Summary: He's probably been asked stranger questions in his time, but not many. And not in bed.
A/N: Can be read as a standalone or as the cracky twin of Language Games (the International Talk Like A Pirate Day fic). Fill for the guns/blades square on my kink_bingo card. This one is for ginbitch, who requested John/Lestrade and who loves Doctor Who. Many thanks to kalypso_v for the beta.

“You don't have any big-game hunters in your DNA, do you?”

“Is this some Army slang I don't know about?” Lestrade says. “Six out of ten for effort, thanks for playing anyway?”

He's probably been asked stranger questions in his time, but not many. And not in bed. He'd thought the sex had been pretty good lately, but you can't always tell –

“No!” John says indignantly. “How can you even – no. Just no.”

That's all right, then.

“OK,” Lestrade says. “So, for those of us watching with the subtitles turned off, what are you on about?”

“Um,” John says, going slightly pink. “Er. Had a bit of a weird dream.”

“Oh yeah?” A kinky one, from the looks of it. “Tell me more,” Lestrade says, running a hand down John's naked back.

“Mm – ah,” John says, wriggling a bit. “Rory was in it.”

“Who's Rory – oh right. Mr January.” That cute male nurse John tried to make out he didn't fancy. One look at the Bart's charity calendar was enough – or rather, it wasn't. “Thought you said he was married.”

“He is,” John says uncomfortably. “His wife was in it too. Gorgeous redhead, looks like a model.”

“Bloody hell,” Lestrade grumbles, “I never get dreams like that.”

“Yeah, well, you were in this one,” John says. “Except it wasn't really you, because this bloke was a complete arse. Looked just like you, though – same grin and everything.”

“Nice to know you still fancy me even when I'm being an arse,” Lestrade says, grabbing a handful of John's delectable backside. “Where was all this?”

“In outer space,” John says with a groan. “There was this tall, skinny, funny-looking bloke talking nineteen to the dozen –”

“If you've started dreaming about Sherlock again, I think you ought to see a doctor,” Lestrade says. “Ow. Stop it, that tickles!”

He grabs John's wrists and pins him to the mattress. There's a bit of a scuffle that ends in a kiss, as usual. Lestrade can think of lots of worse ways to start the day than rolling around in bed with John Watson. Thinking of them distracts him, which means John ends up on top sooner than he would otherwise, but Lestrade's not complaining about that.

“It wasn't Sherlock,” John insists, when he's got his breath back. “He said he was a doctor.”

Lestrade's not even going to try to work out what that means.

“He had a bow tie,” John says.

“Oh well, then,” Lestrade says, grinning. “That settles it. So what was I doing in this dream of yours?”

“I told you,” John says, stroking his chest, “it wasn't you. God, the way he treated Amy and that other woman... the guy was a total dinosaur. Dressed up like Indiana Jones or something. Had a thing about guns, too.”

Lestrade's pretty sure he does know what that means.

“Honestly,” John says, shaking his head, “he kept going on about having a very large weapon.”

Lestrade snorts. “And did he?”

“Like an elephant gun,” John says. “He kept fondling the damn thing. I bloody nearly told him to get a room.”

“Are you trying to tell me you secretly wish my cock was bigger?” Lestrade teases him.

“Probably worrying that mine's too small,” John says, rolling his eyes.

“Get a lot of complaints about that, do you?” Lestrade asks, giving him a reassuring squeeze and finding he's half-hard again. Mmm.

“Strangely enough, no,” John says, thrusting up into Lestrade's fist. “Ahh.

“Is that an illegal British Army pistol in bed with us, or are you just pleased to see me?” Lestrade asks.

John's answer isn't in words, but it's entirely satisfactory.


Title from Bill Caddick's song, John O'Dreams.

Rory's participation in the (imaginary) Bart's charity calendar was inspired by Arthur Darvill's recent photoshoot for Gay Times.

I'm really not sure what John's dream means, but I wouldn't mind having one like that. Looks as if the important bits have come true!
Sep. 19th, 2012 10:16 pm (UTC)

thank you - I'm glad you liked it, even though it's not your favourite pairing! their banter is a lot of fun to write, especially when they're in bed... *grins*

nice icon!

I was really hoping someone would write a fic about "Dinosaur on a Spaceship" -- and this is even better than I'd hoped because you've managed to reference the episode in Sherlock terms and provide a nice crossover. The dialogue around John's dream is clever, humourous and utterly delightful, especially when it comes to the puns. And I think it's great that Rory's working at Bart's and appearing in its charity calendar, especially if it makes John fancy him just a little bit more. *g*

*grins* thank you very much - and of course your icon is SO TRUE.

I was stuck for ages trying to think of a fill for that kinkbingo square - but it was so obvious once I'd thought of it! and of course once I'd decided on a crossover there had to be Rory...

This has kept me up way past my bed time! I loved Sherlock and I love Dr Who and I really loved the Ep Dinosaurs on a Spaceship.

You had the tone so right that I could hear the entire dialogue in my head. That is great and I loved the way that you got all the characters in (evn if John couldn't remember Neffi's name!)

I loved the way that you got the innuendo of the ep in to your story without it sounding wrong or out of place and the addtional puns were just so right to! I loved it so much.

I also expect that Amy would have made him do the calander. (I have just looked at some the shots from Arthur Darvill's photoshoot for Gay Times and I can see why they were an inspiration! He is gorgeous! :D)

Thank you for a wonderful story that is so full of SQUEEEE that is it a TOTALLY EPIC WIN!
Oct. 20th, 2012 12:11 am (UTC)
thank you very much - I'm very pleased you liked all those things, and that you felt the tone was right. *beams* I hadn't thought of Amy making Rory do the calendar but that's a nice idea.
