'My Head is Spinning', 3 for open_on_sunday #138 Dizzy
Author: darkhavens
Title: My Head is Spinning
Pairing: Spike/Xander, Dru, Connor
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No harm, no foul, no money made.
Notes: More baby!vamp!Xander. :D


Seeing Things

The snatches and flashes of second sight never failed to leave Xander feeling just the slightest bit off-balance, but this was different. This time the room turned itself inside out, folded sideways, took his stomach with it and he dropped.

He wouldn't have been surprised to open his eyes to see a coronet of madly tweeting birds or flashing stars around his head, but all he saw was grubby, giant letters upside down and a sea of flickering lights on the horizon. He blinked.

"Shit! Spike! I know where they are! Dru's got Connor tied up by the Hollywood sign!"



Like A Top

Dru turned faster and faster, arms outstretched, layers of silk and lace belling out around her. A madly spinning top, attention focussed on the moon between the quickly moving, storm-tossed clouds. And then she stopped, staggered, giggled once and dropped like a stone, arms and legs bent at awkward angles. She sighed.

"Daddy's not happy, Spike, he needs his growly puppy. Puppies should be trained before you let them in the house."

Spike glanced at Xander sitting in the car, unconscious Connor draped across his lap.

"Dru, luv, you know Angelus likes his pups warm-blooded. Bastard likes to play first."



Foiled

The incessant throbbing in Connor's head came into focus first. It pulsed behind his eyes like a second, mutant heart. Next came the puzzling realisation that he was naked. The cool night air sent random tiny shivers through his frame.

A voice, too close and cheery, had him struggling to sit up, bewildered by the lack of where or when or who or why.

"Hi, I'm Xander. I think we're kinda family."

And suddenly Connor realised what he meant. This man was cold.

His frantic dive for freedom through the open car door was foiled by a single pale fist.

Also giving love for the last line. Great set as always - I love that, when Xander falls, even his vision goes upside down. It's little stuff like that that makes me grin :-)

Thanks!

Xander sees, but not always in a straight line or the right way up. It's so much more fun that way. *g*

Aw Dru just wants to give her daddy a pressie. ^__^
I'm really enjoying this story thread. More!

Thanks!

Dru wants her daddy to be happy, as always. The growly puppy was a lovely idea, but the execution was off. ;)

There were all sorts of pretty sentences in there but my favourite was a plain old Xander line "Hi, I'm Xander. I think we're kinda family." HEE! So Xander! ::grin::
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on November 24th, 2005 08:11 pm (UTC)
Thanks!

Xander loves the fact that he has such a great family now. He can't help being dorky about it, really. *g*

Thank you, Pookie! I know, you just liked seeing Connor get punched out by Xander. *g*

Conner in a lot of trouble in these three. Don't think Daddy will be happy! Great take on the challenge
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on November 24th, 2005 08:12 pm (UTC)

Connor is in much deep doodoo, methinks. *g*

darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on November 24th, 2005 08:13 pm (UTC)
Thankee!

     Mandya_phoenixdragon on November 24th, 2005 09:38 pm (UTC)
Hell yes! Vamp incest is the best - put your sire to the test! *G*...

Geez, I'm so sick!
noneecanoneeca on November 17th, 2005 03:03 am (UTC)
first off? yee. love of the baby!vamp!Xan. and Connor! awake!
and second? *shuffles feet* um... i was wondering if i could entice you to visit my journal and read the fic that you so kindly helped me post? it would be a huge honour if you would r&r, and would make both myself and the author much less nervous about this whole venture.
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on November 24th, 2005 08:14 pm (UTC)
Thanks!
And yes, Connor! awake! Well, for a few seconds anyway. *g*
