Sam? Comrade?

I was just wondering if you could come and finish off some paperwork for me in re: "Your recent requisition of the Factory's stock."

I just need a few signatures, and I wouldn't want to waste your time, but it is important to me. To our files.

[Private to Harvey]

Comrade! Guess what!

ACTION?

Right. Of course. Wouldn't want your files to be inaccurate.

Excellent! My door's unlocked.

[And so it is! Prefect does a quick once over of his appearance in the mirror then shuffles through a pile of papers, waiting for Sam to arrive.]

[Sam doesn't think much of it-- honestly, this sort of thing seems so very... Prefect, anyway, that it doesn't occur to him that it could be the influence of a flood. In fact, Sam, in his naivete over this situation, thinks that this is a GOOD thing, that Prefect is officially acknowledging the lack of alcohol in his life and is ready to take the leap to sobriety!]

Prefect? [He knocks briefly, then opens the door]

ACTION!

[And Prefect is standing there, waiting, grinning, with a clipboard and a pen and a pile of papers stuck on top of it.]

Comrade!

[and just like that, hopefully before Sam has time to think about it, Prefect thrusts the clipboard forward and indicates to the top page.]

Okay Sam, you have to initial here, here, here, and sign...

[He pushes the top sheet (which really is for requisitioning gin!) back, just far enough to show a dotted line on the sheet below.]

Just here!

[Big grin, just to be reassuring.]

ACTION!

So, this is it, then? [Sam starts putting his initials down, without really thinking about it. He signs, then looks at Prefect] You're not gonna be buying, or selling, or keeping any alcohol in your room anymore, right?

ACTION!

[Prefect snatches the sheets back and indulges in a victorious fist-pump!] YES! Ha!

[Then he pauses and frowns.] Wait, since when am I not allowed to sell it?

Um... [He stares, suspiciously] That's a bit of an... extreme reaction.

[Sam sighs]

Since I'm not able to trust you around alcohol. We'll talk about it when you've made some progress on that front.

ACTION!

[Prefect grins, pulling out the sheet that Sam just signed and brandishing it at him.]

Not extreme at all, Comrade! In fact considering we are now officially married, I think I showed a considerable degree of self control! Now--

[He moves to rummage in one of the nearby boxes.]

I appreciate that you didn't know we were getting married at the time, but it's still legally binding and if you want out of it then I am prepared to fight you in the courts for the remainder of my life and to the ruin of both of us.

[He produces from the box a plain gold ring, and tosses it to Sam.]

Here, catch!

[Needless to say, Sam's completely thrown by this turn of events.]

I-- we-- er-- what? Hold on, back up-- MARRIED?

[Sam swipes the papers and begins poring over them as Prefect goes to one of his boxes]

This isn't-- this-- This makes no sense! We can't be married!

[He looks up from the papers and almost misses the ring Prefect tosses at him. Sam stares at it for a moment, then tosses it back to Prefect as though it buuuurrrrnnnns]

No! Prefect, we are not married. We don't even have any witnesses-- and-- [He sighs, rubs his temples] Why the hell am I even arguing about this... [No! He's Sam Tyler; it's his job to argue]

I'm not even gay!

ACTION!

From: [identity profile] buywithme.livejournal.com
Well, we are married Comrade, you signed a legally binding marriage certificate, witnesses haven't been necessary for the last seventy years...

[He catches the ring, and throws it back to Sam again]

...and not accepting or wearing the ring does not nullify the fact that we are now married.

[Prefect folds his arms and smiles]

And I'm not gay either, our relationship transcends gender.

Prefect, it is illegal to coerce or trick somebody into marrying you--

[He catches the ring, frowns, and tosses it back]

Stop it! We aren't married!

[Sam does NOT return this smile. He still looks horrified]

No-- Prefect, what you're feeling, it's-- it's some kind of... gas leak or... flood or something. And this is all moving way too fast.

ACTION!

From: [identity profile] buywithme.livejournal.com
Maybe it would be for you to do it, but it isn't for me.

[Prefect catches the ring again, and this time comes over to Sam, reaching out extremely carefully to take hold of his Wardens hands.]

