The Price of Lust

TITLE: The Price of Lust

AUTHOR: RoswellOracle

RATING: Mature/Adult for language, violence, & sexual situations


REPOSTING: Please ask permission before reposting. I like to know where my story is going to live.

FEEDBACK: Feel free to send e-mail feedback to the contact link. Corrections are appreciated and all questions will be answered as quickly as possible.

DISCLAIMER: Roswell, the characters and the story, are owned by Melinda Metz, Jason Katims and Fox Studios (although the way they have abused them I don't think they deserve them) and are used here purely for entertainment purposes.

Any additional characters or situations not mentioned in the show are the creation of my dementia.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: Thank you to AlienFriend for helping with beta duties on the story!

CREDITS: Some situations and dialog from ‘Max in the City’

AUTHOR’S NOTE: I've been wanting to try writing some different UC couples, and this is what happened, lol. It started out as a short, smutty story, but has kind of evolved into an alt ending for season 2.

Warning - This is not a romance where Tess and Rath find love together. It is a dark story about lust and obsession.

This is for the Roswell’s Inferno fanfic challenge at Roswell Heaven.
Rules -
1. Pick one of the seven deadly sins, pick a Roswell character or pairing, and write a story!
2. Short stories, but they must be at least 1000 words in length. (that is about 2 1/2 pages, btw)

SUMMARY: Tess is surprised by an unexpected attraction. But sometimes there are consequences for following your desires.

The story starts in the episode ‘Max in the City’ when Lonni and Rath take Max and Tess to see their home in the subway.

STATUS: In Progress

Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 - Part 4 - Part 5
Part 6- Part 7 - Part 8 - Part 9 - Part 10
Part 11 - Part 12

Feedback for Price of Lust


I have to admit I usually run from anything that involves Tess. Just don't like that character, but I understand you writers get tired of writing for us dreamers all of the time. And I know how outstanding you are with regards to anything Roswell.

This is hot......and very different.
- Carolyn


I am totally into this story. I like stories that are a little rough around the edges and you write sex hotter than almost any writer out there. I am loving this little story and I hope you post more soon!
- sarammlover


Such a great story! Not my usual pairing, but it's so inventive and steamy, that I'm totally on board.

Your writing is so lush. Keep it coming.
- Tashchen


I'm loving this fic. I love how you've written Rath, This is how I think he would of been written if the show could of been more adult.
- BringMeBack


Good god that last update was insane! Lonni and Rath are too wicked. I have to admit I can't help loving how you write Rath, so unapologetic, just shameless, great writing.

I love how you've intertwined your story through the show. To see everything from this slant, a totally different angle through Tess, very interesting.

I can't help but enjoy her 'matter of fact, blunt way of thinking.' her inner dialogue is so spot on, not to mention her use of powers to get exactly what she wants.

you've so nailed this character in a way I've never read before.
As always perfectly written,
Thanks for more of your genius Liz!
