Disclaimer: I own nothing to do with BTVS or Stargate: Atlantis. I’m merely playing.
Spoilers: S1 through “Thirty Eight Minutes”.
Note: Written for tthdrabbles prompt 58: first impressions. I’m assuming this is sometime after the show “Thirty Eight Minutes” while no one is in danger and Zelenka is studying the jumper’s systems.
Just a Suggestion:
There was swearing, at least from the tone Xander thought it was swearing. He moved around to the puddlejumper’s open hatch and peeked in. A guy had a panel open and was leaning over his touch screen. He was sweating and it was making his hair go puffy. Xander grinned, he’d found his own mad scientist.
“Hi,” he ventured.
The guy blinked at him, “Hello.”
He held out a hand, “Xander Harris.”
“Radek Zelenka.” They shook hands.
“I find when it’s that frustrating taking a step back is good.”
“I could use a breather.”
Xander got a smile.
