The space between

Slouching towards completion...There are now three stories here. Oh, yes, I know you're all thrilled. Well, I am, actually. I have four of these written, total, but the story is glacially changing its direction, so we're still working out the perimeters of possible change, my beta-ladies and myself. Yeah, I'm moving like molasses through this fandom. :>

Assume, by the way, that all stories listed here are designed to be read by those eighteen or older, or the equivalent in your country of origin. "Torture", for example, is rated NC-17. I frequently write NC-17 stories. So if you're not comfortable with intensely sexual images of a frequently homoerotic nature...well, poppet, what on earth are you doing reading slash sites, anyway? Flee, darling, before the evil homosexuals eat you all up.

"Torture" "Frustration" "Persuasion"

By the way...

I swear to my gods, I had no idea this song existed. No, I take that back; I knew the song existed, but trust me, I didn't connect the song to the title I chose for this page. But it's almost scarily apt, so I had to go grab the lyrics.

Dave Matthews Band
"The Space Between"

You cannot quit me so quickly
Is no hope in you for me
No corner you could squeeze me
But I got all the time for you, love
The space between
The tears we cry
Is the laughter keeps us coming back for more
The space between
The wicked lies we tell
And hope to keep us safe from the pain

But will I hold you again?
These fickle, fuddled words confuse me
Like 'Will it rain today?'
Waste the hours with talking, talking
These twisted game we play

We're strange allies
With warring hearts
What wild-eyed beast you be
The space between
The wicked lies we tell
And hope to keep us safe from the pain

Will I hold you again?
Will I hold...

Look at us spinning out in
The madness of a roller coaster
You know you went off like a devil
In a church in the middle of a crowded room
All we can do, my love
Is hope we don't take this ship down

The space between
Where you're smiling high
Is where you'll find me if I get tickled
The space between
The bullets in our firefight
Is where I'll be hiding, waiting for you
The rain that falls
Splash in your heart
Ran like sadness down the window into...
The space between
Our wicked lies
Is where we hope to keep safe from pain

Take my hand
'Cause we're walking out of here
Oh, right out of here
Love is all we need here
The space between
What's wrong and right
Is where you'll find me hiding, waiting for you
The space between
Your heart and mine
Is the space we'll fill with time
The space between...
