fic: Untranslated Matter

Title: Untranslated Matter
Fandom: Slings & Arrows
Length: 100
Rating: PG
Content notes: no warnings apply
Characters: Darren Nichols, Geoffrey Tennant
Author note: written for the Language challenge at [community profile] fan_flashworks; based on a brief exchange from s2ep03
Summary: Geoffrey’s irritation is always gratifying; that’s half the point for Darren of expressing himself in German. But only half.




“Wer nicht fortgeht kommt nicht heim,” Darren says. Who does not leave, does not come home.

“I beg your pardon,” says Geoffrey, clearly repressing the urge to say What the fuck.

Geoffrey’s irritation is always gratifying; that’s half the point for Darren of expressing himself in German. But only half. Of course the proverbial homecoming is purely metaphorical, a matter of self-discovery. Nevertheless, there’s a private satisfaction in asserting that this place is his home as well as Geoffrey’s. Not New Burbage, but the Theatre: an empty box for both of them to fill with fury and ecstasy and revolution.
