Fringe Drabble: "Singularity"  
Title: Singularity
Fandom: Fringe
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Walter, Peter (Gen, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary (S3 finale): It was the most desperate choice of all.
Author's Notes: For writerverse, and the prompt of "It Had To Be Done."

x-x-x-x-x

Of all the words that could have admitted the truth of Peter's sacrifice, the hardest was Goodbye.

There was hope, Walter thought, that Peter might survive—that they all might continue forward in isolated parallels of the universes now bleeding together so freely and nearly cancelling each other out. But God, the risk: losing Peter to save both worlds was an equation any scientist could measure and an agony no father could forget.

Peter chose, instead. He was so brave, so certain.

He put humanity first. Walter would have destroyed it again in a heartbeat, just to bring Peter back.

Oh, that was lovely! The last line just drives it home - heartbreaking. This fic is giving me all the Walter feels. <3

Thank you!

I really, really miss the S1-S3 Walter and Olivia. Their pain was so exquisite, and there's something about knowing that Walter caused this mess and probably would still do it all over again to have Peter back that just gets to you.

So much said in just such a short drabble; the emotions are so intense... now I miss the show *tissues* :*) <3

I miss it, too. The weirdness was always secondary to the joy of the characters for me, and Walter and Peter's various arcs in the different universes used to just break me.

All of Walter's worst havoc on the world was accidental, and all driven by love. There is a terrible beauty in all of it.

Lovely. Introspection makes me miss this show all the more.

Me, too. I think it might be time to rewatch the series via Netflix now, and revisit some of the lovely pain of those early seasons.

Thanks for reading!
