Lazy mornings in space

"You're not supposed to go commando in these, you know?" Joel said and stretched lazily as he watched Nate put on the white and golden jumpsuit. The ship's intern clock claimed it was morning despite the endless ocean of stars outside the window. The bright blue gas clouds of the Antares Nebula were glowing in the distance.
"I know that, thank you very much, but my knickers fell down the maintenance hatch which someone - whose name shall not be mentioned - leaves open all the time. That thing is a death trap, might I add."
"And that's coming from someone who tackled the tomb of Emperor Krilat'aram without giving it a second thought. I bet your Pharaohs didn't include laser traps in their tombs. Unless they were Osirans, of course."
Nate chuckled amusedly as he pulled up the zipper of his suit. The sight of Joel's naked body, barely concealed by the sheets, made him question the decision to get up. However, breakfast didn't prepare itself and even though he was a space (and sometimes time) travelling treasure hunter (and occasional rogue/space pirate) now there were some things that he simply couldn't go without. His morning tea was one of those. You could get the man out of Britain but you couldn't get Britain out of the man.
"Get me a coffee, will you?" Joel yawned and turned onto his back.
"Coffee..."
"Yes, coffee. Move it, Brit." the space pirate chuckled.

I'm kind of obsessed with these two ;) Made as a surprise for JezMiller - Finally some sci-fi art, yay.

By far my favorite of yours, both the posing and the faces make me wish you were doing this back in the 50's, for all those cover art pieces, of the sci-fi stories i grew up with![Yes, i'm that old, Sigh!] PLEASE make more!

Ah, Nate and Joel... I didn't do anything with them in ages. I really should so that again.

And don't worry about age, that's just a number :)

Every time I look at this, I think of Battlestar Galactica.   And I think Nate could give hottie Jamie Bamber some real competition.

*laugh* That is true... now I'm thinking of that scene in season 1 where you see Jamie with just a towel around his waist (let's forget about the silly "He got fat and lost it again" storyline). Actually I was listening to "All along the watch tower" while doing this but then I switched to "Barbarella" ;)

Have you ever heard of a fantasy writer named Michael Moorcock? He writes about the Eternal Champion, a hero who's archetype exists across countless universes. Here you seem to have something along the lines of the Eternal Nate. Tomb raider in one universe, spacefaring rogue in another, time-hopping gunslinger in another universe, and so on and so forth. And it is good. :3

(*lol* Is it horrible of me that my first thought was "Yes, and of that animated porn movie "House of Morecock"? *lol*)

Thanks to JezMiller's uncanny ability of connecting the dots we managed to get tomb raiding Nate into space and time without changing the universe. While first being dragged into the whole thing he later on decides to continue to travel instead of going back to Earth.

You and Kaleidoscopicdoom could be quite a team, if you could combine your creative energies...   Just a thought.

And now I'm sad that I can't make a pun here. In German you say "Die Geschichte ist fesselnd" which translated literally would mean "This story is tying you up" but sadly the double meaning doesn't translate to actual English very well *laugh*

"tying you up?"  lol.  I think we have Kaleidoscopicdoom 's interest for sure.

btw - is that a picture of Montana on the wall?  ;)

I like how you tackle the sci-fi genre!
I don't know how to explain it but I love it; it's only made better by the writing! :)
