Fic: Old School

Title: Old School
Characters: Havoc/Sciezka
Word Count: 169
Rating: PG-13 for let's get it onnn
Summary: Don't knock the classics.
Notes: For havocmangawip's prompt "Havoc and Sciezka, winter fun."



A sheepskin rug, a roaring fire, wine in an ice bucket and a low, crooning voice piping out of the gramophone. If you'd asked Sciezka about this combination in general, she would have wrinkled her nose and called them a hackneyed, done-to-death bunch of tropes from poor romance novels. Right now, though, she thought she might soften "hackneyed" to "old school". Or maybe even "classic"? After all, a little cheese never hurt anyone, did it? And the effort Jean had gone to, with the girly music and girly drinks and the valiant attempt to create an atmosphere of girly romance … Well, it was adorable.

As she lay curled in Jean's arms, listening to the crackling fire and his strong heartbeats, and felt his hand wandering slowly up her inner thigh, Sciezka thought to herself that this evening was shaping up to be worth putting up with the previous couple of weeks of constant sports radio and game-related tension. "Your team should win more often," she murmured. "Keep this up, and you might turn me into a sports fan."

WE NEED TO JUST HIT THIS FOR SONGS!!!!

All I could think of was, "I've Got Your Love to Keep Me Warm". I'm guessing that's what Jean was thinking of too.

THANKFULLY he knows how to suck up to Sciezka. Well, he tries... and she clearly liked it!

I KNOW I DID!!!! :) THANK YOU!!!!

I like it best when Dean Martin sings it. :)

The FMA equivalent of FA Cup/Superbowl/Test Match must be a trying time to be Jean's girlfriend.

Or Breda's, I can imagine them being sports buddies.

Oh yeah, there'd be lots of tandem yelling at the radio there.

And betting! I'm sure there would be betting.

Or stupid drinking games involving shots for fumbles or blitzes.

Oh gosh... all of that. AND poor Sciezka would get to deal with CRANKY!Jean the next morning. (AND it would be all his fault!)

Heehee, perfect! Jean with a hangover would not be very fun.

This is what was imagining. And living room strewn with beer cans and pizza delivery boxes. Which sit there, waiting for the magical tidying fairy to come along and whisk them away.

Where the hell is that fairy, anyway?

Breda is sort of surprised when it's morning and she hasn't tidied it all away!

Yeah, I want a visit from the tidying fairy!

Haha, I think Rebecca would love the cheese too. Hell, I'd take this with Jean any time. XD But you knew that.

Rebecca would totally go for the cheese. I don't think she'd even question it as much as Sciezka. Becky is not much of an overanalyzer.

I know you would like to spend some time on a sheepskin rug with Jean. *pats you*

Sciezka has had to throw out MOST of what she learned theoretically about feminism...

Jean is old school. That's just how he is. He's not trying to "patronize" her or "own" her or any of those things. Maybe... but mostly he just loves and respects the hell out of her and LIKES to stay on the right side of "in her pants". ;) If he could get down on his knees, he would.

Yes, that's what's sweet about him. He works with a lot of badass girl soldiers and is totally cool with that, but he is an old-fashioned boy at heart.
