There was only one thing he knew for certain would work when the memories got the better of him. Alcohol. And lots of it. )

So if this is just you being curious now, using me as an experiment, then this has to end when we leave Johannesburg )

Is it silly of me to be giddy that one of my Strike Back stories on A03 just went over 1,000 hits? :-)

I'll Carry You - by AgtSpooky

I'm bummed that I didn't have time to write a new one in January, after writing one in September, October, November and December. But my new ebook is taking priority. Hopefully I can get back to Michael and Damien in March, since I already have another story sketched out. :-)

It's MY birthday but YOU get the gift - of fic! Enjoy my Strike Back boys celebrating Christmas.

They shared the bed that night. There wasn't even a conversation or any hesitation. It was what they both wanted. What they needed. )

The end of another successful mission. If you count the death of Michael’s wife, Damien’s CIA past rearing it’s ugly head and their commanding officer in the hospital with a gunshot wound to the stomach successful. But for Section 20, this was a win. This was the world they lived in. )

Notes: This is my take on several missing scenes in season five, particularly the series finale.

This is a sequel to I'll Carry You. It's not terribly important that you read that one but it will give you an idea of how Michael and Damien's relationship started and where they thought they were going from there.

Summary: After the events in Black Bear prison that brought them together, Michael Stonebridge thought he had a future with Damien Scott. But then it was over before it ever really began. With Section 20 decimated, all Scott and Stonebridge have left is each other. Is it too late to try and start again?

Michael looked down at his hands, stained red with Damien's blood. How had it all gone so wrong, so fast? )

I recently got the season 1 DVD set of Strike Back and I've been listening to the commentary on the episodes. Was watching episode 8 last night and Sullivan Stapleton (Damien) and the director of the episode were doing the commentary.

There's a scene in a hospital after Michael Stonebridge has been injured and Damien Scott is standing at his bedside as he wakes up. They have a nice exchange that's unfortunately interrupted way too soon. I nearly fell off my bed as the director says:

"Of course the real love affair in this whole story is Scott and Stonebridge themselves."

What the…? LOL! OMG, I couldn't agree more!

And then Sullivan laughs and says, "Yeah, dude, if that's the way you want to say it."

Director: "Lots of the critics picked up on the bromance after the very first episode. It's rare to have that male/male relationship that's caring."

Sullivan: "They're in a good place - the banter, knowing they can trust one another."

I was seriously floored by that entire conversation. I just wished that Philip Winchester (Michael) had also been part of that commentary. I would've loved to have gotten his reaction to the director's statement as well.

So yeah, that was a nice treat and my little slashy heart couldn't have been happier. :-) I think it's funny that earlier in the day I found this awesome picture of Sullivan and Philip (which to me looks like they were interrupted while dancing together ) and then the love affair comment that night. Yep, I love me some Michael/Damien. :-)

And now I'm off to finish my outline for my next SB story after that inspiration!

Notes: My first Strike Back fic! This is an AU-ish version of episodes 4x07 and 4x08. I always thought the prison episode screamed for a missing scene and I always wanted it to be Michael showing up at Damien’s hotel room instead of Major Nina Pirogova.

Summary: Forced to have sex at gunpoint in Black Bear prison, Michael and Damien’s relationship is forever changed.


Michael tried to hide his sadness behind a smile as Damien’s face wavered and blurred, death taunting him. “Copy that,” he replied thickly )

Hey all my fellow Strike Back fans! We're getting closer to Michael and Damien's return in a few months! Here's a sneak peek behind the scenes video...

Filming on final season paused after Sullivan Stapleton injury

sullivan-stapleton-strike-back-cinemax.jpg
For the fellow Strike Back fans on my flist.....

Fans of the Cinemax original series "Strike Back," some bad news: Production on the action drama's fourth and final season has been put on a lengthy hiatus due to star Sullivan Stapleton's recent off-set injury.

The series was at work in Bangkok, Thailand when Stapleton experienced a rather serious injury while exploring the exotic locale during his free time. As the series requires he and his co-lead Philip Winchester be in peak physical condition, production will break for six months to allow the actor to fully recover.

