Summary: Season 6 AU, starting from "Sundown." Sayid runs into Richard before he can try to kill the man that wears John Locke's face.
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Sayid/Richard, Jacob/Richard, Ensemble
Notes: For zelda_zee at the 2010 Lost Luau at lostsquee. Attempt at sticking only with Sayid's POV in this fic. I don't even remember if Sayid ever got Richard's name when he saved him from Keamy or since then, so early on I'm just gonna assume Sayid doesn't have that info yet. And I'm gonna assume Sayid hasn't seen the Black Rock in person before. And I'm just…gonna assume a bunch of things and rely on Lostpedia and rely on my own memory. Title from the Goo Goo Dolls' song of the same, and a play on canon dialouge between Sayid and Ben from "Sundown." Fake-cut below reads out lyrics from the Goo Goo Dolls' song.
Disclaimer: I don't own anything related to Lost.
So stand on the edge with me, hold back your fear, and see nothing is real til it's gone
