lunabee34 (Lorraine) - Waist Deep and Sinking
Matt's not scared exactly. More like he can't quite shake the adrenaline rush of the fire sale even weeks later. He still feels the slick metal of a gun in his palm, the bright starburst of his knee shattering, the acrid burn of smoke in the back of his throat. Matt wonders if this is what McClane's felt like for the last twenty years—this itchy restlessness, his body's constant demand to be the fuck ready.

He doesn't ask.

Severina - Time Waits for No Man
The last thing he remembers saying, as they wheel him on a gurney straight into an operating room, is "But I don't get sick."

Severina - Come Together
Matt wouldn’t say he’s ignoring the insistent pinging of the computer, exactly. He’s just got better, more important things to do – things like refilling the ice cube trays and reorganizing all the dishes in the kitchen cupboards and arranging all of McClane’s books alphabetically by author and genre.

megyal - Thicker Than Water
Catherine Wilson called her younger brother to wish him a Happy New Year, because heavens knew that he needed some kind of damned cheer in his life... and this kid answered his phone.

"That guy?" he asks dubiously.

"He's up to something!" Matt insists. "I think he's casing the joint!"

"Casing the…." John shakes his head. "You're watching too many old crime movies, Matty. You're now officially banned from my Cagney collection. Bogey's out, too."

persnickett - Pink Frosting and Other Potentially Fatal Ventures
"Associating with a McClane on a major holiday is just flirting with disaster.”
“Holiday? It’s not even the weekend.”
There are still petals drifting down out of the air, and what’s left of a pink and white rose sticking haphazardly up out of the side of Matt’s hair. He looks slightly bewildered, but doesn’t flinch away, as John reaches up and combs his fingers as gently as he can through Matt’s ash-tangled mop to come away with the clinging bloom. 
“Happy Valentine’s day, kid,” John says, holding out his burnt offering.

Severina - Definitely Not Cursed
"March 18th is a great day," he says when they're heading out the door, after John has leaned down to kiss Lucy, to lay a big paw gently on his granddaughter's head. "March 16th? Awesome day, perfect for childbearing. But your daughter can't give birth on either of those days, oh no. She's a McClane. She has to have her baby on—"

"I'm not fucking cursed, all right?"

They’d saved the country, dammit. They deserved some fucking fun, and they were too lame to have any.

“That’s it,” Matt said, making a decision. “We’re going to do this, McClane. No excuses. We are too awesome to be so boring.”

lunabee34 (Lorraine) - Coming Home
Matt's not that guy. He's really not, no matter what McClane said. Staying alive is a very special motivator, and saving McClane, saving Lucy—that was just another kind of saving his own ass. So how he ends up here on the floor of Citibank watching his blood sink into the carpet, Matt doesn't exactly know.

Severina - It's All Fun and Games Until...
After the fire sale, John and Matt promise to stay in touch -- a promise that neither of them keeps, even though memories of each other are keeping them up nights. But when Matt witnesses a violent crime, his safest option is to stay with McClane until the perpetrator is caught. This could be great for both of them... or it could be another of John McClane's Very Bad Ideas.

persnickett - In the Summer, In the City
This is what his mother used to do whenever she had something truly suck-tacular to tell him. Or, actually, she used to make tea. But it’s way too fucking hot out for that shit. Which is why Matt is clutching a tinkling glass of lemonade in each hand when he steps into the garage.

The sweat is still cooling on his body when Matt rolls onto his side and slaps at John's chest with the back of his hand. "So," he says, "you wanna get married?"

Severina - Anheuser-Busch Expects a Thank-You Card -
He brings his hand up closer to his face, squints in the dim light. “Okay, so I have a beer tab on my finger. That’s… weird,” he says. He frowns over at John. “Why do I have a beer tab on my finger?”

When John’s eyes widen, Matt remembers everything.

Severina - Slice of Paradise
They have a morning routine. The alarm beeps. John tells Matt to turn it off. Matt continues sleeping. John reaches across Matt's prone body to slap at the clock, all the while muttering that if Matt isn't going to turn off the damn alarm then he shouldn't insist on having it on his side of the bed. John flops onto his back, Matt rolls over and says something sarcastic.

The routine is comforting. When something throws it off, John feels off-kilter all day.

Like today.

persnickett - Something Blue
For the first little while, he was buying it.

