Billy / Viggo
drabble for lotrips100 challenge
Porridge

It was at breakfast, three days after shooting Weathertop, that the other hobbits noticed something was going on.

Elijah said "Dude, you're staring!"

Sean reached over with a serviette and wiped the porridge off Billy's face.

Dominic -- unusually tactful -- changed the subject from Viggo's amazing abilities with a sword to Orlando's latest prank.

"What the fuck?" thought Billy, and aimed his spoon more carefully.

A line of Shakespeare surfaced, "Even so quickly may one catch the plague?"

His brain annotated automatically,: "Twelfth Night, Act One, Scene Five, Olivia on love."

He ate another spoonful of porridge, and wondered about himself.



ETA, I'm off the the doctor with the kidlet, then the in-law's for a visit. Back on Monday, latish.

Oh, this was lovely. I know I've told you this before, but again, I think you write with more subtlety and intelligence than anyone.

Hope the kidlet is not very sick.

Thank you darling! I know drabbles are an odd form, and I'm thrilled you think well of mine.

Kidlet just had a rash, but it was a very. long. day.

Wow. Subtle, very subtle. I like stuff that doesn't come with its own anvil!

You couldn't have paid me a greater complement. I know you wouldn't say it if you didn't mean it, so, thank you very much.
