Summary: Treat, or trick?

NOTES: My response to iamstillthemoon’s Halloween challenge. I could not resist. This has to be the fastest I have ever EVER written anything and posted it, so I will not vouch for quality on this one. At all.

Subtle Hint, Halloween Ed.

“Trick or treat!”

“Danny, what are you doing?”

“It’s Halloween! Trick’r’treat!”

“You’ve got red on you…”

“I’m a zombie policeman officer! RRRRRrrrrrr…”

“Danny!” Nicholas pushed Danny out of his office door.

“C’mon, Nicholas! Loosen up! It’s Halloween! Didn’t you ever go trick’r’treating as a kid?”


“No trick’r’treating?”


“At all?”

“At all. My parents were Catholic, Danny, very strict. No pagan celebrations allowed.”

“Halloween isn’t pagan.” The zombie looked thoughtful.

“Yes, it is. And if even if you want to, er, trick or treat, the office is not the right place for it.”

“No treats?”

“Where did you get that?”

“It’s just a plastic pumpkin. You use it to collect treats.” Danny shook it.

“Danny, it is nearly full. I thought you were….walking…the…beat…oh, Danny…”

“Everyone gives out treats on Halloween, Nicholas.”

“Not me.”

“There is a law, you know.”

“About giving out treats? I don’t think so.”

“Oh no, Nicholas. About not giving out treats. You don’t give out treats,” Danny shook his pumpkin in Nicholas’ face, “…then you get tricked.”

“What?...Danny, stop, back off, I’m working…this is my office…DANNY!


“You got red on you, Nicholas.”

Rofl. That's great. And I have this image in my head of Danny smirking like a mad thing, and Nicholas pining over the loss of his pristine uniform.

I love these, they're little pocket sized bits of fandom that I can consume in a hurry.

hee hee...funny, funny, funny.

I agree, Nicholas would be so unhappy that his uniform had red on it.

The shaking of the plastic pumpkin even made my lurker friend (who is sitting here reading fic with me) laugh.

it's a in-house lurker who visits on days off from work. then it just lurks from its own home. but in-house lurkers are fun to have!

Awesome. And you know that red'll never come out, and he'll totally make Danny buy him a new shirt.

TOTALLY will make Danny buy them BOTH new shirts! LOL!

Thanks for commenting - glad you enjoyed it!
