Two Peas in a Pod : 10


"Holy sweet baby Jesus."

"...That's not a good thing, right?"

Duo blinked numbly at him for a moment.  "Did you see the proposal pics for the uniform redesign?"

Heero navigated to his inbox and clicked the link that he hadn't bothered clicking the first time.  "What about it?"

"Are you implying that the colors on your monitor are showing something different than mine?"

After a second of not being sure how to answer that, Heero went over to Duo's desk to take a look.  "What about it?"

Duo jabbed a finger at the image on his screen.  "What was wrong with the olive green?  It was a nice and traditional olive green!"

Heero squinted sideways at the new suggested color palette.  "And you would describe this as...?"

"Split pea soup!"

"...By which you mean, vomit-colored?"

"Vomit-colored.  Yes."

Heero frowned thoughtfully for a few moments before reaching out and smacking the side of Duo's monitor.  The display flickered briefly before settling down.

Duo stared at the pleasantly olive and navy color combination now showing on his screen.  "Oh.  Okay, never mind, outrage averted."

Heero snorted and went back to his desk.  "Throw some of that outrage at IT and req a new monitor."

"When people say you're great with computers, this probably isn't what they had in mind."

"When you tell people you're in a relationship, I'm probably not what they had in mind, either."

"Heh, true that.  Just goes to show, huh?"

One could describe the guys as being "out-of-the-box" thinkers, but that's assuming that the boys could even find the box in the first place. Or maybe they already found it and set fire to it.

I picture them as accidentally stepping on it and going, 'box? what box?' ^^

Bet Duo could get a whole new computer if he threatened to bring Heero down to request it. ^__^

I love how he just does the laying-on-of-hands and the monitor straightens right up. It knows what's good for it. ^___^

I had a monitor like this once.  I sort of fussed over this part, though, because that was an old CRT monitor and it makes sense to whack it.  I don't think it makes as much sense to smack an LCD monitor, and possibly even less sense to smack whatever monitor of the future they use. ^^'

I don't suppose these are just going to continue through the end of the month, are they? Because if not... I'm kind of sad now. Because there are only two more.
'Outrage averted'.... hehehehe... favorite line. Heero is better than just good with computers. :D

*snort* Yeah, right.  At most I have one extra because I didn't like this part that much, so I tried to write another one, but I liked that one even less, so that one got mothballed and this one got posted instead.  Otherwise, there are only two more, and then *sigh* back to writing f&b.  I'm totally out of that groove now.

Heero's method of dealing with the monitor seems like something Duo would do. Maybe Duo is rubbing off on him. :-)
