ficlet: Scientific Curiosity

I know I *should* be working on birthday fics for for both Luka and Munchkin, but this one queue jumped. The birthday fics will appear soon, honest.

Title: Scientific Curiosity
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Pairing/characters: Ryan/Connor
Rating: 18
Warnings: gratuitous fluff 
Spoilers: None
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.
Word count: approx 550
Summary: Ryan is trying to read. Connor is bored. The two do not go well together.
AN: Written for mysteriousaliwz, because I promised angst-free C/R fluff.  


  

          “Ryan?”

            “Hmmm?” Ryan didn’t look up from his book. Quiet mornings in were occasions to be savoured, and he didn’t get many chances to read undisturbed for any significant amount of time normally.

            “Can I ask you something?”

            Although, it was starting to sound like the ‘undisturbed’ part of the equation wasn’t going to happen today. He tore his eyes away from the page and glanced at Connor, lying beside him in the bed and managing to look both bored and mischievous at the same time. Ryan suspected this did not bode well for his chances of getting any further than page 36 any time soon.

            “Go on then.”

            “If you could only have the same thing as a meal every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?”

            Ryan wondered if his expression in any way conveyed how utterly baffled he was by Connor’s randomness.

            “Hypothetically speaking, of course,” Connor added, as if it should have been obvious. He glanced up at Ryan and smiled.

            “That’s what you wanted to ask?”

            “Yes.”

            “Why?”

            “Just wondering. So, what would it be?”

            Ryan decided it might be easier to play along than to attempt to understand what was going on in his lover’s head this morning.

            “Practically it would have to be something like a Sunday roast with loads of veg, cover the maximum amount of food groups for a balanced diet. But if we’re talking hypothetically, it’d have to be bacon and fried egg butty.”

            Connor nodded, as if Ryan had just answered one the great mysteries of the universe.

            “Cool. I thought you might say that.”

            Ryan waited to see if there was anything else on Connor’s mind, and then risked returning to his book.

            “If you could only listen to the same song forever, what would it be?”

            “Connor! I’m trying to read!”

            “I was only asking,” Connor pouted.

            Ryan sighed and relented.     

“There is no song on this earth that I would listen to forever. Even hypothetically. After the first ten times I’d have destroyed the CD, and quite likely the stereo as well.”

            “Oh.”

            “Anything else?” Ryan inquired.

            “If you could only have one type of sex forever, what would it be?”

            “One type of what?

            “You know, like either wanking or a blow job, or topping or bottoming. What would it be? Hypothetically, of course.”

Connor was starting to smirk a little. Ryan still wasn’t sure whether to be irritated or worried by this.

            “Why?”

            “Just curious,” Connor shrugged.

            Ryan looked back at his book, but the words were no longer making any form of rational sense. And now a part of his body that wanted absolutely nothing to do with books was starting to take an interest. He admitted defeat, put the book down and turned back to Connor.

            “I think you’d better remind me what the options are,” he said with a sly smile. “I wouldn’t want to spoil your hypothetical results by making an uninformed decision, after all.”

            He caught sight of Connor’s smug grin as the young man slithered down under the duvet in the direction of Ryan’s cock. It occurred to Ryan that he wasn’t entirely sure which of them had won the discussion.

A moment later he didn’t particularly care.

Heeee! Adorable!
I would say poor Ryan, but I'm sure he doesn't mind really *veg*

Ryan wondered if his expression in any way conveyed how utterly baffled he was by Connor’s randomness.
LOL!!

“If you could only listen to the same song forever, what would it be?”
“Connor! I’m trying to read!”

LMAO!!!

*happysigh*

heehee! Poor Ryan, he has such a lot to put up with! And he probably ought to be used to being baffled by Connor's randomness by now.

Hehe very cute. :)

hee, thanks.

*Sporfles very loudly*

Lovely! I think Connor's achieved his result *g*. But it's very important that they do lots of research!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 27th, 2010 10:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
oh yes, research is very important, and should be repeated several times to ensure consistency of results.

In other news, I'm finally getting somewhere with your birthday fic, so that shouldn't be too much longer (fingers crossed the bunnies continue to behave). Sorry it's taking so long, I've been struggling with a load of editing for Writers Club for the last week or so and it's all taken massively longer than I expected.

