fanfic: Silence

Written for the Primeval100 'Alone' challenge.

Title: Silence
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Abby, Connor
Rating: PG
W
arnings: none
Spoilers: Post 2.7
Challenge: Alone
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.


            Connor doesn’t talk so much any more. Not about the things that actually matter. Hardly even about the things that don’t – the random, the day to day stuff of life.

            Abby understands why, she really does, but that doesn’t mean she has to like it. He’s getting far too good at hiding his pain. They both are. Abby hates it, but they don’t talk about that, either.

            At work they project the image of an efficient partnership. At work everyone thinks they’re both okay, because they still have each other.

            At home, even when they’re together, Abby feels like she’s alone.

Awwwwww... *sniffs*

Connor closing down is almost the worst thing, somehow, precisely because he was so exuberant and cheerful before. That's why him being upset in 2.04 was so awful!

*passes tissues*

My Connor!whumping muse seems to be in full swing lately. I keep thinking I shouldn't do so many bad things to him... but then, he's so pretty when he's broken.

Oh, that's really painful. Poor Abby. Poor Connor. Good drabble.

I can see them trying to pretend that everything's okay when they're at work, mostly for Nick's benefit, but then it's really not okay when they finally get home and don't have to pretend any more.

Oh dear. So tragic. Can't you just gouge out their eyes or something instead? LOL :)
Very, very good.

*giggle*

Connor!whumping is such fun. Does that make me a bad person?

It makes you a god.

No, no, not at all, please carry on.

*Sniff*. Perfect. But oh boy, this challenge has thrown up some depressing results!

I know. I wrote this one last night, and was then lying in bed thinking 'I really must write something for the challenge that is a happy, positive drabble that isn't post 2.7 angst'. I have an odea, but it's a bit vague at the moment. I'll see what I can manage before Tuesday.

I'm being quite evil to the two of them recently, aren't I?

poor things, they need to be there for each other, not shut down and pull apart.
