Jess had always been the odd one out. With her family, with her classmates, even at university she felt... different.

Then there was the ARC, and suddenly Jess was surrounded by people different to anyone she had ever known.

Lester, political genius. Matt, so knowledgeable about pretty much everything. Abby, ever resourceful and practical. Connor, techno-geek extraordinaire. Becker, always so brave and steadfast.

For the first time, Jess felt at home. They were all extraordinary. And yet, the things that had made them different all their lives were now the very things that made them indispensable members of the team.

Aww, yay! It's like X-Men or something, hee :D
I'm glad she feels at home now.

X men! lol! I'm now imagining Becker sprouting wolverine claws - he's already nearly fuzzy enough!

Ooh! Yum!! I've recently been reading an SGA AU where they are like X-Men, it was very cool. a Primeval AU in that style would be bloody awesome!

I don't know why Jess seems to be a recurring feature of my P100 drabbles at the moment! She just seems to keep fitting the prompt!

That's a great look at Jess and the team.

thanks. I started out thinking I'd write a drabble about Jess, and then suddenly realised it was really going to be about the whole team.

Aww, so lovely! I totally picture Jess as this left-out geek growing up, so it's nice that she finally finds her place with the ARC team.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 29th, 2012 05:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. I can totally see Jess not fitting in when she was younger, but the ARC team *all* seem to be people like that in one way or another!

thanks, they're all a bit 'different' at the ARC!
