“I’m in advertising,” said Sidney, easily. “Here for work.” They hadn’t talked about this, but Sidney was a planner by nature, and had worked out a backstory on the flight, complete with a googled list of professional qualifications, extended family, hobbies, and pets. Not that he planned to hand over a resume before fucking, but it was the principle of the thing, being prepared. Geno was probably winging it. Sidney wondered what he would come up with.
“I play hockey,” said Geno. “In the NHL.” The little shit. Sidney glared. Two could play at that game.
It’s been a while since I recced a Sid/Geno fic, which is craaazy since that’s basically all I read. This fic, though, LORDY this fic is hot with a side of scorching. It’s a role-playing fic, and I really didn’t know what to expect, but my goodness, I loved it so much, I read it twice in a row and then the author released a coda (chapter 2) that made me have to go through and read the entire thing again, not that I minded. What I really enjoy about this story is that both Sid and Geno get out of their comfort zones and work toward the pleasure of their partner. I also apparently have a kink for bossy!Sid??? Who knew!? If you love this pairing, this is a wonderful read. Make sure to leave a comment for the author, who, for some reason, thinks they don’t have a great grasp of the English language and are DEAD WRONG because this piece is beautifully written and I need 100k more words, please and thank you.
