Numb3rs Fic: Dreams and Nightmares  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #291 – Dream

Title: Dreams and Nightmares
Pairing/Characters: Don
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: Friendly Fire
Summary: Don can't stop dreaming about what he had to do that night
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

The hallway seems to go on forever, each doorway fraught with potential danger.

Hands sweating on the grip of his gun, Don clears each room, adrenaline spiking each time a cardboard cutout pops out instead of the real armed man he's seeking.

A disembodied voice taunts him with memories of the past and a denial of any future.

Don wants to lay down his weapon, call a cease fire.

But there is no surrendering here.

In his dreams, Don shoots his mentor over and over.

In his nightmares Don can't pull the trigger.

And Pete's the one who shoots him.

I confess I had a really cool bunny for a Don dream fic and then I forgot it. /headdesk/

This one will have to do instead. /sigh/

Very nice! I can totally see that as a nightmare Don would have. It's almost hard to figure out which version of the dream would be worse.

awww...Donnie. *snugs him

I was worried about him after this one, for sure!

Very nicely done. I was surprised there wasn't more fic following this episode.

I'm with Rilla on this one, I'm not sure which dream would be worse for him. *pets his Season 6 hair
