One Buffy drabble for [livejournal.com profile] giles_shorts (with my ususal Giles/Buffy pairing) and a couple of post-series Sports Night drabbles (both with shades of Danny/Natalie.)


Title: Masquerade
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Word Count: 100
Pairing: Buffy/Giles
Prompt: Mask


Her mask obscured her features and her British accent was fairly good, but he would always know his Slayer. What he didn’t know was why she was flirting with him. Was it a joke? Or did she not recognize him? To find out, he leaned in close, turned on the charm, and whispered: “And what would you do if I suggested we move this to somewhere more private?”

“I’d say ‘let’s go before anyone realizes that the Head Slayer just ran off with their Head Watcher’,” she replied seriously, in her own voice.

It was hours before they were missed.




Title: Stop the Merry-Go-Round
Fandom: Sports Night
Word Count: 100
Prompt: Bubble Bath
Notes: This was an idea that I had for [livejournal.com profile] bubbleficathon back in the day. Sadly, no one was interested in Dan/Natalie. But I finally worked into into a drabble.


“But how did you do it?”

“I don’t know, guys,” Dana replied, exasperated. “I binged on ice cream. I ate more chocolate. I took long bubble baths. What does it matter how I got over Casey? The important thing is that I did, right?”

Dan and Natalie exchanged glances. Dana suddenly realized why they were asking.

“Look," she explained. “I finally realized that I was always going to end up right back where I started with Casey. I’d been on a merry-go-round for years and it was time to get off.”

“But the bubble bath thing helped?” Danny asked, hopefully.




Title: Awkward Research
Fandom: Sports Night
Word Count: 200
Prompt: Jeremy, Natalie, Danny - awkward research for [livejournal.com profile] unoriginal_liz
Note: This was another old fic idea that I've had floating around for a while. Liz gave me this prompt for a 100 word drabble. I thought in had enough there to be a ficlet. Many years later, I was finally able to turn it into a double drabble.


Poor Danny. I can tell that he's getting frustrated.

Jeremy and Natalie are helping him put together a piece about the Olympic doping scandal. They've worked like this hundreds of times before. But this is different. There’s a whole new level of weirdness that they’ve never had to deal with before, not even when Natalie and Jeremy were fresh off of a break up. The rhythm is all off. Natalie’s frustrated, and Danny just doesn’t get why he can’t get a straight answer, because he doesn’t realize what’s changed. Natalie probably doesn’t either.

But Jeremy knows. Just like us, he’s seen them together. But while we’re all enjoying the vicarious thrill of watching two old friends finally realize that they were meant for each other, all poor Jeremy has his regrets. Because he’s the one that ended things with Natalie for good.

And, because Dan and Natalie haven’t yet realized what we all know, they can’t tone things down to spare Jeremy’s feelings. So things are awkward.

As their boss, I should probably go in there and make things better, but I think this is above my pay grade. Now how can I convince Isaac that he should handle this?
