Mondays mean back to work!

Hello, everyone. I’m squidgiepdx and for the next ten workdays, I'll be your host here on CommentFic. And what better way to celebrate a Monday is there than to talk about work? That's today's theme! You can prompt anything having to do with work - from someone taking their dream job, to someone daydreaming away while the mundanity of their job surrounds them. Or maybe their normal, quiet workday is interrupted by a camera crew a la 60 Minutes. Whatever it is, if it's about work, today's the day to prompt!

Just a few rules:
No more than five prompts in a row.
No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
Use the character's full names and fandom's full name for ease adding to the Lonely Prompts spreadsheet.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing, or use the spoiler cut option found here.
If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space, or use the spoiler cut.
If there are possible triggers in your story, please warn for them in the subject line!

Prompts should be formatted as follows: [Use the character's full names and fandom's full name]
Fandom, Character +/ Character, Prompt

Some examples to get the ball rolling...
+ Stargate Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay + others, "So this is what you do for work?"
+ Merlin, Merlin/Arthur Pendragon, Modern office AU
+ Check, Please!, Eric Bittle/Jack Zimmerman, Kidfic/Futurefic where Eric takes the kid(s) to daddy's work

We use AO3 to bookmark filled prompts. If you fill a prompt and post it to AO3 please add it to the Bite Sized Bits of Fic from 2019 collection. See further notes on this new option here.

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Check out Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 1 (not very current), Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 2, or the Calendar Archives, or for more recent prompts, you can use LJ's advanced search options to find prompts to request and/or fill.

While the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheets and LJ's advanced search options are available, bookmarking the links of prompts you like might work better for searching for in the future.

Fill Junior/Tani
There’s a smile on Tani’s face as she potters around the kitchen. Not that Junior will actually let her help him cook - when he promised to make her dinner, he’d evidently decided that he didn’t want any help. Then again, considering their respective cooking skills, she’s willing to concede that that might not actually be a bad thing.

But what Tani is learning is that this is nice. This is a good thing. She has a good man in her life, a man who wants her to be happy, yet who’s not going to be a pushover. A man who’s solid in more ways than one, a man who’s not going to cut and run and break her heart.

The fact that he’s also an amazing cook is a bonus.

So she’s happy as she watches him do his thing. It’s Friday night, the sun is about to set and they’ve got nothing to do and all the time in the world to do it. Her feet are bare, her hair is loose and Junior has no idea how little she’s actually wearing underneath her tank top and cargo pants - although from the way he’s been palming her ass every chance he gets, he just might have an inkling.

But then her cell phone rings and she lifts it up and her heart sinks when she sees McGarrett’s face on the display. She tilts it so that Junior can see it before she answers and he’s halfway to covering up their dinner by the time she rings off.

“We got a case?”

He asks it as a question but he already knows the answer. She purses her lips up regretfully. “Rain check?” she asks and he actually grins.

“Count on it.”

Before she can say anything else, before she looks for her shoes, his fingers find her belt loops and he pulls her towards him, kissing her with an enthusiasm and a passion that makes her knees weak, has her gripping on to his shoulders for support. Which doesn’t actually help her case but it’s hard to care about that when one of his hands skates along the curve of her ass and then dips inside her pants and yeah, he definitely knows what’s underneath now.

When he pulls back, she’s a little dazed, honestly, so she can’t even be annoyed at how smug he looks. “Get your shoes,” he says. “I’ll drive.”

Grinning, Tani does as she’s told.

It’s not a nine to five life she has, but right now, she wouldn’t change a thing.

Fill: Drabble, Ros Myers
Ros Myers stretched her legs and looked admiringly at the red shoes she had deliberately chosen. She smiled at the man who had just offered to buy her a drink. “My job?” she said, “There’s not much to tell. Now you, on the other hand, look like you lead a very exciting life. I’d love to hear all about it.”

Flattered by the obvious attention of a beautiful women, the man, ignoring every single protocol which had been drummed into him, was eloquent about his job.

Adam and Lucas, listening in on the wire, were overjoyed with what they heard.
