That was... engaging! ;) A nice, unexpectedly physical moment between captain and XO, ruined by two of the most dependable forces in the universe, gravity and Spock.
Author's Response: Thanks! Just playing around with a snippet for fun, to entertain my friends... I'm having a lot of fun with filling in the gaps in Pike and Number One between 2254 and 2265, in the Prime universe, at the same time I'm mapping out their AOS counterparts futures... Very different relationship beats, but deep down, they're the same people, so it's been a blast.

Um, I'll be in Holodeck 4 .... (/pervyRiker)
Just kidding. But seriously, nice tension between those two characters. I think I was as disappointed as they were when the communicator went off.
Author's Response: yeah--this was pretty much done on a dare, becasue I'd joked to friends on my livejournal that instead of hot steamy fantasies, lately I've just been craving a backrub like whoa... And once we got to discussing it, I suppose it was a foregone conclusion I'd end up writing it for tone of the prompts on the Pike/number One community. That's my default, currently. But I promise--there will be the sexy funtimes in their future!

Not very knowledgeable about the Pike/No.1 era but I do like your style of writing. It was striking and it worked well to tell the tale here. Nice interaction between your characters and the cat and mouse realtionship between the two.
Author's Response: I've got a much longer piece I'm working on, set after [i]Vulcan's Glory[/i] and [i]The Cage[/i], and this was just a bit of fluff that feeds into the eventual (explosive) payoff in that piece. It's for the trek novel fest challenge, and I'm hoping to post it before the deadline... but the more I write these two (in both AOS and TOS universes) the more I fall completely in love with them and their dynamic--both professionally and personally.
