LINK TO FIC: Ending

QUOTE:
They were too close but he guessed that was the intention, maybe not in the start but it became that way pretty fast. Sarge eyed him, that appraising way he’d look over a situation and then bark out orders that usually led straight to their objective, the way he summed new guys up before they’d even spoken like he’d got some kind of in-built on-board bullshit detector. John knew what was coming was one of two things: he’d either sit back down and pour another glass and John would let the ice cubes melt on the floor or it would go in the other direction.

It went the other way. Sarge kissed him, hard, free hand going up to the back of his head to hold him there, hold him in like John was going to protest when he’d stopped protesting at least a couple of years before that. He kissed him back, all bourbon and maudlin self-pity, taking two fistfuls of shirt at the small of Sarge’s back. The door was already locked, he’d known that from the start so maybe he’d known this was the way the night would end all along when Sarge stepped back and pulled the chair back upright, pushed him firmly down onto it by his shoulders and then went down on his knees.

WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
My goodness, this was hot! “Ending” takes place after the movie. It's John's birthday, and he spends it with Sam who is curious and wants to know what John did on his last birthday. And so John remembers. Remembers how he and Sarge came to let off some steam after missions. How this went on for years and years. Them both spending more and more time together, understanding each other, needing each other. It's a wonderful, well-written fic with great characterizations of John and Sarge. I love the chemistry between the two. It has a bittersweet touch to it because, unfortunately, in this fic Sarge stays dead. There is no alternate ending to the movie. In the end it's just John who's left.
