fanfic: The End

This is munchkinofdoom</lj> 's fault. She wondered how many character deaths it was possible to get into only a hundred words. I took this as a challenge.


Title: The End
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Connor, Abby, Cutter, Stephen, Jenny, Lester
Rating: 12             
Warnings: multiple character deaths.
Spoilers: none
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.


 

The T-Rex swallowed Cutter down in one gulp, its foot crushing what little was left of Stephen.

The sound of gunfire petered off as one by one the soldiers fell to the swarm of raptors. Jenny and Lester had sought safety in a car, but the creatures were making short work of that. They heard windows breaking and a scream abruptly silenced.

Back to back, armed only with a tranq pistol and a two-by-four, Connor and Abby knew this was it.

Abby squeezed his hand.  

“We go down fighting, right?”   

Connor nodded. “I call dibs on the T-Rex.”

They charged.

It's NEVER safe to issue a challenge in Denial, is it? *grins*

Elegantly done!

You know what we're like with throwaway comments like that. Munchkin should have known better!
munchkinofdoom From: munchkinofdoom Date: January 4th, 2009 01:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, but I got fic out of it!!! *g*

Fantastic :) I make the death toll eight or twelve at most ;) Is it the Denialist in me that thinks that Connor and Abby aren't actually dead yet? *g*

It's the ending of Angel really isn't it?

Not quite the ending of B7 or we'd all be carefully counting bangs...

It's the ending of Angel really isn't it?

Yes, it is. Sorry.

I thought it fitted these guys just as well.

I didn't mean it as a criticism - after all where would we be if we could never re-use a basic idea or theme?
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 4th, 2009 01:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
True, but I did blatantly nick Angel's closing line and give it to Connor slightly paraphrased, so it was rather more blatant re-using of ideas than normal.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 4th, 2009 01:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
technically speaking we haven't seen the bodies...
lsellersfic From: lsellersfic Date: January 4th, 2009 01:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
I want to see how many I can kill in 100 words now...
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 4th, 2009 01:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
heehee! I can see this being a theme for the rest of the day now.
munchkinofdoom From: munchkinofdoom Date: January 4th, 2009 01:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, please!
lsellersfic From: lsellersfic Date: January 4th, 2009 06:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
Your wish is my command.
madscribbles From: madscribbles Date: January 4th, 2009 01:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oooh ouch! That's diabolical... and brilliant!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 4th, 2009 01:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee! It's Munchkin's fault for putting ideas in my head.

*laughs*

You have to love a Sunday Chat that spawns apocalypse fic and mpreg in the same thread!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 4th, 2009 02:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, it could only happen on Denial, and usually only on a Sunday!
telperion_15 From: telperion_15 Date: January 4th, 2009 02:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
Less death, more fluffiness, please! *g*

But I still love Abby and Connor's heroics!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 4th, 2009 02:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
If Connor dies you just know it's going to be doing something insanely heroic. Same for Abby really.

I'll see what fluffiness the bunnies have got today.

Stupendous! And a bit like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, cos you don't know for certain if they've copped it :-)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 4th, 2009 03:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
I absolutuely love heroic-last-stand type things, whether in books or films or as the finale to a tv series. And if it's done well enough I'm usually crying and cheering at the same time all the way through it!
lukadreaming From: lukadreaming Date: January 4th, 2009 05:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
Double OMFG! MPREG and now team death -- can't leave you lot alone for ten minutes *g*.

Very, um, neatly done!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 4th, 2009 06:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
can't leave you lot alone for ten minutes *g*.

Nope. The Sunday discussion in Denial has a lot to answer for today.
cordeliadelayne From: cordeliadelayne Date: January 4th, 2009 07:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, I'm impressed. Very neatly done :D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 4th, 2009 09:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. There was a challenge, so I had a go. The Sunday discussion has been very productive for instant fic challenges today.
knitekat From: knitekat Date: August 2nd, 2009 09:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
That is a lot of deaths! And Connor being insanely brave taking on the T-rex!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 3rd, 2009 07:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee, this one was such fun to write. Heroic last stands ftw!
