All your coffee are belong to Gabe!

Location: The Cravat
Time: N/A. (Though for all intents and purposes it is morning.)


This morning, as with many mornings, Gabe's first thought was one word. This one word was 'coffee.' He carefully extricated himself from his and Jeannot's bed, making sure not to wake his love as he did. He left the room quietly and went down the stairs, looking for any new room, hopefully one containing a coffee-maker and some grounds. As luck ((or possibly the BC's inherent MKCSR powers)) would have it, the first room he decided to explore was the kitchen, the coffee-maker on the counter like a gift from G-d. He only had to look through two cupboards before finding the coffee grounds and cups, and he set about making it, humming Chelsea Hotel #2 very loudly to himself. Once done, he sat upon the counter, impatiently watching it percolate.

"Wow," Gabe said, truly impressed, once Jeannot had left. "You really fucked up. Good show." It was unclear whether he was being sarcastic or not.

"That is correct," Holmes said, sipping his coffee. "I'm fairly certain I know what I've done, but if I'm wrong, I don't want to inform him." He groaned.

"He knows about your friend, back in the bar," Gabe replied. "If that's what you mean." There was an awkward silence until the toast popped again, interrupting it. It was burnt. Gabe swore.

"I thought that was what it was." Holmes buried his head in his hands. "Let this be a lesson to you, Rosenberg," he said thickly, "Never believe someone who says that they are not interested in romance."

Gabe laughed. "Do you really think you should be the one giving me the advice?" he asked, taking the toast out with his fingers and staring at it. "It's burnt," he stated. "Want it anyhow?"

"It's not for me," Holmes replied, glancing up through his fingers. "I don't eat much. Watson, however, does. On the subject of advice, however -" He sat up, glaring at Gabe. "Have you any for me?"

"Don't fuck up again," Gabe said, simply, and took a sip of coffee. "Some men find continuing fuck-ups endearing. Watson doesn't seem the type."

"No," Holmes agreed, "he's not, but that's hardly the subject at hand." He nursed his coffee for a moment before adding, broodingly, "I suppose I shall just have to apologize." The mere word sent shivers down his spine.

"Why?" Gabe asked, climbing on to of the counter again and sitting cross-legged, nursing his coffee. "He's the one who dumped you and ran off to get married. What you did hardly counts as infidelity, and he's stupid to think so."

Jan. 28th, 2007 11:04 pm (UTC)
Holmes looked blank for a moment, then shook his head and went back to the coffee. "Infidelity, no, but it will still make him angry. And there's really nothing for it." He winced, having burnt his tongue. "I will admit, though," he continued, "that I don't really mind apologizing to him."

Gabe shrugged. "Then do it sooner rather than later," he suggested. "Before he has time to throw his right shoe at you." He took a sip of his coffee, having nothing more to say.

Jan. 28th, 2007 11:34 pm (UTC)
Holmes laughed out loud. "Well, he is known for his excellent aim, not only with a shoe but with a gun. Hopefully he isn't that angry, though."

((Wow. I read that as "superexcellent aim" and did a double take.))

"Hopefully not, because if he is," Gabe warned, "I'm not sticking around to disarm him, and if he hurts Jean I will hurt you." He smiled, though he wasn't really joking. "On that note, you lose pistol privileges the second you start going through withdrawal. We don't want you shooting anyone, yourself included."

Jan. 28th, 2007 11:57 pm (UTC)
(Hahaha! Oh my God, I think Holmes needs to use the phrase, "Superexcellent aim," someday. Somehow.))

"Oh, yes," Holmes groaned, beginning to regain something of his good humor. "That, I am quite looking forward to." He shrugged wryly. "It will mostly likely do me good."

((I think we should just replace 'excellent' with 'superexcellent' every time one of them tries to say it.))

"Oh, probably," Gabe agreed. "But that doesn't mean it's not going to be nasty. Hopefully Watson's medical profession will force him to stop throwing shoes at you at least long enough hold your head over the toilet." He fully intended never to let the Left Shoe Incident die.
simplysidhe
Jan. 29th, 2007 12:26 am (UTC)
((A superexcellent idea.))

"Amusement swells unabashedly in my breast," Holmes groused, returning to the coffee. "I assume you're going to start referring to it as the Left Shoe Incident, and then never let me forget it, aren't you?"

"I am now," Gabe admitted. "You're gotta admit that it's pretty funny, especially since it's Doctor John fucking Watson we're talking about. Not just any man throwing shoes at his ex-boyfriend, no." He laughed, shaking his head. "It's Doctor John Watson throwing shoes at The Great Sherlock Holmes." He was pretty sure it would never actually stop being funny, though he managed to quiet his laughter.

"It wasn't shoes, plural," Holmes disagreed vehemently, "it was shoe, singular."

"It would've been both if you hadn't run away so quick," Gabe replied. "Did he hit you, by the way? With his 'superexcellent aim'?" He wasn't sure why he'd said 'superexcellent.' It had seemed like the thing to do.
simplysidhe
Jan. 29th, 2007 01:33 am (UTC)
"He did not," Holmes said, not without pride. "Superexcellent though his aim may be." He frowned. "Superexcellent? What does that mean?"

"It seems pretty self-explanatory, to me," Gabe said, swinging his legs over the counter, much like a small child. He glanced over at the door, slightly impatient. His impatience is another way he's much like a small child. "Hopefully Jeannot is up there talking some sense into the Good Doctor." He smiled. "After all, we haven't heard the right shoe hit the wall, have we?"

Jan. 29th, 2007 03:24 am (UTC)
"No, that we haven't," Holmes agreed, "although the fact that he has not arrived downstairs already does not speak towards his stability either."

Jan. 29th, 2007 03:38 am (UTC)
"True," Gabe muttered, hopping down from the counter. "Though maybe Jean is trying to talk some sense into him. They seemed to have been getting along pretty well yesterday. Maybe it'll work."

Jan. 29th, 2007 03:48 am (UTC)
"Perhaps." Holmes was looking worried, though. "A silence of this duration, though. . ." He paused, and as if on cue, which was exactly what it was, there came a muffled shout from upstairs. "And it is a problem! I'm married, and I love her, and besides it isn't possible and I really. . ." Watson's voice quieted, becoming gradually inaudible. Holmes's eyebrows hit his hairline.
