Summary: Nick and Stephen are catching up with some... filing.
Author note: This is entirely fredbassett and munchkinofdoom's faults. They were complaining about the lack of slash and/or smut in my fic. So I wrote this, just to see whether I could.

            While the imminent threat of rampaging prehistoric creatures was a new and interesting priority for Nick these days, he did, on occasion, have to admit the fact that he had a real job, and that part of that job involved filing. A lot of filing.

            So, in the time honoured tradition of department heads everywhere, he had roped in underlings to help. Which was how he found himself spending a sunny Friday in the depths of the storage level beneath his department, cataloguing boxes of fossils with Stephen, while Connor was sorting through yet more boxes in the office upstairs.

            Nick squinted up at the box high up on the shelving unit. Either the label on it was fading badly, or the light down here was useless. Or possibly both.

            “Stephen, can you read what that box says?”

            Stephen wandered over and stood right behind him.


            “Well, you’re a lot of use, aren’t you?” Nick muttered.  

            Without warning, Stephen’s hand slid around his waist and under his shirt. Nick caught his breath, trying not to appear startled.

            “Stephen, this is hardly the time,” he said quietly.

            “I’m bored,” Stephen said in a voice that suggested exactly what he would rather be doing.

            “We’re supposed to be working.” Nick kept his voice low. He was almost certain he could hear Connor through the open door to his office. He was humming something that sounded suspiciously like the Imperial March.

            “Booooring,” Stephen said, his other hand settling on Nick’s hip.

            Nick closed his eyes and tried to quell the shiver as Stephen moved closer, pressing their bodies together.

            “Connor’s just up there. He might hear. He might come down at any moment.”

Stephen lazily caressed his hip, letting his fingers slide closer and closer to Nick’s crotch. His jeans were starting to feel uncomfortably tight.

“Should I be worried that you’re thinking about Connor at a time like this? Because I have to warn you, I’m the jealous type.”

“Steph-” Nick’s protest was cut off with a sudden sharp intake of breath as Stephen popped open the button on his jeans and slid his hand down. At the same time Stephen leaned in and nuzzled his neck.

Nick tried to turn around, but Stephen’s hands suddenly held him firmly in place.

“No, no Nick. Filing is far more important. You said so yourself. So you just keep paying attention to those boxes.”

Nick knew his deep, throaty growl was only going to act as an encouragement, but he couldn’t stop it. Nuzzling turned to kissing just beneath his jaw, but Stephen chose that moment to fully undo the zip on Nick’s jeans and begin to caress his hardening cock. Nick pushed back into the younger man and felt Stephen’s satisfyingly hard bulge. At this new pressure, Stephen was the one catching his breath, and he retaliated by replacing his lips with teeth and nipping hard.

Nick gasped, trying to steady himself against the shelving unit. Somehow, part of his brain was still protesting that this was wrong. Fuck filing, he thought, as Stephen’s gentle strokes on his cock became faster, harder, his grip a little bit tighter.

            What about Connor? the rational part of his brain still protested. Fuck Connor as well, was the answer. Although, not in the literal sense.

            His breathing was ragged as Stephen speeded the pace, still nipping with his teeth even as he brought Nick to the edge, and then with one practised stroke tipped him over it.

            Nick closed his eyes, shuddering as he came, and he was only vaguely aware of Stephen’s free hand holding his waist and supporting him.


            Nick’s head shot up and in the gap between two shelves he could see Connor at the top of the stairs. Stephen chuckled and slid away as Nick tried to simultaneously clean himself up, rearrange his jeans, and gather his senses enough to answer. Luckily, from here the shelving unit and its boxes were between him and Connor, but if he came down the stairs…

            “What?” His voice was sharper than he had intended, and Connor looked startled.

            “I’m going to grab something for lunch, I just wondered if you guys wanted me to pick anything up for you?”

            An idea formed in the back of Nick’s mind. And idea that made him start to smile.

            “Yes, actually, can you go to the university shop and get me one of those pre-packed salad bowl things they do?”

            Connor looked surprised. “Yeah, okay.” He headed off, humming again.

            “Salad?” Stephen asked with a raised eyebrow and a sceptical expression. “You don’t even like salad.”

            “No, I don’t,” Nick admitted. “But I also happen to know that the university shop is at least a ten minute walk from here.”

            He advanced slowly towards Stephen with an evil smile. Revenge was going to be very sweet indeed.

Oooh, splendid! I didn't expect this when I wandered over to LJ and checked my f-list! I'm happy to take the blame (shared with the munchkin, of course!) for prodding you into slash writing, becasue it worked and it was fun. Box!Sex. I never knew museum catalogueing could be hot!! :) (It never is when I have to do any!!) Loved the "fuck Connor" line, and as for sending the poor boy half way across campus for a salad box ..... very mean! And funny!

