Fringe Drabble: "Terminus"

Title: Terminus
Fandom: Fringe
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: S4 Walter (Gen, Drabble)
Rating: PG
Summary (Season 4 pre-series): Tragedy lies in the space between science and magic.
Author's Notes: For the writerverse prompt of "Test Tube."


Walter was once considered dangerous. He could shift time, invent his own physics, even alter the boundaries of reality. One sleepless night too many might result in transforming the known universe (and who was to say that it hadn't already happened?)

But when Walter's son died (a helpless little boy like any other), part of Walter died, too. His insane ambitions were tethered by the knowledge that all of his science couldn't save his son. Peter was gone, despite a father who should have been able to bend the stars.

Walter had failed.

There were no dreams left to chase.
