Written for the Alphabet Drabble Meme. 100 words exactly.
Prompt: Epic, Lost, Desmond/Penny
Requested by: [ profile] turquoisetumult

Penny collected degrees in physics and English, graduated with highest honors, and made her family proud. Her father preferred to talk up the first; he considered her interest in literature to be frivolous in comparison. But both degrees became very useful, years later, when she searched the globe relentlessly for her man. She pored over science texts, looking for an island hidden from record, how a man might know in 1996 where he would be in 2004. And she clung to stories of lovers gone through epic battles and traumas, and come out again together.

And they didn't fail her.

Aww, Chica, this was perfect!!! I love the dichotomy of her physics and English majors and how they both helped her find her way to her one true love, both in technicality and in hopes and dreams and, ultimately, determination. Wonderful!!!

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it. I love the contradiction of how Penny made it through Desmond's missing years with both the totally irrational hope that he would be okay and the completely pragmatic way she went about trying to find him.
