Story: Live Fuzz or Die Hot  
Title: Live Fuzz or Die Hot
Rating: Mostly G, but I suppose R (or 15) for language
Pairing: Nick/Danny
Summary: “’Ey. Could you fly a chopper?”
Author’s Notes: So I saw Live Free or Die Hard tonight. This was inevitable. Contains some minor spoilers for that movie, but if you’ve seen previews, this won’t spoil you further. Also note that this is 100% dialogue and 99.9% fluff. This wound up being a sort of follow-up to Encounter at Cooper's Farm; I meant it to be this movie, freshly out on DVD in the UK, that they were going to watch. Comments, criticism, and suggestions are all very much welcome! (I know I could really use some tips on coming up with less awful titles...)

“’Ey. Could you fly a chopper?”


“A helicopter. You ever fly one?”

“Don’t be ridiculous. The process of getting not just a pilot’s license, but a helicopter pilot’s license, w—”

“Righ’. Sorry. Just wondered, is all.”

“Oh, Danny, look; I’m sorry. It’s j– you really thought I might be able to fly a helicopter?”

“Well. Yeh. Why not? You c’n do about everythin’ else, can’t you?”

“Well, not everything. I mean—”

“Marksmanship. Tactical driving in armed pursuit. Fencin’—I saw your certificate, don’t say y’ can’t. Show me some time, will ya? ...Runnin’ about and leapin’ over fences. Ridin’ horses.”

“I’m not terribly good at that. Took me longer than I’d anticipated to convince him to let me back on with all those guns.”


“So what brought on this line of enquiry?”

“You slept through it, but in one bit in the movie, McClane flies a chopper.”

“That’s...pretty hard to believe.”

“No, it really happened! I c’n show you, if you’d like.”

“I meant that—okay, Danny. Go on and show me.”

“...Later on, he takes on a fighter jet armed only with an articulated lorry!”

“Is that so? Cue it up, Danny. Want another beer?”

“Yeh. An’ see if you can find somethin’ to nibble on, eh?”

“Right. ...Oh, here’s some luck! I just found some Jaffa cakes in my coat pocket.”

“Heh-hee! ...Y’know, Nicholas...”


“If terrorists ever take over Sandford—well, I’m jus’ glad we’ve got you.”

“...Thanks, Danny. That— that actually means quite a lot to me.”

“You should get some practice. Go on, say it.”

“Say what, Danny?”

“You know what, Nicholas.”

“Danny, I really don’t know wh— oh. Right, of course. Ahem. ...Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!”



“Love you.”

“Love you, too, Danny.”

Nicholas is so cute. XD

Ain't he, though?

I've been introducing my husband to Spaced (having previously watched it alone on youtube), so I've really had it on the brain. That just sort of crept in. ;) Thank you for the comment!

Thanks very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it. That Spaced reference just sort of crept in there (and I must admit that I do really love Pims, as Jaffa cakes are known over here. ;))
