Crossover Warning: This is a crossover story. SVU/OZ to be exact…and it is slash!!!
Disclaimer: Neither Elliot nor Toby belongs to me, but I would love it if Tom or Dick decided that they would give them to me.
Summary: An AU fic about life for Toby and Elliot. It is somewhat OOC, but by blending two of Christopher Meloni's characters together, it was hard to stay in one personality…
A/N: I know that most of you know me for my EO stories, but this is a story that I started on one day, and I just had to keep going. I am not only passionate about SVU, I am passionate about Christopher Meloni's work in general. The character of Toby is Tobias Beecher. He is taken from the series OZ, but he does not have that same background. Toby works for a part of the FBI or CIA that sends agents for long undercover stints to combat the evils of the world!!
Elliot groaned as he reached across his bed to answer the phone. The annoying ringing had awoken him from a very un-Catholic like dream.
"Stabler," he said quite angrily.
After a slight pause he heard a faint, "Hey Elliot."
At the sound of that voice, Elliot calmed down and sat up in bed.
"Hey. Is it really you? Where are you? "
"I'm sorry I haven't called. I just needed to think for a little while."
"That's okay. I'm not upset. Are you coming home soon?"
"I am actually home already. I wanted to come see you, but I thought that I was the last person you would want to see right now."
"Never. I want to see you. When did you get back?"
Before the person on the other end of the phone line had a chance to answer, there was a knock at the door. Elliot rolled his eyes, "Hang on. Someone just knocked on the door."
Elliot got out of bed and padded to the door. Without looking through the peephole he opened the door. What he saw there shocked him to the core. He immediately dropped the phone and pulled the person into a loving embrace. Elliot turned his head and whispered in his guest's ear, "I love you."
"Oh my God, El, I love you too. I missed you so much."
"I missed you too Toby."
Neither man noticed that Elliot's phone was still opened and connected to his previous conversation sitting on the floor at their feet. The caller was confused, "Elliot? Elliot are you still there?"
Elliot took Toby's hand and brought him into the apartment that they shared. Once the door was shut and locked he turned around and immediately took Toby into a passionate kiss.
"Why didn't you use your key?" Elliot asked once they broke apart.
"I thought this would be a better surprise."
Elliot smiled, "It is. But I thought you were going to be gone for another two weeks."
"I was, but we finished the case early and I came straight home. I couldn't go another day without seeing you."
"I didn't think I would make it another day. I can barely manage around here without you. I didn't know what to do."
Toby smiled and kissed Elliot gently on the lips, "Well, we don't have to worry about that for a while. I told them before I left that expected to have a good amount of time off and then not have to take any more undercovers for a while. I think I said it in a way that they understand."
Elliot chuckled and pressed a kiss to Toby's forehead. Toby then bent down and hung up Elliot's phone and slipped it into the pocket of Elliot's sweatpants. The two moved to the couch and sat down next to one another.
Elliot pulled Toby into his side and embraced him. Toby looked up at Elliot and started to kiss the underside of his jaw. The next few minutes found the two had moved so that Toby was lying on top of Elliot and they were making out like teenagers in the back of daddy's Camero.
They were so into each other that the first knock on the door didn't seem to penetrate either of their brains. They stayed on the couch kissing and touching and moaning and reacquainting each other with the other's body. It may have only been six weeks, but it felt like a lifetime to the two men.
"Yeah," Elliot whispered.
"Did you not just say my name?"
"No. You must be hearing things."
"Must be," he grinned. They were about to reengage in the kiss-fest when Elliot heard it again.
"Elliot?" KNOCK KNOCK "Elliot?"
"Maybe I'm not crazy," Elliot laughed.
"Maybe," Toby answered with a short kiss on Elliot's cheek.
"I should probably get the door."
Toby nodded and reluctantly rolled off of his lover and watched as Elliot wandered to the door.
Elliot opened the door and again was surprised at who he saw there.
