A/N: this is the Fargo's thoughts when he and Claudia first met. In 13.1
Also, I had never seen Eureka before the Crossover episode.
After battling with the old fossil who wouldn't know new technology if it came up through the warehouse floor shouting 'I'm an artifact, research me!' He was Douglas Fargo, head of Global Dynamics for god's sake, and this old man is lecturing him about binary?
He is lying on his side trying to cut through the mass of outdated wire to install his new, brilliant GASP. The thing that will revolutionise and update this 70's warehouse cast-off.
When he drops the laser gun, his baby project, into the deep dark depths of the wire graveyard, he curses. It doesn't fall very far, but he can't see, let alone touch the bottom it's so dark and smoky down there. He reaches down anyway, fruitlessly into the stomach of the behemoth warehouse.
"Hellooo?" Oh great, just what he needs, another up-themselves warehouse agent, he swears if he wasn't so awake right now, he'd pinch himself to wake up from the internet rumour dream. He keeps reaching down into the shaft, trying in vain to locate the stupid laser. Butterfingers.
"Wire in the hole?" the voice comes again, this time with a smart ass comment he hates upon hearing, but, as he turns around and sees the beautiful red-headed creature standing in the doorway, carrying a satchel and smiling, he changes his mind. "I drop things down there all the time" Maybe not an up-them-selves agent after all then.
Sitting back, he watches in amazement as she pulls a ring out of her bag and her arm glows white. He is shocked when she just lays down on her stomach, asking him, a complete and utter stranger, to hold onto her, he looks for a suitable place to put his hands, but finding none, decides to risk the sexual harassment suit and settles for her hips.
Before he can stop himself, his eyes travel to her pert bottom sticking up slightly as she delves deeper into the depths of the hole. He forces himself to look away but his traitorous eyes glance and slide back, again and again and again.
The mysterious girl gets hold of the laser gun and pulls up, out of the shaft again. His hands linger on her hips, as if held in place by sticky glue. Reluctant to let go, his fingers ghost over her hips, waist and finally leave the warmth of this stranger's body, to rest on his lap.
"I'm Claudia, resident tech girl" She introduces herself and shakes his hand, he's still in awe of the girl, her bum, the ring, the warehouse, a million other things since the scary lady with a beehive arrived in his flat.
He tries to learn more of the ring, tries to learn more about the pretty girl kneeling next to him in the dark room. For some reason, he wants to spend more time with her, she is an enigma. She's amazing. He finds words tumbling out of his mouth before he can think about what he's saying. He wants a tour of the warehouse? He wants to be around her more like.
Outlander? He likes her witty banter, he likes all of her, god, what's happened to him? He's only known her for 3 minutes. But, she picks up his inventions and, she knows what she's talking about.
For the first time in his life, Fargo thinks he's found an equal. For the first time in his life, Fargo thinks he's in love.
