Author's Summary: When Eddy’s world fails to make sense it isn’t always because of the substance abuse (crossover with "Absolutely Fabulous").
Recced because: I'm a sucker for crossovers, and this one manages to be extremely silly and perfectly logical, which is a neat trick if you can pull it off. Multi-era and great fun.
“You gotta spring me fast, Eddy.” Patsy rasped. Orange overalls were not a good look on her. “I can’t hack it in the Big House. Do you know what happens to the pretty ones in prison? They’ll eat me alive, Eddy. They’ll SUCK ME DRY!!!”
“No one’s going to suck you, sweetie,” Edina soothed. She glanced around the cell (small and dirty) before her gaze settled on the guard (large and clean). His natty red cap reassuringly indicated that someone around here understood about Matching Their Colours. “How exactly did you end up in military jail?”
Patsy’s pout would have been visible from orbit. “The bitch Jackie.”
“No. Not my sister. That’s the point.”
“I’ve lost you, sweetie.”
“Shame she bloody didn’t. ‘Did you know I was actually adopted, Patsy?’ Well, it was a relief to find that out, obviously. Sheltering under the same family tree as the cat-fancier was always a curse. But then she started waving around this kitschy little pocket-watch that the orphanage had just sent her. And when she opened it,” Patsy tried, from force of habit, to inhale on an imaginary cigarette, “that’s when things got weird.”
This ends my week of reccing; I hope you've enjoyed the stories.
later The mods have pointed out that I forgot to include lists of characters - I've gone back through the week and edited the entries accordingly. Apologies if this has caused problems for anyone
