Pairing: Radek/Rodney

Summary: It was way past time to pull the brakes on this thing of theirs, whatever it was.

Author notes: Written as part of Halloween fangirl weekend with [livejournal.com profile] pushkin666 and [livejournal.com profile] dreamersdare. We all wrote to same fandom (Stargate) and prompt (brake, except they heard it as break lol).



Radek woke up to the all too familiar hiss of the door closing behind Rodney. With a sigh he opened his eyes only long enough to confirm what he already knew before closing them again and turning around to face the wall rather than his empty quarters. The bed was still warm from Rodney’s body and his scent lingered in the sheets, reminders of how the night had started. How almost every night over the last few months had started.

The problem was that they had all ended like this too: Radek alone, swallowing around the bitter lump of regret and loneliness that seemed to have taken permanent residence in his chest. He burrowed deeper under the covers, wrapping arms around himself. It was way past time to pull the brakes on this thing of theirs, whatever it was. He’d do it today.

Or maybe tomorrow.

Oh no! Hope they work it out! A lovely little ficlet, so poignant. Really enjoyed it.

Me too! One of my favourite SGA pairings. Geeks in love! Or, geeks failing at communicating about being in love...

No... Radek you don't want to end it no matter how much Rodney might just leave you in the cold of your room. You can get him to come around. Seriously hun this is so good for so few words.

Too few words is at the heart of this I think. Geeks failing to communicate about feelings :D I think Radek pulling the brakes is just the thing to jolt Rodney into realising what he's doing. Or not doing.

Yeah it would definitely jolt Rodney into realising what he's doing.
