This particular piece is un-beta-ed, so you've been warned! But I wrote it for a challenge entitled 'THE UNLOVED FANDOMS/UNLOVED PAIRINGS CHALLENGE'. Obviously the Riddick universe is GROSSLY under-represented... but the Riddick/Eve pairing is basically non-existent with the exception of my own writing... hence why I HAD to partake in this challenge. :-)Sooo...Title: Perfect MatchAuthor: indigochild76Rating: RPairing: Riddick/EveCharacters: Riddick, Eve Logan, Toombs; mention of KyraWord Count: 1112A/N: Spoilers for EfBB, PB, DF and TCoR; written within the universe I created for my own Riddick fanfic entitled 'TCoR: Voyage To Underverse' (therefore somewhat spoilerish as it takes place AFTER my fic); written for the Unloved Fandoms/Unloved Pairings ChallengeShe was pinned against the wall, her stomach flat against the cold hard stone. Logan frantically looked around trying to find something, anything that could help her gain an advantage over the man trying to take her down. This wasn’t the first time she’d been in this position and more than likely it wouldn’t be her last. It couldn’t be her last.The merc girl could feel the man’s hot breath caress her ear and almost instantly it sent an electric jolt coursing throughout her entire body. She could hear him breathing deeply, taking in her scent and relishing every moment while doing so.“You think I’ll go down that easy, Riddick?” she said, her breath ragged.“Hard to say just yet.” Riddick paused. “I’ll let you know once I beat you.”At that, Logan found the adrenaline surge she’d been looking for. She forced the silver-eyed man off her back for a split second, and that was all she needed. Immediately, she turned herself around and found herself eye to eye with the Furyan.“You’re much better than last time. Nice to know that you’ve improve with time.”Logan sneered.“Sexy,” Riddick muttered under his breath, just loud enough for Logan to hear him.“Sweet talkin’ won’t get you anywhere.”“Maybe, maybe not.”Logan, shiv in hand, lunged at the Furyan, but he was quick and easily caught her wrist.“The problem is, Eve, that you get distracted too easily. Haven’t you learned that you can’t let your opponent get the advantage with fuckin’ talk? That’s all it is. Talk. Shut it out.”The merc girl bit her lip and noticed that the man loosened his grip on her wrist. She seized the opportunity and wrenched it free and then moved back a bit, keeping a small distance between herself and the Furyan.“Now that’s the Eve I know.” Riddick smiled.Logan heaved an exasperated sigh. She was more than annoyed. “You’re going down, asshole.”Riddick laughed. “Resorting to threats now? I like that. It’s an interesting approach though.” He paused and a thoughtful expression crossed his face. “Have you been talking with Toombs?”The merc girl instantly sheathed her shiv and jumped up into the air. As she approached Riddick, she extended her leg, ready to kick, and her foot made perfect contact with his stomach. The Furyan grunted as he fell backwards. Logan, meanwhile, landed solidly on her feet, crouched and ready for the fight.Riddick rolled over and got up. Just as he was about to counter attack the woman, she threw an unexpected punch. Almost immediately Riddick tasted his own blood.“Now that’s more like it. I love your style, Eve. It suits you.”The Furyan wasn’t about to be taken off guard again by this merc. He knew he was better than her. Then, he’d spent a majority of his life running from the likes of people like her. He knew the way they thought and what they were capable of. There was also the fact that he’d spent a lot of time in various slams across the galaxy. He knew the ins and outs of even the most heavily guarded triple max slams. He’d been able to perfect his skills – he had to. But, despite everything, he was glad to see the woman trying so hard. The determination she exhibited gave him a small sense of comfort that he couldn’t even begin to explain.Riddick eyed Logan and for a moment he thought he was looking at Kyra. He blinked hard and Kyra was instantly gone.Suddenly, Riddick and Logan moved towards each other. Each was holding fast to their shiv. Once they collided, they exchanged punches that the other was able to block and after several minutes, they came to a sudden stand still. Riddick had managed to get his shiv blade against Logan’s neck, ready to cut for the kill.Logan stood there panting. Her face showed anger, but there was an underlying look of dejection for having been beaten. Riddick just dropped his hand away from her throat and grasped her waist, pulling her close. He breathed in her scent. “Beautiful,” he whispered in her ear.The merc girl just closed her eyes, trying to forget about how Riddick had beaten her again during yet another one of their many sparring matches. It was hard for her to stay angry at the Furyan though. She knew she’d gained his respect as a fighter, even if he was leagues