Primeval drabble: Eons

April 2nd, 2012 (09:20 am)
morose

feeling: morose

Title: Eons

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: I think kristen_mara is warping my brain, because now all I seem to think about are ways to fix Nick and Stephen. So this is set post 2.07 with such a goal in mind. Written for primeval100 and the prompt good things come to those who wait.

Summary: Good things come to those who wait.



-o-

Nick was not a patient man. Stephen chided him often in this, reminded him that the best results took time.

“History has waited eons,” Nick used to say. “I’d rather not, if I can help it.”

With Stephen, this was easy. He was steady and predictable, meticulous and methodical. He was Cutter’s perfect complement until the day he died.

It seemed to be years – eons, maybe – before an anomaly opened and Stephen came back.

“I told you,” Stephen said as Nick stood shaking and gaping, tears in his eyes, heart in his throat. “Good things come to those who wait.”

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! (To both the fix-it and my good influence on you *G*)

Thanks for this - it's a lovely look at their complimentary/opposing natures and Stephen's faith.