Work in Thailand will continue, as schedule, through March, with the series filming around the injured actor, who had already filmed a majority of his scenes to work around the promotional duties for his upcoming film, "300: Rise of an Empire."

Once work in Thailand wrapped, the series was due to move to Hungary, but will instead break until the fall. The hiatus will likely impact the premiere date of the final season, which was to bow later this year, though that has yet to be confirmed.

HBO/Cinemax and its "Strike Back" production partners, Sky and Left Bank Pictures issued the following statement: "After an off-set accident involving Sullivan Stapleton, there has been a change in the 'Strike Back' production schedule. Following completion of shooting in Thailand, production in Hungary will be on hiatus to allow him time to recover. We plan on resuming production in the fall. HBO/Cinemax, Sky and Left Bank Pictures all join in wishing Sullivan a full and speedy recovery."


~~~~~~~

Man, I wonder what Sully did to himself. Sounds serious and painful. :-(   I wasn't too happy to read that HE has filmed nearly all his scenes. Which means that Damien and Michael won't be spending too much time together. And their relationship is the main reason I watch the show. I'm totally afraid for how this last season is going to go and I'll probably end up wishing it had ended with season three, where Damien and Michael were both happy and in a good place. Now that the creators and writers know this is the final season I have a feeling they're going to kill them both off. Because that's status quo for Strike Back. :-(

Okay, who here on my flist was telling me about Strike Back, that recommended I watch it. It's driving me crazy that I can't remember because I want to say THANK YOU!!

Yes, I have fallen hard for Damien Scott and Michael Stonebridge. :-)

I've never been interested much in military shows, so I didn't think this would appeal to me. And honestly, the only reason I decided to tune in was that I saw the blurb for the season three premiere and it said along the lines of "Scott and Stonebridge's vacation is interrupted…"

Okay, wait, back up the train! These guys go on vacation together??

Yeah, my bromance factor just jumped off the chart. I needed to check out this show! LOL!

Thankfully I have Cinemax On Demand and there was all of seasons one and two just waiting for me. I've now mainlined all of season one and half of season two in like, a week.

There are pros and cons to Strike Back. Let me start with the cons - the insane body count in every single episode. It's a military show, so it's kind of to be expected, but I swear at least three dozen people in every episode are shot or blown up, or my favorite - shot in the head at close range. The blood factor is sky high. There is a lot of nudity. If you like boobs, this is the show for you. Damien Scott will screw a woman in every episode (more on that in a bit). It's a bit formulaic. Maybe it's because I've watched 15 episodes one right after another, but there's usually a person that needs to be rescued from hostile forces, or a piece of technology that needs to be recovered. The guys are dropped in, save the person, kill the bad guys, and leave. A little variety would be nice.

The pros - Damien and Michael's relationship. These are two guys who were complete strangers to one another in the pilot episode, and five episodes later are saying things to each other like,

"That's why you love me." and
"I need you in there with me" - "It's because I complete you, isn't it?"

Seriously?? LOL! And there's a lot more where that came from. When they're not shooting at things they've got some excellent dialogue between them. It's truly why I put up with the body count. I'm only halfway through the second season and they've gone through a lot of crap together and have really forged a bond. Both of them have been shot and captured and beat up and the other one always shows up to rescue the other.

That's another reason that Damien screwing a random woman in every episode doesn't bother me. Because it means nothing to him. He never really has a connection with any of them. It's a form of release for him (because he hasn't hooked up with Michael yet? heh, heh) and that's about it. And then there's also the fact that Michael's wife is now out of the picture, freeing them both up! ;-)

I've just been impressed with how they've let these two macho, military guys show some feelings and concern for one another instead of just saying "buck up!".

All in all, I'm glad I checked it out and I'm looking forward to finishing season two and getting caught up with season three that just started.

P.S. - also how could I not check out a show where one of the actor's name's is Winchester?? What's even funnier is that he's an American actor playing a Brit and the other guy is an Aussie playing an American! Wha…? LOL!
