Drabble: In the Spirit of Scientific Curiosity

Written for primeval100 challenge 331 - Magnetic

Title: In the Spirit of Scientific Curiosity
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Ryan, Connor
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Spoilers: vague for 1.2 and 1.3
Challenge: 331 – Magnetic
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.



The anomaly in the underground was still there two days later. The giant insects hadn’t come back, so Ryan’s guard duty mostly involved watching over the scientists at work.

Connor in particular was a whirlwind of geeky enthusiasm, chattering about magnetic anomalies to anyone within earshot, and repeatedly ‘testing’ the strength of the magnetic field. Ryan suspected it would be prudent to keep an eye on his weapons at all times, in case Connor ran out of metal objects.

Eventually Ryan gave in to his curiosity and interrupted with a question.

“Connor? Do you really have giant bug fridge magnets?”

LOL! Yes, he does!

So awesome how you used that little canon remark in this drabble.

Thanks! I think I may have played a bit fast and loose with canon, because I'm not sure Ryan was actually within earshot when Stephen made that comment to Claudia, but I just couldn't resist it. Let' just pretend Ryan was lurking nearby, eh? ;-)

LOL! Yes, definitely - and he'll show Ryan if Ryan plays his cards right :D

Hee, thanks! If anyone has them, it will be Connor!

*sporfles* Glad Ryan indulged his curiosity - it was a fun line and a fun visit to my favourite season ;)

Thanks! I have no idea why Stephen's comment about fridge magnets came to mind for this challenge, but once the idea was there it wouldn't go away!

LOL, that definitely sounds like Connor.

Cute!

Thanks! Poor Connor, he's so maligned... :-)

*chortle*

I bet he does! :-D

Hee, thanks! If anyone does, it will probably be Connor!

A fishing trip for an invite for coffee if ever I saw one *g*

LOL! Very good :D I'd forgotten all about that.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 12th, 2013 07:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
Lol! I knew you would squint at it for signs of slash! ;-)

Hee! I'm glad Ryan's focusing on the important questions!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 12th, 2013 07:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee, thanks. Yes, Ryan definitely has his priorities straight!

Nicely done and love Ryan asking the important questions (and keeping a firm hold on his weapons).
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 12th, 2013 07:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks! I suspect once he'd seen Connor sending an assortment of metal objects through the anomaly, Ryan would keep a *very* close eye on anything he didn't want to lose!

Good use of the prompt!

Thanks!

Who needs etchings when you have giant bug fridge magnets? And, yup, Ryan had better keep an eye on his weapons.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 22nd, 2013 09:41 am (UTC) (Link)
Lol! I'm sure Connor wouldn't throw any of Ryan's guns through an anomaly on purpose, but he might get a little enthusiastic and not really notice what he was doing until it was too late!

Cute!

Thanks! Although I think you may have got a bit carried away on your commenting spree, as you have already commented on this one... :-)
