pprfaith: Morse Code
“Boyd used to come git me, sometimes, did ya know?” Ava asks, a jar of shine on the table between them, a new pink stain on the carpet that neither of them steps on or looks at.

Raylan’s too far gone at this point to do more than grunt and Ava pats his head, says, “When Bowman got real mean, Boyd’d sometimes show up the next day and take me out, like a boy takin’ out his girl. He’d buy me lunch and take me to his place and he’d say real nice things to me, things Bowman weren’t ever gonna say to me.”

She gives Raylan a long, speculative look, like she thinks he might maybe try to steal her momma’s fine china if she looks away too long. “I always thought he was saving them nice things up for someone special, but they weren’t ever there, so he gave them to me, because he knew they’d make me feel better for myself.”

Blearily, Raylan glares at her and when she smiles at him, real soft like, he drops his head on the table and closes his eyes and pretends he’s anywhere Kentucky isn’t, anywhere where there’s no hollers filled with memory and no Crowders or Givens’, no shine or coal or familiar faces.

When that don’t work, he reaches for a shine again and understands how this county turns people into alcoholics.

pprfaith: maybe you're my favorite sinner
Coming and going, running and stopping. A direct continuation of 'Bulletville'.
He says her name, loud and clear, before he gets within thirty feet of where he can just see the orange of her vest peeking through the scraggly underbrush.

She doesn’t give herself away by asking if it’s him, but she doesn’t shoot him as he comes around into her line of vision either.

“Are you alright?” is the first thing out of her mouth, followed closely by, “Where’s Boyd?”

Raylan remembers, then, maybe for the first time, that he isn’t the only one who has a history with Boyd that didn’t start with bloodshed.

“That kid’s dead cause of you and your bullshit,” says Raylan, which is true, in its way, and not, in so many others.

“Men who think themselves instruments of the Lord are deluded, Raylan,” says Boyd, does not finish it with as you well know.

“Be that as it may, that’s a goddamn terrible way to go,” says Raylan and there’s a flicker of his eyes to the left, and Boyd knows what that is, even if Raylan doesn’t. Raylan’s never been afraid of dying. He’s probably not even frightened by the method. [1172]

vicodin_vixens: Long Time Coming
When Boyd comes out of the church, arms spread wide, Raylan can't help but picture him as he was the last time they were together.

He feels a tightening in his jeans, and tries to focus on more relevant matters. Things like rocket launchers, and flaming churches. Dead racists from Oklahoma.

It helps.

Right up until Boyd smiles.

Every bad decision he ever made, until the day he left Harlan County, was at the behest of one of those smiles. [~7500 words of sheer *angst*. Written in flashback style, with a killer ending that just makes you wanna hurt someone on the boys' behalf.]

niennahfic: Some Brokeback Thing
He looked over at Boyd, who was taking him in, the long, skinny sprawl of him. Boyd’s eyes stopped just about where his holster would usually be. Tonight it was on the table by the phone, down the other end of the room. Raylan felt strange without the comforting weight on his hip, but to his own surprise he did not feel vulnerable.

Well I am flattered, Raylan, said Boyd quietly.

Raylan quirked an eyebrow. Oh? he said. I didn’t think a chair and two plastic cups was much of a welcome.

Boyd smiled. I do believe this is the first time since you came back to Harlan County that you haven’t been a hair’s breadth from drawin on me.

Raylan laughed slowly, felt it deep in his chest. Well, I ain’t got nothin to shoot you for this time. Wouldn’t be justified. [~4000 words of amazing dialogue written in spot-on voice. The only thing that would make it better would be the author using some GODDAMN QUOTATION MARKS. (/frustrated)]

sadiesin13: A Night In Room Eight
Raylan shook his head and washed the cloth out in the warm water before going back to clean some more.

“Boyd, I let ya live twice when I had every good excuse in the world to put you down and now, you‘re sittin‘ here half naked on my bed and I‘m givin‘ you a sponge bath. I‘d say you‘re the luckiest man in Harlan, if not Kentucky.”

Boyd chuckled but winced in pain as soon as he did, though the smile never left his face. “So, I was right. You missed intentionally.” [2626]

Harlan County - Kink Meme -- Untitled, by fantasticpants
There's a twitch in the vicinity of Raylan's mouth that could, quite possibly, be a smirk.

"You think I don't have the lawman look in me," Boyd says, accusing.

"I think the nakedness is detracting from the overall image."

Boyd supposes there is a certain amount of truth to that, but he's never been one for suits and neckties, and he isn't planning to get dressed just to try a hat on. "Well, I'm an outlaw lawman, Raylan. We can't all play by the rules."

jeanquirieplus: Redeemed and Summoned by Name
He can feel Boyd smile into the hair at his temple, his breath warm against his ear. “Raylan,” he says, drawing the word out in two distinct parts, the vowels stretching like notes until they disappear. “Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.” [~1900]

Nineteen Times Five, a Justified fanfic by vanillafluffy
I really like the style in which this was written. Normally I have a hard time with second person POV, but in this story it really worked. It's never made clear who is narrating the story, but whether it's Boyd or Raylan doesn't really seem to matter: the end result is the same. This is a short but marvelously introspective piece.[641]
