Disclaimer: Dexter isn't mine. I want to live, thank you very much.
A/N: It could have been this way.


The cameras in the interrogation room were turned off. Being a cop had its privileges, sometimes.

"Why did you kill those people, son?"

The boy handcuffed to the chair shrugged. "I felt like." There wasn't any fear or defiance in his eyes - the cop had faced down many dangerous criminals, but nobody with eyes so unsettling.

"That's it? You just felt you had to kill them?"

"Yeah, I guess."

"Couldn't you just... control yourself or something?"

The boy frowned. "No. I tried after mom found about the first one and made me promise, but I couldn't. It was something I just had to do, you know what I mean?"

The cop didn't. He rose from his chair tiredly and began walking toward the door.

"One more question," he said, stopping. "Did you have to kill those people, or could it have been anybody?"

The boy shrugged again. "Anybody, I think. Except for my cousin, I didn't know any of them. Why, you want me to kill somebody?" He seemed politely interested.

Harry shook his head. "No, thanks," he said as he left.

Perhaps there was something he could do for his son, after all.

.finis.

In my head, the show is called Harry, and it's about on of the scariest guys I've ever known. He almost out-Alfreds Alfred!

Re: Life's Little Victories.
:D

I'm still finding my way around Dex, though. I had thought Cass was slippery, but Dex... He keeps surprising me.

Ai, God, yet another fandom I'm somehow going to have to learn despite having no access to the original media just so I can fully understand cool stories like this.

Aargh, must Wiki.

*g* Sometimes the only thing that prevents me from thinking fandom is just a big conspiracy by media companies is the fact that then it'd suck.

*does a dance of happy*

This is now canon the end.

Also, I like this kid.

Why, you want me to kill somebody?" He seemed politely interested.

Awesome.

I'm conflicted about writing future!fic (for the series), because, although I haven't read the books, they are still there. I don't want to read them yet, I'm enjoying the twists in the series and don't want to be spoiled, but do I get to ignore them and write as if the books didn't exist and nobody knew where the Ice Truck Killer thing is going to?

Dude, are you kidding? Yes! Just, I don't know, label them AU-for-the-book or something. But definitely write them. And then, when we find out who the killer is in the series, you write about that, too. And then, we have twice as many fic. Do you see how good that is? *beams*
