Venus

Drabble Meme

It's been awhile since I did one of these, and those writing muscles could use some flexing.

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing from me, so long as the pairing/characters are within my abilities to work with (as in, shows/etc. I actually watch and not so much with the Het or non-OTPs, please).

Not asking you to post this in your journal and reciprocate, but if you did that would be shiny for one and all!

All spots taken- now to the writing. Watch this space. :D

Terminator: SCC Drabble: Haunted (PG)

Title: Haunted
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Derek, Cameron (Gen, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary: When Derek looks at her, he sees a ghost.
Author's Notes: Drabble Meme offering for miss_mandy, whom I hope will think the spirit of this matches the request. Some speculation based on the finale and 2x04, "Allison From Palmdale."

x-x-x-x-x

When Derek looks at her, he sees a ghost.

He knows how John Connor felt about her, understands not wanting to let go. But projecting a real woman onto a machine… it's just wrong.

He knew Allison before John did, loved her first. The robot isn't Allison.

Derek's relieved when John sends Cameron into the past. No memories revived and destroyed around every corner, no pangs at the firelight shining through her hair.

When John sends him back, Derek knows what's waiting.

Her eyes are almost real.

But his name flattens in her mouth like nothing more than passing data.
