Title: Energy Patterns
Rating: R for referential mention of sex
Fandom: On the Road with Austin and Santino
Pairing: Austin Scarlett and Santino Rice (Well, DUH!)
Word Count: 100
Summary: Santino crashes and naps, leaving Austin to do the work. Why?
Warning: That referential sex thing. Not a big deal.
Disclaimer: I do not know nor own gorgeous Austin Scarlett nor goofy Santino Rice. This did not happen in real life; not the way I made it up in this fic, at any rate. This did not happen in real life. In short, This is Fiction – and That’s a Fact!
Author Notes: 1) I had this little premise in mind, and it seemed like drabble material. I wanted to try a strict 100 word drabble. It was originally about 120 words; I managed to chop/edit/change it around a bit to make it 100 words; I like the challenge. 2. Austin did indeed use the phrase “a different energy pattern” in an interview after the fact, in referring to how he and Santino worked differently.
Santino Rice is snoring. Again.
Austin Scarlett, seated at a table and sewing trim on a dress, shakes his head and smiles.
He addresses the camera man. “Get some footage of Santino sleeping and leaving me to do the work. Let’s make it a running motif on the show; he does this to me every night.”
Months later, Austin will say in press interviews that Santino napped because he had a “different energy pattern.”
What Austin won’t say is that his own energy pattern (having prolonged sex with Santino every afternoon) is what created the need for all those naps.
