Loved, loved, loved this story! I've been watching Becker clips on youtube and checked out the fanfiction for Becker/Linda stories. Yours is the best one I found. Love when Becker shows his caring side. Great job!

I have to admit, i was worried you were going to turn it into a romance. I'm glad you didn't because I just can't see Becker and Linda as a couple.
Yeah, Becker may care about Linda, but he's not one for being overly sentimental. He is at least trying to help, which is good.
Overall, I believe you did a pretty good job with this story. I saw a couple of errors when it came to punctuation, but that's not a big deal. You managed to keep them pretty well in character.
I was kind of hoping to see Reggie and the others in this story, but I suppose it wouldn't match the subject matter. If you're wondering why I summarize things in each chapter, I want to be able to say something more than just "Good Chapter!" I'd rather give a reason why I like it or why I don't.

I'm glad you didn't make her completely helpless. Yes, Linda was terrified, but it didn't mean he wasn't going to defend himself. He just can't seem to take a hint, can he? No wonder Linda didn't want to go out with him.
He's also learning something else: an angry becker can be very dangerous. Well, beyond his usual irritation at the world. Thanks for adding another one of his rants; shows he's in character.

Margaret's right; Linda does have the potential to be a better assistant than she is. She gets away with being lazy and not doing much. I think there was an episode where Margaret was hung over and Linda took care of everything, to her surprise.
| Trevor the Enchanter chapter 6 . 9/15/2010
You know, Linda might try to come up with an excuse, but there's no way Becker would believe it. Of course, she could be hoping that all of this will just go away and disappear; probably what it is.
Except for a couple of minor punctuation mistakes, you're doing pretty well.

It's not easy to call the police; Linda tries to explain it away, thinking he didn't really do anything worth getting arrested for. However, I'm a bit surprised she felt that she wouldn't be believed; that's sadly common in these type of relationships.
You're doing pretty well keeping everyone in character.

I have to admit, it just wouldn't be a Becker story if he didn't rant about anything and everything that annoyed him. He has a point, although I've never been to a Bachelor party.
I'm surprised that Becker was willing to go, but only slightly. Personally, I think he would like to have fun; he just doesn't want to admit it. He was willing to let her spend the night at his place, so you got to figure he does care for her.
Have to admit, i'm sure Miles in coming back; wouldn't be interesting if he didn't.

Yeah, he doesn't seem to want to listen, does he? Linda is usually the one who moves forward, but that doesn't mean she's always willing to do so.
Yeesh, did she really think Becker would buy that? He rants, complains, and ends up doing a fair amount of foolish things, but he's not an idiot. He's intelligent and if he was so inclined, could probably get a job somewhere that's much better paying. Margaret's not an idiot, either.

You're right, it is a little slow, but you do need to set things up.
Personally, considering the kind of people Linda generally dates, I'm surprised she hasn't been in this situation. Most of the people she goes out with are losers, and it fits that she doesn't think anything like that can happen to her. In general, people don't think it can until it actually does; take it from one with experience.

Well, you've kept the people in character so far. Don't worry; I've been interested in a Becker story that's more serious.

I really like his Chapter. Becker gets major brownie points. _
I would write a Becker story myself, but i hardly have time. But if you write another one I'll read if for sure. Especially if Linda's in it. She's my favorite character.
This may be the last review i send to you and it kinda depresses me. But i really liked the whole story and hope you write more. _
| Helen Young chapter 8 . 6/30/2010
I'm actually kinda glad that you didn't put Margaret there during that whole thing. she would've been seen as the awkward character who didn't belong. Great job. I can't wait for the next chapter. and i know what you mean by Becker being a father figure to Linda. :)
Sorry about your father situation.
| Helen Young chapter 7 . 6/23/2010
Poor poor Linda. :( But at least she told Margaret. That was good. I don't care if you have the times messed up. I mess up a lot of little pointless things like that too. :P
Great chapter. Can't wait for the next one(s)

Really great story! I LOVE IT! :-D
Becker was such a great show; I really miss it.
You write the story so well. It's like you were one of the script-writers for the show :-D .

No, you got it right. He'd put it in a split first. In a week or two he'd put it in an actual cast though. If you're going that far into the story. I've never had any broken bones, but my brother had a broken wrist, so yeah.
Really great. I can't wait for the next chapter. Becker gets major brownie points! :P
