Touch Sensitive by JoJo  
Title:  Touch Sensitive
Author: JoJo (solosundance )
Artist: przed 
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle, Cowley, Jax, Phillips, Betty
Word count: 14, 798

Summary: Left a physical and psychological mess after a brutal torture ordeal, Bodie can’t cope with very much except tea.  Doyle’s living in, wondering if their fledgling sexual relationship is over, and burning with the need for vengeance.  He’d be the perfect cure, only Bodie can’t bear to be touched...

Notes:  This is a sequel to my story Today's Lesson.  The sadly-absent myrebelcat  wondered at the time what the aftermath of that nightmarish little mess might have been, and what healing may or may not have taken place.  Many thanks to her for having asked, to przed  for her fabulous trailer vid using a real favourite song of mine, to the truly outstanding co-mods of this first Pros Big Bang and to byslantedlight  and foreverfoxcat  for their eagle-eyed and cowboy-expunging beta services (remaining glitches are mine all mine).

There you are - in all your glory!!! Cannot wait for the time to get me chops around this one. Looks and sounds fantastic, mate.

well, I hesitate to use the word "enjoy" for this little tale of woe but ... *g* It's been a wonderful month and you and P. are pretty damn amazing *smooch*

I always did wonder what would happen next after Today's Lesson; I'm glad there is a sequel.

I'm downloading it now to my E-reader, and am so looking forward to reading this.

It's so cool to know people are reading Pros fics on their e-readers :) I hope you enjoy it!

I know your "Today's Lesson" and it is heartbreaking. I am more than a little bit nervous your BigBang story might continue it. You do know the combination of "heartbreaking" and "being a good writer" is ... *looks very worried*
solosundance on September 29th, 2010 07:48 pm (UTC)
Be brave *g* Bodie is :)

Oh God that's brilliant. Oh I hope they get cricket on the green and a Morris Minor! I loved the first story, always wanted to know what happened next, and this is - well - I dunno. It's just.... brilliant. I love it. Thank you so much.

Thank you, I'm glad you liked it :) I hope they get the cricket and Morris Minor too ...

Oh, fantastic! I remember reading Today's Lesson and being so impressed by your writing style, and this is just as perfect. Both characters are absolutely right, and there was nothing...gratuitous about any of it. er. If that makes sense.
solosundance on October 2nd, 2010 04:45 pm (UTC)
Thanks :) I'm pleased it didn't come over as gratuitous - it's always a worry when you're trying to write about something so traumatic. Poor Bodie's has a pretty rough Big Bang from what I've seen ... poor lad.

It's not an easy read, dark and painful, subtle and soothing at the same time, and so brilliant! :-)
solosundance on October 2nd, 2010 04:47 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you thought there was some soothing as well as all the nasty stuff :)

W...W...W...Wah!!!!! What a story. Poor Bodie. And poor loyal love-sick Doyle. But what do you do when the one you loved is hurt so bad? You help them, you stick together, and you move on. Sob. Thank you for the story.
solosundance on October 2nd, 2010 04:48 pm (UTC)
Poor Bodie indeed :-( I always feel bad doing these awful things to them ... but then I go and do it again. Thanks for reading!

That was a painful read but you still managed to put the hope in there. I know things will work out! Bodie is so damamged, yet Doyle is right by his side, even when Bodie doesn't want him. Time does seem to have helped and their reunion was touching. They're both strong so I have faith that they'll make it. Well done!
solosundance on October 2nd, 2010 04:50 pm (UTC)
I'm sure things will work out, even if not totally perfectly. Thanks for your generous rec, K, and for being an amazing contributor and supporter of the BB.

Thanks to JoJo and PRZed for the Big Bang finale!
solosundance on October 2nd, 2010 04:51 pm (UTC)
It was such fun, I'm sorry it's over :)

I'm thinking this is one of my favorites out of a group of really tremendous stories written for Big Bang. The mixed emotions of both Bodie and Ray come out so clearly and the scene in the interrogation room is really well done. And, of course, the Robeau kitties were very fond of the Tompkins.
solosundance on October 2nd, 2010 04:52 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad the kitties liked Tompkins. I'm rather fond of him myself :)

Oh.my.... that was really a hard and painful reading.
But it was worth it!
You really managed to write such a vivid picture and I actually wasn't sure, how it would end :big sigh:

Thanks a lot for this brilliant story, it really is outstanding and unique!

I really hope, there's maybe a sequel of the new beginning ....

Again, thanks a lot for writing this one! :)

solosundance on October 2nd, 2010 04:54 pm (UTC)
Thanks for reading! I'm glad you thought it was worth it despite the hard subject-matter. I did my best for a hopeful ending for them :)

Always on kettle duty, taking the role of scary Matron when there were pharmaceuticals in the offing, radiating nervous, yearning warmth across the chasm in the bed.

Not only did George Cowley have eyes in his backside, he probably had ears in his eyes as well.

Bodie had felt himself climaxing all over Doyle's fist and the pillows as if brought to a perfectly-timed crescendo by a brilliant, insane conductor

My three favourite lines in the whole thing. I couldn't resist pulling them out and giving them back to you..*g* Just MARVELLOUS, mate. Full of heartbreak and square-jawed determination - and these flashes of wit in your word choices that just have me humming with pleasure and envy.

How I love the lads in your hands.

Aww thanks, mate. I must admit I loved the whole BB writing experience - even though I didn't manage as big a bang as most *g* It was a pleasure to spend time with the lads - which I knew anyway of course but it's always nice to have all their gorgeous snarky Brit goodness wash over you again :)

Today's Lesson was one of the stories that really pulled me into the fandom at the start of this year, and this was an amazing follow-up. Thank you for sharing.
solosundance on October 7th, 2010 12:20 pm (UTC)
Thanks, I'm glad you liked it, and Today's Lesson!

Utterly heart-wrenching, but with a thread of hope at the end.
Beautifully done.
solosundance on October 7th, 2010 12:22 pm (UTC)
Oh yes, they needed some hope despite the problems. Thanks for reading :)
moth2fic: pros_doylewolfmoth2fic on October 7th, 2010 05:48 pm (UTC)
Well, I read the master post and felt I had to read the prequel first and then couldn't stop and basically spent the entire afternoon carried away in your story. Wow! What a roller coaster of emotions. Beautifully written too; every word perfectly chosen and placed. I love the hints and references to other writing like Larton, the detailed exploration of psychological damage, and the courage to show us a couple hurt almost beyond repair by their job, but with hope at the end. Thank you!
solosundance on October 8th, 2010 08:13 pm (UTC)
Thank you, what a lovely comment! I really wanted their solidarity to shine through at the end. And the more I think about it, the more I think Doyle is a total damn hero :D The BB was a great experience, wasn't it?
