6th-Jun-2007 09:18 pm
Jenny and Vastra_Beloved
Title: My Foolish Boy (pt1)
Genre: Romance, humour, smut
Rating: This is R, later chapters will be NC-17 (oh yes, there will be smut).
Pairing(s): Robin/Marian
Spoilers: 1x12, 1x13 (minor - mostly just background detail it would be useful to know about for some references to make sense).
Summary: This is a future!fic. An encounter between Robin and Marian, now married, as they attempt to deal with life, sex, marriage and politics in the twelfth century.
Disclaimer: The characters aren't mine and I am not making any money. I just like subjecting Robin to sexual torture writing them new and exciting adventures every now and again. -_^

Notes: This is the first of approximately four parts.

My Foolish Boy 

“Oh, well, what a surprise, husband mine – fancy meeting you here.”


Marian had barely finished the sentence before Robin had thrust her up against the door of their castle bedroom and crushed his lips to hers with more passion than she had seen from him in a month. He tasted of sweat and heat and the exhaustion of the day – he smelled like court. His fingers were pressing hard into her shoulders, not enough to hurt but enough for her to be able to feel his desire running from his touch into her blood.


When he had finally parted from her, he was breathing heavily, his head bowed, she noticed the sweat on his brow, his fringe beginning to stick there.


“What brought that on?” She touched his jaw with a gentle hand.


Robin smiled, a little sheepishly, and covered the hand that was touching his jaw with his own, “I have missed you.”

Marian laughed, “You saw me this morning.”


“Well precisely,” Robin stroked her hand, “I have not seen you since before dawn, Marian… and that is truly a long time.”


“You have gone for longer than that in the past,” she did not voice the five long years he had spent in the holy lands, nor the stretches of weeks at a time when he had disappeared into the forest back in the days of Robin Hood and Sheriff Vaysey.


“I was a fool,” Robin’s words sounded earnest enough, but there was a twinkle in his eye that spoke of something entirely less romantic on his mind.


“Oh, my foolish boy…” Marian teased, softly, stroking his hair, “come back to me now, have we?”


“If it were up to me I would never leave your side,” Robin promised.

“I know,” Marian’s reply was honest enough.

Robin kissed her hand, tenderly, “I love you.”

“I know that, too.” Marian wrapped her arms about his neck and pulled him close, touching her nose to his.


Oh,” Robin sighed, leaning back and lifting her, revelling in the reality of her, the feel of her form pressed against his own, the warmth of her, the softness of her flesh and the hardness of her muscles. She was wearing one of her green dresses – the one with the pale blue bodice and the embroidery around the neck. The material was thick wool, deliciously rough under his fingers. Her hair was falling out of the pins that she had been keeping it out of her eyes with for the day, dark curls framing her familiar face. And he was struck again by the astounding depth of his feelings for this woman – his childhood friend; his lady-love; his companion, consort and confidant; his wife.


The only person who knew him as well as Marian did was Much – and Much was not nearly so good a bed-mate.


Marian laughed delightedly as Robin deposited her onto the bed. He had joined her there a split second later and straddled her hips, leaning down to rest his arms on either side of her head and kiss her fiercely.


“I have missed you,” he whispered, pressing another kiss to her temple.

“I can tell,” Marian murmured, giving his ears a playful tug and then kissing him back.


He had barely begun to remove his shirt before there was a knock on the door.


“My lord?”

Robin jerked upright, not at all pleased by the interruption, “what?!”

It was the voice of one of the court’s messenger boys, who in turn did not sound particularly happy about having been sent to fetch the Lord of Locksley (a notoriously bad tempered man if called away from his wife unnecessarily).


“You are needed to mediate a disagreement…” the boy’s voice quavered through the door.


Robin groaned, as Marian began to giggle into his shoulder. “I am busy!”


“They say it is most urgent, my lord…”

How urgent?” Robin demanded, doing his best to ignore Marian’s lips as they found his left ear.


“Very, my lord…”

“Well I am very busy!” Robin repeated, fumbling with the catch on the back of Marian’s dress.


“They were most insistent, my lord…”


Marian caught Robin’s hands and gently eased them away from her dress, “go,” she murmured, “I will wait.”


“What?” Robin shook his head, “no! You shouldn’t have to – I shouldn’t have to!”


