Title: Five Kisses - 3 of 5
Pairing: Hunt/Tyler
Summary: DCI Hunt is not a loveable man.
Rating: PG for the man!kissing
Spoiler Warnings: Only general show stuff. No specific events mentioned.
Word Count: 632
Disclaimer: Life on Mars, DCI Hunt and Sam Tyler are owned by the BBC. I ph34r the TV license so will not steal.
Notes: It's kinda unusual for me to actually get excited about a pairing but something about the Hunt/Tyler dynamic really gets to me. Although I'm willing to bet it's partially because of Phillip Glenister being Mr Hobbs. He will always be Mr Hobbs to me. As usual - feedback = love and unbeatead.

Gene Hunt isn’t the kind of man you fall in love with, Sam thinks, he’s not the type to romance you sweetly with flowers and chocolates. No, Gene Hunt is the kind of man who shags you up against a wall in the alley behind a club, with nothing but a few grunts to express his feelings.

Gene Hunt isn’t the kind of man you fall in love with, Sam thinks, he’s not the type to romance you sweetly with flowers and chocolates. No, Gene Hunt is the kind of man who shags you up against a wall in the alley behind a club, with nothing but a few grunts to express his feelings.

So that makes it all the more surprising when Hunt kisses him with an unexpected gentleness. The whole thing is unexpected of course; it’s not every day that Sam walks into the DCI’s office just to be thrown against the wall as soon as the door is shut.

But Hunt kisses him so carefully, so gently that Sam can hardly equate this with the man he’s come to know since he fell into this rabbit’s hole.

Where Sam would have expected Hunt to force his tongue into his mouth instead he probes cautiously, as if expecting Sam to resist. His tongue slides smoothly inside Sam’s mouth and Sam is too shocked to do anything but let him do it.

Hunt tastes of cigarettes and whiskey and with a note of disapproval he can’t help Sam realises that Hunt has been drinking at work. Again. But that’s not one of the things that surprises him.

Hunt’s hands surprise him. Sam would have imagined (if he ever imagined his senior officer forcing himself upon him) that Hunt would grab at him, bruise him with the force of his actions. But Hunt cradles his head gently, hands sliding over his short hair and gripping his neck. And if there’s a hint of contained force in his actions it’s only because there is a sense of need about this whole situation.

Sam knows he’s trying to rationalise what’s happening by analysing every inch of it. But a part of him knows that what surprises him most is how much he enjoys the feeling of Hunt pressing against him, Hunt’s mouth over his and a kiss that is growing more insistent by the moment.

Hunt kisses like a man who’s afraid the person he’s kissing is going to pull away at any moment. Sam finally finds his reason and kisses him back. Hunt growls softly, low, in his throat and Sam feels his legs weaken slightly. He wonders if this is his subconscious mind telling him that he’s so secretly gay he’s never even noticed himself.

When Sam raises a hand to entangle in the bigger man’s hair Hunt pulls back sharply and Sam sags against the wall, gasping for breath. Hunt stands there for a moment, hands braced against the cheap wood on either side of Sam’s head, and stares at Sam with an expression Sam has come to recognise. It’s the one where he’s trying to gauge to reaction of his subject.

Hunt sniffs and licks his lips thoughtfully then laughs and it’s a short barking sound.

“I always knew you were a fairy,” Hunt says, backing away slightly with a sneer on his face.

Sam looks at him in dumbfounded shock, his mouth still slightly open and moist with the taste of Hunt.

“Get out,” Hunt says, “You’re done for the day”

Sam pushes off the wall and for a moment he wants to be the one who shouts and asks questions later. But then he catches the look in Hunt’s eye as he turns away and changes his mind. It’s half annoyance and half confusion and Sam’s never seen him look like that before. He opens the door and leaves the DCI behind him. He thinks that no matter how long he’s trapped in this place he’ll never manage to figure Gene Hunt out.

Gene Hunt is not the kind of man you fall in love with, Sam thinks, but he beings to wonder if anyone has ever tried.

Dude! That was so good, the writing of the kiss was just good to the point that you could actually feel it (well, to an extent). Also, Sam's not the only one who came out of this fic a bit baffled, the Gene Genie is a complex guy!

Oh there's far more to Gene than throwing people around. Not that I'm against that idea.

*tackled by plot bunny*

Glad you liked it!

Gene throwing people around should be a professional sport, and possibly a topic for fic. Clearly.

*releases plotbunnies*
Feb. 6th, 2006 10:44 am (UTC)
Oh. Oh. This is pretty. I love the idea of Gene being tentative and afraid. Like maybe he's fancied boys before but this is the first time it's meant enough for him to care, or it means enough for him to try.

I love the sentiment at the end, wondering if anyone's ever tried to love him.

Very nice, very very *g*

I think that Sam's brought a lot of stuff up for Gene and now he's more confused than he's ever been in his life. So yeah, the DCI's having some issues.

