Packed Away (G)

Title: Packed Away

Author: goddess47

Rating: G

Warnings/Spoilers: Future!Fic; Character Death ::sniff::

Pairing: McKay/Sheppard

Summary: For the mcfleece Challenge -- if I write more it will be longer than the ficlet...

Note: Also for Nathalie's birthday -- thank you for being a good friend!





"... you were in this fleece telling me to picture where we were ..."

Rodney remembered the first time he saw John..... in the chair in Antarctica.... Rodney remembered that fleece... it was warm but he remembered the chill that ran up his spine as John -- Major, then! -- made the chair do things they never thought it could...

He had packed that fleece away when they went to Atlantis ... when they finally moved to Atlantis permanently it showed up in the myriad of mystery-boxes delivered by the SGC.....

"... even then all I saw were blue eyes ..."

It was a bit crushed and musty but the look in John's eyes when he held it up..... Now that they didn't need to wear uniforms unless they wanted, Rodney wore the fleece whenever he had a chance.

"... the orange made your shoulders look even broader ..."

When Rodney had a similar fleece -- in black, of course -- made up for John, John's delight was all the thanks he needed. John put it on and good thing they were alone since Rodney couldn't keep his hands off it -- or off John. It wasn't long before the fleece joined the rest of their clothes on the floor....

"... you never did stop talking ..."

Over the years, the fleece came out on a semi-regular basis. They'd laugh when they both wore them at the same time without planning. On more than one occasion when that happened, they were very late to whatever they happened to be going....

"... then I figured out how to get you to put that mouth to better use ..."

When he helped their granddaughter -- John's favorite although he never would admit to it -- pack up John's things, Rodney couldn't part with the fleece... he put it next to his.... that he never wore again....

So sweet and yet so sad too.
Thanks!
Awww, so sad! *sniff*
I love that Rodney got John a fleece of his own!

Also, Rodney's shoulders do things to me...
*hands you tissue* And Rodney's shoulders.... mmmmmm..... ;-)
Oh, heartbreakingly lovely... cep xxx
Thank you -- glad you liked it!
Oh, there is just something about them being together for years and years that just gets me every time. I suppose it's knowing how much they love each other. Very nicely done. ::sniff::
*passes around box of tissues*

Together for years and years is always the way I see them..... nothing else is fair after all they've been through and what it took to finally get them together.....

Thanks!
So glad that it's not all sad.... long and happy lives are to be celebrated! Thanks!
Oh that was sad in a lovely way. Great job. I loved that they had a wonderful long life together.
Glad you liked it! Long and happy is how I see their lives.....
beautiful and touching. great fic.
Aww... thanks!
I know they had a long and wonderful life together, but still ... WAAAAAH.

::sniffles::
Please pass the box of tissues, if there are any left.

Pouty, but appreciative hugs,
H.
::finds you another box of tissues::

Glad you liked it and hugs back....
awww *sniff* thats was so sweet and lovely and made me smile the whole way through and then suddenly i was tearing up. i love stories where they have a long happy life together and wonderful memories but rodney without john is sad. oh but i do love the way you told the story, the snippets of john talking and the cute little bits in between. the whole thing was wonderful but heart wrenching.
Rodney without John *is* sad..... so glad you liked it!
Thank you for that little tweak that made the story so sweet - even though it made me sniffle again!

Thank you for the lovely birthday pressie!

You're welcome.... that tweak made it so much nicer! Thanks!
I like the whole John not being able to keep his hands off Rodney when he's wearing the fleece. Of course he would have an orange fleece fetish! We do, right? XD
