Title: Playing House
Author: lamaitresse
Part: 1/1
Fandom: Degrassi: The Next Generation
Characters: Alex, Paige
Pairings: Palex
Summary: Variations on a familiar theme. Just some drabbles I cooked up with that wee Palex tidbit from last night's premiere.
Disclaimer: I own nothing associated with the Degrassi franchise
Rating: PG - I think they're all pretty tame.


"This couch is nothing but lumps and springs held together by cheap fabric."

"I don't know why you insist on sleeping on it. You can always--"

"No, that's fine."

"I meant it when I said you've got me now."

A sigh. A hand held out. Two pairs of feet tiptoe silently upstairs. Muffled giggles when the floorboard on the landing groans. A soft click when the door closes. Followed by more muffled giggling and the distinct creaking of springs that most certainly do not belong to the old couch downstairs.

"Hey, you're right. This bed really is way comfier."

Followed by still more giggling. It happens every night.


"Marco thinks we're just playing 'house.'"

"Maybe it's time to stop playing."


Paige's serious look turned playful. "No," she grinned, grabbing some bubbles from the sink and putting them in Alex's hair before making a mad dash for the stairs. Alex was hot on her trail trying to snap her with a damp tea towel.


"Why bother?"

"With what?"

"Doing that."

"Doing what? Making the bed?" Paige looked up from folding her fourth and final hospital corner. Her girlfriend, having recently stepped out of the shower, was standing in the doorway wearing nothing but a towel.

"Yeah." Alex's lips curved into the smallest of smiles. She moved into the bedroom, holding her hands out to help Paige up from her knees. "We're only gonna make it messy again."

Paige sighed, shook her head, and rolled her eyes. "Hun--"

She was cut off by Alex's lips on hers and the vague realisation that during her split-second eye-roll she'd somehow missed her towel slipping off. Before she knew it, her girlfriend wasn't the only naked girl feeling frisky in the room.

When they finally stopped for air, Alex surveyed the rumpled pile of linens that had now become their bed. "Oops," she smirked.

Paige sat up, still flushed. "Must you do this every time?" she demaned, throwing Alex a look.

"But you're so sexy when you're playing house..."
