Title: Steal Your Breath Away
Fandom: Justified

Author's Notes: A team_prose entry for the writerverse prompt of "One Time Only."

x-x-x-x-x

"This is just for tonight," Raylan says. "It ain't gonna be a regular thing."

He and Boyd are in the woodshed, naked and touching each other with uncharacteristic wonder.

"Hell, I know that," Boyd snaps.

Raylan acts like Boyd's about to start picking out curtains, though truthfully, Boyd's already thinking once won't be enough, and how come Raylan gets to make all the damn rules, anyway?

"Like that?" Raylan asks.

Oh, God. Boyd makes a sound halfway to sin. "Slow down…"

This is the best thing that's ever happened to Boyd. He's got to make it last while he can.

You wrote Raylan/Boyd slash drabble - YAY!
S02
of Justified just started two weeks ago in Helioland and Boyd looks so hawt with his 50ties glasses on, IMO.^^
*nods**nods*
- And he has every right to pout about Raylan because yeah...
"how come Raylan gets to make all the damn rules, anyway?"
- Damn right, Boyd... go tell the cocky and cheating bastard! ;)

Mmhh... thank you very much for sharing, my dear Mme Venus; this is my first Justified fic in general - so the more I'm glad it was your delicious little drabble who finally got me, hehe...^^

I didn't even know you watched Justified, but I'm glad you found this!

I haven't been writing Justified long-- just a couple of drabbles and a short fic-- but the end of S1 sent me chasing after Raylan/Boyd slash ASAP. There's such a vibe between them, so much implied history and such inability to just walk away.

Thanks for reading!

not a regular thing my ass.... we all know they can't quit each other. :D boyd's reaction - "this is the best thing that's ever happened" - makes this really sweet, which is kind of odd for raylan/boyd. but i like it.

It's so easy to think the first time will be the only one when you're halfway to denying it's even happening. But in this case, I just don't see how.

And Boyd... he just gives the impression of being the one who feels more, and we know he was the one who was "left." The way he looks at Raylan even now is so moonstruck half the time. Which is one of the things I love about the show!

LOL! I love this drabble. I've only seen half of season.1 but these two definitely have chemistry.

Yay-- thank you!

I tell you, by the time you get to the last couple of episodes of S1, your slash goggles will be practically glued on. :0

Lovely job on this drabble. So many things rolled into it!

Loved this:

"Raylan acts like Boyd's about to start picking out curtains"

<3

That's what I love about drabbles-- how much you can imply rather than explicitly state, and yet the reader still gets the whole sense of it.

"Raylan acts like Boyd's about to start picking out curtains"
And while Boyd scoffs at the idea, at some point down the road he's going to feel that fleeting temptation, and wish things were closer to that than the truth of just secrets and stolen moments.

Thanks so much for reading!

Oh man. You really make me miss those two! ♥

I'm a season behind canon, and that might be all for the best. Hope not!

But I love the sense of possibility/past that's always there between the two characters. :)

I think it's gonna happen more than this one time *LOL* <3<3
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Random Fandomhalfshellvenus on September 15th, 2012 06:27 pm (UTC)
I would sure hope so, but a guy still has to reach for that denial-- especially if he's halfway to pretending it isn't even happening right now.

Except the part where it is. :)

Their history is so underexplored on the show, and yet so much is implied by their weird relationship that I think there must be room for a lot of scenes like this in their past. Very evocative in such few words. Nice.

It leaves SO much opportunity to think there's something much deeper and stronger than "We dug coal together" in their past.

And writers have endless fun exploring just what that something might be. :)

Didn't know you were also a Justified fan! :D
