atlantis jason/pythagoras

Fanfic: Soft

So, I decided it was about time I attempted a Hercules pov fic, or even actually wrote a fic that featured Hercules at all, lol! This was the result. Also fills another trope bingo square, because I'm trying to get as many as possible before the amnesty period runs out at the end of the month.

Title: Soft
Author: Athene
Fandom: Atlantis
Pairing/characters: Hercules, Pythagoras/Jason (unrequited), (Jason/Ariadne (implied), Hercules/Medusa (implied))
Rating: 12
Warnings: Occasional mild language
Spoilers: Everything up to and including 1.11 Hunger Pangs (several specific spoilers for that episode)
Disclaimer: Not mine. BBC and Urban Myth Films own them.
Word count: approx 1413
Summary: Hercules wasn’t as oblivious as most people thought he was.
AN: Thanks to fififolle for the beta.
AN2: Fills the trope bingo square ‘free square – unrequited love/pining’. The pairing is Pythagoras/Jason, but the fic is actually all Hercules’ train of thought about his friends.

Atlantis art - Hercules and Pythagoras wallpapers

While Jason may have cornered the market in action heroics and shirtlesness, one of the best things about the first series of Atlantis has been the Hercules/Pythagoras comedy double act. Not even in a slashy way, necessarily, but they're just so... well, they're like an old married couple. They spend most of their time bickering, arguing, being sarcastic at each other... but you just know that at heart, neither one of them would want to live without the other. They're basically married in all but name.

So, in the spirit of their epic old married coupleness, what better to fill the 'chosen family' trope bingo square than a selection of wallpapers of the boys and their adorable relationship.
