I've been doing Man from UNCLE responses to a Doctor Who drabble challenge series... it's complicated. Anyway. dw100 challenge #1: Accident.


" This is all your fault, you know, Napoleon."

"My fault? You're the one who fell down and got us captured."

"But I tripped over your spare trousers' cuffs. They are too long."

No, your legs are too short, Napoleon did not say aloud. "Well, I'm not the one who lost his pants escaping the first time."

"Trousers."

"What?"

"They are trousers. Pants are worn underneath."

"Oh right, Briticisms. Sorry. Okay, I didn't lose my trousers escaping."

"True. But in future, perhaps it would be prudent to have them hemmed slightly shorter."

A/N: And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why Napoleon's trouser legs are always two inches too short!
