Bedrest (Jack/Sawyer) PG

Title: Bedrest
Pairing: Jack/Sawyer
Summary: "These your boxers, doc?"
Spoilers: Up through "What Kate Did"
Note: Yet more J/S Hatch!fic. Except this one is quite silly and short. Written for alliecat8's birthday. ;-D Claiming as a "Writer's Choice" for fanfic100




“There’s something I still don’t understand.”

Sawyer leaned back in the bunk bed, good arm tucked behind his head. Doctor’s orders, one more day of bedrest. All his very good reasons why he should be up and laying in the sun instead of confined to this damn bunk fell on deaf ears. The doc was one tough sonofabitch.

“What’s that?” Jack sounded tired. He probably hadn’t gotten a lot of sleep these last few days -- what else was new? -- but the tone in his voice now was that of a weary parent who’s been asked “Why?” about 20 times in a row.

He’d patiently explained about the hatch and the button and Desmond and how there could be light in the hatch and a blender and music and everything. And then he'd answered all of Sawyer’s subsequent questions: was this book in the library, did they have that Johnny Cash record, and why were the potato chips all gone?

“What don’t you understand?”

“Well, I’d like to know how I came by these boxers.”

Jack’s head jerked up. “What?”

“C’mon, doc. I didn’t dress myself. Someone decided I couldn’t just lay here buck naked. Was that you? Cover my shame and all?” He said it with a grin and he took delight in seeing Jack’s face flush. The doc dropped his head, the way he did when he tried not to laugh. Funny he knew that about him, since he laughed, really laughed so rarely.

“Well yeah, we had to get rid of your old clothes. They were filthy.” He had stopped laughing, but his mouth was still fighting back a smile.

“OK, so whose underwear do I have the pleasure of wearing? Yours? ‘Cause you know it ain’t my habit to let anything come between me and my jeans. ”

The smile was winning the battle on Jack’s face. “Oh, we all knew that, Sawyer.”

“Oho. That a popular topic in my absence?”

“Right. We had nothing else at all going on here while you were gone. Not a thing. So we just sat and discussed your aversion to underwear.”

“Why, doc. You made a joke. Careful now. You’re gonna ruin your reputation for being Mr. Intensity.” Jack’s grin grew wider at that. Making the doc smile was actually pretty damn entertaining. “But you didn’t answer me. These your boxers, doc?”

“What difference would it make, Sawyer? They’re clean. Really. Did I mention the washer and dryer?”

“Yeah, you did. About five times. Well, for one thing, they’re kinda big on me, doc. They keep slippin’ off.” He dropped his voice and looked around as if to make sure no one else could hear him. “And for another...”

“Yes?” Jack was leaning forward now, trying to catch what he was about to say next.

“Never thought it would be that easy to get in your pants.”

Jack’s eyebrows shot up in surprise but he just kept smiling that mysterious smile, only this time with the barest hint of smugness.

“What you don’t know, Sawyer, could fill a book.” And with that, he got up and shoved the chair back and eased himself onto the bed.

“Well, fancy that.” Sawyer settled back with a grin. This whole bedrest thing was definitely looking up.

MWAH! Now this is the stuff to read at 12:30 when sleep just ain't coming *bouncebounce* Just the idea of Jack touching Sawyer anywhere below the waist immediately makes me happy ... and it looks like Jack' bedside manner is improving =D =D

This whole bedrest thing was definitely looking up.

And all was right with the world *grins*

Thanks! One of those wispy little plot bunnies I wasn't sure I could build a whole fic around. But short is good for a change, LOL! And in my mind, those are *totally* Jack's boxers. ;-D

Damnnnnn....nice!

This just hit all the perfect spots for me. Humor and all kinds of delicious thoughts of Jack's bedside manner all warm and cozy with Sawyer. Yum.

“Why doc. You made a joke. Careful now. You’re gonna ruin your reputation for being Mr. Intensity.” Perfect Sawyer here... sounds so much like him.

And this:

“Never thought it would be that easy to get in your pants.”

Bwahhhaaahhhhh!!! What a fantastic, snappy one-liner... God that was a good line. Loved this fic!

Thanks! I loved that scene between them on the show when Sawyer's still out and Jack is joking to him about taking the bullet out with his bare hands and seems very impressed and just so caring. YUM! I can't wait to see what kind of conversations they have now that Sawyer's up. Damn you, hiatus!

Glad you liked the one-liner! ;-D

“Never thought it would be that easy to get in your pants.” HA! I like that, very clever there.

I love when Sawyer and Jake joke around, and you make it so believable. Which I think is hard to do with Jack. He's a very tricky character to write, so kudos! And thanks for the ficlet.

Hee, well lucky for us, Sawyer is interested in more than potato chips after all. (At least, in our lovely imaginations.)

Thank you so much for the kind words! ;-D

A WHOLE FIC ABOUT THOSE BOXER SHORTS, it's not even my birthday and it's like one bright and shiney present for me.

YOU KNOW I LOVED THOSE BOXERS and I still don't know how they got on him, BUT DAMN I LOVE YOUR EXPLANATION.

SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU WRITE ABOUT THOSE BOXER SHORTS, MY CAPS LOCK STICKS!!!!

Dec. 6th, 2005 05:32 pm (UTC)
;-D Yay! Cap lock! Awww. Hee. I felt like someone needed to explain them since we all know Sawyer goes commando. And there was a pic somene posted of Jack a while back where they zeroed in on his Calvin Kleins peeking through under his shirt so -- voila! Boxer fic!

Thanks for the fb! ;-D

Did you hear me? Did you hear me squee? I know you did, all the way in CA. Oh, what more perfect birthday present could I ever ask for? (I've been a little bit obsessed with those boxers for days, just so you know. ;) )

but the tone in his voice now was that of a weary parent who’s been asked “Why?” about 20 times in a row...was this book in the library, did they have that Johnny Cash record, and why were the potato chips all gone?

HA! Oh, I just love it so much! Hee, I can just see that perfectly. Sawyer regressing to a pesky little kid and driving Jack crazy...and then making up for it by turning the conversation to more, ahem, grown-up matters. And yes, Jack, it is perfectly okay to be that easy under the circumstances. ;) I ♥ you so much for writing this. I can't wipe the smile off my face. {{{{{halfdutch}}}}}
