Prison Break Slash Fiction: "Useless To Deny It" (PG-13)  
Title: Useless To Deny It
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Michael/Lincoln (Slash)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: There is no way for Michael to hide this from himself.
Author's Notes: A late offering for uncuffmybrother's 7th anniversary celebration.
Also for fanfic100 ("Light").

x-x-x-x-x

Most people in this situation would probably turn off the lights, Michael thought. But Michael wasn't most people, and there was no use even trying to define this situation in normal terms.

It was Friday night, and Lincoln next shift wasn't until after twelve the next day. So, he and Michael were in bed together, slick hands and hungry mouths erasing all thoughts of anything outside the present.

It wasn't work they tried to forget, it was the fact of who they were. Being brothers hadn't kept them from starting all this, and it hadn't helped them walk away. The wrongness of their relationship was always there in the background. Funny how they'd reached a point where even that didn't matter.

Too much history and too much need between them, Michael always thought.

Keeping the lights off would help Michael deny who he was with, but he'd never wanted to pretend Lincoln was someone else. The fact that it was Lincoln had always been the point.

Doing it in the dark wouldn't change anything, wouldn't shift the balance between the wrongness and how much of it felt so right.

He was breaking all the rules for the sake of the one person his entire life had always revolved around. He'd chosen Lincoln over everything, and he made that choice again every single day.

Given that, he'd certainly earned the right to leave all the lights on and enjoy the view.

Oh! This is everything that's wrong with the brothers' relationship. And everything that's right! And the summary is a wonderful insight in itself!

It would have been a real shame if Michael couldn't have enjoyed the visual stimilation too, wouldn't it?!!

Thanks for helping to celebrate the anniversary in such a naughty way, sweetheart. :)

I'd sure never pass on those visuals. Whoo!

So glad you liked it, and I'm sorry it's late. But better than not at all! :D

Mmmm. Yes.

And what a view it is! Rawrrrrr!

Thanks for reading and commenting. :D

I like this because it acknowledges said wrongness but also stresses that what they have is stronger anyway. And this works whether you use an incestuous take or not, Michael having to know that the lengths is ready to go to for Lincoln aren't healthy.

Given that, he'd certainly earned the right to leave all the lights on and enjoy the view.

That last sentence is so possessive and shameless, almost ruthless.

Loved it ♥

On a side note, this has a special echo for me: one of my first M/L fic - Twilight - had Lincoln insisting that they turned off the lights, and Michael, eventually, not caring that much :-p

In any sense, they really aren't. All of the people who died or were emotionally destroyed because of Michael's need to save Lincoln sure attests to that.

Your comment tempted me to read that story, since that moment didn't seem familiar. I'm glad I did-- wow. It was fantastic!

I love your PB fic so much; this was a lovely afternoon treat (and makes me wanna rewatch some eps).

I'm so glad you liked it-- and that I still get one of these out, once in awhile.

Rewatching sounds wonderful! I keep thinking I'll rewatch the end of S1 and finish by canon-parallel series, but not so far... :)
