Title: The Healing Dark
Challenge: [livejournal.com profile] primeval100 #197: These are a few of my favorite things
Word Count: 100
Rating: G
Characters/Pairing: Charlotte Cameron/Ethan Dobrowski
Disclaimer: Not mine.

Though Charlotte knew she would be exhausted come morning, she fought against sleep, wanting to savour what was a rare moment.

Her Ethan, sound asleep, the lines of his face smoothed to softness under her fingers.

She knew what it meant for him, the dreamlessness allowing him some moment's peace, but she could only appreciate what it meant for her.

A day or two, if she were so blessed, when she herself could rest and not fret about keeping his demons at bay.

With a yawn, she finally allowed herself to close her eyes, snugged against him in the dark.

So much backstory there - a glimpse into a whole complex relationship of which we see the merest mention in canon.
Lovely and poignant.

Thank you! Your comments always make me squee. I need a pocket-Ali to whip out when I need a boost. :D

You know, you've got me really interested in Charlotte and Ethan now... *beats back bunnies with a stick*

*points emphatically at icon*

They nagged at the back of my mind all through the series but I watched episode 3 again and it was like getting hit between the eyes.

Obviously he loved her and she him and the question is, why? Particularly on Charlotte's part since Ethan is a wacko LOL.

I already told you last night I loved this, but I'll tell you again :)

It's a nice view of something we only get the barest hint of in canon, which is a shame really, I'd liked to have learned more about that.

Thank you, Sis! *glomps and clings*

I'd liked to have learned more about that.

I know! Even though it will probably joss anything I write about them between now and then, I'm hoping we get to hear more about Ethan & Charlotte in s5.

Ethan is obviously a nutball so what about Charlotte made him love her and her love him and be able to "look after him" as she and Emily alluded to?

Ooh, very nice. So Ethan is not the only one fighting his demons. Poor Charlotte. Poor Ethan.

She did tell Emily that Ethan needed looking after! But, I do think it adds an interesting dimension to Ethan that Charlotte cared for him, ya know?

Thanks for reading!

Lovely look at these two and how they could have connected.

Aw, a lovely look at these two! We didn't get much on them in canon, but they certainly interest me. I'm actually writing a bit of back story on them into my current fic.

This says a lot in so few words; very sweet. (:

Thank you! And me too! It's fun because we can all right our takes and not worry about being jossed for at least a few months.
