Dandie Dinmont Terrier, Dental Work, Dialog Only  
Title: Dandie Dinmont Terrier, Dental Work, Dialog Only
Series: 1_million_words prompts
Rating: PG
Character(s): Steve/Danny
Summary: kaige68 posted a list of prompts for 1_million_words. Done are the D prompts.
Words: exactly 500
Warnings/Notes: None. Silliness. Some misuse of language for the greater good. No alliteration in this one. My brain almost short-circuited from doing them. Alliterations again among assorted assignments approaching. (At least I hope there will be.)

“I’m really sorry about your jaw. I tried to stop you before the scum bag du jour could hit you with that brick. But do you ever listen to me? No you do not. And what was the result this time, Steven? Possibly a broken jaw.”

“ah hafe oo.”

“You do not hate me. It is not my fault your mouth is wired shut. Anyway, the dentist said it’s only for a couple of days. Until the swelling goes down and they can access the extent of the damage. Which you would know if you weren’t high as a kite on the good stuff.”

“stll hafe oo.”

“Stop. You don’t hate me. How much worse would it be if I wasn’t able to drive you home and take care of you while you wait to see just how much dental work is required? Plus I can kiss your boo-boos and make them feel better. You’ll drink some pineapple juice with Vicodin crushed up in it, I’ll strip you naked, and have my way with you while you are zoned out.”

“hafe ooo sooo mush.”

“I’m propositioning you and your response is that you hate me? I don’t even understand that. You wait right here while I pick up your prescriptions. Don’t move. Promise me.”


“Okay. I won’t be long. Do you want anything while I’m inside?”

“ananas, pple ouice, epermen addies.”

“Bananas, apple juice, and Peppermint Paddies. Got it. Be back in a flash.”

“hafe ooo.”

“You can keep saying that but it won’t change anything. We’ll be home in just a minute and you can take the Vicodin.”


“Did I tell you that Rachel has decided she wants a dog? Now that Mr. Hoppy is living with us, she’s all about getting this Dandie Dinmont Terrier. I don’t even know. But if it makes her happy and Stan’s okay with it, what do I care? Grace is kind of indifferent about it.”

“ot cited?”

“No, Grace isn’t excited. I think she’s afraid Beauregard will be ignored once Rachel has a designer dog in the house. I’m worried it will turn out to be an alien like Mr. Hoppy.”

“ot ogs. ust unnies.”

“Sure, you say not dogs, just bunnies. But you were the one who didn’t tell me Grace was cuddling an alien. Don’t think I’ve forgotten that for one minute. Hey hey. Let me help you. You are still high from the meds. You can accept a little help to get to the house.”

“ot a id.”

“I know you aren’t a kid, Steven. You also aren’t Superman, able to cross the yard while high on pain killers. You are the most stubborn bastard I have ever met. I swear to God I don’t know why I ever thought it was a good idea to get involved with you. I should have shot you that first day in the garage.”

“oo ove me.”

“God help me, I do. I do love you. Now go to sleep.”

E-prompts exist existentially. Execution expected eventually.

Thank you so much, BB. So glad you enjoyed it!!!

I was a little worried the "narrative flow" would be lost but I guess it worked out, huh?

Adore this (my mom wanted a Dandie 'til she saw a Skye)
Great dialog!

Thank you so much!! I'd never heard of those dogs until they showed up in the prompt. They look awfully cute!

Thank you again!

Thank you so much!! Still your fault, you know!!!

Are you planning to post prompts past E? Or do I need to find random prompts on my own? OR you could provide more to me as my personal prompt prompter. Because I feel committed now, like I need to finish the alphabet. Or possibly need to be committed. You know - either one.

(sigh) do you seeeee what you've done to me???

I see what I've done, and I like it!!!

(I will contact you telepathically with the next series of prompts. I was planning to put them up next weekend for my challenge! But for you, a sneak peak. Or maybe I'll just PM you. hmmmm)

HAHA! These are all so brilliant. I'm having so much fun reading them all. You must have had a blast writing them. Love how Danny can understand every single word Steve speaks even with his jaw wired shut. I so want to see him take advantage of Steve. Oops, did I say that out loud? ;-P

So sweet, cute and funny. Love that they have their own language and Danny can translate for Steve. Great running conversation, especially Danny's plans for Steve after the Vicodin. lol
