Primeval drabble: Acceptance (Kept verse)

feeling: determined

Title: Acceptance

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: Next in the Kept drabble verse. With thanks to lena7142.

Summary: But Stephen had held on so long, he’d fought so hard. He’d got what he wanted.



-o-

Stephen writhed helplessly, but Cutter held him fast.

“Hold on,” Cutter said. Distantly, people were yelling. This was the ARC, Stephen realized vaguely. “Please.

But Stephen had held on so long, he’d fought so hard. He’d got what he wanted.

Maybe that was enough. He’d never believed in signs -- the alignment of stars, the full moon, the arrangement of planets -- but his acceptance was almost spiritual.

Nick jostled him. “Stephen.

Stephen smiled. “It’s okay,” he murmured.

“Stephen,” Cutter begged.

“Thank you,” Stephen breathed as everything dimmed. The darkness rose, and Stephen sank into Nick’s grasp with a smile.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh about covers it!

Nick begging, and Stephen being at peace, and me meeping and flailing

Beautiful angst - now fix it *G*

(And I'd forgotten he'd come through into the ARC - Cutter must have got a heck of a surprise when going for his morning coffee, hee. Hopefully soldiers go through the anomaly and nab Helen too.)

It'd be really annoying to kill him after everything, I think.

Thanks!

Very annoying *g*

And I realised I wrote *pleasing eyes* instead of *pleading eyes* LOL!

LOL, it sort of amuses me to think about spending almost a year writing a fix it just to let Stephen die in the end. I think it's unlikely at this point.

Thanks :)

Sigh...

As always, just wonderful. *getting weepy

There's a courageous acceptance that I love here. Stephen, even when conflicted, was so courageous and this gratitude is another lovely example of it.

Fave part:

“Thank you,” Stephen breathed as everything dimmed. The darkness rose, and Stephen sank into Nick’s grasp with a smile.

--It's simple, but it says everything.

You can't go into depth with 100 words, or I'm sure it'd be more angsty :)
