Primeval drabble: Ragged Wholes

February 3rd, 2012 (07:28 pm)

Title: Ragged Wholes

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: Since kristen_mara asked so nicely (aka threatened to withhold fics), I wrote this as a follow up to my last drabble The More Things Change . Written for prompt 248 shattered at primeval100.

Spoilers/warnings: Set post 2.07, fix-it

Summary: Still, they all show up – Connor, Abby, Jenny, Lester – telling him it’s okay.



-o-

Stephen’s weak – barely stitched together at the seams – but given the state of things, he wishes he were dead.

Still, they all show up – Connor, Abby, Jenny, Lester – telling him it’s okay. He thinks they can’t mean it until Cutter arrives.

“I’m sorry,” Stephen says roughly. “The team – it’s shattered for my doing.”

Cutter shakes his head. “Not shattered,” he returns, adamant. “Broken maybe, but nothing we can’t put together.”

So much has changed but as these broken pieces of his life fit together to make a new, ragged whole, he sees that some of it is for the better.

I certainly wished they'd gotten a more hopeful ending in canon.

Thanks :)

Cutter is the only person who could put it right.

////aka threatened to withhold fics////

*innocently bats eyelashes* Well, it worked, didn't it?

Yay, Stephen's survived and for them all visiting him, especially the most important visitors coming together: Nick and hope!

Thank you! (And you felt happy writing it, didn't you? *G*)

Having a good writing afternoon, adding to about four fics, then I saw this on LJ and was happier still.

It did. I'm such a pushover on things like that. It's not even funny.

And you felt happy writing it, didn't you?

LOL, yeah, yeah, I did. I just don't want to infringe upon your duties, you know :)

Thanks!

I so love your drabbles and fic.
They're so intense and sometimes heartbreaking, just like this one.

I'm quite happy that Primeval has such an active drabble comm. It's a great way to keep myself writing and posting :)

Thanks!

A little hope is a nice change from canon every now and then.

Sigh!

Gotta love quick and to the very lovely point:

Stephen’s weak – barely stitched together at the seams – but given the state of things, he wishes he were dead.

Just *sigh...

Drabbles are fun forays into writing -- especially when I want to get something done quickly! So many of my bunnies take so many words!

Thanks :)
