The Start of Something Beautiful
Summary: Drabble. Part of the tribute to Andy Hallet and an untold episode of Tales from the Barman. Xander offers Lorne a job at Nights.
Spoilers: Angel, Not Fade Away.
Disclaimers: I don’t own Lorne or Xander. They are owned by Mutant Enemy and Joss Whedon. The Tales from the Barman concept and the bar Nights was created by Methos.
A/N: I was surprised to hear about the death of Andy Hallet of the Eden Studios Angel RPG board and here on TTH. This drabble is my small tribute to Andy and Lorne. I always liked the character on Angel, and wish his loved ones my sympathy. On to the story...
"You got Lorne. Sweetcheeks."
"Hey Lorne. It's Xander Harris."
"What can I do for you?"
"I want you to work for me."
"I'm out. I told Angel that."
"No. I want you to run karaoke at Nights."
"You own Nights?"
"Yeah. Heard of it?"
"Most definitely. Quite the happening place."
"It'll be your show. Run it however you want."
"Wards, Slayers, Paranormals, assorted deities, the usual. So whaddayasay?"
"I'll do it. So when do I start?"
"Whenever you want."
"Good. I think this will be the start of something beautiful."
And you know what?
