AN: Takes place while Connor and Ryan are missing in the 5D/3Y series. 

 

Abby stared at yet another anomaly that hadn’t brought Connor home.

            Another hope dashed.

            “They’ll be okay.” Corporal Barclay smiled encouragingly.

            “Do you really believe that?”

            “The captain will look after Connor. Besides, who better to survive the Jurassic than an experienced soldier and a dinosaur expert?”

            “Yeah. Connor’s probably driving Ryan crazy talking about the dinosaurs.” Her smile felt fake, though.

            It’s the Jurassic, she thought. They’re lost in the Jurassic.

Barclay reached out and squeezed her hand. The gesture was quick, easy to ignore if she wanted to. But she didn’t want to.

Abby squeezed back, and continued to hope.

Oh, cute! Sweet with that sad undertone.

Abby and Barclay definitely have a 'cute' sort of feel to them.

I like these two together. Lovely snippet.

This was kind of a precursor to the new Connor/Ryan stuff I'm working on. There will be more from Abby and Barclay, they're cute together.

Nice :-) And good for comforting Josh, keeping Abby's hope alive.

Awwwwww, so sweet. It's always hard being the one doing the waiting and hoping.

Poor Abby, she missed Connor while he was MIA. But she has Josh looking out for her now.

This is lovely - and I'm glad it looks like it's setting something up for the future!

I just thought it was a good opportunity to see the story from the other point of view. It is kind of setting things up, it'll just be while until anything gets resolved.

Aw! Dies of cute! How did I miss this? And why didn't you poke me, LOL! The fake smile was all heart-breaky. Yay for Josh. Aw!!!!!!

I though about poking you, but figured if you'd been away for the weekend you'd be slowly working through your f-list and would find it eventually.

Josh is sweet, and he should be appearing in more fic soon. I just need to find the time to write it *sulk*
fififolle From: fififolle Date: August 5th, 2008 05:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
Heh, you're right! And I did!
Josh is brilliant.
Nope, never enough time for all the bunnies :)

Aww this is cute and sweet, good of Barclay to keep Abby's hope alive.

Josh is cute, I really should write more of the follow on series, as that has a fair bit more of Josh and all the 3Y-verse OCs.

Cute! I liked Barclay :) Nice to see a little bit more.

Thanks, I rather like Barclay myself, he's sweet!
