Capt. Hilary Becker & Jessica Parker.

These characters took me completely by surprise in Series 4. I had read before watching, that Jess had a little crush on Becker, and I didn't think much of it. But once I actually saw the two interacting, saw that Capt. Becker seemed to fancy her as well... Well, they're just too adorable and effortless. They're actually a surprising amount of interacting between them in the webisodes that gives weight to what we eventually see in the actual series.

In between the song titles and lyrics, I've included text excerpts from scenes to give the song selection some context.

I've been working on this thing for about a week. I hope y'all enjoy it. :)

I tried looking for them, but after the last attempt...when Sarah....
Interviewer: I’ve read the report on Miss Page.
Becker: Yeah, well, we didn’t go back again after that.

Becker: Whatever happened to the others after then went through the anomaly, I don’t know. I think about it everyday...but I don’t know.

01. Blue Skies | Noah and the Whale
This is a song for anyone
With a broken heart
This is a song for anyone
Who can't get out of bed

I'll do anything
To be happy
Oh, 'cause blue skies are calling
But I know that it's hard

Jess: Oh, hey. Look, I’m so sorry about earlier. It literally took twenty minutes to extract my foot from my mouth. And I had help.
Becker: Forget it. I completely overreacted, and I’m sorry. I know you’ve been asking around about the old team. That’s okay. You can ask me anything you like; I won’t bite your head off.

02. Secrets | OneRepublic
From all the truth that I've said
Come by it honestly I swear
Thought you saw me wink, no
I've been on the brink, so

Tell me what you want to hear
Something that were like those years
Sick of all the insincere
So I'm gonna give all my secrets away

Jess: Captain Becker, welcome back to the ARC. Well, the new ARC. You have no idea how good it is to finally have some company here.
Becker: I was supposed to report to “Parker.”
Jess: Jess Parker, at your service. [extends her hand]
Becker: You’re the...field coordinator?
Jess: Sorry, not usually this crazy. I promise. Well, not unpleasantly crazy. Only, I’ve been here on my own for two weeks, just me and the creatures.

03. Why Do You Let Me Stay Here? | She & Him
Why don't you sit right down and stay a while?
We like the same things and I like your style
It's not a secret, why do you keep it?
I'm just sitting on the shelf

04. Can’t Get You Out of My Mind | Aqualung
I've seen the look in your eyes
I've seen you wondering why
There's a center of gravity
Bring you near to me
Nearer all the time

Becker: Some people feel the need to boast about things.
Jess: Insecure much? [walks away]
Becker: Excuse me? [follows]
Jess: It’s nothing but... if you’re gonna put the brakes on this guy for being too good, that would be pretty lame.
Becker: [indignant] I’m—No one’s putting the breaks on anyone.
Jess: He’s ex-military, decorated for heroism, he’s an expert in animal behavior, and he’s got countless glowing references. He’s perfect.
Becker: I merely meant whether he was the only candidate.
Jess: Anyone would think you didn’t want your boss to be better than you are.
Becker: Aha. Oh, I see. You’re making fun of me.
Jess: [laughs] Totally. Just checking to see if you smile. And you do. Which means, so far, way better company than the mammoth.

05. I Am Not A Robot | Marina & the Diamonds
Better to be hated
Than loved loved loved for what you’re not
You’re vulnerable, you’re vulnerable
You are not a robot
You’re lovable, so lovable
But you’re just trouble

06. Work | Jimmy Eat World
All I can say
I shouldn't say
Can we take a ride?
Get out of this place
While we still have time

07. Universe & U | KT Tunstall
With your child's eyes
You are more than you seem
You see into space
I see in your face
The places you've been
The things you have learned
They sit with you so beautifully

Becker: Jess, Jess!  Don’t shoot! It’s me. Don’t move, this place is rigged with traps. Walk slowly that way.
Jess: Where’s Ethan?
Becker: Not here, but he’s left us a little gift. There’s a pressure pad under my left foot, attached to that metronome. And I think that’s a bomb. This counterweight hits the floor... well, I think that detonates the bomb as well. I need you to come over here and tell me if I’m right.
Jess: Okay.
Becker: And there’s a tripwire there; be careful. Now Jess, really, really gently pull that off.
Jess: Oh, God.
Becker: That could destroy the entire building. You need to get out of here now.
Jess: No, no...
Becker: Go now!
Jess: I’m not leaving you. I’m not leaving you!

08. Somewhere A Clock Is Ticking | Snow Patrol
Something happened, that I never understood
You can't leave
Every second, dripping off my fingertips
Wage your war
Another soldier, says he's not afraid to die
Well I am scared

09. One And Only | Adele
I don't know why I'm scared ‘cause I've been here before
Every feeling every word, I've imagined it all,
You never know if you never try to forgive your past
And simply be mine

Jess: I thought you might be hungry. I hope you like Chinese.
Becker: Jessica, this is a stakeout.
Jess: You still have to eat. I was just on my way home, thought I’d drop by.
Becker: Jess, I know where you live. It’s miles away.
Jess: Well, I like the scenic route.
Becker: […] Got any prawn crackers?

10. Chinese | Lily Allen
I don't want anything more
Than to see your face when you open the door
You'll make me beans on toast and a nice cup of tea
And we'll get a Chinese and watch TV

Becker: You are truly brilliant.
Jess: I know! I am!

Every time I turn around, there you are being awesome again...

And girl, you are only aiding and abetting my fledgling crush on Ben Mansfield. Good Lord, That icon.... Lol. XD

Thanks, dear. :)

Yes, as I've said, Ben Mansfield is quite dreamy. Ridiculously so.

That icon is from a video by Holly Rose. Have you seen it? It should be alternately titled, "Ben Mansfield being Hot," IMHO.

I love that you love Becker/Jess - I have become OBSESSED with them the last couple of months... seriously, I have never fallen so quickly for a pairing as the moment he handed her a chocolate bar in the second episode. They are so adorable. I have never in my life downloaded a fanmix, but I actually plan on giving this one a listen. And the artwork is beautiful!

I love that you love Becker/Jess. I've been reading your fic on, though I know I haven't commented on everything. :/ I was surprised and delighted to see you writing for them.

I'm so glad to hear you'll listen to the mix. I really hope you enjoy it. I know fanmixes aren't everyone's cup of tea. There are a few mix artists that I always snag, though, even if I'm not into the pairing because their music tastes and selections are consistently quality. :)

Heehee! I discovered Primeval a few months ago (well, not discovered so much as finally got round to watching it) but didn't feel any need to write fanfic until Becker/Jess came along.

I've downloaded the mix and I was just listening to it as I finished off a chapter of my Becker/Jess WIP. I'm loving the songs - my fave so far was Work, and I loved Can't Get You Out Of My Mind as well. :)

So glad that you like it! I can't wait to read the next chapter of the fic. :)
