Title: Just like you when she smiles
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Don't own them; just borrowing.
Summary: Dear Mr. Ford, you don't know who I am but I know who you are...
Spoilers: through The Last Recruit, just to be safe
Notes: For lost_in_108 #32 reflection. The title is a reference to Kate's description of Clementine in Whatever Happened, Happened. So I merge AU and original!verse. Whatever. It works for me.

When she's eight, she writes him a letter.

Dear Mr. Ford, you don't know who I am but I know who you are...

She never stops looking. She'll send it, someday.

When she's twenty-two, they're interviewing some detective on TV, something about a decades long manhunt for a woman who blew up her father's house. Clem's not really watching, but something catches her eye when the cop flashes a grin, dimples.

It's the same face she sees every morning in the mirror.

She pulls the letter from its place in her wallet, worn, tattered edges. She thinks, now. Finally.

I know you're the reason my momma always cries.

Wow! Now *that's* a flashsideway I'd like to see on Lost. I love the story of Sawyer and Cassidy and wonder how she and Clementine moved on with their lives.

Awesome writing!

Thanks so much! :) I'm so glad you enjoyed this.

I don't know if Clementine exists in the flashsideways world, but I hope she does. I love the story of Sawyer and Cassidy, too.

Yay, Clem! I love it, her own parallel to Sawyer's letter, and a great take on the prompt. :) Only I hope she doesn't plan on killing him, too. :D

I don't see her end goal as murder; just finding him and making him know.

Wow! I've often wondered about poor little Clementine. I liked the inevitability of the revenge cycle. Good job :)

Thank you! I'm glad this worked for you.

I love the idea and the parallels to Sawyer's letter, mixed with the LA!universe.
That's something I'd love to see on the show ...
