Negotiate

NegotiateThe store's proprietor donned a pair of surgical gloves before examining the still bloody bones. "This isn't a complete skeleton."

Wolf snorted at the statement of the bleeding obvious. There was a ready market for a skull with intact spine, not to mention the other remains. Leaning into Drusilla's leg as she scratched behind her ears, Wolf mused that she could find a use for a few bones he'd have trouble shifting.

"The skull will fetch a tidy sum, not enough for a more commodius work space, but ample to cover labour, and Puppy would like to keep the phalanges."

A little something off the rump, my dear? You'll have to fight the lions for what's left.

While I'm still grossly unfamiliar with the BtVS fandom, I'm enjoying this series of yours. I wasn't sure when I started, but now I'm curious as to where it's going. Just thought I'd pass that on. ^_^

I have a vague idea where I want this to go, but sometimes the muse takes the challenges and runs with them. Glad you're enjoying this series.

and Puppy would like to keep the phalanges Okay, so why does this have me giggling madly?! Excellent stuff, as usual.

But why does Puppy want the phalanges? And I'm wondering if anyone knows what I'm talking about without grabbing a dictionary. But I'm happy to have amused you.

I shudder to think why Puppy wants them... a little small for satisfyingly gnawing on I'd have thought *ponders*

Hee, I know some useless stuff; like, if you stick an r in the mix you get a wee Australian tree furry.

I do! And I have an idea of why she wants 'em too. ::wicked grin:: But then, I remember what she did with that punk's thumb in "Impiety". Heh. One must properly accessorize, after all. :P

But we're talking around 60 phalanges here of varying sizes, that may be just a tad excessive for Wolf.

The real reason came from a suggestion by my forensic pathogist mate, who doesn't mind my strange questions and seems to even find them perfectly normal. And no, I'm not going to tell you yet.

I won't say it's exactly cute, but...it is amusing in an off-beat "puppy wants the phalanges" sort of way.

Cute is relative. I find it's cute to be woken up by 30kg of Siberian Husky standing on my chest and trying to lick the inside of my mouth. But that's not everybody's cup of tea.
