Summary Father and son disagree
Author's Note Here we are again! I'm really looking forward to posting all these, it gives me a lovely routine! Anyways, another mention for the first number of these drabbles will centre around Matt. Word up to fififolle  and to  deinonychus_1   Enjoy!  

“It’s time that you left.”

Matt didn’t like that. He agreed with his father on a lot of things, but certainly not about this. Matt wasn’t ready to leave his friends and become a civilian.

“You’ve gained a vast array of skills, Matthew. Being in the service has helped you greatly, but now it’s time to broaden your horizons. I need you back.”

Matt shook his head.

“I’m staying.”

“You’re sufficiently trained, son. You just won’t leave because you’ve become attached to them.”

His dad was right but Matt’s decision drove a wedge between them that would last for years

One  Three

No matter what timezone, fathers and sons will be fathers and sons, with all the disputes that come with them *G*

Great drabble

I often thought that Matt's wanting to stay with the Marines was why things were a bit strained between him and his dad.

Thanks very much for reading! Always appreciated! :)

Oooh the thought of Matt in that uniform is very dishy! XD Me loves the icon!

Thanks Fifi! xx

Poor Matt, he only wanted to have a normal life.

Thanks again Clea. :)

This nicely portrays the generation gap :)

Thank you. :) I wanted to give a reason as to why Gideon was a little cold and strict with Matt in the series.

Oh, poor, poor Matt *hugs him*
basched From: basched Date: January 7th, 2013 10:45 pm (UTC) (Link)

He needs a lot of hugs! :)

Poor Matt. Putting yourself second to help a greater cause.
basched From: basched Date: January 7th, 2013 10:51 pm (UTC) (Link)

Matt wanted to stay with his friends... his mates. He just wanted something normal.

Cheers for reading Nietie. xx

Poor Matt, pulled in two directions.
basched From: basched Date: January 7th, 2013 10:55 pm (UTC) (Link)

Torn between his mission for the future and his longing for a normal life. Bless him. :)

Thanks for reading this, Fred. :)

Things might get better for him. ;)

Thanks Kat!

Poor Matt - I can definitely see this happening between them.
basched From: basched Date: January 8th, 2013 01:20 pm (UTC) (Link)

He wants to remain with his friends, he wants a normal life so yeah, this disagreement with his dad could well have happened.

Thank you for reading it and leaving a comment. :)

Meep, poor Matt *huggles him*

He does need 'em, bless. :)

Thanks D!

I like the idea that Matt wasn't entirely ruled by his father.
basched From: basched Date: January 11th, 2013 11:39 am (UTC) (Link)

I am going for Matt being extremely rebellious in his yoof. He's come to this time and there's all this wonderful things and possibilities... he's simply not wanting to be under his dad's rule. He wants to enjoy life.

Sorry I babble. Thanks for reading. :)
dreamer_98 From: dreamer_98 Date: January 11th, 2013 07:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ouch. His father is just trying to do what's best, but I don't blame Matt for not wanting to leave.
basched From: basched Date: January 11th, 2013 08:21 pm (UTC) (Link)

Indeed. Matt comes to this time, where there's life, real life and he wants to experience that. He knows he has a responsibility for the future, but he wants to experience this too.

Thank you for reading. :)
