Internship at Wolfram & Hart

One photo + one hundred words = one story for Friday Fictioneers.

If you’re unfamiliar with Wolfram & Hart (or the TV show Angel)…shame on you. For the sake of the story, imagine a law firm that serves the needs of all the creatures that hide in dark corners and under beds and in stories told around campfires and you’re there.

         Finn jumped back with a yell, upsetting the box of invoices from 2007.
         “What is it?!” Sara, the other intern, clutched his arm.
         “It’s a ram’s head.” Finn began to breathe normally again.
         “I thought sacrifices were done on level 5?” Sara peered around him.
         “They wouldn’t preserve the head if it was a sacrifice,” Finn said, setting the overturned box upright.
         “Let’s find the box and get out of here,” Sara said.
         Finn quickly agreed–he felt like the severed head was watching–they’d be envying the beast if they didn’t get the box of depositions to the Partners before lunch.

    • Doug,

      Some might say they all work for devil—but don’t tell my Father that!

      Glad you enjoyed it–I was hoping the little prelude would give enough explanation for those who aren’t familiar with it.

      Thanks for reading!

  1. Dear Hannah,

    Angel rings a bell but I’m not really familiar with the shows. Guess you could say these are two lawyers who really know how to get ahead. Nice one.



    • As long as the story made sense, familiarity isn’t a requirement! The law profession IS pretty cuthroat, from what I’ve heard.
      Thanks for reading!

    • Don’t feel guilty! I haven’t watched the whole thing. But it’s a fun show–especially seeing the show’s special effects compared to all the developments that have been made. Thanks for reading.

  2. Have you no shame? Plugging your other stories! Why, that’s almost like spam. And I don’t like SPAM… so I’ll just have the SPAM, eggs, sausage and SPAM, that’s not got much SPAM in it.
    I may have seen this ANGEL show you speak of. Isn’t it written by that Weaton fellow who played Wesley Crusher on Star Trek?
    (Oh, I’m goan get killed, aren’t I?)

  3. Having seen Angel from start to finish maybe 5 times (I tend to watch all the Buffy’s, then all the Angels, short break then repeat!) I can confidently report that you captured the atmosphere at Wolfram and Hart perfectly. Nice 🙂

  4. Loved this! Perfect fit for Wolfram and Heart. I’ve watched to the end and there are some surprises in store for you when you finally get there!

    • I’ve seen the final season–so I know what happens in the end, but I haven’t watched the whole series from beginning to end in order. I think I made it through season 2 or 3 on Netflix before I got distracted!

  5. Hannah, I haven’t seen the shows you mentioned, but this story was well written and I intend to read the stories you mentioned. Well done. That show sounds like something I’d enjoy. 🙂 —Susan

    • It’s a fun show, part of the universe of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”–but it’s not necessary to watch Buffy before. Glad you enjoyed the story–hope you like the longer stories as well! Thanks for reading.

  6. Dear Hannah, My daughter-in-law keeps me up on “Angel” so I know it’s about the darker side of the law.. Very enjoyable – I have relatives that are lawyers – they are great and then there are the “snake-in-the-grass lawyers that will do anything for a buck. Good story! Nan 🙂
