couple of mini-ficlets - athene

couple of mini-ficlets
I wrote these as part of the drabble-tree over on Primeval_canon, and decided to re-post them on my lj. Neither is actually 100 words, so strictly speaking I suppose they're mini-ficlets rather than drabbles. One is fluff, the other... isn't. Really, it isn't.


Title: Memories
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Pairing/characters: Ryan/Connor
Rating: 15
Warnings: none
Spoilers: none
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.
Word count: approx 120
Summary: The morning after the night before.

 

Ryan had been lying awake watching his sleeping partner for at least an hour before there was any sign of movement. Connor rolled over, stopped when he encountered a solid body next to him, and woke with an adorably confused expression.

"Morning," Ryan said cheerfully.

Connor blinked blearily at him.

"Either I had far too much to drink last night, or this is a dream."

"Yes and no, in that order."

"Oh."

Ryan smiled. "You should get drunk more often. You get a lot more confident."

"So we...?"

Ryan nodded, and then paused. "You do remember what happened last night, don't you?"

Connor flushed red. "Well, you see, that's the other thing that tends to happen when I get drunk."



Title: Death of Innocence
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Pairing/characters: Cutter, Abby, Connor, soldier/cleaner
Rating: 18
Warnings: violence
Spoilers: 2.7 I suppose
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.
Word count: approx 125
Summary: There are some things that you can’t come back from.

 



The siege ends with a single gunshot.

Cutter races down the corridor and flings the door open, terrified of what he might see. Abby and Connor had been held hostage by one of the soldier/cleaner clones for five hours. The clone had cut off their video surveillance after two hours, but even in just that time there had been more violence than Cutter could ever imagine anyone wanting to inflict on his youngest assistants.

The clone lies dead in a rapidly spreading pool of blood. Abby is crouched near him, battered, bruised, her eyes wide.

But it's the look in Connor's eyes that really scares him. Connor, the one who is holding the gun.

Cutter wonders which man has really just died in this room.

Eek! The second one is really scary. First one is lovely!

Finally got round to replying after lj died last night. Glad the second one was suitably scary.

The first one is a lovely bit of fluff :-)

The second is a real killer, brilliantly done :-) Poor Connor...

I think the fluff and the angst balance each other out a bit. I have to admit the first one is mostly a re-hash of the Nick/Stephen one from last month, but I'm quite pleased with the way the second one turned out.

You...but...I...what...argh!

And that reaction applies to both ficlets!

Why are you going incoherent about the first one? *is confused*.

Awww. And eeep!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 16th, 2009 01:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
eep indeed.

Oh wow, that second one is beautifully dark. And the first one is adorable :)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 16th, 2009 01:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
I like dark, dark is good. Glad you liked them both.

Oooh... first one is lovely and huggy. Second one... *shivers*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 16th, 2009 01:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
huggly fic is good, but dark and nasty tends to pack more of a punch. Poor Connor, he's just so easily breakable.

Eep. I'll just focus on the cute Connor/Ryan, thank you :)

*la, la, la, puppies, babies, la, la*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 16th, 2009 01:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
You want Connor and Ryan to have puppies and babies?!? *that* sounds like the scariest fic ever!

*evil grin*

thanks, glad you liked. Bit of an extreme contrast between the two, but they both seem to have worked.
bigtitch From: bigtitch Date: February 16th, 2009 07:52 am (UTC) (Link)
Awwww for the first one - Connor's just adorable!
And eeeep! for the 2nd - poor Connor (and Abby).
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 16th, 2009 01:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yey for Connor and Ryan being adorable. Everyone just needs a hug, and probably some counseling, after the second.
rain_sleet_snow From: rain_sleet_snow Date: February 16th, 2009 09:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
The first one is absolutely lovely and fluffy and awww. :) But the second one- my God, the first few lines are scary enough, but the last bit is just killer. *huggles Connor* Poor thing.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 16th, 2009 09:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. I just can't resist writing Connor/Ryan fluff every now and then. But doing evil things to Connor is even more fun, and I liked the contrast between the fluff and the dark and nasty.

Awwwwwwww the second one is really touching. Poor Connor, being forced into that position. Love the first one - looks like Ryan will just have to organise a re-enactment.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 17th, 2009 08:16 am (UTC) (Link)
I suspect one of the few things that could push Connor that far would be someone threatening or hurting Abby. And I'm, sure Ryan can think of plenty of ways to jog his memory in the first one.

Ficlet 1)
Awww it made me go all gooey inside :D Especially Ryan waiting for Connor to wake up but thinking about confident!Connor... hmm very nice!

Ficlet 2)
*cuddles Connor and Abby close and pets them*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 17th, 2009 08:19 am (UTC) (Link)
yey for making you go gooey! But cuddles are definitely needed after the second one.
talliw From: talliw Date: February 17th, 2009 09:27 am (UTC) (Link)
Fantastic!
First a nice piece of fluff then a scary one.

The end sequence in the second fic is a killer.:)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 17th, 2009 01:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
cool, thanks. Glad you liked. I do like being evil to the poor lad sometimes.
knitekat From: knitekat Date: August 20th, 2009 09:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
Aww for the 1st one, I'm sure Ryan will remind him (g).
Eek and meep for the 2nd, poor Connor.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 20th, 2009 10:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm sure Ryan will be more than happy to remind him as many times as is necessary *grin*.
And then poor Connor got all broken again, didn't he? Bad me.
echo_fangirl From: echo_fangirl Date: June 12th, 2011 01:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
Aww and Eek, in that order. Especially big eek on the second one especially. Nick should definitely go and take the gun from him, then give Connor a hug. A hug is quite a necessity right now. *nods*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 12th, 2011 02:25 pm (UTC) (Link)
indeed, Connor always needs hugs, although someone probably needs to take the gun away first.

You appear to be randomly dipping into my fic masterlist... any particular reason? (not complaining, of course, I'm just being nosy and wondering what's prompted it)
