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.

Beautiful! Yay! Thank you!

I echo what the others have said re: the spot-on description of Elijah, and I actually got what you meant the first read through. Viggo feels he can connect with the others easily, but he doesn't quite trust himself to touch Elijah. It's far too loaded a situation.

Please do post it in viggo_elijah!

Glad you liked it! I enjoyed writing it, the prompt was inspiring :-) And yeah, Viggo feels the pull too, and he's determined to stay away.

I so need a Viggo & Elijah icon.

I took your suggestion, and posted to the comm :-D
