Title/Prompt: 136 – Secret Santa
Pairing/s: Connor / Becker

Connor had asked everyone else so he knew that Abby had to have what he wanted.

“Abby, I need to trade my Secret Santa with you.”

Abby shook her head. “You got Lester and you don’t know what to buy him! I’m not falling for that.”

“I didn’t get Lester, and that’s not the point. I want Becker.” Abby raised an eyebrow at his choice of words. He blushed. “I mean, I need to get him in the Secret Santa. And a bit of the other,” he admitted.

Abby smiled knowingly. “Fine. Here,” she handed over the slip of paper.

Title/Prompt: 173 – Obsession
Pairing/s: Connor / Becker

It was two days until the Secret Santa gift exchange and Abby was about ready to murder Connor. For reasons fathomable only to him, he had decided that he was going to use the gift exchange to make his affections for Becker known. He had found the perfect gift – Abby knew that Becker would love it – but Connor had spent the past week obsessing about it.

If she had to reassure him one more time that yes, the gift was perfect and that Becker would reciprocate his affections and he wasn’t making a fool of himself, she was going to strangle him.

Title/Prompt: 83 – Winter wonderland
Pairing/s: Connor / Becker

The ARC Christmas party was being held in the detector room, so that those who were working or on call could attend as well. All day long, with Lester’s grudging consent, the room had been gradually converted from a dull grey concrete shell to a glittering, fake-snow-covered winter wonderland. Connor looked around at the decorations but he was too nervous to enjoy them as he usually would.

He glanced at his watch; only two hours left until party time. Two hours left until Secret Santa gift exchange time. Two hours, and then he’d know if Becker wanted him.

Title/Prompt: 59 – Joy
Pairing/s: Connor / Becker

Connor watched nervously as Becker unwrapped his present and read the card that accompanied it. It seemed like forever before the other man looked up.

“You mean this?”

Connor nodded his head earnestly. “Yes. I-” he saw the others watching them and felt his cheeks heat up. It was now or never, though. “I like you. More than like, I mean. I’m saying this all wrong.”

Becker smiled. “Don’t worry- your card said it perfectly. I would love to go on a date with you.”

Even the good-natured teasing from the others couldn’t wipe the smile off Connor’s face.

Title/Prompt: 170 – Picture prompt (person taking a photograph)
Pairing/s: Connor / Becker

Becker had accepted his invitation. Connor had hardly dared to believe he would, but Becker had, and in front of everyone.


Connor was snapped out of his daydream by a camera flash. Abby. She was taking pictures, mementos of the party, she said, even if no one outside the ARC would be allowed to see them.

“Connor? Look up,” she told him.


“It is tradition,” Becker pointed out from beside him. “Let’s make the most of it.”

Somewhere, a camera flashed.


The following day, a picture was left on Connor’s desk: Him and Becker kissing under the mistletoe.
