           Connor wanted to be the hero, the action man, but frequently ended up feeling like he was actually the annoying sidekick who always got into trouble and needed to be rescued.

            On this occasion it was Abby who had dragged him out of danger, Abby who was kicking the crap out of some ridiculously oversized amphibian. All Connor could do was cower behind her, cradling his broken arm and trying not to do anything even more embarrassingly unmanly like scream or faint.

            He wanted to be the hero. But he had to admit, sometimes it was nice to feel protected.

            Abby watched as Connor poked at his shiny new plaster cast.

            She wanted to be annoyed with him for barging in and startling the creature when she had everything under control. But Abby knew he’d only done it because he thought she was in danger.

            Until she met Connor, Abby had never known what it was like to have someone who would risk his life for her without a moment’s hesitation. Once she got beyond the rather scary fact of that being necessary in the first place, it was kind of comforting.

            Besides, she’d do the same for him any day.

This was great! I love how Abby and Connor are always saving each other in the show, they need each other, they're like a little double act. Bless them :)

Thanks. They are a lovely little action and comedy double act.

Aw bless 'em, love this pair! I've been sold on this pairing ever since the "Tell Abby and Connor to stay out of trouble" line. That and the nearly but not quite holding hands just made me want to squish them.

I think I've been sold on this pairing since series 1. And it's great that on the show it's not just one getting in trouble and the other doing the rescuing all the time - they've both saved each other so many times, and you just know that they're going to keep doing it until one of them does something so suicidally heroic that they don't come back from it (which I totally don't want to happen, but if either one of them ever goes, that's how I'd like it to be).

Oh lord, I don't want to even contemplate losing either of these two! They're way too cute for that. And I still want to swoon over a thirty year old Connor, as per Emma's drabble ........

"I still want to swoon over a thirty year old Connor,"

You think Primeval will still be going when Connor gets to thirty? That's optimistic of you. *grin* Although I sure as hell wouldn't complain if it was still going in five or six years time.

I can dream ............

Awwwww... *huggles Abby and Connor*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 9th, 2008 06:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
They are adorable, and I couldn't help just this little bit of Connor-whumping (especially after your fic the other day).

*oi! I'm at the front of this Connor-huggling queue*
telperion_15 From: telperion_15 Date: March 9th, 2008 06:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Okay, I'll get in line behind you then...

Connor-whumping seems to have turned into something of a national pastime! At least it has in my world. Which is unfortunate, as I really don't want to whump him - it just seems to happen that way... *g* I suppose you can't have the comfort without the hurt...

mmmmm.... Connor h/c. I like that idea. Mostly because I'm strange, as we established over on your lj the other day. You know what I'm like with angst. The more I like a character, the more I want bad things to happen to him, so that he can either be a hero, or get a bit of h/c. This doesn't bode well for Connor in my fics.

Hmmm... the more I look at what I just write, the more I think it looks a bit wierd and perverted. Which is not how I meant it. I just don't know how to describe it any other way.
telperion_15 From: telperion_15 Date: March 9th, 2008 07:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, I think we also established that we're all strange, so you're definitely in good company!

The more I like a character, the more I want bad things to happen to him

You're not the only who thinks this, trust me! *g* If someone told me I could onyl read one genre of fanfic for the rest of my life, I would always chose angst (so long as I can specify a happy ending to go with it!). And you can't have the happy ending without the unhappiness coming first, and besides, it would be boring if everyone was happy and safe all the time!

And of course, they're pretty when they're broken!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 9th, 2008 10:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
I know exactly what you mean. My idea of a perfect fic has angst, action heroics, angst, h/c, angst, favourite character in mortal peril and/or badly injured, more angst, more h/c, and then a happy (or at the very least a positive) ending for the good guys - even if this involves someone dying in a heroic manner to save the world or someone they love. Maybe throw in a bit more action heroics, depending on the genre.

This maybe explains why I used to like Buffy and Angel so much. And Stargate SG1 fic, where Daniel-whumping was practically compulsory.

And a definite vote for pretty when broken. And wherever possible wet as well. *evil grin*

Yay! Yet more lovely Connor drabbles :D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 9th, 2008 10:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
*grin* Everyone's gone mad with this one.

If I might suggest it, could you run a 'Connor' challenge again sometime, because I'm sure people will still be thinking of more drabbles long after the Tuesday deadline, and judging by the response to this one it'll be a popular one. I suppose there's always the ARC for any more, but it's an idea.
cordeliadelayne From: cordeliadelayne Date: March 10th, 2008 05:04 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, I'm sure I'll issue another Connor challenge at some point, he's definitely the most popular of the character challenges so far. :D

Awww! They just make me want to huggle them both. *smiles fondly*

Thanks. Those two are very cute together.

Awww, they make a sweet couple (nods)

Connor and Abby are adorable, and I love the way they keep saving each other from dangerous situations all the time.
