mini-ficlet: Snakes. Why does it have to be snakes?

another from the drabble promts, this one for madscribbles

Title: Snakes. Why does it have to be snakes?
Author: Athene
Fandom: Primeval
Characters: Becker/Abby
Rating: PG                    
Warnings: None
Spoilers: none
Word count: approx 160
Disclaimer: Not mine. ITV and Impossible Pictures own them.
AN: written for cupidandpsycho with the prompt ‘snakes’.


 

            “Close the door! Mabel’s out!”

            “What?” Becker quickly closed the door to Abby’s flat.

            At that moment something brushed against his leg. He looked down and froze.

            Snake! More to the point, a bloody huge snake that was winding its way leisurely up his leg and around his chest. Becker couldn’t so much as twitch. Hell, he barely even dared to breathe. He could only stare in horror as the forked tongue flickered out and tasted the skin at his throat.

            “You found her!” Abby strode over, amusement in her eyes as she manhandled the snake off him and cradled it in her arms. Becker hoped to god she hadn’t heard the tiny squeak that escaped his lips when it was finally gone. For a moment he thought he had got away with it.

            Then Abby leaned close and whispered, “Do I get bonus points if I can get you to make that noise in bed tonight?”

EEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

*squeaks happily*

Damn, I'd love to see the sequel *g*
This was *way* cute :)

bloody hell, woman! You were quick off the mark! I'd barely finished editing it.

I'd never in a million years have thought of this pairing if Fakey hadn't asked for it. Glad you liked, anyway.

Think this is a first appearance for Abby/Becker!

Love it -- and do we get to see if Abby *does* manage the bonus points? *g*

I think it might be a first time. I've just cross posted to Denial and had to ask for an Abby/Becker tag.

No current plans for a sequel, though.

I love that Becker isn't too keen on the snake, lol :D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 21st, 2009 09:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
the bigger and tougher the guy, the more embarrased he is about his phobias. Poor Becker, he wouldn't want anyone to see the dents in his macho image.
joereaves From: joereaves Date: September 21st, 2009 09:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
Poor Becker. Still I'm sure Abby can make it up to him. Maybe. if he can bring himself to relax in a flat with an escapologist snake, which maybe he can't actually lol. I see a lot of weak excuses for 'why don't we go over to my place?' in his future.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 21st, 2009 09:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
yeah, he won't be too keen on hanging around unless he's absolutely sure the snake is shut away in its tank for the night.

btw, I posted the ficlet from your prompt the other day, but I know you've not been online much recently so you probably missed it. Link here:

Hee that was seriously cute! Love the image of Becker being afraid of snakes. hehe
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 21st, 2009 09:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
I bet he'd hate anyone knowing about it as well. He always looks so unruffleable (is that a real word?).
telperion_15 From: telperion_15 Date: September 21st, 2009 09:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
LOL, poor Becker! Even big tough soldiers have to be afraid of something!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 21st, 2009 09:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
yep. With Ryan it was spiders (possibly!), with Becker snakes seemed appropriate for some reason.
reggietate From: reggietate Date: September 21st, 2009 09:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, Hilary, you wuss! :-) Love the tiny squeak.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 21st, 2009 10:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think the little squeak snuck in because of that icon of Fakey's with Becker going, 'meep!', after the ep with the mutant mushroom man (and how many tv shows can you refer to an episode as 'the one with the mutant mushroom man'?!!!).

That's not wussy. If he was *really* wussy he would have screamed like a girl and run around panicking *grin*
talliw From: talliw Date: September 21st, 2009 10:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
LOL
I like Mabel. She should scare Becker more often.:D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 22nd, 2009 05:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee, yes. That should keep him on his toes.
knitekat From: knitekat Date: September 21st, 2009 10:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
Lovely. Especially the bonus points question from Abby. Do we get to see that?
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 22nd, 2009 05:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. No, no sequel! *runs and hides*
jaynedoll From: jaynedoll Date: September 21st, 2009 10:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm glad someone's written Abby/Becker. He always reminded me of Stephen in a way so I always thought Abby probably would fancy him as well.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 22nd, 2009 05:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
he did seem to be there largely to replace Stephen as the action man of the team. I'm slightly surprised that no one else has done Abby/becker before, though.
rodlox From: rodlox Date: September 21st, 2009 10:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
half of Beckett is probably thinking "yes o yes"....two-thirds of Beckett is thinking "dear god, Abby, please don't bring the snake to bed!"

fun drabble! bravo!!


ps: u haz komit'd het! ;)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 22nd, 2009 05:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks,glad you liked. I frequently commit het, it's just usually of the Connor/Abby variety.
madscribbles From: madscribbles Date: September 22nd, 2009 12:54 am (UTC) (Link)
Augh I nearly missed this!! And I had totally forgotten about it. Becker totally meeped, didn't he? So cute. Though, he might not think so LOL.

Thank you LMM&K... *gasp* you managed NOT to maim or kill him. I'm proud!

*glomps*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 22nd, 2009 05:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm not surprised you'd forgotten, it was ages ago since I took the prompts, but then I got hit with huge writers block after doing about four of the prompts, and the rest sat there for ages unfinished.

Glad you liked it (once it eventually got finished). It was definitely inspired by your 'meep!' icon *grin*

Thank you LMM&K... *gasp* you managed NOT to maim or kill him. I'm proud!
Hey! I feel maligned! Did you not see the gratuitous Connor/Ryan fluff fest last week, with not even so much as a paper cut in sight?
auntypam From: auntypam Date: September 22nd, 2009 03:02 am (UTC) (Link)
I loved it:) Becker/Abby Yay!!! Actually I've written some Becker/Abby fiction. But didn't have a tag for them. My "choice's" series was Becker/Abby & Connor/Ryan and then a ficlet "Regrets" I'd put links but don't know how. But they can be found under my author tag:)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 22nd, 2009 05:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, glad you liked. I thought there must have been some Abby/Becker before now, it doesn't usually take too long for someone to try out unusual pairings. Now you mention it I remember that series. I was mostly reading for the Connor/Ryan, so I'd forgotten about the Abby/Becker bits.

Hee, I love cheeky Abby and 'squeaky' Becker.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 22nd, 2009 05:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee, I think he's cute when he squeaks, and I bet Abby agrees. Glad you liked.
fredbassett From: fredbassett Date: September 22nd, 2009 07:41 am (UTC) (Link)
Becker's squeaking like a girlie again! *grins*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 22nd, 2009 05:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
It seems like a perfectly rational response to having a large snake slithering up you body!
