Charcters/Pairings: Clyde Langer, Luke Smith, Maria Jackson, Sarah Jane Smith
Author's Summary: Luke wants to tell his mum that he's more than just friends with Clyde--in just 10 easy steps!
recced because: There is a criminal lack of Sarah Jane Adventure fic so when one pops up that highlights the charming chemistry between the characters and the fun, wacky dynamic they share, it's worth sharing. Ellisbelle crafted an amusing, light fic that touches on slash, femslash but, most of all, on the bond between the characters that even a few years beyond the series, just sparkles. If you've not yet seen SJA, this fic is a nice introduction to the characters, if you have, this will make you laugh out loud.
“Most of your mum’s friends are gay. Except for Dad and me--not a word, Clyde--I mean, there’s probably some rule at Torchwood saying you have to be bisexual to work there.”
“Gwen’s not. She’s married to some bloke.”
“Jack,” Maria started to count them off on her fingers.
The boys sighed, all moon-eyes and naughty grins. They got that way every time the head of Torchwood Cardiff was mentioned.
“Jack. Ianto. Tosh.”
“And what about the Doctor?” added Luke.
Clyde nodded. “There’s no denying it in that suit.”
“Or the way he kissed Jack goodbye,” Luke said.
“Yeah, but did you see the way he snogged Sarah Jane before he left?” Clyde said.
Luke screwed up his face at the thought of his mum snogging the Doctor and Maria frowned–at the thought of Luke’s mum snogging the Doctor.
“Why would I be?” Maria covered. “Besides he’s with Donna.”
“And sometimes Martha,” Clyde added.
“And occasionally Rose,” Maria finished.
“Those are called hags,” Luke chimed in happily. “Straight women who enjoy hanging out with gay men. Fruit flies. Queer Dears. I’ve read about them.”
