Canon: Lost
Characters/Pairing: Kate, Sawyer (Kate/Sawyer? It's a mystery.)
Prompt: when we dance
Rating: G 




Sawyer, silvered hair tucked behind his ears, flashes a dimpled grin as he finishes his dancing duty with his just-married daughter.

Assigned to a seat between his and Cassidy's, Kate answers to Freckles all night -- he never shook the habit -- and drinks champagne while he watches.

He asks her to dance. The table is all eyes, and she laughs, head shaking, but stands with him.

Hands respectful at her waist, he asks how she's been, where she's been, where she's going. She answers each without complaint.

The song fades away; she kisses his jaw. "Love you too, James."

...I love this so much, you have no idea. It's them, and it's perfect, and it's beautiful, and it's emotionally wringing and it makes me happy and sad at the same time, just like the show back when it was, you know, good, so... thank you for sharing.

Thank you!

I'm so happy you like it. I know writing it made me both happy and sad, too.

This is simply beautiful. I love the idea of what might be for them many years down the line. I like the way they've matured but they're still them. So much here in lovely, compact writing.

Thank you! I'd hoped to achieve a little balance between realism and the implications of the show's finale here. I'm so glad you liked it!
