Title: It Was Only A Kiss
Author: Vega
Genre: Romance/Humor
Pairings: Ryan/Colin
Ratings/Warning: PG
Summary: Answer to a Lethargee challenge. Ryan and Colin have a series of phone conversations, after the Maltese Burger episode. AU, no spouses.
Comments: I feel really bad about making this AU. It seems cheap to me. Also, I apologize to anybody annoyed by the confusing format.


It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss
It was only a kiss

- Mr. Brightside, The Killers


(ring ring)


“Hi, it’s me.”

“Oh, hi. What’s up?”

“Nothing. You?”

“Nothing, really.”



“You know, we’ve never talked on the phone.”


“Yeah. You never return my calls.”

“I’ve been busy.”

“With what? We do all the same projects.”

“Just stuff. Drew’s show…you know.”


“…You know, we sound like two kids in high school.”

“*laughs* We do. That’s weird.”

(another pause)

“It was a good taping today.”


“I don’t think we’ve ever kissed before.”


“Colin? Are you still there?”


“Are you okay?”

“Yeah, I’m fine.”

“You don’t sound fine.”

“I’m fine.”

“You can tell me anything.”


“That was a stage kiss, wasn’t it?”

(another longer pause)

“I don’t know anymore. Look, maybe we should talk about this another time – ”

“We never talk, and when we do it’s about stupid things. Never once have we talked about anything important.”

“For God’s sake, it was only a kiss! It didn’t mean…anything.”

“Why did you do it?”

“It was…it was a cheap laugh. The fans love it.”




“Look, you just said that we don’t talk about anything important – ”

“I was hoping it was more than just a cheap laugh, Ryan!”

(short pause)

“Y-You did?”

“Maybe I did.”


“Well, what? I hope you’re going to be more creative than to tell me that you’re flattered but that you just don’t feel that way about – ”

“That would be a lie.”


“I said it would be a lie. I…I sort of wanted it.”


“You did?”



“Maybe I should come over there. I think we need to – to figure stuff out.”


“See you in a bit.”





“Hey Ryan.”


“I think I left one of my shoes at your house last night.”

“*laughs* How could you forget your shoe?”

“I guess I just got caught up in the moment.”

“I want my shirt back, by the way.”

“You’re rich, buy another shirt.”

“But I liked that shirt.”

“Give me back my shoe and I’ll give you back your shirt.”

“Nah, I think I’ll just keep your shoe in my enormous horde of strange shoes.”

“Are you implying my shoes are strange?”

“Yes. Yes, I am.”

“Thought so. I’m coming for my shoe, make sure that the door won’t blow up when I open it or something.”

“Okay. Love you.”

“Love you too.”
