Title: The Trouble With January
Pairing(s): George/Mitchell
Rating: R
Disclaimer: They're not mine, they're Toby Whithouse's
Warnings: None
Summary: just a bit of slash really!
A/N: This was written to follow on from a fic called Mating Instinct by Dragonlet. You should read that first, firstly cos it's really good and secondly because this will make more sense if you do. And it's very short, so no excuses. Thankyou to Dragonlet for the inspiration, and sorry if you don't like the direction it goes in :-P


Mitchell leans across George to grab the packet of biscuits, practically lying in George’s lap for a split second with his warm musky scent rising straight to the werewolf’s oversensitive nose. The reaction is predictable and immediate, and George pushes Mitchell off him and jumps up, hands shoved in pockets in an attempt to hide the most obvious symptom of his condition. Thank god he doesn’t wear his jeans as tight as Mitchell, at least. Ignoring Mitchell’s startled yelp, he rushes for the stairs.

In his room he collapses to his knees and fumbles at his zip with shaking fingers. He despairs, he really does. It's only the 5th of January- how is he meant to survive til the end of the month? 

Fly undone now, breathing quickening. Just think of Mitchell, imagine it’s Mitchell’s hand... oh, god, Mitchell...


Oh, god- Mitchell! George feels embarrassment and excitement surge through him in equal measure as he freezes, then scrabbles hurriedly to pull his jeans back up.

“What do you want?” It comes out a bit squeaky, but at least Mitchell can’t see what he’s doing, at least he hasn’t opened the- oh. He has opened the door.

Mitchell looks... embarrassed, maybe, or even shocked, and part of George thinks he should enjoy such a rare event while it lasts, but then the vampire’s scent washes over him again and he can’t help the noise that escapes his lips.

“Did you just growl at me, George?”

“No! It wasn’t a growl, it was... a groan. It’s different.”

Mitchell casts his sceptical eyes over George, still kneeling in the middle of the floor- the flushed cheeks, the hastily pulled up jeans, the hand still clutching at his fly- and then steps further into the room and closes the door.

“What’s wrong?”

“There’s nothing wrong! I just want you to get out of my bloody room!”

Mitchell looks a bit hurt. “Are you... did I do something, is that why you’re avoiding me?”

George closes his eyes and presses his hands to his forehead, biting back tears of frustration. “Jesus, Mitchell, I cannot have this conversation with you right now!”

Mitchell crosses the room to kneel beside his friend, placing a supposedly reassuring hand on his back. “Come on, George, whatever it is, it can’t be that bad.” He’s rubbing circles between George’s shoulder blades now, which really isn’t having the desired soothing effect, and George can’t but honestly he can’t not when Mitchell’s so tantalisingly close.

Without really knowing what he’s doing, he finds himself on top of Mitchell, pinning him to the floor with his hands on his hips, and his nose pressed into his hair, his armpits, his stomach, his groin. Grunting and panting like the animal he tries so hard not to be. Even as he’s breathing in this all-engulfing scent he’s thinking that this is it, he’s really ruined things now, he’ll have to move out, get a new job, take his chances on his own again. He’s just about decided he might as well curl up and die right now when he feels Mitchell’s hands on the back of his head, guiding him closer to the suddenly obvious bulge in his jeans.

George growls again, unashamedly this time, and rips all the buttons off Mitchell’s shirt.

∞ ∞ ∞

A little while later, Mitchell pushes his sweaty hair back from his face and then wraps his arms around George once again. “You still haven’t told me why you’ve been avoiding me,” he smiles.

George looks up at Mitchell from what he thinks is his new favourite position, twined possessively around the vampire with his head on his chest. He laughs incredulously. “Why do you think? In case this happened!”

“And in hindsight, do you think that was maybe a bit... silly?” Mitchell says mischievously, stroking his fingers gently over the bumps of George’s spine.

George sighs, tingling under Mitchell’s touch. “I don’t think you understand. It’s actually physically painful to be in the same room as you sometimes.”

“Oh great, thanks. Although I’m the one with carpet burns all up my back, so we’re probably about even on the pain front now.”

“Sorry,” George tells him, stretching up to plant a kiss on Mitchell’s lips. “I think I got a bit carried away.”

