a conversation; hackable

[ The sounds of the voices on the phone are quiet and muffled, almost far away. But the two men they belong to are familiar to anyone in Mayfield. ]

Insults, at this stage? Come now, Evan, there's no call for that. If I'm a coward, then what, exactly, does that make you? Oh, yes, you were quite the brave hero, right up until you decided you couldn't win.

How did that turn out for you, again?

Enough, enough... I'm sorry. That was uncalled for.

I don't hate you, Evan. I just wish you hadn't been so stupid. You had it all, and then you threw it all away, and for what? For Achewood?

For God's sake, Evan, I know you loved her once, but the thing you 'mercy' killed last week wasn't her. She- it- was a just a drone, a broken shell, a fragment. The only reason it was being kept around at all was because of his mad obsession with the woman it used to be. That's what you sacrificed yourself for? Your power, your position, just to spit in his eye like that? Why, Evan?

You really want to know? Fine. ...because she asked me to.

[identity profile] 2011-07-18 05:19 am (UTC)(link)
...I see.

Well, I hope it was worth it, Evan. We filled her slot- we had to make do with what we had. It's not quite the same, but it'll do.

As for you, though...

The Doctor, then? Why am I not surprised.

I'll... suggest he make it quick. Out of respect for your past few years of service.

Don't. I'm not Grey. I don't deserve what he got. This has been a long time coming, Bill. I'm... done. With all of this. Make it fast, make it slow, I don't give a damn anymore. I only want one thing now.

[identity profile] 2011-07-18 05:23 am (UTC)(link)

And what would that be, Evan?

[identity profile] 2011-07-18 05:24 am (UTC)(link)
When it's over... when I'm gone, and you've got a replacement for me, and everything's settled down again... I want you to find a mirror and look at yourself. Not the way you are now, the real you. I want you to stare your real self in the eye, and I want you to ask yourself if you're happy doing this.

[There is a long, long silence.]


...Goodbye, Evan.
