First Steps

Title: First Steps
Characters: Ethan, Ben, Amy.
Rating: PG
Warnings: Spoilers for S5, plus speculation about Ethan's motivation for choosing to go with the Hostiles. References to a character death.
Summary: Written for lost_in_108 prompt #54: nightmare. Ethan confides in Ben about his nightmare visions of his dead mother.


Ethan used to have nightmares while his mother was still alive, after nights of being kept awake while his parents yelled at each other, usually about someone named Paul.

He saw her again after she died, calling to him. “I didn’t want to leave you. It was your father who wanted to have another child. That’s why I’m dead.”

Ethan told Ben about the nightmare; Ben didn’t seem surprised. “It’s DHARMA’s experiments that have caused this pregnancy problem. That’s why Amy died. But don’t worry. I’ve been talking to the Hostiles about putting a stop to them. You can help me, Ethan. But you’ll have to be patient.”

Nice, answers the question about how Ethan came to join The Others.

I'd often wondered what it was that made Ethan become this character who was okay with the Purge, and what prompted him to join the Others, and this idea seemed to fit with the known facts, glad you liked!
