Summary: Sometimes, instead of heading right away for the hotel bedroom, they meet up at the bar. (Post-series, non-epilogue compliant.)
Author’s Note: Written for rosie_spleen’s Bleeding Cuticles Challenge (Day 16).


This is a tiny companion piece for This is Gretchen.

Sometimes, instead of heading right away for the hotel bedroom, they meet up at the bar, and Gretchen offers Sara to buy her a drink. “Scotch?” she asks with a stone face. Sara’s not impressed. These days, it takes more than that, more than knowing that Gretchen has done her homework, to impress her. She sits on a high stool, lets the other woman ogle her knees or her breasts – this is why the two of them are here, after all, right? – and orders an iced tea.

*

Sometimes, instead of having rendezvous at the hotel bar, they meet up downtown, and Sara lets Gretchen into her car. Gretchen sits where the hubby usually sits. She wonders if Sara does to the hubby what she does to Gretchen, in that car, downtown, parked in the street. If she pushes her hand between his legs and into his pants, and strokes him until he comes, until she shakes with arousal. If she can’t help herself. If the hubby smirks the way Gretchen smirks when Sara wipes her slick hand with a tissue.

*

They’re in a headlock. Have been from day one, and both of them know it.

It only makes things better.

End note: Yes. So much for yesterday’s drabble being my last one...

Oh no, no, no....they're not mutually exclusive at all. I'm doing a horrific job explaining myself. NC-17 stories that are pure sex aren't generally that interesting (although I've saved a few Inception PWPs lately. That bug has bitten me hard). Deftly done psychological layers are key to an excellent short story of any kind, for sure.

I just meant that I'm assuming there are great multi-chapter fics out there that build up from Sara and Gretchen's canon history to having some sort of...I don't know what. Or, there are probably great fics out there that just touch on the psychological angles and angsty discomfort. And I personally am too fanfiction-shallow to give those sorts of stories a chance. I do read fiction that makes me squirm psychologically, but for *me* fanfiction serves a different purpose, and I personally can't mix deep psychological discomfort and eroticism.

Now that I've driven that point into the ground (and, most likely, still didn't express myself well) I'll click over and check out the longer Sara/Gretchen. I'm sure that I've read it...I went nuts reading your stuff when I first found you...but I need to check it out and inflate your perfectly sized ego. I do remember that I liked it.

lol, no, you're perfectly clear and I get it now. I'm sorry it took more explanations to hit home. I read it wrong and was confused because, of course, it didn't fit with what usually comes out from your comments.

And I personally am too fanfiction-shallow

I wrote a couple of Sara/Sofa fics, with absolutely no 'deeper' meaning and even though I don't especially like Sofia, just because of the prettiness. I can go deep into fanfiction-shallowness ;-)

although I've saved a few Inception PWPs lately. That bug has bitten me hard

*g* PWP for the sake of PWP can be fun too. And those hard biting bugs are soooo nice every now and then!
I wish I could get into movies fandoms. I'm slow and need a lot of 'material' before I feel like writing or even reading fanfics. It tends to limit me to tv shows fandoms, and even then, very few of them.
