When I first saw the prompt, I had no idea what was going to come from it, then moments later I had a bunny that wouldn't leave me alone. The song that remains unnamed in the fic is "Shadow Dancing" by Andy Gibb. And yes, I did download it for the sole purpose of writing this fic. :) No one looked over this first, so please forgive and point out and typos and/or errors. Thanks!

Closing Time

As Marian set the empty half-keg in the corner of the back room, he heard the faint strains of synthesized strings and a low funky beat coming from the bar's speakers.

"I don't play this cheesy stuff in my bar," he said, popping his head through the archway to the front. He spied Nadja nudging up the volume, then she whisked by him, sliding her palm across his stomach on her way.

"Relax, Marian." Her hips swayed with each step, her stride matching the beat of the music. She reached the front door and turned the lock. "The bar's closed. There's no one here."

"I still don't like it." Though Marian might not mind so much, he decided as Nadja sashayed over to a dirty table. "Disco…puh."

"It's the Bee Gees!"

Marian cocked his head, watching as Nadja bent over to wipe down the table, her heels clicking against the wooden floor with the rhythm as if the music wouldn't let her stay still. "No, it's Andy Gibb."

"Oh…" Nadja turned to lean against the table, her voice suddenly deceptively innocent, but Marian was too distracted by her fingers wearing a path over the folded edge of her rag to notice. "I thought Andy Gibb was a part of the Bee Gees."

"No, just his older brothers. But they did sing on--what?"

Nadja giggled, holding up the rag to cover her mouth, but Marian could still see her eyes dancing. He quickly closed the distance between them, masking his features into a look of stern consternation, but that only seemed to amuse Nadja more. He couldn't help but join her with a wide grin, though he wasn't quite sure what was so funny.

He tugged the towel out of her grasp and tossed it to the table. "What?"

"You--King of Disco," she said, her tone bubbling with the remnants of laughter. She reached to poke him in the chest but Marian caught her finger, fighting down a twinge of embarrassment at her words.

"I don't know what you're talking about."

"Sure, Marian. I can see you now when I'm not around and you're all alone here. You strut around to Stayin' Alive, don't you?"

"No--Nadja, please, I just…remember things. I really don't like disco."

"Mhm." There was a certain way Nadja smiled at him, like she had a secret, and if Marian was a very good boy, she'd share it with him. That's the way she smiled at him now, her eyes glimmering beneath the low lights of the bar, and Marian forgot all about being embarrassed. She inched closer and slipped her finger from his grasp, then guided his hands down to where her hips circled with the beat, their thighs brushing together.

"And what about dancing to disco music?" Her hands coasted back over his arms, and without realizing it, Marian was moving too, pressing her against the edge of the table.

"That might be okay," Marian whispered. "But I can think of something else I'd rather do right now."

"We've still got to clean up the bar." Nadja trailed her fingers through the hair along the nape of his neck, tilting her head as her lips touched his for the barest hint of a kiss.

Marian liked to be teased, but right then he wanted more than the brief taste she'd offered. He stole another kiss, skimming his tongue along her lower lip as he retreated. "It can wait."

Squeeeeeee! That was utterly adorable *bounces madly and hugs ficlet* I adore the way you write Nadja's impishness - it's so cute and girlish yet sexy and in character! And how Marian's just utterly smitten and can't keep up the stern face and forgets all about being embarrassed when she smiles at him... awwwww!

oh, and I love this line:

There was a certain way Nadja smiled at him, like she had a secret, and if Marian was a very good boy, she'd share it with him.

I know exactly what smile you mean, and that's such a lovely, apt way of putting it. This is great! (Go post at NL! *innocent*)

Yay! I'm so glad you liked it! I was giggling most of the time while writing it. And listening to Shadow Dancing, and various Bee Gees songs (that Lil!).

I think I might be just the tiniest bit in love with Nadja now. It makes me so happy that you like how I write her--she is really sexy and flirty, and sort of innocent, too, all at once. Hee! And the smile! Yay! I'm glad you liked that, too! I did go back and watch a few Nadja/Marian scenes today....

Soon I will figure out how to work Etienne in... *plots*

(Yes, Ma'am!)

Oh my God, I totally didn't even make the connection with ep321. Hahahaa. I'd seen that scene once when first watching AWZ, but forgot all about it. I was wondering why Lil picked Bee Gees as a prompt!

I'm relieved to know it fits!

(Yes...I've been thinking about Nadja/Marian/Etienne for a little bit, wondering if I could possibly make it work, because...um, hello AWZ OT3 if it does!)

LOL, that is too funny, because even without remembering it, you made it fit perfectly! There's going to be lots of snickering with that scene in ep 321 now, hehehe!

(ooooooh. WANT!)

Lilith: awz-hetship wtf?[info]lilithilien on January 5th, 2009 01:44 am (UTC)
OMG! *bounces crazily like the crack!bunny* You did it, you really did it, and so wonderfully!!! Oh, mischievous Nadja, how I love you. And Marian, pretending to be so cool, yet knowing all about the Gibb family history -- that made me giggle tons!

I love the line about the secrets too, that Aldi already mentioned -- that's the perfect description for that look -- and the image of her hands coasting over his arms, and his attention to her fingers on the rag, and all the sensual details you've packed into these few words. And I thought we just needed cameras in the locker room -- now we need to get a second one for No. 7!

I'm so glad you told me about this before I sailed off to sleep -- now I've got wonderful images in my head. HET images even, and since when has that happened?!!!

Thank you thank you thank you for such an amazing response to the prompt! I love it!!!!

I'm so embarrassed! I had no clue why you asked for Bee Gees as your prompt--I was like, "That's totally random." Until just above Aldi mentioned ep 321, and I rushed over to look at it, (in German of course, since we don't have the subtitles done yet) and then remembered it was part of the AAS mashup of clips--and I'm super relieved that this fits in, omg. I had no idea when writing it. *facepalm*

I'm so pleased that you like it, and thank you so much for your shiny, shiny comment! *bounces with you*

HET images even, and since when has that happened?!!!

Marian/Nadja just break all the rules! I swear, they're addicting!

I still can't get over my complete ignorance of the prompt. I can't stop laughing at myself. And here I was trying to subtly check ages to make sure that Marian could potentially be a fan of the Bee Gees...hahahahaha *dies*

Oh wow, that's funny! My prompts have been random before, but never *that* random! Well, you certainly managed a great story in the dark! *hugs tight*
