Vice - by ILWB - Artwork by gblvr  
Title: Vice
Author: inlovewithboth
Artist: gblvr
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: Slash
Characters/Pairing: Bodie/Doyle
Word count: 22,375
Warnings: Rape

Summary: "Part of life, it seems, is starting over again and again, each time a little smarter than the last." Brent Corrigan.

Notes: A vidder for two stories last year I was so impressed by The Pros Big Bang that I decided to both write and vid in 2011, despite me being a short story writer by preference. So was born my first ever story over 20,000 words which I lovingly dedicate to those who helped and encouraged me. Sabs, Jaicen, Andy, Judes, Rave, Sara and Aldene all gave me their time, support, advice and patience – thank you from the bottom of my heart, guys. And for those of you who have been trying to teach me the dark art of POV – I apologise. I tried, I promise I did. Finally thank you to our amazing Mods and my Artist gblvr. *inserts ‘we are not worthy’ icon here*

In this story I did something I swore I’d never do – I created family. And that leads me to the inspiration for the story; the troubled, much misunderstood and truly divine Brent Corrigan, who I believe is gorgeous both inside and out.

This is where I relax and put my feet up, isn't it? So why am I pacing the floor and biting my nails?!

It was easier than I thought it was going to be, thanks to those wonderful codes!

Nicely done! I love stories that delve into possible pasts for the lads. We learn a lot about Bodie's and even get a little hint of Ray's. The characters were well drawn and very believable. Terrific story!

The artwork is beautiful and fits so well. A wonderful job by both of you! (and please feel welcome to join those of us who are sitting back and enjoying being finished. It does feel good, doesn't it! *g*)

It's a pity about the POV problem because it does rather stand out. Never mind, there's always hope for next time. Congratulations on finishing your story.

I know *bangs head on desk* I tried writing and re-writing and got myself in such a pickle. Next time I'll be clearer from the beginning, rather than just writing from the heart and then trying to change it.

****Slight Spoiler****

Just finished a marathon effort before I have to head off to work! Great plot with so much of your personality in it. I loved the motorbike scene with Doyle following, such a great security innovation and I can just see Doyle expertly weaving his way through traffic keeping Bodie and his brother safe and becoming sodden in the process. Had a chuckle at the suspension on the Capri and the women waiting for autographs...I wonder where those observations came from? *g*

Clever dilemma for Bodie, Doyle or his brother??? He would have to had a hard time with that. I enjoyed the action and the h/c. Both in slings at the end!

Kick back now matey and relax, you've earned it.
inlovewithboth on October 8th, 2011 10:06 am (UTC)
Did you spot yourself in the crowd at the stage door?! LOL!! That scene is just a couple of lines long, I wondered if anyone would even spot it. Just goes to show, eh?!!

OK, it's finally up, you can stop the stressing. Well done on such a long story, I know that you prefer to write shorter ones and writing a long one can take an awful lot of patience and time. There is such a lot of you in this story, little things that those in the know will pick up and smile at. have a whole box of choccies mate, you deserve it

*blushing and checking out the second layer* thanks mate, you've been such a help on this. You need a gold star for patience.

I've read the first few lines, and I really like your style. So it's already on my iPad waiting for me. :-)
Very nice artwork, too. I love the colors and the font!

There's so much I love about VICE it's hard to sum it up in a few little lines :o)
The shower scene, the truly special London locations, the intriguing insight into Bodie's past and his family history. I loved getting to know Bodie as a big brother and his interaction and relationship with Michael. And I loved how he needed Doyle at his side to help him cope with that new role and situation.
To me VICE is the perfect mixture of action, H/C and personal growth, and it's a truly special and amazing tribute to our Brent.
And hats off to you for writing SUCH a bloody long story!!! I could never ever do it and am deeply in awe of you now ;o)
inlovewithboth on October 10th, 2011 04:03 pm (UTC)
Wow, thanks so much for an amazing review. *sniffs and wipes nose on sleeve*

I'm so happy you got your story posted! Yay! I shall read it now that I'm back home and able to find my brain once again. LOL! I've looked at the nice art gblvr did for your story.

(If you ever need POV help, I'm ready to help. I can't write a decent sentence without beating it to a pulp, but I can keep your POV in focus. *bg*)
inlovewithboth on October 11th, 2011 07:03 am (UTC)
Thanks ever so much! I don't think I need POV help though, more like POV intensive therapy!

Congrats on your first long story *g* I happen to really like fic where people invent family and backstory for Pros and I liked your OC Michael and the very (sadly) believable story you had for him and Bodie, growing up with all that prejudice and all the problems it went on to cause. I like that you used Bodie and Doyle's relationship as a positive thing in juxtaposition to the seedier, if not downright horrible side of the world of sex; you clearly wanted to make some points about the sex industry and I think that's an excellent thing. And as a stand-out, the lovely shower scene with Bodie warming Doyle up - really enjoyed that *g*

Art is gorgeous, matches the mood so well and the fanmix has introduced me to a lot of new songs and artists - a great idea for part of the artwork! *g*
inlovewithboth on October 11th, 2011 05:58 pm (UTC)
Wow, what an amazing review! Thank you so much. I'd always thought I'd seen my fair share of life but I was frankly shocked when I heard Brent Corrigan's story. Somehow I just had to weave a plot around him and wanted to give him the support he's never had in his real life.
And I'm glad you liked the shower scene *g*

Due to RL insanity I'm really lagging behind on the BB stories already *headdesk* but you've been Kindleized (I hope it didn't hurt too much) and I do look forward to catching up.

Thanks. :D

I love being Kindleized!! *g*