"Hey Elliot," she greeted. "Are you okay? I've been knocking for like five minutes and you kinda hung up on me earlier."
Elliot's eyes went wide. He had forgotten that he as talking to her on the phone when Toby showed up. "Hey Liv. Yeah, I'm fine. Sorry about earlier."
"No that's fine. Who was at the door before? Isn't it a little late to be having guests?"
Elliot raised his eyebrow at her and chuckled. "Yeah, okay. You're gonna tell me that it's a little late for company when you just knocked on my door?"
Olivia rolled her eyes and stayed silent.
"If you must know, the knock before was a very good friend of mine."
"Oh. Is he still here? I would like to miss this good friend of Elliot Stabler."
Elliot looked over at Toby, who seemed to be in a daze, and laughed, "Sure," he said reluctantly.
Elliot opened the door a few more inches and allowed Olivia entrance to the apartment. Elliot shut the door and the sound seemed to break Toby out of his daze.
"El, baby, who was at the door?"
Elliot's went wide for the second time in about ten minutes, he had never told Olivia or anyone about him and Toby because he wasn't sure how to approach the subject. He realized right there that he would have no choice but to explain the reason behind the pet name and why Toby looked like he was stopped in the middle of something.
Before Elliot could say anything Olivia spoke up, "Baby? Elliot who is this guy and why is he calling you baby?"
Toby looked up at the sound of a female voice, "Elliot who is that?"
Both Olivia and Toby were looking at Elliot expectantly. Elliot swallowed and took a deep breath.
"Liv this is my…boy…boyfriend Tobias Beecher. Toby this is Olivia Benson, my former partner." Elliot closed his eyes and awaited a reaction from someone.
Toby looked at Elliot, "I thought we were passed the boyfriend stage El."
"We are, I just didn't know what else to say," Elliot said and walked over to where Toby was sitting.
The whole time Olivia stood there stunned. She couldn't believe what she had just heard. 'Boyfriend? Elliot has a boyfriend?' she thought, 'I came here to tell him how much I missed him and tell him that I wanted us to be more that partners and friends and he tells me he has a boyfriend?'
"Liv?" Elliot said and broke Olivia out of her thought.
"Um…um…I don't know what to say."
"I know that this is a lot to take in, but I just wasn't ready for the whole precinct to find out, much less the Brass, so no one knows about us," he said gesturing between himself and Toby. "I only told my kids and they are pretty cool with it. Sorry."
Olivia took a deep breath, "Okay. Well, it was good meeting you Toby. Elliot, I'll see you at work." She turned and walked quickly to the door. Before she got there, Elliot grabbed her shoulder and turned her around.
"Liv…talk to me. I didn't mean for you to find out this way."
Olivia stood there looking at the man she loved with all her heart. She was trying and losing the battle to keep her tears at bay. Rebel tear after rebel tear found their way down her cheeks and she couldn't say anything. She shook her head and walked out of the apartment.
Elliot closed the door and turned around. He walked over and sat on the couch next to Toby and held his head in his hands.
Toby put is hand on Elliot's back and gently started to rub soothing circles. Elliot looked up at him and collapsed into his arms. Toby held Elliot as he cried.
"I…I don't know why I am so upset," Elliot whispered.
"It's fine to be upset. She is your best friend and she didn't seem to take the news as well as you had hoped. I can see why you are upset. I will be here for you, I love you Elliot."
Elliot just nodded and put his head back on Toby's shoulder. After a few minutes, Toby noticed that Elliot had fallen asleep. Toby leaned back on the couch and relaxed a little. He was afraid this was going to happen, but still wasn't prepared for it. He knew that the day would come when Elliot's squad found out and just prayed that Olivia kept her mouth shut and gave Elliot time to figure out how he was going to handle the situation.
Toby looked down at his sleeping lover one more time, "I love you Elliot. I always will."
Toby gave him a kiss on the forehead, leaned his head back and fell asleep on the couch holding the love of his life in his arms.
