Dang it!
hollydb was one of the winners at the Love's Last Glimpse Awards, and deservedly so. When she mentioned it in a recent post she made an unfortunate typo:

Danging in the Moonlight won Best Romance and a runner up for Best Challenge Response.

and that inspired me to write a little drabble and post it as a comment. Repeated here with permission. 100 words, rating harmless.


Danging in the Moonlight


"Dang Slayer", Lyle Gorch growled. "Her and her dang stakes, vampire cain't git a decent meal nohow." He looked up at the full moon. "Dang werewolves'll be out now, a-skeering away all the dang humans. Ah jest cain't abide those dang werewolves."

Candy pouted. "Why, Lyle Gorch, you big hunk of vampire, are you jest gonna stand around danging in the moonlight or are you gonna give me some hot sweet lovin'?"

Lyle turned and saw that Candy had removed her dress and was wearing nothing but high heels and a skimpy thong. "Dang me!" he exclaimed.

So she did.

Sorry! (he says insincerely)

Just wait for the sequel, "Dang of the Vampires".

It's almost certain to win Best Romance on it's own merits next time round.
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: June 18th, 2005 03:18 am (UTC) (Link)
And then there will be the sequels, "Dang of the Vampires" and "Save the last dang for me".

Loved it. Some nights are just one dang thing after another, aren't they?

One possible correction, though. I used to live in Texas and (as far as I could tell, not being BORN a Texan) "you-all" is plural (a.k.a. "all y'all"). If Candy was just talking to Lyle, she'd say "y'all", which is singular.

Are there any southern Americans out there who can confirm this, or tell me I misunderstood the lingo (which is entirely possible)?

I checked with transcripts of Fred's AtS dialogue and y'all are right - I should have known, I've written Fred in fic and used it that way when writing her - and I have duly corrected Candy's usage.
Y'all used incorrectly - (Anonymous) - Expand

curiouswombat wants me to write a fic in which you do get turned into a blue-nose' gopher, but I haven't got time to come up with a logical framework (even a Bizarro World logical framework). If she want that she'll have to write it herself.

Hee!

Ah, how I've missed the strange speakr humour.
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: June 18th, 2005 02:56 am (UTC) (Link)
If you want really strange Speakr humour, catch up with "Sunnydale Passions".

Good to see you back.

Thank you!

Look out for the sequel, "Dang of the Vampires".

Or perhaps not.

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "dangly bits"

Neat!
