x-x-x-x-x Chapter 9: After the Riot x-x-x-x-x

The C.O. was dead.

That thought hung in the air as Michael balled himself up in Lincoln’s lap and cried. He had caused it, by starting the riot, and he could never undo it.

Lincoln rubbed his back softly, and let him cry. He felt this burden too, but now was not the time to add to Michael’s grief.

When the tears slowed down and the trembling stopped, he lifted Michael’s face up to look at him. Wiping the tears off with his hand, he kissed his forehead and eyelids, and cradled Michael’s head against his own.

After a few minutes, Michael raised his head and gazed at Lincoln quietly. His eyes wandered down Lincoln’s face, and he finally took a really good look at him. “What—what the hell happened to your neck?” he gasped.

“Someone was waiting for me,” Lincoln said, “After I woke up from that fight with T-Bag’s bunch.”

“Who? Why?” Michael asked.

“Who was Turk—at least, he was the inside man on it. I never did find out who was behind it. And I have no idea why.” Lincoln took a deep breath. “You know, let’s not worry about this now. It’s been a long day, and I just don’t have it in me to launch an investigation right now.”

Michael’s eyes looked haunted, but he just nodded. He could find something out later, he was pretty sure, by working his system. But no need to drag Lincoln down into it right this second.

Lincoln pulled Michael back against his chest. “You know,” he murmured into his ear, “We have some time here before the guards get things under control and someone comes looking for me. Why waste it?”

Michael looked at him, intrigued and incredulous all at once. “Sucre is right up on that top bunk,” he hissed back.

“Ask me if I care,” Lincoln said, and he leaned into Michael’s mouth. He kissed him softly again and again, gently caressing Michael’s lips with his tongue. His arms came around Michael more tightly now, as he slowly sank down sideways on the bunk, taking Michael with him.

Michael gave up his protests instantly. God, it felt so good to lie here against Lincoln and just enjoy this without rushing. The tantalizing feeling of his mouth, the stroking of his tongue against Michael’s and his hands over Michael’s ass… Michael groaned into Lincoln’s mouth, turning his head sideways to deepen the kiss. The hands pressed him tighter into Lincoln’s hip, and Michael gasped as his hardness ground against Lincoln a little. Fuck Sucre. This was too good to pass up. His hands roamed over Lincoln’s muscled shoulders as he drank in the sensations of kissing and rubbing and touching.

“Well, well, well,” came Bellick’s voice through the doorway. Michael jerked back in shock. “What do we have here? Burrows, what are you doing in A-wing?”

“There was a problem, when the riot broke out. Figured I’d be okay here for the time being,” Lincoln said.

“Oh, I’d say you look more than just okay right now. Scofield, what do you have to say for yourself?” Bellick asked.

Michael just looked down, not meeting Bellick’s eyes.

“Well, you’d better come along now Burrows. We’ve got to get you back in your cell.”

“Actually… would you mind coming back a little later?” Lincoln asked.

Bellick’s eyes nearly popped, and Lincoln backtracked rapidly. “I mean, could I just stay awhile longer until you get everything settled down and all the A-wing prisoners back in their cells?”

Bellick gave a little half smile. “Burrows, are you seriously asking me to let you stay here and have some quality time with your Boy Toy for awhile?” he asked.

Lincoln laughed a little. “Well, yeah… I guess I am. How about it?” He looked at Bellick.

“All right,” Bellick said, shaking his head. “Don’t say I never did anything for you. We’ll be back around in a bit. You boys have fun.”

“Thanks,” Lincoln said. Michael turned to stare at him as Bellick continued on down the cell block.

“I can’t believe you actually did that!” he said.

“Well,” said Lincoln, “Sometimes it pays to just ask for what you want.”

“Speaking of what’s unbelievable,” Sucre called out from the top bunk, “Do you guys seriously think I want you going at it while I’m stuck up here in the same cell?”

“Uh,” Michael began. He stood up and looked over the edge of Sucre’s bed. “About that. I wouldn’t normally ask something like this, but… do you have some music headphones you could put on for awhile?”

“You’re shitting me,” Sucre said.

