First Sip (Cold Comfort Farm: Flora/Charles, R; experience, non-fiction)

Hi, everybody!

Okay, here's my second contribution to the ongoing Porn Battle, written in twenty minutes. Once again, I'm trying a new fandom - the primary attraction of the Porn Battles, to me; this time, it's Cold Comfort Farm, one of the very few movies that I think is the equal of the book it's based on. Anyway, here it is.

Diamond Life (James Bond films: James Bond/unspecified women, NC-17)

Hi, everybody!

So here is a deeply unpleasant little story that should only be read after this introduction. When I got my [profile] picfor1000 assignment, I immediately thought of James Bond - there was just something about the image that brought the character to my mind. Now, to be clear, I've seen maybe three Bond films in my life, none of which I remember all that clearly, and have never read any of the books. So the story is more about my impression of what James Bond, the character (particularly as played by Daniel Craig), must be like at this point in his life and career than it is about proper canon. The Bond I've drawn here is a miserable mess: misogynistic, despairing, exhausted, and restless. The story accordingly features strong and demeaning language, violence (sexualized and not), and thoughts that at least verge on the suicidal. Please skip this story if any of those things will upset you. I'm rating it NC-17, though the only sex in the story occurs in memories and dreams. Unbetaed, as I didn't really want to inflict this on a friend. (Title from Sade's "Smooth Operator," which I heard for the first time in years a few days ago.)
