Darren takes a deep breath before finishing his email to work. He has to give notice that he will not be available for anymore privates and he knows work isn’t going to like that. They make the majority of their money on offering private chat sessions and telling clients that they can get a longer, more personable experience for just a quick bit of cash and for Darren to say he’s now not going to do that when he used to… Yeah, work isn’t going to be happy. But that’s okay. Darren is fine with that because this wasn’t the career he wanted long-term anyways and Chris? Yeah, Chris is definitely long term.!fic, site:archiveofourown, fandom:gleerpf, rating:explicit, pairing:chris.colfer/darren.criss, ~author:dizzy, ~author:savvymavvy, kink:daddy!kink, kink:d/s, kink:oral, genre:porn, genre:au, note:series, series/universe:RPF:glee:underneathyourskin!verse, au:porn!au

He is the Winter Soldier. He is James Buchanan Barnes. He’s not one and he’s not the other, and he’s not sure if that makes him anything worth saving.   [In which the Winter Soldier leads Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson on a wild goose chase through Eastern Europe so that he can learn more about the man who actually thinks he can be saved.

I’m VnoERY pleased to say I’ve seen THIS look on a woman’s face in this situation, but it has ALWAYS been when she has me restrained and was rubbing herself to multiple orgasms on my thigh while I could only watch her face and HOPE she would soon want to let ME cum too!!!!!

Y’know, this is almost not my jam— I wish we could see him just a little better— but gosh, I really do appreciate her enjoyment! (How sad is it that that’s kind of rare? That this counts as “non-traditional” imagery?)

Yeah, I like this. I relate. Way more than to the sneering masturbatrix. And I love how she’s touching him. And that he’s unbound, just laying there so she can have her way.

Nice. I approve of this.
