Drabble: Fire in the Sky
I went back and changed the name of Nonoma'e'e's Watcher in 'Came the Thunder' chapter one. Multi-lingual puns based on a spelling mistake? Not a good idea, in hindsight, especially in a non-humorous work. I'm halfway through the second chapter now, and I've made progress on 'Tabula Avatar' too, but I keep getting distracted by drabble plot bunnies.

Like this one. It's a drabble response to beer_good_foamy’s Black Knight Is A Long Way From Home (read that first). I will post another two drabbles later that will tie in as well. Knowledge of classic rock music is necessary.

100 words of sheer stupidity. Angel Season 5. Rating PG.


Fire In The Sky


“It’s the new company no smoking policy,” Harmony explained. “I don’t mind, ‘cause hey, I only smoke ‘cause it’s evil and I never really got to liking it, but getting Spike to go along with it is gonna be a bitch.”

Angel frowned. Something strange was going on at Wolfram & Hart and he couldn’t work out why. There had to be some common factor…

He gazed out at the ornamental pool. He could barely make out the stepping stones, hidden just under the surface, but the large sign beside the pool was impossible to miss.

*snicker*

Are they going to take a business trip to Montreaux?

(And completely OT - I've always thought Klingons would enjoy "Smoke on the Water". And Led Zeppelin, too.)

Thanks. The rest of the series (there'll be more than I'd first thought) will deal with other Deep Purple songs - and the final one will reveal what it's all about.

Funny.
And I love, love, love "Hush". Best rock song ever.

Thank you!

Actually I was really listening to a different Purple song but it would have given too much away if I'd named it.

There will be more pain to come...

I suspect that this is where my lack of rock-fu is letting me down, because I don't get this one and didn't realise that the first one was more than a python reference.

It won't be worth reading the rest of the series then - they depend on a knowledge of Deep Purple.

Oh Jon Lord...

Well, that certainly sets the Paice. Not so Black, more with the funny... and if I try to pun on one more Deep Purple member I'm going to rupture something. Lots of fun, and looking forward to the next!

I can't think of any puns on Ian Gillan that would be relevant either.

This is going to be a complete series, with an actual plot, and (as long as you don't mind) your Black Knight story will be an integral part of it as will be revealed at the end.

Oh, I definitely don't mind. I'd be honoured. :-)

LOL! Getting Spike to agree is really going to be a bitch.
