Teaser: “Reno, I believe we've had words about you drugging your partner.”
Inspiration: The prompt for “SinsofMidnight's Writers Challenge” was Tweet.
Rating: K+, surprisingly. I've never written anything with a rating so low >.<
Warnings: -Illness -Mentions of drugging someone -Not thinking things through -Lazy Reno -Weird sense of humor?
Main Pairing: (hints of) Tseng/Reno
Minor Pairings: N/A
Setting: It's in-universe (for once). Just an average day with the Turks, I guess.
POV: Reno and Tseng, in a series of seven phone messages. They alternate a little, but you should be able to tell whose is whose... It gets a bit confusing at the end, because the last two are from the same character.
Summary: It's surprising that the Turks don't get tired of leave voice-mail messages for each other.
Additional ANs: The details of this particular prompt specified that I had to tell a story in a series of seven parts with 140 characters or less, the same number you can use in a tweet on Twitter. I've got a fascination with what I like to call “Voice-Mail Tag”. It's shown up in another of my stories (“Worth Fighting For”, an AU Star Ocean III fic) and it added some amusement to the tale. When I thought about the prompt, short voice-mails or text messages seemed the only way to go.
Word Count: 139 words. I hope the story flows okay... x.x
"Uh, boss? I think Rude might be sick, yo... He doesn't look so hot right now. Call me back when you get this."
"Reno, I believe we've had words about you drugging your partner. What did I tell you about doing that?"
"Uh... not to? But seriously, he's really sick and it's not my fault this time, I promise!"
"If he's really that ill, take him to see Professor Hojo, Red. It's not rocket science."
"No way! Seriously, boss: do you want Hojo to experiment on Rude? Because I've heard him mutterin' about wantin' a new test subject..."
"No, we don't want that. I'd have to explain what happened... Well, then, use Cure on him!"
"Taking into consideration the fact I can see the pile of paperwork on your desk from inside my office, I'll see you soon, Red..."
