Life on Mars (Sam & Gene stare)

never caught a glimpse

Title: never caught a glimpse
Fandom: Life on Mars
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2,850 words.
Notes: Sam/Gene angst, set 1987. Title from ‘Changes’ by David Bowie. Part one in the Changes Series. Written for the 'music' challenge over at 1973flashfic.
Warning: Prior character death. Overtones of dubious consent.
Summary: It’s bizarre, Gene thinks, as he stares at the kid on stage. How little some people change. This kid, with his serious demeanour and his awkward stance, he’s familiar in ways he shouldn’t be.
