Numb3rs Fic: Thermodynamics  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #197 – Hover


Title: Thermodynamics
Series/Universe: Thermodynamics
Pairing/Characters: Charlie/Billy
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 200
Spoilers: Man Hunt
Summary: Billy breaks a law of thermodynamics by making heat out of thin air
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ


The First Law of Thermodynamics: conservation of energy.

Energy can change from one form to another, but it can neither be created nor destroyed.

+

Heat rises.

It rises off Charlie's small frame as Billy hovers over him, pressing him against the dark hallway wall in the back of the bar with the force of his adrenaline fueled want alone.

This radiating heat can't be from the stifling stale air or the too many layers the little professor covers himself up in. Some of it has to be for him.

Two, maybe three days of scraggly red beard bristles against a dark stubbled cheek as Billy lowers his mouth, voice sandpaper rough and slow southern drawl in Charlie's ear.

He breathes the words hot on tender flesh, a freckled lip grazes heated skin.

Not a request: a statement of intent, of what's to come once Billy gets him back to his motel room.

He throws fuel on the fire with a brush of hips; the flame flares.

Charlie's lips part, breath quickens. A bead of sweat trickles down his temple, down that long neck.

Even an academic has a flashpoint.

Dr. Charles Eppes combusts at a temperature of Billy Cooper degrees.

Confession
An experiment in four parts; a Charlie/Billy drabble series using all the February prompts at N100.

Sadly, this didn't turn out anywhere as good as I first envisioned. I'm not saying it's bad, it's just not amazing like it was in my head. /frowns/ /is displeased/

First Law of Thermodynamics shamelessly nicked from Wikipedia.

Very special thanks to beta melissima for her assistance with this fic and thanks to everyone I asked to take a look at it, hoping that would push me to make it better.

Thanks,

Emma DeMarais

Re: Confession
The more I think about this drabble (which is extraordinarily difficult to contemplate cerebrally, being as that it MELTED MY BRAIN) the more I think it's one of those times when it may not match what the writer envisioned but it's really awesome to everyone else.

At least I know I find it really awesomely hot.

Thanks! That line almost makes the rest of it worthwhile for me. :-)

Nice story!
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on February 9th, 2009 02:32 am (UTC)
Thanks!

/gets distracted by your icon yet again/

BTW, I sent someone to your LJ today just to see the Ianto gifs. Hee! Always enjoyable!

Oh man. You can write these two so hot and dirty. I'm really hoping for smut later in the month. Yes?
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on February 9th, 2009 03:17 am (UTC)
Hehehe Thank you.

And yes, there might just be a chance this series won't remain PG13... ;-)
ladygray99ladygray99 on February 9th, 2009 04:23 am (UTC)
give me billy/Charlie smut and I'll give you two smutty rewind series by the end of the month.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on February 9th, 2009 04:27 am (UTC)
"Are we negotiating?"

"Always."

Hehehe

My only caveat is that the first in the series didn't go as planned so I fear the three others might not go as planned either. I certainly *want* them to be hot and at least R. I mean, come on! With a prompt like Inside, how can I *not* write sex?

And yay for more Rewinds!

Got two typed and the third written. Just need to get the femslash one done.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on February 9th, 2009 04:53 am (UTC)
Ooh!

I said today I'd probably write Nikki/La-La. Too bad we didn't see David and La-La. That might have been kind of pretty too.
perhaps some frottage is in order: [numb3rs] Colby skeptical or maybe tiredsororcula on February 9th, 2009 04:33 am (UTC)
Mmmm, nice. I like this a lot!
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on February 9th, 2009 04:52 am (UTC)
Thanks! I hope more people write Charlie/Billy this month for N100.
Whitneycsichick_2 on February 9th, 2009 03:46 pm (UTC)
Not a pairing I ever would have even considered, if not for N100, but it works. And as someone taking a class in thermodynamics, I'm totally geeking out right now.

Very nice, Emma! I especially liked the first and the last lines.

::giggles:: that was brilliant!

Wonderful drabble. Hotter than many NC-17 drabbles that I have read.

He breathes the words hot on tender flesh, a freckled lip grazes heated skin.

I love this line. Dear lord, I can so picture it.

I really, really like this. You have several great lines in here. I particularly love these:

This radiating heat can't be from the stifling stale air or the too many layers the little professor covers himself up in.

Two, maybe three days of scraggly red beard bristles against a dark stubbled cheek as Billy lowers his mouth, voice sandpaper rough and slow southern drawl in Charlie's ear.

Even an academic has a flashpoint.

A great job with the slow burn. Well done!

The drabble certainly gets a hell of a lot in. Unfortunately, all other helpful comments have been exploded by this:

Dr. Charles Eppes combusts at a temperature of Billy Cooper degrees.

Not capable of anything else, just about now.

"Dr. Charles Eppes combusts at a temperature of Billy Cooper degrees" wow that´s a pretty hot new formula
amazing fic
