Brothers In Arms

Dexter has never had anyone look at him quite the way Miguel does; has never had someone know what he is, what he does, and accept it. Encourage it. Respect him for it.

Oh, he's under no illusions about what it is Miguel thinks he knows, what he believes they have in common, though he's actually pretty close on that score. He isn't sure he’ll ever be ready to let Miguel - anyone - see all of what he is, what he can be.

He's unwilling to introduce his dark passenger to someone new, for obvious reasons. Harry understood; taught him the logistics of it all - the how tos and how nots, the skills, the rules, the expectations. He molded Dexter into a much better monster than he ever would have come to be alone, but, when faced with the practical application of his deadly lessons, he couldn't bear to see what he'd created.

Then there was Rudy... Biney. Brian. He'd embraced their nature, had revelled in it. He'd spent a lifetime following the gleeful directions of his own malevolent hitchhiker. He'd wanted to be family, partner, brothers-in-arms, but Harry's lessons had held fast, and Biney had fallen beneath the wheels of Dexter's freight train of a mission.

And now Miguel calls him brother, shares his beer and his boat, shares his losses and his victories. Wants to share his kills, for the greater good, of course. Wants to make the world a better, safer place.

Dexter gets aroused just considering the possibilities, and that's… never happened before. Sure, he can get it up for Rita - it's gotten to be a habit, and a useful one at that. But this…

He shuts his eyes and sees acceptance in Miguel's smile, and his dick twitches in his hand. He imagines Miguel's fingers locked tight and eager on the hilt of his knife, and he's all the way hard.

He pictures layering his hands over Miguel's own, guiding that surgical blade through the multiple layers of Saran Wrap and tape, down into the meat of their chosen victim. The heart, maybe, or… no, the stomach. A deep blow, but not immediately fatal; they don't want the fun to end too soon.

He sees the blood pool and spread as they work together, carving out a new life from the ruins of the old.

He comes, shuddering, cursing his imagination.

Does he want this?

Really?

That's amazing. It really works. I never would have thought it.

Lovely piece. And kinda hot.

Thank you! It really is!

I loved the Dexter/Rudy in S1, but Dexter just didn't start whispering in my ear about him the way he did about Miguel as soon as I finishing watching the most recent eps (about 3 hours ago). :D

Cool..my first piece of Dexter fanfic I've ever read. :D

This line so sums up my outlook towards Miguel at the moment..especially if the line is taking in the context of being sarcastic Wants to share his kills, for the greater good, of course.

You did a great job of describing exactly what's going on Dex's head and the slash fantasy was just an extra bonus! Thanx for sharing.

P.S. And it's only because you asked ( cuz I can't write for crap and make mistakes all the time so I don't point out boo-boos but I spotted a teeny tiny widdle typo.

the how tos ands how nots see the "s" in the word "and"?

Peace

Thank you!

Dexter's head is a very odd place to spend time in, but the show does such a wonderful job of giving us a window on his psyche, it's impossible to resist when he styarts whispering. *g*

And thank you for pointing out the typo. No matter how many times I check my work over, there's always one that sneaks by me. Always. *g*

You're welcome! And for the latter comment.. oh man, I know just what you mean. It seems like after the 10th time of reading over a story the words just blend together so I always miss something too. Thankfully I'm not expecting the Pulitzer anytime soon *winks*

Peace =)

That was absolutely fucked up and twisted.

And I loved it.

I probably shouldn't have found it as hot as I did.

I may yet have to write Nikolai/Kirill to get them out of my head. *g*

I've only ever seen the painfully sanitized season 1 shown on CBS during the strike, but know enough about the show to understand what I was missing. And I've never seen any of the other seasons.

That said, I love this! It's wonderfully dark and twisted. Poor Dexter, so unsure, so needy, so confused about it all.

Nicey done!

Oh, it's an amazing show. The thought of it being sanitized fills me with woe.

Thank you! :D

Dude! I was wondering when someone would write Miguel/Dexter!

He wants it. Yup. Definitely.

Thank you!

I went straight for the fanfic comms after the eps ended and was stunned to find nobody had got there before me. *g*

I know, what is up with that! The only reason I hadn't "gone there" yet is the fact that the pairings I write always end up killing each other, and I don't want that to happen, plz.

This was extremely hot. And all the Dex/Brian icons in this thread make me happy and nostalgic.

Oooh, pretty. Or is pretty the wrong adjective to use for serial killers? I think I mean prettily sadistic.

Nevertheless, this is clever, and pretty, as I said, but I can’t comment on characterisation as I’ve only seen one or two episodes. Channel 10 here put it on too late!

Pretty works for me. And for Dexter. :D

Sweet! Someone wrote some Dexter/Miguel! Terrific story! I can't believe there isn't more Mexter fic, I saw them together almost from the second Miguel started being all buddy buddy with Dexter. I hope you consider writing more.

I had such high hopes for Dexter and Miguel, but it was not to be. I wish there was more fic too. I'm rewatching the show right now, so I may be inspired again. ;)

I haven't frequented fanfic but I knew slash writers wouldn't let me down. I knew I couldn't be the only one who noticed how EXTREMELY HOMOEROTIC Dexter and Miguel were! I was sad that he died, but it also seemed to be the only realistic conclusion.

LOL! I KNOW! I was amazed there wasn't more fic, and I was sad that he had to die (and he did have to die), because it killed the best Dexter pairing since S1's Rudy/Brian chemistry. (Even finding out he was Dexter's brother didn't manage to kill that puppy. *g*)

Thanks! :D

I like this also b/c it also seems believable, it's not all about gay sex but it shows how they get off on killing...they could get caught up in the heat of the moment, too.
