cougar, mute, flame-eyed, oj

Let Me Show You, Baby, I'm a Talented Boy (The Losers: Cougar/Jensen, R)

Hi, everybody!

So I come bearing fic for a movie I watched in the theater many, many moons ago (stop laughing, tenaciousmetoo) mostly because JDM was in it - The Losers. [If you haven't seen it, what are you waiting for? Óscar Jaenada (Cougar), Chris Evans (Jake Jensen), Zoe Saldana (Aisha), Idris Elba (Roque), Columbus Short (Pooch), and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Clay) are the main cast.] And it's taken me some time to catch up to the indisputable fact of Óscar Jaenada. Would you like some visual aids? Here's a look at what Jensen is seeing throughout this fic.

Here he is with a crown of curls:  photo novabface1_zps8izxhnuq.png

This one is an inside joke with myself (shut up) - the reason Cougar reads Rebecca in the fic is because the moment I saw this picture, I cast OJ as Maxim de Winter:

And this is the conquistador image. Mercy.

And a bonus one of that sweet-faced boy from the yearbook, all grown up:

Anyway, back to the fic. My thanks to [personal profile] musesfool for the beta and encouragement, and to Prince for providing the soundtrack and title (these two have reminded me how great Prince is for sexytimes soundtracks). The story is set pre-movie, and I did use Google Translate myself despite mocking it in the fic, as I don't speak Spanish. It ended up being about 10K of yearning, though I originally figured it would be about 2K of sex, and I didn't even get to use the joke that kick-started the whole thing in my head, so possibly there will be a sequel.

As always, I'd love to hear what you think.
