What this journal needs is more MGS fic  

This one was even on my to-write list! Procrastination, I will conquer you one day.

Title: 198X
Pairing: Big Boss/Ocelot
Rating: SFW
Word Count: ~800
Summary: Ocelot was lucky his deeds were still forgivable, at least enough to allow for a reunion.
Disclaimer: MGS belongs to Hideo Kojima (happy belated birthday!) and Konami.


“Damn, but I missed you.”

The admission was unbelievably pathetic, but if he'd already taken the plunge and demonstrated the fact in vivid physical terms, the words themselves were little more than an afterthought. Nothing to lose at this point. Even the part of his mind that scorned sentimental platitudes and should have acted as a reliable deterrent was silent.

“If only I had that kind of time,” sounded the reply; amused, acquiescent.

Time isn't what you have but what you make, thought Ocelot wryly without pressing the point; he could, after all, attest to that better than anyone. Either he made the time or time caught up with him, in the small hours before dawn when the horizon was at its darkest, or when he aimed his revolver for a ricochet shot. In casual chatter amongst his comrades-of-the-moment, insignificant scraps his well-honed spy's instinct picked out of the static for no reason. Only so that he'd know how many of them had families they could barely feed, lovers they didn't get to see and yet clung to for their daily dose of desperate motivation.

Ocelot had never pitied himself next to them, but he did remember well enough to be capable of flashbacks.

That could have been a factor in how this little reunion had played out – not that he minded that now, of course. Not having dared to hope was more the case. Granted, Big Boss had been the one to contact him – how he'd actually managed, Ocelot had no idea – but for all the message had said it could have been a belated call for vengeance. Yet in spite of that possibility, Ocelot had found it unthinkable not to oblige - so here they were, miraculously contained within one room of a dingy motel on Central American mainland, quiet and sated on the bed. Surreal, the unassuming comfort of it.

Of course Big Boss had asked at first: was Ocelot still Zero's associate? Had EVA been all right after the experiment? He'd given half-answers to sensitive subjects and honest ones where it made no difference, and fortunately Big Boss seemed to be wise enough to expect nothing else. Not on a truce as fragile as they had this night.

Ocelot stretched a little, the movement languid but sufficient to disturb the position they'd settled into a short while ago. His lack of consideration was met with a subdued grunt that really shouldn't have felt as endearing to him as it did.

“What, getting tough to stay awake these days?”

“Breaking curfew just isn't as exciting for us grown-ups,” Big Boss shot back easily, evidently not much better on the teasing front.

Ocelot snorted. “I bet you say that to all the new recruits.”

“Who died and made you a recruit?”

Wriggling around to get face-to-face, Ocelot shut him up with a kiss.

There'd be no full-blown second round that night, but that did nothing to hamper their enjoyment. The opportunity to take in this near-impossible situation was just as well, at least where Ocelot was concerned. Hands glued to the other's skin with both sweat and greedy fascination, he did his best to relearn the contours of the body he hadn't laid eyes upon in years. Was that a new scar just there? He rubbed his fingers over the roughly repaired tissue, a bit curious but not especially keen to ask.

Their hips rocked at a lazy pace, no purpose to the motion but to preserve the steady glide of skin. Pure familiarity, neither about to bother with more exertion. Leaning his forehead on Big Boss's shoulder, Ocelot gave a drawn-out sigh.

It figured. Somehow, it always did for him.

Eventually they went still again, content to lie tangled in the sheets. Knot of cheap smelly fabric that would have long since been dumped in a vat of acid if there was any justice, Ocelot mused with indignation that was half-hearted at best. It wasn't long before the fingers threading through his hair stole his attention once again.

“You weren't bluffing,” said Big Boss matter-of-factly. “That's even longer than I expected.”

“I should be grateful that's all the commentary you're going to enlighten me with.”

The hands stalled, then resumed their routine. Greying strands curling round tanned fingers. “Come on. There are so many better things I could annoy you with.”

“I'm sure there are.”

“Doesn't mean I'm not glad to see you, Adamska.”

At that, Ocelot had to laugh out loud. “Please, John, don't even bother. You knew I'd take you up on the offer the moment you sent that note of yours. The least you could do is admit that much.”

No reply came to that, no argument. Tonight was armistice.

Thank you! The interaction is what got me to ship them in the first place, so I try to do it justice when I write them. And banter's always good, as we have agreed. :D
