Connor never made a conscious decision to get drunk. If he had, he would have found a harder, faster way to oblivion than this.

            Unfortunately, wine is the only alcohol he can find in the flat, so he pours a glass and starts to drink.

            He drinks until he’s no longer sure whether the aim is to punish himself, or to make the pain stop. He’s not sure if the difference even matters.

            Lester finds him like this several hours later. His eyes hold unexpected understanding.

Connor doesn’t ask questions when Lester takes out a second glass and joins him.

Eek! Very sad. And Lester has a heart!

Lester does occasionally have a heart, he just hides it very well most of the time.

Poor Connor. *hugs him*

oops. I broke him again...

Gordon Bennett, Lester must be in a bad way... And poor Connor. An excellent take on the prompt.

It's meant to be not long after 3.3, so I think they're *all* still having a hard time.

Aw, man, that makes it even worse :(
*hugs them both*

*sobs* Connor! Lester! *huggles the boys*

series 3 was hard on all of them. Lester just hides it better.

Very sad.
*sniffles*
But I'm glad Lester was looking after Connor.

I still shy away from writing Lester, and I was adamant that I didn't want Connor/Lester, but a variety of people have now written angsty hurt/comfort type C/L, and I suspect I've been well and truly converted.

Aaaaw. That's so sad. Both men mourning Cutter.

thanks. They may still be hurting, but at least now they're not hurting alone.

*wibbles*

*huggles Connor*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 25th, 2009 06:13 am (UTC) (Link)
he probably needs a hug, poor boy. And some painkillers for the hangover the following day.

Aww, nice to see Lester showing him compassion. Your icon is a perfect match to this by-the-way. Lovely drabble :)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 25th, 2009 06:17 am (UTC) (Link)
The fact that Lester actually let him stay at his flat in S3 implies he does care just a little bit about his team. He just does his best to hide it, especially where Connor is concerned.

This icon gets a worrying amount of use when I write fic and drabbles... I enjoy breaking him far too much.

Hugs poor Connor, and Lester too.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 25th, 2009 06:18 am (UTC) (Link)
hugs are good, there should be more hugging. Can't have the hurt without the comfort.

Oh, eek. Good for Lester though.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 25th, 2009 07:10 am (UTC) (Link)
he does have a heart, honest!
slashybits From: slashybits Date: September 25th, 2009 01:36 am (UTC) (Link)
Awwww!

Great drabble!

*wants to cuddle them both*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 25th, 2009 07:11 am (UTC) (Link)
I think there seems to be a queue of people wanting to huggle them after this drabble!

*pets them* Great angst!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 25th, 2009 12:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. We like angst round here.
echo_fangirl From: echo_fangirl Date: September 25th, 2009 12:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
Aw :( *huggles them both*. At least they're not sad by themselves. :)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 25th, 2009 05:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
Indeed. And Lester will probably stop Connor from drinking so much he makes himself *really* ill.

Awwww poor Connor and Lester joining him was really sweet - nice fic!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 12th, 2009 07:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Lester does have a heart occasionally, and I think I've been reading far too many series 3 hurt/comfort fics with Lester and Connor recently. It's the only explanation why I've written it!
