Okay, this is my very first Avenue Q fan fiction and I'm super excited! It's a little late holiday-wise, I know, but i got the idea Monday afternoon. I thought it would be fun to do, since my main idea for an avenue q fan fiction is not fully figured out yet, but I'm having a bit of fun with some of the characters I'm going to use.. you know, i guess you could say that in a way I'm getting to know them better,
And if you don't like Ricky/Rod , slash, Avenue Q, or any musical in general,unless you're giving it a chance, what are you doing ? wasting minutes of your time to insult my preferences?
And of course, "Avenue Q" is owned by Jeff Marx, Robert Lopez, and Jeff Whitty, who are awesome. except for when they write lines that are hard to understand or music that is hard to play
..also I'd like to apologize in advance to any Greek people who read this and yell at my misspellings..
Ugh, god damned phone, Rod thought as he grabbed his pillow to put it over his head. His headache from the large amounts tequila the Bad Idea Bears had slipped him last night wasn't making the Sunday morning any better. Rod had a feeling the phone wasn't going to stop any time soon, so he felt around for it, after all, he was practically blind without his glasses.
"..Hello?" Rod managed to mumble out.
"Rodney, where are you? We're starting to worry!" Rod recognized the elderly voice.
"Ya-ya?! How'd you get my number?" At first he thought he was dreaming, but he really had to pee, so Rod decided he should finish the conversation with his grandmother, "Never mind about that, what am late for?"
"It's Mother's Day, Rodney, I would think out of all people, you would be there.. maybe even with a nice somebody!" She was always thinking about her family's relationships with other people.
"I'll bring Nicky along," Rod joked.
"Go ahead, that boy knows how to eat! Just meet us at the restaurant in an hour."
"But we usually have the brunch at eleven.."
" It's five minutes to ten, Rodney... I'll make sure we have three extra seats!" Rod's grandmother hung up.
That's weird, I hardly ever sleep past nine, Rod thought to himself again. He soon noticed a soft breath on his neck. One that slightly smelled of booze a little more than his own.
"Ricky, wake up!" Rod shook his boyfriend's shoulder as hard as he could, which wasn't much, as Ricky was bigger that Rod. But it was in muscle, which was probably why Rod had been with him for about 7 months with very small breaks in between.
"What?" he was staring intensely at Rod as if he was trying to burn a hole in his skull, "Listen, I promise we didn't do anything except make out, okay?"
"Why the hell are you in my bed then?"
"Kate took my keys," Ricky mumbled under his breath. Rod raised an eyebrow and tried his hardest not to laugh,"It's not funny!" Ricky shot at him.
"Yes, it is!" he nodded while getting out of the bed, almost power walkingto his closet, grabbing a decent looking button-down shirt. Rod put that to the side and digging for pants that would look nice. Ricky shook his head at the sight of this.
"Come on Rod, it's Sunday! It's your only day off, and for once I'm not working today, can't we just-"
"No!" Rod noticed the almost taken back look on Ricky's face. He sighed," Besides, I have to go see my family. We always get together on Mother's Day- I have no idea why we just do- and if I don't go they'll take it as an insult, all ten of them! Well, maybe not my parents and one of my cousins, but the rest will!"
"Then maybe I should come," he replied getting up as well.
"No, no no! It really just a family thing!" Rod sounded a bit nervous.
"What's a family thing?" Nicky, Rod's roommate and best friend, stuck his head into the bedroom. He wore is usual sweatshirt, though he looked a bit cleaner than he normally did.
" I have to go to that brunch thing I go to every year , you can come if you want Nicky, just don't act like a fool!"
"Wait a minute," Ricky was beginning to get annoyed, "I thought you said it was for your family only!"Nicky started to laugh, he knew why Rod wanted Ricky not to come.
"Yeah Rod," Nicky said between giggles," why can I go, but not Ricky?"
"Shut up!" he shot at Nicky between clenched teeth.
"I will if you tell him!"
"Fine, you little.. urgh!" Rod hesitated at first to get out the truth, "I'm kind of.. not completely out of the closet yet, okay?"
"Not okay!" Ricky said. " How can you be halfway out the closet?"
"I don't know, maybe my leg got stuck between the laundry basket and my box of old stuffed animals!"Nicky laughed at his friend's comment, but quickly stopped after Ricky practically growled with anger at him.
"So.. just your family doesn't know?" Ricky asked. Rod nodded, still looking down at the floor."You should tell them today."
"What?!" Rod looked at him like he was telling him to hug the rabid squirrel that was always on the street."Are you forgetting about the whole 'greek' thing? You know what my grandmother expects me to do? Get a good job, get married, and have lots of little Greek/Italian- but mostly Greek- baby puppets runnin' around my house!"
"You can still do every single one of those things!" Ricky answered back, "Well.. maybe not the married thing, but there's such thing as surrogacy, adoption, and one of us getting a drunk chick pregnant then telling her we're gay and getting custody of the kid because the judge thinks she's irresponsible!"
"Fine, I'll tell them.. but only after they all start to leave and then i never have to see most of them again!"
Ricky shrugged,"It's better than nothing.I'm proud of you, getting all brave for me." he kissed Rod on the cheek, and Nicky stuck out his tongue.
"Eww! Gay or not, why do you have to get all mushy in front of me?"
"Oh please," Rod shot back," the only reason you're disgusted is because you've only had one night stands, not a long-term relationship!"
"I don't plan to be in a long term relationship!"
"Can we just finish this so I can get dressed and then we can leave?" Ricky rolled his eyes.
"Yes!" the two answered back.
"God damn it, you guys are like five year-olds!"
Wow, I thought I could make this into a one-shot, but i guess not! Chapter Two will be up soon! So review! PLEASE!
