Ship: Boost/Sinker

Set somewhere in the world of The Clone Wars, non-canonically but of course! So, timeline, what timeline?

If your partner is the one cracking all kinds of tasteless jokes at the most inconvenient moments, a straight (pun intended) face is certainly hard to keep. Most of the times.

And so, when that same partner comes up with something, which could perhaps be considered a laughable moment for some? But, to the contrary, for the most however, would be a more of an endearing situation? Perhaps to be considered to be more of a hot and sexy thing even? Then laughing, is certainly farthest from one's mind. Drooling taking its place in stead.

Part of the Boost/Sinker series

"Yeah, so I am planning… for a very special moment"

'Sometimes, some new and creative ways are thought to simply bring the zing and zap right back into a somewhat steady, but 'set in a specific way' kind of a relationship'

"I wouldn't say our relationship has grown stale. Far from it. Only, it seems, that we are stuck with the same old routines. In the bedroom that is. Again, not that I am complaining, but…"

Sinker was trying to subtly and then again, none too subtly explain what he meant with this comment to his best friend Hardcase. Which was in regards of his 'not so new anymore relationship' with Boost. The two of them only recently having made things official and even moved in together. Now that the war was over and all. And the clones were pretty much free citizens to do as they pleased with their lives. And it was about karking time too!

Thank the Force for small pleasures!

"I hear ya!" And while Hardcase could be sympathise to his friends predicament, he could hardly empathise with Sinker's current predicament. Because Hardcase's and Wolffe's relationship, in and out the bedroom was certainly anything and everything but stale or boring or set even. Quite the contrary! At least as far as Hardcase thought about it to be as. The variance of it all clearly present there. Still, after all this time too!

"So, guess you have thought of something to…well, you know, to fire up the ol' heat then?" Hardcase knew the look on Sinker's face all too well. Totally familiar every time Sinker was about to pull some stupid stunt out of his helmet. Only as it clearly had something to do with sex this time, Hardcase really hoped it wasn't a thing the rest of them would hear about at some point. As laughing at a verbal joke was a completely other matter compared to laughing at some sex stunt gone awry.

Because it was bound to happen where Sinker was concerned. That of a really way out there, supposedly sexy position or similar happenstance causing either Sinker or then Boost, to end up in the medical bay. Something of which Hardcase was sure of would happen and the worry of his friends plans grew exponentially just then.

"Well actually, there is something I have been wanting to try out. Ever since we went into that special cabaret. Remember? Where we saw all those gender bending performers dressed up in all kinds of fancy clothing putting on a show?"

Sinker had been totally in awe of the various male and gender neutral performers having been dressed up in the most fanciest of outfits. The finest of attires. In delicate silks, satins and lace, not to mention the high heeled boots they had all worn. Their faces painted and made up to look gorgeous in the most ambiguous of ways. The representation being certainly against to what was the supposed norm for most societies still.

"I do indeed. It was certainly a titillating event if any I have seen in my entire life!"

Hardcase was reminded of how exited not to mention aroused both he himself and Wolffe had been after the spectacle. And even if neither of them had expressed the need to dress up in similar fashion. Not yet anyway. Well, it had certainly given them a few ideas to try out in the bedroom.

But clearly, Sinker had gotten a few ideas of his very own and wanted to do more than simply to fantasise about dressing up. Or at least, that was the gist Hardcase had gotten from what Sinker was on about now.

"So, you had something similar in mind then? Dressing up in those kinds of fancy clothing?"

As this was certainly something even Hardcase would love to see for himself. Even if it was his friend doing the dressing up and all. At least that was what Hardcase assumed from this, conversation they were having at the moment.

"Well yeah. I did, I mean I do. But as it is a surprise for Boost, I would love for you to accompany me for the shopping part. You know, to make sure I won't over do it or anything. You know, a second set of eyes and all that."

Sinker smirked rather nervously even if the smile was more on the lewd side of things, seeing the curiosity peek up in his friends eyes clearly having mentioned his intentions for the surprise.

"I, um… Yeah! I would love that!"

Hardcase felt his mouth go all dry all of a sudden even if he really loved the whole idea. The thought of his friend trying on, um some sexy apparel and all… Yeah, Hardcase really needed to see Wolffe after all that. Like immediately after.

But after a moment of thought, calming himself down, he managed to speak again. Almost normally.

"So, when did you plan on this, um, shopping to happen then?"

"Tomorrow. If you are free of course?"

Sinker knew Wolffe would be in trouble as having seen the effect the show had had on his friends as much as it had on Sinker and Boost as well. And perhaps this shopping date would give Hardcase a few ideas of his own as well.

"Count me in, bud!"

Hardcase managed a to squeak out, with some effort. Still, this was one shopping spree he would certainly not want to miss out on!

"A fair warning though - you are not supposed to laugh!"

'Even if laughter is the best medicine, sometimes it is simply better to take a step back and think again, about the laughing part'

Sinker had warned Boost. Just before emerging from the bathroom, to not to laugh at him. As even if he had been sure this was going to be a surprise for Boost and having seen the lust-filled glares of his friend in the changing room of the shop they had found the needed gear in, Sinker all of a sudden felt a bit nervous of his choice now that he was about to show it off to his partner.

