Dear Boone:



I'm sorry I ever killed you off or injured you in any fics. May you live happily ever after in an AU/slash fic with Jack. Like this one.

Sniff. Hurts so good. Now I'm even more sad! The happy endings that could have been... At least we can officially say that Jack and Boone were together til the very end, even if it was bittersweet.

Does that mean it's all your fault?

Very bittersweet. Aw. Sorry to make you sadder.

Well, I'm a little freaked out. I wrote a fic where Boone broke his leg and Jack stayed with him. (It was hurt/comfort and a little smutty.) And one where Boone dies and the fic ends with his funeral.

Of course I've also killed off other characters and they're still around (for now!) So I guess that means I'm off the hook!

And I have ongoing fics like Happy Birthday where I'm going to still write about Boone. It feels a bit ... odd. (This is my first fandom I've written fic for. I'm sure it's a common dilemma.)

Dude, it's surreal when what you write or wish aloud actually happens. I was wishing for Starbuck and Baltar on BSG to get together already when no one else was even considering that pairing - everyone wanted Starbuck and Apollo - then within the first five minutes of the very next new episode Starbuck and Baltar were playing hide the sausage. It was a whoa moment.

I can imagine it would feel strange to write Boone now. When Doyle on Angel died in the first season, it sent the fandom into a tailspin. And sure enough, it did have a big impact on how much we saw him in fic afterwards :(

I've had that happen a few times with Lost fic - like when I wrote Kate's backstory as a bank robbery before WTCMB. (Although mine was quite different, still.)

Yeah, character death adds a degree of reverence. Just had to rework an ongoing fic to deal with that but now I think it's better than it was before.

Poor Doyle. And Glenn Quinn.

Thanks! I honestly felt bad. Maybe that's silly.

I so hate Lost for killing him. And that story is a wonderful 'what could have been'.

With Jack's reactions during that episode, we slashers can be happy in the thought that he and Boone had something.

I've always loved the sweetness of Jack/Boone. Every other slash pairing seems to be based on aggression and this one seemed based on comfort/protection. It wasn't my OTP but I still liked them together. Last night was amazingly slashy, if it's not wrong to be thinking of that through all the sorrow. I just loved them both and it killed me!

I have, too. That's what drew me to them - Jack's need to protect and Boone's need for protection.*sigh* It's not wrong to have been thinking that; I was, too.

They did such a lovely job with those scenes, both the writing and the acting.

I wonder if we'll see much more Jack/Boone now (besides fallout from Do No Harm) or if that's the end of it. (Lost is my first fanfic fandom.)

Aww. I spent the episode going, "Dude, when did Jack promise you anything? Was this during cuddle time that the camera missed?" Poor Boone. Such potential.

Aw, cuddle time. Jack was so devoted to him. And Boone was surprisingly lucid and determined. Wow. Their scenes together were fantastic. Bye, Boone! :-(

(I guess I may need to get a Boone icon in memoriam.)

I need a Boone icon now. I think I may pay for those extra icons.
