Written for the Primeval 100 challenge - Fools Rush In

Title: Waiting
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Abby, Connor
Rating: PG            
Warnings: het
Spoilers: none
Challenge: Fools Rush In
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.
AN: Sequel to Fools and Heroes, because nobody would believe that I hadn't killed him.

 

    
            
Connor woke up five hours later in hospital. Abby tried to pretend she hadn’t been crying while she had been waiting for him.   

            “You’re an idiot, Connor Temple. Don’t you ever do that again.” Her glare might have worked better if he wasn’t half gone on painkillers, but he looked suitably chastised so she decided to let it go.

            Abby knew she should wait. Best not to confuse him with spontaneous affection while he was still recovering.  

            Oh, to hell with waiting and being sensible. Connor didn’t own the copyright on being foolish tonight.

            She leaned over and kissed him.

Yay! That's better :)

The poor lad deserves a snog after being so heroic!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 14th, 2009 10:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yep, he definitely deserves a reward after that. See, he wasn't dead.

Phew! That's much better, thank you!

Since no one would believe that he was safe, I decided I'd better prove it.

That's more like it!

*Cancels the mob*

There was a mob? Squeak!
lukadreaming From: lukadreaming Date: January 14th, 2009 10:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
There is *always* a mob *beg*.

And they're supplied with the best pitchforks and flaming torches money can buy! *veg*

Hee hee! We shall get a Queen's Award for Industry for our new enterprise *bg*.

Hee! Awesome :) 'spontaneous affection' LOL!
Loved it :)

Ahhhh, that's better.

He saved the day, *and* got the girl! Go Connor! Although Abby clearly saved him, so go Abby as well!

Awww! But you do realise this will only make him more likely to be brave and foolish, if he gets kissed as a reward ;-)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 15th, 2009 08:19 am (UTC) (Link)
I don't think anything would be able to stop Connor from being stupid/brave/heroic, so at least if what he did was more brave than it was stupid, he probably deserves at least *some* sort of reward.
cordeliadelayne From: cordeliadelayne Date: January 15th, 2009 12:11 am (UTC) (Link)
Awww! All better :D

And on a modly note - can you not warn for het or slash at the comm? I have clearly not been paying attention since I see you've been doing it for a while but I don't like the message it sends out that either is "wrong". Thanks, hon!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 15th, 2009 08:22 am (UTC) (Link)
oops, sorry. My bad. To be honest I'm not sure why I started doing that. I think I wanted to put whether it was gen/het/slash somewhere in the header info, and that was the only obvious place without adding yet another line to the already extensive header info. But I see your point.
cordeliadelayne From: cordeliadelayne Date: January 15th, 2009 09:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
No worries. And you know I won't mind if you cut down on the header info. As long as the title, character/pairing & rating is there, and any warning you might need, I won't get modly on you about what else you include *g*
telperion_15 From: telperion_15 Date: January 15th, 2009 08:18 am (UTC) (Link)
Awwwwwwww, brilliant!

You are now forgiven! *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 15th, 2009 08:23 am (UTC) (Link)
Yey for being forgiven. See, I can do happy endings where no one dies. Occasionally.
missyvortexdv From: missyvortexdv Date: January 15th, 2009 08:48 am (UTC) (Link)
:D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 15th, 2009 01:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
I take it this is the happy ending you wanted?
fredbassett From: fredbassett Date: January 15th, 2009 02:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yep, he definitely deserved that snog.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 15th, 2009 06:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
Snuggles of some variety should be compulsory after every near-death experience. Although, as Reggie points out, that's not exactly sending the right incentive messages to avoid dangerous situations in future.

YAY I knew I had missed something!
*bg* They are sooo cute :)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 15th, 2009 07:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
Heehee, I noticed you'd somehow found the first one but not the second. There seemed to be a mob starting to mill aorund, so I decided maybe I needed to add a fixit to the last one. Who can resist Connor when he's confused and half gone on painkillers?

Connor didn’t own the copyright on being foolish tonight.

I love that line. It's got great rhythm, and they both deserve a little foolishness. /g/
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: January 31st, 2009 08:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. Glad you liked this one.

Yay! Connor's OK. Aww for the kiss...
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 10th, 2009 06:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
there seemed t be an angry forming up after the previous drabble, so I wrote this to prove that I hadn't killed him! Glad you approve of the happy ending.
