            “I will not have a panic attack. I will not have a panic attack.”

            Connor muttered the words over and over as he crawled through the dark, claustrophobically tight tunnel. Roots and things that he didn’t want to think about too hard brushed against his face. Connor closed his eyes and carried on.

He had to do this to save Stephen.

He wanted to do this to impress Cutter.

            He suddenly realised he might enjoy doing this when he opened his eyes and caught sight of Captain Ryan’s arse wriggling along the tunnel just a few feet ahead of him.

hee, thanks. I'd been trying all week to write something for this challenge with Becker, or Becker/Jess, and coming up blank. Then suddenly tonight the Connor bunnies pounced.

And that last line sounded less wrong in my head... :-)

Hehehehe. I so totally <3 Connor.

lol, thanks. Looks like my Connor bunnies have not completely deserted me after all, despite a spirited attempted takeover by Captain Pretty.

Hee, that's so Connor.

Hee, thanks. Yeah, typical Connor, easily distracted, even from mortal peril!

Nice mental image!

And nice to see your Connor/Ryan bunnies nibbling. *g*

Mmmmm... yes, Ryan's arse in those nice black combats...

I'm still annoyed that we got all the main characters *except* Connor wearing the black combat gear in that ep!

Connor is ever the optimist, bless him.

Hee hee! Yep, that's some incentive! No room to bounce pound coins off it in a tunnel, though *bg*.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 29th, 2011 09:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm sure several people would quite happily follow Ryan's arse down a tunnel. Or anywhere else, for that matter!

*laughs* That last paragraph is just perfect!

lol, thanks.

Definitely compensations there!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 29th, 2011 09:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yep, that's an interesting incentive for Connor.
jaynedoll From: jaynedoll Date: June 29th, 2011 11:58 am (UTC) (Link)
That's probably why Captain Ryan insisted on leading the way he knew it would be an incentive for Connor *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 29th, 2011 09:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
lol, it's a plan with few obvious drawbacks.
nietie From: nietie Date: June 29th, 2011 12:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yep, enjoy it, Connor! Enjoy it to the fullest *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 29th, 2011 09:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm sure he intends to!
ebonyfeather From: ebonyfeather Date: June 29th, 2011 06:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ryan's arse? Now there's an incentive!

Great drabble.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 29th, 2011 09:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. As incentives go, I'm sure many people would follow Ryan down a tunnel for that view!
