DVD Extras: In These Stones  
Title: DVD Extras: In These Stones
Author: [info]lilithilien
Fandom/Characters: Merlin, Bradley/Colin
Word Count/Rating: ~2000 words/NC-17 for porn and language
Summary: Cavesmut. That is all.
Disclaimer: This is a complete lie, completely the product of my warped imagination, and bears no resemblance to any reality. (Although I did borrow dialogue from Colin Morgan's video diary for the beginning and the end. YES! They really did say that!)
A/N: I thought I was getting my life back, I really did. And then those DVD extras came out, and Bradley tells Colin to wait in a dark part of the cave and that he'll come back for him, and just what am I supposed to do with that?!! Many heart-shaped boxes of chocolates should be heaped upon [info]sarcastic_jo for noting poorly executed porn logistics and all-around amazingness. (And yes, I know I'm using a Torchwood-related title, but ... the cave's in Wales, yeah, that's it!)

Colin: So which way is it to where I need to go?
Bradley: You need to go down there, mate. *points to dark deserted passage that is
obviously not the way to go*
Colin: I need to go down there?
Bradley: Yeah, yeah, I'll catch you up later.
Colin: All right, see you later. Um ... it's a bit dark...
— from Colin Morgan's Video Diary, Merlin Series 1 DVD extras

"Um ... it's a bit dark."

Bradley's only messing about, he knows that, but the hand that suddenly lands on Colin's shoulder still startles him. It's black as a moonless midnight outside the camera's thin light, but that doesn't stop Bradley from latching onto him with a sure grip and pushing him backwards until he's pressed flush against the cave wall. Colin lands with a thud that doesn't quite knock the breath out of him, but almost.

"Maybe you should turn the camera off?"

"Oh." Colin had actually forgotten it was still in his hand. He's focused only on how the chill of icy-cold stones bleeds through his thin shirt and freezes his back but his front is completely on fire. "But I think I'm supposed to capture everything that goes on on-set."

"It's a family show, mate," Bradley growls in that low, feral way he has, the one that always makes Colin shiver. "Don't think they'll want to see this."

And then Colin feels hands clasp both sides of his face, strong and sure. They pull him forward until his gasp of surprise is swallowed by Bradley's lips. Open, warm, wet, they're heartstopping even in the dark. A tongue tasting of sweet coffee sneaks inside and silences the protests in his head. Fifty people are standing just a few feet away—fifty people bored from hanging about between takes, anxious for a little amusement and some ammo to store up for later—but Bradley is here, and his tongue is lush as it sweeps over Colin's teeth and steals his breath away, and for a moment it's easy to forget that anything else exists.

But then voices break through from the passage just behind them, too close for comfort, and at the sound of laughter Colin twists his head away. "You know Katie's right behind us?"

"Yeah, but she didn't bring her camera, I checked."

And in the mind of Bradley James that probably makes some kind of sense.

Actually, with Bradley nibbling his way down the side of Colin's neck, it's starting to make sense to Colin as well. He tilts his head to give Bradley more access; he can't move back much, really he can only turn his cheek against the frigid rock, but it's enough that Bradley attacks the job with renewed vigour. Colin probably never should have admitted to a neck fetish; between the abuse he's taken over that fecking neckscarf and getting slagged for vampire fantasies, Colin should probably regret it. But right now, with sharp teeth scraping over his Adam's apple, with a tongue laving the hollow of his throat, with the air chilling his skin after burning lips have vanished, he regrets nothing.

Bradley grinds against him, pressing so hard that Colin's sure the cave wall will surely have to give. Hands slide inside his jacket and sweep down his sides, hard and solid, and Colin can't help but smile even if they are stretching his costume horribly out of shape. Bradley does this every single time, holding him in a grip so firm, like he wants to make sure that Colin's real. If he's got a neck fetish, then he thinks Bradley's got one for the feel of Colin's ribs under his fingers. Back at the hotel this exploration might take hours, leaving Colin writhing and demanding fuck me already now dammit. Now Bradley moves more quickly but his hand's no less heavy; Colin groans in anticipation of what's to come.

Then a hand he can't see slithers over the point of his hipbone, down the crease of his thigh, insinuating itself between their bodies. Bradley's fingers spread and cup Colin's erection and squeeze, he fucking squeezes as he threatens, "I ought to just rip these bloody trousers in two." His voice is pitched low and dangerous again, and it's almost worth facing the wrath of Costume. Not like it'd be the first time.

"God, no," Colin finally grunts, but it doesn't sound convincing even to his ears. To keep himself from giving in, he slithers his hands inside Bradley's jackets. He's all bundled up, a raincoat atop the long hunting coat that Arthur favours (and Colin fancies), but eventually Colin finds the band of Bradley's trousers and dips his fingers under. Over bare skin they glide, dragging the stretchy fabric over the swell of his arse, shoving them all in a bundle down broad thighs.

