A Momentary Abberation

A nice little atmospheric fic: Doyle and Bodie cuddling in a car.

A Momentary Abberation by LH

In fact just looking at Bodie made him feel better.

He was hunched up facing him, one leg curled underneath him, the other dangling loosely from the seat, his hands snuggled under his jacket for warmth, hugging his waist, his face peaceful and relaxed, and starkly pale in the flashing headlamps of the oncoming cars.

And he looked so vulnerable to Doyle's probing eyes, ex-mercenary or not... long lashes fanning onto too pale cheeks, hair ruffled, wide, pouting lips slightly parted.

I don't believe it! I've just included this one in a Visions post (I hope you don't think I'm copying you?!)

No, I don't think so :-)

You know what I did before I posted it? Went over to your LJ and checked quite a number of entries (til September 2009 I think) back to see if you have mentioned it recently.

It wouldn't matter because you always say something about it which I never do, but I just didn't want you to think I was being lazy and copying ideas from you! When you mentioned Bardicvoice a while back I'd just discovered her and selected a story and when you mentioned Jojo's story I'd just included another one at a Visions post (I haven't finished or posted the ones with the latter two authors yet). It's really uncanny or great minds think alike! By the way, I forgot to say that LH's story is a really good choice and thank you for mentioning it.

Thanks, too.

And honest, it didn't even cross my mind that you might be copying me, before you mentioned it yourself. :-)

Thank you! I love fic recs because I get introduced to new stories and reminded of older ones (or even introduced to older ones I haven't come across before).

Mmm lovely, I do like carfics. As you say, very atmospheric and yearny. Thanks for the rec :)

and yearny. Indeed! :-) Glad you liked it.

I found this one recently and liked it, but it was much better second time around. The actual physical mechanics of how they were sitting in the car weren't very clear the first time.

Reading it again, she's got Bodie absolutely perfect, whether it's Doyle watching him or it's Bodie's point of view.

It's such a fun genre, 'carfic' - should be more of it.

I can't remember reading something like it, only car conversation fics. :-)
