Prison Break - It’s not like...  
Title: It’s not like...
Author: clair_de_lune
Characters: Caroline Reynolds/Samantha Brinker
Category: Femslash
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~ 150
Disclaimer: Not mine. Just borrowing them for a while.
Summary: It’s not like she actually needs this kind of compromising intel to hold Reynolds in the palm of her hand.
Author’s Note: Thanks to tuesdaeschild for the read-through.


This is the last fic of the stack I initially wrote for Femslash Day. I swear ;)

It’s not like it’s a huge sacrifice. Samantha already had to put up with worse stuff, more unpleasant stuff.

It’s not like she actually needs this kind of compromising intel to hold Reynolds in the palm of her hand. She already has shit-load of compromising intel. Furthermore, she can make up more if she ever needs it.

It’s not like they actually screw. It never goes very far, actually. They never fully undress, they never kiss, they never ever mention it once it’s over. Just hands discreetly slipping under clothes and into damp warmth, stroking expertly, getting off the other one with a minimal amount of effort. They pant and gasp and shudder; worst case scenario, they utter a strangled moan and writhe in the backseat of Reynolds’ black limo or up against a wall.

It’s not like it’s going to last. But so far? Samantha kind of likes it.

Even drabbles starring evil ladies enjoy comments *g*

Great little ficlet on a theme! I like the way you progress and have the next to last sentence set off with a 'but'. It sums the piece up, saying that despite everything it's not, it's something she likes.

You are brilliant with the way you tell a story. You're not afraid to write in different lights, and they're done very well. You also have a happy medium in your description and details. I am not one to write about walking into a room and describing every detail my character sees all the way down to the crack in the window. If it pertains to the story in some way, I will, but if it doesn't, then nobody should care about the damn crack in the window! Lol! You move your stories forward, but you don't overwhelm us with things we don't need to know. I've never had any desire to skip over parts in your story, and that's a rare thing sometimes.

Great job on this, my dear. It was fun to read! =^;^=

Thanks a lot for the nice feedback!

I've rarely felt the need to describe, or over-describe, when writing fanfic (I might have the reverse issue on a couple of occasions, though, assuming... I don't know, maybe that people could read my mind :-p): we already know what the characters look like, sometimes we're already familiar with the settings and places.

If it pertains to the story in some way, I will, but if it doesn't, then nobody should care about the damn crack in the window!

This is so true. If it doesn't serve a purpose... boring. Boring to read but also boring to write.

it's something she likes

Although probably not only for 'good' reasons, and I would say that Reynolds is as pragmatic and unemotional as Brinker about the whole thing. (I know you're not familiar with the show, but I don't know if you know nothing at all about it or have a few hints nonetheless: both characters are... not nice.)
