Prison Break Gen Fiction: Brute Force Mechanics

Title: Brute Force Mechanics
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Lincoln and Michael (Gen, Humor)
Rating: PG
Summary: Lessons in the fine art of brotherly irritation...
Author's Notes: Microscopic S2 spoiler (harmless). For the "all-dialogue" challenge at foxriver_fic. Also for my prisonbreak100 table, where I have the Gen pairing of Lincoln and Michael. This #72, "Fixed"


"Lincoln, would you just—"

"I don't think that's how it works, Michael."

"So you keep saying. Now do you mind? You're blocking the light."

"Okay, okay. I'll just be over here while you—"

"Fine. Do that."

"All right, already. Geez."

"Nmgh mruh huh…"

"What, Michael?"



"Who builds a piece of garbage like this anyway? Stupid sons of…"

"Hey, you know, why don't I—"

"No thank you. Now sit down, please."

"It's just a stove, Michael, for crying out loud!"

"Which is why it's not a problem, all right? For the last time."

"Okay, that's it— I'm done being polite. I'm starving and you've gotten fixated, the way you always do, and it never solves anything! So now I'm just going to say it: you're doing it wrong."

"Like you know…"

"I do know. So step aside, and let me take care of this."

"I don't need your help."

"That's right, Michael— you're way beyond help now. I'm doing it for you, or it'll be decades past dinner before you learn to make fire."

"Ha-ha. And I already checked that connection, by the way."

"Just making sure. So now I just—"

"That's not fixing, Lincoln! That's kicking! You didn't fix anything—that's cheating."

"And yet, when I turn the handle— voila! It actually works now, the way it completely didn't before..."

"You messed with it while I was on the deck, didn't you? Just so you could pull this whole thing right now."

"Of course not! Why would I do that?"

"To piss me off."

"Yes, Michael, because our lives have been so boring since we broke out of prison. It all makes sense now."

"The point is, you didn't really fix it."

"So you won't mind eating yours raw then, just on the principle of the thing."

"I didn't say that…"

"Better keep quiet then, before I start hearing it."


"It's a deal—you're having sushi."
