Summary: "For a proper duel, it ought to be pistols at dawn," Darren said. 

written for the "did what where" challenge at [community profile] fan_flashworks - forgot to crosspost this here last month.

"For a proper duel, it ought to be pistols at dawn," Darren said.  

"You're only saying that because of Barry Lyndon," Geoffrey pointed out, accurately.  There's being a Kubrick fan and then there's being an idiot.  

Neither of them had a pistol anyway, or wanted to get up at dawn.

Rapiers in the quadrangle at midnight had a certain romantic appropriateness. Rapiers at Ellen’s drinks party… seemed like a good idea at the time. Less so the morning after, with Geoffrey in prison and minus his belt and shoelaces, being lectured on Freudian symbolism by the ghost of Oliver Welles.