Comrade, I don't ask for cultural sensitivity from you on many points, but It'd be nice if you could respect this one. It's quite important to me!

[Prefect is clearly undeterred by Sam's expression of horror.]

I know this is strange right now, and that's why I had to trick you into marrying me instead of asking you. I don't fully understand this, but I know that I love you, and I don't want that to... get away.

ACTION!

From: [personal profile] bythe_books
[Sam sighs and doesn't throw the ring back this time. Actually he's more baffled by the fact that Prefect's holding his hands]

Prefect, you're... touching me.

[Well, to Sam that was pretty odd, given Prefect's aversion to that. Still, he doesn't want to make his inmate feel bad, so perhaps it would be best to just accept the 'marriage' and wait for the flood to pass]

Alright, alright. That's-- that's really great, Prefect.

ACTION!

From: [identity profile] buywithme.livejournal.com
[Prefect nods earnestly, true he's not crazy about the whole touching thing, like, at all, but this isn't so bad, really. It's Sam, and... he's not really feeling threatened by the contact at least for now, so for now, it's mostly okay.]

That's because I love you.

[At the suggestion that it might actually be all right, Prefect is obviously surprised and elated! He leans in, as though he's planning on kissing Sam on the cheek, then obviously decides that's some contact too far, and just hesitates there a moment before pulling away with a big grin on his face.]

Okay, Comrade! I promise I'll be a great husband!

ACTION!

From: [personal profile] bythe_books
You don't--

[As Prefect leans in, Sam leans back, giving Prefect the biggest of 'WHAT THE FUCK' looks. Thankfully, Prefect doesn't have it in him to go for the kiss, so Sam breathes a sigh of relief]

Okay... Brilliant. Just.

[He backs away a little]

Don't expect a honeymoon, alright?

ACTION!

Date: 2009-09-01 05:03 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] buywithme.livejournal.com
Oh.

[Prefect hadn't been expecting a honeymoon, but now that Sam had mentioned it, It seemed like they were really obligated to go somewhere together.]

...Well, it doesn't have to be anywhere special, we could just go too...

[Don't say the pub.]

...The CES.

[Hopeful look]

We could... count something. Actually, what's actually in the CES, Comrade? Is it a good place to go for a honeymoon?

So, uh... Yeah, alright. We'll go, er. After I take care of some... official warden business.

Comrade, you're meant to be congratulatory. Sam and I have always had an intense relationship, and... yes it's the subtle kind of intensity which requires one party to be tricked into nuptials, but still!

We're married now.

Prefect, tricking someone into marrying you is illegal. Besides, did you two have a witness? If you didn't have a witness then Sam could always claim that you forged his signature.

Maybe where you're from, but where I'm from? This is completely legal, and since it happened in my room, which in all practicality is still a Factory branch?

I can clearly get away from it.

Yes, but the Barge doesn't operate according to the rules of the Factory. The Barge operates according to the rules of the Barge. Considering that there are no precidents for marriage on the Barge (as the one between Elle and Rick was in port), we'll just have to contact the Admiral to find out if your marriage is legal or not.

Why are you trying to invalidate my marriage?

Because you don't like Sam like that!

If I didn't then why would I have tricked him into marrying me?

I do like Sam like that!

You're not in love with him or anything! It's probably just a flood.

I am completely in love with him, Comrade! He's been there for me every time I've needed him, when he's gone I'm devastated, and... and...

...

I thought you'd be happy for me.

Dammit Prefect, I am happy for you. It's just...this is a little rushed.

Does he want to marry you?

Private

From: [identity profile] buywithme.livejournal.com
Well, it's kind of too late for him to be getting cold feet now.

It's not rushed, we've been together for what? Eleven months?

Private

From: [identity profile] unbiasedchance.livejournal.com
Cold feet? You forced him into this!

And you haven't been 'together'. You've just been warden and inmate.

Private

From: [identity profile] buywithme.livejournal.com
I didn't force him to sign the certificate. I just used my initiative to discourage him from paying full attention to what he was signing.

Besides, he said it was okay! After some initial resistance, he is now fully prepared to be my husband!

Warden and inmate is together!

Private

Date: 2009-09-01 01:41 pm (UTC)

He definitely did!

Are you happy for me now?
