"Regularly scheduled programming" being this  

This apparently needed a sequel, even though I'm no more certain how this universe works than when I posted the first story! Blame Che for being an enabler.

Title: The Go-Ahead
Pairing: FOXHOUND-era Big Boss/Miller
Rating: Mild R again because I deal in frustration NSFW
Word Count: ~300
Summary: Big Boss decides to settle the score.
Notes: This is pretty much just a companion to 'Know the Drill'. Same general setting, different scene; they switched places, I switched perspective.

The Go-Ahead

The wall is like ice on his hands but gets barely any acknowledgement against the presence of Big Boss, the calculated ferocity he still hasn't readjusted to after all the years he'd gone without it. And although Big Boss isn't quite the man he remembers, the similarity that remains is enough.

Through his sunglasses, he's watching the puffs of condensation in the air. It's the only thing to remind him this is, in fact, a chilly morning. With Big Boss draped over him from behind, Miller himself still in most of his clothes, it's very easy to disregard.

Big Boss's hands slip under his shirt – he's not wearing gloves, is he? – the touch more frustration than encouragement. It only makes Miller more conscious of the other's breath on his neck, the brush of a cold nose against his cheek, the taunting lightness of it all. Impatient, he shifts his weight and reaches down–

“You call that getting even?” Big Boss whacks his hand away. Slams it back up against the wall, making him groan.


But the point is so obvious that he concedes it, hovers at the edge as Big Boss takes his sweet time. At least it's sweet for someone, here. He waits, little more than a shaking mess, for Big Boss's control to start to fray. It has to, sooner or later.

It does.

When he finally picks up the pace, it's all Miller can do not to lose it then and there anyway. Afterwards he is sure that he would have, hadn't it been for Big Boss's strangled cry in his ear and the gloved hand finishing him off without compromise.

They remain like that for a while, slumped against each other and the wall. It is then that Miller registers Big Boss's arms wrapped around his torso as an embrace.

He wants to call him Snake again, but says nothing.

*gladly takes the blame for this fic*

I am seriously tempted to just hit the capslock key and type in random letters to express the jizzworthiness of this fic. But I won't. I will try to write something meaningful and see how long it takes before I give in. XD

Again, I love the writing style in this! Especially how it's in the present tense since the setting's fastforwarded from Peace Walker, so it's like in the present day...except the Foxhound era was like in the past so it should really still be in past tense so this doesn't make sense but WHO CARES, it all works with the fic!

I also like how you didn't just make this fic "CAN I JIZZ YET?" "NO", proves that jizz approval can actually be pretty hot! not that shouting out in capslock that you need to jizz isn't hot in itself

The last two sentences really struck me - and I know you said you were being anal >B) trying to think for a while to put in. XD But yeah, so beautiful and sad! In fact I loved it so much I'm going to quote it. FOR GREAT JUSTICE.

"It is then that Miller registers Big Boss's arms wrapped around his torso as an embrace. He wants to call him Snake again, but says nothing."


I really do wonder what happened between Snake and Kaz after Peace Walker. Guess I'll have to stack up on more Kaz porn until they announce PW 2! *hint hint* >B)

Thanks for writing this - you never fail to impress me with your fics and I'll have you know I really enjoyed reading this one!

...now can I finally jizz all over the keyboard? >B)
See you later, instigator: Kaz Miller - peaceoudeteron on November 7th, 2010 10:32 pm (UTC)
Haha, that would've been an eloquent expression of jizzworthiness in its own right! XD

I'm really glad you like the writing because this is my favourite style. And I like the idea of "fast-forwarded from PW", very fitting for what goes on here (regardless of the tense, heh).

"CAN I JIZZ YET?" "NO" is still at the core of this fic! But yes, spoiler, I do find jizz approval hot. How convenient we've made it a meme... XD well yeah that version is more desperate

Ahaha, glad to hear my anal-ness if that's even a word paid off with the ending! The GREAT JUSTICE OF QUOTING, I am humbled. >B)

*is more than willing to provide for your Kaz porn stash till then*

Aww, thank you. I'll have you know your comments always boost my morale!

...approval granted. >B)

...Damn. Just wow.

"...although Big Boss isn't quite the man he remembers, the similarity that remains is enough." (This line just feels so...bittersweet.)

"...the touch more frustration than encouragement" (>O Tension much?)

"He wants to call him Snake again, but says nothing." (Ahhhh! >_< OMSLF)

Those lines--no, this whole fic is very well-written. I'm amazed at how you consistently and skillfully put so much emotion into these short pieces. I only wish I could do the same. /._.\

Thank you lots! I tried to make it bittersweet but not melodramatic, hence the short format and persistent subtext. XD I'm glad it worked for you~

And I'm good at short loaded stories because I lack the attention span for writing long, hehe.
