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.

"Criminal activities?" Holmes half laughed, half winced. "I didn't hear that, remember. Your misguided youth and adulthood fill me with the moralistic pain of the British law enforcement. But then, you are American. I wash my hands of it." The joke was lost, though, as he glanced nervously upstairs, still unsure of exactly what Watson's shout might signify.

Gabe saw Holmes' nervous glance. "Don't worry," he said, softly. "He'll probably come down and act like nothing at all happened." He smiled. "Though he may apologize for the Left Shoe Incident."

"Oh, he will," Holmes laughed. "He'll feel awful about it. Malice isn't in his nature." He sighed, although unsentimentally. "I am fond of him."

Gabe shook his head. "Just 'fond'?" he asked. "Somehow I think you're understating that."

"All right, more than fond," Holmes conceded, wrinkling his nose. "'Extremely fond.' Or maybe 'possessive.'" It was not totally impossible that Holmes was running Gabe around in circles for his own enjoyment.

"Just so long as that's not your main arguing point when you try to get him to leave his wife for you," Gabe replied, and laughed at the image of a very distressed Holmes informing an equally distressed Watson that he is very 'possessive' of him. "You'd probably get something else hurled at your head, probably something more dangerous, and probably more on target."

"They have pistols, you know," Gabe remarked to Jeannot, leaning down to kiss his love in greeting, though he kept one eye on the Victorians the entire time.

"Due to his well known superexcellent aim - " Holmes began absently, then started. "Why on earth do I keep using that word?"

((I am talking to myself, as we appear to be having linear problems again.))

"I'm sure I don't know," Watson said automatically, slightly flustered. "It certainly doesn't sound like you."

Silence reigned for a moment. Holmes said, "Are you going to throw your shoe at me?"

Watson swallowed and shook his head. Holmes indicated the coffee pot, and Watson took a mug, poured himself some, and went to stand near Holmes, although a safe distance.

"Oh no," Holmes said innocently. "Not at all. Because, as you know, Watson hasn't an indecent thought in his head."

This made Watson choke on his coffee, so it was really only natural that Holmes reached out to pat him on the back. Oddly enough, however, his hand remained there long after Watson's coughing had subsided.

Gabe had abandoned his coffee to watch the Holmes and Watson show, but Watson's spluttering had reminded him of his own cup, which was woefully empty. He turned away from the two Victorians to refill it, predicting nothing more than an awkward brushing off of Holmes' hand or a stilted exchange of pleasantries.

A very large and very sick part of him wanted very seriously to make popcorn.

Gabe's expected awkwardness did not come. Instead, Watson made a strangled noise that might have been an apology, but Holmes only shook his head and tightened his grip on his friend's waist. Turning his head to establish eye contact, the detective looked wrly at Watson. "I won't bite you," he assured him sensibly. Watson nodded and shrugged.
