Prison Break Gen Fiction: "The Specter of Salvation" (Mahone, Michael, PG)  
Title: The Specter of Salvation
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Mahone, Michael (Gen, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary: Michael was the adversary of a lifetime.
Author's Notes: A Mahone drabble for shaitanah. Hope you like it!


Piecing together the mystery of Michael Scofield was as familiar as coming home.

Michael was cleverer than most, his planning more complex. His was a vintage Mahone had longed to sip—the talented amateur, as born to deception as breathing, with an intelligence that rivaled Mahone's own.

Mahone liked to think he'd have been given Michael's case anyway, based on history and merit. But he knew better. He was a puppet now, enslaved by his secrets and addictions, while Michael remained the adversary of a lifetime.

Drugged-out and disgraced, Mahone would strive to the utmost to be worthy of him.

I'm so glad you liked it!

The whole Mahone-Michael thing always fascinated me, and I was SO sorry the show made Mahone a semi-villain later in S2. How much more interesting to have a good man pursue another good man who happens to have done bad things (for all the right reasons)?

And while Michael was clever... Mahone was up to the task, which made things even more interesting! They were very well-matched. :)
