--Blanket Forts and Builders--

Walking into Rodney's room like he always did, which is to say he didn't knock, John suddenly thought that from now on, he was going to knock.

Why? Because all he could see of Rodney was the scientists feet sticking out of a bunch of blankets.


"Hmm?" Rodney's inquisitive murmur barely breached the heavily enforced pile of blankets.

"What are you doing?" John tilted his head to the side curiously and walked around the fort.

"Working." Rodney's tone conveyed how stupid he thought John's question was.

Considering the fort from all angles, John finally found the entrance and knelt down to crawl inside. "Why the blanket fort?"

Rodney looked up from his tablet and smirked, "Because I can."

"Yeah huh. Okay." John furrowed his brow, "That doesn't sate my curiosity, you know that, yes?"

"Of course it doesn't." Rodney saved whatever he was working on and put the tablet to the side. "I was talking to Heightmeyer and she told me to give in to my urges."

"...You have urges to build blanket forts?" John blinked. He was very very confused right now.

"Occasionally. I wasn't allowed to build one when I was a kid and I always wanted to."

Hate for Rodney's parents flared in John and he stamped it down, "So you built one."


John paused and finally sighed. "You did it all wrong."

"How so?" Rodney rolled to his side and pulled his legs under himself, sitting up, "What do you mean by 'all wrong'?"

John shrugged, "A blanket fort is supposed to be built with chairs and at least one bed. Occasionally kids will pull the mattresses off the bed and then you have to gather all the blankets in the house and a blanket fort is never complete without a blanket door."

Expression falling, Rodney bowed his head. "Oh." He really had just wanted to have a blanket fort. Just one. That's all he needed. And now he'd made a mess of it.

John grabbed Rodney's hand and swept the blankets off of them, "Come on."

Being pulled towards his door, Rodney frowned, "What? Where? Why?"

"Who and when," John continued glibly and then shook his head, "No, see, we're going to my room, get my blankets, steal Carson's from his quarters and maybe, if you can get into Teyla's room, I bet she's got lots that we can commandeer for this."

"Wait, what are you talking about?" Rodney set himself and John jerked to a halt, trying to pull Rodney behind him. He let go of Rodney's hand and smiled.

"We're going to build you a proper blanket fort. That's what I'm talking about."

"Teyla will kill us."

"That's what you think." John smirked and crossed his arms, "All we gotta do is tell her that you missed a vital childhood stepping stone because of your bastard parents and voila! She'll be more then happy to lend us her blankets."

"Oh." Content with John's answer, Rodney followed him down the hall to the transporter. "You know," He mused, "That wasn't the only urge that I had."

"Yeah? What's the other one?"

Rodney stabbed at the controls, stopping the doors from automatically opening, "This." And he pulled John to him, settling their mouths together.

It was a sweet, chaste kiss and John leaned back gradually. "Oh."


"Good thing she told you to give in to your urges," And John kissed him back.

--The End--
