Title: I Feel Nothing In My Hand, Nothing But The Feel Of Steel
Characters: Shannon, Charlie. Mentions of Boone, Locke, Ethan, Claire.
Rating: PG
Warnings: S1 spoilers only.
Summary: Written for lost_in_108 prompt #62: gun. Charlie is the only person to understand Shannon's state of mind when she attempted to shoot Locke.



Shannon glared at Charlie as he approached. “Come to say how sorry you are? Just leave me alone.”

“I heard what happened, you know, with Locke,” Charlie sat down beside her.

“Come to give me crap too?” Shannon snapped.

“No, I’ve come to tell you that I understand why. It’s like it was for me with Ethan, where all I could think was to punish him for what he did to Claire. But in the end, it didn’t make me feel better.”

“I don’t think Boone would have wanted me to do it,” Shannon admitted. “He hated guns.”

Shannon looked at Charlie, and knew they understood each other.

this was really sweet :) I wouldn't have thought of these characters together, even in a scene like this. well done!

Thank you! I'd never thought about it before writing this, but Charlie really was the most likely character to understand where Shannon was coming from here, so thinking about it now it seems odd that he was never given the chance to talk to Shannon about it. But then I do tend to spot parallels like this - I still think Alex and Claire, for example, should have had the chance to bond over being reunited with a parent previously believed dead, and don't get me started on Sayid and Desmond's entire life stories!

I love the dialogue here, it feels very real and in character. :)

I never would have thought to connect those two incidents. But this is a great scene between the two of them.
