Double Drabble: Roxanne...
200-word double BtVS drabble, PG, set in the run-up to Christmas in Season 6. Standard pun warnings apply.


Roxanne…

Buffy’s complexion looked sallow in the colored light as she glared at her sister. “Dawn! What have you been doing?”

Dawn shrugged. “We can’t afford proper Christmas lights. I thought a little paint on the bulbs would cheer things up.”

“Did you have to pick red? The house looks like a New Orleans broth- uh, nightclub.”

“Okay, maybe not the best choice,” Dawn conceded.

“So not good,” Buffy went on. “Change all the bulbs right away and, when they’ve cooled down, wipe off every scrap of paint. I’m heading out on patrol. If it’s not done by the time I get back you’re grounded for a week.” She turned away and stormed off, slamming the door behind her as she left the house.

Dawn sighed and began to carry out her orders. She’d taken down only one bulb when the door opened and Spike walked in.

“’Lo, Bit,” he greeted her. “Passed your sis on the way here, looks like she’s in a bugger of a mood. Face like a thundercloud, didn’t even say a word, just glared at me like she was going to stake me. What’s her problem?”

“Rage,” said Dawn. “Rage against the dyeing of the light.”

*goggles* You put our agnostic puns of yesterday to shame. I bow to the master.

I liked your eggnostic puns; some of them were pretty fowl, but swan or two were worth a gander.

Just wait until I finish the one about the man who is required to convert to Judaism before he can have a same-sex relationship with a paladin - 'Do not go gentile into that good knight'.

Hee!

Aside from the terrible pun I now have that song in my brain. Thanks for that brainworm!

*groaaaaan* I love your pun drabbles! This is excellent, did not see that ending coming. Now I'm going to go off and read the real thing, and every time I do, I'll have a vision of Dawn scraping red paint off bulbs. Kudos to you S2C.

As I said to Gill - just wait until I finish the one about the man who is required to convert to Judaism before he can have a same-sex relationship with a paladin - 'Do not go gentile into that good knight'.

Aaargh! Can you strain a pun muscle? I read this at work and my colleague thought I'd gone mental. You really, REALLY, have to write a drabble with that line in it, I'm begging you!
