Disclaimer: They're not mine, they belong to Rob Thomas. I only borrow them.
Author's Note: And here we go. I've finally ventured into VM slash. Anyway, this was written for my table for slashfic25. Enjoy and feedback's always welcome!

Logan had once heard that the kitchen was a “hotbed for romance.” He could never remember who had said it but he figured that the person who had said it was either completely delusional or on crack.

Until recently, that is.

He didn’t really understand it since he’d been sure that Duncan wanted to be with Veronica more than anything. Why else would he have shown up at her work every single day that summer? Why would he sit in her section?

But even after Veronica had broken up with him, after she and Duncan had gotten back together, Duncan had been giving him these looks. Looks that he hadn’t really understood coming from Duncan because if Duncan missed his friendship, those looks were sending an entirely different message.

Still, when Duncan had offered to let him move in, he’d been grateful. The friendship that they’d slowly been rebuilding got stronger and now it was something that Logan couldn’t define.

It started fairly innocent. A brush of the hands when they’d both been in the kitchen getting snacks and had reached for the same thing. Neither had said anything about it and they’d just continued on with things the way they were.

It had progressed from just hands brushing against each other though. Just yesterday when Logan had been getting a glass, Duncan had come up behind him, body pressing against his as he reached passed Logan for a glass of his own. They’d exchanged a look that said everything their mouths wouldn’t before going back to their game.

They weren’t in the kitchen today though. They were sitting on the couch playing video games and rather than sitting on the floor, Logan was sitting on the couch, Duncan’s thigh pressed against his. He glanced down at the way they pressed together and then up at Duncan, only to find that Duncan was looking back at him. He sucked in a breath before turning back to the screen.

Looked like the romance had moved out of the kitchen.

I used to really like Logan/Duncan slash, but after S2 I lost the desire to read it because I don't like Duncan so much anymore. However, I really liked this. I like how subtle it is, and yet it's enough to enable the reader to imagine what could happen next.

I only read this because you wrote it, so bravo :-)

Thanks! I claimed them a few months ago and then I got involved with writing stuff for stagesoflove and VM challenges and some of my Buffy stuff so I completely forgot about it. Then the other day I decided to sit down and just do it because darn it, I claimed them so I can't just back off even if basically all of season 2 made me want to slap Duncan at times.

My solution? Write them both as in character as I can while slipping little changes in there so I don't want to slap the boy. LOL. Next time I'm so claiming Logan/Weevil or something...

Anyway, thanks for reading! I love getting your comments. ^_^

great now I won't be able to go into my kitchen without thinking about Logan naked. I'm going to starve!
Nicole: Oh yeah. Just friends. *snort*blue_icy_rose on June 25th, 2006 06:18 pm (UTC)
