Gone

A little Lost drabble that I wrote today. PG-13. S3 spoilers abound. Set right after the finale. 


Gone

            Claire found the ring when they got back to the beach, and she knew. She knew that Charlie would never be coming back to her. Her gaze swept out across the ocean as she held a sleeping Aaron in her arms. The waves moved ceaselessly back and forth, an undulating grave for the man she had fallen in love with.
            She wanted to be angry with him. She wanted to hate him for sacrificing himself, for leaving her. But she just couldn't do it. The ring told her that he knew what would happen to him when he dove down to the underwater station – and he had gone anyway, willingly. She smiled a little at that. Whatever else could be said about Charlie, he was a hero.
            Footsteps approached her from behind, and Claire turned to find Hurley standing there. His eyes rested on the ring in her hand.
            "Guess he did it. Charlie. He saved us."
            Tears built behind her eyes as she nodded. "Yeah. He did."
            "I wanted to go with him and Desmond. But he wouldn't let me." Hurley's gaze moved out across the ocean, just as hers had only moments before. "He's gone, isn't he? That's why he wouldn't let me come with him. He knew he wouldn't be coming back."
            The emotion in his voice was her undoing, and tears began sliding down her cheeks. Gently, she placed Aaron in his crib and then turned back to face the man before her.
            "Yeah, Hurley. I think he's gone."
            His face fell as his own tears came. Claire watched him for a moment, her heart breaking for both of them. Then she stepped forward, wrapping her arms as far around him as she could and holding him tightly.
            They stood there for a long time, mourning for their friend. The only thing left to do now was remember him kindly, and wait for the rescue he had died to bring them.

Title: A Different Future
Rating: PG-13 for character death
A/N: Woohoo! I wrote something non-24 related!!!
A/N2: This is set in the S3 finale. I decided to change what happened, despite what the flash-forward told us....



            The sound didn't catch up to her until she saw the look on Jack's face. His head cocked to the side, and his eyes narrowed in confusion as he stared at Locke. Everyone else was silent as they looked on in horror. Of all the things they had anticipated and dreaded that day, none of them had imagined this.
            As Jack's legs buckled and he crumpled to the ground, Kate ran to him. Blood was already seeping out of the wound, and she pressed her palm against it, trying vainly to stem the flow. The red stained her fingers, and she was surprised at how hot it was.
            "Jack," she begged. "Stay with me. Please."
            His chest rattled as he tried to take in a breath. Staring into his eyes, Kate couldn't stop the tears that streamed down her face. She reached out her other hand and ran her fingers through his hair, and mustered a small smile. Leaning over, she brushed her lips against his.
            "I love you," she whispered.
            She felt the faintest touch against her other hand, causing her to look down. Jack's hand slowly moved over hers, taking it off of his wound and entwining their fingers. Her shoulders shook as her sobs overcame her, and as she moved her eyes to his again, he gave her the faintest of smiles. Then his chest went still and his grasp on her hand went slack.
            Kate buried her head in the crook of his neck, letting her cries overtake her. She clutched his hand tightly, wishing that somehow she could give him some of her strength, just enough for him to be okay, to take the smallest of breaths. But his body remained still, and eventually her cries subsided.
            Sitting back up, she gently closed his eyes. Then she slowly got to her feet, taking a moment to steady herself as she stared off across the island. The other survivors watched her warily, unsure of what her next move would be.
            "I'm sorry, Kate," Locke finally said. "But I had to do it. I couldn't let them find us. If that happens, all will be lost –"
            Kate reached into the waistband at the back of her pants and pulled out the handgun she had taken to carrying around with her. Without a word, with tears still sliding down her cheeks, she turned and fired three shots into John Locke's chest. Even as he was falling to the ground, she bent down and picked up the radio still resting in Jack's hand.
            "Hello? Hello! Are you there?" a voice crackled through.
            Kate lifted the radio to her ear like a phone.
            "We are the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815…"
           


 
failegaidin: (24 LOST)
Okay, friends this is a message to all of you so that I don't get any more emails where I have to shut my eyes and try to maintain self-control. 

