            Becker isn’t a great tracker, but he doesn’t need to be to read the story written in the mud.

            Connor’s trail suggests he was running in a relatively straight line, occasionally jinking left or right.

            The other prints are those of a creature; three-toed, and, Becker thinks, bipedal. They are huge.

            Both sets of tracks disappear right in front of the anomaly.

            They all know the rules.

            Becker turns to his men. “Nobody else goes through this anomaly. Nobody. Especially not Abby Maitland.”

            Then Becker disobeys his own order, praying he’ll find more than just footprints on the other side.

Aw, Becker! You know rules are there to be broken.

Lovely drabble :)

I can't see Becker knowingly leaving someone on the other side, no matter what the rules.

Oh, Becker! I so understand your decision.
Come back with Connor with both of you in one piece, please.

*fingers crossed he finds Connor in time*

Ooh . . . Trust Becker to break his own rule *g*. Eek!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 7th, 2011 08:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
Becker probably thinks he's allowed to put *himself* in danger when necessary, but he won't let anyone else if he can help it.

I'm sure Becker will find him in time. He might only be *slightly* hurt... perhaps *evil grin*

OH! Oh no. I hope Becker and Connor will be OK. And good luck to the soldiers trying to hold Abby back!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 7th, 2011 08:52 pm (UTC) (Link)
yeah, it's actually the poor soldiers who have been left behind and told to stop Abby that I feel sorry for. They probably have the harder of the two jobs!

Oh cripes! Poor Connor! I'm sure Becker will bring him back. Good luck to the lads stopping Abby *veg*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 8th, 2011 05:43 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well just have to hope Becker finds Connor in time! And yes, I don't envy the soldiers trying to hold Abby back when she finds out!

Meep! Good for Becker knowing when to break the rules and I hope he finds those tracks.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 8th, 2011 05:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, Becker wouldn't just leave someone trapped, no matter what the rules.

Heh. He would......
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 8th, 2011 05:45 pm (UTC) (Link)
Of course he would! Thanks.

I love the way he leaves a special order for Abby!

Great drabble!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 8th, 2011 05:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think it's going to take the entire squad of soldiers to hold Abby back when she finds out!

*whimpers*

Great drabble!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 8th, 2011 05:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. I was in the mood for a little light maimage and peril, and Connor and Becker didn't get out of the way fast enough *evil grin*

Love that Becker doesn't hesitate to go after Connor. His bravery is a very admirable trait.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 9th, 2011 10:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
Becker is both brave and stubborn, especially when it comes to keeping his team safe.
cordeliadelayne From: cordeliadelayne Date: August 8th, 2011 10:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
Aw, go Becker!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 9th, 2011 10:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
Becker to the rescue!
reggietate From: reggietate Date: August 9th, 2011 10:16 am (UTC) (Link)
Them's as makes the orders, can break the orders ;-) Good for Becker!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 9th, 2011 10:18 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think that's pretty much what Becker was thinking as well :-)
lsellersfic From: lsellersfic Date: August 9th, 2011 11:19 am (UTC) (Link)
Go Becker!!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 9th, 2011 10:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
He may have been running low on his heroics quota for the week :-)
aylabones From: aylabones Date: August 9th, 2011 03:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
*sighs* My hero...I can totally see it happening in the show, it´s so Becker: despite the orders, he couldn´t stand leaving Connor to their fate, but without risking anyone´s like except his. Go, Becker! and return both whole and alive.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: August 9th, 2011 10:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, definitely. He wouldn't leave people in danger, but at the same time wouldn't let anyone *else* put themselves in danger to help with the rescue. Glad you liked it.
