Numb3rs Fic: Coming Up Short  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #239 – Short

Title: Coming Up Short
Pairing/Characters: Don/Charlie/Billy
Rating: NC17
Word Count: 300
Spoilers: Man Hunt
Summary: Be careful what you wish for
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

No matter how many times Don assures Charlie that he's all he needs, Charlie still acts like Don's going wanting, like he's coming up short. Don swears to Charlie he's not pining for any past lovers, but Charlie seems certain Don needs an alpha.

The weekend away is Don's request when Charlie asks him what he wants for his birthday, but the surprise guest he finds waiting there when they arrive is Charlie's idea.


Don's still stunned, looking back and forth between Billy in the room and Charlie locking the door behind them, when Billy slams him up against the wall, whiskey rough voice rumbling in his ear.

"I hear you missed me, Eppes."

Before Don can protest, Billy crushes their mouths together and it all comes flooding back: rough careless sex in dingy motel rooms, the adrenaline rush of fighting and fucking, giving his back to the man who saved his ass.

He struggles, but Billy just pins him, always the stronger one. He flails at first, forgetting what it was like to be dominated, then switches off in sweet surrender as Billy's coarse hands roam his body, reclaiming lost territory.

His head's spinning as Billy spins him to face the wall, as Charlie's nimble fingers unbutton his jeans. He knows he should protest, but all that comes out are pants as Charlie swallows him down and Billy's cock spears him, sending his brain offline with one jolt.

It's too perfect: Charlie's talented mouth sucking him off as Billy unerringly nails that spot inside that makes his body sing.

He goes taut with a primal yell, shuddering through a truly mind-blowing release.

He sinks bonelessly to the floor where Charlie searches his eyes for answers Don can't hide.

Don didn't need this.

But unfortunately now he craves it.

It came up in conversation recently that I apparently never published any Don/Charlie/Billy threesome fic.

/blinks in amazement/

Clearly that had to be rectified. ;-)

FWIW the summary's not quite right: it should be something like 'Charlie learns he should have been careful what Don wished for' but that's way too unwieldy for me to distill into a summary at 2AM.

Coming Up Short
Oh! J'aime!

It's difficult to know what Don really want! He's so secretive! Above all for Charlie.

But well, maybe Charlie know him better than himself.

Re: Coming Up Short

I like my angst so I had to add a healthy dose even though this was supposed to be a porny threesome fic.

(But it should make you happy to know last night I wrote the first sequel in the Harborverse: A Day in the Life. It's about 6500 words. /smiles/)

Look how happy you made the Don in my icon. Of course, pauvre Charlie- I need a sad woobie icon for him. The ending killed me! All this uber alpha hot-Hot-HOT and then, wham! Instead of satiating what he thought Don needed, he inflamed it. Guh. u must rectify this at once. It's obvious Charlie arranged this delicious and oh-go-yummeh threesome because he was feeling insecure. You clearly must comfort him with some more really hot threesome sex and help him see that the best course of happiness is making sure they become an OT3. Clearly. U know Billy would love him some curly headed genius....and the eppes brothers NEED a fun redhead in their lives so they won't be soooo serious all the time..... Sounds to me like this really should be a series. I'm just saying. [heheheheheh }:-{)] go ahead. just try and resist OT3 temptation. Think of all the combinations.....mmmmmmmm

OMG Triangulation isn't enough for you? You evil enabler you!

No promises, but I'll consider poking these three with a stick again later. After all there's a new prompt every week at N100 that I have to write.

FWIW I had bits in my head before I put in the angsty ending where Charlie wanted to go next and Billy was ready to put in an order for his own birthday. ;-)

/♥s you and all your lovely comments/

Awww, DONNIE, just enjoy something for once! An experience that hot should've melted your brain and rendered you incapable of angsting!

Sorry, hon. Don has EPIC powers of angst. It might just be his kind of genius. ;-)

Thanks, hon!

Gah. I lack words. I like this a lot.

Don just has to go and make everything angsty, doesn't he? Even porn. Charlie really needs to learn to leave well enough alone.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on November 27th, 2009 11:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

Don angst is such a natural state - he's just like that. And Charlie? Yeah the curse of the genius is to always think they know best. Oh, Charlie. No no no...