But what John was now pretty sure was a relatively crude ruse to avoid the conversation altogether, was starting to get old. Or maybe that was just him, because never once in his life had John thought he’d be complaining about something like this, but every time he tried to talk to the kid about it, they ended up having sex instead.

Severina - Scars
"I know where you got this one, because I was there," he says, "watching you be completely insane and awesome. Or maybe that should be insanely awesome. I don't even know anymore." He licks a long slow swath of the wound with his tongue, smiles when John shivers beneath him, before pulling back to touch the other, older scar with the tip of his finger. "But what about this one?"

Severina - Moving Day
But by the end of the second month, he'd come to understand that what he'd thought was just a bit of a crush on the larger than life cop that had saved his life was actually… probably… definitely… love. That was when he knew he had to move. Because that larger than life cop? Straight. Straighter than straight. And Matt Farrell was a lot of things, but he wasn't a fool.

Severina - (Not The) Tequila
Because one moment he is joking with Matt about being too old now to stay up past midnight on a work night and the next Matt is somehow straddling his lap, his warm hands cupping his face and—

"Stop that." So serious, so solemn, those big brown eyes wide and unblinking. "You're not too old. For anything."

torakowalski - Just That Simple Thing
She rolled her eyes. He seemed to make her do that; maybe that was why they'd never hooked up. "Oh, whatever. Dad doesn't do Christmas anyway."

"For religious reasons?" Matt asked, surprised; he'd have thought that an excuse to get domestic with an electric carving knife would have been right up John's alley.

"For health and safety reasons."

HalfshellVenus - Subtextual Valentines
Sometimes John buys Matt stuff. He'll be out on a case and pass by a store where something catches his eye, and on the way back to the car he'll stop in and get it. A plastic Darth Vader (just because), a T-shirt that says "Byte Me," and a squishy Linux penguin have all made their way home. Even if it's just a Snickers bar, Matt's obvious delight makes it all worthwhile.

This is how John finds himself staring at a display of Russell Stover chocolate-covered strawberry-cream hearts at a Rite Aid store, caught between what kind of message they might send and the fact that he's pretty sure Matt would go nuts over them.

“It makes sense,” Matt said, nodding a little to himself without looking up. “Meeting up like this. You go through something like that with somebody and they’re…a part of your life after that, you know?”

Matt waited a beat until they were looking at each other again before he finished. “It’s…indelible.”

healingmirth - John McClane Can Slam a Revolving Door
"I don't know any of the people who've got you so riled up, but if they're anything like the blowhards in real life, you are never going to change their minds. They're like bullies, and nothing winds up a bully like a victim who tries to fight back. I get that you think this is important. But you're going off all Don Quixote, and that is not a good call. If really you want to help? Stop it. Just be here, with me, in the real world. Do your damn job and help some real people. Those guys can go fuck themselves."

That was probably not Matt's cue to tip up and kiss John on the lips.

svilleficrecs - WPM
They don't cuddle, exactly. Matt puts his head in John's lap sometimes and John rests his hand on the kid's waist or his soft hair. Sometimes, John's the one who lies down. Matt likes resting his hand on John's arm and John falls asleep there every time, wakes up with his head on a pillow and and the sound of Matt's quickly tapping fingers in his ears.

John's growing to love that sound.

There's a little edge to that voice, a note of hysteria that's strangely familiar. "I secured the line, it makes the connection shitty.

Matt's asleep by the time John guides the boat into dock. The life vest has hitched up on his chest so blue and black nylon completely swallows his neck, as well as half of his chin. His bangs have fallen down over his eyes, and John thinks, He should look young to me.

“You're right about one thing, though,” John said, pulling back and looking into Matt's eyes. “I'm too damned old to be anyone's boyfriend, kid.”

Matt blinked at him, a little dazed and obviously needing a few moments to process human speech. “Uh, okay,” he said slowly, “I'm not sure what that means. Is that your way of saying you don't want to go steady?”

“It's my way of saying,” John gritted, “that I'm less than five years from retirement and most of the time I wish I was retired yesterday. It's my way of saying that I have boots older than you.”

“You want to fuck with your boots on, that's cool,” Matt said, leaning in to nuzzle John's neck. “I'm good with kinks as long as they don't involve live animals. After all, I gotta have some standards.”
