Drabble: Unassuming

Lookee! Dollhouse fic! No explicit spoilers for DH, but I've put it under a cut anyway.

Unassuming
For penny_lane_42: Dawn Summers, Topher Brink. Mild would-be shippiness.

He reminded Dawn of Andrew. Blond, spazztastic, probably knew every Green Lantern incarnation. And, like Andrew: totally fixated on Slayers. How could a mostly-imaginary maybe-still-a-Key compare to Faith?

“Not separated at birth?” he asked Faith again.

Faith turned her back and whispered, “Geek makes me twitchy.” She eyed the ‘zen disciples’ in their synched tai chi. “So do they.”

“Yeah,” said Dawn. Something wrong here. The place was... palatial, that was the word. Not to mention creepy. But – head-shake from Willow – magic-free. The world’s other evils: not Council business.

No apocalypse here, Dawn thought. But he was sorta cute.

Oh, that's brilliant!

Blond, spazztastic, probably knew every Green Lantern incarnation.

Perfect description of them both!

Heee! Love it.

Pity Andrew isn't with them - he and Topher would have found a lot in common.

Hee, it's true. OTOH, I think Topher might get bored with Andrew's lesser (than Topher's) intellect before too long... :)

Ah! Topher-love! Dawn-love! Andrew-love! So much love!

And Topher thinking Faith is Echo's evil twin! I am so amused!

Well worth waiting for! I enjoyed it so much!

Yay!

(I confess, I think I buried the irony too deep in this one. Because those last two sentences are supposed to be smack-you-upside-the-head ironic, and if they're having that effect, no one's mentioned it so far.)

I meant to re-reply to this!

I honestly didn't pick up on it the first time, but now that you point it out it's so obvious and wonderful and I love it. Oh, Dawnie. How little you know.

That makes the whole thing a thousand times better!
