Title: Trapped
Fandom: Simon Spector
Prompt: #28, Free Association
Rating: PG13
Warnings: Nobody is nice in this universe.
Summary: You can never win by following the rules.
Word Count: A hundred.


"You will save us," said Christos over the roar of the falling plane. "Probably die along the way, but that's the way you are, isn't it?"

Simon took the only parachute and left the cockpit. Christos tried and failed to follow him. "You are bluffing, Simon. There are more than a hundred people in this plane. You would never abandon so many innocents."

"I've been hacking airlines and tourism agencies for two weeks, Christos, moving around flights and passengers. There's no-one innocent in this plane."

Simon jumped from the falling plane, dooming more than a hundred people to certain death.

.finis.

... My inner Slade just said, with a certain note of respect, "Nice work."

Ah, I was wondering what you were going to do with this scene.

It was a difficult scene to avoid.

If I figure out how, I'd like to tackle the consequences of Simon's mistake. They are likely to have been terrible.

Ahahahahahahaha, awesome. The only way this could be any better was if he made a mistake along the way and there were innocents there. *beams*

I'm running out of comments to make - there are only so many variations on "awesome" anyone can devise - but brilliance such as this deserves recognition.

This is one of your best. And that's saying something.
