Just a bit of mucking about in other people’s sandboxes.Word count:
…is that it’s funny. Sometimes even when the spell goes mostly right, things still turn out wrong. Well, MOST of the time when Faith’s involved and bored.Author’s Note:
*dithers* This only kinda works for the pairing or the prompt...as at least half the fic is implied. But, I can't NOT post it.
Faith wandered around the Magic Box poking at this and that. She held up a tarnished locket. “What’s this do?”
Anya barely glanced up from the account books. “Magical aid in time of need or something. Doubt it works. Now stop asking stupid questions – I’m busy!”
Geez, Anya was being bitchy. What she needed was a good –
There was POP and a man appeared, stark-naked, in the middle of the shop.
“Faith! What did you DO?” It had sounded angry in Anya’s head, but it came out more like a gasp of delight.
“Nothing, I was just thinking …Oh!” Faith studied the locket, then the man. “Guess it does work.”
The man seemed oddly unphased. “Ladies? Where am I?”

He flashed a smile. “Captain Jack Harkness.”
With a nod to Anya, he casually strolled to the back room.
