Fic: Cowboys & Cupids at County - PG, Christian/Chad, AU, Humor, Romance  
So, since LJ is blowing so hard and every time I try to reply to something, it says, "comment not posted", I figured, "Screw it, let's post some of that fic I said I would and then never did."

So here's some C2 fic for my girl, anyothergirl415 - mostly because it is all her fault that I have the image of Christian in the blue scrubs floating around in my head. I can't remember why it is her fault, I just know that it is.

I wrote this back around Christmas when I saw that movie of Chad's, "Christmas Cupid". It's kind of a fix-it-rip-off fic, because I thought the chick in the movie was a terrible person and decided that Chad deserved better - let's say, a cowboy-nurse named Christian, Also, he needed Jared as his best friend, so I fixed that too. My first C2, ya'll!!!

CW RPS - Summary: Chad can’t believe his ex-girlfriend is that awful of a person. Jared can’t believe Chad hasn’t tried dudes yet. Warning: Jared in peach bunny scrubs. Spoilers: Kind of for "ABC Family's Christmas Cupid". PG and 777 words.

Feedback: Bring it. dodger_sister / TheArtofDodger@comcast.net
Beta’d: Nope.
Author's Notes: That movie, “Christmas Cupid” pissed me off. I mean, seriously, were we suppose to want them to get together in the end? Because that dude, Chad’s character, deserved so much better than that crazy self-centered whack-a-do chick. I was affronted. I enjoy how bad ABC Family movies are usually, but this time I was just angry at the stupidity of that man having to spend forever with that woman. Though I applaud the genius of putting Chad in the blue scrubs. He was the only good thing about the whole movie and I wanted to scratch his head. So, I figured I would write a little RPS lovin, fix it up right and give Chad a proper lover, thank you very much. Except, it’s not that character, because who cares, I’m just making it be Chad. My First C2, ya’ll!!
Dedication: To anyothergirl415, because I have been promising you some C2, and though this is very far from the plot I was working on for you as my first C2, it still totally counts, right? All your fault anyway that I keep seeing Christian in scrubs in my head. I just can’t remember right now why it is your fault, but it is. So…thank you, have fic.




“I don’t know, dude, it was just crazy,” Chad said and swung his legs back and forth from where he was perched on the counter in Jared’s x-ray room. “She’s a nut job, like a completely different person than I thought she was.”

Jared spun his chair, pushing with the heels of his feet, using the wheeled stool like a carnival ride. It was an utterly ridiculous image, what with Jared being 6’4” and wearing peach scrubs with bunnies on them. “Did she really accept a marriage proposal from some blowhard while she was on a date with you?” he asked for the fourth time.

“Yep,” Chad answered. “Who does that?”

“Crazy people,” Jared assured him.

“I can’t believe I ever loved her. What was I thinking?”

Jared shrugged. “She was your ex-college-girlfriend. You should have seen some of the losers I dated in college, man. It was shocking.”

“Were they chicks?” Chad asked and grinned at his friend. “I would have liked to have known you when you went for boobies.”

“I haven’t gone for boobies since I was like twelve,” Jared said and then, for good measure, pushed Chad.

The blue scrubs Chad was wearing versus the countertop made it a pretty easy feat for Jared to slide Chad all the way to the floor.

“Dude,” Chad said and glared up at the x-ray tech.

“I told you,” Jared said, reaching down to pull Chad up off the floor, “you should try men for a while. It’s worked out well for me.”

“Yeah, that’s ‘cause your boyfriend is pretty enough to actually be a girl.”

“Hmm, I can’t decide if I am offended or pleased with that remark,” Jared said and then scrunched up his face like he was thinking really hard about something. “So, hmmm, thank you. And also…” and then Jared grabbed Chad and put him in a headlock, Chad’s face pressed up into Jared’s armpit.

“Dude! Come on!” Chad hollered, voice muffled against Jared’s side.

“Just because my boy is prettier than your psycho ex-girlfriend,” Jared went on conversationally.

“Dude!” Chad hollered again and kicked out at his friend’s leg. “Let go, Jay.”

“Okay,” Jared said and shrugged, right before releasing his grip on Chad and dropping him unceremoniously on the floor.

“Um, excuse me?” a voice said and Chad looked up to see a pair of cowboy boots attached to a pair of blue scrubs attached to a rather decent looking, long-haired man.

“S’up?” Chad asked from where he was sprawled on the floor.

