Notes: This is for the sixth [link=http://boards.theforce.net/fan_fiction_resource/b10304/31719208/p1/?16]Ultimate Drabble Challenge[/link]. And it's based on an amazing show. [hr] Week 1 1. Lights! ?Will you please close those blasted curtains?!? ?Just because you?re a vampire, Nikola, does not mean that you are vulnerable to the sun,? Magnus replied. Telsa gave her a blank look. ?I may not sparkle or turn into ash, Helen, but that does not mean that I like the sun in my face while I?m working,? he told her. Magnus just shook her head at him and walked away, heels clacking on the floor as she went. ?Helen? Oh, come on!? ?Get over it, Nikola. And do it yourself. Stop being a self-absorbed imbecile.? ?Vampire, remember? I?m not an imbecile!? [hr] 2. Camera! Ashley had always hated it when she saw the security cams moving around of their own accord. That meant that Henry was up to something. She didn?t always know what, but she knew that, at the very least. Henry enjoyed snooping. It was one way to put his tech skills to good use. His excuse was that he was learning?and that way he could keep Magnus from forgetting things. In all reality, he was just being nosy because he could. The funny thing was, he never got caught unless it was something really important. It was like Magnus knew everything. [hr] 3. Action! Will did not sign up for this when he told Helen Magnus that he would join her team at the Sanctuary. Oh, no. He had not signed up to be going after some giant bug creature. He hadn?t signed up to be attacked by his friend or end up dying or anything like that. He wouldn?t admit it if he was asked until long after he had started. In the end, he wouldn?t trade it for the world. He was happy there. He wanted to be there. It was a family No matter what happened. They were always a family. [hr] 4. Roll! Fifteen years had passed. Fifteen. Years. Helen could barely believe it as she looked out over the city. Fifteen years since Ashley? She still couldn?t think about it. It still hurt too much. Letting go did not mean that the pain was gone when she thought of her daughter. A hand appeared on her shoulder out of nowhere a moment later. She looked over to see John standing behind her. He gave her a weak smile and pulled her close. She turned in his arms, pressing herself against his chest. Here, at least, she was safe from the surging pain. [hr] 5. Shoot! An explosion rocked the Sanctuary to its foundation. ?Nikola!!? Tesla winced when he heard Helen shrieking his name from her office. Oops. That had probably been a bad idea. Maybe. Oh, whatever. She appeared a moment later, looking furious. ?What do you think you?re doing?? she demanded. Tesla shrugged. ?The usual. Experimenting. Emptying your wine cellar. Making things explode when I accidentally shoot them. You know.? ?Nikola?? ?Lucky me. I made Helen angry. That?s not something you see every day,? Tesla said dryly, reaching for his glass. Helen had to fight not to slap the smirk off of his face.
