Notes: Notes: The continuing past and future adventures of baby!vamp!Xander.


Pale Reflections

Demons don't feel things. Demons don't care. Demons don't experience things like love.

Had he really believed all that crap? Xander shook his head in disbelief.

If anything, since the recent acquisition of his demon, his feelings had become so much more powerful and rich. His love for Spike had no buts or boundaries, defining edges, anything he had to do to keep his Sire safe he'd do. And in return he knew that Spike would love him till the end of time - as Childe, as mate, as brother, friend and lover.

Human emotion - pale reflections of the demon kind.



Snuffing Out the Flame

"I see it, little witch, flickering inside your belly. A bile green flame of envy tinged with rotten orange vengeance. Even now - even as you promise to be good - it burns and dances, hungers to be fed, for shame, for true."

Dru dragged a pointed crimson nail across Willow's naked skin, marking the flame's location with an X of reddened welts. Willow whimpered and was still.

"You're full to overflowing with false piety and bitterness. Feelings roiling deep inside, like eels in the mud. Not to worry, I can make them stop."

Dru's fingers burrowed eagerly though pale white flesh…

GUH!

lovelovelove Dru.

I shall expect a Dru drabble every week now.

:D

Hee! You already got one! And a gory one it was too. :D

Thanks, sweetie!

Wheeee!
*ahem*

Yes yes.
And i think, to the first one? Very yes. They did ALL seem so intense and passionate. Very cool.

Thanks! Vampires? Unfeeling? Poppycock! *g*

I believe literati raises a valid point. A Dru drabble a week is as fun to read as it is to say :-) Also, the first drabble? Brilliant!
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on September 11th, 2005 01:51 am (UTC)
Thanks! There's already another Dru drabble out and about. She got gory. *g*

I loved the Dru/WIllow one.
darkhavens: dru [literati]darkhavens on September 11th, 2005 01:52 am (UTC)
Thanks! Dru does like playing with her new doll, but she is rather hard on her toys. ;)

::evil, evil grin::

Your Dru is so perfect. I *love* how she is dealing with Willow.

And the first one, Xander's "enlightenment".

That's just sweet!
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on September 11th, 2005 01:53 am (UTC)
Thanks!

Xander is a smart baby!vamp. He knows he was fed a lot of BS as a Scoobie. ;)

His love for Spike had no buts or boundaries very nice

And a gorgeous description of Willow by Dru. Especially liked A bile green flame of envy tinged with rotten orange vengeance
darkhavens: dru [literati]darkhavens on September 11th, 2005 01:58 am (UTC)
Thanks!

Dru is wonderful to write. You can do so much with the imagery and word choices, even sentence structure. She's fun!
Kristintxrabbit on September 7th, 2005 11:12 am (UTC)
Gorgeous, love!

*smootch*
darkhavens: dru [literati]darkhavens on September 11th, 2005 02:02 am (UTC)
Thanks, darlin'! *smooch*

darkhavens: dru [literati]darkhavens on September 11th, 2005 02:03 am (UTC)
Thanks! Seh's so much fun to write. I can be as gory as I want to be and filter it all through Dru's craziness. *g*

Hee-hee! I like a good excuse too - I just filter it through MY craziness, though... Ahhh...angst horror gore torture - an nice thing to share amongst friends... Hee!

Oh these are both just so good, but I really love that first one. That makes so much more sense than saying vamps are evil and don't feel anything! Great job!
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on September 11th, 2005 02:04 am (UTC)
Thanks! The only unfeeling vamps we saw on the show were the fledges that were dusted as soon as they rose. they just never had a chance. All of the others seemed to have lots of feelings!

It has taken me a while to respond to this. I had to get over the shudders from the Dru/Willow drabble! Great pair.
darkhavens: dru [literati]darkhavens on September 11th, 2005 02:05 am (UTC)
Shudders, eh? Wow! Thanks! :D
samsara_svsamsara_sv on September 11th, 2005 03:41 pm (UTC)
y'know I'm almost ashamed to admit it but work and house-hunting have left very little time for lj this last weeks so I've been skipping things I'd normally read to catch up.... sooooooo glad I didn't miss B!V!X though *snuggles the homicidal obsessive 'family'*
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on September 19th, 2005 01:32 am (UTC)
Giood luck with the house-hunting, and thank you! I'm glad my psychotic little vamp family can brighten up your day every so often. :D
