Summary: Kate usually watched over own, but she decided he could use her guidance.

"I didn't feel it when it happened. One minute I was there," she gestured vaguely to the open air above his still body, "and the next minute I watched my friends try to move on without me. It's hard."

"I just wanted to stop it from happening. Stop the machines. Stop John from losing everyone around him. Stop my brother from going back in time just to die." He stopped talking and gave a snort. "Guess we're more alike than I ever thought. So what happens now?"

"You can still help. Still fight. I do it with my team. You can do it with them," she said as she gestured at the retreating backs of Sarah, John and Cameron.

"How? I can't touch a damn thing," he practically shouted as he waved his hand through the glass door.

"Practice. It took time, years in fact, but I was able to give something like subliminal suggestions to people. Get them where they needed to be when they needed to be there. I guess we're more of a guardian ghost if you want a name for it."

"So I can help them?"

"That's why you're still down here, Derek. Help them live."


Note: This is a reaction fic to tonight's episode of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. The way Derek was killed... I thought of Kate. And this is what happened when I had that thought. I have more about that SCC episode in my reaction post here: http://kaylashay81.livejournal.com/91824.html

Ooohhhh! Shiny!

I haven't seen the Kate episode yet. *pouts* But I need too apparently.

Yeah... the only difference between his death and her death is that hers was at the very end of the season finale episode. So I'm damn glad that I knew about it, had the third season ready to go... had I been watching when it originally aired, I think I would have gone mad.

Most of my NCIS drabbles are done in less than an hour and sometimes less than 30 minutes. My 100 drabble fic was done in two nights (10,000 words).

I think I actually saw that NCIS episode live, long before I got into the show. I remember my mom being really upset.

I didn't think of Derek's death this way but you are so right about the similarities! Thanks for the daydreams this will bring me tonight. (:

Glad you liked. :-)

My mind is in NCIS mode mostly, so when I saw the bullet hole in the head, my mind went straight to Kate.

Yeah, I didn't find Terminator until after NCIS so I think my mind made some kind of jump. NCIS was my obsession immediately before Terminator (and by obsession I mean I spent 15 hours curled up in front of my grandparents' TV on Dec 27 watching USA's NCIS marathon). Then... well, maybe it was because I watched all the episodes religiously until I'd seen them all that my interest waned? xD

I binge watched NCIS a few summers ago via DVD. With Terminator, I was into the movies long before the show came about.

I'm still working my way through the movies. Because of my hardcore fancrush on Thomas Dekker I spent most of my break rewatching Land Before Time (don't ask), so I only had time to watch the first Terminator movie. Also I'm more of a TV person than a movie person; you can really get into the characters the more you see of them.

The episode where Kate dies was actually the first of NCIS I watched (my mom got me into it), but I went back and watched the DVDs later. And even though I've never seen any kind of terminator, you made the character really work in this. Very nice.

Thanks! Derek (the character from Terminator: tSCC) was killed in the middle of a fight by a terminator who just walked out from around a corner and shot him between the eyes. I (and many others) were not expecting it all. And he just fell. After the show was over, I got to thinking about how it had similarities to Kate being shot by Ari and ran with it.

Glad you liked even if you didn't know the crossover show. :-)

Nice parallel between the two deaths. I started watching after Kate dies so it was never a shocker. I like the idea that they are still watching over their respective friends.

Yeah, I knew Kate died before I watched the ep, so it wasn't a shock. But I could recognize that had I been watching live, it would have been hard...

Glad you liked. :-)
