Numb3rs Fic: Cherry Red and Sweet Like Candy  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #395 - Cherry

Title: Cherry Red and Sweet Like Candy
Pairing/Characters: Don/Robin
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: Series
Summary: Don would never cheat on Robin
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

Robin believes Don will never stray; Don knows it. Those days are long past him now. He's fallen in and out of love, fallen into so many beds along the way, and now he knows where he belongs.

He never forgets the woman who awaits him at home: lips, cherry red and sweet like candy; hair like mahogany that flows like water through his fingers; porcelain perfect skin that feigns fragility yet is just as strong as Robin is at the core.

He's got the perfect woman at home. He just needs to keep trying to be her perfect man.

Fic inspired by and title and quote taken from Crash Into Me by Dave Matthews Band.

ETA: Amusingly I forgot to check and I already had a fic called Sweet Like Candy so I changed this to Cherry Red and Sweet Like Candy. This is also funny, because I've written a piece called Cherry Red in the past as well. Wow, I've apparently self-plagiarized twice in one title. /marvels/

Er, you have so many stories now I'd be surprised if it wasn't hard to find titles!

I love this image of a satisfied Don. He was so restless through much of the series, so it feels like you've given us a kind of closure, showing him this way - settled, but not repressed. Happy.

OT: n3crossovers comm
Sorry to post OT; feel free to delete.

I've been trying to reach you to offer to take over modding n3crossovers. I've emailed the gmail account in your profile, and pm'd n3xmod. It was the first Numb3rs fic comm I joined, and I'd be delighted to update the links.

If you've gotten my messages, and you don't want to turn it over to me, let me know, and I'll stop bugging you.

I never liked them in canon but I do like how you write them.
