fanfic: Vigil - athene

fanfic: Vigil

This drabble is for Rodlox, who put in a request for Abby/Stephen, and who seems to be my only co-conspiritor in our small het-rebellion.

Title: Vigil

Author: Athene

Fandom: Primeval

Characters/pairing: Abby/Stephen

Rating: PG

Warnings: none

Spoilers: Episode 2

Challenge: Primeval 100 ‘Bed’ challenge

Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.

AN. Takes place towards the end of episode 2. 

            Abby was sitting at Stephen’s bedside. She hated feeling so useless, helpless. They said the anti-venom was working, but the convulsions were still happening with frightening regularity, and there was nothing she could do other than hold his hand and keep talking him through it, even though she had no idea if he could hear her voice.

            This really wasn’t normal for Abby. She was sensible, she didn’t have silly crushes. Added to the fact that she barely knew the man, she knew this was crazy.

            But she was also utterly certain that she wasn’t leaving his bedside until he woke up.

Aw, sweet! I like Abby.

Thanks. I don't normally go near this pairing, but Rodlox mentioned it the other day, and it kind of took up residence in my head and fitted nicely with the drabble challenge for the week.

It's such fun the wany random comments/conversations seem to be inspiring so much fic at the moment. I'm trying to write for each of the Primeval_100 challenges now but don't always seem to have a suitable idea.

Likewise, I always try to write something for the drabble challenges, but sometimes I just can't think of anything, or by the time I have an idea I don't have the time to write it before the challenge changes.

This is really nice, a very sweet insight into that whole situation.

Thanks. I'm a sucker for angst and hurt/comfort, so I was bound to end up writing somthing like this eventually.

further proof that two Absolute Certainties, even if opposing, don't always cancel each other out.

lovely drabble. thank you.

Glad you liked it. You prodded me in the direction of this pairing, and it's not normally one that I like, although this one seemed to work okay. Sorry it was only a drabble, but I'm not sure I could sustain writing this pair over a longer fic.
rodlox From: rodlox Date: October 7th, 2007 08:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
how could I not like it? (that was rhetorical - its terrific)

I have no objection to drabbles.
(if you sustained the pair over something the length of even one chapter, I might faint)

so, in return, what Rome or Primeval pairing would you like me to write?
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 8th, 2007 12:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oooh, I hadn't expected reciprocal fic. My fave pairing is Nick/Claudia, but if you don't fancy that one, how about Abby/Connor? I haven't seen any Abby/Connor for ages, and only remember reading one a long time ago that was particularly good.

> and who seems to be my only co-conspiritor in our small het-rebellion.
We shall be victorious!!

(ps: I'm the only co-conspirator *so far*)

Maybe we should try to rope in Telperion_15. I know there are hints of Nick/Stephen in her current epic, but there's also a very strong undertone of Nick/Claudia going on there.
rodlox From: rodlox Date: October 8th, 2007 04:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
agreed; after all, one must always start somewhere. :)
flareonfury From: flareonfury Date: February 28th, 2008 04:04 am (UTC) (Link)
LOVED it! I wish there was more Abby/Stephen fanfics out there...
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 28th, 2008 08:15 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. I'd forgotten about this little drabble, it's ages since I wrote it. You're right, there don't seem to be that many fics for this pairing, which is kind of surprising as it seemed an obvious one in series 1.
flareonfury From: flareonfury Date: February 28th, 2008 09:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
Your welcome! :D There isn't many fics for this pairing... and I was actually surprised because of the same reason as you are... I mean I knew I would find a lot of Abby/Connor and Nick/Claudia, but I thought there would be just as many Abby/Stephen... sadly I was wrong... I'm really disappointed about that and the fact that series 2 didn't expand on the crush they clearly both had on each other - instead they developed Connor's crush and the Abby/Connor pairing. :(

Much as I love Connor/Abby, it would have been nice to have seen where the Abby/Stephen relationship might have gone. Still, that's what fanfic is for, eh?

This is perfect! I really believe this is what she was thinking while she waited for Stephen to wake up!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 24th, 2009 08:10 am (UTC) (Link)
way back in series 1 the series seemed to experiment with trying different characters together to see who worked well with each other, and there were a lot of nice Abby/Stephen moments. It's not a pairing I ever really write because I'm too into Connor/Abby, but 1.2 seemed an obvious scenario for fic.

Awww. Love Abby here.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 22nd, 2009 08:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. This was pretty much my one and only attempt at Abby/Stephen, and that scene in 1.2 was just begging for missing scene thoughts and angst.
