Fic: Looking Glass Derived Refractions

looking glass derived refractions.
cameron looks different from this angle. terminator: tscc; sarah/cameron.
rated r. 200 words (double drabble). this is not fluff.

sarah occasionally wonders what her affair with cameron would look like to an outside observer, if there ever were a witness to what they do together.

she imagines she would come off as the woman married to her purpose who makes poor choices involving a would-be mortal enemy out of pure need. the idiot who screws around with a machine with the emotional range of a goldfish instead of forming healthy relationships with human beings.

cameron looks different when sarah is on top of her, when the subroutines that make her act almost human during sex are engaged. from this angle it could look like they are making love; a fleeting thought that sarah shrugs off as quickly as it came to her.

then there are the nights that sarah drags cameron to the basement, tearing her away from her duties. she keeps her eyes closed those nights; if she sees the words written in blood on the wall she’ll have to stop. cameron will look up at her from between her legs and ask her if anything is wrong; sarah will answer with biting sarcasm that the robot will not understand.

sarah tries not to wonder too much.

Um, if I ever needed another reason to love you, this is it.

Thank you, you're a sweetheart.

I miss you talking to you :(

This is gorgeous - and, I liked the song choice, intense...

This is epically written. The imagery is beautiful and I really adore reading your characterizations of these two. I love the idea of Sarah considering Cameron instead of the other way around.

Fantastic job, babe. ♥

Thanks dahling, I'm very glad you liked it.

For some reason, reading your adorable fluff made me want to write angst... I really can't explain it.

I appreciate the feedback. ♥

We're a good team, then. I'll write the fluff, you write the angst, and we create a nice balance for the Sarah/Cameron fangirls. It's a win-win! XD

Please tell me you've got more awesomeness planned.

This was short and bittersweet and wonderful. I enjoyed it very much. Thank you for posting it.

Ps...Maybe you and gsr could create one nice fluffy angsty piece. Flangst. Best of both worlds yeah? heh.

Win-win indeed; this way they get both the cute and the depressing, ;)

As for more writing, I'm sure I'll come up with something else soon. I kind of feel like writing some Dexter though. My life would be much easier if you were into that fandom. YOU SHOULD BE. IT HAS VIOLENCE AND JULIE BENZ! Let's see if my bandwagon-starting skills will work this time. I will sexually harrass you until you try it.

Exactly. :)

Dexter... I've heard of it but never really given it a shot. I just looked it up and Julie Benz seems really hot, so it may be worth it. I might watch an episode. :D

[identity profile] pinknoisewaltz.livejournal.com 2008-12-20 11:46 pm (UTC)(link)
You really ought to. It's actually my favorite show. I know, it makes me a bad Terminator fangirl, but it's still true. I fell in love with Julie Benz back when she was playing Darla on Angel. Because what's not to love about pretty vampires who act kind of gay?

If you do decide to check it out, which I think you should, because you seem to like awesome TV shows as a general rule, you should know that the first sequence of the first episode (the first murder, that is, GASP AT THE SPOILER!!1!ONE!1!) is kind of weird, and not representative of the rest of the show. So, yeah. Oh, and don't watch it around your parents and/or young children. And tell me if you get into it. We can fangirl and be creepy together. I do hope you like it.

I'm downloading the first episode right now and will watch it after I finish baking cupcakes. I'll make a post later and we can discuss it, if you'd like. :D

Excellent. I'm going to a pah-ty soon, but I'll definitely stalk your journal when I get back, to see what you thought about it. Have a good evening sweetie. <3

Sweet. Have fun tonight! ♥

Dexter is brilliant. I damn well love that show! 3 top fav shows, TSCC, Dexter and BSG. *hugs those shows* Runs off to geek it up elsewhere..

[identity profile] omiscully.livejournal.com 2008-12-20 02:27 pm (UTC)(link)
Very, very nice.

[identity profile] mysensitiveside.livejournal.com 2008-12-20 04:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Ooh, I really liked this! Short, but gorgeously written, and you managed to really say a lot in those few lines. Great job!

[identity profile] doesnt-go-away.livejournal.com 2008-12-21 12:27 am (UTC)(link)
That's awesome. Sad and real and... well, awesome. Thanks for sharing.

[identity profile] parallactic.livejournal.com 2008-12-21 04:48 am (UTC)(link)
That's how I picture what Sarah's attitude towards herself and the relationship be like if they were currently involved. Even though the optimist in me thinks that Sarah's opening up to Cameron more.

Thanks for the music.

Ooh, nice. Damaged and angsty and hot all rolled into one.

[identity profile] 4kennedy.livejournal.com 2008-12-25 11:13 am (UTC)(link)
very nicely done! you captured Sarah perfectly and I really liked what you did, what kind of story you told in a few word =) *applauds*
