Heroes - Niki

[Heroes] [Peter/Niki] we'll burn it bright before we fall - one shot

Title: we'll burn it bright before we fall
Fandom: Heroes
Rating: PG-13
Length: 3,081 words including notes, one shot
Character/Pairing: Peter/Niki, following the whole ep and all. Mentions of various others.
Warnings: Spoilers for 1x20 Five Years Gone. Really, it won't make sense without it.
Summary: ‘There’s no turning away from what you don’t want to know.’ Peter, Niki, and seven moments in five years.

Written with knowledge only up to Five Years Gone, so I’ve done a bit of extrapolating here. I wanted to fill in what the episode left out, and this is what I came up with.

Lyrics are from Vienna Teng’s ‘Hope on Fire.’ Had no idea how much that song fit what I was writing until I was searching for a title.

Major thanks to Dex (biases) for sitting through this and pointing out all of the iffy parts. Comments and the like are adored. And by the way, nope, haven’t seen anything past 2x20 (though whatever happens, I won’t be surprised), so spoiler-free comments would be awesome too. :D
