Note: Wishing the very happiest of birthdays to [info]omarandjohnny, who loves the Twins as much as I do. Here's a missing scene from the film. I hope you enjoy it!


They weren't supposed to be out. Nene knew this, and knowing it made their escape all the sweeter. It was like sprinkling powdered sugar on honeycakes, an unnecessary but delicious indulgence. Or maybe it was Angel's eyes that sweetened the night, the way they lit up when they saw the sparkling marquee. It was a risk, being out in public, but for that expression it was worth it.

They moved through the Midway like the twins they were called, at the same pace, the same length in their stride, seemingly aware of the other's presence even when they weren't touching. Only their faces were different, one wide-eyed as he devoured the huge constructions of steel and light, the other wary, alert to danger. They eschewed the rides, steering each other with bumping shoulders past screaming children and unwashed carnies, making their way unhurriedly to the arcade games. The shooting gallery was full of surly teens and would-be bad guys. Nene watched coolly as they were sized up, and grinned to see that Angel's baby face had fooled them all. He could have made a killing taking bets--no one would ever suspect the cherub could hit six out of six--but there'd been enough killing of late, and they weren't supposed to be out.

Instead of taking money from the marks he spent it on beers and pizza slices, marvelling at how much better they tasted than inside the safehouse. Angel wanted churros then, wanted them filled with sticky jellies and dipped in chocolate, and Nene who'd never before had a sweet tooth wanted to taste the sugar coating his tongue and his teeth and his lips. He nudged Angel with his elbow and led them down the narrow gap between two tents. Here on the backside of the carnival the lights didn't follow, and eyes didn't look too closely at who else might be around; here Nene finally could let down his guard. He grabbed hold of Angel's lapels and spun him around, spun him so his back was against the side of a truck and Nene was on the outside, perched between him and any danger. His kiss alone could threaten his twin now, and he dove into it violently enough to overwhelm any of Angel's objections. His desperation drowned in the saccharine sweetness, his aggression faded in the kiss's brief return.

All too brief. Nene was disarmed only to be shoved back, just far enough for Angel to sink to his knees before him. Hands clawed at his belt buckle, tugged at his fly, fingers with hair-trigger precision peeled back the cloth hiding his flesh. Nene felt the assault of cold air, chilly enough to make his balls, still swaddled in his underpants, twinge in sympathy. Then Angel's tongue cut a long, sticky stripe down his skin and cold was forgotten. Sensations spiralled through him up, the rarity of this feeling fuelling the surge up his spine, the ricochet back down to his toes, the world and everything in it growing and swelling until it was too much, far too much, and Nene crumbled at the intensity of it all.

Angel tormented himself with thoughts of sin and prayers for redemption, but since the first touch of his hand Nene had never found any sanctity more divine than this. If there was any heaven worth knowing, it was in these places they shared, the deserted toilets, the bare mattresses, the dark parking lots, anywhere this communion could be found. They weren't supposed to have it, but they did, and that made it all the sweeter.

As you know, the only thing I know about this movie is the two fanvids you've linked me to, and what you've told me about it, but my God, this is gorgeous. I love how you set the scene--I feel like I'm there with them with the rides and the noise and the smells. And I love how you use sweetness throughout--I was hooked with the very beginning:

It was like sprinkling powdered sugar on honeycakes, an unnecessary but delicious indulgence. Or maybe it was Angel's eyes that sweetened the night, the way they lit up when they saw the sparkling marquee.

And then the sexin! Like it's a shootout almost--or a contest--battle of wills. Guh, so hot. I really feel like you've captured the spirit of the film, from the little I know about it. And then the end--God, it's so bittersweet (knowing what I know *sniffles* I'm so gonna be a wreck when I see this movie) but man, it just ends perfectly.

If there was any heaven worth knowing, it was in these places they shared, the deserted toilets, the bare mattresses, the dark parking lots, anywhere this communion could be found.

So much love for that line. ♥

I love it! Johnny's gonna flip! :D

I can't wait until you see it! That might need to be a future bathtub soak, so we can all hold each other through it. I bawl like a baby every.Single.Time.

I'm tickled that you still like it, even without knowing the fandom. Thank you so much for giving it a try!

*and adores that you have a porn OTP*

Oh, Lil. What a wonderful birthday fic, thank you sooo much!

They moved through the Midway like the twins they were called, at the same pace, the same length in their stride, seemingly aware of the other's presence even when they weren't touching. Only their faces were different, one wide-eyed as he devoured the huge constructions of steel and light, the other wary, alert to danger.

You nailed it, right there. The movie twins and the real twins converged, and oh. OH. You know how sentimental I get with both sets of twins, so for you to bridge the gap with a wonderfully intimate glimpse, my heart is just, yeah :D

And such a gorgeous theme (you know I'm diving into raspberry sherbet and a viewing of the movie right after I finish commenting, yes indeed), it's a perfect fit to the film.

Thank you again, I love it, and I love you! ♥

Yay! I'm so glad that you liked it -- honestly, getting the real twins right was just a stroke of luck, since I haven't ever read the book. But I am so happy that you saw them in here.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Hi! I've come here by recommendation of [info]omarandjohnny, in my dasperate search of Plata Quemada fanfic. And yours is so cute!

I can just picture them walking at the same pace through the streets and knowing the other's right there, by their side. Always having the other in mind and protecting them. And Ángel, who can shoot anything and looks like a lost child, awww. Ángel, who wants churros. Sugar on his lips, hmmm.

He grabbed hold of Angel's lapels and spun him around, spun him so his back was against the side of a truck and Nene was on the outside, perched between him and any danger.

And then of course, sex! If there's something I missed from the movie is some adult content, actually between them, lol.

They weren't supposed to have it, but they did, and that made it all the sweeter. They aren't really supposed to have anything they have, right? They were supposed to be nice guys with a decent job, not criminals hiding abroad. But this is what they have, and they probably wouldn't change it for a quieter life without each other.

Thanks for writing, it's a really sweet fic!

Thank you so much for your lovely comment! Yes, I think so much of their story is about stealing, and not just money. I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

Eeepp!!! Look what I found! Happy, happy, happy!!!

How do you do that? How do you manage to catch their personalities and reactions so accurately? I'm in awe at your beautiful skills! and completely in love with these two ever since you pimped the movie to us. (I did thank you for that, didn't I? :D)
Guess who's going to rewatch the movie now? :P And it's all your fault and your fic's! (like I actually needed an excuse...)

Of course you can steal the icon! But I didn't make it, so just be sure to credit the maker.
