Random Sawyer meta

*sssh, I'm not here, I'm working*

So I was out on my afternoon walk, thinking about Sawyer, as I often do, LOL.


I was roughing out a fic idea when my mind wandered to how Sawyer might guess Jack takes after his dad in the drinking department. And then wondering, how much does Sawyer take after his dad? Specifically, how Sawyer's really not the best shot. His dad shot himself in the face (I think it's safe to assume he held the shotgun under his chin or put it in his mouth and pulled the trigger) and possibly shot Sawyer's mom in the head as well. Maybe that's why Sawyer's always shooting people (well, twice now) in the chest. He can't bring himself to shoot someone in the head, can't actually bring himself to make that guaranteed kill shot.


I might still fic that, somehow, only maybe not in a drinking-wine-with-Jack fic! ;)

Oooh, very interesting insight! And one I'd really like to see that get ficced from you somehow.

I like that observation, now that could become one hell of an angsty fic!!

Not sure what I'd do with it yet since I already wrote a fic about Sawyer's history with guns, but it'll pop up somewhere. That's the trouble sometimes, a new insight wants to be in *every* fic!

Ha! You ponder Sawyer while walking the dog. I ponder while in the downtime of my event. It is amazing how much time I spend thinking about Lost things. I probably should feel like I'm wasting my mental energy, but I have to say, I don't. B/c I really enjoy it, I guess.

Since I re-watched whichever Pilot it is, 1 I think, where Jack gets Cindy to give him those little airplane bottles of vodka, I've been thinking about a fic centered on Jack's drinking. So, as soon as I finish up all the bajillion other fic I've got lined up, I'm gonna write an alcoholic!Jack fic. That should be uplifting (not).

I really hadn't made that connection w/Sawyer shooting people in the chest v. head. Interesting idea.

;) Noo! It's not wasted mental energy! And yeah, just about anything can make me think of Lost. I got the idea for that tennis fic while strolling past the local courts.

And yeah, I do think Jack's an alcoholic, even if he's not going through d.t. on the island. *nods* His hitting that bottle pretty hard the night before his wedding kind of sealed that idea for me. You should totally write an alcoholic!Jack fic!

Yeah, I need to make up for writing him drunk so often and ignoring his family history of alcoholism. I'm really not very good about adhering to canon.

I just need to figure out an angle for that fic. Obviously, more pondering needs to happen.

Ahh, I've gotten them both drunk so many times too, mostly without bothering with that, except maybe in the Jack/James verse. But I was just thinking of a drinking fic where it does come out a little bit more, seeing as how Sawyer knows about his father. I actually have written that too (before Sawyer did tell Jack about his daddy in canon) but sometimes an idea is worth revisiting, especially when canon trumps us all to hell!

(And since I'm doing my fanfic100 table ... one of the prompts is "drink" and I could have assigned that to about 30 fics, I think, LOL. But I don't like the one I slapped it on before anymore, so I'm going to claim it anew, if I ever get this one written.)

Anyway, yes, I'd love to see your take on alcoholic!Jack. :)

Oh, I should add, mine's probably going to be just an excuse for flirting and smut, as usual, LOL. Nothing deep!

I like your take on this!! :D

my friends are SO smart and imaginative

and nothing wrong about thinking about Sawyer here and there, because if there was, I'd be on death row or something ;)

Oh dear! I think capital punishment is the only thing that would deter me from thinking about Sawyer ... and since they can't monitor that, then we're all good! ;)
