Thermal Bridge: flow of energy

When uninsulated materials come into contact, heat energy flows through the path created.


The mind is a camera. This is Billy's freeze-frame.

Charlie's sweat-slicked olive-skinned back torqued into a rigid arc...

A fist twisted in a tumble of dark curls...

Billy's cock sinking inside...

It disappears and he is lost.

His senses are aflame, pleasure spiking, centering on the searing heat squeezing him tight. A single point of contact - so much hotter than skin on skin Billy thinks this might end in immolation rather than orgasm despite the condom between them.

His free hand grips a hip; he watches his withdrawal with a sense of wonder until a whine reminds him that patience is not a virtue.

With sniper accuracy he aims, targets: shift, thrust, pound.

All that was promised, delivered. All that was offered, taken and taken hard.

Tension becomes tremble, turns taut. What's been simmering between them boils over and Charlie erupts, untouched.

Billy follows, flailing, foul-mouthed as always. He has heat with Charlie's name on it, after all, and he pours it into the vessel whose name tumbles from his lips.

Spent, they fall to earth, fall to the mattress, together...

Still not as good as I'd hoped and I'm a tiny bit disappointed I couldn't keep it to an R. It's awfully close, but once you have the word cock married to penetration you're pretty much in NC17 territory. Ah well. Not that porn is virgin territory for me. /grins/

Thermal Bridge yet again shamelessly nicked from Wikipedia. Having owned a house I know a thing or two about insulation so this concept made sense to me. In each of these fic I have to show that in essence Billy broke the rule, so in this one it's the idea that the heat is regardless of a supposedly insulating barrier (condom) between them.

Amusingly I managed to finish both first drafts of this and the final installment Thermal Break without *any* thought at all to putting the N100 prompt words in them! /headdesk/ I was so caught up in picking the right science and making it work I missed the part about making sure the prompt got referenced. Gah! Thankfully I woke the hell up as soon as I was done and left myself notes to make sure they went in on rewrites. That would have been unfortunate otherwise! /has a red face as comm mod/

I confess I had planned for the sex to last for parts 3 and 4, however that's not how it turned out. You get sex in this one and aftermath in 4. Sorry! But hey, one part flirting, one part foreplay, one part sex and one part aftermath? Seems pretty realistic to me. /shrugs/

Very special thanks to beta melissima for her assistance with this fic.

Billy and his foul mouth. I think this is what made it for me because I can see Billy cursing and such during this. Very nice, Em.

P.s. Did you get my email yesterday? Just wanting to make sure I hit the 'send' button.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on February 24th, 2009 03:14 am (UTC)
Thanks! I like the idea of foul-mouthed Billy more than I wanted to put the exact words in his mouth so this series leaves the dialogue to the imagination where it belongs. :-)

Did I not reply? /runs to look/ I didn't reply! Huh, I guess I was the one who didn't press send! Mea culpa. /scratches head/ Maybe because I replied so much on the previous one I got confused. Ah well, I shall turn my attention to it now, with a request for forgiveness at my faux pas. /bows/

A dirty tongue can be a great turn on.

No biggie. I just wanted to make sure it was not a figment of my hung over mind.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on February 24th, 2009 03:26 am (UTC)
Okay, I replied now. So if you don't get it? I can blame Gmail. ;-)

And yes, I love good dirty talk at the right time.

Can we have that again, only this time in slow motion? ;-)

Just part of my efforts to get you to see the splendor that is Charlie/Billy...

Done and Done. :)
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on February 24th, 2009 04:38 am (UTC)
Hee! And if all goes as planned? Tomorrow this *series* will be done as well. :-)

Wonderfully hot, but also very nicely written indeed.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on February 24th, 2009 07:56 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Considering I worked my hipbone yum ass off rewriting this one I believe I'll take that compliment. :-)

I love a good thudding in the morning. :-)

Would you mind awfully sending that off to he scriptwriters and pointing out how much better an episode would be if we could actually have the visuals to go along with?

Although given that I'm mostly dead from the written-word version, maybe visuals would be overkill...
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on February 25th, 2009 07:50 pm (UTC)
LOL Thanks! I'll get right on that the second Numb3rs is moved to HBO. /grins/

(BTW, the visuals are pretty mind melting in my head. /nods/)
