Title: Christmas Prompt:  Misappropriated Mistletoe
Characters: Beck, Heather
Rating: PG
Chapters: 1/1

Disclaimer: No, no, even if I ask Santa nicely, I probably still won't own Jericho, just like I don't own it now.  (Bummer).  Just having a little fun - not profit - and all characters will be returned safe and sound.

-------------------------

Heather was already in bed when Beck got home. He walked into the bedroom and gave her a tired smile. She grinned back, her eyes alight with laughter and mischief, a look that made him perk up, in more ways than one.

"What?" he asked.

"Have you been to city hall today?"

"No-o-o-o-o," he drawled cautiously, as he started stripping off his uniform.

"It's all decorated for Christmas," she burbled happily.

"Well, I heard that - and that all the mistletoe has gone missing."

Heather blinked at him. "Missing?"

"Yeah, the decorators were pretty pissed. Thank God that's Jake's problem." He paused, arrested by the too-innocent look on her face. He gave her a searching look. "Okay - what do you know?" he sighed.

Heather sat up, and then crawled down the bed to him. Until Heather, he had never known how sexy flannel pajamas could be. His mouth went dry as she knelt on the bed in front of him and snagged the waistband of his pants to tug him closer.

"Let's just say there's gonna be a lot of games of hide and seek in Jericho tonight. And you know what you have to do when you see mistletoe, right?" she purred. "You have to kiss whatever's beneath it."

Beck blinked at her, and caught a glimpse of green through a small gap in her pajama top.  He couldn't help but grin at her playful look.

"Did you have to steal every piece of mistletoe?" he asked.

"Not just me!" Heather protested. "Besides, I don't know what the decorators were thinking - there was an awful lot of it just lying around, doing nothing."

He grinned even wider as she slid her arms around his neck, and he smoothed his hands down her back to her hips. "I think it was meant for the whole town," he said, trying to achieve a scolding tone and failing miserably.

"Well, whatever survives the night will be returned," Heather promised earnestly, her grin wicked.

Beck bent to kiss her and paused. "Exactly where do you have it all hidden?"

"That's the best part of mistletoe," she winked as she stretched up, her lips hovering close to his, "it's always a surprise when - and where - you find it."

This is so freaking adorable and I love it to pieces.

I always thought that mistletoe would be much more effective if it wasn't hung . . . lol.

Quotes

"All right," said Susan. "I'm not stupid. You're saying humans need...fantasies to make life bearable."

REALLY? AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE.

"Tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Little --"

YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES.

"So we can believe the big ones?"

YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING.

-- Susan and Death in Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

"And no practical definition of freedom would be complete without the freedom to take the consequences. Indeed, it is the freedom upon which all the others are based."

-- Lord Vetinari in Going Postal by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

They thought the Library was a dangerous place because of all the magical books, which was true enough, but what made it really one of the most dangerous places there could ever be was the simple fact that it was a library.

-- Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

As a wizard, it was something that Ponder had only before encountered in acorns: a tiny soundless voice which said, yes, I am but a small, green, simple object - but I dream about forests.

-- Interesting Times by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

In the 24th century, there will be no hunger. There will be no greed. And every child will know how to read.

-- Gene Roddenberry, as repeated by Jonathan Frakes in the documentary How William Shatner Changed the World

---------------------

We've got two lives, one we're given and the other one we make
And the world won't stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, and what your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard way.

-- Mary Chapin Carpenter, The Hard Way from the album Come On, Come On

---------------------

Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want.

-- John Mayer, Waiting on the World to Change from the album Continuum

---------------------

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says, "I'll try again tomorrow."

-- Mary Anne Radmacher, as seen in Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Tales to Inspire

---------------------

I never loved the soldier
Until there was a war.
Or thought about tomorrow
'til my baby hit the floor.
I only talk to God
When somebody's about to die.
I never cherished freedom
Freedom never cries.

-- Five for Fighting, Freedom Never Cries from the album Two Lights

---------------------

It may sound absurd: but don't be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed: but won't you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream

-- Five for Fighting, Superman (It's Not Easy) from the album American Town

---------------------

Had a dream last night took a time travellin' ride
Back to my childhood where those monsters reside
They snack on innocence and dine on self-esteem
But I like to be in touch with what makes me scream
Vampires, mummies and the Holy Ghost
These are the things that terrify me the most.
No alien, psychopath or MTV host
Scares me like vampires,mummies and the Holy Ghost.

-- Jimmy Buffett, Vampires, Mummies and the Holy Ghost from the album Fruitcakes

---------------------

"I want to believe that... the dead are not lost to us. That they speak to us... as part of something greater than us - greater than any alien force. And if you and I are powerless now, I want to believe that if we listen, to what's speaking, it can give us the power to save ourselves."

-- Fox Mulder, The X-Files from the episode The Truth, pt. 2
