Summary: I cannot possibly give a summary now without revealing too much. Sorry...
Author's notes: I hope no one gets confused. This is one is so good. Oh I'm so sneaky haha

The swing set was red. The child sitting on the swing was maybe six or seven years old. From a distance it was quite hard to tell whether it was a girl or a boy. The clothes didn't give any definite hints, she was not the girly kind with pretty pink dresses and pigtails. Or maybe her dad was just the practical kind and preferred the short, nondescript hair cut and jeans. The small Hello Kitty! backpack laying discarded on one of the stone steps leading down into the garden though, now that was a definite hint.

“The swing set kind of...gets all wonky when she goes up higher. Did you notice that? Maybe you should, I dunno...do something to make it go less wonky.”
He simply groaned and pushed the opened beer bottle into his brother's hand. A futile attempt at shutting him up really. His twin would still talk with his mouth already pursed around the muzzle of the bottle.
“Don't lecture me on child safety, Bill. I have mum calling me every day already supplying me with useful tips.”
“'snot wike you...” There it was, talking round the beer bottle.

Bill sighed in satisfaction after the first few gulps of beer, letting out a rather loud and undignified belch right after it.
“God, please don't!” Tom reached for the gritty ashtray always kept within reach on the windowsill, lighting a cigarette and gracing his twin with a pleading look. “It took me an entire week to convince her that belching in public is not okay. She sees you doing that, she'll start with it right away again.”

His brother's only response was a subdued giggle.
“I'm serious, she's in that...phase, where she copies everything she thinks is cool. Unfortunately, in her book, you and me are the cool people.” Tom watched the thin strand of smoke trail upwards and dissipate into thin air. God, he had missed the acrid and strong taste of cigarettes. He had it down to five a day by now. Five too many. He would really miss smoking.

“It's not like you couldn't use some of mum's help, Tomi...” Bill lit a cigarette of his own. He was probably on his second pack of the day. Lucky bastard.
“What with Julia leaving and...” Out of the corner of his eye Tom saw the uneasy flicker in his brother's gaze, could practically feel that sudden apprehension settling between them. Julia had turned into their own private pink elephant. Always there even though she was not and never acknowledged.

“You know...yeah, that and all...” Bill attempted again but trailed off. The elephant planted its massive rosy rear end between their two folding chairs.
A short silence descended between them. Give the elephant some time to get comfortable.
“We both know why she left...” Tom eventually mumbled, staring ahead, watching the swing go to, fro, to and fro.

“You really think that's why...” Bill took another sip from his beer, giving him that same uneasy look he always had when it came to this particular subject. “...just because, she didn't know which-”
“It doesn't matter, not to me.” Tom interrupted his brother firmly. They had been over this so many times already. Going over the same night over and over again, talking over that pink elephant between them. What happened, happened. End of story.

“She looks more like me, you know...”
“We're identical, dumbass.”

End of story.

OMG, LOL! SHE SLEPT WITH BOTH OF THEM??? So then how come Tomi gets to be daddy, and Bill is just Uncle Bill?

LOL, I can't even tell you how much I'd love to see those two trying to be parents. I'll bet Tomi would be a good daddy, though. He's had practice with being big brother. ^__^
[identity profile] paraboobizarre.livejournal.com on January 20th, 2008 07:26 am (UTC)
For some reason the words Uncle Bill just totally cracked me up! Gawd, it seems so...downright impossible actually LOL

So then how come Tomi gets to be daddy
Oh the reason to that is somewhere hidden in all that backstory to this I never even wrote but that's there in my head. I'm not as specific as you are, truth is I couldn't even tell you what either of the twins are wearing as they have this conversation (for all I know they could be naked ;) but Tom is daddy for a reason :)
And Tom would definitely be a good dad...in a couple of years!

Glad you enjoyed it ♥♥♥

Baby has Two Daddies?
Please marry me. Please.

I don't even believe in marriage as an institution, but for fuck's sake, I must have you. You could be the shittiest writer on the planet (you're not, for the record) and I'd still read your stuff for the simple fact that you're the only person in the fandom whose fics are actually shocking.

