Drabble: Surprise! - Words in the Heroes' Tongue
I have a variable-sword. I urge calm.
Drabble: Surprise!
Number nine in my ‘Nantucket Slayride’ series of AtS/Moby Dick crossover drabbles. Two in quick succession because I wanted to get this one up while it is still a certain ‘International Day’, at least in California, although I’ve missed it by nearly seven hours in my own time zone. Previous instalments are HERE. 100 words, PG-13.


“The Groosalug has been summoned from the scum pits of Ur, Highness,” Silas the High Priest announced. “Perhaps you have seen him in a vision. He shall arrive soon. Everyone is most anxious for Your Majesty to successfully com-shuk with him.” He saw a look of blank incomprehension on the face of the new ruler of Pylea. “The com-shuk is a mating ritual,” Silas explained.

“A mating ritual?”

“Indeed. All will be as foretold.” Silas frowned slightly as he looked upon the tattooed visage of the Seer. “Although I must confess, Prince Queequeg, we were expecting someone a little prettier.”

A/N: the day in question is International Slash Day.

Yep. You made it. It's 11:07 pm right now. :))

I knew I'd make it; my job requires me to know the time zone differences between the Isle of Man and virtually everywhere else on Earth.

Sounds like they were made for each other...

Although I'm sure that Groo would have preferred Cordelia.

Heh. Groo might be a little surprised...

Is this your first foray into slash? With imagery like this, I really hope it's not your last. Though the hope is battling to triumph over expectation.

Actually I've written quite a few m-slash drabbles, starting with We All Live In A Yellow Submarine. The others are Who's The Daddy?, Happiness is a warm Gunn, and a 600-word ficlet Sweet Xander's Baadasssss Song. The last one is a link to my website as I don't seem to have put it into Memories when I posted it on LiveJournal (or else I never posted it here!) and I can't track it down anywhere apart from at my site.

I've also done a transgender fic Nancy Boy; and, of course, a lot of femmeslash, not all of it canonical.

I have to agree that Cordelia was prettier! :)

Yes, and I don't think that that gilded bikini and whispy gauze outfit would have done Queequeg any favours.

Wonder what kind of makeover Queequeg will give the Grusalug? (And I just typed "Queenqueg" and had to go back. Freudian much?)

Somehow I'd missed a couple of those other stories. "Sweet Xander's Badass Song" is too funny!

I wonder how Groo liked the Highness :)
