HAHAHAHAHA!

That's just brilliant. And trust Cordy to look for condolence cards rather than worry about paying child support :D

Pretty sure that the plan is for there to be no child to pay for. *g*

Yay. :)

YES. I enjoyed this. Especially when I imagined Wes and Giles being very politely hostile, until one or both spilled poor Cordy's latte.

Also, because I didn't mention this before, I also kinda like the implication re:Giles. And the question mark after "Yay" when he turns back!

Though, I am very concerned about the dangling plot thread that is Cordelia's drycleaning. **wibbles**

;)

Yanno, that line was one of those lines I had no intention of writing but which followed the previous line so beautifully that I couldn't unwrite it. So there it is.

OTOH, I feel that there is a high degree of ambiguity in that question mark. Read as you will. *g*

"But who will think of the drycleaning?!"

Thanks again. I'm tickled you liked the final product.

Oh, I meant the sucking line implication re:Giles. Not that I actually said that. **needs sleep**

Hee. I think Cordy is probably unimpressed with Giles in general. Whether he makes a better ~lady is certainly left ambiguous. :D

Yes. I figured that was the line you meant. But now I'm curious as to which line you thought I thought you meant...

I loved this. It was brilliant how you told a whole story with just little snips and glimpses. You made me lol more than once.

Hurrah! Lulz were definitely the aim here. I had an idea of expanding the idea into a real fic with, like, complete sentences, but somehow this seemed to work better. I'm glad you enjoyed. :)

Totally Cordy. Totally funny.

Hurrah! I haven't written Cordy very much; I'm thrilled to hear she's in true form here. Glad you enjoyed. :)

Hee! That was funny, though poor Giles. However will he explain that one to the kiddies?

Poor Giles indeed. In my head, there's a scene after the end of the fic where Cordelia 'comforts' him by relating her own demon pregnancy experiences, which he might or might not find actually comforting, depending on how miserable he is at the time.

Glad you enjoyed. :)
