HL50 Prompt - Exotic  
Bloody hell, it's a HL50 fic! I know, I've been a bit remiss with these of late (I blame Immortal Giles for refusing to co-operate in the writing of the next chapter of Reunion) . This is just a bit of fluff folks, inspired by the time that Anne asked if Immortals catch colds…
 
Even Immortals get the Flues
 
“I never felt this bad when I got sick as a mortal. It must be Asian flu or some tropical disease.” Richie groaned, sniffling and clutching his head.
 
“Pneumonia at least,” concurred a bunged up Duncan from under a towel, his head hanging over a bowl emitting menthol vapours.
 
“Oh grow up, both of you,” Amanda snapped, putting two bowls of chicken soup onto the table forcefully, spilling a little. “You have common colds, not some rare exotic fever, common colds. Who knew Immortals could get man flu? I don’t even know why I’m nursing you, it will run its course in a day or so,” she finished, grabbed her jacket and left.
 
For a few moments following her departure the only sounds in the apartment were the two Immortals sniffling.
 
“Mac? Could you pass me the soup?” Richie whined. He was answered by a low-flying, damp towel landing on his head.

Don't encourage them! They only have a cold! ;-)

I seem to remember an episode when Richie was sniffling or complaining about being cold, and asking if he could catch a cold. Duncan replied something like, "You still catch colds--you just won't die from it."

Like the snippet, though :)

Yeah, I think you're right, can't remember exactly what ep though. What inspired this bit of fluff was the same line in Testimony.
