City Bound In My Dreams
Character study, relationship study, excuse to write short Shep/Weir moments... I don't know. But here is another:


He waits only one day - he is reminded of the time, his watch moves so slowly - and then he disobeys her direct orders.

There is no reason to lose her, no matter the circumstances, the alliances, the risks. He doesn't want to accept the assignment she chose for him.

No argument, she'd said to him so calmly, convinced of her reasons, of her eventual success.

She was the embodiment of the idealism he had lost somewhere in his youth.

--

The firefight is a sparkle of sound and light that echoes across the valley he guards. Prisoners of war are not taken in this battle, and he has brought ten more members of their dwindling city to fight beside him for a situation she would never have wanted saved.

He loses three, and they will haunt him forever.

They travel by foot for better concealment, walking aimlessly because he doesn't know where to go.

She is pale and shaky when they eventually find her, a gash in her side covered by fabric damp with her blood.

He stalls, knowing he must make her walk through this forest world of rain and the cold. She meets only his eyes, and he doesn't know how to tell her that he was never meant to run the city alone.

*FLAILS*

That is so so SO a big part of what's going on, and I think a big part of what was going on in "The Eye," too. And professional codependence does kind of exchange well with romantic intention, so that's good. :)

Yay for teenytiny fic polaroids!

why is the text in your comment box so very small? apologies for typos but I can't read it. :(

Damn you. It's official. I'm going to make you my bestestest friend for ever and ever omg, or I'm going to stalk you like a psycho-snapshots-loving-freak. I can't believe I woke up to this!!! *fangirls you SO hard* I don't care how short this snapshot is. I'm quoting everything I love about it and you're just going to have to sit here and suffer through it. Ha!

Erm... okay... what is this 'exceeded character limits' thing anyway? PFFFT! Have sent you email instead because I'm insane and stuff.
