          Steam filled the bathroom as Connor stripped off layers of clothing and dumped them unceremoniously on the floor. Goodbye dirty hoody. Goodbye, blood-stained jeans. Definitely goodbye socks and boots.

            Connor stepped into the shower and let the hot water cascade over his body. He squeezed a generous amount of shower gel onto his hands and luxuriated in the sensation of being clean.

            Oh, god. Goodbye smell.

            Finally, goodbye to everything from the last year.  

He heard a sound behind him, and looked round to see Abby wrapped in a towel, still damp.

            “Hello, sexy,” Abby smiled.

            Okay, maybe not everything.

I was determined to do something none-angsty for this prompt, just to be different.

Yay!!!! At last we have our wet!naked!Connor scenario!!! Let's hope we get to see this eh! *a fangirl can dream can't she*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 23rd, 2010 10:05 am (UTC) (Link)
There should definitely be more wet!naked!Connor shower scenes. In fact, it should be compulsory in every episode!

For some reason I thought at the beginning that this was going to be angsty - then it turned into shower!fluff... *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 23rd, 2010 10:06 am (UTC) (Link)
Oooh, excellent. I wasn't deliberately trying to make it a twisty ending, so I'm not sure how you got to angst from Connor getting naked! But there should be more naked!Connor shower fluff

I'd imagine his first shower in I-can't-remember-how-many- millennia would be utter bliss :)
(And definitely goodbye socks!)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 23rd, 2010 10:11 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh yes. I can imagine both of them just standing in the shower until the water runs cold, just because they can. And the socks should probably be ritually burned, just in case!
knitekat From: knitekat Date: October 22nd, 2010 10:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee, this certainly bucks the trend! Nice almost shower smut scene.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 23rd, 2010 10:12 am (UTC) (Link)
thanks, there's been so much angst for this prompt I was determined to do something none-angsty.

Ah lovely... my favorite Connor is always a wet!steamy!Connor. :) And yes, a shower must be heaven after that.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 23rd, 2010 10:15 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm surprised there hasn't been more 'first shower after coming back from Cretaceous' fics from the Connor/Abby gang. Because wet!naked!Connor is *everyone's* favourite!
tay_21 From: tay_21 Date: October 23rd, 2010 04:44 am (UTC) (Link)
WooHoo!!!!!!! Now that's the kind of goodbye I like to read about. Excellent drabble. Highly enjoyable.

Plus... Connor in the shower. :-D You can never have enough Wet!Connor fic around.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 23rd, 2010 10:18 am (UTC) (Link)
Hee, I thought you might like this (even if it isn't all dark and angsty!). Maybe we should start a campaign for more wet!naked!Connor shower scenes?
bigtitch From: bigtitch Date: October 23rd, 2010 06:52 am (UTC) (Link)
That's lovely! Yes, hot water would be a must after a year in the past! And Abby of course!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 23rd, 2010 10:19 am (UTC) (Link)
hee, thanks. And yes, I bet he *really* enjoyed that shower.
evenstar_estel From: evenstar_estel Date: October 23rd, 2010 06:53 am (UTC) (Link)
That was so awesome! I can only imagine how great they're going to feel to finally have hot water and SOAP! *rawr* v. sexy too.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 23rd, 2010 10:22 am (UTC) (Link)
I bet they spend the first week having epic showers and long deep baths every day just because they can!
fififolle From: fififolle Date: October 23rd, 2010 08:00 am (UTC) (Link)
I was wondering how angsty it would be too, but this was yummy! :D Excellent!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 23rd, 2010 10:25 am (UTC) (Link)
LOL, not all of us feel the need to shatter Connor's heart and do an evil dance on the broken pieces for this prompt, you know!
fredbassett From: fredbassett Date: October 23rd, 2010 09:20 am (UTC) (Link)
That's lovely! (I was expecting angst, too, and that was a great take on the prompt.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 23rd, 2010 10:26 am (UTC) (Link)
I was determined to do a none-angsty one to be different after all the angsty drabbles this prompt had generated.
nietie From: nietie Date: October 23rd, 2010 01:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Brilliant! This is how it must feel like for them to take their first shower in ages. *g*
But I bet we won't see this scene in S4 :(
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 23rd, 2010 02:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee, thanks.

But I bet we won't see this scene in S4 :(

I know! *pout*. If we can have the Stephen swimming pool scene in series 1, why can't we have a wet!Connor shower scene? *sulks*

Aww! Let's hope!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 25th, 2010 06:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
yes, fingers crossed. Thanks.

Aw! That was adorable!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: October 27th, 2010 09:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee! I couldn't resist some non-angsty shower fluff for this prompt.
tay_21 From: tay_21 Date: March 27th, 2012 10:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
HEE! Sorry. Needed emergency fluff after reading Cat's Aftershock fic.

This was perfect. SO cute. :-D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 28th, 2012 07:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
