Vexation

Vexation"They're horrible." Andrew spun himself around in his office chair.

"Granted," Giles agreed. "But surely you can handle a group of little girls."

Andrew planted his feet on the floor and stared at Giles in horror. "Little girls? Most of them are taller than I am. You only had to deal with one Slayer, I get them en masse and just when they start to respect me, I get a new batch. Can't I just drop them down an elevator shaft?"

Giles savoured the thought a moment too long. "That would be wrong."

"Launch them from a trebuchet?"

"No."

"Damn."

Trebuchet vs. elevator shaft. Andrew's much, much kinder than you would be. *grins*

I can see my house from heeeeeeerrrrrrreeeeee......
Oh, come on ... how's he going to get them on the trebuchet? He'd end up being the one flying through the air.
But if Giles is so willing to agree with him, they have a real problem!

You need to get them one at a time. Tell them there's a really good view of closed lot where they're shooting that new Brad Pitt movie if they climb up onto the sling.

I may have put a bit to much thought into slinging junior Slayers.

Slinging Slayers
Yeah, there is the question of why you put so much time into the idea, but we all have our dark sides.

The Brad Pitt idea is excellent. We mustn't forget that they're slayers, but they're still young women. Which, speaking of dark sides, is most likely one reason why I became so interested in the show.

Or, he could drop a very large safe on their heads - oh no, that's Roadrunner!

Poor Andrew, all them rough, unattractive girls. ;)

The safe never worked that well for the coyote. Shame, I hated the roadrunner. He needed a good eating.

Maybe Andrew could bond with them over Tombstone. Many pretty boys in leather.

*grin* - perfect line

Poor Andrew. He's not having the easiest of times, is he?

I don't think too many people would care to be in his shoes.

*imagines several people who really deserve to be launched from a trebuchet over cliffs*

Thank you for that image!

It is rather enjoyable, isn't it?

I really, really need a trebuchet for the office.

But...
I don't know why you removed me. I thought you were cool. You were one of my most interesting Flist people. Not to mention a fantastic writer and icon-maker.

But if that's what you want, I guess I'll see ya 'round. I'm dismayed, but no hard feelings.

Keep up the good writing.

Re: But...
I follow LJ for fiction, so most of the people on my flist are either writers or people I know through means outside of LJ.

I've cut my flist back a lot because it was getting unwieldy. Most of those cuts were because either the writer's interests or mine have moved in different directions.

If you feel you can't read my fics without your being on my flist, that is your decision to make.
