Drabble the penultimate

I've decided that I can end the Batman / BtVS sequence with two epilogues, the second being the Superman / Oz scene I posted a couple of days ago, rewritten a little.

What I'm doing here with the first epilogue is skipping a lot of explanations about why Faith has decided to base herself in Gotham, and cutting straight to the end. Tell me if it works...

Epilogue I: Seventeenth Century

By Marcus L. Rowland

Founded in 1635, Gotham has plenty of crumbling architecture. The earthquake a while back didn't help.

"..and now we're gonna have a Hellmouth," says Faith, "if demon guy can't be stopped."

"Okay," says Batman, looking out across the city. "Etrigan opens the Hellmouth on Friday, a vampire's rising in Arkham cemetery tonight, and the Penguin's stolen $230,000,000 in Monopoly money."

"Yeah. What the hell is that about?"

"Damned if I know."

"You take the Penguin, I'll stake the vamp, meet here Friday for demon guy? Movie afterwards?"

"Works for me."

"It's a date."

They kiss, and vanish into the night.

I'll archive this tomorrow if you don't tear it to tiny shreds...
