Summary: Sylar deals with the day after.
A/N:  Written because [ profile] thewatchmaker's fic (writing as [ profile] italianeaglesct) about Peter, Sylar and Angela made the bunnies nibble.

I look at Peter, smiling sadly.  “I’ve been trying so hard Peter, you’d be so proud of me.  Even when things get hard, I don’t slip back into old habits.  It’s been hard too; nothing seems to be going right.”

There’s no answer though and I sigh.  “I know, that’s no excuse but you can’t blame me, can you?  All those years of being rejected, of being told I wasn’t good enough.  You were the only one that ever believed in me.”  I feel the warm rain on my face and I drop my chin to my chest, to keep it off my face.  Not that it does much good, the drops slide down my cheeks and drip off my chin.

The silence is almost deafening and I just want to hear him say anything but he won’t.  “Wish you’d say something.”  I tell him softly but he can’t, not anymore.  “I miss you.”  Wiping away the salty rain falling down my face, I put a hand on the piece of granite in front of me.

“We knew this day would come, eventually, I just thought we could’ve found a way to get around it.  I was wrong.  I couldn’t fix this and I hate it.”  My heart feels heavy in my chest and I have to swallow around the lump in my throat.  “I’d trade places with you if I could.”

This time I don’t hold back.  It’s not like there’s anyone here to see me, not anyone that matters.  Kneeling down, I put a hand to the brown earth and watch as green grass covers the ugliness.  “Love you Peter.”  I whisper, standing up.  In front of his name is the only green spot in this desolate area and the sobs rack my body.  This green will never die, never fade and that’s the way it should be.

After awhile, I finally get myself under control again.  “I can’t join you Peter but I’ll do the next best thing.  Maybe in our next life, things will be better.”  Looking out over the city, I take one last look, trying to remember all the good times we had together.

Taking a last breath, I port into the nothingness.

*crying* Oh god. I hate thinking about this from either POV. Peter needs regen, dammit. He does not get to die and leave Sylar alone.

I know, I'm sorry! *hugs* It was just that one line in your fic that made the bunnies nibble and they wouldn't leave me alone. Peter has to get regen permanently because there's no way in hell Sylar's going to lose him like that.

It is my mission in all my 'verses to make sure that happens. Because other than Shades' Sylar they all like Peter.

Which works for me because there's no way in hell I'd want either of them to lose the other.

I think that's the only place they don't like each other, which is fun.

Our Future boys hate each other big time on Redux which is a blast because they have regen to torture each other forever. LOL

Oh yeah. LOL That's true. And chances are that won't change either. Which is great. :D

Depending on your definition of canon, this might be useful:

Peter would not have to get the ability. Whoever has it can transfer life energy into other people or objects just as they can take it away, reversing or accelerating their aging.

Leona Mills is out there ... somewhere. I'm sure Sylar would love to pay her a visit. Noah Bennet wouldn't mind seeing her gone.

Thanks for the info. :D Not sure I'd use that tho. I might be reading it wrong but I get the impression it doesn't last long. Regen works better. *grins*

Just trying to be helpful. Because a world that doesn't have Peter in it to moderate and temper Sylar is not a world Noah wants his Claire to be in. (Of course if he thought Sylar would take care of that issue for him the next day then... well... Noah's always been a bastard.)

LOL Very true. I don't want a world where Peter's not there to temper Sylar either. Noah would really not like it.

Woah, I don't even know how to properly comment on this. It was amazing, and moving.

I especially liked how you alluded to Sylar crying. And then allowed him to completely break down. Just beautiful. But the last line...

Thank you for posting this. Love your Sylar.

Thanks so much! I'm glad you really liked it, especially the last line.

I figured he wouldn't want to admit he was crying but the loss was just too much for him to handle so he'd break down.
