Drabble: Renaissance... Man?
Nominations for my stories in the ‘Twisting the Hellmouth’ awards are flooding in faster than I can keep track of them. Thanks to those who are nominating me!

Here is a silly little drabble inspired by a metaphor in a post by confusedkayt. 100 words, of course, rating G, fandom not one of my usual...


Renaissance... Man?


Michelangelo surveyed his statue of David and he saw that it was good. A slight imperfection caught his eye. He poised his chisel, aimed the hammer, and struck.

The marble cracked. Michelangelo watched with horror as the whole of David’s left ass cheek separated from the statue, plummeted to the ground, and shattered.

He clenched his fists and raised his eyes to the heavens. “Oh, no,” he cried. “It’s ruined.”

A hand grasped his shoulder and gave it a comforting squeeze. “It’s not the end of the world,” said Leonardo. “Chill out, dude. Donatello’s brought pizza.”

“Cool,” said Michelangelo. “Cowabunga!”

*genuflects* I seriously just snorted Diet Coke through my nose. You, sir, are inspired. :P Also? That title is totally brilliant.

It was inevitable from the moment I read confusedkayt's post.

Oh, no! I actually forgot the turtles' names for one horrific second, leaving my hair (despite it's flatness) to wave in the breeze passing over my head! Fortunately, the senior moment was just that...momentary. Very cute!
