Primeval Drabble: Belief

May 14th, 2012 (07:49 pm)
embarrassed

feeling: embarrassed

Title: Belief

Disclaimer: I do not own Primeval.

A/N: Written for primeval100, the prompt was intensive care. Post 2.07 (AU!)

Summary: There’s a chance to make things right.



-o-

Cutter has never been one for belief.

But now, in the intensive care unit, Cutter has to wonder. In the bed, Stephen hardly looks human. Most of his body is wrapped in gauze, hiding the deep bites and claw marks that crisscross his body. He lost a kidney and his bowels are barely stitched together. His shredded lungs can’t breathe on their own yet, and the blood that pumps his heart is hardly his own.

But still, his heart beats. Air moves through his lungs. There’s a chance to make things right.

So Cutter sits, holds Stephen’s hand, and believes.

YES!!! (Well, ouch and meep and flail for what you've done to Stephen, with the imagery and all the transfusions, but YOU LET HIM LIVE AND THERE IS HOPE!!!!)

Huge angst, love the Cutter POV, and we know that they'll get there. Handhold for the win :)

Letting him live is sometimes the best you can hope for with me. My muse adores angst. And Stephen and Cutter are so prone to it!

Thanks!

Meep! But he's alive and he'll make it, of course he will. I like this, it's grim but still hopeful.

A little hope can do wonders -- especially in fandom.

Thanks!