“I have a patient here for an X-ray,” the man said and looked uncertainly from Chad to Jared and back to Chad again.

Chad squinted at the man and titled his head to the side. “You the new doc from the fifth floor?” he asked.

“Naw, I’m the new nurse from the ER,” the man drawled and there was definitely some southern-boy in that accent. “Just started like five hours ago.”

“You’re wearing doctor scrubs, man,” Jared told him with an-almost-scold in his voice.

“Yeah, well, I look good in blue. Also, the peach ones all have fluffy animals on them. I like to shoot fluffy animals.”

Jared looked horribly affronted, whether over the man slamming his clothing or because he was insinuating that he wanted to shoot bunnies, Chad couldn’t tell.

“I like you,” Chad told him and grinned stupidly at the man.

“Okay,” the man said and then stood there awkwardly, staring down at Chad who was stilled sprawled along the floor.

“Oh, I’m Chad,” he said at last and held out his hand.

“Christian,” the nurse offered and reached out to pull Chad to his feet.

“This loser is Jared,” Chad told him and gestured at his friend.

“Nice to meet you. Excuse me just one second,” Jared told Christian and then promptly reached over and nailed Chad in the arm.

“So, should I go get my patient then?” Christian asked.

Jared let out a defeated sigh. “If you must. I suppose we should actually get back to work or something.”

“Life is a hardship, brother,” Christian said, then turned and strode out of the room.

Chad was watching Christian go, when Jared punched him in the arm again.

“What?”

“Did you totally notice that he has long pretty hair like a girl?” Jared asked and Chad didn’t have to be looking to know his friend was smirking.

“I hate you,” Chad told him and then slapped Jared’s back, before heading off to the emergency room, where he most certainly wasn’t hoping to see Nurse Christian again later.

Even if the dude totally had awesome hair.


The End

Ahhhh ha hah ahaaaaaaaaaa! This was hilarious and made me very happy.

Also, Jared needs for my nurse husband to take him scrubs shopping so that he can wear manly colors with Darth Vader and Spiderman and the X-Men and Wolverine on them, and also the Tasmanian Devil, instead of bunnies. Because bunny scrubs are lame even for the girliest of girly girls, dude. If I were a nurse I would not wear them, and I dig PINK. So there.

(Also also, since there will be an SpN convention in my home town next June again, I think that there could be real RPF (where some of the peeps are not celebrities, even) set in 2012 in TN where there is scrubs shopping and J&J come to our house for barbecue. Yes. Because this could totally happen. Misha may tag along but he is not allowed to tweet my home location. So there.)

Thank you!! I am always happy to make you happy, darling. I was delighted to see you read my C2 fic - since most people make this face, 80, when I say "Christian/Chad works so well together".

I WANT SPIDERMAN SCRUBS!! I used to have a pair of scrubs that belonged to my cousin when she had to wear them for school and they were the most comfortable things I have ever slept in, but they were just plain blue scrubs - not cool ones with superheroes on them!

If the SPN convention is in your hometown, you could literally have a bbq for other fangirls. And if the Js show up - and if they get drunk enough - bonfire orgy! PS - (just don't forget to video tape it!) heehee

Man, he has awesome hair :D But he's the farthest thing from girly :D
dodger_sister: christian kanedodger_sister on August 3rd, 2011 02:23 am (UTC)
;D My urge to brush Christian's hair is overwhelming. lol

But he's the farthest thing from girly :D

heehee Well, if Brie gets her way and I write her more of this fic, I am sure Chad will find out just how girly Christian is not.
I breathe therefore I write: Chadsandymg on July 29th, 2011 04:24 am (UTC)
Adorable. So good. Love the Chad - Jared friendship and I could just picture Christian's expression looking them both over. Plus: “Yeah, well, I look good in blue. Also, the peach ones all have fluffy animals on them. I like to shoot fluffy animals.”

--- Hah. Made of super duper win!

Hope you consider more with these boys.
dodger_sister: bestest best friendsdodger_sister on August 3rd, 2011 02:32 am (UTC)
Thank you! I am especially flattered after those adorable C2 fics you wrote recently, that you enjoyed my story. :) The Chad-Jared friendship is constantly one of my favorite things to write/read/contemplate, so I am very happy to have you point that aspect of this out. And glad you liked that line too!!

Well, Brie poked me enough, so I have put a sequel to this on my NeverEnding List Of Fics. How does she always get her way?! ;)
Annieaythia on July 29th, 2011 08:35 am (UTC)
You have to write more! You can't end it like this!!!!