For 24 and LOST, I'm attempting to remain SPOILER FREE. That's right. Despite wanting to know REALLY REALLY badly what's going to happen, I want to watch a season of my shows where I have NO CLUE what's going to happen. Spoilers are fun, but (as the name suggests), they ruin the surprises. And I LIKE surprises. I LOVED that I didn't see Curtis' tragic (and then made cheap by TPTB killing Assad) coming. I LOVED that I didn't foresee the deaths of Ana Lucia and Libby. And spoilers just disappoint me when they don't happen (READ: TONY). So...I'm going to try. It's going to be hard, because I'm uber curious and awful like that. But I'm going to try. So please don't send spoilers to me in emails or leave them in my comments. Please oh please I beg you. 

Thank you.

Columbia Sex Ban

Generally speaking, using sex as a weapon is a bad thing. I think it even tells us in the Bible that we are not to withhold sex out of spite or as bribery. Of course, you Bible scholars can probably tell me what the Bible actually says, as opposed to my vague referencing. But I think these Columbian women are on to something here. Their gun-toting boyfriends are not afraid of the law. In fact, they’re pretty much not afraid of anything. Except the absence of sex. I mean, c’mon – that’s enough to scare just about anybody. These women got together, and decided as a group to withhold sex from their husbands/boyfriends/lovers until their men decided to give up the guns. Rock on, sisters, rock on.

Rammstein

I don’t want to badmouth a band which many people enjoy. I, in fact, enjoy the song “Du Has.” It’s rocky, it’s angry, it’s a great driving song when the world has royally pissed you off. Of course, all of us Americans think that the means is “You hate me,” when in fact, that is kind of up for debate, seeing as how the German word for “hate” is very close to the word for “have.” But that is all beside the point.

Have any of you looked up the English translations of their songs? I mean, seriously. Here’s an example:

What does a man do
what does a man do
who can't tell the difference
between human and animal
what
He will go to his daughter
she is beautiful and young in years
and then, like a dog, he will
mate with his own flesh and blood
What do you do
What do you feel
What are you
but an
animal
What does the woman do
what does the woman do
who can't tell the difference
between animal and man
She dips the quill in his blood
and write herself a letter
lifeless lines to her childhood
when her father slept by her
What do you do
What do you feel
What are you
but an animal
I think all that needs to be said has been said.

Lost

I honestly don’t know how much longer I can make it until the Season 3 Premiere of Lost. The premiere date is two weeks later than almost every other show’s. Every NBC show pretty much premieres September 18th-22nd. But no, not Lost. They have to torture their fans until OCTOBER 4TH. That’s just plain mean. All we want to know is where Jack, Kate and Sawyer are being kept. Where Michael and Walt are going. If Eko, Locke and Desmond are still alive. I don’t think that’s asking too much.

Law and Order: Criminal Intent Season Premiere

Eames gets kidnapped by a serial killer. ‘Nuff said.

Thin Models and Discrimination

At a runway show in Madrid (I believe), models that were too thin were turned away. The guy in charge decided that models should be promoting a healthy body image, because so many women and young girls strive to look like what they see on TV. They had medics on hand, who calculated the girls’ BMI and if it was too low, they turned them away. I was actually stunned when I saw this article. Part of me protests that this is discrimination and those models have a right for legal action. But on the other hand, they have a responsibility (a social one) to show that it’s okay to be healthy. That you don’t need to anorexic for fashions to fit you. That you don’t need to look sickly and like death warmed over to be able walk the runway.

Save Darfur Rally

NYC. Central Park. Sunday, September 17th. 2-5pm. Be there. The genocide needs to stop, and a U.N. peacekeeping force needs to go in. Since we seem to be so interested in butting into other countries’ business, how about we butt in where we’re actually needed?
