Common Tropes in Fanworks
- Angst of Shaun watching Desmond lose grip on his sanity, and later grieving Desmond's death
I ship Desmond and Shaun together with a burning passion, though I feel their relationship was all angst, and some comic relief in between. [...] He regrets letting Desmond die in the fullest, because part of him died that day as well.
He lost a significant amount of self worth over the course of the loss he’s been dealing with, and he knows it’s not his fault, but his body still thinks it is.
