Title: Ask Me Why
Rating: PG
Pairing: Jude/Max
Summary: Fluff, basically, about the things Max loves about Jude
Author's Note: Jude!worship, because every so often, a man comes along and steals my gay. So I figured that instead of fighting it, I'd just give in and love it. Also, I just friended a bunch of people today at the Across the Universe Friending Meme. Hi guys! *waves* If you want to read the fic I don't finish, or think I'm awesometastic, do the meme and we can be friends. Yayyyy!

Story Index



The thing about Jude is that the lad is completely oblivious (alright, not lad. Man, maybe. Jude's Britishness has rubbed off on Max, but not that much).

They'll be at a club, Jude and Max, and Max will go to get them some drinks. And he'll come back, and he'll see that in the short time he's been gone, some girl will have already come by to flirt with Jude. And Jude won't even realize it. He'll think the girl is being friendly, making conversation, but even from across the room it's obvious just by looking at the girl's body language. So Max makes his way back, squeezing between people, and he comes up behind Jude and wraps his arms around his boyfriend and kisses his neck. And maybe if the girl is bold she'll stick around for a few more moments, trying to regain Jude's attention, but she'll always fail. Max will sort of smirk at her, and she'll slink off, and later if Jude wonders where she went, well, Max can distract him pretty easily.

Jude is all sorts of perfect, and Max doesn't pretend for a second that he's not completely smitten. He loves the way Jude feels and tastes, loves that from the first second he experienced being close to Jude, it felt so familiar, like finally coming home - and that's completely sappy, isn't it? Jude makes him so sappy. He loves that Jude loves cuddling, be it leaning against him slightly on the subway or discreetly linking pinkies when they walk, or refusing to get out of bed in the morning because it's just so warm and cozy in there. He loves that he'll catch Jude staring, and Jude won't even act embarrassed, he'll just shrug and grin and say something like, "Can you blame me?"

He loves that he feels like a better person because Jude loves him. He loves that Vietnam feels like a faraway place when Jude is around. And when Max wakes up from a nightmare, sweaty and shaking and scared and confused, he loves that Jude is always there, soft and steady. Jude will sing him little songs, and hold him close, and just let him understand what's real, what's now, because no matter what's in Max's nightmares, it's not as important as what's happening right here, right now.

He loves little things. The way Jude always puts the toilet seat down for no apparent reason (Max says it's because Jude's a girl, Jude says it's a habit). The excessive amount of fruit that's always in the apartment - even if there's no other food, there will be apples and strawberries and pears and bananas. He loves Jude's art, and seeing himself reflected in Jude's eyes. He loves that Jude writes letters to his mother every week without fail, he works on them on Sunday and mails them out Monday morning, and there are always funny little sketches on the envelope and around the words. He loves it all.

He swears, Max swears he hasn't always been this sentimental. And if you confronted Max about any of these topics, he'd probably tell you to fuck off. And then he'd go and find Jude, and probably rest his hands on Jude's waist, and the two of them would just stare at each other and exchange a smile. You'd think they'd get used to it by now - they haven't. They're so giddy, so happy to be together. And Max would lean in close, you wouldn't be able to hear it, but he'd lean in close to Jude's ear and whisper, "Mine."

And Jude would look at him some more, and a slow smile would spread across his face, and he'd reply, "Yours." And they'd rest their foreheads together, they'd be nose to nose, and they'd kiss, a small, tender, perfect little kiss.

And Max is so happy he wants to, like, cry, but he doesn't. Well. Whether he does or not is really nobody's business. Suffice to say, he's a happy man, and he figures that as long as he has Jude nearby, he always will be.

I'm a lurker on here and I just wanted you to know I adore your stories!

I would rp with you if you want, I usually play max but I could do somebody else if you want. I'm sick of only being able to find people who just want to rp jude/lucy love with lucy pregnant or something and max standing in the corner with nothing to do
20th-Nov-2007 12:01 pm (UTC)
I'll RP with you. Max/Jude for the win. We can figure out which of us will be Max and which will be Jude. I'm used to playing Jude, so maybe I can switch things up? Anyway, IM me at CraazyCarolyn sometime.

Really? *beams at you* Thanks!

Oh the sweetness! That was so cute! I love Max's personality in this because he's so determined not to be sappy and he fails miserably. ;)
20th-Nov-2007 08:50 pm (UTC)
Max isn't sappy! He just appreciates the Jude! >.>

Thanks :)

Okay, a few things popped into my head as I was reading this, one of which is Max just grabbing Jude and yelling "MINE!" at the top of his lungs like the dad from Fairly OddParents.

Another is them locking pinkies and literally skipping while singing "lalala, la la la, lalala, lalala!"

But despite my overactive mind, it was adorable and overall fantastic! :)

If I can ever find a way to work those images into my stories, I certainly will.

Thanks for the feedback. <3

I love it.

This is one of the best comments ever. "Like a professional." I wish I had my own business card or something.

Thanks so much! <3<3<3!!!

I feel like people must get sick of the cute, because that's basically all I write. I guess not. Thanks for the feedback. <3<3

ok, so. I don't usually comment in the middle of a fic, but the first line of this piece is awesome and adorable and it made me squee!

...thought you ought to know. :-)
21st-Nov-2007 01:22 am (UTC)
ok, so now i've read the rest of it and i have melted into a puddle of goo on the floor. it's beautiful and SO cute and, well, awesome, that I can't really express it in comments, cause it'd turn out to be freakishly incoherent.

so in short, your fic=undiluted awesome :-)
21st-Nov-2007 01:59 am (UTC)
Undiluted awesome? Man, you guys write better reviews than I write stories. I do not deserve this praise.

But thank you. <3<3

::hugs::

I've had a bad day and this makes me feel a whole lot better. Really sweet.
21st-Nov-2007 01:59 am (UTC)
I know what that feeling is like, and I'm glad I was able to cheer you up.

If you ever need more cheering up, or have a particularly good idea for a story, let me know. There seems to be no limit to how much I can write.
