fanfic: R2D2 - athene
fanfic: R2D2
Okay, second attempt to post this after fluffing the first one so completely that I had to delete it. This is my first entry for the Primeval_100 community. 

Title: R2D2
Author: Athene
Word count: 100
Rating: PG
Characters: Connor
Challenge: Star Wars
Author notes: set during the later half of episode 6
Disclaimer: not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them


          After the adrenaline had worn off, the R2D2 comment started to hurt. Cutter thought of him as an annoying, noisy little droid that was always in the way?

But then, Connor realised, R2D2 was actually pretty smart. He always knew what was going on, came up with the information when the team needed it, provided the technical backup. He was trusted. He was…

            Connor stopped in mid thought. Why was he comparing himself to a fictional character?

            It was only when Cutter caught his eye with a knowing smile later, that Connor suspected it had been a compliment after all.

Lovely little drabble! I'm glad your post finally worked! I've been racking my brains for this challenge, but I still completely stumped for a viable idea :)

Thanks. It took me ages to come up with this idea, and even longer to then get it down to 100 words.

Aw, that's a lovely drabble.

And you did the tags absolutely right. I'll make you an author tag so next drabble you'll be able to add that too. :D

Cool, thanks.

I made a horrible mess of posting it to my journal the first time, and was a bit paranoid I'd get it wrong when I posted the link to the community. Nice to know I managed to defeat my tag demons.

Heeheehee, love it! Although it was a bit of a back-handed compliment, wasn't it?!

And now you've reminded me that I haven't written anything for this challenge, despite having an idea. Must remember to do that sometime in the next 24 hours...

Thanks, glad you liked it.

I loved the R2D2 conversation in that episode, wish there had been more Cutter and Connor moments like that.

Prod, prod. Write your fic as well. I'd like to see what ideas you've had for this challenge. I'm surprised there weren't more entries for a prompt like Star Wars. Maybe everyone's on holiday.

either that or Cutter's saying "god, why can't you be fictional?" :D

cute drabble. nice Connor voice.

R2D2 was one of the best characters in Star Wars! Definitely a compliment :)

Running through the master fic lists of all my LJ friends and saw this.

Seems we both seized on Cutter's R2-D2 comment, huh? I like that it seems we all understand Cutter meant it as a compliment but Connor wasn't sure.

Good job! :-)

Heehee. Yeah, I think that moment with the R2D2 comment was one of the first times that you really felt like Cutter was trying to connect properly with Connor. It's a lovely, fun little moment.

That R2D2 comment annoyed me too but when you put it like this it makes so much more sense! Great drabble!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: May 24th, 2009 08:03 am (UTC) (Link)
thanks. I do like those moments when Cutter is amused by Connor and gently teases him with comments like that, because it's affectionate teasing, not nasty.

It was a little backhanded, but I think Cutter meant it as a compliment. *snorts* over Connor suddenly wondering why he's comparing himslef to a fictional character (g)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 21st, 2009 06:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
poor Connor, no one seemed to quite know what to make of him in series 1. I think Cutter had a good measure of him in that scene, though, even if it was a bit of a backhanded comment!

I thought the R2D2 comment was a bit harsh too but I like your explanation of it nice fic!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 14th, 2010 12:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
poor Connor is so often the butt of the jokes, but I think Cutter meant this one with affection really.
mulder200 From: mulder200 Date: June 2nd, 2010 01:21 am (UTC) (Link)
LOL! That is kind of a backhanded compliment but at least the smile makes it better.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 2nd, 2010 09:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
yep, poor Connor didn't really know what to make of that comment, did he?
