Title: Old-School Pwnage
Author: HalfshellVenus

Rating: PG
Summary: Old-fashioned fun has its advantages.
Author's Notes: Drabble Meme offering for huntress69, who wanted John/Matt.

x-x-x-x-x

It was nine o'clock when John slipped through the apartment door and went looking for Matt. The eerie glow down the hallway told him Matt was in the spare room, probably in the middle of some video game or other.

"Thought you had to work late," Matt said when John stepped up behind him.

"I got time off for good behavior."

Matt laughed. "You? You're never good."

"For awesome behavior, then."

Matt paused his game and turned to look at John thoughtfully. "Now that I believe. Have you had dinner?"

"Already ate—Chinese takeout at the precinct."

"That sounds way better than the soup-in-a-can I had." Matt looked disappointed for a second, and then brightened. "Though at least I wasn't stuck at an office."

John moved closer, leaning in casually and giving Matt that special sideways smile. "So, how in love with that game are you right now?" he asked softly.

"Not at all," Matt said hastily, hitting the power button on the monitor and standing up. "Got something better in mind?"

John pulled Matt up against him and kissed him with a trace of wickedness and promise, then took his hand and pulled him toward the bedroom.

"Kid, I'm going to show you the kind of excitement that'll make your video game look like a typing lesson..."

:D Thank you! There's something about the interaction between these two that just tickles me. It's like they started out flirting before they even realized what they were doing. :)

Yay! I'm glad you liked it!

Yep! I'd take John over a video game any day. :)

Oh, me too! John puts his own meaning on the phrase "3-D," for starters. \o/

Hee! Thank you! :D

Yay! They're just so total opposites that work so well together. And John shouldn't have any trouble keeping Matt's attention, even from the game.

Cute!

I love the way they mesh, how their differences complement instead of creating friction.

And I'll bet John is by far the "high scorer" when it comes to the game stats for Matt. ;)

This is an adorable bonbon of banter. :D
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: John/Matt Lovehalfshellvenus on May 1st, 2009 06:21 am (UTC)
Thank you! I was little worried because it was so short (though longer than a 100-word drabble), but the mood and the give-and-take seemed complete. These two are such fun together. :)

Of course old-school is the best! This was such a fun read.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: John/Matt Lovehalfshellvenus on May 1st, 2009 06:22 am (UTC)
I'm so glad you enjoyed it! And John McClane can rock the Old School like nobody's business, I guarantee. Who needs gadgets when you've got a stud like that waiting for your attention?

*big grin and chuckle* Fun-fun!

Hee! Thank you very much!

I loved it, and that punchline rocked. Thanks for writing this for me and for turning me on to this fandom. Everytime I see the movie, it just keeps getting slashier and slashier.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: John/Matt Lovehalfshellvenus on May 3rd, 2009 03:33 am (UTC)
I'm glad you liked it, and I knew you wouldn't complain if it wound up longer than a drabble. And the punchline- so John, and so true. The man is walking sexual overload, and he'd make anything else look dull in comparison.

And the fandom... the slash makes the movie even MORE fun to rewatch. So much of McClane constantly touching Matt, and the banter that starts to seem utterly like hero-worship/flirting. Whoo-hoo!

It was a very cute fic and happened to be a birthday present to me 'cause it was posted on April 30.

Oh yay, all the better! Many happy returns, and I'm thrilled that the timing gave you a little something extra on your special day. Serendipity rules! :D

GOOD YESSSSSSSSSSS!

Thank you!

John McClane IS the man-- and he's all the man you'll ever need. Though better with Matt in tow. ;)

A typing lesson ?
I've never gotten that type of offer!
Kinda sucks to be me right now!
This was very saucy!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: John/Matt Lovehalfshellvenus on October 24th, 2013 06:22 pm (UTC)
I'd take that kind of "instruction" from John McClane any day!
