Drabble: Who They Gonna Call?

Belated Happy birthdays to molliemole, thedeadlyhook, yoggel, & ladypeyton


First there was Blind Date, then In A Big Country, then came They Might Be Giants, and now here is yet another extract from The Secret Diary of Dawn Summers (Height 16 ¾ metres). A little obvious, perhaps, but it popped into my head when I was watching a movie on TV on our wedding anniversary the other night – it was the first film Wombat and I ever saw together. At least it’s only 100 words. Rating PG, minute spoilers for the Buffy Season 8 comics.

Who They Gonna Call?


The immense marshmallow man shrugged off the proton beam blasts and kept advancing.

“We’ve been going about this all wrong,” said Peter Venkman. “This Mr. Stay-Puft’s okay. He’s a sailor, he’s in New York; we get this guy laid, we won’t have any trouble.”

“He’s eighty feet tall,” Ray pointed out. “How are we going to get him laid?”

Egon took out his cell phone. “I have an idea.”

- - - - -


Dawn stood watching as the Cerne Abbas Giant put Optimus Prime in a headlock and King Kong strangled the BFG. Buffy appeared holding a phone. “Hey, Dawn, Ghostbusters are calling you!”

Bwahaha! Well, she and Spike always liked the mini-marshmallows in their cocoa, so . . .

Dawn didn't like the mini-marshmallows because Buffy once told her they were monkey brains - maybe Mr. Stay-Puft will freak her out!

*snort* Only obvious in that 'only you could have put this together' kind of way.

Nicely done!

Who's left....

Jolly Green Giant?
Spiny Norman - a giant hedgehog, admittedly, but never mind.
Kitten Kong - enough said. Maybe not for a family audience...
The original Fifty Foot Woman
The Incredible Shrinking Man (not a ship with much future, of course)

You know I was listening to Bad Company, but now that music is stuck in my head!

Great fun, I see so many giants in Dawn's future!

I am the Keymaster!

Actually, I'm a friend of his, he told me to meet him here.

Good grief. Dawn the outsize call-girl. That'll teach her to avoid thricewises...

Indeed so.

Not many people's minds work the same way as mine - but after the whole 'Are you the Keymaster?" thing Venkman's words just popped the whole thing into my head without me needing to do any work except making sure that it came out as 100 words.

These are so wonderfully wrong. I absolutely love them! The only problem is that now I'm brain storming on what else you could do. Apache Chief? Godzilla? The Collosus of Rhodes?

I need to go scrub out my brain. The mental images are too much.
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: May 2nd, 2008 09:08 am (UTC) (Link)
I thought of Godzilla, but there are implications in the films that Godzilla is female - and, even if male, in my ficlet Miss Marple versus Godzilla
certain things happen that make a liaison with Dawn somewhat unlikely...

Really enjoying these bits, but I think you're overlooking a basic fact regarding Dawn. Since she's 'made' out of Buffy that would mean that she also would share the spontaneous gayification gene. The one that made it possible for her sister to start sleeping with jail bait. So Dawn isn't going to get back to proper proportions she's gonna have to rock the castle walls with someone she's more attracted to.

Thankfully the Ghostbusters can provide that certain someone. Remember the second film?

Come on. Please?

Dawn being 'made out of Buffy' didn't make her share the Potential Slayer gene, or the 'being under five feet tall' gene, so there's no reason for it to make her share the 'spontaneous gayification' gene or the 'spontaneous bankrobber' gene. I'll stick with the continuation I had planned all along - Making A Splash.

Actually I think that Buffy learned from Riley that it's okay to screw someone over whom you are in a position of authority and who nobody with any ethics would touch with a ten foot pole.

A giant Marshmallow man, and no jokes yet about swallowing?
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: May 4th, 2008 04:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
In a 100-word drabble there usually isn't room for other jokes apart from the main one.
