Chapter: 01 "Falling Is Like This"
Fandom: Television – Lost
Disclaimer: If I owned Lost, Ana Lucia would not be dead. And she and James Ford would have plenty of Mad!Hot!Jungle!Sex. And it would be on HBO. "Falling is Like This" belongs to Ani Difranco, her muses, her record company or whatever entity it is that takes credit for such things.

Summary: Three little words. So many possibilities. Chapter 01: It's an awkward start for someone who's never admitted to having feelings for anything.
Author's Note: I love this 'ship. I hate that it never really got the chance it deserved. Here are a few different scenarios of how Ana Lucia and Sawyer just might have told one another that they love each other. I've tried to make it so that they kind of flow together, but they're not necessarily part of one larger story. In fact, if I've done this right, then the situations in each chapter can stand by itself. So, take each chapter as a variation of the same thing, or vignettes in one big piece of fluff. Chapter 01: While the whole fic is in third person, this chapter is from Sawyer's point of view, and strongly so. The portions in italics are his inner thoughts, but even the narration suggests that it's what might be going through his mind. Except the song. It's an Ani Difranco song, and I hardly think Sawyer's an Ani Difranco fan, but this one just suits them so perfectly, I couldn't let it go.
