Lester ran into Connor, almost literally, as the young man emerged from the bathroom.

“Look where you’re- Connor, what on earth happened to you?”

The towel around Connor’s waist did nothing to hide the mass of scrapes and bruises on his thin, pale body.

Connor attempted to cover his chest with his arms.

“Um, you know, the usual. Dinosaurs.”

“Are you...?”

Lester hesitated, frowned, and mentally replayed the list of Connor’s ‘accidents’ in the months since Cutter’s death. No, he wasn’t okay.

Lester finally allowed himself to recognise the truth in Connor’s eyes. Bruises were the least of his problems.

Poor Connor!! Poor battered and hurting Connor! Lovely angst *beams*

Well, with a prompt like this weeks one it would be hard to write anything else :) I think you should combine the two and have poor childhood damaged Becker comfort poor angsty battered mourning Connor. It's the only kind thing to do :)

Lol! I couldn't help it, Connor is far too pretty when he's broken, and I just had to indulge *evil grin*

I'm sure normal Becker!whumping service will be resumed soon :-)

Oh no!
*huggles Connor*
I do hope Lester helps him.

Connor needs lots of hugs. Maybe Lester might provide some?

Oh Connor really does hurt the best. (And now clearly needs comfort!)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 31st, 2013 08:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee, definitely. Connor is just made for angsty hurt/comfort, poor boy.

Aw. Bless him!!! That was very stark.

Poor Connor, he's just too breakable. Lester might comfort him, maybe.

Ouch, very visceral and real.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 31st, 2013 08:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. Connor breaks so easily, poor boy.

Becker must be breathing a sigh of relief ;) Though I'm sure he'd then feel just as sad about poor Connor as we do! Glad that Lester has realised the truth and that's a great last para

I need to leave Becker alone occasionally, so he can recover from the latest bout of angst and pain. And we all know I was breaking Connor long before we even met Becker!

I'm sure Lester will provide some comfort, even if it's reserved, sarcastic comfort.

Nicely done :)

Thanks. I can't resist a bit of Connor!whumping occasionally.

*meep* Poor Connor... *hugs him*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 3rd, 2013 06:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think Connor needs all the hugs he can get right now.
celeste9 From: celeste9 Date: February 4th, 2013 05:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
Poor Connor! I think Lester should hug him, very carefully. *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 4th, 2013 08:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
He needs *someone* to hug him, that's for sure!
cordeliadelayne From: cordeliadelayne Date: February 5th, 2013 10:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, poor Connor!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 7th, 2013 08:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
With a prompt like that I *had* beat someone with the angst stick!
