Drabble: School Horde
This is quite possibly the stupidest drabble that I've ever written. I wrote it so that I could post it at "Twisting the Hellmouth" and up my quota of crossover fics so that I can post more non-crossovers, but I think it's a bit too bloody stupid for that. So I'm just going to put it here. If you want to read something sensible read my last post, In Bloom.

This is a BtVS/Doctor Who crossover. PG, 100 words. Standard pun warnings apply.


School Horde


The TARDIS materialised atop the Great Wall of China and three travellers stepped out.

“Well, Spike, we’re here,” the Doctor said.

“Bit daft, if you ask me,” Rose said. “Don’t want to mess around with Genghis bleedin’ Khan.”

“Always wanted to do this, pet,” Spike told her. He looked out across the steppe to where the lights of a thousand camp fires blazed. Thirty thousand Mongol warriors slept, or stood on guard, or worked on the siege engines with which they would assault the gates.

He shouted a challenge. “Come and have a go if you think you’re horde enough!”

Thank you!

Perhaps we should ask The Doctor to TARDIS back in time and ask you to reconsider that pun. *g*

Suits me; then I could get some bets down on the football results at the same time.

Too stupid for you? I don't believe it!

Not quite sure how to take that one.

Hee!

Back on great punning form I see. Was this part of the cunning plan of which Angel deprived Spike in NFA?

Thanks!

Your comment here is responsible for the punchline of "Vampires Hate Gaelic".

I rather hoped it might stimulate you to write something from the arsenal of little Sodoff.

*cringe* *groan* Only you have the ability to make something like this passable. Only you...

Thank you!

Groan...

I've done worse - go for it...

You can't mean it.

Snerk.

Heh!

Anyone who entered after the pun warning did so at their own risk.

You certainly are creative.

Thank you!

The funny thing is, is that it sounds like the sort of thing Spike would do... :)
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: March 7th, 2006 08:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Of course!

Ouch.

One to hoard.
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: March 7th, 2006 08:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you!

One of my pet bugbears is the confusion of hoard and horde. The Master of Thrones and Crowns must turn in his grave sometimes. Also, in a similar fashion to the loose usage of 'decimate', the numerical significance of 'horde' has been forgotten. In the army of Genghis Khan a horde was always three toumans, that is, thirty thousand men.

Hahaha! I love your puns. :P

Oddly - I can see Spike doing that. (But I can be odd!)
