Why This Must Be Read: Now, okay, some of you may be saying hang on, hang on, this isn't really anthropomorfic. Because usually that's two non-human things in a specific category. So far we've had two ipods and two cookies. In these two stories, Rodney's a unicorn and John's a rainbow. So where's the category? Well, I reckon the category being anthropomorphized here is symbols of fluffy sparkliness - with the rainbow tilting it a bit toward symbols of fluffy sparkly gayness. I can't do much better than the author's own summary for the first story: "John is a rainbow, Rodney is a unicorn, and the Humans are attacking. Will they work together to save the Magical Forest (Answer: yes.)" So this is crack and fluff, and the second story's curtainfic as well, and the great thing is that thingswithwings manages to keep Rodney and John entirely in character, with plenty of snark and humor - it's a whole lot of fun.

"Hey," Rodney asks, "are you the same rainbow from yesterday?"

"Yup. This is my turf."

"Really? But there's nobody around. There aren't even very many fat bunnies, and I'm the only unicorn in the area."

"Yeah," the rainbow sounds hesitant, and some of its brightness fades. "I'm not very high up in the ranks. The other rainbows get the good spots."

Rodney whinnies; he knows how that is. "I know how that is," he says. "The other unicorns say that it's easier for them to be majestic and gleaming without me around."

The rainbow brightens again. He really is beautiful; strange that he doesn't have a higher rank.

"Hey," Rodney asks, "what's your name?"


"Really? You're a rainbow named John?"

The rainbow is silent.

"Um, I'm Rodney," Rodney says.

"Oh, and that's such a unicorny name," John-the-rainbow pronounces, rolling a wisp of his red sarcastically.

"Excuse me, unicorny?"

"Yes," John says, clearly being an asshole now, "that's the word I was looking for."


I love whimsical tales like this ... so thanks for sharing :)
I've missed how cracky this fandom is :D Just reading the snippet has made me want to reread this. Thank you for the rec :)
