TSCC quick fic - Faith in the Machine

[Just a quick peek into Derek's head near in the end of The Mousetrap.]

Sarah had the van rolling fast over the dirt, but it was futile and Derek knew it. And he knew she knew it. But she was determined to get to John. The stone intensity of her face against the jumbled blur of desert brush told him that. Even as the god damned wife's moans competed with rushing wind, Sarah's foot stayed hard on the pedal, knuckles tight to the wheel.

Derek just wanted this god-awful situation to end. He didn't fucking care if that woman bled out back there. Why should he? She's not important. Stopping Skynet is important. Changing the future is important. And smashing that metal mother fucker into junk is important — would be important if they could get to it in time.

He steadied himself with a hand against the dash and prayed the other metal wouldn't glitch again. It was all he could do — put his faith in one fucking machine to protect his nephew from another.

I'm really not much of a fic writer, but I wrote a couple sentences of that a while back and was in the mood to write a few more last night. I need to ease my way back into LJ, though, and this seemed like a good place to start. Thanks for reading.

No Problem ...

I will admit that LJ is sort of dying out these days, but then you do have more followers than I do, but still it seems to be going down these last couple of months.

So ... I'm not sure how many people are left. It could possibly be just me and Fig_Aruna throwing popcorn at you ...

But I've been known to be wrong ...

From time to time.

Maybe the explosion of social media and regular blogging has hurt it? I keep hearing it's dying, but I don't really know the ebb and flow of LJ. I've only been here since '08 and I came here purely for the TSCC fandom.

Than we share the same orgins ... I joined in late 2008 just to blog about TSCC.

I believe the social media thing ... I was just made fun of by a twitter friend for still using LJ so ... Who knows?

Fuck Facebook and Twitter. Live Journal is still important to me.
I never used it before, only for Roxy's Live Journal. I care enough to have actually checked up on it, to have it in my top sites page, to ironically check right after Roxy posts something, as if we are on a parallel wavelength.

Facebook is for losers and is the religion of the virtual world. It's corrupt and is slowly taking over through the power of retarded minds everywhere.

Call it a hunch, but I'm thinking you don't like facebook much ;)

I enjoyed facebook a few years ago — it was fun for a while when all these old friends I hadn't talked to in many years all started showing up. We got caught up with each other, reminisced about silly things we did when we were younger. But all that fades quickly. I have nothing in common with most of them and I really only interact with a handful of people there anymore.

The novelty of twitter is gone now too. I don't use it nearly as much as I used to, but it can still be fun. Twitter reminds me a lot of the "Meet Market" thread in the TSCC section of Television Without Pity. That was the a off-topic, general chit-chat thread and conversation would flow very rapidly on there some days. My favorite times on twitter are like that. The rest of the time.. eh.

LJ is important, I agree. I'm hoping to rekindle my love for it.

as if we are on a parallel wavelength

It's the cosmic unconsciousness!
