Drabble: A Team-Up?
Here’s a quick crossover drabble; AtS and The A-Team. 100 words, rating G.


A Team-Up?


Face gave the pretty scientist one of his best smiles. Fred ignored him and continued with her explanation of the mission.

“We have to rescue Angel’s baby,” she told them. “A crazy vampire hunter kidnapped Connor and took him to another dimension. I’ve constructed an electro-magnetically generated dimensional portal but iron would disrupt it. That means no swords, no guns. The place is full of monsters so we need people who can build automatic weapons out of whatever’s lying around.”

Hannibal Smith puffed on his cigar. “Another dimension?”

“A different plane.”

B.A. Baracus scowled. “I ain’t going on no plane!”

You're having a good holiday, then?

Thank you!

It's certainly been a productive holiday on the fic-writing front.

Lovely, in that typically punishing sort of way. :P

Boy, it's been a long time since I've watched that show. You gave me a good chuckle! :)

Ouch.

Ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch.

And since I'm certain that's what you were after.

Ouch.

bwaa! That was painful!

I used to love the A-team. My mother used it as a good example of why we children shouldn't be allowed to watch television...

Thanks! I always felt that it was more likely to encourage violent behaviour than any other show because nobody ever got hurt by all the shooting and car crashes and fistfights. It made it just seem like good clean fun.

Where's Murdock?
Oh, and didn't the A-Team build vehicles, not guns?
And now I want the next part. I miss Hannibal saying "I love it when a plan comes together!"

Come'on, write more, please.
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: May 1st, 2006 10:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
Murdock was almost always in the Mental Institution when the A-Team were approached for a mission and the others had to come up with a scheme to get him out before they could get going. And they almost always built some kind of weapon that fired nails or ball bearings or mildly explosive projectiles, usually as part of the armored car that they would build out of the collection of vehicle parts that was always mysteriously to be found in the warehouse or barn in which the villains locked them or beseiged them. The projectiles were usually propelled by mechanical means rather than explosives but they were always devastatingly effective despite never ever hitting any of the villains.

I'll do my best to do an 'A-Team in Qortoth' sequel but no promises.

This isn't really a pun, is it? This qualifies, I think, as a clever play on words. And one that leads those like myself to ponder --- Are there metal detectors at the gateways to other dimensions? And do they have those bucket things that you put your belts, watches and shoes in or do they get zapped through somehow?
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: May 2nd, 2006 11:22 am (UTC) (Link)
It obviously can't apply to all types of dimensional portal - they took a car to Pylea - and in this case it was just an authorial decision to provide a rationale for the plot. I was thinking of the time travel in 'Terminator' actually.

I might well do some revision on this - actually I already have, this that you have read is the third version to have been posted - and take out that bit about metal. Otherwise BA Baracus would have to leave behind all his gold chains!
