Bruce and Ollie are practically Don Draper and Roger Sterling, so let's have a Mad Men AU!

by halves

"What I don't get about you," Ollie Queen says from behind Bruce's corner office desk where he's flipping through the Rolodex with only half an interest in his own snooping, "is how you can manage to sit here all day looking at that ugly lime tree and not throw yourself out the window."

"It's not a lime tree, it's a ficus," Bruce says, "and get out of my chair."

"See what I mean?" Ollie says with the long-suffering sigh that he gives when people don't engage with his aimless chatter. "Makes you cranky. Anyhow, I didn't come in here for interior decorating," he says, getting up and pouring himself a significant sort of whiskey to make up for it. "I came because I wanted to know how the new girl's doing." He slugs back half the glass without blinking. "What is she, Chinese? She didn't look shifty enough to be Japanese."

"This is the reason we took you off the Hashi account before you were even on it," Bruce grunts, making an identical drink for himself. "She's Korean, but only half."

"If the mom looked like her, I don't blame GI Joe for picking up his chopsticks."

Bruce smirks but doesn't follow up on the comment. "She's good so far," he says. "Mia says she tends to be too political but they've been able to sand the edges off enough for it to appeal without offending."

"Offending doesn't automatically rule out appealing," Ollie remarks. "And that Rayner kid's art can make anything seem stupider." He sits down in the chair on the other side of Bruce's desk and leans forward. "Listen. I was thinking, about last week--"

"If this is about what happened at the party, I don't want to hear it," Bruce says. The whiskey makes a sour burble in his stomach, acid against his breakfast of two spoonfuls of banana pudding that Kate had made during the night, up with insomnia and chain-smoking until she passed out from exhaustion. "What goes on between you and Zatanna is your own business. Nothing to do with me."

"Anymore," Ollie finishes for him. He wants Bruce to agree, it's obvious in the unflinching gaze, and Bruce spreads his hands, more tired than pissed.

"What do you want me to say, Ollie? It's done. All of it. I've got a Korean girl's overly political ad copy for Soft Touch cotton balls to deal with now, if you don't mind." Bruce puts his hands on his desk, exasperated, until Ollie gets up and jams his hands in his pockets.

"Let her be political," he says. "Hell, it's cotton balls. If she can get people spitting fire over those, then she's got a future here." Ollie pauses in the doorway. "She's a beautiful girl, Bruce."

"The party's over, Ollie," Bruce says.

He drinks the rest of Ollie's whiskey once the door shuts.
