Summary: Victoria has an important purchase to make.

Author notes: Another of [livejournal.com profile] pushkin666's [livejournal.com profile] help_pakistan ficlets. Many thanks to  [livejournal.com profile] dreamersdare for the beta. Title from The World Has Its Shine (But I Would Drop It On A Dime) by Cobra Starship. Because I'm still lame.

She goes to Andy, of course she does. Everyone knows that if you want quality, you go to Andy.

“Victoria, always a pleasure,” he says, greeting her warmly. They’re not exactly close friends, but it’s impossible to stay strangers for long at Unmarked Place. Andy is not Family, Victoria doesn’t think he’s even really that into the scene, but he does have an excellent reputation.

“What can I get you today?” Andy asks. This isn’t the first time Victoria has popped into his shop to purchase something.

She hesitates, wavering. Not because she’s unsure, she’s not, it’s just that this is a big thing. “I want a collar.” Her mouth feels dry and there’s a nervous flutter at the bottom of her stomach. She has to grip the counter for support.

“Okay,” Andy smiles and pulls out a display case. “Well, I’ve got several here that—”

“No,” Victoria interrupts, laying a hand on Andy’s arm. “I want a Collar.” She holds his gaze, pouring her heart into the words. “For Nate.”

“Oh,” Andy says and his smile deepens, turns into genuine delight. “Well, you better come and sit down then. We can talk about specifications.”

Victoria follows him to the backroom, already digging for her notes and sketches. She knows exactly what she wants; how she wants the collar to look and who she wants to be wearing it. The only thing she doesn’t know for sure is whether Nate will accept it. But she hopes.

Oh, how she hopes.

You are making it interesting to get to know the characters and wonder what happens next. I'm obviously going to have to take the time to go over your character listing though, so I can work out who is who:)

Looking forward to more:D

I do like Vicky's nervousness in this. Dom insecurities are a thing that's under-explored in fic and sometimes it's easy to forget they're people too (maybe because a lot of fic is written from a sub point of view?). Good stuff, hon :)

There hasn't actually been any Vicky/Nate interaction yet has there? Are you planning on any or keeping them as a background pairing, because I have to admit to being intrigued by them.

Oh, why does this verse devour my brain?

I dare you to do the t-shirt. And I expect photographic evidence :D

Ooooh, rec me. Consider this a reminder.

Excellent stuff, that sounds good to me!

Hmmm, I agree with point one. I am dubious about the validity of point two, but I'm willing to roll with it :D
