Disclaimer: If Alex Cabot belonged to me, she wouldn’t be playing with anyone else.. er ... If Law and Order BELONGED to me, you think I’d be writing fic? So no. Dick Wolf and his crew own it all, I am just taking Elliot, Olivia, Fin, and others, out to play. Now, if Mr. Wolf is looking for someone to write his L&O novel tie-ins … I’m totally there. Just sayin.
Summary: It was so rare that Olivia used her full name that Alex pulled back to look into her lover’s eyes. Something had changed between now and this morning, when they’d rolled from bed and mutually griped about the need to put in an appearance at the precinct’s party. Alex had worried then – Olivia had seemed distant and nervous and by the time they reached the party, she’d almost convinced herself that Olivia was working up to the inevitable breakup and she could consider herself lucky to be one of the many on Olivia Benson’s infamous dance card. But looking into her eyes now, she realized she’d been completely wrong. No, Olivia had something else on her mind.
