Excerpt: Sheppard shrugged off the reference. "Are you any good?"
"At acting?" David asked, eyebrow raised. "I keep getting jobs, which I suppose means something."
"Be McKay," Sheppard said. "I want to see."
David frowned and then slowly his posture changed, shoulders reaching out and back, hands loosening up, eyes narrowing. "Shouldn't you be off somewhere attempting to plan or strategize or something? I mean I can understand the urge to rely on my amazing intellect but even I am not above a completely unneeded backup plan."
Sheppard's eyes bugged out more than just a little. “Okay, okay, stop,” he said, and David leaned again against the railing, his body relaxing, his lips quirking inevitably upward into a smirk.
Oddly, he thought Sheppard's reaction was one of the best compliments he had ever received.
“No, really, you can stop,” Sheppard said.
David blinked. “Oh, right, the smugness. No, right now, that’s all me.”
Sheppard looked like he couldn’t decide between being disturbed and amused, which seemed about right.
“You’re not what I would have expected,” he said, after a minute. “I mean, not that I would have expected any of this.”