I'm pretty sure that even his wife doesn't love him. I agree with Sam's sentiment that Gene's not the kind of person you fall in love with. He might have been a long time ago but the whole coppering thing has turned him into a hard bastard.

I think Sam could to love him. I bet Gene could change. He could change, right? lol It wouldn't be a fluffy happy love, it'd be brutal and needy and a little desperate but it would be passionate for sure *G*

I think, when he was younger, before the force got to him, he was probably a lot like Sam, but not so much now lol
Feb. 6th, 2006 10:59 am (UTC)
Awww! This is .. so good!! ♥ And I'd love to know how it continues *hints* ;)
Feb. 7th, 2006 01:30 am (UTC)
There might be a few plot bunnies bounding about.

And Gene won't stop talking to me so I can see this taking over my life. Not now Gene!


I'm reliably informed that tonight's episode would be a good starting point. The guv is particularly interested in the kitchen of the pub and the scene where Sam throws him against a wall.

It's good, very believable and very much in character especially for Gene, but...

note of disapproval he can’t help Sam realises that Hunt drinks at work

You mean Sam didn't know yet? After Gene pulled that bottle out of the file cabinet in the first episode, too... Of course Sam probably disapproves, but it shouldn't be a surprise.

The one that threw me in this regard was in last week's episode, when Sam and Gene are outside, by the car, *sharing* a bottle of whiskey. And Sam didn't say anything about it when they got in the car to arrest Warren. Somehow, I don't think Sam's as strict on the alcohol (or smoking) subjects as he is on police procedure.

Thanks for catching that!

S'my own fault for not procuring the services of a beta reader I guess. And my policy of not re-reading things more than a once through for spelling after I write them until I have some distance.

I think I can correct it without changing the line of story though. Just needs a couple of extra words really.

Glad you liked it besides.

Omg! Absolutely fab *sighs at the sexual tension* ^_^
Feb. 7th, 2006 01:30 am (UTC)

The UST is killing me also.

*hugs for the guys*
Feb. 6th, 2006 06:08 pm (UTC)
ooh, I like that one. Sam/Gene kissing is much harder to imagine than Sam/Gene other assorted naughtiness, I find, and this makes it really evocative and believable.

Love the image of Gene with hands either side of Sam's head as well. Yum :D
Feb. 7th, 2006 01:32 am (UTC)
I love the image of Gene in general. :)

Yeah - it's a similar thing, I think, to a problem I have with a lot of slash pairings - that the characters are so straight you can't imagine them doing anything other than accidentally rutting up against one another.

This is the only way I can imagine it starting for Gene and Sam. For no apparent reason.
Feb. 9th, 2006 08:44 pm (UTC)
oh yeah, power play turned topsy turvy... niiice. Lovely ficlet.
Feb. 12th, 2006 09:54 pm (UTC)
Thank you muchly. I'm quite proud of it.
Feb. 10th, 2006 12:22 am (UTC)
Oh, yes indeed. Gene trying to figure Sam out, in his own bloody weird way that makes complete fucking sense to him and of course wouldn't impinge on *his* masculinity...
Feb. 12th, 2006 09:56 pm (UTC)
Of course not - because Gene is clearly not attracted to his new DI in anyway at all.

That's why he gets inappropriately close to him all the time.

I love that man.
Feb. 17th, 2006 04:21 pm (UTC)
Oh, I love it! I adore in-denial-it's-just-a-test Gene, and the last line is wonderful :-)
Apr. 18th, 2006 07:55 pm (UTC)
This is fabulous - love the sting in the tail from Gene and Sam's response. Am now off to read all your LoM fic.
Feb. 16th, 2007 01:22 am (UTC)
Hello! This comment is only about, ooh, a year late - asked strangeumbrella for recs and wound up here, thought it was only polite to tell you that I loved this. Short but sweet, not to mention hot and interesting and generally good. Very much love. :D
Feb. 17th, 2007 01:36 am (UTC)
Hello to you too!

Don't worry about lateness - it's never too late for feedback. Especially if it's positive.

I have a lot of LoM fic, if you care to click the tag. It's the fandom I've written the most in.
Oct. 9th, 2007 02:28 pm (UTC)
That's such a Gene reaction. Got the guts to take action but then falters and hides behind the tough-guy persona. *sigh*

Will he ever learn, poor thing?

Tripping back through the lifein1973 archives and found this little gem. Very in character and hot and satisfying in the frustration of the ending (if that makes sense).

(And Mr Hobbs led me to Philip Glenister too. ;-)

having to re-write my comment because LJ threw a wobbly and lost the first attempt... like the poster before me, I've been trawling the lifein1973 archives too, and came across this delicious fic. I read the sequel (? 'A Week is All It Takes'??) first, and love the whole thing...yum yum.

This is awesome. Definitely adding it to my memories. <3 I really like how gentle Gene is and how surprised Sam is by that. And then the plotty/depth-y bit at the end with Gene still being difficult just dlsajd;l;j. Yeah, I like it a lot. <3
