Notes: Written for pdxscaper and her holiday exchange drabble prompt, "John, Rygel, eggnog." Thanks to my beta, simplystars.

"Okay, Sparky, what'd you dig up?" John asked, list in hand. "Milk?"

Rygel produced a small, lidded bucket.

John peered inside, dipped a finger in, and popped it in his mouth. "Green, but it tastes fine. Alcohol?"

"Hardly a challenge," Rygel scoffed, pulling two brown glass bottles from his bag.

John opened one and sniffed. "Whew! Moonshine, that'll work. Sugar?"

"Dried karpathia sap," Rygel said, sprinkling a few crystals into John's hand from a velvet pouch. "Sweet, yet spicy."

John licked them. "Nice! And the eggs?"

Rygel unlatched a plastic case and beamed proudly at the dozen albino beetles within.

Aww. I kind of miss Rygel. He was so innocently scruple free.

He really, really was. A rogue of an Emperor.

The albino beetles make this for me. They're so Rygellian. An inspired touch! :D

*grins* The first draft I wrote had John freaking out, and Rygel explaining how he'd listened very carefully to Crichton's description, and listing the reasons why the albino beetles were definitely eggs.

I'm glad you enjoyed, thanks for letting me know, kixxa!

*vbeg* See, I think there needs to be that sequel drabble. Because John would so very definitely freak out... but I wanna see him lick the beetles!

Yeeeeew! (or at least sniff them and tap their little white albino shells) *g*

No, see, you crack open the shells, and the insides are nicely liquidized by the Krevbeast venom.

Hee! John and Rygel do make an excellent team, at times. Albino beetles have to be more edible than dentics, though, right? *g*

At least the beetles don't move, which is a big plus from John's POV. Thanks for the comment, kernazelda!

John's totally gonna freak. I'm glad you liked it, pdxscaper! I'm not feeling any drunken John & Rygel fic coming on right now, but please, be my guest, I'd love to read it!
