Title: Expectation
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Becker
Rating: PG
Warnings: none
Spoilers: none
Challenge: 275 – Faster, higher, stronger
Word count: 100
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.




Faster, higher, stronger, tougher, better exam results, more constructive after school activities.

He tried. He really did. All those hours studying and training. Rehearsing for the role of the man Becker knew he was expected to become.

Every photo, medal and trophy in the house was a reminder of the achievements of previous generations. A challenge to be met.

And yet, the overriding memory of his childhood was his father’s disappointment.

All of which had taught Hilary Becker one thing; it would not be enough to simply meet his father’s expectations, or to equal him.

He had to be better.

Poor Becker. Horrible Becker father. Where is the queue for Becker hugs? :-)
Good one, rings very true.

Poor Becker indeed. Maybe one day someone will write a fic where Becker has a happy, loving, supportive relationship with his father. Although it probably won't be me! *evil grin*

(You'd better make it a quick hug, there's a queue building up!)

Thanks. We all seem to have collectively decided he has issues with his father!

Nice stuff.

I enjoy being mean to Becker almost as much as I enjoy being mean to Connor! *evil laugh*

Oh, poor Becker. I can just imagine him trying so hard to be the best, to prove himself to his father. Very nicely done.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 16th, 2012 07:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. I can definitely see him coming from that sort of background, and being driven to excel.

Awww. Poor Becker. He's a success. He just doesn't know it. *Pats him*

Thye poor boy has far too much background angst for his own good!

Poor Becker *hugs him*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 16th, 2012 07:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
He needs lots of hugs, I think, although there does seem to be a rather long queue!
