fanfic: Motives

Written for the Primeval100 challenge: Kisses

Title: Motives

Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Abby, Connor/Caroline, (Abby/Connor implied)
Rating: PG            
Warnings: none
Spoilers: general series 2
Challenge: Kisses
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.


           Abby watches as Caroline deliberately avoids Connor’s kisses. She sees how Caroline never initiates any kissing or touching, despite her almost overwhelming possessiveness.

            Connor, of course, is oblivious. He’s too wrapped up in the excitement and novelty of ‘Hey! Wow! Girlfriend!’

            Abby wonders about Caroline’s motives. If she isn’t interested in physical intimacy, why is she so relentlessly clingy? What does she see in Connor? What does she get out of the relationship?

            Connor’s motives, of course, are obvious.

            Abby is very careful to avoid thinking about her own motives, and why she spends so much time watching, and wondering.

Excellent :-) I'm sure Abby did a lot of wondering like that.

Connor, of course, is oblivious. He’s too wrapped up in the excitement and novelty of ‘Hey! Wow! Girlfriend!’

*Splorfle!* Spot on! That's exactly how he was the whole time.

You were quick off the mark!

Connor was just so wide-eyed and bouncy and completely oblivious to the fact that there was anything wrong with the relationship. I kept wanting to slap him and say 'Wake up!' for most of series 2.

Wow - that's the 3-some in 100 words.
Perfect.

Cool, thanks. I suppose it does sum them up, doesn't it?

I love sharp, observational drabbles like this. The Connor being oblivious bit is brilliant!

Connor is just so completely oblivious to everything except cool dinosaurs. It's a wonder the poor lad ever notices anything. Abby, on the other hand, notices *everything*.

I think that's why Abby/Connor make such a good team - she needs more awe and enthusiasm, and he needs more common sense. Together they balance each other perfectly.

‘Hey! Wow! Girlfriend!’

*sporfles*

Great drabble - tells you something important about all three characters involved.

I had to get a quick second opinion from Luka before I posted this, because I was worried that Abby might come across as being too cynical or bitchy. But Connor is just adorably oblivious *not sure whether to pet Connor, or slap him for being an idiot*

tells you something important about all three characters involved.

Oooh, thanks. That's a great comment.

Connor/Caroline! Connor/Abby!

thank you!!!

Thanks. You're welcome!

>If she isn’t interested in physical intimacy, why is she so relentlessly clingy?
emotional/spiritual closeness?
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 18th, 2008 07:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
Abby wouldn't think of that, certainly not where Connor is concerned. She probably doesn't thnk he has enough depths for that kind of relationship. She'd probably be wrong to think that, but Abby just doesn't see Connor as that kind of person so it makes sense that she wouldn't think that of his relationship with Caroline

Hee! The last line is just genius. :D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 18th, 2008 09:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Glad you liked. Abby/Connor just seems to be one of those pairings that I can do something with in 100 words, they don't have to be complicated because ther relationship is just right there in front of you. Does that make sense?
mysteriousaliwz From: mysteriousaliwz Date: September 18th, 2008 09:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
Spot on. You've absolutely got all three of them. :)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 18th, 2008 10:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
Cool, thanks. Given my tendency for writing Connor/Abby, I'm actually surprised it's taken this long for Caroline to turn up in one of my fics.

Hey sweetie!

I only vaguely know about Caroline but this fits what I do know. Very nice. Though it does make me fear that I'm going to be yelling at Connor a lot this season. *veg*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 19th, 2008 08:12 am (UTC) (Link)
Ooops! There aren't any specific episode spoilers there, but that's just a general feel for what the whole Abby/Connor/Caroline triangle is like for most of series 2.

it does make me fear that I'm going to be yelling at Connor a lot this season

He's my favourite character, and I can usually forgive him quite a lot, but even *I* was yelling at him for most of the series.

Spot on drabble. You do have to wonder what Abby made of the whole situation.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 19th, 2008 08:16 am (UTC) (Link)
Yes, poor Abby didn't really didn't like it when Caroline came along and intruded on Abby and Connor's team dynamic.

I had originally been intending to do a Nick/Claudia for this challenge, but you pretty much nailed exactly what I was going to do with your drabble the other day, so I did this instead.

Excellent drabble! Love Connor's thoughts.

A spot on look at the three of them. And hee to Connor's thoughts *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 20th, 2008 07:54 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. Those three are a lovely little group dynamic to play with.

This is really good!!!

thanks.

Poor Connor, totally unaware he was being set up. I'm sure Abby did a lot of thinking or avoiding thinking (g)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 2nd, 2009 12:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
Poor Connor, he was so happy and excitable about the whole thing, so oblivious to the fact that she was faking.
fififolle From: fififolle Date: March 12th, 2010 07:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
A drabble with a fabulous twist :)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 13th, 2010 08:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee, poor Connor, stuck in the middle of those two women glaring at each other. I'd be quite scared if it were me...
