(1/2)So I've been thinking about ironflint Burr, bc you said you didn't know how he was. He likes to watch. Ham keeps meeting him by chance in bdsm clubs and seedy places like that, orgies, etc. He always stands outside the thick of it, watching, not even touching himself, even though he's hard. Ham propositioned him bluntly and Burr rejected him politely, but maybe they struck an odd friendship. Alex called him over when he was going to be publicly wrecked, gave him front seats to the show.
(2/2)Turns out Burr is also into listening, and Alex is good at talking, so Alex calls him every now and then and describes what has been done to him lately. He also accompanied in his glory holes trips, stood next to him as Alex blew guy after guy. Maybe, once Alex started having sex with Washington, he secretly recorded it and sent the file to Burr as a Christmas present. So they’re both comfortable with each other, even if they do argue a lot about things that aren’t sex.
THIS IS SO MUCH AND I’M REALLY IN LOVE WITH IT? ok i have two things to say about this.
SCENE: alex and aaron at a bar, after alex has already been kicked out of the bdsm club.
alex: you’re that guy who just watches.
alex: do you ever actually do anything?
alex: and just watching turns you on?
alex: are you a fucking voyeur robot, or do you actually ever talk?
aaron: Talking got you kicked out of the Leathers, if i recall correctly.
alex: you’re a fucking asshole.
aaron: [sarcastically] I could see how I could get a lot further with a mouth like that.
alex: well, robot voyeur asshole, i get off to you eying me like i’m a piece of fucking meat, so here’s my number. text me back if you want me to invite to watch sometime.
SECOND: Alex calling Burr and just rambling to him about sex when he’s feeling wild but for one reason or another he can’t do anything. Like it’s not as good as getting fucked up but it’s good enough when he can’t do anything else. him just going on about sex for hours and burr listening on the phone and sometimes he’s so quiet that alex isn’t sure that he’s hung up, but then when he goes “you there?” burr repeats everything alex said back to him, and in his liquid voice alex’s fucked up sex life sounds so good. somehow burr’s distance from the phone is better, makes him feel distant from himself, gets him out of his head as he spills his confessions, and then when he runs out of things he’s actually done he talks about thinks he wants to do, or things he’s fantasized about. after a while all of his fantasies are just washington, and then one day he calls burr and he’s like “burr, i fucking did it. i got him to fuck me and it was everything i dreamed of.”
“congratulations, alex,” burr says in his liquid voice, “tell me about it.” so he does.
