Summary: Radek coming out to Rodney

Feedback: Yes please. Even if it's bad. Especially if it's bad.


"And where were you last night anyway?" Rodney added when Radek didn't look up from his laptop. "I tried your radio three times and you never answered."

"It was my evening off, Rodney. I told you not to contact me unless it was an emergency." He looked up, not surprised to see Rodney with his mouth open and one finger raised, about to speak. "And a minor fluctuation in the temperature of several currently unused labs was not an emergency."

"It could have been the start of city-wide power fluctuations resulting in the complete failure of all life-support to the city."

"As we are standing here discussing it, clearly this was not the case," Radek pointed out rationally. "Also, we could have simply opened the windows to allow in more oxygen, if necessary."

In the silence that followed, Radek opened his calendar and made a brief note – it was not often that he managed to silence Rodney McKay for more than a second or two.

"Fine," Rodney says sulkily, flinging himself behind the lab bench next to Radek's. "If you don't want to tell me what you were doing, don't."

"I did not say that," Radek said. "You did not give me chance to answer before you started predicting our imminent demise."

Rodney turned slowly, with an expression of such intense interest that Radek was in no doubt that it was faked. "Please, Radek, tell me, what were you doing last night that kept you so interested that you didn't even bother to answer your radio? I'm terribly interested in the details of your personal life."

Radek somewhat doubted that – not that he intended to share these with Rodney anyway. "I was spending the evening with my – I suppose you would say boyfriend, though I suspect we are too old to use such terms any more. It was most pleasant, made more so by not having to leave to deal with inconsequential power fluctuations."

After a moment, Radek opened up his calendar again, and drew a large red box around the day. Shutting Rodney up twice in one day was an event that should be commemorated.
