know, I know. But I keep forgetting it's there."

"Go back to sleep," Ian told him, tugging Colby over to curl against him. "I'll fix it tomorrow."

"How?" Colby asked, annoyed. "Are you going to switch to a glow in the dark wheelchair or something?"

"Now that's an idea," Ian murmured, good-humor evident in his tone. "For now, sleep."


Colby walked through the apartment door after work only to burst out laughing at the sight that met him.

Ian had taken glow in the dark duct tape to the edges of his wheelchair so its boundaries would be visible even in their normally pitch black bedroom.

"That work for you?" Ian asked, eyebrow raised, waiting for his reaction.

"Add a few racing stripes," Colby replied, grinning. "And you're good to go."

Heeeeeeeeeeeee Such a happy little scene. <3 I want to see Ian with his upper body all bulked up, still scaring the stuffing out of his students at Quantico.

Oh, sneaky! I let you choose between those two bunnies and AFTER I write the one you chose you ask for the other one in public. /eyes you/

You know, now I'm trying to imagine your chair with racing stripes on it. /snickers/

/ded of lol/ /and cute, but mostly lol/

OMG, Emma. This is priceless! I love Ian's sense of humour about his wheelchair. Glow-in-the-dark duct tape! Racing stripes! /claps with glee/ This made my day, seriously.

Also, I wanna know more about this verse! How did Ian wind up in a wheelchair? How did he cope? Were he and Colby together when the injury happen or did they get together after? How did /Colby/ cope?

And I totes agree with Mel. Ian still being Mr. Scary Sniper Instructor /so/ needs to be written. /makes puppy dog eyes and offers your muse apple cider and fine chocolate/ Pretty please with whipped cream and a Fedcake on top? :D

They have to be red stripes because everyone knows red goes faster and I'd love to hear all the back story around this.
