What happened in between Luke and Reid’s first kiss and their arrival in Oakdale—when did Luke cut his hair, what did Reid think about it, and just how much sexual tension existed in Lucinda’s jet on the ride home? Or what do you think occurred after Luke brushed lint off Reid’s jacket in the Lilypad? Better yet, how do you imagine that Luke and Reid went from an interrupted kiss scene after Reid got punched to being a couple just a few days later? What about after the disastrous Metro date—how did the guys make up? We’ve all wondered about these scenarios and more; maybe some of you have even written a gap-filler or two.
How about filling in all the blanks in those too-short LuRe episodes that ATWT aired? Tell us your best ideas as to what might’ve happened between scenes or episodes that were too short or ended much too soon and abruptly in comments to this post.
Your gap-filler or fix-it fic must be based on this week’s episode or scene and posted below. It can be a sentence, paragraph, or a long, lengthy fic. You may write more than one for the same prompt, and for those of you who wish to write lengthier fics, include a link here if you post elsewhere (your journal or lure_atwt).
If you don't want to write fic, you can simply share your ideas as to what you think should've happened. Discuss what happened in your mind in the comments below.
What were Reid’s immediate thoughts after leaving the hospital that first day he arrived in Oakdale—was he thinking about Luke already, maybe about wanting to kiss him or wanting to kill him? Or is there something else you want to fill in or fix about this episode? Tell us below!
And you can still participate by recommending any awesome fics that filled in the blanks for this specific episode.
A big thanks to scotianova and kccalgal for suggesting this challenge!
