Title: Not Quite Like Solitude
Fandom: Dexter
Prompt: #26, Obsession
Rating: PG13
Warnings: None besides the fandom.
Summary: It doesn't feel like being hunted. At least, he doesn't think it does.
Spoilers: Spoilers for S1, takes place after it.


The first time Dexter slows down his car and invites him for a beer, Doakes swears at him and walks away. An hour later he's back outside Dexter's house, watching.

The second time he accepts. They speak perhaps ten words, all in all, during the hour he spends there. Dexter knows normal people don't enjoy sitting in silence next to somebody so tense with the need to kill them that blinking feels like a taunt. He should say something for appearances' sake.

He relaxes and smiles, and Doakes swears again before pretending to do the same, one hand on his bottle, the other one close to his gun.

Dexter wonders if he could have had more of this with Rudy, if he will have to kill Doakes, if this is what having a friend feels like.

It's a thought worth another beer.

.finis.

I love how you tear into such a tiny moment and explode it into something so perfect and wholly right.

Their interactions kill me and this is just gorgeous.

I can't wait for Season 2 and definitely can't wait for more Dexter pieces from you.

Whee visiting flist right before bedtime. (It shows far, far too much that I can easily consider Dexter fic being a good night story)

Hee, oh Dex. *hearts him so*

I really, really, really can't wait for season two and all the Dexter-Doakes (Dexter/Doakes? Debra/Doakes? Dexter/Debra omg STOP!) stuff.

I can't write Dexter/Debtra (my inner Debra would literally shoot me), but I wouldn't be surprised if there were lots of Morgancest out there...

You know, I actually have no desire to read Morgancest, which is kinda weird. Well, maybe not, considering Deb has girly bits. I prefer my 'cest between brothers. ;)

I think I should worry that I don't identify with anybody in Torchwood due to them being all creepy and of questionable work ethics, yet I can write Dexter-POV fic without feeling bad about that.

Dexter socializing sometimes disturbs me more than Dexter killing somebody...
