FAKE Double Drabble: Village Idyll

Title: Village Idyll
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Ryo, Dee.
Rating: G
Setting: After the manga.
Summary: On vacation in England, Dee and Ryo go exploring.
Written Using: The tw100 prompt ‘Track’.
Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.
A/N: This one’s a double drabble.

There was a lot to be said for getting off the beaten track and doing a bit of exploring. In Ryo’s opinion, if you went on vacation to another country, you should take the time to see more than just the hotel, the beach, and the popular tourist attractions.

Dee had been a bit dubious; to him, vacations were for kicking back and relaxing. They worked hard all year, so surely when they got time off they deserved to be lazy. Why then had he let himself be talked into this? Probably because he could never say no to his baby.

Then again, the village was quaint, nothing like anything you’d find in the states, with thatched cottages, their front yards bursting with bright flowers, a pub at each end of the main street, a picturesque little church in the middle, and a handful of small shops. There was even a village green, complete with a duck pond full of quacking ducks. It was like stepping into a picture postcard.

“Isn’t this better than laying on a crowded beach?” Ryo asked as they sipped ale at a table outside one the pubs, following a delicious meal.

Dee had to agree.

The End


I'd like to go there, too.

I've visited many villages just like that on family holidays =)

Thank you!
I'm definitely more the vacationer like Dee, when I do get to take my vacations for actual time off and not just time mending or taking care of Drew mending. But I would so love to get to spend the time visiting a whole 'nother country too, so I can see the appeal. Good to have time to read your lovely stories again!!! I've missed them and have a whole Dee/Ryo folder I hope to tackle while I'm mending.
I'm more Ryo's type of vacationer, or used to be when I could still go on vacations. My parents made sure to pack in every museum, zoo, garden, castle, or other site of interest wherever we went. And plenty of quaint villages too. We have some truly beautiful little places here in the UK.

There are plenty of fics to keep you busy, just watch out for the NC-17 ones, I know they're not your cup of tea.

Thank you!
Good memory on the NC-17 thing! :)

We've often enjoyed going to the local zoos, and we once got to go to Disney way back in '95 and loved it. But as far as the big vacations, well, that's the only downfall of having so many babies. Kinda hard to go anywhere without them, impossible to put them all at the vet's, and nowhere near as easy to take them along with you as it is human children unfortunately.

But, hey, one day!
That's true. Fur family have to considered. Our neighbours always took care of hours when we were away so we never had to worry. We returned the favor. It's good to have people you can rely on but not everyone's lucky enough to have that.
They both make a valid point and I'm a big fan of doing both,
There should be time for both on the perfect vacation ;)

Thank you!
