Drabble: I've Got A Theory

Written for primeval100 challenge 300 - picture prompt.

I know I don't normally post drabbles for my own prompts, but since it's a special occasion I couldn't resist.

PS. I make no apology to anyone who now has that song stuck on their brain. It was going round in my head all afternoon at work, so I thought I'd share *evil grin*


Title: I’ve Got A Theory
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Nick, Connor
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Spoilers: None
Challenge: 300 – Picture Prompt
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.



The anomaly rotated serenely, light glittering and reflecting as the shards slid past each other into infinity.

“Maybe it’s a wormhole created by an imploding black hole.”

Nick glanced sideways at Connor, whose grin didn’t quite manage to hide his genuine wonder.

As theories went, however, it seemed unlikely.

“Maybe it’s a rupture in the Earth’s magnetic field.”

Possible, Nick allowed.

“Maybe in the future someone invents time travel but it goes horribly wrong and creates all the anomalies.”

Far-fetched, but not entirely impossible, Nick decided.

Connor threw him a cheeky grin.

“Maybe it really is an alien spaceship.”

“Connor!”

Grumbles about earworms aside, lovely drabble :)

Hee, thanks. I blame Anthony Head - he was on The One Show on Monday evening, and they showed a clip of him singing in the Buffy ep, and it got stuck in my brain.

I do like that 'Connor with anomaly' icon, btw!

He does have some 'interesting' theories, bless him.

Hee! Given the circumstances, I think all of those theories are emminently possible! *g*

True, we never really did find out what was causing them, or what they were, so there's nothing to say he isn't right somewhere in that lot!

I love all those little Connor and Nick moments in the early series. I can just imagine them geeking out and brainstorming anomaly theories.
