Prison Break Het Fiction: "Slipping Away" (Lincoln/Veronica, PG)  
Title: Slipping Away
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Lincoln/Veronica (Het)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: It was the last time that hurt instead…
Author's notes: Another entry for the pbhiatus_fic double-drabble "sex" challenge. I've been meaning to try this pairing again for ages, and this was just the encouragement I needed.


The first time didn't hurt the way she expected; it was the last time that hurt instead.

On the living room sofa, they touched and kissed. Lincoln's mouth whispered over Veronica's neck and chest, and she sighed and stroked his arms, her whole body tingling and shaking under his.

They'd been leading up to this for ages, with Veronica's crush sidelined when Lincoln went to Juvie. Now he was back.

All the warnings in the world couldn't keep her from wanting him. She knew the reasoning, but it was Lincoln. Part of her always felt they were destined for a star-crossed life.

They moved as quietly as possible on the sofa, trying not to wake Michael. The piercing fullness of Lincoln made her gasp, but his tender gaze—choosing her—soon eased the pain.

Over the years that promise was always there, despite Lincoln returning to jail again and again.

The last time they made love (after L.J., after everything), it was passionate and perfect. But Lincoln became a junkie within a week, even though she'd been so sure

The memory was tainted after that, too painful to revisit. That last time had been a lie. Only Lincoln's betrayal remained.

:D I've seen that one before-- I love the way the giant chomps seem to confuse it, and its forehead spines crash together.

I showed it to Christopher too. So cute!

So angsty and sad.

And I LOL'd at the quotes around "sex". This is close enough! :D

Well, I suppose I could have capitalized it as Sex instead of using quotes, but I usually put the challenge prompt/idea in quotes. No reflection on the content-- there's definitely sex in this one. ;)

The ending IS sad, and there's such innocence and hope in the beginning, as if no matter what other people say it'll turn out different for the two of them. *sniffle*

I love Veronica's POV here. So much hope and so many illusions lost ;_;

You could still see the return of those feelings at the end, too, once she realized Lincoln was truly innocent of murdering Steadman and began to hope that she could prove it and save him.

The whole Veronica story is just heartbreak from beginning to end, I think. So sad. :(

This is gorgeous and sad and a dozen other good things. They're just so DOOMED but you can't help hoping that they'll work it out, especially looking at them like this.

P.S. Sorry I'm so late in reading this. RL has been booting me in the butt lately.

The whole Veronica thing is so sad to me, because you could always sense the innocence in her that would think it might someday be different (and it was always so clear that she loved Lincoln even at the end, in spite of not wanting to).

I'm thrilled that you read it at all! There's not much appreciation for L/V for whatever reason, and you know how infrequently I write "Het" at all!

Thanks so much for commenting. ♥

Just so sad that it all ended when they'd finally reconnected and she actually believed he was the man she'd once thought he was. *sighs*

I love Linc/Vee (I've written a bit of it myself) so it's no surprise that I'm over here, drooling over this. Plus, it's your writing, so, you know. *g*

I didn't realize you'd written Linc/Vee, so now I'm looking for it via your LJ. But all I can find is links to pbfic.net, so that could be slow going. Anthing in particular aside from "Common Ground" (which I've just found)?

Epiphany is Linc/Vee set pre-series. I wrote it for badboy_fangirl a while back. It's set in the same AU universe as all the major M/S stuff I've written, but it's pre-series so there's no Sara or Fox River yet. *g*

really, really good!

Thank you very much!

There's such sadness in all the hopes Veronica had for how things with Lincoln might have gone, when in the end he couldn't be what she wanted and she gave every last bit of herself for the memory of who he used to be. *sigh*

I was hoping you'd like it, because I know how partial you are to Linc/Vee-- and maybe also to bittersweetness as well. :)
