Primeval drabble: Most Things

feeling: cranky

Title: Most Things

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: The prompt was Philip Burton . As I've not seen S4 and S5, I have to thank lena7142 for giving me some information on Philip. Hopefully this fits :)

Spoiler: Set post S5. Canon character deaths.

Summary: Most things in Connor’s job got easier.



Most things in Connor’s job got easier.

The hours no longer bothered him. Using guns got less exciting and he found his aim was actually passable these days. It didn’t scare him as much as it used to; the wayward dinosaurs and other creatures were fearsome, but there was only so much terror he could muster. Even the awe got easier to handle. One trip through time was really like another in the end.

But standing at Philip Burton’s empty grave, he reflected that some things never did.

Captain Ryan, Stephen, Cutter. Sarah and the rest.

These things never did.

Meep! I can see Connor going to Burton's grave.

Great look at how the job has altered for Connor over time. Though you were supposed to wait three months to pull another death fic after that last one, missy *gives pointed look*

It's funny because I don't know anything about Burton. I had to ask lena7142 for a rundown of his character in order to write this at all. So I'm glad it worked!

And LOL, yeah, I guess I did technically have a dead Stephen in this one. Apologies!

Thanks :)

Ouch! That's vivid - and I can imagine Connor thinking like this.

Primeval:Burton

I can imagine this. Connor did see a side to Burton that the other's didn't. I like to think he could still mourn him.

I actually know virtually nothing about Burton, so I'm glad that this still works despite my scant knowledge :)

Thanks!
