minkhollow: W13: Claudia playing guitar (doesn't remind us of musetta's waltz)

[The scene: Hot Topic, the other night. Quinn and I went to the mall for dinner and to decompress a little, and decided to go looking for cosplay pieces for the summer. We find a good bit and check out. My shirt, as this is relevant to the discussion, is a Hitchhiker's Guide shirt Woot had up last summer.]

Guy 1: You know what's never worked outside of the book format? Hitchhiker's Guide.
me: I liked the movie for what it was!
Guy 1: I hated it!
[The three of us go back and forth on the merits and drawbacks of the movie for a while. Highlights include: Why is the only black guy in the thing the alien (him); why didn't they even try with Zaphod's second head (me); and all-around 'why can no one cast Trillian right' (he didn't like Zooey Deschanel; I think she's a major improvement over the blonde woman in the TV show).]
Guy 2: You guys spend way too much time thinking about this stuff.
Quinn: We just spent like 20 minutes looking for cosplay pieces based on a TV show.
Guy 1: What show?
us, in unison: Warehouse 13.
Guy 2: So you're... what, Claudia?
me: Yep!
Guy 2: You need a haircut.
me: Oh, I know, I'm a foot past needing one anyway.
Quinn: I'm going as Joshua!
Guys: ...
Quinn: Claudia's brother?
Guy 2: ...*Why?* I mean, why not the lady who runs the B&B and... with the auras?
Quinn: I am *not* Leena. My second choice would be Helena, but...
Guy 2: But then you could be a G with a grappler!
[The actual answer, for the record, is that Joshua is awesome! Also we slip into character so easily that it kinda needs to be him.]

Meanwhile, Fic Friday! Leave prompts here if you're so inclined and I'll drop you a couple sentences or so of fic.

for [personal profile] ceitfianna:
chaos,
Red almost loses track of Snow in the middle of the battle, but the good news is no one's thought to use scent bombs.

boom,
"Okay, so it was an explosion, but it wasn't nuclear, dynamite or much of anything else we can pin down."
"Artifact."

belief,
"You don't think it's possible, do you? Seriously, Artie, I've fixed *enough* around here, I though you'd know better by now."

trust,
It takes Ruby a while to convince Victor to talk to *anyone,* never mind an unknown quantity in town. But she does.

tomorrow,
They have no way of knowing what tomorrow will bring; despite herself, Rebecca likes that element of risk.

control,
Ruby never thought she'd have to relearn control of the wolf. She doesn't intend to forget it a second time.

seesaw,
Regulus can't figure out this song, or what playground equipment has to do with it, but it's catchy. (For context: the song in question.)

childhood,
Everyone still treats Claudia like a kid, never mind that her brother's been gone for two whole years.

needing you
"You need some company tonight, whether you want to admit it or not. One monster to another, remember?"

for [personal profile] ladyoflorien:
Snow,
When Mary - Snow - does finally tell her the whole story, Red's not all that surprised; it makes all the pieces fit.

Reluctant Understanding,
Apollo sighs. "Dad dammit, Artemis, I hate it when you're right."

Fill Me Up,
Joshua's visiting and everyone's camped out in the B&B living room watching movies. Claudia grins.

You Let Me Down
"We turned each other away on a *talking hat's* say-so, Sirius. Can't you see how bloody stupid that is?"

Guy 1 is aware that Hitchhiker's Guide was a radio show before it was a book, right?
