Author's notes: Another little thing. A bit of Mark/Roger fluff, dedicated to my math buddy.


Roger awoke warm, but didn't open his eyes. He was reveling in the events of last night, where he and Mark had somehow gotten together. He could feel Mark curled up next to him; Roger had his arm wrapped around his shoulder's. Now that he thought about it, he could feel Mark moving, and an even warmer sensation once and awhile, glancing against his cheek. Once he noticed this feeling, he noticed the slight pulling on his eyelashes that occurred afterwards. Smiling a bit, he opened his eyes, to find Mark, on his side looking at him, with one hand next to his own face, in fact, near his eye. "Mark, what are you doing?"

"I'm uh…" Mark pulled his hand away quickly, blushing furiously. "I was…just…petting your eyelashes."

"You were what?"

"I was petting your eyelashes." After he finished the sentence Mark seemed to realize that he needed to elaborate more in order to explain himself to Roger. "They're really…long, and…soft. I just kind of had to…pet them."

Roger thought about this for a moment, and then he just shook his head with a little laugh. "You are so weird…" He trailed off. "Come on let's just go back to sleep." He watched as Mark tucked the stray arm back under his pillow, and closed his eyes, snuggling just a bit closer to him.

He couldn't resist. He brought his hand up from under his blanket, and brought it up to Mark's face, lightly fingering his barely visible eyelashes as though they were his guitar strings.

But it wasn't lightly enough. Mark's eyes opened, in a smirking blue manner. "Roger, what are you doing?"

"I was just…"Roger trailed off again, smirking a little. "I wanted to try. I don't really get why you were doing it."

"That's because I have short barely visible eyelashes. You have long dark eyelashes…and they're soft."


"So that makes them utterly more…fuckable"

Roger laughed loudly, getting a kick out of this confession. "You are so weird."

OK, so yeah. This Roger most definitely has to be seen as Adam Pascal because, I don't know if you've noticed, but his eyelashes are some of the most gorgeous things on the planet. So yeah. He's dreamy. Like you hadn't noticed.
