Drabble: Connor's Best Nights Ever


Written for primeval100 challenge 253 - Best Night Ever.

I know I had something of a ramble on the subject of drabble series recently, but I'm *fairly* sure each of these could be read alone, but they also make a story greater than the sum of its parts.

Characters: Connor/Abby, Cutter, OCs
Rating: 15
Warnings: Implied smut
Spoilers: 4.1
Challenge: 253 – Best Night Ever

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




Connor’s Best Night Ever - 2006

“We’re just off for a few drinks. Want to come, Connor?”

“Don’t bother asking, he doesn’t even drink,” Adam interrupted before Connor could reply.

Connor heard the door slam shut, and the sound of his housemates’ laughter disappeared along the street. He couldn’t help wondering what might happen if he said yes. If he went out getting pissed every weekend like other students.

But hey, he didn’t need alcohol to have fun. He had pizza, popcorn, and all the Star Wars DVDs to keep him company.

As far as he was concerned, that was pretty much the best night ever.



Connor’s Best Night Ever – 2007

Cutter sat down next to him on the park bench, but his attention was directed at the sparkling anomaly in the middle of the picnic area.

“Triceratops was my favourite when I was little,” Connor said.

“Bet you never thought you’d end up being chased by one?”

Connor just laughed.

“You did well today,” Cutter said quietly. “Smart thinking.”

Connor knew he was grinning like an idiot, but he didn’t care. This was his life now. Dinosaurs and people who really wanted him around.

He might be sat outside in the freezing cold, but this was the best night ever.



Connor’s Best Night Ever – 2011

“Wow.”

Abby chuckled, and continued to trace random patterns on his chest with her fingers.

Connor wriggled, enjoying the softness of the sheets that cocooned them (and god, didn’t that feel absolutely wonderful after a year of sleeping on the ground?).

“Wow,” he said again, his brain still coasting on the post-orgasmic high.

Abby’s forehead suddenly creased. “Connor? You have... that wasn’t your first time, was it?”

“Um...”

Abby smiled and leaned over and captured his lips for another kiss.

“You were great, Connor. Want to make it a second time as well?”

This was officially his best night ever.



Connor’s Best Night Ever – 2013

Becker chased the triceratops down the street and back to the Cretaceous, and then Matt closed the anomaly down as the crowd cheered. Connor smiled at their action-man antics as the news report ended.

“Typical Becker,” Abby murmured. She rolled her eyes and snuggled closer.

Connor wished he could have been there today – triceratops, after all – and to see the successful debut of his own latest anomaly-related invention, but he was on leave for a reason.

He looked down at baby Katie, asleep in his arms, and Connor’s smile got bigger.

This was... it didn’t get much better than this.

So very Connor - and the Cutter one may have brought a tear to my eye!

Aww *sends tissues* I was thinking of maybe a couple more drabbles with him bonding with Danny or Becker, but in the end I think these four say what I wanted to say about the people (and the things) he loves the most.

Aw, that was absolutely wonderful! And I am so happy he has a new family to add to his new existing one. xxx

hee, thanks. He deserves a happy ending after everything he's been through.

Awwwwwwwww, how very snuggly and adorable!

Yep, that's pretty much what I was going for. And I had actually already written the last one before we had that conversation about baby!fic on Denial this morning :-)

Oh, those are just gorgeous! Love the way each one just gets better.

(And triceratops - there should be more triceratops. Or any, actually. Maybe New World.)

Thanks. Connor has certainly come a long way from the geeky student in episode 1, and he deserves his happy ending.

There should *definitely* be more triceratops. It's my second favourite dinosaur (after deinonychus, of course!)

Awwww. Lovely.

Thanks. And apparently I *can* still write drabbles about people who aren't Jess and Becker!

Awww. This little progression was just spot on perfect. I loved all four of them. Please please write more Connor and Abby? It's always so fantastic coming from you, :-D

aw, thanks *looks embarassed*. I seem to have drifted away from Connor/Abby fic now, but I do still love writing drabbles about them.

How wonderful! This was a fantastic progression. He really grew up over the series didn't he? From boy to father. Amazing. And you captured each step so beautifully and made me smile with each one. Your Conby is so lovely.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 11th, 2012 09:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks, glad you enjoyed them. Yes, he went through so much and really did grow up over the series. He definitely deserved his happy ending.

These were lovely :)

*iz amused by the drabble series after that chat*

But yes, they do work both alone and together :)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 12th, 2012 09:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee, thanks.

Yes, I did feel a little guilty about doing this after airing my views about drabble series the other week. But I stand by my point of view that as long as each individual one can be read independently and still make sense then it's okay :-)

Great sequence! I love the progression!
