Word count: 250
Summary: Avon and Blake find yet another topic to argue about.
Notes: Written for [ profile] entropy_house, who asked for Avon and Blake arguing over something unimportant. This is rather silly, all dialogue, and includes an execrable pun in the title.

"It's the same thing, Blake. A chemical analysis would -"

"It doesn't taste the same!"

"How would you know?"

"I had real tea once. At the reception for the Aquitar Project launch."

"Nonsense. That was section heads only. Even I wasn't invited."

"Everyone more senior in my group had the flu. Anyway, that's not the point, Avon. The point is -"

"The point is that you want to visit a planet that, while technically neutral, has a notoriously cooperative relationship with the Federation, in order to buy overpriced leaves to steep in water. When you could press a button on the food dispenser and produce the exact -"

"Not exact."

"- same drink."

"It may seem -"

"It seems like something Vila would do in quest of adrenaline and soma. You've managed to surprise me, Blake. I've come to expect your insane revolutionary fervour, but not self-indulgence."

"You'd sing a different tune if it was something you wanted."

"There's nothing I want more than my safety."

"And a few million credits, so don't be smug. I don't ask for much -"

"You ask for everything! Unrelentingly! And this time I'm saying no."

"You never say anything else."

"Try asking for something reasonable."

"What would you consider reasonable?"

"Very little that's ever likely to come out of your mouth. You produce absurdities with the same depressing inevitability that -"

"A food dispenser synthesizes undrinkable tea?"

"And your jokes aren't funny."

"In a bad mood, Avon? A nice cup of tea would make you feel better."

"Shut up, Blake."

I'm now taking a new request. First commenter on DW or LJ can name a fandom (see here on DW or here on LJ for a list of fandoms I can write), a character or pairing, and a brief prompt.
