AN: written for lukadreaming with the prompt ‘large stick’.

 

           “What the hell were you thinking?” Stephen yelled.

            “I was trying to save people. In fact, I was saving people,” Connor snapped back. He was honestly bewildered. For all of thirty seconds he had felt like the hero of the hour – until Stephen had rounded on him and started shouting.

            “You were trying to fight off two raptors with nothing more than a large sick. It looked to me like you were trying to get yourself killed.”

            “So what was I supposed to do? Stand by and let them eat the innocent civilians while I waited for backup? Sod that!”

            “And what if backup hadn’t come? What if I hadn’t come to bail you out? Again!”

            “Fine. Next time don’t bother.”

Connor turned and stormed off, seething. It had been his moment. His chance to show them all that he could be a hero as well. But no, Stephen ‘everyone look at me I’m the tall dark and handsome hero’ Hart had to come along and steal his thunder, and then make him look like an idiot in front of everyone. It wasn’t bloody fair.  

            A hand caught his shoulder and Connor spun round, flailing an arm at him.

            “WHAT?”

            Stephen wordlessly pulled him into a hug that silenced any further thought of protest in Connor’s mind.

            “Next time, be more careful,” Stephen murmured as he finally let go.

            He quickly turned and walked away, leaving Connor to flap in confusion, and with a vague feeling of annoyance that Stephen had managed to get the last word again.

Ooh, verrry nice! I do like heroic and bewildered Connor *bg*.

Thank you!

poor Connor, it doesn't seem to be his day at all. Except for the hug, of course.

Awwwwwwwwwwww... *wibbles*

Although that's a great description of Stephen! *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 25th, 2010 09:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee! I couldn't help that description of Stephen sneaking in there. I bet that's exactly the kind of thing that Connor would think of him, he just wouldn't say it out loud.

Oh Joy! I sure liked this! And too funny, and sweet at the same time. I miss it when Stephen wasn't an unsufferable prig. Mean writers... (and luka's icon! The WTF? is your hand doing on me moment! Very fitting)

Thanks, glad you liked. I have to admit Stephen isn't one of my fave characters, but he did have some lovely moments with Connor, especially in series 1, and I liked their almost brotherly type relationship.

Aw! Poor Connor. I feel for him. xP

Nicely done. ^^

thanks. It's not his day, bless him *pets Connor*

hee! That seems to be a popular reaction to this one *grin*

Poor Connor, trying to do the heroic thing and he still gets into trouble. At least he got a hug, though.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 26th, 2010 06:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
Indeed, even if he was a tad confused by the hug!

This was fab, really liked the end.

thanks, glad you liked.

Ah! Stephen does care. And LOL at poor confused Conner.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 26th, 2010 06:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
Stephen has no room to talk, really, it's normally him who is the one running in and doing the heroics. No wonder Connor is confused by his reaction!
From: sallycandance Date: May 26th, 2010 03:54 am (UTC) (Link)
Teehee - looks like Connor is oblivious to someone else's feelings towards him *purrs*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 26th, 2010 06:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yep, Connor The Oblivious strikes again *grin*
jaynedoll From: jaynedoll Date: May 26th, 2010 08:11 am (UTC) (Link)
Poor bewildered Connor being all heroic but at least he got a hug off Stephen (although I imagine that will have confused him even more)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 26th, 2010 07:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
Connor and Stephen are as bad each other when it comes to spur of the moment heroics, although the hug was probably an unexpected (and very confusing) bonus.
fredbassett From: fredbassett Date: May 26th, 2010 08:31 am (UTC) (Link)
Nice to know Stephen cares, even if it did confuse Connor! I loved their relationship in S1, and I'll always like Connor for the way he tried to stand up for Stephen in S2.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 26th, 2010 07:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
they did have a lovely brotherly relationship in series 1, although I think Stephen enjoys deliberately leaving Connor feeling confused *grin*
prehistoriccat From: prehistoriccat Date: May 26th, 2010 06:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yay for hero Connor and boo for Stephen making him all confused *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 26th, 2010 07:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee, thanks. Sulky hero Connor is cute, and I think Stephen does care really, he just also enjoys confusing the poor lad.
knitekat From: knitekat Date: May 26th, 2010 11:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
That is so the boys, and I love Connor's discription of Stephen.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 27th, 2010 06:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee, thanks. Stephen did rather give off 'tall dark and handsome hero' type vibes in series 1, and I bet Connor would totally pidgeon-hole the rest of the team into steroetype categories from films.

Aw, that was sweet! (Justifiably) petulant Connor is adorable, as is his reaction to Stephen's hug. Lovely!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 27th, 2010 06:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, I do like a bit of pouty petulant Connor, he's so cute when he's like that, and even more cute when he's confused.
