Aww, *loves*! 3AM is good to you, :D
Thank you so much! And no, 3AM might not be so bad, it's the 9AM that follows that sucks. ;)
I've never played WoW but I know enough to know what aggro and a tank are, and I LOL'd so loud my kids were asking what's so funny.

Poor Eliot, he just doesn't understand what a great compliment he's just been paid.
Thank you! I'm glad to hear that a non-WoWer understood what the heck I was talking about (I was a bit afraid I'd gone too geeky). And no, Eliot definitely doesn't recognize a Hardison!compliment when he gets one.
That was wonderful! I love that Hardison's default brain-not-quite working goes to WoW!

Thank you! I'd like to think Hardison's brain is always in WoW-mode, but that it kicks into high gear once his common sense logs out.
Hahaha, awesome. *hearts*
Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it.
*giggles madly* That was awesome! ♥
Clearly you should have ideas at 3am more often! *loves*
Thank you! I'm glad you liked it.
He also knows fifteen different ways he could kill Hardison and make it look like an accident. Using only one hand. The question isn't whether it'd be worth it or not, but if he would have enough time to properly dispose of the body.

*cracks up* So. Much. Win. Oh, poor Hardison! Great job!
Thank you so much! And yes, poor Hardison indeed.
Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it.
3 AM is underrated.
Thank you!
I'm kinda jealous of how your brain functions at 3am.

♥ I love your Eliot and Hardison so much! =D
Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Eliot and Hardison are so much fun to write - it's probably entirely possible to OD on their snark. ♥
Loved Eliot in this, him being a badass and his reason for not getting drunk. It also explains his concern for Nate's drunkenness in the show.

Didn't get the WOW references (had to look them up) but it's totally in character for Hardison to think like that. And I learned something new :).
Thank you! I'm glad you liked it.

Badass!Eliot is a blast to write. As is WoWgeek!Hardison (because I'm one too).
Oh, that was so much fun! :D The question isn't whether it'd be worth it or not, but if he would have enough time to properly dispose of the body. LOL!
Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
I've read this before. Did I review it? I hope I reviewed it. I'll review it again, just to be safe:

Lol'd at the team going out drinking together. And at Parker coming in through the window. It's just so Parker. And Eliot joining Sophie in Bermuda and losing her in a shoe store. Also, Hardison vomiting on Nate. I heart it.

Have you considered a career as a writer for Leverage? Because I would love to see them actually act this out.
Yay! I'm glad you liked it!

Writing for the show would be kind of awesome, only it'd probably all go down in flames because I'd have Eliot shirtless and hitting people half the time, and Hardison too busy raiding in WoW to actually be of any real use to the team, and then I'd ship them all off for a con in northern Sweden in the middle of winter, and that'd be the straw that broke the camel's back. :D
Oh, you SO do not interrupt the Man in Black. :D

Also, 3AM is the only time when things actually happen and ideas are actually good. Which means it's the only real time of day, and anything that really happens or any good ideas at any other time are just on loan. Trufax. *nods*

I think sitting around and talking/not talking is my kink. Seriously. Which is either the least embarrassing or the most embarrassing kink ever.

And while there were plenty of lovely lines, Hardison's a big bag of idiotic potatoes just hit me in that special place. \o/ I love your!Eliot rescuing your!Hardison, angsty or not. :)
Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. :D

3 AM is definitely the hour of the plotbunnies, oh yes. And I'm happy that you enjoy my!Eliot rescuing my!Hardison, because that's mostly what the bunnies bring to the table. They're predictable creatures. Heh. :)
