Controlled Love, Part 1: Control

Title: Control
Series: Controlled Love, Part 1. Series links here.
Fandom: A Bit of Fry & Laurie
Pairing: Tony/Control

Summary: Control isn't easy.
Disclaimer: No ownership claimed, just oodles of love for these characters.
Note: A Tony Murchison drabble popped into my head and demanded to be committed to pixels.

Control

Control was the most vexing part of Tony’s life. Every morning he took his boss a nice cup of coffee, and they would have the loveliest chats. He’d never met anyone more civil than his chief, and their time together was precious to him.

Control did not come easily to Tony. He longed to let his fingers tarry on the saucer as he handed it over. It took all his willpower not to brush away that lock of unruly dark hair as it wisped over his companion’s forehead.

He hated that he had to have such control. He wanted Control.

Very clever, I like the tricksy way you used control through it. Makes me look forward to the day when Tony snaps and just goes for it. *g*

Mmmm...Tony just goes for it...a liplock while he's got Control pinned to the desk. Or against the wall, better yet. I can see it now...

*wanders to very happy place*

Heh. ;)

Aww, sweet. I particularly like this line:

He’d never met anyone more civil than his chief

Hahaha! Only Tony (okay, and possibly Control) would consider 'civility' to be the most attractive quality in a mate. Hee!

Well I have a soft spot for stilted, polite love, so of course I liked this. Poor Tony!

Tony suffers, there's no two ways about it. One of these days he might have to throw politeness to the wind and take what he wants. heh.

Aww this is very cute! I do believe one of them will crack and give into passion before long - much to our delight! Yes! :-P

Bound to happen! All that pent-up emotion has to come out sooner or later. ;)

Oooh, shiny. Clever and adorable.

With all of these comments on how one of them's going to snap, I might just have to demand a sequel where one of them does. ;)

Heh. You are a lil ol' bunny feeder, aren' you? ;)

So...who should snap: Tony or Control?

Sweet. :)

Tony daydreams about Control. In his daydreams Control says that he likes Tony.

"I like you very much, Tony. In fact, I think you should come sit on my desk, here."

Tony realizes that the two sentences don't seem to fit together, but in his daydream that's okay. It's quite right that Control politely wraps his arms around Tony's shoulders and kisses him.

Then Tony realizes he's burnt his dinner, and he needs to leave this daydream.

The daydream burned deep into Tony's thoughts. So deep, that when he slept that night, the dream continued.

He felt the solidness of Control's desk under his bum and the warmth of Control's arms around his shoulders. The lips that brushed against his were soft and moist, and the tongue that suddenly traced his mouth was startling and exciting.

He could feel his heartbeat begin to race, as though he was telling a fib while attached to a lie detector. But this was truth: the only place in the whole world he wanted to be was wrapped in Control's arms.

I've just watched my first Tony and Control sketches and they're so hilarious! I didn't want to read your drabble series until I'd seen the sketches. Now that I have, I can. hehe. Lovely stuff!
