'Never Again', one for slashthedrabble challenge #31 - Gadgets
Pairing: Mulder/Krycek, X-Files
Rating: G
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No harm, no foul, no money made.
Notes: For literati, as always. *smooch*

Never Again

They promised him he'd get used to it eventually, but he never did. They said he'd start to regard it as a part of himself. He didn't. It could grasp a mug, form a fist, and even support his weight, but it could never provide the sensory feedback he craved so very much.

It was just a tool, a necessary evil to get the job done, something that could be used as a weapon if all else failed.

It wasn't just a part of him, it was him - cold, dead, unable to feel the ticklish skin behind Mulder's knees.

Never again.

Yes, this is very concise and sad. But true, I guess.
I'm pass with my drabble this time. The only *gadget* I could think was K's arm and you have already written about it.

literati started angling for an arm drabble as soon as the challenge was posted. The FBI and aliens must have lots of gadgets, but that arm is certainly the one that starts out the most.

Ooh, pretty hurty drabble! I love angsty Krycek!

He does do the hurt thing very well, doesn't he? *g*

Very well written.

Re: Excellent.
Thank you. :D

Krycek has such potential for inner pain and grief and guilt, it makes him wonderful to write.
