Drabbles: Capable - parts 1 and 2

Two drabbles written for the Primeval 100 drabble challenge 218 - Jess Parker


Title: Capable part 1
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Lester
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Spoilers: None 
Challenge: Jess Parker 
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.

 

            Lester caught his gaze straying towards the ADD yet again, and briefly allowed himself to contemplate the empty chair where Jess Parker should have been.

            She had no business being trapped on the wrong side of an anomaly. Of all the bloody stupid...

            Lester shook his head. It wasn’t that he doubted her ability. In front of a computer, plugged into the comms system, Jess was the voice of sanity and control in situations that were usually completely insane, and frequently out of control.

            But surviving in the past?

            Lester could only hope that Becker had found her in time.

 

Title: Capable part 2
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Jess/Becker
Rating: PG                 
Warnings: None
Spoilers: None 
Challenge: Jess Parker 
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.

 

 

Jess gripped the EMD and stared out into the night, willing her heart to stop racing at the slightest sound. Beside her, Becker twitched, and she gently reached out and stroked his hair until he settled again.

 “We’re doing this together,” Jess had insisted.

Becker apparently didn’t think this applied to the night watch.

By day five he was almost too exhausted to argue when she prised the EMD out of his hands and ordered him to stop being a stubborn bastard and sleep, now.

She could handle a few hours in the dark, alone. She could.

She had to.

Yay for capable Jess!

yey indeed.

To say I wasn't sure if I liked Jess when we first met her in series 4, I seem to have written more drabbles for this prompt than any other so far all year!

Ooh these are very good. Very curious as to how they got there.

thanks. I have no idea how they got there! I just love 'trapped in the past' scenarios, and couldn't resist!

Great angst from different POV's.

thanks. It was only supposed to be one drabble about Jess and Becker, and then Lester muscled his way in as well!

BAMF!Jess is a BAMF. Loved these! :D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 13th, 2011 06:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
lol, thanks. I quite like the thought of action survival Jess (although I'm not sure Becker likes the thought of it - yet!)

Very nicely done :)

thanks, I appear to be having a Jess/Becker phase at the moment.

thanks, I just can't resist a good old 'trapped on the wrong side of an anomaly' scenario :-)

lol, thanks. I'm sure she's more than capable of handling both.

Oh god!! That's bloody adorable!! *cheers for Jess*
I love Lester being all worried, and Becker being all tough and heroic (and gorgoeus asleep) and Jess being strong and trying her best!
*flails with squeee*
More? *g* Full story? Go on, you know you want to!!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 14th, 2011 09:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
*pets sleepy!Becker* Hee, I rather liked the thought of them stuck together in the dark like that, and Becker being stubborn, and Jess being equally stubborn right back at him.

Aw, yay Jess! :D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 14th, 2011 10:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
Jess can definitely be cool, calm, and badass when the occasion calls for it.

Thanks! I'm sure they'll get home... eventually.
