Drabble meme responses  
So these are my responses to the Drabble meme.


He wasn’t sure why Methos had suggested that they go riding together, but it was such a glorious day that Duncan was pleased he had. Duncan adjusted the bridle of the Palomino before putting a foot in the stirrup and pulling himself up. As he landed in the saddle, he felt the approach of another Immortal. He looked up to see Methos approaching on a white Shire and chuckled.

“And Death rode in on a pale horse,” Duncan said with a smile. Methos shook his head and smiled back.

“I knew you’d appreciate the irony,” Methos commented, “His name’s Binky.”


Susan rubbed the bridge of her nose and looked again at the spot on the corner of her desk. The Death of Rats was still there. She sighed and stood up.

“Children, I need to step into the Cupboard. I shall be right back, and I will know if any of you so much as breathe, Oliver.”

“Yes, Miss,” the children chorused.

Satisfied, she stepped into the cupboard and out of the timestream.

“What do you want this time?” she demanded. The figure that stepped out of the shadows was unexpected.

“Frankly, I just want to go home,” answered Methos.


Sam Vimes sighed the long deep sigh of a man who knew he was well and truly buggered. Carrott looked at him with his big, dopey, innocent eyes, and Vimes knew in that moment, with a certainty he’d never felt before, that Carrott wasn’t as daft as he looked. He’d often suspected as much. Carrott, despite his own world view, always got what he meant, even the subtext, even when he pretended he didn’t. Vimes let out a little growl of frustration in the direction of his second before turning around to face the inevitable.

“Surprise!” cried Sybil “Happy Birthday!”


“What you doing, Zee-vaa?” Tony asked as he perched on the edge of her desk and glanced at her monitor. Intent on the screen, Ziva didn’t look up.

“I’m watching the video you told McGee about. This really does look like Ducky’s nephew.”

“It does, doesn’t it?” Tony said, leaning closer.

“Leave it alone, DiNozzo,” Gibbs commanded as he strode in.

“Yeahboss!” Tony answered, leaping up and following Gibbs to his desk. “It’s just that dead guy really looks like…”

“Except he’s a dead guy. And I asked McGee to look into it, not you. Drop it DiNozzo.”

“Yes Boss.”


“What do you mean?” Tony demanded through the Bluetooth. “It’s a classic, someone must have one!”

Tony paced the floor, Pepper watching, amused.

Have you mentioned money’s no object? she wrote, holding it up for Tony.

“Have I mentioned money’s no object?” He waited for the response, growled and yanked the earpiece out before tossing it at Pepper, who deftly caught it.

“Maybe you should just manufacture your own parts?” she suggested.

“You can’t just manufacture a piece of lovingly hand-crafted precision engineering…oh, wait, yes I can,” Tony replied with a grin. “Well done, Miss Potts.”

“Any time, Mr. Stark.”

Apparently, aeron_lanart can’t count to five, (or maybe she can’t read instructions properly),

Giles placed the beers down on the table before he slid into the booth, taking the seat opposite his friend. They sat regarding each other and drinking for a while.

“So, you wanted to talk?” Giles asked. His confusion was natural; they hadn’t talked in over a century and then he suddenly got a call out of the blue. His companion nodded and took another swig of beer. Giles realised with shock that he was at a loss for words. “Talk to me, what’s wrong?”

“I’m sorry old friend, I’ve got bad news,” Lister finally answered. “Darius has been murdered.”

Ooo fun I likes. Particularly loved Methos' new horse.

They are all wonderful, and the first 3 had me cackling.

I'm also very glad I forgot to count as I love that it was Immie Lister who told Giles about Darius. Thank you!

1) Death's Pale Horse, Binky. lol!

2) is that a Discworld/HL crossover?

4) loved tough boss!Gibbs. Beware the headslap.

5) Like the bit of Pepper pointing out the obvious to Tony. Ha!

6) Sigh... yeah, we all miss Darius.

2) Why, yes, it is! Think of it as a trailer of sorts for the Chapter That Won't Cooperate. *grin*

Thanks, happy you enjoyed them :)

That's marvellous! And exactly what I wanted to :). Thanks! :)

Thought it might be *g*

I'm really pleased you enjoyed it. :)

And who knows, perhaps you might have actually got the bloody muses to cooperate!

That would be wonderful:)

Thank you very much :)

These were awesome - also mine was the bestestest ;)

Now I wonder if this is Methos post his Discworld visit, if this is the real Binky (who visits him after bringing him home) or if this is just a Terry Pratchett reading Methos who has an even bigger sense for irony than Duncan grasps.

You are most welcome, I'm glad you liked.

That is entirely up to you, whichever you prefer it to be, although I must say I like the idea of Methos enjoying Discworld. :)
Black Rook: cutiegrachonok on May 5th, 2009 06:38 am (UTC)
You know, when I read "The thief of time" for the first time, I couldn't get rid of the idea of Methos reading it for couple of weeks:). He'll be amused with that version of the Horsemen, don't you think?:) And Joe will get a suggestion to rename Watchers to History Monks:).

Yay! Vimes! ♥ Thank you very much. :)

You are very, very welcome :) Luckily I'm in the middle of Thud! at the moment. *grin*
birggitt: The Championsbirggitt on May 8th, 2009 08:39 pm (UTC)
Well, I was late, so I didn't ask for anything. And yet, I got Methos (twice!) and Iron Man and Immortal!Giles.
Am I a lucky girl or what? *laughs*

These are all wonderful.
Especially love the Methos ones and the Abbyverse one. (hope to see more of that soon)

Thank you!

Meep, it's been a while, hasn't it? I've got too many damn WIPs, that's the problem. I'll shuffle it up to third on the list, and see what happens. But I make no promises that the muse can't keep! ;-)
