Two Hotel Rooms and a Cab (TMP [Powerball AU]: Danny/Mindy, R)

Hi, everybody!

So even though I first imagined my Mindy Project Powerball AU as a dirty, hatesexy story, I had a hard time writing it, and ended up writing a much more lushly romantic version first. I did manage to write the dirty version, but it still falls short of my first imaginings. Oh well. I owe blithers once again for the smart and sharp beta. Like the other Powerball AU story, it's Danny/Mindy, rated R.

[There are a few allusions to other works scattered throughout this story that aren't explained within the text.
- Mindy's "Alaia" is a nod to Clueless
- the real and spectacular line is from Seinfeld
- the Bond villain line is something Schmidt said on New Girl
- the "day ending in Y" joke is from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Also, Go Fug Yourself is real and hilarious and I have absolutely no rights to it. (Also: let's pretend that this is exactly how cabs in Manhattan work. Incidentally, cab call-signs in Manhattan have a numeral-letter-numeral-numeral format, but I changed it so I wouldn't be citing a real call-sign in this story.)]

As always, I'd love to hear what you think.
