Title: The Erect Wizards
Prompt: Shades of grey
Words: 100
Points: The Watch

Archchancellor Ridcully calmly inspected the erect statues in the big hall. Half of his senior staff had been turned to stone of varying shades of grey.

To his left, Dr. Hix uncomfortably shifted from foot to foot. The calmness Ridcully showed was more unnerving than an outbreak of anger would have been.

"Why?“ Ridcully asked, not taking his gaze off the statue that had once been the Lecturer in Recent Runes.

"The skull ring, remember? University statute?“ Hix tried feebly, his voice pitched high by nervousness. Somehow he just knew those words wouldn’t be able to save him this time.

Ahahahaha, this does make me very happy! Dr Hix's obligation to be evil by statute made me laugh a great deal when UA came out and I love this drabble! You've used him and Ridcully immensely well. Thank you!

Yeah, it made me laugh, too. That's why I had to finally write him. ^_^ Glad you liked it!

Statute or not, this smells to me like it was an accident. Damn funny. XD

Wonderful piece. I do like Prof. Hix.
