Title: Tea, Please
Pairing: Gen Rob, Doug
Rating: PG
Word Count: 509
Author's Notes: Written for TGWTG_Kinkmeme and the prompt Doug/Rob snarky fluff, with Rob looking after Doug when he's lost his voice again. Gentle teasing about what he must be doing to keep getting sore throats would be most loved. This also works for my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo  card and the prompt Loss of Voice. Go me!
Disclaimer: This is a fanfic and is not true. I don't know Doug or Rob, and I mean  no disrespect to them.
Warnings: Very sappy.


“You know,” Rob said, tapping his fingers absently against the kitchen counter, impatient, as the water for tea heated, “You wouldn't be in this mess if you would only stop screaming so much.” Rob could practically feel his brother's glare burning a hole into his back.

Rob turned and smiled at his brother. “It's true. All that screaming can't be good for your throat. It's your own fault you lost your voice.” Doug pouted and he looked like so young, and so beaten down, that Rob's heart clenched in sympathy.

“Fuck! Okay, I'm sorry! Just, stop looking at me like that. God, you could make Ask That Guy start treating hookers like ladies with that look.” The look faded, only to be replaced by a smirk that was positively evil.

Rob laughed at his brother's deceptiveness. “Oh, you're good. I approve.” He said, fondly. The kettle started to whistle, and Rob hummed to himself as he prepared his brother's tea. Doug, seated at the kitchen table, watched his brother. Doug whimpered pathetically as his brother poured tea into a waiting cup, and added honey and lemon. Hopefully the tea would sooth Doug's throat and take away some of the pain Doug was feeling. Rob sighed, exasperated, as Doug whimpered again. His brother definitely had a flair for dramatics. Doug was lucky he was Rob's brother, and Rob was obligated to care for him.

Another loud, dramatic whimper, and Rob rolled his eyes and practically shoved the tea in his brother's face. Doug smiled, grateful, and took a sip of the tea. His eyes rolled back in his head at the taste. Rob snorted and whacked his brother lightly upside the head.

Rob dreaded the days when his brother was ill. Doug was terrible when ill. He refused to lay around and relax. He'd rather be up and running around, whether it was typing up a review, or following Rob around, driving him crazy. As a consequence of not resting up, within a day or two, Doug was bedridden, his cold ten times worse than it originally had been.

Rob was lucky this time; Doug didn't have a cold. He'd just lost his voice. By....screaming. A lot.

“It's always nice to know I make orgasmic tea.” Doug laughed silently, and watched as Rob sat down next to him. “By the way, I don't care what you're doing, you're making your own damn tea after you're up late...screaming.”

Doug looked scandalized. He sent a truly epic pout, complete with wide, sad eyes, his brother's way. Rob was impressed; Doug's pout/eye combo would put Puss In Boots to shame. He held up his hands in defeat.

“Okay! Okay! You win! I'll make you tea.” Doug smiled, victorious. “But only because I love you, dumbass.” Doug patted Rob's hand, and took another sip of tea. He moaned gratefully and smiled happily at his brother. “Yeah, I know you love me too.” Doug's eyes showed it, too. Rob figured he could handle taking care of his brother for a little longer.

Awwww, brothers! I have an epic weakness for sibling love like this, so that was a treat to read. Plus, Doug totally would be a pill to look after when sick.

I hate to be a bitch about it, but the kink meme rules: "if one wishes to deanon for a fill, they should post it wherever else they want to first, then link the fic anonymously to the prompt in question. this will allow people to still comment on it anonymously if they dont want to out themselves right away."

Thanks for letting me know! I'll keep that in mind if I ever fill any other prompts. I actually did post a link to the original prompt and fill, but in my masterpost. I didn't even occur to me to put that here, in the fic. Because I am stupid.

But thanks again for letting me know.
