Title:For Kicks
Author:Dawnwind dawnebeth
Archive to Pros Lib: Yes
Genre: Slash
Character pairing: Bodie/Doyle, Halley/Barnes
Word Count:70222
Warnings: two kinky sex scenes

Summary: After preventing the kidnapping of a wealthy Middle-Eastern businessman's son, Bodie and Doyle are assigned to keep Karim Khorsandi safe until he signs an important oil contract. They team up with private investigators Halley and Barnes who are guarding Khorsandi's racehorse but it all goes awry. Bodie and Doyle have to unravel a complex knot of family loyalties and politics to find their suspect. They'd prefer to have stayed at home playing kinky sex games. Crossover with Racing Game

Notes: Loads of thanks for the Box of Tricks mods for hosting another fantastic Big Bang. It's my second year. I always feel supported and encouraged here. Special thanks to my beta/editors: sc_fossil who actually rented Racing Game from Netflix so she'd know the other characters when she read over the story! Wightfaerie, my Brit checker extraordinaire, and my friend Suzinsf who watches Racing Game but not Pros and edits my stories anyway. Much thanks to Cloudless for gorgeous art for the second year in a row. She recognized my homage to Dick Francis (who created Halley and Barnes of Racing Game) from the title alone.

What a treat to have one of my favourite thrillers crossed with Pros! I adore Sid and if I have a complaint it's that we didn't get quite enough of him and Chico! It was also a treat to have a novel length story based around a case with solid relationships in the background instead of personal angst and less casework. Well done for writing very much in the style of Dick Francis!! Well, apart from the sex bits...I 'm not sure he'd have approved of those!*g*

Bless you! You make me all kinds of happy--I was worried that people would think there was too much Sid and Chico. So yay!

Sid and Chico's raunchier scenes do fade to black a la Mr. Francis...so I could devote all my efforts to Bodie and Doyle's.

This has made me wonder if I could write a whole Sid and Chico story.

Yes please!! A whole Sid/Chico story!!!!! And I don't think I'm by any means the only one saying that!

Hmmm--that would be fun. I'd have to think of a horse related plot that the great master Dick Francis hasn't done yet.

My Chico icon looks interested.

If you do, and you need a Brit checker, let me know!

Despite having lived in London, I always need a Brit checker. ;-D
