           “What should I do, Rex?”

            Rex landed on the sofa beside Connor. He chirped hopefully, and Connor offered him a wotsit.

            “How am I supposed to tell Abby how I feel? Saying it once was bad enough.”


            Connor absently handed him another wotsit.

            “What if she says, ‘that’s nice, but I just want to be friends’? After that it’ll all get weird.”


            “What would you do?”

            Rex nudged his hand away and started enthusiastically licking the inside of the packet.

            Connor sighed.

            “Thanks mate. But I don’t think the way to Abby’s heart involves a bag of cheesy wotsits.”

They are. They're the cutest partners in crime ever.

*has a sudden craving for wotsits*

Too cute. And you know if Rex could talk he'd so be saying "just go and talk to her, you idiot!"

Connor and Rex are adorable together. Although I'm becoming vaguely worried about the number of drabbles that I seem to have done featuring the two of them.

"if Rex could talk he'd so be saying "just go and talk to her, you idiot!""

He so would. And if he had hands big enough he'd bash Connor and Abby's heads together and say, "will you two just get on with it and snog already!"

Lol, Rex the sidekick and confidant offering his advice.

I was going to say something about a new Connor/Rex tag, but on second thoughts I won't go there ... *g*

Rex has a lot to put up with from his human housemates.

And your suggested tag just gave me a very scary visual place that will probably haunt me all morning!

awwww....but is Connor sure Rex isn't correct? ;)

Well apparently the 'mortal peril desperate declaration of love' approach hasn't worked, so Connor clearly needs to try something else. Maybe the way to Abby's heart *is* through her stomach - just not necessarily with cheesy wotsits!

Aw, they're so cute together.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 8th, 2008 09:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
They are. And since you posted this challenge it's like there's been an explosion of cute on the Primeval100 community. For the record, I'm really enjoying this challenge and all the Connor-fic it's producing. Thanks.

There has! I think everyone just wants to *squish* Connor :D

Aw, I can just imagine Connor feeding Rex wotsits and I also imagine that Abby wouldn't be too pleased with Connor for giving him them.

This was really cute. Loved it! ;D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 9th, 2008 05:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. I'm sure Connor feeds Rex lots of things that Abby wouldn't be happy about. They're a bad influence on each other.

I have a craving for Wotsits now :P
Those two are sooo cute together! I'm try to get my mum to buy me a new lizard :D
You must write more of them!!!!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 9th, 2008 05:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think I gave myself a craving for wotsits while I was writing it! If you want to read more Connor and Rex antics, in a shameless bid to pimp my own stuff I have a master list here:


which has links to all my other drabbles, quite a lot of which feature Connor, and quite frequently Rex as well. 'Evidence' and 'High' are the first two I can think of right now that feature them both. Thanks for commenting.

Awww cute Connor and Rex. Love how Connor has Rex as a confidant and advisor!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 22nd, 2009 08:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
I love the episodes where Connor talks to Rex as if he's just another person and as if Rex actually understands him. The two of them are ridiculously easy to write fun drabbles about, for some reason.

Awww this is really cute, I can see Connor having this conversation with Rex!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 13th, 2010 11:02 am (UTC) (Link)
thanks, I love those conversations Connor has with Rex on the show, they're just so cute and funny together.
