“Becker, not that I’m ungrateful, but why?”

Matt looked a little bewildered by all his Christmas presents, piled neatly beside the discarded wrapping paper.

“I imagine toys weren’t a high priority when you were a child,” Becker explained. “Every boy should have lego and toy soldiers at some point in their lives.”

Matt’s expression wavered between sad and stunned for a moment. Then a smile appeared, and Becker found himself being thoroughly hugged.

Twenty minutes later, Becker’s army of medieval knights (with tanks) were laying siege to Matt’s half-constructed lego space station and its Napoleonic infantry defence force (with miniguns).

Aww, great use of the prompt. So nice of Becker to realise Matt didn't have a carefree childhood.

For some reason this prompt made me think of Matt rather than any other charatcer, I have no idea why.

Aww, nice to see Becker realising Matt never had a childhood. Hee over Becker and his tanks ;)

I think Becker is determined to let Matt have some fun and make up for lost time.

Nice, and everyone should have lego!

Definitely! Everyone needs to have a big box full of mis-matched assorted lego, I think it's a rule of the universe!

There were originally pirates and roman centurions involved as well, but they had to go to fit the word count, unfortuntely.

That's fab! I love the image of them playing at the end.

I can just see them pushing all the furniture back to make space, and having huge battles on the living room floor with all their armies.

That's lovely tho I bet Becker is a bad loser and pouts a lot *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: December 18th, 2011 08:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm sure Matt can think of a few ways to make Becker stop pouting, even if he does lose.

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeee - Love the image of the boys playing with their toys (glad Becker got his tanks, and he was so sweet to think of this for Matt)!

It is a rather fun image, isn't it? I bet Becker still has all his toy soldiers from when he was little.
