Banya (Hetalia, Russia/America)

Another update, and so soon! This is all very strange, it's so unlike me! XD

Around 10 weeks ago I took down names for a drabble meme, but between chronic procrastination and the fact that my brain laughs and takes a bottle of neurological white-out to the word 'drabble' whenever it's used... we're gonna lay down those phat beats by ear. Some are done, some are not. This one is! =D


Title: Banya
Length: ~1,000 words.
Characters/Pairings: Russia/America.
Summary: [livejournal.com profile] erueru_2d's prompt. Russia and America in the banya.
Rating: PG-13. Fairly innocuous hot and sweaty rolling about while practically naked, minuscule amounts of trace kinks. It just kind of happens.




It had been bitterly cold outside. The skies clear, the trees cracking from the water freezing inside them, and before they came into the banya Russia had turned to him and smiled and said Savor it. “So I—” America swallows hard around the heated weight of the air. “I thought you were joking. Being sarcastic.”

“I was not,” Russia says somewhere above him. It sounds like he’s still smiling. The prick. “I was not being sarcastic. You have never done anything like this before?”

“Well, sweat lodges and stuff, but…” But this is different somehow. And it really bugs America that he can’t figure out why. It’s hard to think with the heat, though. It’s hard to do much of anything with the heat. It takes all his willpower to remain motionless on the wooden bench and just maintain.

“I’m just gonna step out for a second,” he says, arm edging over the side of the bench.

“No,” says Russia, and hits America with the branch thing again.

America wilts. It’s hard to squabble with a no, at least in this heat. “It's not fair, how come you can still function? How hot is it in here?”

It comes out slurred and mumbled together. Russia pauses with the leaves massaging over America’s skin. “It really would not help if you knew, America.”

“Didn’t ask if it would help.”

“Then I will tell you after.”

America tries to open his eyes. The muscles over his cheekbones twitch; his eye remain closed.  “But I want to know now.”

“Don’t be a child. It is worse if you watch the thermometer,” Russia says, and starts passing the switch across America’s back and legs again. Russia told him what it was for but it just makes America feel like he’s being put through a car wash. His skin trembles under the light, almost playful strokes, and it’s sort of nice. If America stopped to give it a serious thought, he'd probably say it was pleasant. He can feel himself opening with each pass, like his nerves are slowly unfurling in the heat.

“You’ve been getting more hit-happy with that thing since we started,” America observes.

“I am being very gentle, believe me,” Russia replies, and the laugh finally breaks free of his words. “Savor this, too.”

“Didn’t say I didn’t like it,” America says, but he gasps suddenly and his eyes fly open in shock when Russia settles a bare hand between his shoulders. He pushes himself off his stomach and they stare at each other. “You’re cold,” America says, eyes wide now. He’s light-headed as his movements catch up to him, it’s hard to concentrate with—God, the heat, it’s hard to concentrate, and he left his glasses out with their clothes so everything’s blurry anyway. “How are you not burning up?”

Russia stares at him. “Do you remember walking along the lake to get here?”

“Yeah?” America says. He reaches up to adjust the silly hat and his damp hair sticks along side of his face. “So?”

“Would you say it was very warm outside?” says Russia, eyebrow pitched as he waits for America’s reply.

America rolls his eyes. “Come on, I know you’re cold, but you’re cold too!” He grabs Russia’s hands and molds them around his neck and it’s, oh fuck it’s— “Oh yeah,” he says. Moans. It just kind of comes out but America doesn't care. His eyes flutter shut with pleasure and he pulls Russia in by the arms, feeling how far in it goes. “All over, God why didn’t you say something, you bastard…”

“Where to begin,” Russia sighs, but allows his arms to be positioned around America, hands splayed across his back. America presses his face against Russia’s chest, first one side and then the other, trying to get as much skin touching as possible and they end up falling back on the bench. Russia probably isn’t all that cold, but compared to the banya he’s something close to heaven.

