Arrival - cc ficlet

Title: Arrival
Pairing: Chris/Darren
Length/Rating:  ~1,100 / PG
Summary: Teeny tiny follow up to Layover.  If you don’t know what’s happening here, start with Departure.  That’s that, I think.


Chris loiters outside the little wine bar in the West Village, scuffing his shoe against the curb and willing himself to just go inside.

His phone had just buzzed with a text from Darren saying that he was running a few minutes late and Chris can’t decide if it’s worse to stand outside alone or sit inside alone.  Either way, people can see that he’s alone, and waiting.  And possibly being stood up.

Blind Date

One of the biggest problems with online dating, at least according to Michael, was the complete unreliability of photos.  Guys lied.  They lied all the time through outdated photos and misrepresented numbers.  Men posted photos from six years ago, listed their weight as twenty pounds lighter, or used completely stolen photos of someone else and hoped when real life meetings occurred that nothing would be said.  Not with Michael. Having one too many dates expecting a jock and getting a pudgier version, Michael’s profile was explicit and direct.

“No fat guys. Period. If you have gained weight, put on a gut, lost your six pack, don’t lie and pretend you still have it.  I’ll call you a fat ass and bail on the first date.”

One of my many “go to” meals for my family. Easy to make from scratch and it serves quickly particularly if you make the meat in advance. I usually buy two to three pounds of ground meat and then cook up half for spaghetti and the other half for tacos. 

I make my own taco seasoning which means I can have it as spicy or mild as I like.

This one goes as follows:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 TBSP Smoked Paprika
  • 1 TBSP Chili Powder
  • 1 TSP salt,
  • 1 TSP Pepper
  • 1 TSP Cumin
  • 1 TSP Garlic Powder

I then add ½ cup of water to the half cooked meat when I add in the seasoning.

It’s incredible. Even Darren’s ratty old t-shirts can inspire Lynne enough for a fic prompt. ~800 words.

“What are you doing?” Darren asked, seeing Chris in front of their closet with a few garbage bags by his side.

“Spring cleaning,” Chris answered, scanning the contents of the large cabinet with a murderous look in his eyes.

“It’s November, Chris.”

There are a handful of people that know Darren just as well as, or perhaps better than he knows himself, and one of those people is certainly his mother.

It’s always been this way. It makes sense, really; she did give birth to him, after all. She carried him for nine months, felt every kick and squirm of his tiny growing body. She raised him, and spent almost every single day with him for at least the first 18 years of his life. They’ve always shared an extremely close bond; he’s opened up to his mother in ways that he’s never opened up to anyone else before. In fact, she was the first one Darren told when he thought he might like boys just as much as he likes girls.

So of course she knows him incredibly well. That much has never come as a surprise to Darren. She always knows he’s sick even when he’s pretty sure he’s doing a good job of hiding it and she always knows when he’s sad or stressed about something. She knows just what to say to calm his fears, or to encourage him when he needs it most.

So, when she comes into the kitchen during one of his brief weekend visits and asks how long he and Chris have been dating, Darren nearly chokes on his food.