Mitchell grins and rolls them over so he’s kneeling astride George’s hips. “Not a problem. And you just let me know the next time you need some pain relief, ok?”

George reaches up and snags his hand into Mitchell’s hair. “Well, I think the last dose might be wearing off about now...”

This is brilliant! Never been one for George/ Mitchell really but still. :P

Thankyou! Glad you liked and proud to have briefly overcome your anti-george/mitchell sensors :-P
May. 11th, 2009 06:19 pm (UTC)
This was great! They were both very in character, and I felt sorry for George at the same time as I was giggling at his condition. *cough*
May. 11th, 2009 08:18 pm (UTC)
yeah poor George... still, he got what he wanted in the end! Thankyou for commenting :-)
Like your icon btw! The world needs more Seth.

So cute and I can just imagine the Mitchell smirk with this line “And in hindsight, do you think that was maybe a bit... silly?”
May. 11th, 2009 08:19 pm (UTC)
Awww thanks. Yes Mitchell was definitely smirking at that point... in fact I think my favourite thing about writing this was imagining their facial expressions!
May. 11th, 2009 07:08 pm (UTC)
Oh, that was brilliant. Really in character and very hot too. Yummy :)
May. 11th, 2009 08:21 pm (UTC)
Yay thankyou! This is the first thing I've written from George's pov so it's nice to know it worked. :-)
May. 11th, 2009 08:21 pm (UTC)
I agree completely with the above comment from, erm... filthgoblin? *g*
May. 11th, 2009 08:24 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Glad you liked. *is happy*

Wow, much like the show does, this snippet enacts the reversal from awkward embarrassment to something else really nicely (although usually in the show the "something else" is pathos or horror or something and not, well, this ;]), and I as reader feel as relieved as George probably does (somewhere under the growling and the inducing of rug burn) to wind up in "something else." Mitchell's humour in the face of that is very entirely Mitchell as George is completely George. Nicely done!

Blimey, that's like a proper review! *is flattered* Thanks, I'm really happy you liked it :-)
May. 11th, 2009 09:59 pm (UTC)
Yee this is awesome :D I really like the direction you took it, and thank you so much for linking to me!

(Hee hee rug burns oh give him more rug burns George :3)
May. 12th, 2009 11:36 am (UTC)
Phew :-P
Glad you liked it, and you're very welcome for the link, the least I could do in return for the inspiration.
(heehee I was pleased with the carpet burns, I reckon Mitchell deserves them for getting poor George into such a state)
May. 11th, 2009 10:04 pm (UTC)
LOL! That was hot and fabulous! *beams*
May. 12th, 2009 11:37 am (UTC)
Yay! *beams back*
Thankyou for commenting!

::giggles:: carpet burns, I love it!
May. 13th, 2009 09:31 pm (UTC)
heheheh... a few carpet burns never go amiss :-)
Jul. 11th, 2009 12:05 am (UTC)
oh this is good if you ever feel like posting a sequel (another one technicly i guess) Please do :P
Jul. 20th, 2009 03:21 am (UTC)
Hey,thankyou for reading and commenting! There probably won´t be a sequel to this... in fact I won´t be writing anything at all for the next 2 months :-( But after that hopefully I will write some more!

You captured the humor of the situation very well. The dialogue was in character and witty. I also enjoyed the concept of George feeling out of control. It's usually Mitchell who is portrayed as a slave to his desires. Loved it.
Sep. 27th, 2009 08:27 pm (UTC)
That's brilliant - absolutely brilliant....
Sep. 28th, 2009 04:13 pm (UTC)
Aw thanks! Glad you liked it. *is happy* Love your icon btw!

With anyone else, angst might get irritating but with George, it's comical and squeaky and endearing. This really hits the spot too! Lovely and fluff ridden, and it's nice to see George in control too :D
G/M ♥ (and you too for writing this!)
Oct. 12th, 2009 07:23 pm (UTC)
Hey, thankyou! I like a bit (or a lot) of angst, but somehow George manages to subvert it...
Thankyou for reading :-)
Oct. 15th, 2009 06:24 pm (UTC)
so good
