The Lap Pillow Meme!

The Lap Pillow Meme

From TV Tropes: A good way to show the physical intimacy and trust which a couple have is to rest one's head on the other's lap. Usually, the man does the resting while the woman provides the lap, not only because of anatomical reasons but because the lap-owner is typically of a nurturing nature more associated with femininity. Bonus points if she's feeding him grapes or stroking his hair. In some cases this is done between people who are not necessarily lovers, to comfort someone who is weeping or injured.

Or, in the case of the meme: screw the rules, we'll do anything. Maybe they're tired and just found a good place to rest? Maybe both parties were asleep? Hard to tell. All we know is, someone's head is going to be on another person's lap. Shenanigans will ensue.

How this works:
→ Leave a comment with the usual information in the subject line: character name, fandom. Any preferences, including what you don't want, should be included as well.
→ Congratulations,whoever tags your character has their head on your character's lap!
→ Tag around. Please please tag around.
→ Have fun, and be excellent to each other!

[Harvey couldn't remember falling asleep at his desk and being moved by someone. He had no idea what time of the morning it was when his head hit the table. He was reading over several accounts of the Joker's crimes and records of corrupt cops. Ah, the life of a D.A. Now, he felt something warm and comfortable behind his head. Was he in bed? But, wasn't he at his desk?]

When Rachel awoke, she found she lacked memory as well. The last thing she could recall was eating Chinese food while going over files and paperwork. A typical Rachel Dawes evening, really, but she's been awake for a little while here - long enough to remember a thing or two.

She brushed a finger past a misplaced bang to reveal mostly all of the D.A's face. He's so peaceful and vulnerable. This? Was not a typical Rachel Dawes evening.

"You awake, Harvey?"

[Harvey knew that soft voice anywhere, as he looked up and saw his girlfriend's face.]

Rachel? What happened? I thought I was at my desk looking over some paperwork. Did you rescue me from my boredom, by placing me here in your lap? Not that I'm complaining, of course. [He smiled slyly and reached up to touch her face.]

Rachel smiled down at him, her grin tired and raw, as she subtly fiddled with the short ends of his hair.

"I came in tonight. Gotham doesn't sleep." She allowed her shoulders a tiny shrug. Gotham doesn't even know sleep.

"I heard something of a bang coming from your office and you wound up on the floor." Rachel gestured to the desk on the other side of the room. "You must've hit your head." The tired smile returned when she peered down at Harvey.

"You know what?" A lip bite - she's ready to pick on him. "I think knowing when to retire for the night is a great skill to have."

[He sighed and looked up at Rachel. He knew she was right. She was nearly always right.]

I'll make it my New Year's resolution next time. [He gave her a kiss on the chin, then rubbed his head. Had he fallen? He never even felt himself slide off the chair onto the floor.]

Maybe it's a good thing you caught me when you did. What were you up to before you found me?

"Just," Rachel spoke with a sigh, "paperwork. Plus, going over a few things. You know crime won't rest." And neither will she.

Rachel smirked up at him while pulling the loose elastic out of her hair. The two of them on the floor and somewhat tattered from long nights - it's a funny thing. These moments are good, and so is he, and so are they.
gothams_whiteknight: (One last kiss)

[personal profile] gothams_whiteknight 2013-10-16 05:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Paperwork, huh? Just like me then. You're such a hardworking girl, Rachel. [Harvey leaned up to cup her jaw in his hand and kiss her lips. How he enjoyed such moment as these.] I guess we're both workaholics, right? Maybe that's why we fit so well together.

Rachel's eyes remained closed very briefly after Harvey pulled away. Their lids opened to slowly greet the euphoria in her eyes that came with a small smile. "I think we make a pretty good team."

She gave herself a minute to take in their current situation, and let out a breath of amusement. "Even when we aren't working on a case, impressively."

[Harvey leaned back in Rachel's lap and sighed. It felt too good. Even at 2.00am in the morning.]

I don't want to move. You feel good just right here. [He turned his head to give her a comforting smile.] Even at 2.00am we're still on the case, right? Do you want a coffee at all?

[personal profile] rattlethecages 2013-10-17 07:08 am (UTC)(link)
A widen of the eyes, a lift of her brows, "it's two?" Rachel relaxes her face. At work at 2:00 in the morning is harmless. If she were actually home though... that would be something else.

"I do like coffee in the mornings," she smiled at him, crookedly and with an exhausted demeanor.

She took the end of his tie and began to fiddle with it between her fingers. "Let me grab a couple of cups for the both of us. As well as some ice? How's your head."

Yeah, it's two. I guess we're both here too late, huh? Not that I'm complaining being with you at this hour. Just think what we could be doing back home at this hour. [He shot her a look and smirked.]

My head aches a bit. Ice could work.
rattlethecages: mine (finders keepers)

I'd love to do a thread with them during a casual time! Like a lunch break or an evening, etc. :) ?

Rachel mirrors Harvey's smirk at his comment. She's not going to give him the satisfaction of commenting, but she sure won't shy away from showing her amusement.

"I'll see if there's any ice packs. Learn to watch where you land your head, Harv." Aaaand there's another smirk.

Re: Sure thing! PM me if you'd like on details.

[personal profile] gothams_whiteknight 2013-10-18 07:32 pm (UTC)(link)
Of course. I didn't mean to fall asleep at my desk and knock myself out, Rachel. [He smirked and rubbed the back of his head. Ouch. It did hurt.] There's an ice pack in the office fridge? What about near the cold drinks machine?
