A vignette, Lister-POV. The other male prisoners were susceptible to the Sexual Magnetism Virus on Rimmer, but Lister wasn't. Why? Slashy implications.
Yeah, him. Smeghead. Just like that bastard used to be, before death and psi-moons and worlds of clones and all of the other things that made him realize he was a bastard, and made him be less of one. He wouldn't've used that virus like that, nossir, not the Arnold Rimmer I helped on his way to bein' a Space Hero.
Not that he would have had to.
Kochanski asked me later - after I had played that prank with the rest of the virus, and maybe it was wrong, but damn, I needed to take him down a peg. She asked why I was immune to it. I just told her the truth - I'm not - and let her wonder. Yeh see, I've had practice. Lots of it. Sittin' around with a hard-on, wantin' to do things to him I never thought I would want to do to /anyone/, let alone him. Practice makes perfect, I guess; practice at desirin' and not takin', practice at giggling and grinnin' and making mean jokes when yer on fire. Sure, it's not the same man, but he looks so much like him - from his stupid polished boots to his ridiculous curly hair - that it was easy to pretend he was, and resist.
Kochanski just shrugged and said yeh can build up an immunity to any virus, if you're exposed long enough. She doesn't know how right she is.
