Title: Adrenaline Rush

Author: Athene

Fandom: Primeval

Characters: Connor, Claudia, Ryan

Rating: PG

Warnings: none

Challenge: Past challenge 44: Connor Temple

Word count: 100

Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them
AN: As if I didn't write enough for this challange the first time round...

 

            It was barely dawn, and Connor was already running for his life. In front of him was Claudia. Behind him was a creature that wanted to eat them both.

Business as usual, really.

            “Deinonychus… Cretaceous… intelligent… pack hunter,” he explained between gasps for air as they raced through the woods. “We’re lucky… there’s only… one of them.”

            Abruptly, Ryan appeared out of nowhere.

            “Duck,” Ryan ordered.

            Connor tackled Claudia to the ground, rather heroically protecting her body with his own, he thought.

            When the gunfire finally stopped, Connor glanced at Claudia. He couldn’t stop grinning.

            “Cool!”

            Claudia just glared at him.

LOL, you could have double-tagged this one with This is where you duck, challenge 16, as well.

I can understand why Claudia glared, lol.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 2nd, 2008 12:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
True. I think my other one could have been double tagged as well, with the 'lost' challenge. Never mind.

Poor Claudia, she doesn't like doing the action stuff, does she?

lukadreaming From: lukadreaming Date: August 2nd, 2008 12:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
LOL! I like Connor thinking he's been brave *g*. Poor Claudia!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 2nd, 2008 12:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
Poor Claudia indeed. You have to wonder what she was doing to be in that situation in the first place, though.
lukadreaming From: lukadreaming Date: August 2nd, 2008 12:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think those situations follow Claudia around! I was re-watching the ep where she's dive-bombed on top of the office block *g*.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 2nd, 2008 12:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
LOL. And Connor is just a magnet for danger as well, anyway, so if she was hanging around with him (for some inexplicable reason!) they were *bound* to be chased by something sooner or later.

I adore the bit where she lays the law down to Nick and Stephen, then promptly gets knocked out by the thing's beak :-)
lukadreaming From: lukadreaming Date: August 2nd, 2008 01:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
Love that bit! And when Stephen takes his shirt off *vbg*.
reggietate From: reggietate Date: August 2nd, 2008 01:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
Not to mention Nick casually demanding Claudia should take her shirt off! He's just so utterly oblivious to the fact that she might just not feel too happy about that!
lukadreaming From: lukadreaming Date: August 2nd, 2008 01:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's a great scene all round, that one. Oh, and then there's Ryan and the boys in the lift, which always makes me laugh.
reggietate From: reggietate Date: August 2nd, 2008 02:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
This ep is one of my favourites. Must watch it again, as it features (the events, anyway) in the next part of The Secret, which I'm trying to write, among several other things :-)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 2nd, 2008 02:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
That ep is one of my favourites as well. Mainly because of the Nick/Claudia shipper aspects of it, but also because it's just outright fun.

Oooh, more fic on the way from you?
reggietate From: reggietate Date: August 2nd, 2008 03:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, I like the Nick/Claudia stuff in it, too, esp. where he's trying to reassure Claudia by playing doctor :-)

Oooh, more fic on the way from you?

Hope so. I'm working on some now, but I keep getting distracted by icon-making. Just done a nice Claudia, in fact.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 2nd, 2008 01:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
I love the fact that Stephen seems to wait *just long enough* to see if Claudia really will take her shirt off, before he 'remembers' that he is also wearing something red. Stephen has a wicked sense of humour sometimes.

Oh, totally!

The expression on his face is priceless! 'Shall I let her do it? Yes? No? Oh okay, better do the chivalrous thing then...' *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 2nd, 2008 02:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
Nick's in a win-win situation, really. Either way he gets to see someone he likes take their top off!
reggietate From: reggietate Date: August 2nd, 2008 03:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
And he gets his wish later, anyway :-)

Says it all :-)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 2nd, 2008 01:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
I love those kind of moments from the show, where people end up randomly getting chased by creatures, using imporovised weapons where necessary, and having random heroics.
reggietate From: reggietate Date: August 2nd, 2008 02:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
Me too. The improvised weapons are far more interesting and fun than guns.
telperion_15 From: telperion_15 Date: August 2nd, 2008 02:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee! That's such a Connor reaction!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 2nd, 2008 02:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
It is, isn't it? He's such an adrenaline junkie. *pets Connor and hopes he comes down from the adrenaline high before Claudia gets too angry*
bigtitch From: bigtitch Date: August 2nd, 2008 03:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh this is *so* Connor - and Claudia for that matter!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 2nd, 2008 04:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
Connor is worryingly excitable about these sorts of situations. Someone needs to cram a bit of survival instinct into him occasionally. Poor Claudia probably wasn't impressed, though.
joereaves From: joereaves Date: August 2nd, 2008 04:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Lol this is brilliant.

Connor may be in more trouble from Claudia than the dino though.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 2nd, 2008 04:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
Connor may be in more trouble from Claudia than the dino though.

That's entirely likely, especially if he got mud on her clothes with that 'heroic' tackling.

bwah!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 2nd, 2008 04:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's nice to know Connor enjoys his work. Claudia probably just wishes he wouldn't enjoys it *quite* that much.

Hee! Perfect Connor :D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 3rd, 2008 09:08 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. He just seems to attract that kind of situation.
fififolle From: fififolle Date: August 4th, 2008 11:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ahahaha! What a star, Connor *g* He's awesome. Well done, that young man. I loved this. Poor Claudia, and Ryan the hero *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 5th, 2008 07:15 am (UTC) (Link)
Heehee, thanks. I love Connor when he's doing this kind of thing. Like in 2.1 where he gets chased by the raptor, and then complains about the brain freeze from the slushy! He's wonderfully easy to get into random chased-by-creature type situations (from which Ryan can then rescue him and be all heroic *grin*).
fififolle From: fififolle Date: August 5th, 2008 05:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
Perfect plot, I say. :D
knitekat From: knitekat Date: July 31st, 2009 09:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
Lovely fic and typical Connor listing what he knows of the creature chasing him! Though I don't think Claudia's impressed!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 2nd, 2009 11:20 am (UTC) (Link)
Typical Connor - he still thinks they're cool, even when they're trying to eat him!
