Publication


The team was celebrating Charlie’s most recent publication. This normally wouldn’t happen since Charlie published something at least every six moths, but this time there were extra contributors to the paper --One Agent Megan Reeves and one Agent Colby Granger. The article had taken target selection theories of spree killers and added variables for military training and possible PTS. Don had read the article and, as usual, only recognized every third word, but that did not stop him from ordering everyone down to the local bar for a celebration.

Don raised a glass to his team. “To geekness. Now officially declared contagious by the C.D.C.” Megan and Colby tossed wadded up bar napkins at their boss. “Seriously. When FBI agents get written up in anything, there’s usually a body count involved and sensationalist headlines, but you two are the first to be published in the ‘International Journal of Advanced Number Theory’ and for that I have nothing but pride.”

Everyone raised their glasses then tossed back their drinks.

Larry gave Megan a kiss. “I’m very proud of you, darling,” he said, giving her a squeeze.

Colby looked at David.

“I ain’t kissing you,” David declared.

To Colby’s surprise he felt a pair of lips on his cheek.

“I’m very proud of you, darling,” Charlie slurred out drunkenly before slipping off his chair. “Where’d the table go?” he asked in honest confusion. It was several minutes before everyone stopped laughing enough to help him up.

Oh... *snort*

I'm laughing so loud that my sides are aching. So cute, so funny... *giggle*

(since I'm fairly new in the fandom (but have caught up with everything! I overdosed myself with season 1 and 2 in a month or so... and... am up to speed, really!) I'm trying to read as many fics as possible... thought your 'verse would be next on the list;))
ladygray99ladygray99 on February 12th, 2008 10:19 pm (UTC)
:-) Well there's still plenty to go. Glad I could give you a laugh. Welcome to the fun.

Thank you. I'd forgotten about this part. It's been a while.

I love what David says to him about the kiss, it would so happen in an episode ^^

But I also like Charlie at the end, we don't get to see him drunk, like never :)
ladygray99ladygray99 on January 17th, 2010 02:18 pm (UTC)
I think drunk Charlie is something the world needs more of.
emmatheancienemmatheancien on January 18th, 2010 10:15 pm (UTC)
I'm 200 % with you ^^

Okay, so here's the thing. I read WAY too much fanfiction. Too, too much. And I have done for years now. I say this because you should understand what it means when I say this drabble is in my top ten favorite fics. :) It makes me giggle...every time.
ladygray99ladygray99 on July 29th, 2012 02:49 pm (UTC)
:-) Thank you. I read a bit too much fan fic myself so I am always pleased to hear when I make anyone's top anything list.
