World's Okayest Dad | Video

[Tucker looked...well, it was hard to tell because his helmet's on, but there was something annoyed in his movements. Behind him was a room that seemed mostly barren and militaristic aside from the tossed about mess, a room that might seem familiar to his Chorus friends really, and the camera shook a little as he plucked something off a wall. It was turned over in his hand before he pointed it at the camera. A photograph, one with five human kids holding basketballs, and one that's...a little different.]

Since someone brought it up and now we're talking about it, yeah, I've got a kid. His name is Junior and he's amazing and I'm super freakin' proud of him. He can kick anyone's ass in basketball, is a freaking diplomat and on a scholarship, he knows at least ten different words for "dick", and he hasn't bitten a person in at least three months. He got a ribbon at school for that one.

[He pulled the picture back and put it on the wall again; there was one in his wallet, too. He was, in some few and far between ways, like every other dad out there, just with better jokes.]

He's the best goddamn thing about being a Chosen One. [There was a momentary pause, because--]...Okay, so maybe he's tied with the sword.

Don't ask specifics. Just know that childbirth sucks, I don't want to talk about that, but I'll tell you how damn amazing my son is if you want to listen. And I know I'm not the only one with weird families, so come on and spill it.

Wow.

[North had been pretty sure he'd gotten the staring and blinking out of his system before he hit 'reply,' but his brain keeps hitting and bouncing off of the things that you probably shouldn't say or ask about someone's kid.

Turns out there are a lot of those, when someone's kid looks a lot like what you were trained to shoot at when you were barely grown yourself.]


So, uh. Does he go to a boarding school-?

Hah. Well, if I ever wanted some solid evidence the war really is over for you guys . . .

[Basketball team. Jesus. If that isn't a crushingly normal childhood detail right there.]

So he's got some friends at school, then?

[The whole conversation feels so profoundly surreal, but he's at least decent at forcing all kinds of conversations into approachable shapes.]

[She knew she heard the words coming out of Tucker's mouth when they were talking and she knew the kid wasn't entirely human but this is not exactly what she was expecting. She does, however, appreciate the passion he has for his kid (possibly even a little jealous), and smiles as she replies.]

Good job, Tucker. You sound like an amazing dad.

[ The flat stare when the Chief sees this is one for the record books. ]

Things have gotten interesting since the war ended.

[ He's trying. He's trying so hard. ]

Does this happen?

[ He's trying to figure out if this is a widespread universal distance. Maybe he'll ask Wash about it. Do aliens on their side of the fence just do this to people?

His home universe, he's starting to understand, seems horrible by a lot of standards. But at least it mostly makes sense to him. ]

Cortana, on the other hand...]

I don't know. Aliens impregnating humans, regardless of gender? Reminds me of the Incubus.

That's a Sangheili! They're not interfertile with humans and no human, much less an anatomically male one, could carry a theoretical pregnancy to term! They're not even viviparous!

[This is it, this is what sends Cortana rampant.]

And they just let you enroll a Sangheili in prep school?!

Man! I'd sign him on to be the center on my team, any day.
