Amalgam

Amalgam"What are you doing, love?"

She had scooped a small mountain of ice cream into a bowl and was proceeding to install little mountaineers along its peaks and valleys. "They were out of cookies and cream." She popped a stray animal cracker in her mouth.

Spike sat opposite her and examined her construction; camels, monkeys and bison were carefully embedded in her dessert. "Does it taste the same?"

"A little, once the animal crackers go all mushy." Dawn smooshed a kangaroo into the ice cream before spooning it into her mouth and slowly licking the spoon. "Want to try some?"

It's amazing you managed to put in such strange ingredients in this one. Another nice window into S/D.

That's what the challenge asked for, the muse was tempted to fling ice cream at the monkeys, but I thought I'd go with edible monkeys.

As I'm unofficially on the drabble challenge meme, fancy offering me a challenge?

Don't get them here, unless I hunted up an ex-pat shop and if I'm doing that I'll be distracted by Reese's Pieces.

My box fetish is for the weird little cardboard box Chinese food containers on American television. Chinese takeaway here comes in plastic boxes, but there's a place in town that has the cardboardy boxes and I adore them. They have little handles.

We're so easily amused, we probably shouldn't be let loose in public.

oh my god yes!! we can't get them at all here, so i haven't even been able to develop an obsession. such a fantastic sound, using chopsticks to eat straight from the box. Lord i want some.

I spent alot of today being amused by the tadpoles in our pond. I went outside to stand in torrential rain for a bit, and got occupied with poking the poles. They're not scared at all, they come and hug your finger when you dip your hand in the pond. It was great.

hm. i'm so unused to your usual fandoms that i find it hard to think... but i would love something crossed over with Highlander. Adrian or Christopher's highlander, maybe with Spike and Dawn finding the highlander in a tricky situation (and by this, i trust that you realise i mean rampant whumping), and helping him out? Not much of a challenge i'm afraid.

rethink: not only is it not much of a challenge, its also more suited to a fic than a drabble.

So try this instead: Whumping. Pure, unadulterated, gasping, whites of eyes whumping. Spike. Comfort provided by character of your choice. Make it brutal.

LOL! Now, I know Spike wouldn't use the spoon, the bowl, the cookies or the ice cream directly to try it. He'd be into a second hand scoop with Ice cream kisses and Monkey tongue.

I think you may have way too much thought into exactly what Spike was doing with his tongue then.
