Title: It Hadn't Worked
Characters: Charlie.
Rating: PG
Warnings: Spoilers for LA X, drug use (implied).
Summary: Charlie had tried redeeming himself before; it hadn't worked. Written for lost_in_108 prompt #19: redemption.



He’d tried redeeming himself before, and it hadn’t worked. It was always the same, Dad belittling him, Liam shoving him to one side. And it was the same here on this sodding island. The A-Team off on their missions, Charlie stuck at the kids’ table.

But things had been different. He’d kicked the drugs, he’d regained Claire’s trust, he’d proved he could care about someone else. He had genuine friends like Hurley, not the hangers-on from the band days.

Charlie remembers all this before Sayid breaks down the door, before he realises he is on Flight 815 again and that none of it will happen.

Terrific, he thinks.

Oh, interesting take on the AU and how it connects to the other timeline. That being said, poor Charlie =[

Thank you, I wonder if we will find out that this is the case? Probably not though, with my track record of predictions!

Mmm. I was hoping that some new Charlie fic would result of the new ep last night, and I'm not disappointed. :)

Wow. Charlie fic. *is in awe of this phenomenon*

Great drabble, nice and succinct and also great throwback to the Pilot when the monster is smushing trees and he goes "Terrific." XD oh Charlie I've missed you...

This is so heartbreaking, and so well-done.
