            It had been an off the cuff comment. Connor had never really expected to inherit Stephen’s i-pod when he died.

            After the funeral, Stephen’s music was his companion as he lay alone in his room staring at the ceiling, trying to deny the tears that threatened with every memory.

            Stephen’s taste in music was nothing like his own. It was all adrenaline dance beats and techno thumping. Loud. Vibrant. Music for living life on the edge.

            Eventually, Connor shut the i-pod away in a drawer and tried to pretend it was because he just didn’t like that type of music.

I could kiss you for this. Very touching. Very painful. Very sad. Just the way I like it. *hugs*

The i-pod conversation from series 1 was the first thing that came to mind when I saw this challenge. Glad you liked.

Waaaah! That was terrific (and goes rather nicely with my old fic The Legacy.

thanks, I'm really surprised no one else has done something with the i-pod conversation for this prompt. Maybe everyone's too busy admiring the view of the pyramids and had forgotten about it.

Could be :-)

*Howls*. Oh god, that's so painful! Awesome drabble.

thanks. Back to angsty business as usual after the last couple of fluffy drabbles from Little Miss Maim and Kill.

Very sad :( But beautifully done.

Poor Stephen, he may have seemed like he spent a lot of time irritated at Connor, but I think he cared about him really, and he has the kind of sense of humour that would remember a conversation like that.

*hugs Connor as well* Who is Connor going to get brotherly advice about his love life from now Stephen's gone?

Oh God. I remember that line. Top marks to you. *bursts into tears* This drabbles hurts :( So well done, obviously.

*passes tissues* There really was some great interaction between Connor and Stephen in 1.3, it's a shame that didn't seem to happen as much later in S1, or at all in series 2.

I know. I really loved all those moments. *sigh*
Mind you, I think your drabble poked me to post a last minute drabble there. It was on my mind all day ;) Stupid Steeleye Span ;)

*sobs uncontrollably*

I wanted more Stephen's death angst this series, dammit.

*passes box of tissues*

I know they neded to get on with the action and the new characters and everything, but a bit of occasional remembering and angst for those they've lost along the way might have been nice.

Ouch.. poor Connor.. *hugs him*

*huggles Connor as well* I miss those amusing little brotherly moments between Stephen and Connor.

there can always be more angst in fic. Lots and lots of angst.

*sniff* Fantastic bit of writing. It's an excellent snapshot Connor dealing with Stephen's loss.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: June 3rd, 2009 07:20 am (UTC) (Link)
thanks, glad you liked. It would have been nice to see more reaction to his death, but I expect the writers wanted to move on rather than have the character moping around for half of series 3.

Awwwww this is just heartbreaking :(

Connor is just so very breakable for the angsty stuff.
