Drabbles: Don't Turn Around and Parry and Riposte


I've been meaning to repost these for nearly a month now, but kept forgetting. They're both drabbles written for the April Team Fest drabble trees.

Title: Don’t Turn Around
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Pairing/characters: Abby/Connor
Rating: PG
Warnings: Angst
Spoilers: Vague series 4
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.
Word count: 100
Summary: “It’s over, Connor.”



“It’s over, Connor.”

Abby turned away. She didn’t want to see him cry.

“What? Why?”

“It’s not working.”

“But... you said...”

She could already hear the pain in his voice, and she didn’t dare turn around. She couldn’t let him see how much this was hurting her as well.

“That was the cretaceous, Connor. Things are different now.”

“Abby, please, it’s not different. We can do this. I’ll try harder, whatever you want. Please.”

“No, Connor.”

Abby knew it was for the best. He deserved better. She could never give him what he really needed. But she could do this.





Title: Parry and Riposte
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Pairing/characters: Jess/Becker
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Spoilers: None
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.
Word count: 100
Summary: There’s a fine line between sparring and flirting.



Jess watched the teams drag themselves back in from a particularly long and messy anomaly shout. Becker was the last one to hand his black box in.

“You did really well today,” Becker said, sounding impressed.

“You say that like you’re surprised,” Jess countered.

“No! I didn’t mean... What I meant was...”

Jess giggled.

Becker glared for a moment before a smile began to twitch at the corner of his mouth.

“You’re just too easy to wind up,” Jess grinned.

Becker leaned over and kissed her, smirking as he pulled back.

“And it’s far too easy to make you blush.”

Touché. For now.

Two great drabbles.

One made me sniff and one put a big smile on my face

thanks. I definitely went for the angst with the C/A one, glad you enjoyed the J/B.

Aw, poor Abby and Connor! But yay to Jess & Becker. Some nicely contrasting drabbles!

Thanks. Pretty much all my A/C drabbles end up being angsty these days, I have no idea why. The J/B was just fun!

Poor Abby and Connor :( Good drabble though.

And the Becker/Jess one is cute :)

My Abby/Connor bunnies seem to be stuck on angst setting lately. I really ought to write more fluff for them. Jess and Becker are such fun when they're bantering.

The first one was heartbreaking; the second, adorable and flirty. Nice job with both. :)

1) NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

2) Jess is quick and I'm pretty certain Becker will never be able to keep up with her. Very cute.

1) NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (in case you didn't catch that the first time)

hee! I get the feeling you're trying to tell me something about the first one... *evil grin*

God! You're quick! What gave me away? No, really, you can tell me, what was it? lol **hugs to all concerned**

Both really great.

*Hugs Connor and winks at Becker*

Nice contrasts in these two :)

thanks, I'm definitely stuck in angst mode for Connor/Abby.

Abby wants to be too strong. Nothing wrong with somebody at your side for some love and support :(

A sweet Becker/Jess interaction. They both know how to tease each other.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 29th, 2012 09:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Abby needs to listen to her heart and not her head sometimes. Becker and Jess are so much fun, though.

Oh dear, Abby's insecurities appear to be showing...

And Becker and Jess are really rather cute together!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 29th, 2012 09:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yep, Abby needs to listen to Connor and stop overthinking it.

Becker and Jess are great fun.
