Spelling Mistake Drabble: Maiden Voyage
This is my 1,000th LiveJournal entry. I intended to commemorate the event with something special, perhaps even a new chapter of ‘Savage Beauty’ – at long last I’ve worked out how to continue, integrating the Icelandic financial crisis into the story, and it won’t be too long before I get back to it – but it wasn’t going to be soon enough and so instead I’m doing another of my ever-popular spelling mistake drabbles. Even stupider than the last! Buffyverse, post series, ignores comics canon, 100 words, and I think that, even though it contains nothing explicit, I’d better rate it NC-17 to be safe.

Maiden Voyage


“It’s totally not fair,” Dawn whined. “Between Buffy hardly ever letting me out of her sight, and Spike being all over-protective and threatening to eat any boy who puts a hand anywhere between my shoulder and my ankle, I never get any action. I’m gonna die an old maid.” She pouted.

“That’s so sad,” said her new friend.

“Yeah,” said Dawn. “I just wish I could loose my virginity.”

“Granted!”

“Strangest cause of a fractured skull I’ve ever encountered in all my years in the medical profession,” remarked the ER doctor. “How could a girl trip over her own hymen?”

Thank you. The amount of people who mix up "lose" and "loose" makes me want to throw things.

*shudder* is pretty much what I was going for.

Oh, that just makes mental pictures that I don't want! ::shudders::

Congrats on the 1000 entries!

I was going for the shudder.

Thank you!

Hee! That's hysterical!

Mixing up "lose" and "loose" really does drive me nuts...


Happy Birthday to deird1

Thanks!

For some reason that's a laugh out loud rather than a groan out loud. I think it's the image!

Congrats on the 1,000! And great news about Savage Beauty!

Ewwwwwwww.....

Any chance of a "Los Angelus" drabble?
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: May 25th, 2009 07:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
'Ewwwwwwww' is pretty much what I was going for.

I have a vague idea for a 'Los Angelus' drabble but so far it's not funny enough.

Oy!

Congratulations on reaching 1000 entries.

Ouch! but if there is a God then this is what will happen to people who mix up those two words when they die.
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: May 25th, 2009 07:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Indeed. Although recently I'm finding that it's breech/breach that's annoying me most.
sammywol From: sammywol Date: May 26th, 2009 09:41 am (UTC) (Link)
'honoured in the breech'?! Oh my yes! In find the 'free reign' and even 'free rain' ones to be my bugbears at the moment.

Very funny! Care to address the issue of all those men in fanfic with the taunt muscles? (And I can't remember - have you attacked the breath/breathe issue? "He was so taken aback by her beauty that he forgot to breath.")

Thank you!

Maybe in the future, if a suitable vehicle for the mockery occurs to me.
