And happy Sunday to those that don't.
Ever notice that I never have anything worthwhile to post about? Hmmmm.
So, I'm writing SGA/Bandslash right, and d_copper
goes OMG, ERNIE! and Ernie is so not in this, he's really not, except, dudes, Brendon and Ernie? BFFs. Total BFFs and Rodney's all jealous, because Ernie only really loves HIM and maybe John, but it was, like, love at first sight for Brendon. Brendon just spots him hiding behind Chuck's rolly chair when the Daedalus beams them down, clacking his voicebox and that really cool thick pen with the kittens all over it, and maybe his mickey mouse one, too, just because that's his favorite, and Ernie says, "Mine!" really, really loud when he catches Brendon staring because seriously, Brendon looks like he might be into shiny things, too, and Ernie's torn between bonding with him over this and establishing his dominance as Shiny Foil and Pen collector extrodinare. But Brendon's all, "Oh my god, is that a furry octopus
?" and Ernie likes his voice, so he comes out from behind Chuck and he's all, "Mine? Mine, mine, mine," just to make sure Brendon knows not to take his pens and Ryan knocks Brendon's shoulder and says, "Dude, he speaks Urie."
So Ernie starts. Not following
Brendon, because he only ever follows Rodney and John and sometimes Radek or Ronon, but he hangs around him in the lab, and sometimes he waves a pen when he catches Brendon's eye, almost like he's beckoning him over, and one time Brendon takes him up on his invite and sits crosslegged on the floor by Ernie's basket, and Ernie spends like a half-hour going through all his pens with a soft, "mine, mine, mine," over and over again, and Brendon makes appropriate impressed noises and then hums along a little, which makes Ernie pause and blink up at him with his four eyes, and then Brendon stops humming, only Ernie wants
him to hum, so he bangs his knee with the sparkly gel pen Radek gave him until Brendon gets with the program and starts humming again, and then singing a little, just loud enough for Ernie to hear. Ernie just sits and stares at him and wraps a tentacle around his wrist and taps a pen on the floor to kind of keep the beat.
And then at some point Ernie just maneuvers his way into Brendon's lap, and Brendon's not sure what to do, since he's kind of done looking at Ernie's pens and shiny bits of foil and pieces of Ancient tech that're stuffed under the USAF tee and Brendon's not sure McKay even knows they're there, but Ernie's sort of wrapped around him and won't let go.
And oh my god, throw Temp in that mix and I just might explode from the cuteness, seriously.
