Drabble:: Never Been Twenty-One Before
It’s my daughter’s twenty-first birthday today. That inspired me to write a Buffyverse drabble set on the occasion of Dawn’s twenty-first. 100 words, of course, G.


Never Been Twenty-One Before


“Presents after the cake,” Buffy said, as she lit the candles.

“Cool,” Dawn said.

“You know,” Giles mused, “it used to be the custom to give a key on the occasion of a twenty-first. I suppose that would hardly be appropriate in your case.”

“Okay, blow out the candles and we’ll sing ‘Happy Birthday’,” Xander said.

Dawn sucked in her breath and blew. The candle-flames went out. The whole room flickered for a moment.

Buffy narrowed her eyes. “Hey, that’s weird,” she said. “How come there’s a birthday cake on the table?” She scrutinized the icing. “And, who’s this ‘Dawn’?”

And just like that she's hit her magical expiration date? Neat and sad.

Ouch.

My very best wishes to your lovely daughter, however.

And how in hell did we get to have daughters this old?

Grand job!

Happy birthday to your daughter, may she be blessed or cursed, as the case may be, with the ability to pun at a moment's notice.

Ooh! Well done. Love Giles's interjection and that everyone kinda ignored it.

I didn't see that one coming, even though I wondered what Giles meant.

Happy Birthday to D-d.
