Prompt #184

If you wish to do this as a spontaneous exercise, don't look at the word until you're ready to write (I recommend having Write or Die open in another tab). If you're going to mull over the word and write later, peek away.

Once you've completed your ficlet, please either comment here, or post a link to it, if you're posting on your own journal. Feel free to reference the community or number of the prompt in your outside posts, but if you use the actual word, please put it under a cut to avoid spoiling others, should they want to write spontaneously.

Today's word is: dawdle

daw·dle [dawd-l]

verb (used without object)
1. to waste time; idle; trifle; loiter: Stop dawdling and help me with these packages!
2. to move slowly, languidly, or dilatorily; saunter.

verb (used with object)
3. to waste (time) by or as if by trifling (usually followed by away): He dawdled away the whole morning.

If you've missed a word or twelve and would like to catch up, please see the Master List.

Title: Some Company Would Be Nice
Fandom: Homestuck
Word Count: 1,300
Summary: Rose Lalonde meets Dave Strider for the first time on a college tour. They're not emotionally well equipped to have a touching, heartfelt reunion, but that's okay. They wouldn't be comfortable with that kind of thing anyway.
