Drabble: Bad Days


Written for the primeval100 The Armoury drabble challenge.

Title: Bad Days
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Becker
Rating: PG
Warnings: none
Spoilers: none
Challenge: 269 – The Armoury
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.




With the armoury now filled with EMDs, all the real guns had been stacked into a couple of containers and shoved into the far corner of the room.

But not entirely forgotten.

On the bad days, when he needs to unwind, Becker waits until everyone else has gone, and then he drags the containers out and unlocks them.

He settles down for a few hours and takes each gun apart, checks it over, and performs basic maintenance. His shotgun, of course, receives more than simply ‘basic’ maintenance.

Job done, he locks them all away again.

Until the next bad day.

Oooh, that's a rather lovely picture of Becker finding solace in his guns.

thanks. I think he would find the auto-pilot act of gun maintenace to be a good way of winding down and regaining control.

Aww, Becker. Lovely imagery.

thanks!

That's really lovely. Just because the EMDs are there, Becker has to make all will work on the bad day...or he'll never forgive himself.

Good stuff. :)

definitely. He needs to know the real guns still work if necessary, just in case.

Nice image of Becker and his gun porn!

thanks, although it really wasn't meant to be gun porn, lol!

Aww, that's a great look at Becker trying to wind down after a bad day.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 3rd, 2012 06:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. I think he would find it relaxing, bless him.

I love this, it's nice to see that Becker didn't entirely give up on real weapons. :-)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 3rd, 2012 06:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. Yes, I can't see him ever giving up the real guns, no matter what.

Aww, I can just picture him sitting there, surrounded by his guns as he cleans them all and puts them back.

Lovely drabble.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 3rd, 2012 07:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. Yes, it is a rather nice image of him, isnt it? *pets Becker and leaves him alone with his guns*

I really like this routine that Becker has on bad days.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 3rd, 2012 07:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, I can just see him doing this as a way to unwind.

Very real and true to character I think.

Becker is a soldier.

Well done!!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 3rd, 2012 07:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks! A good soldier always looks after his weapons.

thanks.

*hugs Becker*

great drabble
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 3rd, 2012 07:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks! I think he needs a hug.

"Oh, good, tazers." Poor Becker never did quite like those "toy guns" so I can so see him quietly taking the guns apart and cleaning them. I think he needs massive amounts of hugs and reassurance that once again, there will be creatures that are immune to the EMD's and he'll get to retrieve the real weapons. lol
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 3rd, 2012 07:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
No, I think he still loves his real guns too much, and EMDs will never replace them properly as far as he's concerned. And he *always* needs hugs!
natchris From: natchris Date: July 3rd, 2012 02:18 am (UTC) (Link)
Yes, guns would be Becker's safe place......

Terrific idea!!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 3rd, 2012 07:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
definitely! Thanks.

We all need a refuge

*holds Becker's hand*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 3rd, 2012 07:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm pretty sure this would be Becker's refuge.
dreamer_98 From: dreamer_98 Date: July 3rd, 2012 03:17 am (UTC) (Link)
Nice! It seems like something Becker would do to make himself better, to clean and repair his old guns.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: July 3rd, 2012 07:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
It does seem a very Becker-ish thing, and I think he;d want to be sure the real guns still worked as well, just in case.
