Cuddles

I'm looking around and I can say with absolute certainty that I am not a happy camper. Going by the look of things the demon we were fighting a couple of seconds ago had the power to create a portal to a different dimension and as far as I'm concerned that is never a good thing. Still, there's nothing we can do about it now. I mean, why couldn't Giles or Willow have figured that one out before we got sucked into... well, into wherever this place happens to be?

The good news --if you can call it that-- is that we are all here, reasonably safe and accounted for with no demons in sight. The bad news is that we are all here and that could make it a lot harder for us to go back to our own dimension, especially because I don't think supplies are going to be easy to come by. After all we seem to be stuck in a childish cartoon world that appears to be so cute you could die. A part of me should be relieved by that fact but my spider sense is tingling like crazy and, years of being the slayer have taught me to take its warnings seriously, regardless of how odd those warnings may seem to be at times... besides, it's not just my spider sense that's tingling.

Even though this place looks cute enough to kill a diabetic in a matter of seconds, one look at Anya is more than enough for me to realize that there's more to it than meets the eye. She is literally shaking with fear and --considering that she is a thousand-year-old demon who has eviscerated countless men without batting an eyelash-- that is deeply disturbing. In fact, going by her reaction, you'd think this is some sort of hell-dimension, not a cartoon playground with --out of all things-- a goofy-looking blue moose with yellow antlers... one of which seems to be growing upside down.

I'm still thinking about that when I see more weird critters appear, including a blue skunk that is wearing what seems to be a pine scented air deodorizer around its neck; a pink chipmunk and a purple beaver. I shake my head at that and turn my attention back to the others and then I realize that Anya is not only looking paler than she did a few seconds ago but she is also whimpering softly, even as Xander pulls her into a reassuring hug.

More than a little confused I turn around in time to see a soft and cuddly yellow bunny with a heart-shaped nose approaching... in fact, except for the moose, all of these critters seem to have pink, heart-shaped noses.

Shaking my head I dismiss that fact as irrelevant and try to focus on our current predicament. We don't have time to worry about Anya and her fear of bunnies, not right now. Right now what we have to do is figure out a way to make it back home 'cause it doesn't look like there's much of anything slay-worthy around here... except whoever it is that's singing that very annoying song.

Author's notes: Hi guys, okay this is just a bit of nonsense I couldn't get out of my mind that probably won't make much sense for most readers. If you are wondering what this is about, it is a crossover with Happy Tree Friends, a series of pretty twisted cartoons (if someone wants to watch a little sample to meet the characters, including Cuddles, you can find a few episodes here: http://mondo.happytreefriends.com though I have to warn you that the cartoon does feature extreme violence and is not suitable for children).

Also, I have to admit that I had to guess what the appropriate category for this thing was supposed to be, so if it doesn't belong in the Freak Parade I apologize for my mistake.
