Title: Blinded By Love
Author: Shona aka Mara
Rating: PG
fic_variations Prompt/Claim: Sane/Insane - Ben (Dark Angel)
Spoilers: Pollo Loco
Warnings: n/a
Author's Notes: Not my sandbox. Lydecker saw the signs.

Even back at Manticore there had been signs. Ben had never been quite… right. Eyes a little too bright, always a little too keen.

Classic sociopath.

They labelled him and thought they could channel it. Focus the madness into duty. Into the mission.

Donald's eyes tracked the scrawled messages on the walls. Duty. Mission.

Had they done this? Had they driven Ben to this? Had he?

He'd covered up what the boy had done, trying to find him before it happened again. Before the madness really took hold. But in the end, like always, he'd failed one of his kids.

fic_variations Prompt/Claim: Sane/Insane - Ben (Dark Angel)
Spoilers: Pollo Loco
Warnings: n/a
Author's Notes: Not my sandbox. Max thinks it was like looking in a mirror, but what does that mean?

The city was full of crazies. The pulse had driven lots of people out of their minds and they all shared that look in their eyes. Like they could see right through you.

Max hugged her knees and looked down at the city. It was the first time she'd come back since tracking him here. Since she'd seen his eyes and seen the truth.

Looking into his eyes had been like meeting her own in the mirror. He hadn't had that look.

But what did that mean? She wasn't crazy, she knew that, but that meant then… neither was Ben.

fic_variations Prompt/Claim: Sane/Insane - Ben (Dark Angel)
Spoilers: Pollo Loco
Warnings: n/a
Author's Notes: Not my sandbox, I'm just playin' here. It's been three weeks since Ben came into their lives - and left - and Logan's not worried. Really, he's not worried.

Three weeks without a word. Three weeks since she'd found and lost another of her family. Three weeks since he'd sold his soul to Lydecker. Three weeks since Ben.

Logan wasn't worried. She could be anywhere, doing anything, but that wasn't new. The fear though; that was.

Her brother was a killer. Clearly psychotic as a result of genetics and 'upbringing'. Both of which she shared.

Yes, Logan was scared. Not of her. Never of her.

For her.

She would think the same things and she wouldn't see past them. She would blame herself.

She would see herself in Ben.

*squishes*

I always thought there was so much more that could be done with Lydecker - from about Pollo Loco on when he got to square off against Renfro we started to see the side of him that really did seem to care about 'his kids' and I wish that had been explored more.

Too fragile to begin with.
Exactly - Each of the 09ers learned to deal with being out in the world in their own way and not one of them did it successfully. They all broke in one way or another, it's just that when Ben broke it was in an unpredictable way that dragged in everyone he encountered.

I love your Ben stuff, very much. so broken though.
I probably shouldn't say this because you probably will be calling Carstairs, but writing Ben - or writing about Ben - is cathartic in a way. He's not crazy, everything he does makes perfect sense, it's just that the rest of the world doesn't see it that way. Isn't that how we all feel from time to time?

*squishes you some more*

Thank you honey!

Thank you honey! It's actually fun to write someone as broken as Ben to be honest, it hurts in a good way if that makes sense? (and doesn't make you think I'm some kind of sociopathic freak who hunts people and pulls their teeth out... *g*)

Ooh, nice. Really like what you did with Lydecker, and I came close to almost feeling a twinge of sympathy for Max.

Man, DA is such a weird fandom for me, its one of the only shows I've totally hated the lead character and watched for *cough* supporting cast members *cough*

Thank you! I always thought there should have been more development to Lydecker - maybe if they'd not been cancelled there would have been?

I too kinda hated Max from time to time - especially in her treatment of Ben, Alec and even Sketch. She was so damn self-centred most of the time and was the kind of person who put everyone else down so that she could feel better about herself.

It's odd to be in a fandom where the main character annoys you so much isn't it?!