Bradley's a quick study, thank god for that, and in an instant Colin's leggings are pooled at his feet beside the camera. Colin tosses them aside, sparing a quick hope that they'll not get too mucky down there, but at the moment he can't be fussed. "Hurry up," he urges, feeling for Bradley's bum in the dark and yanking him closer. Hooking his leg around Bradley's calf helps too; a warm weight falls onto Colin, pressing him back against the stone until there's not an inch to spare. It freezes his bare skin and he yelps, trying to press his hips forward, but he's completely pinned against the wall.

"Impatient, are we?" huffs Bradley, and his laughter quakes across Colin's chest. Then he grips Colin's thigh and drags it higher even as he thrusts. At once everything slots into place—their mouths, their hips, their two erections standing side by side. And Colin really should be used to it by now because that's pretty much how it always is with Bradley but he's still overwhelmed, every single fucking time.

"Got any lube?" Bradley asks while sliding his hands to fit neatly around Colin's arse. They're scorching hot, those hands, with fingernails that cut into his flesh, that grapple at his cheeks and spread them wide. Colin presses back against the sharp bites, against the icy stone, against his incipient orgasm already coiling to strike, and it's a second before he realises he's supposed to answer.

"I've no pockets," he manages to choke out.


Bradley groans out the word, raw and multi-syllabic, and there's any number of ways to interpret it. Colin knows which he prefers. "Yeah, do," he says. He's still stretched loose from this morning, when they'd very nearly missed the Mystical Van of Evil because Bradley was being such a tease. Colin pays him back now by spitting in his hand and slicking it over Bradley's cock; he loves how it seems to swell more with each stroke. "Do it anyway."

There's a pause just long enough for Colin to picture the dubious look. "You sure?"

"Oh yeah, deffo." He throws in a persuasive thrust of his hips for good measure, angling them just right to elicit another deep groan from Bradley. Colin swallows up the sound in his kiss, his lips reassuring, his tongue wanton, banishing any doubt that this is what he wants.

Fingernails dig eight half-moon trenches in Colin's bum as he's lifted, as he's opened up, as he's spread so wide that Bradley hardly need push; he slips inside like it's exactly where he belongs. Colin moans against Bradley's mouth as he sinks, gravity and lust dragging him down so swiftly that the sound's forced from his lungs, leaving him gasping and scrabbling at Bradley's shoulders with Bradley balls-deep inside. Hips start to pump into him, to slam into him. They lift him with each thrust, and Colin arches his spine to meet each one. The rough rock behind scratches and threatens to rip his jacket, but he reckons that even the cave's collapse couldn't diminish this intense feeling of being stretched so wide, being filled so completely.

"God that's so fucking… christ so tight… Colin fuck…" And for all Bradley's claims that he doesn't swear, Colin's heard him utter some positively filthy things, always when they're fucking and always when Bradley's about to come undone. Knowing it's because of him—that it's because he clenches his hole tight each time Bradley lifts him up, because he lets his muscles loose so Bradley slides right back in, deeper each time—makes Colin's climax surge.

Sloppy kisses and dirty words plastered across his throat help drive it even higher, and it's almost an afterthought that sends Colin reaching for his cock. It's almost too much, piling that sensation on top of everything else. It's like that one time his brother talked him into the parachuting thing, in that long moment when he stood at the edge of the plane and it was suddenly too much but not enough at the same time. For a second he hangs there on the edge, suspended between Bradley and the cave wall, and it's hard to tell which feels more solid as he rocks from one to the other. And then … and then it's just as easy as taking a step into thin air. Pressing his thighs tighter around Bradley, Colin lets himself go, feels himself fly, as his orgasm rockets through his every cell. Even though the cave is still dark as pitch his vision is filled with stars.

A wild keening sound reels him back, that and Bradley's final deep thrusts that feel like some last ditch effort to crawl up inside him. Colin's arm tightens around his shoulders as he rides out the last frantic rhythm. Even after it shudders to stillness, Bradley stays levered against him like he couldn't stand otherwise, which is probably true. Colin's own legs quiver as he tries to make them work again. He thinks it's probably best not to demand too much at first; lining his body up long against Bradley's is quite enough, with the cold rock imprinted on his back feeling oddly comfortable now. These caves have harboured centuries of secrets, Colin thinks suddenly. Now he and Bradley have joined this history of bandits, lovers, and refugees, forgotten by all save these watchful stones. Maybe nothing as legendary as King Arthur, but it makes Colin press a smiling kiss into Bradley's cheek anyway.

Bradley rouses his head at that. Although Colin can't see him, he can well imagine his blue eyes sated with bleary contentment. "Wow, that was…" he pants.

"Yeah," agrees Colin without hesitation.

Bradley digs out tissues from his pockets—"always prepared," Colin teases; Bradley's jacket rustles as he makes either the Scout sign or a two-fingered salute—and then shifts away as they dress. Colin shivers, feeling a lot colder now bundled up in clothes than he did while the cave's chill leeched into his half-naked body.

"They think you're mucking about in here," comes his voice from near the cave entrance. Colin thinks they know exactly what they're doing in here, but he lets Bradley continue. "So if you turn on the camera in the dark and stumble around a bit they'll never suspect a thing." There's more rustling as Bradley moves around in the dark, no doubt demonstrating the stumbling that he wants Colin to do. Pitching his voice oddly high, he crows, "Colliiin."

