Rating: R (mostly for language, though)
Warnings/spoilers: Includes some explicit spoilers for season two up to Grace under Pressure.
Prompt: I chose "Around the World in Eighty Days", although I'll shamefully admit that I kind of did the book, not the movie (there are some excerpts from the Penguin Popular Classics edition in here). Bad, bad me.
So: When Phileas Fogg is challenged to prove his contention that a man can go around the world in 80 days, he bets his entire fortune and leaves with a new butler on a world tour. This Victorian adventure has a kicker: the bank of England has been robbed. Is this Fogg's way of avoiding arrest? The detective following him believes so, and his butler is becoming unsure.
Notes: This is one of two stories I ever talked about with somebody before actually writing them. If I hadn't, this would have gone very, very differently. So, Denis? Thank you! And it would also have gone very, very differently if my sister wasn't used to me writing in a certain way – broet_chan? Thanks!
