Title: Hands Off (drabble)
Fandom: LOTR RPS
Pairing:: Viggo Mortensen, Elijah Wood
Rating: G
Feedback: yes, please
Disclaimer: this is not true, I made it up.
Archive: yes, just let me know
Notes: Thanks to anatsuno who pronounced it readable. I wrote this for azrhiaz on her birthday and plumb forgot to post it. HBD, sweetie!



It's a swirling upside-down world that Viggo has stumbled into, like no other movie he's ever worked on.

In the vortex, the still center, is a certain charismatic young man who treats it like a combination of "let's pretend," and a day job. Everybody's drawn to him, wants his attention, as if his confidence would rub off onto them.

Viggo's no better than any of them -- he knows that -- which lets him sympathize when things go wrong. Viggo offers a shoulder to cry on and a helping hand to everyone, except Elijah, who just gets the shoulder. Hands off.

i love it. but at the same time it went over my head. i am not sure why it's hands off for elijah.

i have a vague idea that it's because he doesn't want to be tempted? i am not sure.

i like this world here. and i would love to have the lest couple sentences explained to me, cause i am curious!

i really like the way you describe elijah when he's working. this is not at the first time i've really connected to your descriptions.

Ooo real feedback, thanks!

It was hard to do the second part in drabble format, and I'm now I'm wishing I did it better. To explain: this Viggo is distressed by his attraction to Elijah, he thinks it's both unprofessional and kinda creepy given the age difference. So he just sucks it up and suppresses it.

And you like my descriptions! :-D