Michael shifted uncomfortably. God, was this ever awkward. “No, I’m really not. Could you do this as a favor, just this once?”

Sucre let out a deep breath, and rolled his eyes up to the ceiling. “All right,” he said finally. He pulled out his headphones, and turned the volume on high. “You want some lube too?” he joked.

“Well… yeah, that’d be great,” Michael stammered.

“I was kidding, man!” Sucre shook his head, and tossed him his Vaseline supply anyway. He put the headphones on, and waved Michael away.

Michael eased back onto the lower bunk, where Lincoln was staring at him with his mouth open. “What?” Michael said. “I just asked for what I wanted.”

What do you know, Lincoln thought. Michael had actually listened to him for a change. Lincoln smiled in disbelief. He took a moment to remove his bloodied shirt, then reached out and pulled Michael back onto the bed, running his fingers down the back of Michael’s head and just reveling in the feel of him.

Michael leaned down to kiss him again, working back to where they’d left off. He sucked and nibbled at Lincoln’s lips, sinking into him once again and kissing him deeper and deeper as his breathing quickened.

Lincoln grasped his arms, and gently rolled them over so that Michael was now on the bottom. He straddled Michael’s lap, running his hands over Michael’s face as he kissed him, and he smiled as he felt Michael’s arms come up around his neck. Pulling back, he lifted Michael’s shirt up from the bottom, and kissed his way along that taut stomach. He drew his tongue up the tattoo along the demon’s flank, and stopped to lick and nip at the nipple above it while his hands wandered over Michael’s body. He could feel the trembling under his fingers, and moved up to Michael’s neck, licking and sucking the most sensitive areas.

“Lincoln!” Michael gasped, and he tried to thrust up against him. Lincoln devoured Michael’s right earlobe. “God, Lincoln, would you just fuck me already?” Michael asked, squirming underneath him.

“Are you sure you’re ready for that?” Lincoln whispered. “Do you know what you’re getting into?”

“No, but I don’t care. I want it. With you,” Michael panted. “Now.”

Lincoln’s pants got impossibly tight at the sound in Michael’s voice, and he kissed Michael again and began struggling with his clothes. He got Michael’s pants off in record time, and shed his own even faster, settling down against Michael’s groin, skin to skin. Michael nearly jumped up off the bed at the sudden sensation of Lincoln naked against him. His legs spread to come around him, and his arms pulled Lincoln closer. Lincoln opened the lube, and began preparing Michael gently. “Last chance to bail out,” he said, but Michael only groaned and twisted underneath him. “What the hell is taking so long?” he gritted out, and it was so unlike Michael that Lincoln just laughed quietly.

He proceeded carefully, and then they were locked together, moving in rhythm with each other. Michael’s kisses were so passionate, so real. The look on his face, as he gazed at Lincoln with such openness and trust, made Lincoln’s heart clench. He moved to grasp Michael between them, and Michael’s sudden whimpering pushed him over the edge. He groaned, coming deep inside him, and Michael’s head lifted back in his own shuddering release. He pulled Lincoln down for another searing kiss, and then just held him, happiness flowing out of him and surrounding them both.

This was luxury. Lying here against Michael, half-dazed and spent with pleasure. Lincoln’s hand rubbed over Michael’s shoulder gently.

Up in the top bunk, Sucre was rock hard and really pissed off at himself for giving that lube away, not that he’d expected to need it. He never thought listening to other men having sex would turn him on, but it didn’t really seem to matter who was doing the moaning when it sounded like that. The headphones could only cover up so much. Damn, he thought. There wasn’t much he could do about it, with both of them awake down there, so he rolled over on his stomach and thought about sewers and deserts and waiting in line at the bank.

Michael nuzzled his head against Lincoln, an unbreakable smile on his face, and just enjoyed the moment. They would put their clothes on soon enough, and wait for the guards to come pick up Lincoln. But for now…this was enough.

*purrs* You're wonderful for writing this stuff. Love it.

In addition to being extremely hot, your characterization is spot on. I really like how you write Sucre too. It makes me chuckle. I particularly enjoyed the line about "[thinking] about sewers and deserts and waiting in line at the bank." Haha. Good stuff.

