drabble: The Right Thing?

Written for the Primeval100 drabble challenge 202 - Loyalty. Looks like there's been some degree of brainshare for this prompt already, but I decided to go ahead and write it anyway.


Title: The Right Thing?
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Connor, Philip
Rating: PG                 
Warnings: None
Spoilers: 4.7,  
Challenge: Loyalty 
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.

 

           “We’re doing the right thing, aren’t we?” Connor asked eventually.

            “Of course.”

Philip smiled, but Connor finally realised that it wasn’t real. Nothing more than a PR smile.

            Then why can’t we tell the others? He didn’t dare voice the question that yet again demanded attention. He didn’t want to examine the possibility that there was something very wrong here.

Besides, who would even listen to him now? He could imagine Abby’s ‘I told you so’ expression. Lester’s anger. Becker’s disappointment.

            Need to talk

            The text took seconds to type. Connor’s thumb hovered over the ‘send’ button for far longer.

Meep! Decisions, decisions.

With this prompt it's mainly Connor who's having loyalty problems this week, the poor boy.

Yes, the Connor-Philip thing seems to be very popular for this prompt. Poor Connor, prior to S4 he was undoubtedly one of the most loyal characters in the entire show, where did it all go wrong?!

The poor lad is definitely quite confused and conflicted about what is the right thing to do.

He does seem to have got himself in a bit of a fix.

I can see it all going horribly wrong for him in series 5. Meep!

Oh, poor gullible Connor. He make the right decision. *huggles him*

poor Connor is far too trusting, he just doesn't seem to see the bad in people until it's bashing him over the head. Much as we love his sweet innocence, it's going to get him into trouble!

*wibble* Press that button, Connor!

He really should! *tries to shake some sense into Connor*

Poor Connor -- I think he's so conflicted by this whole plotline . . .
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 19th, 2011 06:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
He's just too trusting, that's his problem.

Poor Connor ... and sadly I can see this is exactly the way its going to go for him in series 5 :(

You know, I'm half wondering if Burton's intentions are more money/greed driven rather than evil? we're all assuming he's evil, but I think he's just worked out how to make loads of money out of the anomalies and Connor, and doesn't want anyone else to steal the idea. I'm guessing Matt's the only one that knows what Burton and Connor's interference does to the world

Send it Connor! It's not going to get any easier when you're further in the shit!

true, the poor boy is just confused and conflicted what's the right thing to do.

Waiting won't make it any easier Connor! Poor boy...
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 20th, 2011 10:27 am (UTC) (Link)
It won't, but he knows he's going to feel like he's let everyone down when they find out.
ebonyfeather From: ebonyfeather Date: March 20th, 2011 12:06 am (UTC) (Link)
Press the button, Connor! He'll do what's right, I hope...
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 20th, 2011 10:28 am (UTC) (Link)
Fingers crossed he sees sense before it's too late.

Random aside - your icon is adorable!
