New Fic: Model Student

Model Student

Fandom: Stranger Things
Rated: G
Category: Double Drabble. Gen. Family. Dad Hopper.

Summary: Hopper had never been much for studying when he was younger. But things change.
Note: written for the random word prompt of module.

----

Hopper hadn’t opened a textbook since high school, and even then it had been pretty rare.

He hadn’t really needed to. Between a natural aptitude for most things and teachers not caring about the rest (no one cared if you could do advanced math if you could tackle well), he had skated his way through school.

The military had been similar. He hadn’t had to study in basic training. He was never going to get a desk job. He had above average marksmanship and could take a punch, so no one cared if he was book smart. The only test results his CO cared about were related to physical fitness and targeting scores.

So late night cram sessions were a foreign concept to him.

But here he was, poring over a study guide at midnight. He was tired, and work came early in the morning, but still he read and reviewed and took notes.

Because Jane had a lot of catching up to do, and he’d assigned her three modules to do the next day.

And she always had questions about her work.

Always.

And so he studied. Most every night.

And he wouldn’t have had it any other way.
