Prison Break Gen Fiction: "A New Day" (PG)  
Title: A New Day
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Lincoln, Michael. (Gen)
Rating: PG
Summary: Hope seems unreal after so long without it.
Author's Notes: For mashimero, who wanted Michael & Lincoln or Michael/Lincoln, watchful gaze.
Also for prisonbreak100, this is "Lightening.


Dawn was coming.

The sky had shifted from black to indigo, and the sun would breach the horizon within the hour. Michael slept while Lincoln sat with his back against a tree, his vigilance born of restless dreams and the feeling that he had let Michael carry the weight of their future far too long.

Michael wouldn't complain or even blame him. Death Row stole a man's life years before he drew his final breath.

Against all odds, Michael had saved him, and now they ran to keep the freedom Lincoln had never thought he'd have again.

Returning to the role of protector—even just for the night—helped restore the balance Lincoln's life had lost years ago. He could believe in a future, in a chance to become a better person again, as long as he kept his brother safe.

Darkness slowly lifted, like clouds drifting away from the sun. The new day brought hope and possibility now. Mornings no longer meant the end was one step closer.

Each day was a new beginning, and Lincoln was finally ready to embrace that.

I utterly adore this little piece of Prison Break Heaven! The idea of Lincoln looking out for Michael again after he had given up everything to save his big brother touches my heart and brings back fond memories of what Prison Break once gave us.

Thank you. ♥

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

It was a really nice prompt, and I finished this weeks ago but could not get the title to come.

I miss those PB days... :)

A very upbeat title for an uplifting fic and it really was a good prompt. :)

I miss those PB days too...but Episode 4 of The Flash was on UK TV last night and I have to say Wentworth doesn't look that much older than he did when PB finished and he certainly brings a very chilling edge to Captain Cold! And Dominic in the shape of Heatwave will be along soon too! Wonder if there'll be any Temperature Twins slash?!! :)

Sorry for the delayed response, I haven't been on LJ much lately. This is such a lovely brotherly moment, a bit of peace in all their turmoil. And I love seeing Linc fall into the big brother role again. It's something that I just did not get enough of in the show!

Thanks so much for this <333

I'm so glad you enjoyed this! It was a lovely prompt, and while it took me a while to finish it, the phrase was wonderfully evocative.

It brought Lincoln to mind right away, knowing all that he did for Michael when they were young, and how very much the tables had turned by the time he was in Fox River.

Thanks for leaving me that drabble idea, so long ago!