Colin nearly drops the camera as he cackles. "You're completely mad, you know that?"

"Colliiin… follow my voice, Colliiin…"

"I can't see a thing," Colin laughs, but he does—follow, that is. Following Bradley has become a habit he can't break. Not that he's tried very hard.

And then he turns the corner and shadows disappear into light. "Oh, wait a minute, there we go."

"This is the way," Bradley says, suddenly back to his serious self.

"This is the way, actually." Taking his place two steps behind Bradley, Colin slips out of history and back into Merlin. Only these stones will remember they were here.

~~~ The End~~~

YAY! Guh is a quite satisfactory response! I'm so happy that you liked it. I always fear I'm including too many details -- I'm glad that it worked for you!!

(I know it! I'm not either! Really! Just the things they say to each other, it's just ... Colin really did go into a dark cave because Bradley told him to, and Bradley really did follow him in to make funny noises, and I just can't help myself ... *flails*)

Oy. You know how to deliver the goods on Valentines', don't ya, bb??

This was so fricken hot I had to run right off and rewatch the extras from the DVD's. It is also entirely possible it caused me to spend 30 minutes informing my husband that yes, Colin and Bradley really and truly are shagging one another every time those cameras are not turned on them. :)

You will continue supplying me with such proof, correct?

Completely wonderful! Definitely worth the three reads so far this evening. :)

Happy Valentine's!

Lilith: merlin-arthur2[info]lilithilien on February 15th, 2009 11:00 pm (UTC)
Hahahahah! And was your husband convinced of this undeniable truth? I am definitely working on supplying more proof, yes, but between the cheekbones comment and rushing over to check that Colin's okay after his stunt, I think the DVDs do a pretty good job on their own.

OK, please indulge my silliness here for a minute, but have you seen this video? At about 2:15, Colin's talking about being proud of his stunt, and you can just see Bradley's face tense up, which I thought was kinda awkward when I first saw it a few months ago. But now, after seeing him rush over after the stunt, I cannot get it out of my head that he did not *like* that Colin was endangering himself like that... which of course leads to all kinds of thoughts of him carefully inspecting Colin later for bruises...

I need to back away from the Merlin, don't I?

A very happy (if belated) valentine's day to you, darling. Go get some half-priced chocolate now!

My husband is totally convinced. Of course, he already starts every conversation about Merlin to people who have never seen it as to how gay it is, but after having him watch a few behind-the-scenes vids? He is convinced that Bradley is the gayest man who ever gayed. Honestly, he loves teasing me about it and making me wail in denial.

And you are not being silly! Bradley *totally* tenses up at that moment - I mean, the smile literally melts from his face. It's almost comical, like, did he practice that?? It happens so perfectly. And I honestly don't know how many times I have rewatched him running to check on Colin and that little smile Colin gives him.

Umm, so what I am really saying is, have you written this whole inspecting bruises fic yet??? Huh??

*flaily hands* We all need to step away from the Merlin. Trust me. Between the fics I've read this weekend, and rewatching Behind-the-Scenes stuff, I've laughed and cried and oy, my face kinda hurts.

I need a new hobby.

I have not started the inspecting bruises fic yet -- it must be done!! -- but I did start another one yesterday. And I was all set to work on it this evening, but then I read Derryere's RPS of Doom and since then I've been totally flailing over just how perfect it is!!! Have you read it? Go, now, it's the most amazing epic RPS ever and I can't love it any more!!!

[info]aelora on February 15th, 2009 11:24 pm (UTC)
Heh. I will tell him you said so. He handles this stuff amazingly well...

AND YES!! I definitely read the RPS OF DOOM today. I got sidetracked from working on my own fic (when did a one-shot turn into a series???) when coffeejunkii emailed me going "YOU'VE GOTTA READ THIS FIC!!" And I was like O_o, and so I read it. And I cried - yes, cried - when they ran to each other and hugged and apologized and I'm still flailing over Bradley crawling into bed with Colin and shaking.

So yeah. I have accomplished little today.

*meep* I'm not fishing for compliments, honest! Just ... this new one is in its fragile embryonic state where it wants to be nurtured and coaxed, and reading about Bradley trembling in bed beside Colin made it a bit shy. Don't worry, it'll come back!!

I'm going to pimp it to others on my flist, too. It could be easily taken over by Merlin. *g*

Well, I'm not sure about the RPS, but your Arthur/Merlin fics? Hell, yes! Come on, it's an Arthurian Slash comm - those folks can't be really "serious".

Also, there are only 10+ guys there at the moment. We Merlin fans could easily take over. And seeing that there are only three little entries so far I'd say that comm needs every help it can get. *g*

I love your Bradley/Colin RPS so much. Your Bradley and Colin voices are spot on to me! As I am just starting to really pay attention to the DVD extras and interviews, I realize that your RPS stories really tie in to their antics on screen. I love that layer of 'realism' even though we all know it's fake.

Thanks so much for sharing and I can't wait to read more of your stories!
