title: If I'm Crazy, I'm Crazy For You
fandom: Bones
pairing: Hodgins/Wendell
rating: PG
words: ~550
notes: Title from Adele's Crazy for You. Other than that... well. I've had these two in my head for days, because a) they pretty much define adorable, and b) I've been lurking a lot at [livejournal.com profile] wendellhodgins (which is where bits of the assumed canon in this come from, which should definitely be mentioned. yay fellow shippers! \o/). And then some other things happened, and now there's this.

Wendell can feel the tips of his ears burning, which means his whole face is already flushed with embarrassment (he blushes too easily to not have learnt the signs by now). He finds himself contemplating the best method of revenge on Angela.

'It makes sense, actually,' Sweets is saying, 'coming from a background like yours. As adults, we tend to place a high value on things that, as children, we craved, or learnt to appreciate for their rarity.'

'I think it's sweet,' Angela says, smiling, and Wendell's now considering it the greatest tragedy of his life that she's not easily embarrassed, because Jack probably has a lot of dirt on her, or at the very least Wendell himself could probably charm something out of Roxie. Which wouldn't be awkward. He thinks. Or doesn't think. Whichever. Maybe.

He's distracted by Booth's grin. 'Aww, I agree, Angela. It is sweet.'

Wendell narrows his eyes in Booth's direction. Booth's grin widens.

'You know,' Brennan cuts in, 'in some cultures, it's actually a sign of appreciation and respect for whomever cooked the meal. It's a great insult if you don't.'

Wendell sighs. He looks at Cam, waiting for her contribution to the conversation, because clearly everyone else reserves the right to provide input regarding his personal life, but she just bursts out laughing as soon as they make eye contact. 'I'm not – it's not at –' she manages to get out between breaths.

'Can we just – can we not mention this to Hodgins? Please?' Wendell pleads.

Brennan shrugs, Sweets nods, and Angela says, 'Of course, sweetie!' Cam's still laughing, but manages to get out a, 'Cross my heart', around the same time Booth chimes in with, 'Secret's safe with me!'


'So,' Hodgins begins a few nights later, when the game they're watching on television has taken a commercial break. 'I heard an interesting rumour at work today.'

'Oh god,' Wendell groans, sinking down a bit further into the cushion and covering his eyes with the hand that's not already entwined with one of Jack's. 'Does the concept of a secret mean nothing anymore?'

Hodgins laughs, lifting Wendell's hand and pressing a kiss to it. 'I really just have one question.'

'Yeah?' Wendell says, turning his head and spreading his fingers so that he can look at Jack with one eye. 'What's that?'

'Since you first knew you loved me when you found out I don't slurp when I eat soup, does it mean you won't love me anymore if my table manners suddenly take a turn for the worse?'

Jack's slightly furrowed brow and worried tone belie the teasing sparkle in his eyes, and Wendell tries as hard as he can to glare at him, even going so far as to remove the hand covering his eyes.

'Asshole,' he mutters, with only a tiny spark of conviction.

'Well yeah,' Hodgins agrees, amiably, bringing his free hand up to pull Wendell's face toward his. 'But an asshole who loves you.'

Wendell laughs slightly, tries to look everywhere at once, and finally manages to do what he actually wants to, which is press his lips to Jack's. He pulls away after a few moments to add, 'And an asshole whom I love', not because Hodgins doesn't already know that, but just because Wendell really likes saying it.

'Well,' Hodgins murmurs, as he reclaims Wendell's lips. 'Yeah.'

Awww, now that was just precious :)

'But an asshole who loves you.'

Gotta love his manly way of expressing his feelings! But oh I really liked this :D Fluffy things like this just make my heart melt, bit by bit.

(P.S As I was reading this, for some reason I just couldn't stop thinking about Ianto and Jack from Torchwood. Coincidence?)

...now I'm trying to fit the other Bones characters into Torchwood roles...thanks. O.o

And now I'm really starting to wonder what would happen if you put Booth & Jack in the same room. Or Owen & Brennan. Ahaha. Man, that would be epic.

