Of Mavericks and Shot Glasses [30 Rock; Jack/Liz]  
TITLE: Of Mavericks and Shot Glasses
FANDOM: 30 Rock
PAIRING: Jack/Liz
NOTES: thoughtsicles prompt: election night
SPOILERS: None
RATING: PG-13
SUMMARY:


*****

Red and blue illuminate the dark room. In Jack's office, they're watching the votes come in like they're watching a football game (or some other sporting event she'd even take a remote interest in... of which there are none). With every vote for Obama, Lemon does one of three things:

1. Screams "WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO" at the top of her lungs and jumps off his couch.
2. Jumps off his couch and does, what she calls, her "I told you so" dance.
3. Shouts out, "Ha! Suck it, Mavericks!"

The third one also involves her jumping off his couch.

Combine that with the fact that they've been doing shots of whiskey every time the votes for their side goes up by five percentage points, and suddenly election night has become rather rambunctious.

"Look! Look at that, Donaghy!" she taunts from beside him on his couch, pointing toward the plasma screen on his wall as the numbers for Obama, far greater than the current numbers for McCain, are flashing. "How does that feel, huh? Huh?"

He chooses not to answer for three reasons:

1. He's fairly drunk right now and he no longer trusts his words. They're fickle when laced with alcohol and have betrayed him before.
2. He doesn't know what to say, because in the process of watching the votes, she's gotten closer and closer -- her arm is slung across the back of the couch now and it's to the point where he can feel the side of her breast against his arm.
3. He's forgotten the third reason. He can feel the side of her breast against his arm.

So he just smiles at her, lets her have her moment while he silently wonders why she resorts to calling him Donaghy only when she's taunting him.

Before long, the numbers for McCain start to rise, start to creep up on Obama. Now he's smiling for an entirely different reason. "Well, well, well... would you look at that, Lemon? Shall I get up and do your little 'I told you so' dance now?"

The numbers have risen beyond five percent, so he downs another shot. Realizing she still hasn't said anything, he looks over at her only to find her eyes on him -- intense, smoldering... perhaps a little crazy.

Before he can ask her why she's staring at him the way that she is, she's knocking the shot glass out of his hand and climbing onto his lap. He watches it shatter but doesn't have time to react, for her lips have crushed against his. He doesn't hesitate -- not that he ever would -- to return the kiss, and slides his hands up the backs of her thighs.

Contrary to what he would have believed, she is not shy in the way she kisses him. Perhaps it's because she's drunk, free of the inhibitions that keep her tightly-wound and sexually-frustrated. There's a clash of lips and tongue and teeth, and as he slides his hands over her, Jack thinks that maybe he'll always invite Lemon up to his office on election night.

Any election night.

Bow chicka wow wow! Bwahaha, I love the idea of sparks being generated by the presidential election. It just seems so unquestionably fitting of these two.

1. Screams "WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO" at the top of her lungs and jumps off his couch.

That just amused me beyond all reason. And then it just got better! Jack's list! AWESOME.

Oh, this was good. And I think that where Jack and Liz are right now, they probably would watch the election together!

Love her dance, and the fact that she jumps off the couch. And that Liz's proximity makes him forget what he's going to say.

I enjoyed this so much, thank you!
