Title : Sticking Plasters
Author : [livejournal.com profile] mysteriousaliwz
Rating : PG 16
Fandom: Primeval
Pairing : Ryan/Stephen
Author Notes : More from the Sanctuary! verse (yes, already). Other fics in the series can be found here. Takes place the day after the events in First Bite. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] fredbassett for the beta - I have tweaked it around a bit since she cast her eyes over it, so any awkward bits are entirely my responsibility.
Word Count: 200 exactly.
Disclaimer: Primeval, Ryan and Stephen don't belong to me, sadly. Neither does the Hello Kitty trademark (I'm quoting it as a cultural reference *nods*.) Sanctuary, on the other hand, is dredged from the depths of my over-active imagination.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~


"When The Management said the vampire thing would wear off, they conveniently forgot to mention the bite marks wouldn't," grumbled Stephen. "Got any sticking plasters?"

"Try my tac vest, bound to be some in there," answered Ryan. "Get one for me as well, would you?"

The tac vest had proved to be an unending source of useful items. They'd found two pairs of chopsticks in one of its pockets the last time they'd ordered chinese.

Stephen had a rummage and triumphantly produced two plasters. His satisfaction was to be short-lived. On closer inspection he exclaimed, "They're taking the piss!"

Ryan's curiosity aroused, he leaned over for a closer look. He chuckled. One of the plasters was camouflage pattern, the other bore a 'Hello Kitty' logo.

"Obvious which one's yours," he sniggered.

"Oh yeah?"

"Well, I'm the soldier ..." Ryan moved closer, grinning, his lips brushing Stephen's ear, "whereas you make kitten noises during sex. RrrrrrRRRRrrr."

Stephen would have told him to sod off, but was too busy trying to stop his knees giving way. Ryan purring was undoubtedly the sexiest sound ever heard.

It would even be worth wearing the sodding plaster if it meant Ryan would do it again.

Brilliant! I *have* to stop reading your stories when I'm drinking anything, as a mouthful of drink always hits the laptop at speed! I love the ever-so-useful tac jacket. And the plasters made me howl!

*hands you paper towel*
Have you ever considered investing in a screen guard?

It's all Fred's fault. She had cotton buds in there in Dead Dinosaur is Not A Hair Care Product, so it all stemmed from there *g*

I've seen the army camouflage plasters in our local supermarket (and unicorn ones exist too apparently) although I haven't seen any Hello Kitty ones. But that logo turns up on everything, so I'm sure they exist somewhere. :)

I'd better put a disclaimer in about the trademark!

*Mops up sheepishly*

Ah, bound to be Fred's fault -- I think the no. 1 rule is if in doubt, blame her for anything!

Apparently Hello Kitty is a gay icon in Japan! I had a flashing one attached to my mobile before it rolled over and died on a train to Preston (the mobile that is, not the Hello Kitty!)

Thanks - it's something I'd like to hear as well. I'm sure it would have a similar effect on my knees *g*

That tac vest is becoming the Sanctuary version of 'katana space'!!! *old Highlander joke*

Hee! You know that Ryan's got to be particularly well-equipped.

Lovely! But couldn't he have pirate ones? I've seen tins of those knocking around. Bless!
And I'd give large parts of my anatomy to hear Ryan purr!
*sigh*

You've just put the mental image of Captain Jack Sparrow swaggering into Sanctuary demanding rum into my mind. After all he 'passed over to the other side' at one point as well ...

Any PotC writers out there who want to chase down that particular bunny? *g*

Mmmmmmmm... tasty. I just fouind this at work - what a lovely way to start the morning.

And purring Ryan definitely needs to turn up more often *grin*

(btw, what happened to that Nick and Connor sacntuary experiment fic you were talking about a while ago?)

I think purring Ryan would have a ruinous effect on the functioning of my knees as well :)

The plotbunnies are having to form an orderly queue, since I can't keep up with them all! I wanted to get the vampire one and the two sequels to it written first. (and yes, I said two sequels - second one is just a wee drabble, but mine own *g*)

The Nick/Connor experiment one is moving up the queue :)

Hee! Between vampire/bat, my kitten-purring and [livejournal.com profile] fredbassett's piglet-whiffling noises in her Ryan/Stephen series, he's practically a menagerie!

Thanks for commenting :)

Ryan purring - definitely something I enjoyed imagining :)

I'm so cruel to Stephen, poor lad! Never mind, it's Ryan's turn in the next one *eg*

Yup, same here - an outbreak of mass wibbling seems to be on the horizon when he does that :)

I'd be very happy to hear Ryan purr as well!! I was just discussing his bum with bigtitch and we voted it the most shaggable and biteable arse in the world!!! (as evidenced by the naked rear view shot of MW in Love Soup. *happy sigh*

It is indeed. Delightfully shapely and pert and, as you said, biteable.
*joins you in happy sigh*

The tac vest thing is all Fred's fault *nods* - see my earlier comment about 'Dead Dinosaur is Not A Hair Care Product' *g*

Ryan purring was fun to imagine ;)

HA!

Its strangely fitting isn't it.
totally cute.

[I'll bet Stephen secretly loves his 'Hello Kitty' plaster.]

I blame Stephen's kitty!hair.
(And [livejournal.com profile] fredbassett's Ryan/Stephen series for the kitten noises. Very inspirational *g*)

(I'll bet he does - espcially if it reminds him of Ryan purring ...)

*snrrrrrrrrrrrrrk*

"The tac vest had proved to be an unending source of useful items. They'd found two pairs of chopsticks in one of its pockets the last time they'd ordered chinese." << And major lulz to that.

Oh! And yes, I assure you, Hello Kitty bandaids (er, plasters) do exist. *g*

Hee! All those pockets have to be useful for something :)

I thought those might exist! I've been looking out for them ever since the idea popped into my head. It might be fun to see a packet of them to confirm that truth is stranger than fiction *g*

Lol yes!

I know we've got some over here (or had some, they might not sell them anymore). Now I've got an urge to hunt them down. xP

Ryan's bottomless tac vest pockets are an idea of genius :-) And Stephen making kitten noises when he has sex... awww!

Maybe Ryan was a boy scout - prepared for any eventuality :)

I actually found a tin of Hello Kitty sticking plasters at the last London Expo, so of course I had to buy them. Fic meets life *g*

1) I want a tac vest like that. :D

2) Stephen has purring kink! :D

It does sound rather useful!

Stephen is a kinky bugger. We're convinced of it *nods*.

I was delighted, after writing this fic, to find out that Hello Kitty plasters actually exist, so I was compelled to buy a tin of them when I spotted them :)

Ok, that's just awesome. I didn't know they actually existed!