“Robin,” Marian sighed and sat up properly, “you are Sheriff. Your people – our people – need you. Now go and sort out whatever mess has exploded this time, take care of the people of Nottingham and I will wait for you.”

Robin sighed into her hair, “I hate it when you are right.”


“Go,” Marian insisted, firmly pushing him away.


Robin groaned and straightened his shirt as he scrambled off the bed, then called through the door, “I am on my way!”


“Yes, my lord, I will tell them, my lord!”


Robin turned back to his wife, “I hate that messenger boy.”

“Your hair’s a mess,” Marian slid off the bed and began fussing over him with a comb, only a hint of amusement in her eyes, “what would they think if you turned up in this state?”


“Quite honestly, my dearest Marian, I don’t give a damn,” Robin told her, brushing her off and flattening his hair with his hands, “I hate this – I hate being away from you – I hate how – Marian, you cannot leave me like this!”


Marian giggled, pressing herself against him to feel the hardness swelling in his groin, “I am sure that you will cope.”


“Oh, damn it all, woman!” Robin groaned, torn between laughing at the ridiculousness of the situation and crying at the painful frustration of it all. He kissed her once more, breathing her in, trying to draw as much as he could from the heat and warm moistness of her mouth and the touch of her tongue against his before forcing himself to part from her. “Ah – I should go.”


“Yes, you should,” Marian agreed, leading him to the door of their chambers in Nottingham castle.

“Wait for me,” Robin begged, snatching up the robe he had deposited at the door only a few minutes previously.

“I promise.”

“Do not go to sleep!”

“I wont!” Marian pulled open the door.

“I love you.”

“I know – go!”


Robin kissed her once more and then left, unsatisfied.

LOL this is very lovely, Robin and Marian are delightfully playful together and their relationship has a wonderful freshness to it. It is so how I imagine them married. Poor Robin, you do enjoy torturing him, don't you? This fic made me laugh out loud and smile at the loveliness of Robin's awed feelings for Marian and Marian's obvious love for him (it's nice to imagine they might get there one day, after all the angsty stuff). Can't wait for more, your writing as always rocks.

Also thanks for your darling reviews of my OT3 fic. I have literally spent months on it. I've realised that I can't dash fics off, I have to give them time to perculate and they turn out nicer. I love to read angsty dark stuff but I just can't write it well - I much prefer to write thought-provoking/warm stuff to help people to feel good. I stick to what I'm good at lol. Your reviews always make me smile, thanks also the eyes correction point, I sorted it.

Oh! also (cos this review isn't long enough already lol), I keep forgetting to say thanks for reviewing my wrestling fic. I'm really proud of how it turned out, it's so different to anything else i've written and I'm glad you enjoyed it. You're a star!!

There. I'm done. xoxoxo

you do enjoy torturing him, don't you?

Me? Why whatever gave you that idea... :P

Thanks - I always like to hear from you on my fic. I hope you like the next chapter as much. ^_^

Looool, this was great =D. You did a wonderful job of catching the characters' voices, I could totally hear Lucy and Jonas saying these lines =).
7th-Jun-2007 10:25 pm (UTC)
Thanks. ^_^
6th-Jun-2007 09:20 pm (UTC)
Oh Robin your horny little bastard *giggles*. You did a very good job I could hear Lucy and Jonas voice's while I read it.
7th-Jun-2007 10:26 pm (UTC)
Oh Robin your horny little bastard *giggles*.

Oh, that's pretty much what I was going for. ^_^ Glad you enjoyed it!
8th-Jun-2007 03:31 pm (UTC)
:D I hope you don't mind but I've friend you ^^;;
9th-Jun-2007 08:08 pm (UTC)
'Course I don't! I like new friendies. ^_^
6th-Jun-2007 10:28 pm (UTC)
LOL I have been desperately waiting for this lovely smutty idea of a fic to come along. And it doesn't disappoint. Looking forward to reading the rest =D
7th-Jun-2007 10:26 pm (UTC)
Thank you! The new chapter will be up soon! ^_^
7th-Jun-2007 01:41 am (UTC)
Yay! I'm very pleased to see some quality Robin/Marian fic! You did an excellent job of capturing the characters' qualities and how they could very well be in the future.
7th-Jun-2007 10:28 pm (UTC)
Wow, I'm 'quality'? Cool! ^_^ Thank you - I hope you enjoy the next chapter too!
8th-Jun-2007 12:14 am (UTC)
I definitely say "quality." And I have no doubt the next chapters will be just as enjoyable.

