Drabble: Paris Sucks (Harmony)

For the 10 minutes I was actually there, Paris was fine.



Title: Paris Sucks
Warnings: None.
Character: Harmony
Summary: Reality doesn't live up to the fantasy


Paris sucked.

At least Harmony thought so. So far she hated it.

Wasn’t the city supposed to be romantic? Some chance. She was just as lonely as ever.

She crossed her arms over the railing and rested her head. She missed Spike like she never thought she ever would, but Paris was going to be their special place. He’d promised her dancing and designer shopping and romantic midnight strolls along the river, before grabbing a bite to eat together and sucking them dry.

At least he’d nodded when she’d suggested all that.

That was as good as a promise, right?

Oh poor girl, such the romantic. Pity Spike's heart lay elsewhere!

She just can't resist him.

Poor Harmony. She's so good at convincing herself of whatever she wants.

She isn't stupid, just has too much imagination. Well. Okay. She's stupid.

You have to feel sorry for her though. She can never figure out why the world isn't revolving the way she wants it to.

I always have felt sorry for Harmony. But she needs to actually carry out the lessons in her self-help books.

But that's her tragedy. She thinks she is carrying out the lessons, and she's working damn hard at it, but she filters those lessons through the same program that she uses for everything in her life.

I'm trying very hard to think of a reply to that, buT ALL I can think of is: Yeah.

I'm stuck between aww and hee... What a bizarre place to be!

PS. On holiday at moment, so sorry if I fail at comment convos...

Ooh anywhere nice? Or bizarre maybe?

Munich at the moment (on a friend's posh iPhone), but we're travelling to Rome tomorrow and then onto Paris like proper Euro Trippers. I have taken far too many photos... 'Tis fun!!

Not quite the dream she had imagined. And in my twisted mind I think Harmony in Paris would be perfect for a Highlander crossover. Maybe inspiration will strike and I will write one.

I doubt Paris is as much fun on her own.

I've never seen Highlander, I couldn't possibly comment!
