Title: Tempting Fate

Author: Athene

Fandom: Primeval

Characters: Abby, Connor

Rating: PG

Warnings: none

Spoilers: none

Challenge: Primeval 100 T-Rex challenge

Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.


            By the time they find the anomaly, there is already a herd of triceratops in the field. They have been trying to coax the creatures to go back for nearly an hour, and Connor is still jabbering about ‘classic late Cretaceous dinosaurs’. Abby has stopped paying attention.

            “Why are they always so big and stubborn?” she eventually asks.

            “Could be worse,” Connor says with a grin. “We could have got a T-Rex.”

            There is suddenly a deafening, heart-stopping roar from the direction of the anomaly.

            “Connor,” she says carefully. “If that’s what I think it is, I’m going to kill you.”

He really should know better.

Poor boy! It could've been worse. It could've been a herd of T-Rexes. Always look on the bright side!!

They might be okay. With all those triceratops around it might eat them first to give the humans a fighting chance!

Unless the T-Rex gets him first. Which, considering it's Connor, is pretty likely! (Not that I want Connor to get eaten by a T-Rex, you understand!)

Considering the fic that's been around recently, statistical probability suggests Connor is, at the very least, going to get chased, even if it doesn't manage to eat him. *grin*

LOL. Connor's obviously never heard about tempting fate!

yep, he really should know better than to say things like that around anomalies, silly boy.

This is brilliant, I can really picture it happening on the show!

Thanks. Poor Connor, it always seems to be him who ends up with things like that happening.
