Numb3rs Fic: Memento  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #59 – Father


Title: Memento
Pairing/Characters: Alan
Rating: G
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: Pilot, The Running Man
Summary: One of Alan's favorite mementos is a Father's Day card from his sons
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ


He knows Margaret bought the card, but is certain opinionated seven year old Donny picked it out.

The handwritten note inside is what he cares about, not the pre-printed Father's Day sentiments.

'Dear Dad,

You are the best dad ever!

Happy Father's Day!

Love Donny and Charlie'

All except the last word is written in careful pencil, obviously Donny's hand. Charlie's name is in purple crayon and it's clear that Don's hand steadied Charlie's toddler fingers, but forgot the letter I and had to go back and squeeze it in.

Alan pulls it out every Father's Day and smiles.

Aww! I love it when you write wee!Eppes.

Ah, yes... Despite my supposed rep as a slashy porn writer (who knew? LOL!) I do write nice family friendly fare as well and the Wee!Eppes are so enjoyable to write that I love including them.

Glad you liked it.

I'm glad you thought so. Alan seems just sentimental enough to have kept one all these years. :-)

Thanks,

Emma
