Summary: Ronon sees Rodney doing something different.
It was a typical day in Atlantis, well one that didn't have to do
with potential death just lingering around the corner for the city or
one of its inhabitants. It was also typical to see Dr. Rodney McKay
bustling his way down one of the many halls, sometimes talking a mile
a minute over his radio or yelling at or about his minions, be they
present in the hall or not. This time however, Ronon saw McKay doing
something that didn't make sense as the man was heading his way; his
mouth was moving in an odd manner but he wasn't talking, which in of
itself was odd.
Ronon needed to know what was different so stepped into McKay's path,
essentially blocking his way. When Rodney stepped right, he shifted
right. If Rodney went left, he shifted left; eventually he knew the
human would get it.
"What?" McKay demanded. "What do you want you over grown Pit-bull,
I'm a busy man and you're interfering with what could mean the fate
of the universe by your childish games!"
"You're headed to the mess hall," Ronon said, folding his arms, an
act of intimidation that had many folks in the city running in the
other direction. Teyla and John may not be affected by the move, but
McKay was, yet he would fold his own arms and lift his chin and bark
right back at him; it was amusing.
"Well, yes, yes, what if I am. I'm entitled to eat, something I'm
sure you understand, you walking stomach. I'm hungry and if I don't
get something to eat, you know my blood sugar will drop and then I'll
fall into hypoglycemic coma "
"You ate breakfast," Ronon said, for it was true, he was there. If
anyone could pack it away almost as much as he could it was McKay.
"So! I burn a lot of calories with my genius brain, something YOU
will never understand, so either get out of my way or tell me what
the hell you want?" McKay demanded.
"What were you doing with your mouth?" Ronon asked.
"What?" McKay asked, not understanding the big oaf was asking. "What
you mean, what was I doing with my mouth I'm talking, that's what I'm
doing with it. Do you understand the .words that are coming out?" he
asked very slowly at the end.
Ronon had to suppress the urge to snicker for McKay always made him
want to laugh, for the man could be very funny, whether he knew it or
not. "I meant before I just stopped you. Like right now," he said,
pointing to McKay as his jaw shifted up and down then side to side,
and then he saw a pink substance start to exit from McKay's lips. He
instinctively took a step back, ready to attack or evade should McKay
has been overtaken by some alien and was attempting to use a
biological weapon on him. Then the pink substance only got so big
before exploding and was drawn back into McKay's mouth. "What was
that?" Ronon demanded.
"Wait, you've been here how long, and you've never seen anyone
chewing gum?" McKay replied with disbelief. "Or to be more precise
bubblegum or should I say Sugar free because though I need sugar for
it to come in the form of gum can actually be bad for my teeth "
"McKay," Ronon said, wanting the man to get back on track and
"Oh, well. (1) Bubble gum is a type of chewing gum that is especially
designed for blowing bubbles. It is usually pink in color and has a
particular flavor. It was accidentally in 1928 by Walter Diemer, who
was working in a chewing gum factory somewhere in Philadelphia that's
a city on earth," Rodney started to explain, but stopped at seeing
Ronon arch his brow, indicating he didn't want to hear the history.
"Um, well, simply put, bubblegum is made from a (2) gum base with
some form of powdered sugar or a sugar substitute, then a form of
corn syrup or again some type of substitute and some glycerin along
with some citric acid, not the kind you find in death fruit like
oranges and lemons thank God or I'd be dead by now, which is why I'm
picky on what flavors I get. Oh, yeah, flavoring is the last
ingredient, plus a ton of preservatives and what not, depending on
what kind of gum you get ."
"What are you doing with it?" Ronon asked.
"Well, I think I made it clear, it's for chewing " Rodney sighed in
frustration and hunger. "It's a flavored chewing stick which I can
make bubbles, see" he said then demonstrated. "When I'm done with it,
I throw it away as it's not a food. Does that satisfy your
Neanderthal brain of yours? Can I go get real food now?"
"I want some," Ronon said, for it sounded interesting and if McKay
liked it, it had to be good, for the man had a similar love of food
as Ronon. Plus, if it were remotely harmful he doubt the man would be
"I ah love to, but ah that was um my last piece. I'm sure I can "
Rodney said only to be interrupted by Ronon grabbing him by the shirt
and pulling him forward. Before he could do more then squawk, Ronon's
mouth was on his. He was stunned at first, then he could feel warm
lips upon his moving firm but not hurting, then a tongue demanding
entrance and since it felt good, Rodney decided to let it happen. It
was over too quick for Rodney to think anymore on what it felt like
beyond good. He stood there once he was let go and breathed, trying
to regain his balance of just being kissed by Ronon Dex.
After a moment he looked up to demand what Ronon was thinking only to
see the man's jaw was moving in a way most people's do when chewing
gum and he realized that it hadn't been so much a kiss but a
robbery. "What the hell was that!" he demanded, feeling angry at
being cheated out of a kiss and his gum.
"I wanted to try it, it's good, McKay," Ronon said and smirked.
Rodney glared, and then gave a wicked smile. "Bet you can't blow a
bubble with it?" he challenged.
"I could if you told me how," Ronon growled back.
"You use your teeth and tongue to stretch the gum out over your
tongue and then you pull back your tongue and blow into the thinned
material until an air pocket or bubble forms. The bigger the better,"
he added with a smirk.
He watched as Ronon worked his jaw then teeth and tongue until he got
the basic movements down and then made several attempts to make a
bubble. Finally after a few false starts, he started to form one, and
it grew and it grew and it grew "
"You know, it's never wise to make them too big," Rodney said
casually, though his eyes were gleaming something wicked.
"Why's that," Ronon mumbled, but just then the bubble burst and
splattered all his mouth.
Rodney laughed hard. "That's that's why," he finally said between
deep belly laughs as
Ronon tried to draw the gum back into his mouth but found too much
was sticking to his beard, and it was pulling on it. He growled at
Rodney only laughed harder, "your own fault, you Yeti, you stole it
without knowing what to do with it. Don't blame me." Seeing Ronon
turning to stomp off, Rodney was tempted to let the man suffer, but
he was a teammate and even if he never admitted it out loud, the kiss
had been hot. "Wait," he called out and hurried to catch up to Ronon
who had stopped but not turned to face him.
"Come on, Romeo, I'll help you get the gum out of your beard without
serious destruction being done to the city or your face," Rodney
said, pulling on Ronon's arm, going to lead him back to Rodney's
quarters for he had MRE's and some ice packs which would freeze the
substance and make it easier to be removed. Of course he wasn't going
to mention the trim Ronon's beard was going to get not until after it
was done and he had a fair good head start on hiding.
"Thought you were hungry," Ronon said, annoyed and angry at what
happened with the gum. He knew McKay had tricked him into blowing the
gum stuff too big, but he did steal it from the man, even if the
method had been pleasant for him.
"I am, but I have MRE's in my quarters and what we need to get that
stuff out. While we're there we can discuss that kiss you gave me,"
This time Ronon gave a wicket smile, though it didn't quite have the
same appeal with pick stuff all over his beard. "Kiss what's a kiss?"

- Hi Mystic! How are you?
"When I'm good I'm very, very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better."
- Hi Kim,
I loved this. You got the voices down well, especially Rodney and I
could hear the dialogue in my head.
I hope you are keeping well.
Have a good Easter.
