Becker didn’t have a death wish. In fact, he actually quite liked being alive. Most of the time.

Mind you, Captain Ryan and Stephen Hart had probably quite liked being alive as well, and yet they had both sacrificed themselves protecting Cutter. Cutter, who had then rather conspicuously died only a few months later on Becker’s watch.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, there was Sarah. And countless soldiers under his command.

Becker didn’t want to die, but if he had to sacrifice himself in the line of duty he would.

Maybe then people might speak his name with respect.

thanks, Becker has far too much guilt, poor baby.

Oh Becker- they do respect you. Lovely look at him, and the others.

thanks. I'm not sure he has a very high opinion of himself after everything that has happened.

Awww, poor Becker, he's too hard on himself.

He's definitely carrying a lot of guilt around, no matter what other people really think of him.

Kristen accused me of going a bit fluffy with my drabbles recently, so there needed to be angst!

OK, this is the D_1 that I know *G*

Poor Becker - the scriptwriters didn't give him much of a hand... We still love him, even when we (you) pour on the angst!

Lol! I still feel the need to maim him soon, after your comment about me going all soft and fluffy. Can't have you spreading scandalous lies like that around!

Aw! Poor Becker! My first reaction was, "Who doesn't speak his name with respect?" Who!

Nice drabble

Meep! That's a huge burden on poor Becker's shoulders.

The poor boy hasn't had a lot of luck since he started working at the ARC.

Oh!! Poor Becker!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 22nd, 2012 09:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
I've been too fluffy recently, so clearly he needed beating with the angst stick.

Oh meep, poor Becker!

*pets poor Becker* You don't need to sacrifice yourself for that to happen!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 22nd, 2012 09:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
The poor boy doesn't have a very high opinion of himself after his track record at the ARC!

They do! They do! :-)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 23rd, 2012 10:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
Poor Becker, he's not had a great track record since he joined the ARC, he wouldn't blame people for thinking badly of him.

Poor Becker!
Lovely angsty!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 23rd, 2012 10:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, glad you liked it. Poor Becker, he's pretty when he's angsty.
fififolle From: fififolle Date: February 25th, 2012 06:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh Becker!! When put like this, you can see why he'd have such a complex.
Poor guy!
Nice work.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 26th, 2012 08:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. Poor Becker and all his angsty guilt, bless him.

Aw, poor Becker.

He does do a very good line in angsty guilt, poor boy.
