Different

Jenny isn’t Claudia. Nick tells himself that every day. No matter how similar they look, she’s different. Different strengths, different weaknesses, different lives.

Different loves.

Lately it’s been getting easier to separate the memories from this reality. And that should be a good thing, but it isn’t. Nick knows that it’s selfish and unfair to Jenny, but a part of him wants to see Claudia in her, no matter how much it hurts. Because he knows that the day when he looks at her and only sees Jenny, will be the day that he lets go of Claudia Brown forever.

Oh wow, a sad little sting in the tail! Excellent drabble writing *g*.

bloody hell, you were quick off the mark! I'd only just finished cross posting it to Primeval100 and you'd already commented.

Thanks. I find it hard to write Jenny, because I was a huge Nick/Clauda shipper in S1. I really need to give it a go, just to see if I *can* write Jenny.

*g* Me and my nose for nice new fic!

Jenny's the one I haven't tried to write -- I don't 'hear' her and I never much warmed to the character. I like Claudia, though, and she plays a biggish part in a story I'm writing now.

I have another Jenny drabble in mind, so I'm going to give it a go and see what happens. But I totally gree about not 'hearing' her voice clearly, and I prefer Claudia so I find it difficult to write a character that I don't care about so much, or have much sympathy for.

I like the sound of your new fic.

Oh good, looking forward to the drabble!

Cross your appendages that the new fic works out. It's sort of planned, but hasn't gelled yet *g*.

Oh, very nice. Well done.

I miss Claudia (and Nick/Claudia) too...

/sniff/

Thanks. I was sad when I realised Claudia was never coming back, I loved the Nick/Claudia relationship.

I keep telling myself it's a show that deals in TIME so never say never.

Awwwww, very sad and sweet.

I miss Claudia too, but I have warmed to Jenny. I need to have a proper go at writing her I think, just to see if I can.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 14th, 2008 07:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. Claudia was kind of sweet and nice in ways that Jenny wasn't, and I just loved her approach to introducing herself to Nick in episode 1 - just walk right over and kiss him! She certainly got style points for that one.

I think Jenny may have started to grow on me by the end of S2, so I really should stop denying her existence and just write something with her in it.
telperion_15 From: telperion_15 Date: May 14th, 2008 07:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think I might enjoy writing her slightly sarcastic attitude - since that's the attitude I have myself!

She's going to be in the fic I'm wirting at the moment, but I'm not sure how much she's going to appear - she could be more of a sideline character. I'll have to wait and see...

Oh wow. Like... wow. Like this can sum up my fic (WiP at the moment.)

No matter what Nick feels for Jenny a part of him will always think of Claudia, always miss her.

Brilliant.

cool, thanks. Glad you liked it. Nick really is in a no-win situation. he doesn't want to see someone every day who reminds him of what he's lost, but he also doesn't want to forget. Poor Nick.

Lovely angsty sting in the tail. Loved it.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 14th, 2008 08:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. I know the challenge is meant to be Jenny, but this came out rather more Nick/Claudia than I'd thought it was when the idea was still in my head rather than on the page.

Aw poor Cutter. Very nice drabble :D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 14th, 2008 09:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks.

I've just written another one for this challenge, but got stuck with a query that I've posted on Primeval_ITV, so I probably won't post be able to post it until tomorrow at this rate. Plus the damn thing doesn't seem to want to be exactly 100 words, no matter how much I edit.

*shakes fist at unco-operative almost-drabble*

Oh, how poignant.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 14th, 2008 09:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. I haven't written any Nick/Claudia angst for a while, and it used to be my favourite ship when i first started writing in this fandom.

Awww, that is well sad, that is. Poor Nick!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 17th, 2008 07:03 am (UTC) (Link)
Poor Nick indeed. He doesn't have much luck in the romance department, does he? (not in S2, anyway).
reggietate From: reggietate Date: May 17th, 2008 09:55 am (UTC) (Link)
Not in S1, either, really, poor boy - just realises he may be in love with Claudia, or at least have the chance of it, and she ceases to exist. Not to mention Having his beloved Helen revealed as the Wife From Hell :-)

This is filled with angst and fits in with the way he was looking at Claudia's photo during the beginning of season 2.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 26th, 2009 07:24 am (UTC) (Link)
poor Nick. Losing Claudia was bad enough, but then having Jenny in his face afterwards must have been awful for him. No wonder he was angsty all of series 2.

Poor angsty Nick. Lovely drabblewith a sting in the tail.

I miss the sweet fun of the Nick/Claudia relationship, it was always more spiky with Jenny.
