Barry is kidnapped to be a sex slave and Len rescues him

This idea I’ve been kicking around for a while.

Barry is kidnapped by some unknown powerful group of time pirates that run a space station brothel hidden at the edge of the Vanishing Point, so they can avoid the Time Masters (previously) and effectively live forever. Other people come to them to purchase sex slaves, which the pirates acquire by kidnapping various metas and aliens they think will be most appealing.

Then they kidnap The Flash, and it’s up to the Legends to save him.

Only these guys are powerful and stacked with weaponry, way more than one tiny ship can take on now that the Time Masters have been destroyed.

This assumes an AU where Len lives and Barry never created Flashpoint, there’s just been this general sexual tension between the pair as we move on from the Zoom season and Len being part of a superhero team.

The obvious way to rescue Barry is to launch an undercover mission to purchase him. Len of course volunteers to be the buyer and has Mick and Sara as his ‘bodyguards’ while the rest wait on the Waverider in preparation of any trouble. Time is of the essence since Barry is scheduled to be sold at the next auction.

Naturally, the pirates have power-dampening collars to keep the slaves in line until they’re sold, which can also emit a slight shock when they misbehave. So to start, Len and his bodyguards get a tour of the place as a new buyer, and he even gets to see the new ‘stock’, which includes a weak and timid Barry who’s been stripped of his Flash suit down to barely existent underwear and the collar.

Len is positively seething internally at all of this, but has to play the role of interested buyer, while Barry looks on pleading silently to be saved.

The auction goes off mostly without a hitch (once Sara and Mick discreetly take out the bidding competition) and Len goes to pick Barry up, who falls against him in gratitude, even so skimpily dressed, barely able to keep from crying, because he felt so powerless and terrified of what might have happened if they hadn’t gotten there in time.

“Always a pleasure to save the hero, Scarlet. Let’s get out of here.”

“Wait. We can’t just leave.”

“Yes, we can. I own you now. We can walk right out of here.”

“What about the other slaves? We can’t let these people keep doing this.”

Len cannot believe Barry has to have a crisis of conscience now, when they are vastly outnumbered and outgunned. Normally, he’d agree to blast these assholes to kingdom come, but not if they have no chance of getting out themselves.

“I’m not leaving unless we put an end to this,” Barry insists.

Having to come up with a plan on the spot is Len’s specialty, so he proceeds to disable Barry’s collar while keeping it in place so no one else knows it doesn’t work, and tells him to follow his lead.

There are rooms available if the new owners want to ‘try out’ their purchases, which Len had initially said no thanks to, while Sara and Mick headed back to the ship to wait for them, but now as they’re walking the hallways, Len goes up to one of the guards—who has a master key that unlocks all of the collars, cells, and various rooms.

“Changed my mind. I feel like taking the speedster here for a test run. Got anything ready?”

The guard lets Len into a room, and Len asks if he wants to get a front row seat.

“What can I say, I like an audience.”

The guard is all for this, and goes in with them, though he waits just inside the door.

Len gets Barry on the bed and starts to pretend to feel him up. He kisses his neck for real and whispers for Barry to trust him, but his hands only look like they’re skimming his skin; he always remains just above Barry to play this kosher. Barry, of course, can’t deny that he sort of wishes it was otherwise since it’s Snart—but that is so not what he should be thinking about given the situation.

Len proceeds to ask if the guard wants to join them more hands-on.

“Speedsters vibrate, you know? Rarest jewels in the galaxy.”

The guard approaches, Len keeps miming touching Barry, but Barry bucks up and for a moment the touch is real and Barry moans, surprising them both—though not so much that Len isn’t able to grab the guard, knock him out, and take his key.

“Apologies for the tactic under these circumstances.”

“It was…fine.”

“Sounded more than fine,” Len smirks.

On their way out, they use the key to override everything on the station. Cue revolt, with Len giving the pirate owner of the whole place and nice salute just as he and Barry head to the Waverider. They make it out just as the place erupts into chaos. The rest is up to the people inside.

“That was reckless,” Len scolds Barry.

“I could have demanded to stay until we were sure the slaves took over.” It’s clear from radio chatter that this isn’t a concern; the pirates are done for.

“Always pushing, aren’t you, Scarlet?”

“Sometimes it’s worth it.”

Barry decides to push one more time and kisses Len before they meet up with the others.

Len jokingly brings up that he owns Barry now as often as possible.

If they play out master and slave later, it’s only because Barry feels safe with Len and asks him for it.

Hitch (2005)
  • Sara: Why?
  • Alex "Hitch" Hitchens: Because that's what people do. They leap and hope to God they can fly. Because otherwise... We just drop like a rock, wondering the whole way down : "Why in the hell did i jump?" But here I am, Sara, falling. And there's only one person that makes me feel like I can fly. That's you.
  • Sara: So, you kind of like me?
  • Alex "Hitch" Hitchens: No. I love you.