As it was, the idea behind it all with Sinker having wanted to get something different going in the bedroom. Not that there had been any complaints from his partner so far, but trying something new could not harm either, could it?

Emerging from the bathroom, Boost already lying ready and waiting on their bed. Not really sure as to what to except was going to happen. Even if Sinker had warned him there would be something special there. And so, being rather nervous while coming to full view for his lover.

Sinker was dressed in a pair of satiny stockings, the ensemble complete with garter belt and holders. His torso being covered in a black lacy top matching his panties. The whole outlook perfected with a pair of high heeled boots, leading up to his muscular thighs.

Sinker stood there, his bravado all but gone, feeling nervous as hell, even if his pose was still all there. But somehow, making direct eye contact with Boost seemed difficult at best.

If did not help that Boost was totally glaring at him, eyes wide, mouth open. No words coming out from his mouth.

"You are not supposed to laugh at me."

Sinker warned Boost again. Seeing the look on his lovers face, unreadable for a moment at least.

"We agreed, remember."

Sinker reminded Boost again. As this was, a rather delicate operation. Even for the jokester of a man. But playing dress up usually wasn't part of the jokes or pranks Sinker liked to pull. So, Boost had been forewarned. Several times so far.

"No. No, no!"

Boost gave a long, long glare at Sinker's form. Taking it all in. As Sinker had fully emerged from the bathroom and stood there, in all his glory in front of the bed for Boost to see.

"I am not laughing."

Boost tried to assure Sinker, who had started to look more and more uncomfortable and certain his choice of cheering up his partner had been the wrong one after all. But…

"More like, I am in total awe of it all."

Boost's eyes were still wide. But it was because he was really trying to understand it was really Sinker there, standing in a most seductive outfit. Having done this all. For Boost no less.

Licking his all of a sudden dry lips, Boost kept on staring as his most gorgeous partner.


Boost was suddenly at a loss of words too.

"You look um… you are so gorgeous and totally hot! Breathtakingly so!"

Finally able to articulate what he wanted to. What Boost needed Sinker to know.

"And I really, really, really love it! All of it! All of you!"

Boost could simply not tear his eyes off of his lover. And trying to assure him, that he was simply beautiful in this unexpected get-up Sinker had donned.

"You… are sure?"

Sinker just had to ask. Even if he could see the lust, the want and need in his lover's eyes, Boost wanting nothing more than to ravish Sinker.

"Of course I am sure, my love! You are simply stunning!"

Boost was full of praises at the very moment, finally getting his vocals back.

"Now come over here so I can, touch you!"

Boost offered his hand to Sinker, in efforts of guiding him into their bed.

Sinker could not help the coy smirk appearing on his face. And so, the bravado was back again.

After all, this surprise had been as much for himself as it had been for Boost. Loving the feel of the materials on his skin. Knowing well, they would not remain there for long. But still, it had all been worth the while, seeing how enthralled Boost had been seeing Sinker all dressed up in his bedroom attire, as he had called it while getting the ensemble in the first place.

And so, before Sinker took the offered hand, he decided to give his partner a bit of a show, with a few spins and a twirls around the bedroom. Just for Boost to have a good look-se of it all.

The surprise of it all having been more than Boost had even dared to hope.

And for this simple reason, the effort his lover had put into it all, Boost knew why he had fallen in love with Sinker in the first place. And this time, what Sinker had done, was not a laughing matter. At all.

Only a sexy, totally awesome and to be admired and devoured kind of matter. Hoping only to repeat it soon enough.

"Next time, you can be the one wearing the heels!"

"Walk a parsec in my shoes and feel how the heels actually feel, then you can complain about it!'

"That… that was all simply awesome!"

Boost was panting. Heavily so. Having been fully played out by his partner. The outfit of Sinker's having had the wanted effect on Boost, especially the high heeled footwear. Which Boost had demanded Sinker to leave on. And so, the following sex having been much more intense, leaving the man totally consumed and out of breath.

Still, Boost was not about to thank Sinker by kissing him, giving him the appreciation Sinker deserved and thanking him once again for the totally unexcited surprise his partner had arranged for him.

"Thank you so much sweetheart!"

"Well, I am glad you enjoyed the show and all the other things we did too."

Sinker laughed then, kissing Boost languidly.

"Oh it was a wonderful idea hon! I don't think I have been that… stimulated, in a long while."

Boost admitted, not that sex wasn't good between them. But this had all been, very much different indeed.

"I would say so!"

Sinker was only too happy his little plan had worked, as it had indeed been a new and totally mind blowing experience they had had just now. For both of them.

"But next time, I would love to see you in the heels."

Sinker had already pictured the idea in his mind after seeing how much Boost adored the high heels he had worn. Was still wearing.


Boost was gently caressing Sinker laying in his arms.

"Do you really think I could pull off something like that? You're the prettier one after all."

Sinker laughed out loud then, as it was allowed now. To laugh as it felt like a joke. Boost giving him the compliment of being the pretty one even if they looked alike, pretty much.

"Yes and yes. And I would definitely love to see you in the heels and perhaps…"

Sinker had already half planned the outfit for Boost. Seeing it in the shop he had gotten his own wear. Telling then Boost all about the ideas he had for their next session.
