Bourne fic for ficangel

Happy birthday, m'dear! :) Here's a wee ficlet for you!

Title: Reflection
Fandom: Bourne Ultimatum
Pairing: Nicky/Jason
Rating: PG



He pauses, just for a moment, in the doorway of the bathroom, a somber reflection in the mirror. When she turns to face him, there’s a longing in his eyes, but it’s gone before she can even react to it. It’s her hair, dark and bobbed like Marie's was. He’s not seeing her, he’s seeing Marie. The ache she always feels around him, that constant, terrible ache, hammers her chest. She could go to him. She could reach out her hand to his face as she’d done so many, countless times before. She could draw him into a kiss, show that him that even if he doesn’t remember her, his body does. She thinks he might be enough of a gentleman, this new Jason Bourne, to give her what she wants, that he would be too polite to turn her down.

But he wouldn’t be remembering her, only Marie.

There’s a moment, the tiniest moment when she thinks he’s going to remember her. And then he turns away and she knows that that moment was lost long ago.

This man, Jason Bourne, may lay down for his life for her, he may trust her, but he has no idea who she is.

Nicky’s eyes meet her own reflection. She doesn’t look like herself. She’s not even sure who she is, anymore.

This was one of my very favorite scenes from the movie! Squee, danke!

She thinks he might be enough of a gentleman, this new Jason Bourne, to give her what she wants, that he would be too polite to turn her down.

That's one of the things that I find most intriguing about Jason, that he can be such a vicious bastard one moment and then so honestly flummoxed by female attention the next.

Yay! I knew I wanted to write you something and that scene had been sticking in my mind, so I went with it! It was a very loaded little moment, wasn't it? You get the feeling that if one of them had made a move, something definitely would have happened, but they both just let it pass.

And he is curiously gentlemanly, isn't he? :) He's an enigma, that Jason! So glad you liked this. Have a terrific day!

This was really good, there isn't enough Jason/Nicky fics out there. I especially liked the ending, nice job.

Thank you so much! I never thought of them as a couple until the third movie and then it was like, "Of course!"

And hey, you're also in Lost fandom, right? :)

I am. I mostly ship Jack/Shannon but I'm pretty flexible usually, those two are just so pretty and broken together.

Oh, I love Jack/Shannon! :) They really are very pretty and broken together, so true.

I think you ship Grey's Anatomy too..I'm totally friending you, like, ASAP.

Friending back! :)

And yep, I watch GA but I'm mostly about the slash pairings, although I don't read 'em or write 'em much. And I'm inexplicably for Mer/Der, at least when I'm watching. Meredith is like Kate on Lost to me -- I just don't hate either one, even though so many do.

I don't mind some slash pairings but I'm more for the unusual-what-on-earth-are-you-thinking pairings myself. I do love Meredith though, and no matter what crazy stunt Shonda Rhimes pulls next I'll probably always ship Mer/Der. I like Kate as a character most of the time, I'm just usually against Jate. I'm usually okay with Sawyer and Kate as a couple though, their plethora of issues alone and as a couple kind of intrigue me.

I'm fairly open to Jate in canon but Jate fic tends to end up being all about babies and that's really not my thing, LOL. And the way the show treats its pairings is rather shoddy, so I do enjoy non-canon pairings.

And Meredith, I just find that when she's sad, I'm sad and vice versa. And I never like Derek more than when he's hopelessly besotted with her. It's very hard to get chemistry to work on a show and I think they really have it, as do Sawyer and Kate. That said, I also enjoy the subtext of Mark/Derek and Meredith/Cristina.

Oh wow - that's only short but it packs a mighty punch - just fabulous...

Great idea and great writing - I really love it

Thank you so much! I really loved that moment in the film. :)

Oh thats sweet. Thank you for writing it. Few words, but full of emotions. Great job. I hope you write more someday. Please. :)

BTW: I really like your lj header. I was surprised to see it. Are you a Devotee, too? Because I`m and I adore Depeche Mode.

Thank you! That's so sweet of you to say. This is my first (and only) Bourne fic so far, but he is such a great character.

And yes, I love Depeche Mode! I'm kind of hooked on Dave Gahan's new solo album, hence the new header. Usually it's pretty Lost-centric around here. ;)

No problem and yes he is. It`s your first Bourne fic? Wow ... so your fanfic is even more great. :)

"Lost" oh great show ... and "Hourglass" I see. I think it`s really cool that Dave writes songs too, like Martin. I loved "Playing the Angel". Good to know, that you love DM. :)

Oh, thank you! And yep, longtime DM fan! :) Dave's voice just does something to me you know?

I hear them since I was 14. *lol* Now I`m 26 so I`m a longtime DM fan, too. :D And I know what you mean, Daves voice is so special that you can recognize him everywhere. So I just know ... Ok that`s Dave. *lol* I really like that.

Wow!
I always wanted someone to write about that scene, very good take on it, sort but impactful! ^_^

Yeah, angsty to be sure...
Personally I like to believe that the reason he gave in to Marie is because with the short dark hair she reminded him of Nicky from so long ago.

Very angsty and edgy.

Thanks for sharing.
