Title: Spoonfed
Setting: FFX
Theme + Number: Sweet Tooth, #14
Pairing/Character/Friendship: Auron/Lulu
Rating: R
Warnings: Sorry, I keep veiling the nookie.
Summary: Water, chocolate, what else can we put on Auron?

The skin of the airship purred beneath them. Auron gazed stonily towards the clouds ahead, lost in thought, probably pondering Jecht's next move. His loose sleeve flapped in the wind, and the beads of Lulu's braids clinked lightly against the deck behind them.

"Back to the gorge, then?" Lulu sighed.

Silence. She liked his silences, but sometimes... well.

The mage dipped her spoon in the cup she was holding, scooped up a mud-colored dollop of something that sparkled in the late afternoon sun, twisted towards him and dabbed a blob of it on the older Guardian's nose. That got his attention in a hurry. He wiped it off and flung it away.

"No!" she said, laughing and leaning sideways to lick his nose clean, causing him to wrinkle his face in a comical scowl. "It's too good to waste, Auron."

"Yes, the gorge. I want another look at that sword." He grimaced at her. "What is that stuff?"

She scooped up another spoonful and held it tantalizingly before his nose -- a little lower, this time, so he could smell it. "More Al Bhed heresy, according to Wakka. You'd probably like it. I'm sure it's against Yevon's teachings. Rin asked me if I thought it would sell."

As if testing for poison, Auron stooped and licked the spoon cautiously. He gave her a puzzled but not displeased glance. "It's sweet."

"And dark." She helped herself to the bottom of the iced chocolate, licking her lips.

"But too cold." He unceremoniously seized the remainder and began painting the hollows of her throat and collarbones. Lulu clamped her teeth together to keep from letting out a less than dignified yelp. The swordsman gave her a toothy smile. "This should help." He wrapped his gloved hand in her braids and held her steady, but by the time he finished they had long forgotten Rin's question.

It makes me laugh that Rin is thinking of expanding into ice cream. I can just picture him setting up a chain of ice cream stores around Spira.

I like the way that Lulu painted Auron's nose out of frustration with his silence.

I enjoy the way that Wakka thinks that iced chocolate is clearly evil.

You described the play between Auron and Lulu in the last part so well I could see it. Very sweet. It is interesting and different to see the two of them being so playful.

*giggle* This is lovely. I like how Auron's all business and then play. It works very well.

By the bye, I (belatedly) took your suggestion and tracked down the Resurrection fics. I have this to say overall: OMG. Wow. *brainmelt* Please please, pretty please, write more? :)

(also random: may I friend?)

Always business first, with him -- with both of them, really, they're such alarmingly professional Guardians that I have trouble justifying their letting their guard down even in private.

Friend away. :)

Thank you very much for ego-stroke writer encouragement! I'm writing more-- I've got a lovely epilogue written for that story that takes place after FFX is over, so I'd better keep going-- but it may be a week-plus before my muse and time allow it. I'm coming up on a mess of schoolwork and I need to consult with my beta trekqueen to help me figure out what I think I'm doing. :)

Ah yes, betas. It is for this reason I worship celeloriel. She always finds the things I never thought of and makes everything so much better.

LOL!! That's hilarious!! My sister smeared chocolate ice cream all over my face once. I got pretty mad. But now that I think about it, it was pretty funny. Especially when I pushed her in the pool for it!! Auronlu, you need to write a fanfic of Auron's fight with Lady Yunalesca after Jecht and Braska die. I know she practically kills him, but I don't know what happened during the fight other than the fact that Auron tried to kill Lady Yunalesca. Who would've thought that Lulu would be this playful with a guy that's at least 13 years older than she is. I mean she's only 22 and he's like 35. Auronlu thinks of stories that I never would've thought of. Now when I play FFX I always keep Lulu and Auron out at the same time unless it's necesary to switch one of them out. Anyway great fic!
