The Duchess Re-Approves

Work Text:

Young Stanley Pines was loitering outside the library. “Sixer, I’m boooored!”

“Then go inside and read some books,” said Ford.

“Aw, they’re prob’ly all boring!”

“They’re not all boring,” said Ford. “Ask a librarian to pick one.”

“Alright, I’ll try it!” Stan went in. A short while later, he stomped back out. “She gave me The Duchess Approves, Sixer! I’m never reading a girly nerd book like that! Stupid library!”

FIFTY-SOMETHING YEARS LATER…

“I thought you said you’d never read that book, Stanley.”

“Yeah, well, never would’ve thought I’d save the world from an evil triangle, either, so screw you.”