ahead of her in that regard, and she knew that he loved her with every ounce of his soul. Things between them had been intense and on fire ever since that fateful voyage to Underverse. Now they were heading to Furya, as to what lay ahead? She couldn’t even begin to speculate. All she did know, however, was that she’d be by Riddick’s side until she died.Riddick growled and reached up to touch Logan’s face and then her hair. He held her tightly against his warm body and leaned down to kiss her on the mouth. His kiss was hungry, full of want and desire. The merc girl liked that and just let the man take his fill and swallow her whole. She trusted the Furyan with every fiber of her being and knew that she had his trust in return. That alone was enough to make her head spin as Riddick did not trust easily.The Furyan’s hands wandered all over Logan’s body, taking in the feel and sensation of each and every one of her curves. She let out a tiny gasp when he suddenly touched a sensitive spot on her neck. Riddick could only smile at her reactions to his touch. He liked the fact that only he had permission to do so. Besides, if anyone else laid a finger on her, they’d be ghosted before they blinked twice.Riddick leaned his forehead against Logan’s and she was still wrapped tightly in his arms. The man locked eyes with merc girl, his gaze intense and full of passion.The Furyan was about to speak, but suddenly found himself interrupted.“Not again. You two really need to get a room,” Toombs spoke and then chuckled. “Hey, what d’ya know? You two do have a room. Why don’t you go use it?” The merc’s words were filled with both amusement and sarcasm.Logan blushed.“Jealous, Toombs?” Riddick asked while smiling.“Fuck no! Not that I’d mind the company of a female, if you know what I mean.”“I get you,” Riddick said. He then looked over at Logan. “I think Toombs is right though. We should really go back to our room.”~+~+~Challenge Links -- Master List Of Pairings, Challenge Launch
I do like it....but I have a preference for the Unresolved Sexual Tension....if ya know what I mean. :-P Keep writing though...and I'll keep reading...cuz I do like the way you write and I do like this pairing. I'm working on my own fanfic for Serenity/Firefly...but I may delve into this particular fanfiction area as well. That way you won't be the lone person in the wind saying "dude, they're hot together." :-D
See, this is a one-shot that takes place AFTER the fic I'm currently writing. Hence, the slight spoilers warning. And I wrote it for a specific challenge. So, I had to semi-sorta wrap things up in the bit (and to be honest, if the challenge hadn't presented itself I probably woudn't have written this right away or at all even... but it also sort of shows you that I have a sequel for my fic in mind and who knows WHAT craziness I have in store there *winks* but let me just say that a pattern has been established with the Riddick movies and more likely than not, I'll keep to that pattern *winks again*).But I know what you mean about UST in general! ;-) I'm a BIG fan of that myself. YAY for the angst!!! And once you start posting your own Riddick/Eve fic you'll have to let me know as I'd love to give it a read. YAY!!! Someone else adores my OTP!!! AWESOME!At any rate, despite the lack of UST, I'm glad you liked it... both the pairing and my writing style. It's wonderful to know that people out there enjoy what I write and share. :-)Thanks, sweetie!
No problem...I think feeback is important so that you (or anyone else) knows that they have an appreciative audience. I wait in breathless anticipation for the rest of your chapters on your current fic. I just really like the way you've captured the angst, UST, etc in it. And as much as I love UST, it's good to know that it will be going somewhere...cuz UST is frustrating if there's NO chance of it ever being resolved. But if there's the chance, then the frustration is a good thing. :-D I'm gonna go see if there's anything interesting to read that you've posted and I will let you know when I write something of my own...I could use all the feedback (be it positive or negative) that I can get.
I know what you mean about getting some sort of closure with angsty UST! ;-)And please point the way once you've written something as I'd love to read what you put out there for this favorite 'verse of mine. BTW, what sort of story do you have in mind??? *is curious*
No worries...I will be happy to ask for your feedback when I do write one. I just finished a Mal/River story that I'm going to post up on livejournal after my own cute little beta reader makes sure all is well with it. And as for the Eve/Riddick thing...I thought I'd start out slow and write what I thought should have happened in that deleted scene from the DVD (aka, the crew doesn't wake up and Eve has more follow through on her "exploration" of riddick)....or something along those lines... :-D
