They’ve been partners since JJ came to the 27th Precinct and at first, Drake didn’t quite know what to make of the hyperactive little blue-haired guy. The fact that JJ was gay never bothered him, but the way he dressed took some getting used to. So did his boundless energy and almost permanently cheerful nature.

JJ liked colour and plenty of it, he dressed like he was going on a date even when he was at work, and wouldn’t be caught dead in anything cheap and mass-produced. He shopped in little boutiques on his lunch break, often dragging Drake with him and asking what he thought of various outfits. Drake wouldn’t know style if it bit him, all he could do was smile and say, “Yeah, looks great.”

It was no secret that JJ was obsessed with Dee, much to Dee’s discomfiture, but JJ refused to accept that his love for the man of his dreams would never be returned. He threw himself at Dee at every opportunity, only to get rebuffed, yet he never let it get him down for long, always just picking himself back up and trying again.

For a long time, that’s the way it was. Working together so closely, they became good friends, there was no one Drake would rather have covering his back. They hung out together sometimes, commiserated over love gone wrong, or in JJ’s case, love that never even got off the ground. They cheered each other up, laughed and joked, drowned their sorrows; whatever it took. But now, out of the blue, something had changed.

Finally accepting that he’d never win Dee’s heart, and with Drake reeling from being dumped by yet another girlfriend, JJ had kissed him, full on the mouth. It had taken Drake completely by surprise, not least because he realised he’d liked it. Suddenly everything was different.

They’d been partners and friends for a long time, but maybe, just maybe, they could become something more.

The End


*hugs* Thank you so much for writing this! It is everything that I adore about JJ and Drake.
Thank you, I'm glad you liked it!

I do have one more, from JJ's POV, which I'll try to post soon.

Drake is a bit thrown off balance by... Well, everything about JJ. He likes the guy from the start, but JJ is something completely outside Drake's experience and he doesn't always know how to deal with JJs mercurial moods. I think Drake is exactly what JJ needs though. Loyal, sort of dependable, and always there.
I can't wait to read your other one.

That is pretty much how I see it too.
I'll try to get it posted as soon as I can, but not tonight, it's getting late and posting takes me a while. OCD is useful for some things, but when everything has to be just so, it gets really annoying o_O
*hugs* There is no rush.
Ah, I've only got around 200 pieces to post anyway... Got to post something every day... LOL!
