Notes: For primeval100: challenge 431: Past prompts.
Using past prompt: 409 – Dear Diary…
“It’s been six days and I want to go home. Becker and Matt are driving me crazy! They made me run today. Becker claimed it was only two miles – yeah, right! They decided, while we’re stuck here and nothing’s out to eat us, we should use the time for training. Why?!! I’m knackered and when we got back they wouldn’t let me sleep because it was my turn to cook.
I burned the squirrel things they’d caught but it didn’t matter; they taste like crap either way. I could murder a Mcdonalds. Or a pizza.
Great; now I’m hungry again…”
Pairing: Connor / Becker
Using past prompt: 397 - The holidays are coming
Becker brought in more shopping bags, adding them to the same cupboard he’d been stashing things in for the past couple of weeks.
“Well, that’s it. I’ve finished my Christmas shopping. Just need to get it wrapped up and-”
“I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but its June. We’re in the middle of a heat wave.”
“Yes, but there are only 204 days until Christmas; anything could happen between now and then, especially in our jobs,” Becker said huffily.
Connor grinned. “It’s a good thing you’re cute ‘cos you’re a complete weirdo.”
“I just like to be prepared,” Becker grumbled.
Using past prompt: 390 – Connor Temple
They were taking bets on the reason for Connor’s mood: He’d won the lottery; he’d been published; he’d started dating an underwear model; he’d discovered the answer to some universal mystery. The theories had started when Connor practically danced through the detector room a couple of hours earlier.
Now Jess’s curiosity had got the better of her.
“Okay, what happened? Why are you in such a good mood?”
Connor pulled up text on his laptop. “I found something awesome! Look.”
The highlighted passage described a temple: ‘Conor Temple’.
“It’s me, well, kind of. And spelled differently, but it’s still cool.”
*Loosely inspired by the conversation between Connor and Cutter in 1.1
Connor introduces himself: “Connor Temple.”
Cutter, distracted, replies: “Never heard of it.”
