Fandom: Highlander
Pairing: Amanda/OMC
Challenge: Written for the highlander100 Challenge #126 - Shotgun Wedding
Disclaimer: All rights belong to Davis/Panzer. Unless Amanda's walked off with them again.

Horses clattered on the cobblestone street. Amanda ducked into a tiny church. An elderly priest was comforting a rough young man in a painfully neat suit. "How could she not come," Amanda overheard.

The polizia militare would be here any moment. No back door, nowhere to hide. Holy ground provided no sanctuary.

"I'm here, darling." Amanda stepped forward and pulled his hand to her lips for a brief kiss.

He looked up, startled. "Who…"

The door to the church banged open. Amanda let fear flash across her face. His eyes widened.

"Have some respect," he yelled. "This is my wedding!"

That's Amanda! Bat her eyelashes and use her sexuality to distract a man and get her out of trouble. Something tells me Antonio ended up with a good deal. ^.~

Antonio ended up with a good deal

Not quite what he'd had planned when he got up that morning, but still good.

Hee, lucky Antonio!

Having a beautiful, mysterious woman appear at the altar?

I *love* this! Yay for Amanda! Yay for the heartbroken groom!

Glad you enjoyed! If anyone could help a man get over being left at the altar, it's Amanda.

My brain insists this is set in war-time Italy, under Mussolini, btw. I have no idea why.

[claps!] Loved it!

Joe would love this tale. I do too...*g*

Wonder if Antonio is still sitting in the piazza reminiscing with his friends of a certain age about the beautiful spy he married during the War...

Of course!

His grandchildren only remember one wedding anniversary date. But Antonio celebrates two.

Huh! I thought I'd commented on this before -- so sorry, Keera! This is lovely, and so perfectly Amanda. (And I like Antonio a lot!)

Thank you, Rhi! Amanda certainly does use those feminine wiles, doesn't she?

This is absolutely wonderful!! Love his quick thinking.

I adore Antonio in this. In the middle of a personal crisis, he can still respond to a woman in need. Thanks for the comment, sparklebutch!

oh Well Done! ::applauds::
this is *perfectly* Amanda!
and your OC is wonderful...

Thanks springwoof! God, I haven't written a drabble in a while. I can't believe I managed to introduce both a scenario and an OC in 100 words.

Came over by way of crack_van.

Love this! It's very much Amanda, and Antonio is a hero for not succumbing to her charms right away :D.
Oct. 29th, 2008 02:46 am (UTC)
Thank you, Trovia! Antonio is a hero indeed, swooping to the rescue of a beautiful and mysterious woman.

What a lovely fun thing!

And doubly fun to have new Highlander fic from you :-)

*cough* February 2007 *cough*

But I'm delighted that you enjoyed it, and it was new to you! I'm working on something for HLH, in any case!
