Nerd Prom

Spike was finding it more than a little strange to stroll through a crowd in game face without people fleeing in terror. He shook his head as he heard a ripple of giggles from the pack of cute goth girls who'd been trailing him most of the day.

Dawn and Rachel were wandering about the convention in plain clothes, but they'd insisted that he and Declán blend into the crowd.

He'd crossed paths with Dec several times and shuddered at the pack of furries following in the werewolf's wake.

Spike swore that they'd never take another job at Nerd Prom.

Haha! Oh, furries.

They're an odd bunch.

::bursts into full-blown laughter::

Oh god, I can just see it... An earnest young voice, reaching out an admiring hand: "Hey, mister! How did you make your suit so seamless? It looks so real!"


Brava, Wolf. Love it. :D

And it's probably frowned up on to strangle the furries in the middle of a convention hall too. Poor Dec.

Rachel took pictures, you know. ::smirks:: To use as blackmail material the next time Dec balks at mowing the lawn.

She's especially fond of the one of him surrounded by a pack of toddler-puppies the mums made him pose for at the convention daycare. ;)

I think I'm more disturbed by the mother in that scenario.

Hehe! Great as always.

Many thanks! I liked the idea of pack of furries. Well, in print anyway. In reality, I'd rather not think about them enmasse.

lol the "oh angel" furies from season three, I can imagine those gals following Declane to get their "reward"
25th Jul, 2006 21:36 (UTC)
You seem to be confusing Furies with Furries.

Nerd prom!

Hm ...

why didn't they have those when I was a kid?

At least now you can afford the stuff they sell there. And you probably have more of an appreciation for the women wandering about in spandex.

In my experience, most of the people who go out in public wearing spandex will not get the emotional reaction they think they will.

*giggles madly at the thought of Declán being followed by furries*
26th Jul, 2006 06:38 (UTC)
It's always funnier when it's not you they're following.

lol! i can just imagine his pissed off expression when no-one runs away at his growls. fan-girl screaming just isn't the same. poor spike.

At least he got the cute groupies. I don't think anyone would willingly trade with Dec.

A pack of Furries - starts to feel sick at the thought of a sea of brightly coloured fake fur... bluegh.

It's not so much the cotumes themselves, but what they do in the costumes that's best not thought about. And, yay! Gingersnaps!
