Primeval drabble: What Was (And What Will Be)

July 21st, 2011 (07:33 am)

Title:  What Was (And What Will Be)

Disclaimer:  Not mine.

A/N:  A very random drabble based off the events of 2.01.  Comes in at 100 words according to my word count.

Summary:  Cutter and Stephen both try to move ahead.  Set post 2.01.

-o-

The past beckons Cutter.  He wants to go back and change things.  The future doesn’t seem like it’s his anymore, like it’s worth living.  Stephen’s wrong about a lot, but he’s still Cutter’s common sense, telling him what he already knows.  Cutter leaves the past behind while he still can.

Stephen doesn’t want to remember the past.  He’s spent years making a future despite his mistakes, but something always drags him back--Helen, a raptor, it’s all the same.  Stephen just can’t run fast enough.  This time, his team pulls him free.  Stephen fears he won’t always be so lucky.

You know by now how much these two kill me. I just want to put them in a room and lock them there until they figure it all out. And then maybe it wouldn't have had to end so horribly for them all around.

Thanks :)

And now I really want to write more Primeval fic.

With these two, I can see it more than most. At least in theory. Because they just repressed so much so it's almost anyone's guess as to what they really felt. Pretty, screwed up boys. Make it better!! Mostly I just want them to talk and hug and move on with life sans Helen and impending doom.

Thanks! These two characters fascinate me quite a bit but writing fic for this show still makes me nervous because of the linguistic differences between America and the UK :)

And they both really do need a good thwap.

Such lovely foreboding

Simple and it says it. It's such a lovely and cold foreboding of Stephen's eventual fate. This makes it feel inevitable:

Fav Part:

Stephen just can’t run fast enough. This time, his team pulls him free. Stephen fears he won’t always be so lucky.

stephen's eyes

It is such a sad fate and it seems like it could have been so easily prevented. Poor Stephen! (And poor us!)

Thanks!
