Papaya #10 with Pocky

Author: Regret
Rating: PG
Challenge: Papaya #10 - Why Me?
Extras: Pocky
Word Count: 100
Summary: Everyone deals with hangovers in different ways.
Notes: I had a ridiculous hangover this morning, which is clearly my own fault but I still found myself thinking 'why me?' and... this resulted, after I stopped feeling terrible. Oddly enough, it's quite fun thinking about how the characters deal with it!

Paradigm deals with his by retching his guts out: head in the toilet bowl, gripping the rim, knuckles porcelain white.

Kse pretends hers don't exist, but sits very still nonetheless; when she moves, it's with exaggerated care.

Maxim revels in his. It's a physical consequence, it's real, and he delights in it (but he'll not do it again).

Arkadiy shouldn't get his: everything is supposed to be synthesised into his blood. It doesn't always work, but he'll never admit it. He grins and laughs and ignores the thumping headache.

Vanya doesn't drink and sees straight through Arkadiy's act; she despairs.

There's something strangely comforting in inflicting hangovers on characters. >_> It takes the edge off the suffering. XD

Haha, this is funny. I really like Kse's reaction.

I think Kse's is probably my favourite too - I can just see how she'd move. Maybe it's a little from experience...

I'm glad you like it! XD

Ha! My favorite is Maxim's response, but generally, I think this is an excellent overview of Ways To Deal With Hangovers. And very funny too. Even Vanya's.

I was trying to imagine what it'd be like to have your first hangover and actually enjoy it. ...I still can't quite see it myself. >_>

Poor Vanya, she really doesn't know what to do with Arkadiy sometimes. XD;;;

They're interesting, nice snapshots of these people.

Thank you! :D

Haha, I think Maxim's the best. (10 bucks that he'll do it again, though :P)

I should think Kse got him into that state in the first place (she's worryingly keen on drinking games), so I'm sure she'll manage it again. XD If he has any sense, the next time he makes a body he'll up the alcohol tolerance levels. XD;;