And now you've started slashing, there'll be no holding you back *grins*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 21st, 2007 10:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. Happy it gave you a nice surprise. It was kind of a surprise for me as well, I just went home yesterday and wrote it in about an hour (maybe less), just to see if I could actually do it. And apparently I can. Cool.

You wanted to know whether you could? Well, you can! This, to second what fredbassett said, was a wonderful surprise lurking in my f-list! Hot, hot, hot.

Although... *throws small tantrum* Nothing like this ever happens when I'm doing my museum cataloguing! Maybe you need to be cataloguing fossils or something?

I'm putting this straight in my memories.

*tries to think of new ways to encourage more slash* Mwahahahahaha!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 21st, 2007 10:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. As I said to fredbassett, this was kind of an experiment for me fic-wise. Glad to know it worked.

"Nothing like this ever happens when I'm doing my museum cataloguing!"

Clearly you need to have more attractive (and slightly slutty) underlings!

Nothing like that ever used to happen when I was an archaeologist either. What sort of museum do you work at, out of interest?

Love it. Thanks.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 22nd, 2007 07:10 am (UTC) (Link)
thanks, glad you like.

Wheee! Hunter!Stephen and deer-caught-in-the-headlights!Nick... lovely stuff. See? You can do it! Now just give me Connor/Ryan and I won't have to hurt you. *nods*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 22nd, 2007 07:14 am (UTC) (Link)
meep. *ducks for cover*

That seems a little harsh after I've written slash and everything. No Connor/Ryan yet. But I may have to write more stand-alone slash, just for practise so it'll be right when C/R finally gets there. That sounds like a plan with no obvious drawbacks.
byrons_brain From: byrons_brain Date: August 22nd, 2007 10:32 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh wonderful! please write more... I love slash but there's hardly any about... and more naughty Stephen too... ::hugs::
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 22nd, 2007 12:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks, glad you liked.

But what do you mean "there's hardly any slash"? That's *all* there seems to be these days; I keep complaining about the lack of hetfic on the Primeval comms.
rodlox From: rodlox Date: August 22nd, 2007 07:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
gee, couldn't ya have fancied a curry, Professor?
paraphrasing Ace :D

very well-written story.

(and that, Stephen, is why you'll never advance in academia: unwilling to file things)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 22nd, 2007 08:38 pm (UTC) (Link)

I suspect if Stephen did want to advance in academia, he would be planning to bat his eyes and offer sexual favours in return for promotion.

Could someone please post a link to Primeval_fanfic, I can't find it...*wail*

Ooooohhh... nicey nice. ^____^

Luvin de final line.

*mind wanders off....*

Neva knew filing cud b so fun!

deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 9th, 2008 06:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
glad you liked. Clearly the key to having fun while filing is to have a bored Stephen somewhere nearby.
reggietate From: reggietate Date: October 31st, 2008 11:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yay! Filing!porn :-)Over from the Denial rec post, and I love this. Lovely hotness for a cold Halloween night.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 31st, 2008 11:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
Heehee, thanks. As I just commented to Telperion, I think this is the one and only time I have ever written Nick/Stephen. Filing!porn is fun, and possibly fits into the category with office!porn and desk!porn.
kristen_mara From: kristen_mara Date: November 1st, 2008 11:16 am (UTC) (Link)

////“Well, you’re a lot of use, aren’t you?” Nick muttered.////

Well, he soon finds out how much use Stephen is in these situations... ;)

Great fun, especially Nick thinking fast to get Connor temporarily far far away, and a good look back at their original job.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: November 1st, 2008 11:29 am (UTC) (Link)
thanks. Horny, distracting!Stephen makes any job interesting.
x_bellaitalia_x From: x_bellaitalia_x Date: April 21st, 2009 08:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
Neep! I love this!

Loved the line about 'fuck Connor'. Although really Nick, sending the poor boy off on a wild goose chase just so that you can have your wicked way with Stephen...*tuts* Most unprofessional :)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 21st, 2009 10:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
heehee, Nick can be *very* unprofessional when he's being distracted by Stephen. Glad to know you liked it.
knitekat From: knitekat Date: August 21st, 2009 09:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
Naughty Stephen, but mmm for thoughts on Nick's revenge, though sending Connor all the way for something Nick doesn't like is mean .. pokes.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 24th, 2009 07:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
Naughty!Stephen and Plotting!Nick is a great combination for fun and frolics while filing. And surprisingly alliterative!
joereaves From: joereaves Date: September 24th, 2010 04:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't seem to have ever commentedon this, but I definitely remember it. Very hot :D

And as always I see everything is the Hound's fault.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 24th, 2010 06:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee, thanks. Yes, most things usually do end up being Fred's fault.
canadian_jay From: canadian_jay Date: September 24th, 2010 04:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oooooh! Awesome. Naughty Stephen is naughty. xD

(Also, listening to this with Bad Romance playing in the background certainly adds a certain... atmosphere to it, hah.)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 24th, 2010 06:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee, thanks. Naughty!Stephen is very definitely naughty. Perhaps Nick should punish him...
