DiscordWitty and urbane, Lorne was the perfect host. His vocal talents were commensurate with his ability to keep Caritas' diverse clientele — human, demon and otherwise — from slaughtering each other.

Tonight he had a regular in for a reading and his people managing skills were being put to the test. A quiet word here, a free drink there. Sometimes he wondered if one man's continued patronage was worth the drop in profits.

Coughing nervously, the man stepped up to the microphone. Angel's renowned fight against evil did little to lend verisimilitude to a singing voice that sounded like cats being strangled.

I am so mean to Angel in fic (all two of them) but it's more good natured than my relegating Buffy to the role of bitch queen. All in good fun, disregard the axe handle.

Your icon is adorable. Pointy cats are pretty.

I just hope he wasn't singing "Oh Mandy". Oi, how I've suffered over the years with that song!

Wind Beneath My Wings? It will be something hideous that you last heard mangled into muzak in an elevator.

Wind Beneath My Wings?

Buffy wanted that for her first dance after she'd married Spike in Something Blue. Yes, there's a certain irony to that! lol

*snerk* He can save the world, but he can't carry a tune. Poor guy.

Neither can I. Scary singing voice.

I'm thinking it was a good thing Angel didn't make an appearance in Once More With Feeling, the nightmarishly bad singing of Buffy and Willow was bad enough.

There are only 2 episodes of Buffy I actively want to see, and that's one of them. (Hush is the other, though I was disappointed to learn that it wasn't done for the sake of being artfully silent, they were actually all magically silenced or something like that.) Of course, every time I tune in, it's one of the same 5 episodes, and those aren't them.

Both are amongst my favourites. Hush has the creepiest villians of the series in the Gentlemen. Perhaps that's just mime-fear speaking.

Ah! One of my favorite Angel moments brought to life. Good one!

Hey, I'm glad to see something from Lorne's point of view, even if that view is Angel singing horribly.

I like Lorne and he called to me when I tried a three word challenge in one hit.