This was definitely worth the wait. :D

Glad you enjoyed it.

I've been sitting on this since the episode first aired, working up to it in this larger series.

Is it wrong that my Sucre voice even cracks me up?

Now that was a crazy ride. From "OMG, drama" to "OMG, funny" to "OMG, hot", back to funny again.

I love cocky "Ask me if I care" Lincoln, very funny. I love your Sucre, too funny. Plus, aaah, consumed with Passion!Michael.

I do have a hard time buying Bellick's reaction though.

But then I guess all is fair in the pursuit of smut, right?
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphorshalfshellvenus on October 28th, 2005 03:42 am (UTC)
Actually, I could see Bellick doing that. He doesn't like Michael, but he does like Lincoln. And he knows Lincoln's days are numbered. Plus, I'm sure Bellick has seen it all (and after poor Marilyn... done it all too).

I did promise this chapter would be good, didn't I? So hot. Can I keep them?

Man, I really thought you were gonna put the lid on the honey-pot when I read this line, but (luckily) you are good to your readers. ;)

"Lincoln’s pants got impossibly tight at the sound in Michael’s voice,"
That's funny, because my pants get impossibly wet at the sound of Michael's voice.

What do we need to do to get more chapters? Hmmmm, I've already baked cookies for your muse - shall we take up a collection?

Thanks for sharing the beautiful and steamy writing.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphorshalfshellvenus on November 3rd, 2005 07:05 am (UTC)
My pleasure.

Knowing that others are enjoying it too makes it all worthwhile.

Although sometimes I go back and re-read it, and it's like someone else wrote it. Then it's almost fresh for me all over again. Mmmmmmmmm.

Maybe my head's too crowded. Or maybe I'm going senile :->

But I guess this has its advantages!

Killed you ded with the sexiness? Yesssssssss!

This one is my favorite chapter, for obvious reasons :-) I wrote it right after Chapter 4, but had to work my way to it through some of the series plot that couldn't be ignored (Haywire, transfers, riot).

B: hairstrifechaos on January 6th, 2006 06:57 pm (UTC)
My brain has been fried by the delicious naughtiness the boys got into. Mmmmm. Smut galore. Luuurved it darling.

You kept them in character, even in their utterly hot and bothered scenes. Perfect ending. I can’t wait to check out your next fic.

Loved the reactions that the others had to finding them. Because I agree with you while Bellick doesn’t like Michael (which makes him a statistical anomaly) he does favor Lincoln (and who can blame him?) so I could see him doing this, I mean he doesn’t know they’re gonna escape. So granting him a little booty call isn’t that unreasonable. Plus if they’re sharing a little one-on-one time, well Lincoln can’t exactly be causing any mischief!

Sucre’s reaction to their bout of luuuurve making made me giggle. And his “solution”, hee. Priceless.

Loved your story. You’ve got a lot of talent at writing the boys. I can’t wait to read your next story. This totally made my day! *grins* *glomps* *waves*

Thanks so much! Glad you liked this series-- it's a refuge for those who enjoy angsty Brothercest in this pairing. There really isn't that much of it still. (as opposed to Supernatural, my other fandom, where Oh.My.God. I can barely keep up with the Wincest slash).

There will be more fics to come. My fanfic100 challenge is going to keep me busy :-)

Absolutely loved it! You have a great talent for writing.


Off to go read Always now.

So glad you enjoyed it!

"Always" is a Work In Progress (mainly because the show has been on hiatus for so long), but there is a bunch of Post-Escape stuff to read after it :)

And don't forget the Genfic!

Uh, Sucre's not the only one who got hot "listening" to Michael & Lincoln make love. ::wiggling eyebrows::
This one was pretty steamy, wasn't it? I had fun writing it, although writing the p0rn was definitely new to me. I went with my instincts, to write more about the feelings and sensations rather than the details of parts and slots, etc.

Glad you enjoyed this whole series. How did you happen to stumble over it? Rec? Friend of a friend?

Well!! If that couldn't satisfy my brothercest needs, nothing could!

Poor Michael; feeling guilty about the C.O.'s death and being comforted by Lincoln was very touching...

...and then there was actual...touching! Mmmmmm!

