So we saw Enchanted tonight. And then we got ice cream, and
ficlet is what popped into my head. If you’ve seen the movie hopefully
it will make you smile. If not, well… I have no idea!
Duncan, Methos, Amanda, and Triona go to see ‘Enchanted’. Totally
fluffy with no redeeming social value whatsoever – and proud of it!
Rated: PG -- no chipmunks were
injured in the course of this story.

“So why haven’t I ever heard you

Amanda pressed her fingertips against
her chest, mouthing, ‘me?’.

his head shot around. “Not you too!”
“Sorry, “ Triona said, not very
“You three have your fun, but there
are worse things than being a romantic!” He was practically pouting.
“Oh, yes, far worse things,” Methos
“Just because you’re too cynical to
believe in happily ever after!”
“Hey, which of us is wearing a ring?”
Methos demanded, waving his left hand in Duncan’s general direction.
“Being married doesn’t make you
romantic,” Duncan grumbled in response, “no matter how many times
you’ve done it!”
“This is where you defend me, “
Methos pointed out to his wife, wrapping his arms around her.
Leaning against his chest, she tilted
her head back to look at him. “Is it? I always lose track.”
was practically in hysterics at this point. “This is what I mean, Trie,
men are way more trouble then they’re usually worth. If it were us,
we’d already be home, actually, you know, being romantic.”
Duncan looked shocked and Methos
“Don’t even go there!” Triona warned,
smacking his hand.
“Why not?” he whispered in her ear.

Duncan smoothed a hand across her
hair. “You’re in my arms, and all the world is calm, the music playing
on for only two.”

“We always knew he had it in him!”
Methos said, laughing.
“Do you have a chipmunk?” Triona
