Title: And This is Why Your Name is Molly
Fandom: The West Wing
Rating: G
Word Count: 547
Notes: “Twenty-Five” was on Bravo this morning and babies came with hats and hfksdlfhslkhdf.



Molly doesn’t know it until she’s much older, but she stays true to the essence of her namesake from day one.

---

“Hucky-Wucky was a bear!”

As soon as the boys around him hear the words, they dart away. They know what’s coming, and Huck doesn’t blame them for not wanting to stick around. He sits among the fresh scattering of footprints in the sandbox and waits.

“Hucky-Wucky had no hair!”

Two sets of sneakered feet appear in the sandbox. The legs are both bandage showcases, displaying the best and the most colorful in Band-Aid technology.

“Hucky-Wucky wasn’t very lucky… wucky?”

Huck sighs. Wasn’t anyone going to teach them that-

“There’s no such word as wucky!”

Smiling, Huck looks up. His sister’s already standing in front of him, facing the bullies with her arms folded and her chin up. Huck still can’t figure out how she gets herself to look so tall when she does this.

“There is too such a word!” Bully #1 retorts.

“There is not!” Molly shoots back. “Look it up in the dictionary! Oh, wait, you can’t, ‘cause it’s not there!

“It is too!” Bully #2 steps forward like a little puppy eager for a fight. Molly growls like a big dog ready to tear some holes.

“My daddy showed us last night! It’s not a word!”

“Your daddy doesn’t know what he’s talking about!”

“Oh yeah?!

“YEAH!” Bully #1 quickly kicks at the sand, sending it flying past Molly’s legs and right into Huck’s eyes. He doubles over backwards, spitting and coughing as he goes.

Luckily, he clears the sand from his eyes just in time to see his sister flying at the bullies with fists bared.

---

They sit on the bench and giggle. Kids don’t usually giggle while on the bench outside the principal’s office, but these two have been here enough to know that it’s not as bad as everyone thinks it is. They sit on the bench and they giggle and pull back their new bandages to taunt each other with the fresh scarlet wounds underneath. But right at the moment that it gets gross, they squeal with laughter and turn away and put the bandages back. It’s impossible to be grossed out by wounds of victory, after all.

“Hey, hey, what have I told you about Band-Aids?”

They try to straighten up and look inconspicuous, but the smiles are still on their faces.

“That they’re there to make the ouchies better,” they say in unison.

“That’s right,” Andy tells them, “So why are you taking them off?”

Their only answer is a fresh crop of giggles.

“All right, come on.” Andy puts her hands out and the kids gleefully take each one. As they walk down the hall, she says, “You know that you’ll have to go to your dad’s house tonight with your new ouchies.”

One would think that a statement like that would be cause for disappointment, but there’s no disappointment in more giggling.

Andy shakes her head and chuckles. No matter how many times she's tried to tell them that there are better ways to solve a conflict, the outcomes never change.

With a name like Huck, the bullies would keep on coming. But with a name like Molly, protection would always be inevitable.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

OH. MY. GOD.

This is SO awesome. I am squeeing the fuck out right now. *G*

Huck sighs. Wasn’t anyone going to teach them that-
“There’s no such word as wucky!”

HAH! Huck sighing just feels so Toby-ish to me, rolling his eyes and everything. *G*

“Your daddy doesn’t know what he’s talking about!”
“Oh yeah?!”

Oh kid, are YOU in for a world of pain. :DDD

“Hey, hey, what have I told you about Band-Aids?”
They try to straighten up and look inconspicuous, but the smiles are still on their faces.
“That they’re there to make the ouchies better,” they say in unison.

BEST. FAMBLY. EVER. *glees* But poor Andy, trying in vain to get the (old Ziegler-style? *g*) conflict resolution methods out. It'll never work, honey. *G*

With a name like Huck, the bullies would keep on coming. But with a name like Molly, protection would always be inevitable.
*happysigh* Just ... YES. So many <333333s

I love this. Going in my fanon, post haste. :)

OH YOU KNOW WHAT? I decided to read this. It didn't seem spoilery, and it wasn't! I'm sure this would mean more to me if I had actually met Huck and Molly, and if I knew who Molly was named after, but I just... adored it anyway. AWWW the Ziegler spawn! It’s impossible to be grossed out by wounds of victory, after all. ♥! I love them. I want them to have a spin-off that you would write. Let's work on this.
sir, echofon is a program, not a device.: [4] :Vgingasaur on January 24th, 2009 09:38 am (UTC)
oh man, please get going because Molly's naming is pretty epic fyi. ♥ the origin forever.

ahaha LET'S! I am all for that. let's go.

(also boy oh boy do I regret not asking you for BL fic at christmastime or what)
cassie: WW baby hatskiss_me_cassie on January 23rd, 2009 11:47 pm (UTC)
awwwwww... that's hilarious and yet so very appropriate. And I really think Andy is not-so-secretly proud of how they got their ouchies. ;)
