Traveler's Insurance Doesn't Cover This
Fandom: City of Villains/Black Sunday
Characters: Darkfire & Snow Fury
No warnings


"When did Portal Corporation start offering alternate-universe package tours?" Snow Fury asked, looking at the slim catalog Darkfire was browsing.

"They probably had budget cuts, and decided to make it up by charging people to be interdimensional tourists." Dark leafed through the catalog. "There's a bunch that aren't ruined wastelands."

Snow went to take the teakettle off the heat. "That's nice."

"Do you want to try one? We have powers, we could take care of ourselves in case of danger."

Snow shrugged. "I suppose so. But no wastelands or dystopias."

"Of course." Dark turned a page. "Johnson's Rome?"

"We can go to Cimerora for free."

"True... Dinosaur World?"

"No safaris or camping, dearest."

"That's right, no camping. Okay... The Great White Way?"

Snow paused in collecting her tea things. "What's that?"

"All musicals and show tunes, all the time. 'Visitors must show ability to extemporaneously sing, dance and join in choreographed routines'," Dark read.

"Oh, no." Snow knew how much Darkfire loved his show tunes, but she couldn't face a whole world of them. Plus choreographed dancing, too? No thank you.

"Disco Mundi? 'An enjoyable visit with all the comforts of modern home in a quaint and mythologized location.'"

Disco Mundi? Mundi meant world... Discworld, then? Snow had heard of it. A sort of British magical land, with modern amenities, if she remembered correctly. "That could be nice."

"Really?" Dark looked surprised. "You'll go there?"

"Why not? That one sounds fun."

"Okay then. I'll make the arrangements and pack for us."

Snow hated packing, so if Dark wanted to do it, she wouldn't stop him.

"Disco Mundi," Snow muttered as she tottered on her six-inch platform heels. "Disco World. Of course."

"Are you ready, sweets?" Darkfire wore a white polyester leisure suit that exposed his chest clear down to below his green-furred navel. At least a pound of gold chains hung around his neck.

"As I'll ever be." Her hair was excessively feathered rather than the giant platinum Afro originally recommended to her. How was she supposed to move in these shoes? "Let's, um, go ahead on."

Darkfire struck a pose. "That's the way, uh huh uh huh, I like it! Now let's hit the dance floor and get our freak on!"

Note: The original title was "Shine Your Love!" but that seemed too much of a giveaway. (Those of you familiar with the phrase will know what I mean.)

What, you didn't want them to shine shine shine shine shine shine shine their love? ;P

*cackles* Poor Snow! Although, for the record, "Disco World" was the first thing I thought of, when I saw that world name, and went, "No, Snow! Don't do it! You don't know what you're getting yourself into!" XD

Look, Darkfire already buffs his love, does he really need to shine it too? ;)

Darkfire would be thrilled to visit Disco World for a long weekend. Plus it's too hard for him to get a big green 'fro. Leisure suits, though, watch out!

I have a nine-minute mashup of disco songs with a techno backing that is actually really fun to listen to. Plus, picturing any of Black Sunday in disco attire...

I love disco. And I can soooo totally see Dark and Snow on a disco vacation, and Dark really really enjoying it. Chest open leisure suit ftw! Rowr!

I had no idea you liked disco!

And yes, Darkfire loves him some disco too. Disco and show tunes together = win, for him. Getting to actually dress in disco styles and boogie down? Now that's a vacation!
