drabble: Forever?
written for the Primeval 100 challenge 135 - Wishful Thinking

Title: Forever?
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Ryan/Connor
Rating: 12
Warnings: none
Spoilers: none
Challenge: Wishful Thinking
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.

Ryan lay on his side watching Connor as he slept. Ryan wanted to reach out and touch, but he needed to train himself out of that habit. It would only hurt more later.

Connor liked to talk about ‘forever’, but what the hell did he know? He was just a kid, and this was all an experiment for him. Sooner or later Connor would get bored, find someone his own age, maybe even someone with the same level of intellect. Ryan knew when that happened he would let Connor go.

But he wanted to believe it when Connor said ‘forever’.

Oh, but that's just *flails*

Poor Ryan! *huggles him* I'm sure Connor does mean it really!

I'm sure Connor *does* mean it, but Ryan doesn't want to get his hopes up.

This challenge has prompted so many Connor-unrequited-love-angst fics, I thought I'd do something different and reverse it.

*sniffs delicately* That was so bittersweet and just a little bit heartbreaking.

thanks, that's pretty much exactly what I was aiming for *evil grin*

*sniffs*

Silly Ryan, thinking silly things like that! He should believe it!

silly Ryan indeed. I'm sure Connor would thwap him round the head if he knew what Ryan was thinking.

*Sniffs like a laydee*

That's so sad and so gorgeous . . .

I love a bit of angst with the boys, and it makes a change from Connor being the one having the unrequited feelings.

*eyes all the sniffling* Maybe I should have left a box of tissues out with this one...

Waaaaaaaaaaaah! Nooooooooooooo!
I saw the title of this, and the tags, and I was almost afraid to click *meep*
I didn't expect this, though. It was adorable. Come on, Ryan, there's always a chance!! *huggles him*
Please write a sequel *g*
Fabulous drabble.

Poor Ryan, why on earth would he think that he wasn't good enough for Connor? I'm sure Connor would set him right on that if he knew what Ryan was thinking. *pets Ryan*
fififolle From: fififolle Date: December 6th, 2009 12:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
It doesn't matter what Connor says. Ryan still knows that they don't have good odds on 'forever', but if he keeps on using that as an excuse not to get too close, it will be a self-fulfilling disaster :(

Not that they are real or anything. *cough*

Awesome *veg*

You'd think Connor would have learnt not to be a heart-breaker :(
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: December 6th, 2009 01:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm sure Connor has no intention of breaking Ryan's heart, but Ryan seems to think otherwise, poor bloke.

Aw! *huggles poor Ryan*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: December 6th, 2009 01:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
Poor Ryan. There had been so many drabbles with Connor being the unrequited one for this prompt I wanted to do something different, and ended up with this.

Awwww. Poor Ryan.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: December 6th, 2009 01:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
He should have more faith in himself, and in Connor.
mysteriousaliwz From: mysteriousaliwz Date: December 6th, 2009 04:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
Aww, how heart-wrenching - poor Ryan.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: December 6th, 2009 06:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
it was rather mean to him, wasn't it?
auntypam From: auntypam Date: December 6th, 2009 11:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
Poor Ryan and his silly insecurities*HuggesRyan*:( Of course Connor will love him forever!:)

Oh and yes you are mean*VBG*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: December 8th, 2009 08:17 am (UTC) (Link)
But Ryan is another one who is rather pretty when he's hurt and angsty (not as pretty as Connor, admittedly). It was definitely his turn for the angst.
knitekat From: knitekat Date: December 7th, 2009 12:52 am (UTC) (Link)
*hugs poor insecure Ryan* Of course Connor means it.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: December 8th, 2009 08:18 am (UTC) (Link)
of course he does, Ryanjust doesn't want to let himself fall too hard for him in case it all goes wrong. Silly man.

Poor Ryan.

It makes a change from responses to my drabbles being 'poor Connor'. *evil grin*