I've loved all of your RH fics (although I didn't comment . . . sorry. I'm trying to work on that).

But what I really like about this one is you let the characters be happy and they just seem so much freer and more open now that their circumstances have changed. I can really see them getting there eventually and I think they're already well on their way. Marian needs to forgive Robin and realize she can trust/depend on him and Robin needs to stop being so jealous and possessive. I think 1x12 and 1x13 showed some positive steps in that direction.

Sorry. I'm rambling now in the way of the fangirl. What I meant to say was, GOOD JOB.
7th-Jun-2007 10:34 pm (UTC)
Hehe - I don't mind you rambling! I'm glad you enjoyed my fic, and enjoyed the others, too. Honestly, in my head, Robin and Marian already ARE like how I write them in this fic. I'm just sort of saying 'okay - we take the angst out of Robin and Marian's relationship, though we leave some of its scars. What do we have left? Right - THAT'S what we right.' (yes, I address myself in the third person when I talk to myself). ^_^

I hope you enjoy the next chapter!

Now normally I don't like Robin/Marion (it's too... canon) but: OH MY GOD! That was AWESOME! I love how you write them!!!! and more exclamation points!!!!!!!
8th-Jun-2007 09:58 am (UTC)
Thanks! A lot of people seem to find Robin/Marian 'too canon' (I do too, actually - it's why I have to suppliment my writing with Djaq/Marian, which is probably about as far from canon as you can get -_^), but Robin/Marian is apparently what my muse has decided that I will be writing for the majority of the time I'm writing in the RH fandom. If you actually take the time to pick it apart (yes, I'm an obsessive) Robin and Marian's is by far the most complicated and interesting of the relationships on the show - although Much and Robin's relationship, the Sheriff and Guy's relationship (well, Guy's relationship with ANYONE, really) and Marian and her father's relationship are all pretty close seconds.

(Next chapter is up, btw).
8th-Jun-2007 08:44 am (UTC)
I read it *Dances*

I liked it. Softly amusing, definetly sexy. Robin as Sherrif, now there IS a thought.

When can we expect Chapter 2.
8th-Jun-2007 10:00 am (UTC)
Yay! The next chapter is up now. It's not NC-17 yet, don't worry. I can tell you when the smut starts and you can probably skip the chapter entirely without it affecting the story (I just had an urge to write pr0n without plot -_^).
8th-Jun-2007 09:08 pm (UTC)
Love your story! I love the way you write Robin and Marian's relationship! And Robin as Sheriff! Awersome! Keep up the amazing work! :D
8th-Jun-2007 11:41 pm (UTC)
Thanks! ^_^
8th-Jun-2007 09:54 pm (UTC)
I would've commented sooner but I was off fracturing my knee!

Love, love, love this! Robin so deserves to be put through some torture. Nobody ever makes him wait for anything, and they should, because clearly horny, annoyed an frustrated Robin is extremely sexy and charming.

Marian is also, as always, absolutely adorable and much too good for Robin! Also what are these lies about Much not being a good bed-mate? You're going to have to write Robin/Marian/Much smut to properly atone you know?

8th-Jun-2007 11:44 pm (UTC)
Oh no! You're poor knee!

Torturing Robin is a favourite pass time of my fanfic muse. And don't worry, the Robin/Marian/Much smut is well on its way - I just have a policy of never writing anything more than four chapters long and never posting anything until I am at least two thirds of the way through writing it.
11th-Jun-2007 11:24 pm (UTC)
The only person who knew him as well as Marian did was Much – and Much was not nearly so good a bed-mate.


Just kidding! I love your fic - you can even make me enjoy Robin/Marian. I especially liked the bit at the end:

“I promise.”

“Do not go to sleep!”

“I wont!” Marian pulled open the door.

“I love you.”

“I know – go!”

It just... works. ^_^
12th-Jun-2007 03:34 pm (UTC)
Hehe - thank you! And don't worry, I'm writing Robin/Marian/Much smut to make up for that slight against our goodly hero and his talent (or lack thereof) in bed. -_^
12th-Jun-2007 12:49 am (UTC)
What a great fic. This is totally in character on the part of both.
12th-Jun-2007 03:35 pm (UTC)
Thank you! ^_^

Poor Robin, lol. They are so cute and sweet in this. All playful and giggly.
