her black robes trailing  
Title: her black robes trailing
Fandom: LOST
Characters: Jacob
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 108
Summary: Mother always knows best. (prompt - force, written for lost_in_108 )

"So," she says. In the fire her hair glows unnaturally bright, gold as the sun. "You've finally surrendered to fate."

He shouldn't need to prove himself to her, and yet- "It's my choice."

She knows better, knows him better. "Silly Jacob."

"I'm... not afraid to die." (he can already feel the cold metal buried in his chest)

"Of course not, dear," she mocks, fingers ghosting over his cheek. Jacob shudders. In the world he rules, a world that defies science and logic, she is the strange, the unnatural.

She laughs at him, the sound light and bubbly like a fairy.

(like a witch)

"I'll be waiting for you."

So horrifying. The mother's so intriguing, I wouldn't mind seeing more of her--if she can kinda freak Jacob out, automatically interesting (even better if she can freak Esau out too, which I'm guessing would be Jacob's brother).

And some lines make me think of the theory that Jacob=Future!Aaron with the mother's "golden" hair and her bubbly light fairy laugh, and her apparent madness reminding me of Claire....

Thanks, glad you liked it. :) As soon as Smokey had that conversation with Kate, I was fascinated by the concept and got this image of a creepy Christian-and-Claire-in-the-cabin + ancient mythology/imagery kind of woman. I would love to see her on the show.

I'd like to see more of her, too ;) That was great. Creepy and unusual (at least, from what I've read so far), but great.
