A Rich Fantasy Life [30 Rock; Jack/Liz]  
TITLE: A Rich Fantasy Life
FANDOM: 30 Rock


Jack Donaghy is not one to sit around and daydream -- there are far more important things to do, like purchasing new stock or dictating a letter to Jonathan -- anonymous hate mail to Hillary Clinton -- or blocking Lemon's access to eHarmony and Match.com. But lately he's found himself drifting off during the course of a workday, lolling in fantasies. And what's most disconcerting is not all the time being wasted or even the fact that he only has time to write two anonymous hate letters to Hillary per day versus his usual five. No, what's most disconcerting is that his fantasies as of late have involved Liz Lemon... in a starring role.

Liz Lemon is not the type of woman he fantasizes about. No, Liz Lemon is the type of woman that would be the "cute friend" of his fantasy mate at best -- the type of woman he considers a colleague and nothing more. Yet somehow that does not deter his fantasies. Especially since C.C. has vacated his life, he finds himself thinking of Lemon more and more to the point of it being unbearable. Which was why he asked her on a whim to attend a gallery opening with him, promising her it would not be a late night -- he'd seen the look of fear in her eyes and had instantly known what she was thinking about. That brief indiscretion with young Jamie, the coffee boy.

Speaking of which... that version of Lemon -- the one wearing the low-cut green dress and no glasses -- is the one that most often shows up in his fantasies. He's never once seen Liz Lemon as a gorgeous woman, but when she actually allows herself to put on something as feminine as a dress, she has a certain aura about her; a certain sex appeal that Jack finds irresistable. Which was why he asked her to wear her green dress. This is also probably why she wrinkled her nose at him and reluctantly agreed.

In his fantasies, the two of them are often working late in his office, or bickering in her office over one thing or another before adrenaline and lust get the better of them and they have sex on either his or her desk. Which makes it increasingly difficult for him to work with her (particularly in the vicinity of either of their desks), because every time he does, an image or two from his fantasies will come back to him and leaves him with the urge to flee from her presence (or to act out said fantasy, which could lead to trouble).

He thinks Lemon might know, too, which has made things awkward. But the awkward thing is not that she doesn't return his feelings or that she shies away from the sexual tension -- quite the opposite actually. If he's reading her correctly, Liz has some feelings of her own for him -- what makes it awkward is that neither of them, at this point, feel comfortable making the first move.

Tonight, though, will be different. Tonight he will make something happen. He's made a conscious effort so far this evening to call her by her first name -- perhaps that would change their dynamic if he wasn't calling her Lemon constantly. So they're at the gallery and Liz is over by the bar, flirting nerdishly with the bartender. She's having a good time. Perhaps the shot helped. Before they left, Jack insisted that she do a shot of whiskey to help calm her nerves so she wasn't so tense in a social situation. She'd made him take one as well, and so they downed two shots of whiskey each before leaving for the gallery opening.

Apparently, the shots of whiskey and the two flirtinis she's consumed since they arrived have loosened her up considerably. She tosses her head back and laughs at something the bartender says, and Jack suddenly thinks she's beautiful. He has to be close to her again, wants to be... but something keeps him rooted to his spot, just watching her.

She catches his eye across the gallery and smiles, ducking her head demurely and pushing some of those thick riotous brown curls behind her left ear. Yes, she's very beautiful. He's a fool for not realizing it sooner. When she looks up at him again, there's a certain devilish glint in her eyes. She looks to the side, toward a dark hallway and secluded alcove, before she meets his eyes again. The slightest of smirks curls her lips and she suddenly has him captivated.

Liz leaves her drink on the bar and starts walking away, starts toward that hallway. Jack watches her go, wondering what she's doing and whether or not he should follow. Just before she rounds the corner into the hallway, she stops and turns over her shoulder to look at him. She lifts up her right hand and curls her finger at him, beckoning him. Liz Lemon is not the type of woman one would call a vixen... but that's exactly what the look on her face says to Jack. It's seductive, it's coy... it's a little devious. Naughty, he decides. So of course he has no choice but to leave his drink behind and follow.

He's ten feet behind her, walking down the long, dark hallway -- the unfinished section of the gallery, off-limits to tonight's guestlist. The word 'forbidden' flits across Jack's mind briefly and he finds himself a little bit more aroused. Her high-heeled shoes (the ones she desperately did not want to wear) click sharply on the gallery's marble tile, echoing off the walls. She slows her walk and Jack catches up to her. The moment is perfect, almost slow-motion kind of perfect, as Jack reaches out and grasps her arm, just above her elbow. He spins her to face him and that devilish smirk is back, but only for a moment before Jack seizes her lips with his own.

