Drabble again

Geeze. I got all the way into my PJs before this one ambushed me in the bathroom.


Fix

She knew when she married Charlie that this day might come.

That it would.

So the tears fall, but gently. The other wives are bolstered by her bravery. She still goes to work, hurrying through warm rain from her car to the building.

(He left that morning with a quick kiss. "Something's screwed up. We have to fix it.")

She makes her rounds. Diagnoses. Prescribes. Smiles at recovery. Embraces a family whose child died during the night. Then sits alone in the bathroom as the tears fall again. Violently.

(You can't save them all, Janet.)

(You can't fix everything, Charlie.)

Interesting story.

I'm just wondering if there is a lot of precident for Janet/Charlie fic, because my Zine fic also contains that pairing.
You know, I'm honestly not sure where Janet/Charlie comes from, considering that the never even met. Well, except for two seconds with AU Charlie and Janet in POV. Maybe that's it. My reasoning -- I was sad that AU Charlie Mark II died, and I wished that they'd been able to work Janet into the episode. Two birds with one drabble!
