Opposites Attract  
Title: Opposites Attract
Fandom/Characters: Alles Was Zählt; Marc/Etienne, past Marian/Etienne
Warnings: None/gen, 250 words
Summary: Deniz is not his only rival.
Disclaimer: Totally made up, not real, just nonsense.
A/N: Written in [info]sdk's awesome post of awesome but reposted here because she made me. It is commentfic, be gentle.

It's true, Marc had been surprised when Roman agreed to have breakfast with him. But what had truly surprised him was the restaurant that Roman suggested. No. 7. "It's next to the Centre, you can't miss it," Roman had explained, but he hadn't needed to. Marc had heard of the bar so many times before, had heard of the barkeep so much more, had burned with jealousy at the man who'd caught Etienne's attention before, of the one he sometimes worried still held his heart.

"I'm seeing someone," he had said, looking at Roman, but his words had been only for the man behind their table. Compact, wearing black and a stern frown for Marc, he floated through the bar like a determined storm cloud. It was hard picturing him with Etienne, he of the easy smile and carefree stride, the ineffably French airiness that called to Marc's proper German soul.

Then again, it wasn't hard to imagine at all.

Opposites attract, Etienne always said, and Marc had always taken it as a compliment. Now he knew the truth: Etienne's genuine opposite was in this Turkish barkeep, the true other half of his lover's coin. Stealing Roman away from the son, that might be a battle, but it was one that Marc was fairly sure he could win. But ever claiming Etienne completely away from the father? Even in another country, that was a war he knew he'd never win.

Marc is RESPECTFUL, Shelly. NOT COCKY. Okay, yeah, maybe he is a bit cocky. And a little on the smug side. And has that smirk that stops hearts. FINE FINE, HE IS A COCKY COCKY THING!

Thank you for saying nice things about crappy commentfic. *squeezes you* I can't believe it's been so long since I wrote anything - I had to look up how to do headers LOL.

You're being too nice about the silly commentspam. Where is the mocking about his noble German soul?

*cuddles Marc too* He needs it, I'm going to be broken when he falls apart.

(lol it's been way too long ... it also just took me about ten minutes to figure out how to unscreen comments. cross your fingers that the spamstorm's stopped!)

I know, it's the nonsensical kind of otherworld in which Roman Wild had no dates for two years. MADNESS!

I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry over this fic, because... well... *loves*

Haha, my first thought when they mentioned that Marc lived in France was that his 'boyfirend' was totally Etienne. I'm glad I'm not the only one! Because there's only one other gay man in the whole of France, don't you know?

But also, poor Marc! Knowing now that he can never have Etienne wholly. And I love that it gives a totally new explanation for the Roman/Marc thing, too. I'm pining a little for Marc/Etienne, here. Why, Lilith, why?!

Ahahahah that icon, that is perfect!

Thank you, sweetie, your words are far more kind than silly commentfic deserves. I'm giggling that you thought of Etienne too. I actually didn't at first, I was still thinking of René from Aldi's fic. WE MAKE CANON YES. (Actually we do. *coughRandycough*)

*loves you lots*
