two bryce larkin sorta centric ficlets (chuck and chuck/spn), for that otp meme  
So, here starts all the fic I will have to post for pnr who guessed 3/4 of my ships, lol. These be the first two. Also first time writing Chuck at all so er. Nervoooous. But, THEY'RE ACTUALLY FICLETS! I didn't write epics!

Title: One Of Us Must Know
Pairing: Bryce/Sarah
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 305
Summary: It’s not like he minds not knowing. It’s just a name, after all, and if she sees fit not to share it, why should he want to know?
Spoilers: for Chuck 3x08.
Disclaimer: Chuck isn't mine. Bryce would be a regular.
A/N: for pnr who wanted Bryce/Sarah with him finding out her name. Title stolen from Bob Dylan.

It’s not like he minds not knowing. It’s just a name, after all, and if she sees fit not to share it, why should he want to know? He loves her as she is, or as he knows her, and if maybe it’s just a part of her that he’s allowed to see, he still doesn’t care. It’s not like it isn’t obvious that she’s better than he is at what they do. If only because he doesn’t hide anything from her while she does, and the name might not be all of it.

He doesn’t exactly care; she’s amazing the way she is, she makes him happy while living dangerously and he likes to think that he makes her happy, too. He doesn’t need to know.

Except, he realizes when he already knows that he will steal the Intersect, that he does need to know. If he never sees her again or if he dies trying, then he wants to know her real name. So he searches for her file three days before breaking into the National Intelligence Directorate, and finds out.

As he kisses her for what he knows is the last time, he has to force himself not to call her Sam, even if it fits her more than Sarah does.

What hurts is that he knows he won’t ever get to call her like that; but maybe, considering that he’s about to betray her and break her heart in what’s a question of hours, it’s not the worst part of it.

Sometimes he wonders when his life became all about hurting people he loves for their own good without them knowing it. But he’d rather not stop to dwell on that part. If only because he couldn’t afford to change his mind then and he can’t afford to change it now.


Title: The Situation Pierced Me To The Bone
Pairing: Bryce/Sam Winchester (crossover with SPN), one sided Chuck/Bryce
Rating: PG13
Wordcount: 500
Summary: It’s not really the poor kid’s fault if he ended up rooming with Bryce and really, it’s his first year. Bryce has no right to be an asshole to him just because he isn’t Chuck Bartowski.
Spoilers: duh, the pilot for both shows is probably enough. Wait. For Chuck up until the Stanford ep.
Disclaimer: Chuck isn't mine and SPN sure as hell isn't.
A/N: for pnr, again, who ended up giving me Bryce/Sam Winchester at Stanford because I really should shut up and never say crazy stuff that she ends up using against me. Title stolen from Bob Dylan, again. Yes, I had a list.

At the beginning, Bryce just tries not to hate Sam Winchester; he concentrates so hard on this particular task that he barely pays attention to the guy himself. It’s not really the poor kid’s fault if he ended up rooming with Bryce and really, it’s his first year. Bryce has no right to be an asshole to him just because he isn’t Chuck Bartowski.

So, instead, he tries to be nice, welcoming and friendly; in a few months he’ll be done with college anyway, so he can do it. He can stand three months rooming with someone else, right? He can and he will, even if it hurts. Not that he hadn’t taken the hurt factor into account, he knew it would happen; he just hadn’t known it would be so much. He knows that it was all for the best, in the end; and if Chuck will never know, well, he has already made peace with it, or so he likes to think.

It’s been a month already when he notices that Sam’s smile is kind of similar to Chuck, at times, and it’s proof enough that he isn’t taking this the way he should.

He should stay detached; instead, they start talking more and Bryce finds out he can’t pretend not to care. While Sam keeps a lot to himself, he’s nice and easy to be with, he misses his older brother as much as Bryce misses Chuck and the third nerdiest person Bryce knows after himself and his former roommate.

(Well, Sam doesn’t know Klingon even if he knows Latin better than some people who have been studying it here for years; still, to get to the top of that particular chart of Bryce’s, it’s kind of a necessary requirement.)

Bryce lets his guard down despite himself; but he does it just because he knows that there’s a new life waiting for him in a short while and well, Sam just needs to get adjusted and before he knows, he’ll be the lawyer he says he wants to be. Bryce is pretty sure he will make it; just as Chuck would have, if Bryce hadn’t turned him in.

He never really told Chuck. Just hinted, at times, and lightly, so well, Chuck didn’t know and never will; maybe that’s the reason Bryce kisses Sam the day before his graduation and two days before he’s off to his first real training as a CIA agent. Sam doesn’t push him back. It ends in rumpled sheets and Bryce biting hard on his tongue not to say anything that might out the real reason he’s doing this (not that he doesn’t like Sam, he genuinely does, but… well. You get it).

If Sam raises an eyebrow after, when Bryce lies back on the bed and mutters a couple of words in Klingon (but well, he could have just taken that for that nonsensical mumbling that comes at times with the afterglow), it just reminds Bryce of what he has lost.

Bryce/Sarah Sam:
aaaw! Very sweet, and sad, and wonderful.

Bryce/Sam Winchester:
Aaaaw ♥ Heck, I will end up shipping these two for reals or something *laugh*
And noooo, you shouldn't stop saying crazy stuff I can turn around on you. What would be the fun in that?

On both: I am very impressed! You managed to stick to really short ones XD And I approve of your Chuck writing!

LOL, good to know! Especially because someday I will write that show for real.

Much glad you liked the one with Sarah, I like them but don't particularly ship them so awesome to know it worked. ;)

I will end up shipping these two for reals or something *laugh*

I'm the master of making people ship weird shit. No, really, I am. ;) And lol, wait for the Impala and the laptop then.. XD <333

Oh, thanks! Much glad the crossover worked for you also because since I saw that Stanford ep I had been conjuring ways for Chuck/Bryce to meet up with Sam so I just gave my crossover instincts a go here, lol. And I couldn't help the one-sidedness, aw. :( One day I'll write that pairing for real. Glad you liked them!! <3

LOL yes I will! Damn, I still need to decide if I want poor Chuck to be a robot or a statue and if I want Bryce to be a crazy scientist or just a poor delusional sculptor. ;) I don't read much Chuck either, especially because there isn't much Chuck/Bryce and it takes a really good writer to make me get Chuck/Casey, but it SO has potential indeed!

How had I never seen the Bryce/Sam before? It was lovely and just perfect.