Connor's randomness should win randomness awards! *g* Bu I suspect that Ryan wasn't that bothered by it in the end... ;)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 27th, 2010 10:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
Connor wins at epic random *pets Connor*. Ryan will probably forgive him for the random, though - he seems to enjoy the side effects of the randomness.

*glomps*
An utterly delightful piece of fluff! Thanks m'dear, I love it :D

Ryan suspected this did not bode well for his chances of getting any further than page 36 any time soon.
Lol, when Connor gets in a random (or should that be randy?) mood, Ryan isn't going to get much reading done.

I do so love the spirit of scientific curiosity, and I particularly approve of their research methods *happy sigh*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 27th, 2010 10:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
glad you liked. I was supposed to be working on birthday fics for people, but this bunny ambushed me the other day and queue jumped when I wasn't paying attention!

LOL, Ryan has no chance when Connor is in a random/randy mood. He's probably used to it by now, though.
jaynedoll From: jaynedoll Date: January 27th, 2010 10:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
Awwh, that was a lovely bit of fluff. I suspect Connor is more cunning than he lets on and enjoys teasing Ryan with randomness leading to hot sex *g*

I wonder what Ryan would opt for if he could only have one type of sex.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 27th, 2010 10:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm sure Connor isn't quite as innocent as he tries to appear, and he's extra cunning when it comes to getting attention when he's bored.

I wonder what Ryan would opt for if he could only have one type of sex.
I have no idea. I suspect Ryan is just hoping he never has to find out!

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Connor is very good at distraction *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 28th, 2010 08:10 am (UTC) (Link)
I know *I'd* certainly be distracted if he was next to me in bed!
auntypam From: auntypam Date: January 28th, 2010 05:02 am (UTC) (Link)
Connor in this reminds me of a few people I know. Since I'm rarely with out a book, I find no one wants to talk to me more than when I'm reading:) Must admit would love to have someone like Connor to distract me*BG*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 28th, 2010 08:12 am (UTC) (Link)
heehee! Poor Ryan, but I'm sure being distracted by Connor is going to be far more fun than reading a book.
From: sallycandance Date: January 28th, 2010 06:16 am (UTC) (Link)
Heehee - cute!! Connor's randomness is brilliant, and Ryan sitting in bed reading... why there's a sexy image *licks lips*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 28th, 2010 08:13 am (UTC) (Link)
mmm... yes, Ryan sitting in bed reading and Connor sprawled next to him being random. That's *two* pretty sexy images.
bigtitch From: bigtitch Date: January 28th, 2010 08:03 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh poor Ryan you could practically hear his brain changing gears trying to keep up with Connor.

This is fab! I love morning snuggle fics!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 28th, 2010 08:16 am (UTC) (Link)
I seem to be getting a collection of C/R fluff fics with them having morning snuggles and random conversations, they're just too cute when they're like that. But sometimes you just have to feel sorry for Ryan.
munchkinofdoom From: munchkinofdoom Date: January 28th, 2010 08:45 am (UTC) (Link)
Connor... *shakes head* He has an evil mind. *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 28th, 2010 01:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
oh, definitely. Connor isn't nearly as innocent as he pretends to be!
echo_fangirl From: echo_fangirl Date: January 28th, 2010 10:44 am (UTC) (Link)
Snicker... And everybody wins! :D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 28th, 2010 01:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yep, it's a win win situation, that's probably why Ryan lets him get away with it.
From: madcatt82 Date: January 28th, 2010 11:15 am (UTC) (Link)
*giggles*
Awww, that's utterly adorable!
Ryan does have a lot to put up with, though I suspect that he doesn't really mind! *bg*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 28th, 2010 01:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ryan may have been practising his long-suffering expression, but he seems to enjoy the randomness when it happens.
angelnimp From: angelnimp Date: January 28th, 2010 12:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Too cute ^_^ Devious!Connor is just delightful!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 28th, 2010 01:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. Devious!Connor is such fun.
fredbassett From: fredbassett Date: January 28th, 2010 12:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
That was very cute indeed. Connor is sweet when he's being distracting.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 28th, 2010 01:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
poor Ryan. Hopefully the cuteness and fringe benefits cancel out the distracting.
