Notes: For primeval100 challenge 226: Sarah Page.
Spoilers: Series 3.1 / webisodes
Warnings: Character death.



First day nerves


Sarah looked around in awe as Connor showed her around the ARC. She had thought what happened at the museum was an unusual day for them, but no. This place, the animals in the menagerie, what they did… It was amazing.

“Dr Page, are you alright?”

Sarah smiled. “Call me Sarah. I’m just a little overwhelmed.”

“It is pretty cool,” Connor agreed. “Come on, I’ll introduce you to everyone else.”

She had worried about not fitting in, but the team offered a warm welcome, making her feel comfortable with them immediately.

Sarah smiled; she was going to like it here.



Practice makes perfect


Sarah watched Becker demonstrate how to hold the weapon, where to put her hands, how to fire it. She had no intention of ever using a gun on a living creature but it was ARC policy that everyone have the training.

Besides, it meant a few hours alone with Becker. Granted he seemed more excited about the gun, but she found that rather adorable.

When he stood behind her, leaning closer to position her hands, she fought the urge to snuggle in. God, he smelled good.

She fired, missing the target. Oh well, she’d just have to have more practice.



Maybe one day


Becker yelled at Sarah to retreat through the anomaly as the creatures advanced. They had him trapped, unable to get back to the anomaly, but at least she would be safe.

Then he heard a shout.

The creatures rushed Sarah as she tried to distract them, to let him get away. He saw the creature strike at Sarah with razor sharp claws, watched her fall, screaming.

Becker woke with a start. The nightmare was always the same, reliving those last moments yet still unable to reach her in time.

Maybe one day he’d save her, if only in his dreams.

Oh meep!! Horribly angsty ending, especially after the lovely snuggle on the shooting range. I loved the detail of him smelling nice!

I think anyone would be tempted to use having him that close as an excuse to snuggle!

Oh, *meep meep meep* at that ending, but so excellently written. *Blinks eyes rapidly as I seem to have something in them*

These fit together really well, despite the differences in tone between them :)

Thanks. The last one came first, but she needed some happy-time first.

Oh no!! I didn't want to see her heroism, it's too painful. But I adored the middle one so much! *squee*

Sorry! But if it had to happen, at least she went out fighting.

The middle one is my favourite- I think we'd all trade places with her in a heartbeat.

*meep and double meep* Lovely snuggles in the middle and than the angst at the end when Sarah is a hero. Lovely, if meep, drabbles.

*looks apologetic* That one came into my head and isisted on being written. I did give her sunggles first, though.

Fantastic. What a wonderful set of drabbles. I hope one day Becker will be able to save her in his dreams or maybe in another timeline.

Thank you!

And maybe he will find a way to change things.

Thanks! I didn't want it all to be about the end; I wanted her to be happy there first.

What a mix of fun and angst! Poor Sarah, but a great tribute to her time at the ARC.

She enjoyed herself while she was there, and went out as a hero.

Lovely series of drabbles and loved the tonal shift from the first to the last. Poor Becker.

Becker would definitely continue to blame himself.
