Primeval Fic: A Ripple in Time  
Posted to primeval_fanfic

Title: A Ripple in Time
Pairing/Characters: Nick/Claudia
Rating: PG13
Spoilers: Seasons 1 and 2
Summary: Claudia pauses to think about how things could have been different
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

She feels a lurching sensation, one so strong she has to put her hand out to steady herself. For a moment Claudia worries it's morning sickness and she's pregnant again, but it passes so quickly that she dismisses it. Besides, it's not like she'd had sex with her husband in the last couple of months. Two kids was enough, even if Nick had sworn he wanted a whole clan of them. He'd calmed down on asking for more children when he lost Stephen and stopped altogether when Connor died.

Still, she'd have had one more child - for him. It would be one final piece of him to hold onto now that he was gone.

Claudia pauses, pondering. Perhaps there is a world out there where she was lost to the vagaries of time and Nick was still with them.

Oh ouch. /felt that all the way to my toes/

I'm kinda surprised you wrote Primeval fic while I was over here sweating all this homework, so Brava! More year-end fic ftw!

Interesting take on things! I like fics that explore might-have-beens.

And I totally got rid of my Nick/Claudia icon.
