A/N: Ok, any of you who have read my stuff for a while know I love writing humor. It really is the default genre of my brain. So when I tried to write all of the drama and angst that became "A Complicated Truth", my brain rebelled somewhere around chapter 3 and threw this at me. And as a further act of defiance, it refused to think about anything else until I wrote this down. So, here it is- a short, triple drabble. Think of it as one of the silly scenes you sometimes see after the movie credits. (and no, this is not intended to be taken seriously!)
As a basic set-up, you all know that while Steve was gone, Danny was in charge. And naturally, he changed a few things. This is one of them and he's showing it to Steve for the first time.
I hope you enjoy. :)
"Don't you think it's a bit…" Steve paused as he struggled to find the right word, eventually settling on, "…flashy?"
Danny shrugged. "That's kind of the idea, right?" he replied as he looked at the silver-white lights swirling and flashing against blue. "I mean, you want it to draw people's attention."
"I guess…" Steve's voice trailed off.
"I sense a 'but' in there," Danny pried.
Steve shrugged. "But, I kind of liked it the way it was. Standard, no fuss."
"But this is an upgrade," Danny replied, waving his hand airily around to encompass the dancing light.
Steve didn't look convinced.
"If it makes you feel any better, HPD loves it," Danny said. "They borrowed it and it was so popular, they're considering getting one of their own."
"Really?" Steve asked, surprise evident on his face.
Danny nodded. "Really. Look, you're just not seeing it from the right perspective." He pulled his phone out of his pocket, found the right app, and a few keystrokes later, music began.
It took Steve a few notes to recognize the song. He looked over at Danny with a classic aneurysm face. "Disco Inferno?"
Danny smiled broadly. "It's really effective, isn't it?"
Steve cocked his head and looked at the large orb spinning in the air, throwing silver dots all over the blue interrogation room. He hated to admit it, but the music did add something to the whole thing…
"I guess it might throw the perps off their game," Steve finally said with a shrug. "I mean, they know we're crazy, but they don't know we're this crazy."
A slow smile spread over Danny's face. "So, we can keep it?"
Steve watched the disco ball spin for a few moments more, then looked at Danny and smiled.
"Yeah, Danny. We can keep it."
