Fandom: Jurassic Park III
Pairing: Alan Grant/Billy Brennan
Rating: R for language
Synopsis: Angst ficlet, set post the movie. Alan is considering retiring, giving up everything and putting everything behind him.
All he wants to do is forget he ever heard the word "dinosaur." Ever felt the fetid breath of one fan across his cheek. But he can't do that...
Because he can't ignore Billy.
Review: Oh yum. Angstful and realistic and bittersweet, with a killer of a last line. This is all Alan - Billy is there as a cipher, a focus for Alan's discontent but that works in the context of this little gem. Full of despair and yet satisfying for all of that.
