Stargate SG-1 crossover drabble: Unsuccessful Applicant #1
Here’s another insane Stargate: SG-1 crossover drabble, a sequel to Who was that masked... man?, once more set during Season 9 Episode 1, Avalon Part 1, when new SG-1 member Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell is recreating a new SG-1 from scratch. It adds a crossover with a certain well-loved children’s programme originally shown on the BBC between 1969 and 1972 and, more recently, re-shown on Channel 4. Americans, etc, might find this mildly amusing but to fully appreciate it you have to be a) British or Norwegian and b) the right age. 100 words, PG.

Unsuccessful Applicant #1

Cameron Mitchell set down the résumé and looked at the small pink alien. “I’m sorry,” he said, “but you don’t quite have the qualities I need for a new member of SG-1.”

The alien made mournful whistling noises.

El Nombre looked up from where he was amusing himself with an alternative proof of Fermat’s Last Theorem. “My sympathies, señorita,” he said.

The alien whistled again.

“I know,” Cam said, “and yeah, our backers do want there to be an alien on the team, but it has to be a sexy alien, and you just don’t qualify, I’m afraid, Tiny Clanger.”

The End

Cameron better watch out or the Soup Dragon'll kick his butt for upsetting Tiny Clanger :-)

Besides, who needs sexy when you're unbearably cute? :-)

Or Major Clanger will scold him.

If the Stargate won't work he could utter his immortal line:- "Sod it! The bloody thing's stuck again!" :-)

The Clangers were incredibly cute and fun; one of the best TV shows ever.

How could anyone reject Tiny Clanger? It makes no sense at all!

I have no Clanger icon, so you'll just have to put up with Ivor.