Jack and Booth would just have entertaining conversations...and Jack would come onto Booth and I'm not so sure Booth would say no.

Brennan would kill Owen.

Cam, Angela, and Tosh would have a hella good time.

Booth would be annoyed because he finally found someone more cocky and more charming than himself.

Brennan can't kill Owen, he's already dead! But she'd probably spent her whole time there trying to prove that fact wrong.

I can so imagine Gwen visiting Zack in the mental ward and being overly friendly and him being all uncomfortable like "Get me out of here..."

...Dammit, now I'm going to be thinking about this all day.

And Jack would be jealous of the cocky belt buckle.

Okay, if Owen were alive Brennan would kill him, if we're going during S2 she'd be trying to prove that he wasn't dead/undead...

And Zack and Gwen would be hilarious!

And Andy would be like "Can I work for the FBI?" and Rhys would be all "Gwen, honey, c'mon..."

Someone should write this...

I will if you do!

Aww, Andy would be so adorable. He just doesn't fit in anywhere!

I can so imagine Ianto pointing out things they've missed on the bones (not Brennan's bones, obviously) and accidentally solving their cases for them. All-knowing genius that he is.

Haha...like, cowrite?

Andy is adorable and needs infinitely more love Rhys/Andy FTW *cough*...

Booth and Brennan would be trying to solve a case in Cardiff and they'd run into Torchwood 'cause Aliens would be involved Jack would be like "Take Ianto, he knows everything."

From: [identity profile] jerbearthompson.livejournal.com
Rhys/Andy FTW indeed! I'm a big Rhys fan, I'll pair him up with basically anyone but Gwen or Jack :p

"Take Ianto, he knows everything." - possibly the best line ever written.

We could cowrite if you wanted to, mind I've never done that before so I'd have no idea how to. I am rather excited about a crossover though :D

I adore Rhys. I don't mind writing him with Gwen simply because he does love her so much.

I've never done it before, either. It can be a learning experience! :)

I don't think he gets nearly enough credit as he should. Hopefully we'll be seeing more of him in S3 though. :)

Maybe we should carry on with this conversation on... msn, or perhaps start a discussion on one of our journals rather than clogging up [livejournal.com profile] builtofsorrow's comment space!

Haha, don't worry; I have been squeeing over it. PLEASE WRITE THIS OR I MIGHT DIE.

Or, you know, something less dramatic. :D

But seriously. And you know Hodgins is going to spend a huge amount of time going, 'I TOLD YOU SO GUYS', and Wendell will have to keep everyone from resorting to violence to shut him up.

It's going to be EPIC! :D

Hodgins would probably latch onto Ianto because he's got about the equivilent knowledge of Zack and Hodgins just likes to be in duos like that. He'll take credit for half of what Ianto says.

And ah, yes! Wendell the peace maker. He'd probably tag after Jack for a bit before Hodgins realised he was gone and dragged him into the "team" he's made with Ianto. (That Ianto probably doesn't even know about)

...or perhaps I'm just rambling.

Date: 2009-02-14 05:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] eviinsanemonkey.livejournal.com
Haha! Hodgins/Wendell/Ianto? ;)

I'll message you my E-Mail, if that's cool?

Date: 2009-02-14 05:50 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] jerbearthompson.livejournal.com
That would be excellent.

Knowing Ianto, he'd probably get dragged into it just thinking they were being friendly. :p Then Jack would get all jealous.

-grins- Thank you!

(Hee. No, probably not coincidence. They're way too much my OTP for them to not have some influence over how I write, I'm guessing.)

It's just the sort of banter I would usually write tehm having. Damn you Torchwood, taking over our lives!

Either way, it was still a brilliant fic.

Fluffy and sweet and just...makes me want to cuddle up with the boys some more.

Thanks so much for sharing, it was a very nice way to start my afternoon.

Agh, I have been very Not About on the internet the past couple of days, but thank you for reading! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)
