Title: Hero of the Day, Part 1
Pairing: Eventual Jack/Sawyer
Summary: Sawyer has a bad feeling about a fellow airline passenger (AU)
Rating: PG-13
Note: For the fabulous gottalovev! In going over my fics from 2007 I realized she's read just about every damn fic I wrote last year! So, massive hugs and thank you, hon! You're one of the best LJ friends anyone could ever ask for! Here's a fic that came to me while traveling over the holidays. I hope you like it. Thank you to zelda_zee for the beta!

Sawyer was never much of a flier to begin with ...Collapse )

Oooooooooh, very interesting start indeed - yes you are evil, but I trust you! I loved Sawyer's observations at the airport, wearing the bigger belt as a snark, and the little things here and there that built up the atmosphere. More!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yep, just a little evil! :) Very glad you're liking it so far. Working on more!

You ARE evil, EVIL, EVIL! But I love your stories (and you) anyway.

Write on, please, I put you into 'memories', and I would be waiting for the next part ...and the next, and the next, and so on until the end.
And then I shall be waiting for the next story. ;D

You are creating a very interesting AU.
Sawyer killing Benry was right, (in fact I wish they would kill him in the show, they won't, of cause, he is one of the key figures), but how are you going to avoid the consequences for Sawyer? Law and Order, my lady, Law and Order... Are you getting them to the Island anyway?

Sawyer trying to think of just the right innuendo-filled comment made me laugh. And his flight did turn out to be interesting, didn't it?

P.S. BTW, what series did you abandon? Couldn't they be renewed?

OMG, has it been this long since I responded to comments?

I wanted to be able to say I had more of the fic done (and now I do) but wow, that took a long time. Very glad you're enjoying it so far. And I would love to see Benry dispatched!

BTW, what series did you abandon? Couldn't they be renewed?

That was The Interview, which I last wrote updated in 2005... sadly, once I stopped to focus on another fic, the mojo was kind of gone. I had some back-end plotting issues that S2 would have helped, probably, but again, so much time has gone by and now S3 is over and it's almost S4! It's just hard to regain that momentum from so long ago. :-/

Thank you! I've finally written more. I didn't want to reply to comments until I did but I didn't think it would take so long!

Ooh! I'm loving this! I love AU fics that can still maintain that "Lost-y" vibe ;) Great job, I can't wait for the next part!

The up side to insomnia that strikes at 4 a.m. is (sometimes) the discovery of hidden treasures - and here you go - if this isn't pure gold, I don't know what is. Like everyone else, I was immediately sucked into the slightly AU, and into seeing things through a lustful Sawyer's eyes. And a heroic Sawyer's eyes, too! Sunk that knife into ol' Weasel Face without a moments hesitation. Go James.

"My mama's name is Mary..." he said softly, picturing her as clearly as if she were the one bending over him now. That line broke my heart, as did the paragraph that followed. *crawls back into bed, hoping for dreams inspired by wonderful beginning*

Aww, thanks so much, hon! :) *loves*

I'm late in replying to this but I wanted to wait until I had more of the fic to offer... Finally!

Great cliffhanger! I love how it is sexy and funny and suspenseful, all in one pretty little package. I think my favorite Sawyer/Jack stories are when one of them is wounded (though not necessarily physically), and the other nurses him back.

>>> And Mary, well, that was only ever one person to him. "My mama's name is Mary..." he said softly, picturing her as clearly as if she were the one bending over him now. <<<

Whenever Sawyer makes reference to his mother, it makes me wanna hold him really hard and stroke his hair. TMI? Sorry.

Really looking forward to your follow-up, it should make my January a little warmer.

I am definitely a sucker for that scenario as well! As I am for Sawyer childhood angst. *sigh*

I finally have more of this fic done and have posted... hope it warms up a bit. I'm feeling quite cold (and sad) myself.

I've had this bookmarked since you posted it and I just now finally got to it. ;)

I sorta loved it and really can't wait for more...Louie definitely deserved something like this.

*hugs*

Yay, glad you enjoyed it! And I'm just finally getting to replying to comments as I wanted to say "Here's more" and there finally is.

Yes, Lou's such a sweetie, and so are you!

Ahhh! I don't know why I only got to this now - SO! GOOD! (Weasel Face was Ben, yes? LOL!) It's like the What Is and What Should Never Be of Lost fic...sort of. I like this Sawyer, too, he's more...balanced. Intrigued to see where this goes!
