Two Sulu/Chekov ficlets  
Two ficlets written for a music-inspired fic meme.


(song: "Please Let Me Get What I Want" by The Smiths)

Hikaru never asks for anything because it always ends in disappointment.

Asking didn't get him a bike on his 6th birthday, or a hovercar on his 16th.

Asking didn't keep the bullies away from him in grade school, it didn't save his sister, and it sure as hell didn't keep his mother from leaving.

So when Hikaru decides he wants Pavel Chekov he doesn't ask.

He hopes. He pines. He pleads with whatever higher power might be listening.

Please.


(song: What Is the Light? by The Flaming Lips)

He can't explain it. The brightness that seems to emanate from Pavel.

There's no scientific explanation for it.

But Hikaru sees it on the bridge. He sees it during meals, and in the meeting rooms, and in the rec hall.

And he can see it best when he's alone with Pavel, their bodies pressed together, their faces inches apart, and Pavel's smiling face staring up at him.

“Hikaru..” Pavel whispers and for a moment Sulu could almost swear he goes blind.

Lovely. As soon as I started to read the first drabble, I heard the words "Good times... for a change..." start to play in my head. Haha.

These are both gorgeous and the first one very bittersweet.

Oh lord, I already thought of Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want as a C/S song even before I read that....and now I deeply need Sulu to be here so I can hug him.

I hadn't thought of it before, but as soon as it came on during the meme I knew I had to write pining Sulu :)

Lovely! And I particularly like the idea of Pavel being this bright light in Sulu's like.

Thank you! And I like that idea too :)
