Happy weekend! How’s everyone done with NaNo if you were taking part? I did better than expected in one respect (I made almost 32,000 words!) but… um… confession… I didn’t write what I was supposed to be writing. I need my wrists slapping for getting so hung up on Joaquim Phoenix’s Joker that I finished the MM fanfic I was writing about the adorable Arthur Fleck, and started on an MF one about the same character. What the hell. I couldn’t help myself, and it was nice to get the instant reviews. It reminded me of where I came from.
I will, however, finish Favourite Toy 2 very soon. In the meantime, it’s back to New Year’s Eve for Ryan and Remy, with plenty of cocktails consumed by now. Oops!

“Happy New Year!” the TV bellowed, and Big Ben began to chime.
“Oh, it’s midnight,” Remy slurred. “Happy New Year, Ryan.”
“Same.” I leaned over to kiss him and somehow my lips connected with his, instead of his cheek. What the hell. I lingered, caressing his lips and tasting his tongue as he responded. I registered cherry and coke and mint and something else all mixed together from the drinks. I slid my arm around him and pulled him closer as I thrust in more firmly with my tongue. God, he tasted good. He tasted of everything I’d been drinking, with the kick of chilli from one of the snacks.
I came up for air and ducked my face into his neck, nibbling soft skin. We were lying against the cushions, him half underneath me with his arms around my neck.
“Ryan,” he gasped.
“Mm, that’s me.” I laughed, and sank my teeth into his shoulder, getting a mouthful of shirt. “Damn. Get this off.” I tugged at the offending garment, struggling and fumbling.
“Yeah.” I concentrated fiercely on getting his buttons undone. Buttons were so fucking difficult when you’d had too much to drink.
“Are you sure this is what you want?”
“Yeah,” I said with conviction. Naked skin was what I wanted, and at last I found it. His chest was warm and smooth, a little soft over his pecs. I stroked and squeezed, squirming around to get my legs up on the sofa. Remy groaned and moved under me. His legs were apart, one either side of me, and he was rock hard.
