Drabbles: Doyle and Phantom Dennis

8 and 9 of my 100 drabbles challenge, for those who are counting. If you suggested a character in my last drabbles post: Lorne, Warren, Dawn, Cordelia and Groo are up next.

Title: I Will Forget You
Author: Aurey09
Character: Doyle 
Timeline: I Will Remember You
Number: 8/100


“You don’t hang about do you.” Doyle noted, everything in the office had a price tag attached to it.

“It’s one of my strengths.” Cordelia said.

“As long as I get my cut.”

Angel walked in, still looking beaten up from the mohra attack - it was taking awhile to adjust to Angel being human - but something else was wrong.

“Is Buffy downstairs?”

“Yeah.” Doyle nodded, Angel left without another word.“Something seem off to you.”

“Well that’s love for you.” She said with regret, that’s when he realised it wasn’t just a crush he was in love with --

Title: Years Later I Still Remember You
Author: Aurey09
Character: Phantom Dennis
Number: 9/100 


Dennis always wonders what happened to Cordelia. They took all her things away. He’s not sure how long ago this happened, but long enough that many other people have lived here since. He doesn’t like them. He guesses the feeling is mutual because they call priests - that doesn’t work so they leave.

He hopes that Cordelia is alive, or if she’s dead not trapped somewhere too. He misses how she used to talk to him and tell him secrets. He wants to cry because he’s so lonely; he can’t but the people who have live here do it for him.

Ah, the Dennis one was so sweet and sad.

A haunting from the ghost's POV. I didn't really plan what to write for that one but I still think it turned out the best of the two.

I love Doyle's voice and it was perfect for the episode you did it for.

Phantom Denis I feel so sorry for... I have for a long time. He was such an awesome character. For not being there.

I wasn't sure about the Doyle one, it's one of those things that was better when I had the realisation that, that was what I was going to write about. I was trying to set the timeline to remind people of it.

I'm not certain if Doyle actually loved Cordelia I feel that he would have and I had him make the realisation and have that taken away from him because of Angel taking back the day. I'm not sure if it was too obvious or not clear. *head desk*

I did like the Phantom Dennis one.

#Warning geeking out# Jane Espenson created him and because he wasn't technically there she did get paid royalties when the reused the character - I'm going off on what she said on a DVD commentary.

Oh, your Dennis! *sob* He can come live with me.

Well done, Aurey.

You wrote the Phantom Dennis one! I know you said you'd get too it but this was quick. I love it. It was heartbreaking, but in a good way. And your Doyle one was excellent as well. :D

It was a good suggestion I couldn't resist. I was going to write it today but I was just in a really productive mood yesterday.

Thank you for the character prompt. I'll probably just make a post a asking for people for the character choices next time. I’ve got a lot of them to work on. :-)

Loved the Dennis one. Perfectly emotional. Doyle's was cute. :)

Thanks, the Dennis one flowed really well and fir really well in a drabble format.

The Doyle one was less spontaneous and it wasn't what I pictured in my mind - I think I had too many character and too much having to set the timeline in it but it worked out okay I guess.