“Wow. Oh God, you feel amazing,” America says with little gasps of joy. He clings like a barnacle when Russia tries to pry him off. “Actually, can we just... yeah, I’m not... I'm not really done. Sorry.”

They rest in silence for a minute or so. Russia gingerly rubs America's back.  “This is awkward, America.”

“I know," America says. “I'm really sorry. I'll let go the second the heat is less than the embarrassment, I promise.”

“And I thought you would be happy for this part,” Russia says in his quietly teasing voice. America’s head flops back on the bench when Russia manages to peel him off. He watches Russia step into the middle of the room and turn to remove the wrap around his waist. “Are you ready?”

America stares as Russia’s towel flops to the floor. “Um. Ready for what?”

Do you remember walking along the lake to get here?” Russia asks. He waits by the door, looking over his shoulder. “Did you notice anything about the lake?”

America blinks. “I don’t know, there was snow over it? And there was a… big hole cut in the ice? Oh. Oh,” he says, and Russia smiles at him. He rolls off the bench and trips forward until he's beside Russia at the door. “Oh hell yeah I like this part. Do we need shoes? Or anything?” Russia’s fingers flick out and America’s wrap slips to the ground. “Or, um. Hi.”

Russia slowly inhales, a deep cleansing breath. “We don’t need anything. Unless you would like shoes? If you would rather stand in the snow and wait for me, that is also fine.”

“Okay, no,” America says, laughing and shaking his head. “Let's get one thing straight. I'm not afraid of jumping in a little cold water, alright? You don't need to act all patronizing to get me to jump in that lake. I’m going all the way. Sometime soon. Any day now. Whenever you’re ready,” he says, clenching his fists as Russia takes his sweet time on another breath. “Something you know that I don’t? That I maybe should? Because it looks like you're just barely holding in a good chuckle, probably at my expense.”

“I know the temperature outside.”

“Hey, whatever, I’m ready when you are, big guy.” America claps his hands together. “Let’s go. I know you probably can't feel the full force of it, but it is ridiculously hot in here.”

Russia grips the handle. Just before the door opens, he turns to America, smiles, and says, “Savor it.”

Your Russia and America are so much fun to read, seriously.

And you should write more. Write. More. Write more.

*salutes* More fic on the way sooner than 10 months! And yours is next. Austria~

[identity profile] pyrrhiccomedy.livejournal.com 2010-04-13 08:03 pm (UTC)(link)
They're weirdly hard to come by. =/

[identity profile] djsoliloquy.livejournal.com 2010-04-13 10:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Fff. What am I talking about, I have this one. It's still so new I just don't think about it >_>;


But it's not a hot Austria one. Alas.

[identity profile] pyrrhiccomedy.livejournal.com 2010-04-14 12:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Is...is that Austria "keyboard smashing?"

...Fffffffff

[identity profile] djsoliloquy.livejournal.com 2010-04-14 05:31 pm (UTC)(link)
AUSTRIA SMASH.

I can't help but be the tiniest bit irrationally disappointed the mash uses other letters than in A B C D E F and G :( "askgdhsakjfhkjfhd" just looks better. I bet that happens to him, though. He gets huffy at someone online, doesn't have a piano handy, so he keyboard mashes off to the side in a separate document and it comes out "afgebecdcgdafdg" every time.

[identity profile] miss-chella.livejournal.com 2010-04-13 08:32 pm (UTC)(link)
Russia laughing at America is my favorite this ever, and you do it so well it's just fantastic.

Russia’s fingers flick out and America’s wrap slips to the ground. “Or, um. Hi.”

I DON'T KNOW WHY, BUT THIS LINE MADE ME LAUGH THE HARDEST. Oh, America.

can...can I friend you?

[identity profile] djsoliloquy.livejournal.com 2010-04-13 09:43 pm (UTC)(link)
THAT LINE. It's great, see, because repressed!America is fantastically hilarious and you just can't go wrong comedically with repressed!America.

...which is how I explain it scientifically. Ahem.

