All I want for Christmas

Another one by Rebelcat, another one of my favourites.

All I want for Christmas


Doyle heard the front door slam behind Murphy. He stretched, his spine cracking as cramped muscles protested the long hours of inactivity.

“Your turn,” he said. He could feel Bodie’s gaze on him, so he leaned back a little further in his chair, pushed his hips up, and turned what had been a stretch into something a lot less innocent.

An abrupt clearing of Bodie’s throat told Doyle that he’d hit the mark. But when he climbed casually to his feet and turned, he saw that Bodie had an odd expression on his face. Doyle had been expecting desire, or even anger, but instead Bodie looked simply... hurt.

Oh Bodie...
“You like that,” said Bodie, sounding breathless himself.
Doyle, who was liking it very much indeed, made a noise of agreement.
“Makes sense,” said Bodie. “You having been in art school and all.”

I read the story some time ago and I enjoyed it immensely. IMO there aren't enough established relationship stories!
Our Bodie can be such a foo sometimes - but you can trust them to sort things out! :-)

Our Bodie can be such a fool sometimes - but you can trust them to sort things out! You are soooo right! Sorting things out I like best about them. ;-)

Nice and funny and sweet - I read it some time ago and now remembered it. Thank you.

I'm glad you like it too. :-)

Another nice one, with Bodie all macho and upset, and Doyle insightful and resourceful but uncertain how things will develop. Both of them stubborn in their own way, but finding a compromise.

The Christmassy setting makes the ending extra nice. Thanks for the rec!

That's one of my long time favourits. Nice piece of a "Grundsatzdiskussion". Clever, funny and sexy.

Nice piece of a "Grundsatzdiskussion". And Doyle did so well dealing with it. ;-)

He has his ways :-) and Bodie is so cute in it where he can't deny Doyle's attraction and has to think again. I love Rebelcats writing.
Nice design, btw.

Thank you. I had some spare time. :-)

If you are interested, take a look at my DW journal I created these days. Unfortunately I can't adjust my LJ as much (no colours to choose from) without attending a course in html programming.