And oh, the Christmas Cupid thing.. she was such a biiiiitch, he's way better off with Chris :D
dodger_sister: christian kanedodger_sister on August 3rd, 2011 02:35 am (UTC)
You have to write more! You can't end it like this!!!!

Listen, woman!! You can't just order me around...oh. You realize half of my stories on the NeverEnding List of Fics are from you or Wolfie, or you and Wolfie, right? ;)

And oh, the Christmas Cupid thing.. she was such a biiiiitch, he's way better off with Chris :D

I was so frustrated watching it that I came up with this story idea before the movie was even over. I had this written before I went to bed that night. Christian is sooooo much better for him!! lol Glad you agree.

Thank you, baby!!

Oh, bb! This! This was the perfect cure for my trying-to-post-the-fucking-BB frustration! Loved the thought of Christian in blue scrubs, and Chad and Jared's interactions are just pure win!

Thank you for sharing this. I will now go beat my head against a wall.
dodger_sister: chad michael murraydodger_sister on August 3rd, 2011 02:38 am (UTC)
Thank you, bb! Oh, honey, I saw all the trouble you were having posting your BB - what a crappy time for LJ to go out, during your posting date!

Really, the whole story was all about getting Christian into the scrubs. lol I am so happy to have people commenting on the Chad-Jared stuff, because you know I love their ridiculous, yet loving, friendship. /kisses/

Not knowing the fandom, I still found this adorable and funny. And for some reason (maybe it was the "dude!s) I kept seeing at least one of these boys as Dr. Awesome from "Chuck", which just made it funnier.

Also? I think I've been that patient a time or two, wondering what's taking so long! :-)
dodger_sister: chad michael murraydodger_sister on August 3rd, 2011 02:43 am (UTC)
That you read my story when you don't know the CW RPS fandom is kind of the ultimate compliment! And that you liked it! Thank you.

I kept seeing at least one of these boys as Dr. Awesome from "Chuck", which just made it funnier.

Omg, Chad is the doctor in this and he is so Dr. Awesome - I maybe flapped my hands a little at this idea!

Yeah, I have been this patient before too...a lot. But once I could actually see into the room, and I could tell the Xray Tech and the Orderly who had brought me down, were totally flirting - so as far as I was concerned, I could just keep waiting and watching the show. lol
Deni: Chad - I want YOU!denig37 on July 29th, 2011 08:43 pm (UTC)
You can't stop here! You just can't! O.o
Blame Brie all you want if things like this are the result :-D
Moooooooooore please :-D
dodger_sister: christian kanedodger_sister on August 3rd, 2011 02:45 am (UTC)
hahaha So demanding - everyone wants more! lol Thank you, darling! Well, I generally blame Brie for all the awesome things I do, so it all works out in her favor. :D

Your icon is making me all fangirly-giggly right now! I am all, "Okay, Chad, you can have me!" lol

lol I'm not even a Chad fan and here you've got me reading Mayhem fic!

Jared let out a defeated sigh. “If you must. I suppose we should actually get back to work or something.”

“Life is a hardship, brother,” Christian said, then turned and strode out of the room.


This for some reason is the funniest damn thing. It just reads so in-character it's hilarious.

lol I'm not even a Chad fan and here you've got me reading Mayhem fic!

Haha! Suck it, woman! I mean...thank you! I am converting the world to the Chad-Love, one fic at a time. ;)

This for some reason is the funniest damn thing. It just reads so in-character it's hilarious.

Thank you! I have this feeling Jared works as little as he can at his job and that line coming out of Christian just sounds so much like something he would say...I am very happy you noticed that.
Trigger Warning: Lifematchboximpala on September 12th, 2011 11:59 pm (UTC)
I rarely read non J2 or S/D fic, but I loved your comments on the horrible trainwreck of a movie that was "Christmas Cupid" and they drew me into reading this fic. So glad, because it was hilarious. I promise I'll read Chad/Christian if it is written by you!
dodger_sister: chad michael murraydodger_sister on September 14th, 2011 02:40 am (UTC)
heehee Thank you. I shall corrupt you with the C2, I shall.

I'm not sure if you read the comments at the beginning of the post, or the ones in my author's notes, but either way - I had things to say about that movie. Other than Chad in the blue scrubs and playing basketball behind the hospital like he thinks he is Dr. Doug Ross there was nothing redepemtive about Christmas Cupid. Ugh.

But I am thrilled I could make it all better for you, baby!
