          His father’s stories were always of soldiers and heroes and family history. The Falklands and the Somme were as familiar to the boy as Narnia was to his school-friends.

            Once, he dared to interrupt a story about his grandfather.

            “Please Daddy, can you read from my book instead?”

            His father eyed the spaceship on the cover, and tossed it aside.

            “Fantasy rubbish,” he declared dismissively. “I won’t have you wasting your time with this kind of thing.            

The little boy knew better than to argue. There was no room for childish daydreams in the Becker household.

Only soldiers and heroes.

*wibbles* That's spot on what I imagine Becker's home life to have been like...

Yes, he does give that impression, doesn't he? Poor little mini Becker.

Awww, poor Becker. I can imagine his childhood being like that. *hugs him*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 21st, 2010 07:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
I can't put my finger on why, but he really does give the impression of coming from a very strict military family.

Poor Becker. Yep, I can see that as his family background.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 21st, 2010 07:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
definitely, poor little boy.

Poor little mini-Becker and his daydreams of being an astronaut.
knitekat From: knitekat Date: March 21st, 2010 06:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
*hugs poor Becker* and certainly possible in his background.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 21st, 2010 07:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't know why but he really does seem the type to have come from that kind of background.

Little mini-Becker definitely needs hugs.
lukadreaming From: lukadreaming Date: March 21st, 2010 06:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
That's totally how I imagine Becker's father to be!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 21st, 2010 07:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Isn't it funny how we've all come to the conclusion that he's from a military family background, based on practically no canon evidence whatsoever.

Oh, poor Becker :-( Excellent drabble.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 21st, 2010 07:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. Little mini-Becker needs a hug, I think.

Awww, poor thing. And then he ends up working in sci-fi.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: March 22nd, 2010 01:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
yep, lots of adventure and sci-fi eventually, just not when he was little.
