Tonight's election wasn't something Effy could say she was particularly invested in. Wasn't like she was in the country, and she couldn't think it was going to affect her much here.

Besides, they all talked complete shit most of the time anyway. Politicians for you.

And yet... Stretched out on her bed, laptop on, with the BBC website in the background as she threw the odd IM back and forth with Tony. He could vote, that was her reasoning for why it apparently meant more to him.

[[Ah, elections. Door's open, post is also!]]

The past few times, Effy had come down to his room so Alex figured he could put in an effort and walk up a whole flight of stairs to see if she was in.

And look that, an open door and the person who he'd come up to see beyond it. "Being nerdy?"

Well. Laptop. He figured it was that or porn. And he'd used the porn line before.

Effy glanced up, somewhere in the middle of typing, but looked back to finish it before she answered.

"Yep. I'm a right geek." Or not. "You caught me."

"Oh no, I don't think we can be friends anymore." Yes, using that word instead of anything else. Come on, it was them. He did take that as a invitation to wander in. "I don't do geeks. Even hot ones."

Friends. Right.

"Well shit." Wasn't that going to be a problem. "You're a bit late, huh?"

Date: 2010-05-07 12:12 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fratboybitch.livejournal.com
Well, any other word was going to cause discomfort.

"I don't do geeks. Even hot ones. Starting now," Alex clarified, stopping when his knees hit her bed and he could crane his neck to see what exactly she was doing if she wasn't geeking it out. "Nerds though, I do nerds. They're kinky as shit."

Date: 2010-05-07 12:22 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pastmewrong.livejournal.com
"So, what does this come under?" she wondered, turning the screen his way. Exciting stuff.

She suspected he'd decide 'nerd', if just for getting around his new 'rule'.

Alex knelt down by the side of her bed and leaned closer, elbows braced against the top of the bed so he could get a better look.

"That just looks fucking dull," he finally said, smirking and looking back at her. "I don't know if that means you're a nerd or a geek or kinky. I think I might have to make up a whole 'nother category for you. You're just that special."

Date: 2010-05-07 12:44 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pastmewrong.livejournal.com
"Gonna pretend that's a compliment." She liked it better that way. Having her own category sounded kind of sweet.

Date: 2010-05-07 12:50 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fratboybitch.livejournal.com
"Just don't ask me what the name of that category is," he said, leaning his chin down on his arms and peering up at her adorably. He thought he was completely adorable.

"I'm not thinking that fast tonight," he admitted and flicked his eyes back to her screen. "So, what's the interest in this besides it being where you're from?"

From: [identity profile] pastmewrong.livejournal.com
Effy smirked, looking over to see if anything had changed since she started talking to him. "Happens to be what my brother's on tonight." And it was so much easier to vaguely follow than expect Tony to catch her up. "His first vote."

Date: 2010-05-07 01:01 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fratboybitch.livejournal.com
"Oooh, rite of passage," Alex said, nodding his understanding of that, at least. Not that he'd thought about his own ability to vote now that he was eighteen. He didn't much care.

"Maybe he's the nerd of the family," he added, smirking. "And you're just his tiny, loyal sidekick."

Date: 2010-05-07 01:15 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pastmewrong.livejournal.com
He probably was. Effy didn't really have much commitment to anything academic, where Tony actually did. There was a reason most of those weird books she read were ones she'd picked up from him.

However, despite the truth of that first statement, she objected to being referred to as a tiny sidekick, and shot Alex a sideways look. "No." Just no.

Date: 2010-05-07 01:23 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fratboybitch.livejournal.com
"How very succinct." Alex wasn't phased though. He just smiled slowly up at her before turning himself around, back against the side of her bed and legs stretched out. That meant he could let his head rest back against the bed. Much better.

"Holding conversations with you is always a joy, Effy," he said but he sounded more amused than anything. "Fine, you're not a sidekick but you are tiny. Sorry, that's just how it is. I kind of like you tiny though. Easier to lift up."

Plus for a lot of things, that.

