Here is a drabble that is (shock!) NOT set in the Buffyverse. 100 words, rating G, don't expect too much.
As The Romans Do
Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus, known to history as the Emperor Nero, was walking through his palace one day in 60 AD. He was bored and decided to explore the servants quarters, into which he would normally never venture. He set off into those areas with his Praetorian Guards following behind.
He went into the laundry rooms, where a group of slaves were kneeling beside vats, preparing to colour togas with saffron and with the Imperial tyrian purple. They came to their feet, flustered, on seeing their Emperor, and respectfully greeted him.
“Hail, Caesar. We who are about to dye salute you.”
