Title: Perfect Fit
Author: opalmatrix
Rating: R
Warnings: m/f sex
Prompt: Discworld, Carrot/Angua: biting - "Don't do that."
Word count: : 559
Summary: A little thing like that won't stop him.
A/N: Written for springkink IX. Beta by the ever-attentive smillaraaq.

Carrot had overheard women talking about their sweethearts more times than he cared to think - guardsmen get around, after all - and he knew he wasn't a romantic kind of guy. He didn't think of romantic things like flowers and the moon when he looked at Angua.

He certainly thought something, though. He just couldn't have said what.

Right now, when he had her wrapped in his arms, and their lips were together, and their tongues too (who would have thought that was a good thing to do? but it was - so, so good), he felt like everything was in the right place at the right time. Everything fit.

Angua fit comfortably in his arms, and the thin shift she'd been wearing under her tunic fit tightly and revealingly over her wiry yet womanly body, and her backside fit just right into his two hands . And after he'd peeled the garment off, her breasts fit perfectly in his palms, and that hungry whimpering sound she made fit into his head in a way that went straight to the heat between his legs. And when she dragged him to the bed and almost tore off his tunic and britches, and pushed him down to lie flat, and knelt spreading over him, each of her knees fit alongside his waist like they'd been custom-made to do so. And when she lowered herself down over him - so tight so hot so tight - he fit inside her as though he'd been created to do just this, only this.

For a moment, they just breathed, she kneeling above, he sprawled beneath. She was too thin - he could count the ribs - and yet he never wanted to stop looking. She was flushed and sleek and shiny with sweat, tiny drops of moisture running down the soft roundness of her breasts, down over her belly to the navel that just fit his fingertip, into the golden down that started just beneath and thickened to darker gold curls down where they were joined together. He had to swallow a groan at that, and she opened her eyes, laughing, and bent down to kiss him. And then she started rocking gently in his lap, and he lost the few words he still had.

He could feel her lips and even her teeth on his jaw, on his throat as they moved together, and that fit the moment just perfectly. She buried her face against his shoulder and sucked his skin and nibbled it and -

"Yeowch! Don't do that!"

Everything stopped.

"Uh oh," whispered Angua, against his stinging skin. She sat up abruptly, and Carrot could feel her poised to flee. He dropped one hand on her thigh and squeezed.

"Sssh. Just wait ... ." He explored the bitten area with his fingertips and then looked at them. It was only bleeding a little bit.

"I'm sorry," she said. There was a trace of his blood on her lips. His eyes widened when he saw it, and his skin felt too tight. He thrust up into her, hard, so that she moaned.

"Don't be .. sorry," he panted. "Just ... be careful."

She bent to press her mouth against the tiny wound then, licking and sucking. Her arms wrapped around him and his around her, and once again, everything was exactly where it ought to be.

That's what I like about Carrot and Angua... at first blush they don't seem like they should work AT ALL, but they just... fit. I really like how you used that over and over to show just how well they work together.

"Perfect Fit"

I'm glad you liked it! (I'm wondering whether the OP did.)

I have to watch the repetition thing - sometimes I'm doing it purposely (like here, and in "Together"), and sometimes I just get caught up in the flow of the story and lose track of the language. smilla's good at making me notice.

This was very nice! I love Carrot's realization that they're not a cliche; they're better than that.

"Perfect Fit"

They almost have a Hakkai/Gojyo dynamic going on, with Angua having all the multilayered doubts and over-thinking, and Carrot being closer to the basic id (except that his id a lot tidier than Gojyo's).

I loved it! Really sexy, strangly sweet... wouldn't imagine Angua to be skinny, I always imagined her to be quite... not muscly, but close. More curvy. Meh, that's just me.
Anyway, what I also loved is the veer towards eroticism rather than porn, which is always difficult to balance out. You managed it perfectly! They're a difficult couple to write for, since Carrot's thought process is mostly off limits for Pterry and Angua seems to make up for it in spades! Her thought process, her worries, fears and doubts are what make it so interesting because they bounce off Carrot's attitude. Pterry actually said in an interview that Carrot sees a relationship as a series of boxes to be ticked off, which is difficult with Angua since she finds it difficult to let go of her inner conflict with the wolf. I always imagined her to... uh... take charge as it were, as if she needs to make sure he doesn't run away (to be fair, after the first time they got it on, he did freak out and draw his sword when he saw her as a wolf! Her fears are not unfounded!) I'd have thought also that in the *ahem* 'heat of the moment', the inner wolf gets a bit over-enthusiastic and it's handled brilliantly here. I love Carrot's reaction, it's so much like the way he acts at the end of the Fifth Elephant; 'I know why you're scared, but I know you better than anyone and I know how to make you feel safe. I don't need to say it every five minutes, but when I do, it makes far more impact and means so much more.' That's also the reason behind the watch she gets given before Thud! More a gesture of understanding.
I've been looking for a decent fic for these two for a long time so thanks so much!
Since I've been a C/A shipper for far longer than I care to admit, my opinion can count for a lot in this situation!
Finally, I think that you've accidentally foreshadowed I Shall Wear Midnight... I'll say no more.
Anyway, I've blabbed on far too much! I'd love to read more, so any others you have in the pipeline, let me know!
All the best
