mood: pleased
music: "Ride the White Horses", Pint & Dale

Inspired by sparcck's Mary Sueage challenge - slashing the slashers with the actors. Thanks to kay_elf and sidewalk_ashes for letting me make it public. And to lobelia321 for dinner.



Kay and Maffy were not thrilled that the Vietnamese restaurant had no tables for two, but they went ahead and sat at the big common table. The place was so loud that they didn't notice him at first, till the host touched Kay's back.

"Room for one more," the host announced.

They looked round and couldn't believe it. They tried to keep cool as Dom slid in to the chair beside Kay. He gave them a sunny smile, and then looked a little closer.

"Hair!" he announced, looking at Maffy. "Milton Keynes. Hey, how are you, man?"

"Fine," Maffy managed.

Dom smiled at Kay and said "Hi, I'm Dom."

By this time, she'd recovered a bit of equilibrium. "I'm Kay and the hair-boy here is Maffy. I saw you there too."

"Wicked. It was a circus, yeah? What's good in this place? Is that the pho? Can I have a taste?"

"Um, sure, go ahead," she answered.

It's hard to be nervous around someone who's tasting your soup. They relaxed and chatted a bit. Dom had been stood up by a friend, "Not from the movie, just a girl who I know from school." So he was at loose ends and seemed a bit lonely but bouncy, drumming his fingers on the table or his legs.

He ordered a pitcher of beer and a lot of food which he proceeded to share. They talked about his new movies. Maffy and Kay didn't make a big deal about fandom, and Dom seemed to relax a bit. They all compared music they liked, the bands they were forming and the pickups that Dom had played in. He told them, in strict confidence, about the CD coming out -- 'Pando-something' with Viggo and Elijah and Billy -- it sounded weird but brilliant. When the check came, Dom grabbed it with a smirk, saying "It's my treat, kids."

As they came out of the restaurant, Maffy and Kay got shy again. But Dom would have nothing of it. "Don't go yet, it's a great night and I want company!" So they went round in the crowds in Leicester Square, talking of nothing in particular.

After the fifth pub with shite music, Dom suggested they go back to his hotel bar. Kay was a little self-conscious, she wasn't dressed for that kind of thing. "Well then," said Dom, "come up and see how the C-list stars live."

It was an odd hotel, very American. Giant beds and funny triangular desks. They laughed about the mirror wall facing the shower, though Maffy and Kay shared a look which meant, "Oh the slash potential in that!"

There was a bottle of champagne in the ice bucket, which Dom opened for them. "There's shit like that everywhere", he said, "I sometimes worry a little about getting too used to it." But he smiled as he poured and gave them their glasses.

As they drank, he gave them a long look. "Do you," he asked, "come as a pair? And, would you like to stay?"

I didn't know what would happen when I started. It just flowed so naturally. I wish my other fics were this much of a trip to write.

Yeah!

The "dude" thing continues to crack me up. When I was in college, it meant something rather different.