Liz backs sharply into the wall and drags Jack with her -- he reaches his hands out to catch them, so they don't slam into the wall too hard. She has one hand clenched around his tie and one around the back of his neck. His hands settle on her hips as he leans against her. The kiss breaks ever so briefly and they stare at each other -- even in the dim light, the look in those big doe eyes of hers is smouldering. The message in them is clear -- it was time to stop dancing around whatever was brewing between them.

She yanks him back down to her lips by the tie and his hands slide down to the hem of her dress, which slices her at mid-thigh. She'd ditched the ugly black nylons for the evening and for that he was glad -- he didn't need any more barriers thrown between them, flimsy as that one would have been. He slides his fingers back and forth across her thigh, just under the hem of her dress and she nods against him, gives him whatever permission he needs.

Quickly, before either of them can change their mind, he grabs her by the backs of her thighs and hoists her up against the wall. She moans into his mouth and wraps her arms around his neck while her legs curl around his waist. With one hand cupping the back of her left thigh, holding her up, he lets the other one wander across the hem of her dress, to her inner thigh, and up. His fingertips find damp cotton and Liz breaks from his lips to moan, tipping her head back against the wall.

He unbuttons and unzips his pants as quickly as he can without dropping her, and ponders setting her down long enough to take off her underwear. When she shakes her head against him and tells him she doesn't want him to let her go, he shoves her underwear roughly to the side and thrusts into her. She cries out in ecstasy and throws her head back again, not even flinching when it hits the wall. Jack covers her exposed throat with kisses and drags his lips down to her collarbone, then to the soft mounds of flesh peeking out from the low V of her dress. His tongue trips along the valley between her breasts and she gasps, moving against him. "Jack..."

"Liz," he breathes back against her flesh.

"Jack... Jack..."

"Jack? Jack!"

Jack startles at the hand suddenly waving in his face and he blinks rapidly, his head swimming. "I'm sorry Lemon... what?"

Liz Lemon quirks an eyebrow at him, her jacket folded over her left arm, which rests across her midsection. His eyes take note of the green dress. "I asked you if you were ready to go, and you just stared at me. For like a minute-and-a-half," she frowns. "It was kinda creepy." Then she sighs in a decidedly unfeminine manner, blowing a puff of air toward her bangs. "Y'know, if you don't want to go to this thing, you could at least do me a favor and tell me so I can get out of this dress. It makes me uncomfortable."

While he fights desperately not to conjure ways to get her out of her uncomfortable dress, he replies smoothly, "Why? You look lovely." And he tries not to let his eyes linger on her cleavage for longer than three seconds.

"Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of," she nods, and she has caught him staring. "I'm afraid that my 'lovelies' look a little too lovely in this dress."

"Nonsense Lemon, you look great. We'll go."

"Ugh, fine. But I want to be home by midnight."

"Will you turn into a vegetable at that time?" he can't resist teasing her. He still hasn't gotten up from behind his desk. He can't right now. He needs a moment.

She just rolls her eyes and starts toward the door. Jack lets his eyes travel down her spine, to where the short dress ends, and for what feels like the second time that night he's grateful that she ditched the black nylons. Sometimes it pays having a rich fantasy life. This could be a very interesting night.

"Are you coming?!" she yells back at him.

Jack looks down at his lap, then tilts his head and purses his lips, getting up and following after her.

Very interesting indeed.

This was awesome! Also, as of today it is official. I have now read all of your Jack/Liz fic with the exception of the one with the S2 spoilers. They're all really great and I think you capture each character perfectly, especially Jack. Can't wait for more fics!

Awww, thank you so very much! That means a lot to me; I find Jack to be a really hard character to write because he's so unpredictable, haha. Glad you think I'm doing okay so far.

There will definitely be more fics soon! :)

Hee, oh I love it!!! I especially love that he couldn't take his eyes off of her cleavage there at the end. And that he couldn't get up from his desk. And that he was even more fond of the real Liz Lemon than the vixen Lemon that was in his fantasy. LOVE!

or blocking Lemon's access to eHarmony and Match.com

This was awesome. Jack and Liz having sex against a wall has officially become the hottest thing ever in my mind. You should write a Part 2 with Liz fantasizing about Jack. *cough* What? Who said that? *looks around awkwardly* xD

I've gotten kinda obsessed with the idea of Jack and Liz doing it against a wall, LOL, because I firmly believe that Jack wants to teach her about sex standing up. *nods*
