ozmissage: (Lost. Miles/Richard. OTP.)

Title: arms outstretched trying to take flight
Pairing: Miles/Richard
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Not my guys.
Summary: After.
A/N: Written for the final [livejournal.com profile] lost_in_108 challenge, #101 “Flight.” It had to be these boys. It only made sense.

They bum around America like a pair of vagabonds, after. Miles drives, but Richard navigates, worn map spread across his knees.

The freedom of it makes him dizzy, sometimes.

They stop in Memphis, Dallas; they stop in Miami to deliver a message, an I’m sorry, six years and a lifetime too late.

They see everything and nothing, and Richard loves every minute of it.

They stop in LA and Miles kisses him fearlessly, carelessly in a smoky bar. Richard kisses him back without hesitation.

“Promise me we’ll never stop,” Richard murmurs in Miles’s ear.

“Got to come up for air sometime,” Miles jokes.

Richard smiles softly.

“Not us.”

Alkjaldjfjk, OH MY GOD, this makes me insanely happy. How you manage to give me so many feelings in just 108 words is ridiculous. That whole ending -- "promise me we'll never stop" -- YES OMG. EVERYTHING. This is all I want for these boys and it's perfect. *draws hearts*

Also: they stop in Miami to deliver a message, an I’m sorry, six years and a lifetime too late

Aww, thank you! I miss these boys! I didn't realize how much until I started writing this. I think a longer fic is going to be in order soon-ish. :D

(Your icon! GORGEOUSNESS.)

Ahhh, PERFECTION. I love the image of these two boys road tripping, it's my happy place. I like all the little snapshots of the places they visit, Miami makes me sad. :((

And the kiss at the end! LOVE IT. AHH THESE TWO. <3333

Thank you! <3 My personal canon dictates that they must always be road tripping post-finale. It's like a rule. ;)

Agreed! Man, I miss these two! I wish I had time to write fic. :(( But I do believe I have a finished sideways!fic for them that I never posted, hmm. I'll have to get on that, it needs to see the light of day. ;D

So lovely, the writing and the atmosphere! You couldn't have ended with a better (108) drabble; it just fits. :)

(And wow, are there some nice-looking icons in this post!)

Thank you, dear! I started to go with S/J, but Miles/Richard just felt right. <3

(And WORD on the icons, I'm still eyeing Joy's. I might have to steal it. ;))

This drabble!

It makes me so incredibly happy and so achingly sad at the same time. This line, especially: The freedom of it makes him dizzy, sometimes.

Aaaaaaaaagh, my heart. I adore this. Thanks for the reminder of how awesome Lost fic is/was.