Oh my god, yes totally! Why haven't we done this yet? D= *+friends*

[identity profile] ichii-lemoncat.livejournal.com 2010-04-13 09:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh man, I agree with the person above me, the "Or, um. Hi." Part made me laugh so much! Very good fic!

[identity profile] djsoliloquy.livejournal.com 2010-04-13 09:46 pm (UTC)(link)
There's something innately hilarious when all that bravado sort of blushes and covers itself up when the clothes are removed. Oh repressed!America, how we love your adorable repressedness <3

[identity profile] loliconvict.livejournal.com 2010-04-13 09:31 pm (UTC)(link)
THIS IS AWESOME

THIS IS SEVERAL SHADES OF AWESOME AND TOTALLY IC

I wish I could write a more coherent review, but words tend to fail me horribly.

[identity profile] djsoliloquy.livejournal.com 2010-04-13 10:19 pm (UTC)(link)

I am enjoying this so much too! Observe: DJ posts fic --> makes DJ happier --> DJ writes even more fic! =D What a glorious cycle this is!

[identity profile] wizzard890.livejournal.com 2010-04-13 10:59 pm (UTC)(link)
THERE IS A GREAT DEAL OF GROPING GOING ON IN THIS CONVERSATION. I APPROVE.

I await the next turn of this magnificent cycle with bated breath.

[identity profile] nawojka.livejournal.com 2010-04-13 10:11 pm (UTC)(link)
Hahaha they should also 'savor' some vodka in the best tradition of banya ;)
I love that somebody wrote a fic about it!

[identity profile] djsoliloquy.livejournal.com 2010-04-13 10:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Haha, of course! When they get back inside, I'm sure XD And so the afternoon progresses...

Thank you so much for reading!

[identity profile] nym-aulth.livejournal.com 2010-04-14 12:43 am (UTC)(link)
I have a shit-eating grin on my face after reading this that won't go away.

I'm so glad someone did something like this-my Russian History professor was trying to explain the Russian banya ritual to us the other day and I was like : this needs R/A fic, now! And then you post this! Savor it, indeed XDDD


although, now I kinda wanna try this someday O_O

[identity profile] djsoliloquy.livejournal.com 2010-04-14 04:00 am (UTC)(link)
I'm so glad! Chronic grinning is wonderful.

If you ever find yourself someplace cold in winter, go for it, especially with friends! =D It's a ton of fun when it gets fantastically cold out.

[identity profile] rissa-ichigo.livejournal.com 2010-04-14 01:57 am (UTC)(link)
Awwwwwwww! I loved this so much! :3 Wonder what the experience is like?

[identity profile] djsoliloquy.livejournal.com 2010-04-14 04:10 am (UTC)(link)
Thank you! =D If you've ever used a sauna, it's like that? And with friends and drinking and making merry, a fabulous time all around, haha.

[identity profile] erueru-2d.livejournal.com 2010-04-15 09:21 am (UTC)(link)
ARadhydhyaeyaeADFH Th-this is -- sooo delicious! ♥ 1000 points for the idea of Russia being slightly cold even in banya. UNF. This has made my day! Or even 3 days!

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

And, well, I feel a little bit guilty because I didn't comment on your previous fics, but I read and liked them all! I often re-read them and even planning to translate couple of them into Russian! ♥

[identity profile] djsoliloquy.livejournal.com 2010-04-15 09:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes! *first pumps* I'm so glad you liked it XD Making days is what I strive for.

Oh no, don't feel guilty at all! Just, like, knowing people are reading and liking stuff is great and I know people have real lives and stuff. But hhnngg whatwhatwhat, planning to translate into Russian? *BLUSH* HONEY ♥ I'm super curious, which ones were you looking at? =D

[identity profile] erueru-2d.livejournal.com 2010-04-17 02:35 am (UTC)(link)
'Waltz' and 'A Little More Spark'. :)

[identity profile] nastybillabong.livejournal.com 2010-04-16 04:56 pm (UTC)(link)
