Loosen Up

Characters: Reid, Vi


"Whatcha readin'?"

"Watcher diaries."

"What're those?"

"Records of past slayers, their lives and deaths and the little bit in between."

"Sounds dull and depressing."

"No and yes."

"So why read it?"

"What do you mean, why read it?"

"It's depressing. Why spend time indoors on this beautiful Friday night reading musty old books written by stuffy British guys about dead girls?"

"Dead slayers."

"Ok, dead slayers."

"You really don't get it, do you."


"I'm a slayer."

"Freakishly strong, stunningly attractive short girl with a destiny. Yup, with you so far."

"They were slayers."

"Yeah, so?"

"Don't you have some hereditary book you're supposed to read when you get your powers? The Book of Damnation? I know Caleb was talking about it with Dawn..."

"Didn't read it."


"It was dull and depressing."

".... You're not going to go away, are you?"



"Because you're too pretty to be sitting indoors on this lovely Friday night, reading about long-dead girls whose life stories don't really apply to you."

"How does it not apply to me? Did you miss my whole slayer-is-me logic thing?"

"I heard. There's one big difference between them and you though."

"What's that?"

"You're not alone. So let's go do something... Vi, put the book down."



"Hey! Give it back!"

"Relax, I didn't even lose your place."

"You're not supposed to use your powers like that."

"Gonna tattle?"

"Don't make me hurt you."

"You wouldn't."

"Oh really?"

"I'm human."

"That's debatable."

"Come on Vi, loosen up, have some fun. You got a lot of livin' to do."

"You so just paraphrased a cheesy sixties musical."


A/N: You name the musical paraphrased and I give you a pairing of your choice.
