It's not the rescuing that bothers Floyd. It's this feeling that he's the one responsible for what happened to Rick.
I'm not much of a DC fan, and I didn't even like the movie all that much, but this pairing really hit my buttons, and this fic demonstrate hits just about every reason why: fantastic, profane Floyd POV voice, great banter, satisfying competence, characters who are grown-ups with pasts. Plus a few things I always love: h/c that is gruff and competent, huddling for warmth, and, yeah, hot sex. It's a delight, and you don't need to know much about canon to enjoy it.

There are many ways a man can worship. The fact Alvis loves this, and loves her, makes it more sacred, not less.
So, I always have a thing in my dear author letter about how I enjoy reading about consensual knifeplay/bloodplay, and every once in a while, the Yule goat delivers with fantastic porn w/ feelings. A few years ago I got an amazing Raven Boys fic in this vein (so to speak), and this year, this wonderful Killjoys story--all the more amazing because the pairing and kink is canon. This is a short fic, but it addresses so many levels of Dutch & Alvis's emotional relationship as well as their physical one.
Okay! Back home now, and hoping to read a bit more of the collection. Hope everyone had a good holiday.