Date: 2010-05-07 09:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pastmewrong.livejournal.com
She could take tiny, but did so with a bit of an eyeroll and the tapping out of a nice and vague 'talk to you later' to Tony before nudging the laptop away.

"Who knew being pocket-sized was such a pro. Didn't know you had all these urges to carry me around."

Date: 2010-05-07 10:22 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fratboybitch.livejournal.com
"I have urges to do a lot of things," he said, shrugging and not really answering that question completely. "I had the urge to come down and see you so I did. You, apparently, had a creative urge a few days ago and found an outlet for that."

Date: 2010-05-07 10:38 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pastmewrong.livejournal.com
It took a good few moments for Effy to click what creative urges he might be referring there, but a little smirk emerged when she did. "You prefer I kept those all in?"

Date: 2010-05-07 10:51 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fratboybitch.livejournal.com
"I don't think I said anything like that," he replied, turning to glance back at her and that smirk. His phone was all the more important to him now what with all her creativity contained in there.

"It would have been even more fun if you'd let me be there when you got creative," Alex said, tsk'ing lightly. "I'm pretty good with artistic things."

Liar.

Date: 2010-05-07 10:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pastmewrong.livejournal.com
"Would've ruined my surprise." Didn't think he'd tell her it hadn't been fun stumbling across something like that. "Couldn't have that, however expert your photography."

Date: 2010-05-07 11:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fratboybitch.livejournal.com
"I just found them earlier today," he said and laughed. "If I hadn't been dicking around with my phone, might have been even longer. And he would have kept that secret and just been your typical smug self with your smug secret."

He would have done the same damn thing, yep.

"You are pretty hot." It wasn't like he hadn't told her that before but it bore repeating. "What made you do something like that for me? Sudden sweet streak?"

Date: 2010-05-07 11:34 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pastmewrong.livejournal.com
Effy hitched a shrug. "Like you said. Creativity needed an outlet." And maybe, just maybe, she could do things for other people sometimes. Just because she felt like it.

But she wasn't going to cop to that. Of course not.

"Gave me something to do."

Date: 2010-05-07 11:49 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fratboybitch.livejournal.com
Of course not. And he didn't expect anything like that either. If Alex thought about it, he could probably figure out that she'd done it for him just because but he'd never point that out.

Whatever the reason why, Alex wasn't going to thank her with words. Because that wasn't what he did (often) and it made him feel awkward. Instead, he got back to his knees and leaned up, reaching for a kiss because she was right there and he wanted to and he could.

Date: 2010-05-07 12:16 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pastmewrong.livejournal.com
Well. When there was appreciation like that, it made letting a hint of her softer side shine through that bit more worthwhile. She'd kind of wondered if he'd push it just to tease her, but apparently not. Wasn't about to complain about that.

Preferred scenario right here where she didn't have to justify her giving moment, and could just kiss him and enjoy it, and maybe brush his cheeks with her fingers, a little idle touching for her.

Date: 2010-05-07 12:33 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fratboybitch.livejournal.com
Truth be told, he'd thought about teasing her about it and making needling her a little about being a giant teddy bear where he was concerned but he'd stomped that idea pretty quickly.

Sure, it'd wind her up but it might make her less likely to do things like that in the future and he liked when he got little surprises like that.

Going with this was turning out so much better and while he'd intended that kiss to be light and brief, he got a little caught up and lingered longer than planned, encouraged by her touching and how good this always felt.

Date: 2010-05-07 12:57 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pastmewrong.livejournal.com
This? Far more likely to encourage a repeat of that kind of thing.

Few moments longer, and she broke away enough to smile and mutter out, "What is it with you and floors?" Had to notice the slightly unusual angle here. She was higher than him!

Date: 2010-05-07 01:07 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] fratboybitch.livejournal.com
She was higher than him and that was very rare! Benefit of being a generally tall teenager. It meant he was higher and could get away with calling her tiny.

"I like floors," he answered which explained absolutely nothing. "You like desks, I like floors. And maybe I was trying to be different."

That explained a little more.

"Want me somewhere else?"
