Tuesday - Proverbs/Cliches

Today our theme is going to be proverbs or cliches - taken as literally or figuratively as you'd like. Any fandom, any pairing. Please follow this format to help the code-monkeys:

Being Human, George/Mitchell, ashes to ashes dust to dust
Lost, Kate/Sayid, knowledge is power
Merlin/SPN, Uther/John, a man's home is his castle

You can leave as many prompts as you'd like as long as they're one per comment, and you can even write your own.

If nothing here takes your fancy, then head over to the Lonely Prompts index and grab some inspiration there.

Evan put his fist to his mouth and bit down hard. The pain was almost enough to cancel out his amusement. Well, no, the only way that sentence could work would be if 'almost' was replaced with 'nowhere near'. On the other hand, he was the only one who wasn't snickering aloud, so that was nice.

"Not. One. Word. Major," John said. "This is a invaluable cultural artifact and we are honored to accept it."

"I see, sir," Evan said quickly. Unable to help himself, he added, "It only looks like a vibrator, yes sir."

And that was enough to set the marines off laughing until they were doubled over and gasping for breath with tears in their eyes. John took it fairly well, Evan thought, just crossing his arms in a way that non-to-successfully hid the silvery phallic object under his arm, closing his eyes, and taking deep breaths.

"Major," John said as the laughing died down, "please deal with this situation."

"Yes, sir." Lorne turned to his men. "Okay, guys, you know the drill. Not a word of this to anyone when we get home, you hear? You won't like it if I hear anything around base."

"Sir, yes, sir," they said in unison.

"Good. Let's head back to the gate. Take point, Staff."

The marines ambled off, happily chattering away and making rude gestures to each other. The two airmen waited for them to be a safe distance ahead before beginning to walk themselves.

"So," Evan said after a minute. "Ancient artifact?"

"Yep," John confirmed. He handed it over for Evan to look at. It had a convenient handle at one end, a long smooth section with a rounded tip at the other, and enough of a bulge in between to prevent unfortunate accidents.

"Do you think it's what it looks like?"

"Yep," John said again.

"Hmm. I guess it's about the right size, although maybe a little on the small size." As soon as he said it, it started to grow longer and thicker. Evan blinked and thought something else, and it obligingly became less rigid and more flexible. "Oh, hey, that's nifty. You gotta love Ancient technology."

"It's self-sterilizing, too," John said. He handed over a small booklet, which turned out to have plastic pages, Ancient writing, and diagrams.

"So... is this going in the mission report?"

"I was kinda hoping to keep it for some personal experiments."

"I could get behind that."

"That's what I like about you, Major. Always willing to help your CO out."

"I live to please, sir."

I'll add it to my 'list of things to write if I get time once all these challenge fics (what do you mean, you signed up for three at once) are done'.
