Why This Must Be Read:
I wasn't a big fan of this show at all until I read this wonderful story. It reads like an episode of the show and the characterization is so perfect it's a little scary. It's funny, sexy, touching, and romantic without being too sentimental. If you're on the fence about this pairing, I think this story could change your mind. I know I believed Jack and Allison were destined by the time I finished reading it.
Carter paused and listened to the sound of her breathing on the other end of the line. “Allison I—“he hesitated, the words stuck in his throat. He’d almost told her. He wanted to tell her. He was just….
“You what Jack?”
“I just wanted to say have a good night.”
Carter heard the distinct click of her disconnecting, and lowered the phone down in front of him, frowning down at the dark screen. “Right,” he whispered. “Carter!” He looked up at the sound of Jo’s voice. She jogged towards him, her face rigid with annoyance.
“Yeah Jo,” Carter said as he closed the distance between them.
“We got a problem. None of Henry’s tools are working. The gelatin keeps spontaneously regenerating every time he tries to cut Fargo out. The only thing we can do is try to melt it down, which could take over an hour.”
He shrugged. ““So what’s the problem? Just light him up and---“
“Fargo has to pee.”
Carter’s mouth slammed shut with surprise. “Oh,” he said. His face wrinkled with disgust as he pictured the result of such an attempt while suspended in the middle of an eight foot tall mound of jelly. “Oh—that’s—that’s just gross.”
