Reflection series: Twelve
Title: Days
Fandom: Ripper Street
Song Artist: David Bowie
Characters/Pairings: Homer Jackson/Bennett Drake
Words: 100
Genre: Hurt/Comfort, slash, angst
Rating: PG13 (mentions of drug use)
Summary: High and hurting, Jackson seeks comfort not with the whores or his wife.
Author's Note: Twelfth part of my reflection series and funny enough, my first slash piece! I didn't realise that at first, but it is and it's for Ripper Street too! Huzzah! I do so love this show and I feel the Jackson/Drake pairing is so cool, very angsty. Not quite sure how the song inspired this, but after listening to it, this is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy.

I’m going mad.

I don’t know what to do.

I could’ve gone to my wife and taken what I needed, but my brain’s not thinking.

It’s the smoke.

You don’t think of us as friends, but we do have a lot in common.

The atrocities we’ve seen, the things we’ve done. The days we’ve experienced.  Can we not share this too? What’s one more sin?

Sergeant, I’m in pain. The whores cannot do anything for me, for they aren’t men.

Soothe me. Hold me.

Do this for me for all of my days and I’ll owe you.

Big time, Benny.

Eleven Thirteen

Eeeeeeeeeeee, Ripper street slash! Yayyyy!

Powerful and just a bit sad. They do have a lot in common, they should be there for each other, they wouldn't feel so alone.