The only other things I have to say is you made Bellick look less of a bastard than the writers do on the show! And of course, God Bless Sucre!!

It's been wonderful!
*trots off to read Always*

XD Yes! Another happy customer...

He was initially more of a bastard with Michael and never with Lincoln. But after a few more episodes beyond this, well... I think he actually liked finding Michael in this situation, because he just can't stand him. Bellick is the kind of guy that doesn't like being shown up, and someone as smart as Michael can't help doing it. :0

And of course, God Bless Sucre!!
And was he ever funny in this chapter. :D

It's been wonderful!
Thank you! So very glad you enjoyed it! :D

That was so sweet! Poor Sucre lol.

I really enjoyed that. Nicely written. I take it then that Michael never told Sucre that Lincoln was his brother either?

Off to the next story!

Not yet, but that does come up in the next story.

So glad you liked this! It was quite the dangerous territory when I first wrote it, though the Michael/Lincoln pairing has lots of fans now, three years later. And that is all to the good, in my book. :)
thelimpshrimpthelimpshrimp on December 22nd, 2007 10:57 pm (UTC)
Hi! I've followed you here from Supernatural fandom and am enjoying this story immensely! You are one of my favorite writers in SPN and so when I recently became a huge Prison Break fan, I remembered seeing PB fanfiction from you and naturally checked it out, and, naturally, am thrilled with it. You manage to keep their voices so in-character, even T-Bag and Sucre, and that is just fantastic - to have not just Lincoln and Michaels' voices down, but the also-very-important secondary characters.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: PB slashhalfshellvenus on February 5th, 2008 08:44 pm (UTC)
I definitely remember your username from SPN-- it's hard to forget a name like that. :)

I recently became a huge Prison Break fan
The angsty brother-thing is really prevalent in both fandoms, though there are real differences in how they interact.

to have not just Lincoln and Michaels' voices down, but the also-very-important secondary characters.
Oh, I love the secondary characters! Abruzzi's the hardest one to write, honestly, but the others are so much fun. T-Bag especially.

I'm so glad you liked this, and thanks for leaving some comments!

(This pertains to the whole series.)

I wish I were in this story. In some ways, that's some of the highest praise that I can give you. It's even higher praise because I can't decide which character I would want to be! I love Michael in this so much, because in a lot of ways I have been where he was at the beginning.... It was a best friend, not a brother, so the taboo wasn't the same, but I know exactly what he was feeling when he bared his soul in the shed. But now I see why you think Lincoln is so hot, haha, and you really write him that way.

The progression of the chapters was flawless, with just enough plot to grab you and pull you along through the beautifully sexy intercourses (pun most definitely intended) without either detracting from the other. I have to echo skepticism at the awfully convenient Bellick reaction, but I can't say that the ends don't justify the means =)

In a lot of ways, this is the best fanfiction I have read since I stopped reading Seperis. You capture the characters so well and your style is so poetic and fluid. I also can't even fathom how you could possibly have such a detailed and frighteningly accurate idea of how two men really make love, as it's not an education that any amount of porn could ever impart =) But you do it beautifully, and for that you gain major points.

There is just so much awesome in this story that I can't possibly praise you for it individually, so I just have to say this: Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. The brilliance with which you write your characters only deepens my love for them, and makes me love the show just that much more.

Thanks so much!

Re: =O

I am more like Michael myself, but definitely more attracted to Lincoln. And the fact that Lincoln's character is so underwritten (and parts of Michael's are handwaved away with the LLI thing) just inspires me to try to rectify that. For a situation where one brother was willing to sacrifice his life, his future, his very soul for the other... the show did a poor job of explaining or demonstrating the reasons behind it. This-- the deeper love than just brotherly love that Michael feels for Lincoln-- is the best explanation for me.

I also can't even fathom how you could possibly have such a detailed and frighteningly accurate idea of how two men really make love

Fanfiction by other people, and lots of use of imagination and visualization. That last part is worth it, all by itself.

Your comments were so wonderful to read, especially some 3 years after this series was written. It's so rewarding to know that it's still worth reading all this time later, and that it still speaks to people. Thank you so very much for taking the time to leave detailed feedback!
