Pulling out the big guns

 

 

Matt found Becker in the armoury, looking at the Muscular Disrupter weapons with vague distaste.

 

“Still not convinced?”

 

Becker jumped slightly at his voice and turned. “I know they work, but…”

 

“I could shoot you again, if you’re still undecided,” Matt offered, biting back a smile as Becker shook his head.

 

“I think I can live without that,” Becker told him. “I’ve still got a headache from the last time.”

 

“So what’s the problem?”

 

Becker wouldn’t meet his eyes this time, shrugging his shoulders. “I don’t know. I just, well, I miss my shotgun.”

 

Matt couldn’t help the laugh from emerging this time when he saw the embarrassed look on the soldier’s face. He picked up one of the weapons from the case nearest to him, one of the smaller pistols, and weighed it in his hands thoughtfully before running his index finger along the barrel. He could see Becker’s eyes following his finger as it stroked along the smooth outer casing, see the slight hitch in his breath. He’d seen Becker do the exact same thing countless times when he thought no one was looking, petting that shotgun with the same care he would a lover. Something which Matt had also experienced first hand a few weeks earlier. 

 

“I think we all know how much you miss that Mossberg,” he said, strolling toward Becker. As he approached, Becker looked up at him, leaning back against the work surface. “But you know,” Matt continued, pausing just in front of Becker, “you’ll get used to these.”

 

Becker’s eyes widened slightly as the tip of the gun’s barrel touched his collarbone. He watched as Matt trailed the barrel slowly down his chest, seeing the smile on the other man’s lips.

 

“These can be just as much fun,” Matt told him.

 

As the barrel came to rest at Becker’s belt, he looked up, meeting Matt’s eyes. The other man grinned wickedly.

 

“See what I mean?”

 

Becker shivered slightly, imagining all the things that grin promised, and hooked his fingers into the lapels of Matt’s jacket, pulling him closer and claiming his mouth in a heated kiss. Matt eased the gun out from between them, where it was pressed between their bodies, and set it aside before returning the kiss.

 

---------

 

At her desk in the control centre of the ARC, Jess frowned at the little red dots on her screen. They were almost on top of one another, their little labels almost blocking each other out. She tapped a few keys and the camera feed from the armoury appeared on her screen instead of the tracking map.

 

Well that wasn’t what she was expecting, though it did explain a few things. Seeing Lester emerging from his office she shut the feed down again, but not before pressing the record button.

 

 

------

End.

Thank you! This particular bunny wouldn't leave me alone until I'd written it.

Love your kitten icon, by the way.

nd i can just see this as an outtake to keep the episode pre-watershed.

Yeah, it's Primeval, not Torchwood.


Damn :(

Ooooh! Yes. Yes this definitely happened. *g* And go Jess!

Definitely, and I shouldn't think it'll be the last time either...

Oh yes, thoes new guns have possibilities *g*

And naughty Jess - but really, she's got the right idea!

Well, Becker does like his guns...

Sensible Naughty Jess! ;)

I could hear Matt's voice really clearly in this.

Thanks. I was a bit wary of writing Matt since I'd not seen much of him yet so I'm glad it worked.

Oh, Matt, you devil. *g* Boys and their guns. Guh. And I actually like your Jess here, bravo! I bet she'll be raffling that video off on an office pool or something.
ebonyfeather
Jan. 3rd, 2011 11:44 pm (UTC)
Yep, Matt's going to be fun *g*

As for Jess raffling the recording, I could see her doing that! (Noooo! That's sparked an idea and the bunnies have started ganging up on me again...)

Hee. You know, it's so much easier to take Jess seriously when she's not after Becker's arse. *g* She could be a good partner-in-crime/potential embarrassment for Matt/Becker, though. Or if my little heart got its wishes, Danny/Becker. (or Matt/Becker/Danny? *g*)
ebonyfeather

Now I was thinking of Becker/Matt/Connor but it could be interesting with Danny...

Ooh, niiiiice! I can see I'm going to get very fond of this pairing *g*. And please can we all have a copy of Jess's tape? *bg*
ebonyfeather
Jan. 3rd, 2011 11:45 pm (UTC)
I think we'd all pay for a copy of that tape! I think I'm going to like this pairing too.

Loved this! And I am a little jealous of Jess, hehe.
ebonyfeather
Jan. 4th, 2011 06:49 pm (UTC)
Thank you! And I think we'd all like to be in Jess's place.

Mmmm, I'm sure this happened (and Jess has the evidence).
ebonyfeather
Jan. 4th, 2011 06:50 pm (UTC)
Now if only we could get hold of that evidence ourselves...

She'd make tons of money from us lot - that's probably how she can afford that flat (nods) *g*

ebonyfeather

Thanks! I think I'm going to like the newbies- Jess seems like she could be fun.

Oh!

Very nice *happy sigh*

Also I'm willing to pay lots for a copy of that video ;)
ebonyfeather
Jan. 4th, 2011 06:51 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I'm sure if we give them time there'll be even more interesting bits of surveillance footage as well...

Om nom nom! Definitely warming to the new guns now!

Glad you liked it.

Mmmm, nice :) I miss the Mossberg as well. *g* It's way sexier than the new guns.

ebonyfeather
Jan. 4th, 2011 06:57 pm (UTC)
The new guns definitely aren't as cool as the shotgun, but if there's still a hot bloke in body armour carrying them, we'll hardly notice... *g*

Ooh, I like a smart Jess. *g*
ebonyfeather
Jan. 4th, 2011 06:57 pm (UTC)
I think I'm going to rather like Jess- she could be fun.

Now I'm not one for slash in general. It has to be really special for me to like it. In primeval, I can't explain it but Matt and Becker just screamed out to me. Not only are they both gorgeous but they are so together! Jess is not Becker's type AT all. ugh!

This little fic certainly explains it all. I enjoyed it a lot! May have to get round to writing one myself.
ebonyfeather

Thanks!

Matt and Becker are just begging to be slashed in this, especially with their scenes in this episode. They're just so great together.

Jan. 16th, 2011 08:18 pm (UTC)

That they are. It's just a shame that there aren't that many fics of these guys...but that could change. *fingers crossed.*

poor Becker misses his shotgun, lol! And naughty Jess!

Love your icon! Becker and his shotgun...

Thanks for reading.

I had an urge to go find Matt/Becker today and thus I read this, and I think I'm now sold on the pairing! They just seem to go so well together. I love embarrassed Becker admitting he misses his shotgun, poor boy, and Jess at the end made me laugh.

Thanks! The do make a good pair- they've become one of my favourite pairings to write now.

Glad you enjoyed it.
