Fic: Guns

Title: Guns
Characters: Riza and Rebecca (Riza/Miles, Havoc/Rebecca in the background)
Word Count: 181
Rating: PG for mild innuendo
Summary: Competitive Rebecca is competitive.
Notes: For randomcheeses' prompt, "Riza and Rebecca, discussing their men." This went Wrong Turn 'verse on me.



"Have you measured them?"

Riza gave Rebecca a look. The sort of look she frequently found herself giving Rebecca. "Why would I even do that?"

"Just, you know. To get a fuller picture of the goods in question?"

"And not in any way so you can compare my boyfriend's bicep measurement with your boyfriend's bicep measurement?"

"We could compare them with the poke test, too," said Rebecca. She took a thoughtful sip from her water glass. "No, wait, arm wrestling. They're both big macho guys, I bet we could talk them into it."

Riza was fairly sure that at least one of their boyfriends had slightly more dignity than that.

"And hey, weights," said Rebecca. "How much can Miles bench-press?"

"I don't know," Riza lied.

"Okay, after lunch. I'm going to borrow a tape measure from Supplies. I'll do Jean, and you can do Miles. Care to bet?"

"No," said Riza. "And I don't want to hear any other measurements, either," she added quickly.

Rebecca raised both index fingers and started drawing them apart, one eyebrow raised.

Riza flipped up her menu like a shield.

Rebecca is so incorrigible. I just have to start typing and off she goes. I don't know what this says about me.

Thanks!

It says your amazing for writing havoc.rebecca so awesomely! And for writing havoc/rebecca period.

Aww, thank you! I bow to enemytosleep's ability to channel Rebecca, though, it's uncanny.

I absolutely love this. Rebecca would SO DO THAT... and Jean would GRIN and let her measure...

Ha! Yes, exactly. Rebecca knows she can get away with it.

TOTALLY laughing that Riza had to lie about knowing how much Miles can bench press!!

Well, of course they'd go to the gym together and spot each other! I'm picturing that and a lot of dog walking.

Boo to Sciezka not having that... since she wouldn't. Though Jean MIGHT give # updates on stuff like that. She's always suitably impressed. SHE KNOWS he can bench press her. ;)

OK and maybe she's noticed that his arms are almost as big around as her thighs. (When I was tiny, mine measured under 16 inches around... then again, my biceps/arms were under 9.)

Boo, but I bet she's impressed. And of course he can demonstrate on her. XD

Those insane positions don't just HAPPEN!!!

AND a lot of things are a LOT easier given that she's got someone barely breaking a sweat spotting her... well... doing a lot of the holding, she's just balancing. ;) OR... she wouldn't be UP there if she didn't know he'd catch her.

I'm still giggling about the ladder thing. (NO, that one hasn't ever been tested "live".)

Hah! I'm imagining Riza measuring Miles, and it involves a lot of raised eyebrows and sheepishness.

All round, I should imagine. They would treat Rebecca's more extreme antics the way my cats treat grooming: size up whether it's easiest just to stay still and co-operate, and then bolt as soon as they see a window of opportunity.

This was awesome!

Man. This reminds me of my silly wish that the manga could have had like five pointless spin-off chapters of just Riza and Rebecca talking...

God, Rebecca. <3 And the thing is, she'll probably only get MORE THIS WAY with age. XD

Rebecca is incorrigible and will only become more so, and I love it. I wish Arakawa had done that too, man. I don't know what it says about me that I find Rebecca's dialogue so easy to write.

Thanks!
