Die Hard 4 Slash Fiction: "Reeling" (John/Matt, PG)  
Title: Reeling
Fandom: Die Hard 4
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: John/Matt (Slash, Ficlet)
Rating: PG
Summary: John McClane can be overwhelming, but everyone has to learn that for himself.
Author's Notes: A very late birthday ficlet for jasmasson, who always enjoys this pairing.
Also for rosie_spleen's Bleeding Cuticles Roadkill Challenge (I'm calling this one a Thursday story), and writers_choice ("Dizzy").

x-x-x-x-x

It hadn't started off well, Matt had to admit. He'd gone on the defensive when McClane came to his apartment to bring him in—behaved like an asshole, only to get half-blown-up all the way out the door and prove McClane right.

It put him in a vulnerable position, which no one liked anyway, and when his blood sugar crashed during the car ride afterward he might have gotten a little desperate. He'd said a few wild things, God knew what—it happened, okay? If he was lucky, they'd be forgotten.

But in the tunnel, surrounded by chaos while McClane held him down in an unreal island of calm, something finally clicked.

It wasn't just the danger or the relief coursing through him that got Matt flustered and sped up his heart.

It was the touch of his muscle-clad god-I-must-be-losing-it-he-smells-so-good Marvel-comics wet dream and personal rescuer instead.

Thank you thank you thank you!
This is wonderful! If I'd been on line I absolutely WOULD have picked a DH4 fic - I love them so and there's so few... especially so few perfect ones like this.

Who wouldn't react to John McClane that way? Particularly when he spent a good ten minutes feeling you upmanfully protecting you?! ;)

Yay, I'm so glad you found this! I was hoping it would suit you, too, once I figured out a story-type you'd probably like.

Oh boy, there's an icon of him in a tight, tight shirt from a scene in this movie that just mesmerizes me. He's way more brawny than I usually like, but the hormones do not care-- they stand up and salute his awesomeness every time!

If I had that right next to me (touching, leaning, radiating) with the husky sardonic voice that is all McClane, I'd be a goner just like Matt.

So glad you liked it. Yeah for birthdays! They inspire stories that would never have gotten written!
