"Mr. Postman" Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog drabble Rating-G

Title: Mr. Postman
Fandom: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog
Character: Billy (Dr. Horrible)
Rating: G
Wordcount: 100
Notes: Written for Day 9 of Drabble-a-Day 2011 Request from lilithisbitter. Prompt: rejection letter.
Awesome Inst-a-beta by hllangel.
Summary: The first application.


It’s not like Billy can’t handle rejection.

After all he’s had plenty of experience, going back to the first choosing up of kick-ball teams in the third grade.

OK, maybe he doesn’t take it especially well. There’s usually cursing, throwing things, frothing at the mouth, followed by a nice long brood. Yeah, rejection sucks, but he takes it like a super-villain and ends up laughing maniacally.

Except for that first response from Bad Horse, when he stayed in his cellar for two weeks, not even coming out to do laundry.

Rejection was bad enough, but a form letter really hurt.
