Another Crossover Drabble

Title: Preservation
Fandom: Remember WENN, surprise!
Genre Crossover, Drabble
Characters Betty, ???
Word Count 209
Summary A technician arrives to help preserve all of the station's programs
Author's NoteAnother from the WENNlist crossover drabble challenge. Again, like my other, the second show is not revealed until the end. I've edited it to include some things I had to delete to make it a true drabble to fit the challenge.



He made his way to the given address and was greeted by an older woman. "Mr. Dolby? I
appreciate your arriving so quickly." She walked down the hallway. "I believe you'll find all
you need right here. The man we hired to do the restorations had to pull out."

"I'm sure I'll be able to find my way around, Mrs.--"

"Roberts."

Dolby looked at her. "Betty Roberts?"

"I kept my maiden name when I married. I don't know if it was out of independence or the
fact that I had become known by that name in the radio community." She ran her hands along
the dusty boxes on the shelves. "It might sound strange, but everything here holds a special
memory for me."

"It's no wonder you want them cleaned and preserved. You want to have something physical
and concrete to mark what you did with your life."

She smiled and the years fell from her. "Somehow I knew you would understand and not
dismiss it as an old woman's fancy."

"I'll try to do them justice, Mrs. Roberts," he said reverently opening a box labeled Hands of Time.

"Since you'll be here a few days, call me Betty."

"Jarod." He smiled and turned to begin his work.

Thanks! As I've just come to this comm, I'm linking to my earlier fics. I have two more complete and one that kinda faded so I might try to start that up again. And feel free to read any of my others!

I liked this the first time, but it's much better this way.

I don't think many got it the first time around either. He's Jarod from "The Pretender". A man with the ability to become anything he wants to be. In the course of the series he was a doctor, lawyer, FBI agent, US Marshal, and even a hit man.
