Title: State Dinners and Other Diplomatic Disasters
Relationship: Jack/Sky
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: I think by now we all know that I don't own them.
Prompt: #17-Public Dining
Summary: "My way was more fun,"
Note: In an earlier story I implied that Sky had proposed to Jack. In a WIP I also reference the proposal, so what's a girl to do but write the darn thing! I've reworked it a couple times and while I don't love it I am content.

State Dinners and Other Diplomatic Disasters

“That woman was hitting on you all through dinner. I just thought I’d do us all a favor and let her know that you’re off-limits,” Jack said in his version of a sensible tone.

Sky rolled his eyes. Jack wondered idly if one day he was going to annoy the other man so much that his eyes would literally roll out of his head. Probably not today he decided. He was justifiably annoying today.

That woman was the daughter of the Ambassador from Auitbean,” Sky explained again. “Cruger and I have been trying to get him to agree to let us set up a base there. Your little stunt might have cost us months of work.”

“It didn’t,” Jack retorted defensively. “Your precious treaty is fine.” He folded his arms across his chest. “You get your base. I get you, sounds fair to me.”

Sky sighed heavily, but he wasn’t really mad. He knew from personal experience that he didn’t handle his own jealousy very well. Relenting he admitted, “She was being a little forceful.”

“A little? Bend over. I think you might have the shape of her hand branded on your ass.” Sky let out a little laugh, but Jack was just warming up to the fight. “And I didn’t see you putting a stop to it. Is SPD whoring its rangers for treaties now?”

Sky flinched at the venom in Jack’s voice. He’d assumed Jack was being a drama queen. But his tone said something different. “Sorry. I was trying to let her down. I wanted to do it diplomatically.”

He had been maneuvering them toward Jack, so that he could introduce his boyfriend, when the music had started. The Ambassador’s daughter, Che’la, had attempted to get him onto the floor before Jack had taken matters into his own hands – literally. Sky was sure some of those dance moves were illegal on 12 planets and two major metropolises.

“My way was more fun,” Jack said, letting go of his hurt feelings and grinning at the memory. It wasn’t everyday that you got seduce your boyfriend on the dance floor of a high-society event. Of course, it was probably unnecessary to growl threateningly at the poor girl when Che’la came over to say goodnight at the end of the evening but…

“True. But your way could also have caused an interstellar incident. Next time why don’t I just wear my “I belong to Jack” T-Shirt?” Sky teased gently. “Then there’ll be no problems.”

Jack looked momentarily abashed, but then his mischievous smirk was back in place. “You could do something more subtle - maybe a hat.”

“Forehead tattoo,” Sky countered.

“Matching ID bracelets?”

Sky met his eyes challengingly and said, “How about matching rings?”

Sky watched in nervous amusement as laughter turned to understanding turned to joy on Jack’s face. The other man fought to play it cool, but the effect was ruined by the huge grin on his face.

“Sky, was that a proposal?” Jack’s voice was torn between awe and disbelief.

“Maybe,” Sky answered with feigned nonchalance. “In the name of interstellar peace of course.”

“Of course,” Jack agreed. “You’re a paragon of self-sacrifice.”

“Paragon? You’ve been using that word-a-day calendar Kat gave you.”

“Sky, get your tight-ass over here and kiss me already.”

“Is that a yes? You should really tone down the romance before I start to expect candlelit dinners and roses everyday.”

Jack attempted to roll his own eyes out of his head and demanded, “Now, Sky!”

“Engaged five seconds and I’m already being hen-pecked.”

Jack ignored that and sidled up to Sky. He moved so they were chest to chest, but not quite touching and asked, “So…makeup sex?”

Sky smirked and leaned down so their lips were an inch apart. “No need, you’re already forgiven.”

Jack stretched up a little. “Newly engaged sex?”

Sky tipped closer, and Jack could feel his lips move as he answered, “You never want to just cuddle anymore.”

Jack threw his head back with laughter, but the sound died in his throat as Sky’s mouth found that spot just below his ear that made him whimper helplessly. He was breathless when he reminded, “I thought you wanted to cuddle.”

“I do. Take of your clothes and you can cuddle me all you want.”

For once in his life, Jack did as he was told.

Woot, HDTV! What kind? What kind of receiver? Cable, satellite?? *pant* Can you tell I'm a TV junkie?

Know what you mean - I watch more TV recorded by DVR or downloaded or on DVD than live. (Except Law and Order, for some reason whenever I want something to just stare at I look for L&O. Reruns from some incarnation of the show are on virtually 24/7 on some cable channel or another.)

Stressful. :) But starting to calm down now, hopefully. *crosses fingers*

And yeah, I guess I have been pretty quiet, at least in the PR fandom. My PR inspiration has vanished on me (probably sunning itself on a beach in Hawaii or something) but my sentai inspiration has kind of taken over, so I'm pretty active in that fandom at the moment. I'll probably swign back round to PR sooner or later, though. I can't abandon my boys for long. :)

*nods* I guess I kind of had it coming, seeing as I spent the best part of 18 months writing nothing but PR. *shrugs*

And hey, take your time. The stories aren't going anywhere. :)

Squee! This is so cute, and totally how Sky would do it.
Lol, his 'I belong to Jack' T-shirt? - and why, might I ask, wasn't he wearing it to begin with?
Any chance of a prequel?