I think you told me that I knew just the right details to reveal just enough at just the right time: this fic was pretty much the epitome of perfect timing.

I will give you everything I own (which is not much, though if you WANT my student loans....) Your genius causes me fits.
[identity profile] paraboobizarre.livejournal.com on January 20th, 2008 07:41 am (UTC)
Well, only one really...questions is, who is it ;)
you're the only person in the fandom whose fics are actually shocking

WOW that's quite a compliment - THANK YOU *hugs*

And sorry to decline that marriage proposal but my teeny weeny heart is already taken <333
Plus, Em already married part of my "ficcing brain" (I got part of the humor section in exchange haha) so how's about a merry threesome there ;)

Also, this: “She looks more like me, you know...” is inexplicably hilarious. And by hilarious I mean somehow indicative of the tense, lurking icky feelings between them that get covered up with attempted humor or silence. Is/was there a tad bit of jealousy among the three?
[identity profile] paraboobizarre.livejournal.com on January 20th, 2008 07:45 am (UTC)

I have so much backstory to that little ficlet in my brain it's actually hard to tell.
Per se, there's no real jealousy, probably just that vaguely boiling uneasiness that comes from not ever resolving a big issue like that properly.
They've both mastered pretending in their own way, I guess.

You're like my barometer when it comes to these things, not to mention you brighten my every day *curls up*

Wow, just wow. I love u, it is official. There is just massive amounts of history covered in this little fic.

OMG just pure genius, and on the same night? LOL

awwww thank you for that sweet comment - so happy you enjoyed reading this since I was more than just a little hesitant about posting this one haha it's so 'unlike' anything else XD
[identity profile] ma-chelle.livejournal.com on January 20th, 2008 05:25 am (UTC)
Woah! Didn't see that one coming, I loved it!

The idea of Tomi trying to be a responsible daddy was so cute! For some reason, I thought of Merry and Pippin "Don't encourage it, Merry!" lol

Julia, whoever she is, is an idiot. I would have stuck around and continued to have sex with both of them and encouraged threesomes. But...I'm bad that way. *wink*

"We're identical, dumbass." FTW!

You are really becoming one of my favorite fanfic writers, you know that? ♥

I love the Merry and Pippin reference! God, just the mental image (minus the hairy feet, mind you) is pure gold! ♥

Thanks for the comment - glad you enjoyed it *hugs*

The more I read from you, the more I realize that I am positively in love with your writing.

It really... I don't know, just... every single time, I feel like I've been reading something new.

Thank you.

This one is so special! It's so different and it still has them acting like "them" (and I do not make much sense *rolls eyes*) I'd sometimes really want to know how your brain works!!
And the pink elephant made me laugh ;)
[identity profile] paraboobizarre.livejournal.com on January 20th, 2008 10:50 am (UTC)
The pink elephant is really your fault! You mentioned it in some comment and then I wrote that story the same afternoon and came to that awkward silence and then POOF! the pink elephant was there all of a sudden XD

And my mind is such a seriously strange place, you don't really wanna know :P

aw i love your promised pink elephant! :) for some reason, i can more easily imagine tom as a daddy than bill. hm. but i LOLed..especially since if they ever really have that issue, they won't be able to resolve this by dna-testing since this wouldn't work in their case, right? spooky and fascinating at the same time ;)
and of course, you all made us curious about that back story now :p
[identity profile] paraboobizarre.livejournal.com on January 20th, 2008 05:22 pm (UTC)
especially since if they ever really have that issue, they won't be able to resolve this by dna-testing since this wouldn't work in their case, right?

On the premise that they are fraternal twins, DNA testing wouldn't work - at least, according to my (rather fast) research on that topic XD
The backstory...is my BIG PHAT secret :P

I think the reason why anyone could imagine Tom in the daddy role more easily than Bill is because Tom, so far, has exhibited a little bit of maturity - whereas Bill totally discredited himself with the Jumbie dance LOL

I'm absolutely in love with the idea of both twins being with the same girl and no one knowing which twin is the father. This is beautifully done. :)
