|11:23 pm - 2 little ficlets will fight it out|
ETA: Woah, just checked the news. Hope everyone in the path of angry nature is keeping safe.
Coming off the meme I posted yesterday, one ficlet and one drabble.
Title: Dawn Summers Solves Things With SCIENCE!
Author: Beer Good (beer_good_foamy)
Fandom: Buffyverse, post-”Chosen”
Word count: 350
Characters: Dawn, Faith, possibly Dawn/Faith
Warning:: Drunkenness, wandering hands
Summary: snowpuppies wanted “drunk!Dawn, Gen with Buffy or slashy with Faith, preferably.”
Dawn Summers Solves Things With SCIENCE!
Something was rubbing against her nose, was Dawn’s first muddled thought. Something smooth, squishing her nose. Which was definitely in the wrong place. Or maybe her whole head was in the wrong place? A viable theory. Which could be tested by opening her eyes.
Here we go. Opening them. Eeeeee... crash. Open. Focusing in progress.
The thing squishing her nose appeared to be an ass. In leather pants. Upside down. Which is an odd position for an ass to be in, but since there were currently stairs flying by above her head (and woah, better not look up at them or things would start spinning) she probably had no business complaining about things being upside down. New theory, then: She was slung over the shoulder of someone wearing leather pants, who was carrying her up the stairs to her room. The polite thing would probably be to thank the ass's owner for this, since she vaguely remembered that her legs were currently unable to perform the same service, but Very Bad Things might happen if she opened her mouth. Also, how did she know it wasn’t a demonic ass? It was kind of black and shiny-looking, and demons can be like that. She should know, she was a Looker now. Watcher. Right. People had celebrated that with her. There’d been champagne, and whisky, and come to think of it that might be related to her current upside-downness. But there was something more urgent... right, demonic ass! Though when she reached down (or up) and examined it, it didn’t feel very evil. There were muscles under the leather, flexing in a very interesting way as they carried her up the stairs, but not - Hey!
Faith landed a light slap on Dawn’s ass with the hand not currently holding her Watcher’s legs. “Not saying I’m not enjoying that, Sunrise, but you should probably sober up first.”
Dawn agreed, though it came out more along the lines of “Mfblbl.” She closed her eyes again, laid her cheek to Faith’s, and let it rock her back to sleep. She’d deal with the demons tomorrow.
Title: Somebody To Shove
Author: Beer Good (beer_good_foamy)
Word count: 100
Characters: Angel, Riley
Summary: darkpoole wanted “Angel and Riley forced to share a bed.”
“Make me, boy.”
“‘Morning, Buffy. Funny thing, Angel rolled over on a stake, and...’”
Angel sighed. “This is ridiculous. There’s plenty of room on the floor.”
“Nice of you to offer. Try not to snore.” Riley yanked at the pillow. “And thanks for getting hair gel all over the pillowcase.”
“Actually, I was thinking you’d take the floor.”
“You’d like that, wouldn't you.”
“Look, none of us is getting any sleep this way.“
“Fine. Then you take the floor.”
They tried to get comfortable on Buffy’s narrow fold-out couch.
“Quit hogging the blanket.”

Hee! I like that Faith chooses Sunrise, and of course Dawn notices the pleasant flexing. I like that Riley has learned well from Buffy (the stake line reminds me of 'Giles! I accidentally killed Spike! That's okay, right?').
I can't really claim credit for "Sunrise", I've seen several fics that have Faith call Dawn that. Usually implying that she came up with it in s3. But I like it a lot more than I like some other fanonical nicknames ("Fang" for Angel never made sense to me.)
I think nicknames can be overused, but Sunrise for Dawn is just the right mix of sweet and snarky, I think. (So, if Faith came up with it in s3, did she or did the monks...?)
Drunken Dawn is cute (or puking down Faith's legs, of course...)
Nice snark in the second one.
And Faith has Slayer reflexes, so if Dawn starts sounding like she wants to talk to Ralph, I'm pretty sure Faith can get clear.
(Alternately, the reason Faith is carrying her slung over her shoulder rather than in her arms is that Faith wore the nicest top she had to Dawn's official instatement as Watcher, and doesn't want to get puke on it.)
Loved the Dawn and Faith one. Having a hard time not picturing Spike rather than Riley with Angel. :)
Riley's been honing his snarking skills. (And for the record, Spike's reaction would be more along the lines of hinting that as long as they share a bed, might as well make the best of it...)
Bwah! The floor is such a logical option, but I can really see neither Angel nor Riley backing down, just because.
My first thought when I saw that prompt was "Why on earth would they share the bed if there was anywhere else they could sleep... No wait, that's the wrong question. Why would they share a bed if they could make the other guy sleep somewhere else?"

The Riley and Angel ficlet is so hilarious! SO HILARIOUS! XDDD Nice!
Hee, I like the Dawn ficlet. Love Faith calling her "Sunrise." :)
Thanks! :) I always liked that nickname for Dawn, this seemed a good place to use it.
"she was a Looker now." Bwahahaha! The Council of Lookers. I love it. XD
Well, it's either that or Viewers. Which would just be confusing. :) Thanks!
*lol* I love when you write petty-Angel! (And petty-Riley to boot? Pure gold.)
Thanks! It's his natural state, IMO.
