Daily Drabble #2 - Game For Anything, PG-13, Buffy - Spike/Xander
First commenter on the day's drabble(ish) gets to provide pairing and prompt for the next one. You can choose from Spike/Xander, John/Rodney and Sam/Dean or choose one of them as a solo character. Give me a word, or mood, or something to think on and I'll see what I can do. I may expand the possible selection if this works and I actually get my mojo firing on all cylinders. (Nobody gets two drabbles in a row. If you get one today, you don't get to have one tomorrow, even if your comment is up first.)

Summary: Spike gets tired of waiting for Xander
Notes: Written off bethlehem2's prompt of: 'Xander/Spike please and the prompt word is Quest.'


The laptop's screen went blank as the hard drive wheezed to an unexpected halt.

Xander stared blankly at the now black LCD, his fingers still splayed out on the keyboard in optimum gaming formation.

It took him a moment to shift his consciousness from Norrath to Sunnydale, to his apartment, to his kitchen, to the vampire draped naked across the other end of his kitchen table, idly twirling a power lead in one black-nailed hand.

"Spi-ike!"

Spike tossed the cable to one side and leaned in closer, subtle hints of demon rippling rapidly across his pale features.

"Xan-der!"

"Dammit, what did you do that for? We've just bought a team of horses and we were gonna take the…"

The final words of Xander's sentence were muffled by Spike's hand clamping tight across his mouth.

"I've been waiting here, naked and horny, for over an hour, Xander, and every time I've asked if you're coming to bed you've said you'll just be a few more minutes, just have to check your email once more, just need to do one last thing before you log off. Well, consider yourself logged off, love, at least until you can convince me why I should let you log-" Spike paused, and blinked. "A team of horses?"

~~~~~~~

Spike had never played anything like Everquest before and the concept of Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games took some explaining, but he was a fast learner and soon had a good portion of the resident gamers quaking at the sight of his feline-featured exuberantly evil avatar.

Xander resigned himself to buying a second home PC, and to scheduling regular sex breaks into their gaming time.

OMG! Spike and Everquest! *dies*
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 19th, 2007 12:29 am (UTC)
:D

I saw the challenge was 'Quest' and EQ sprang immediately to mind. It gives Spike an outlet for his need for wholesale slaughter.

Thankee!

Thank you!

The mental image of Spike as a rabid gamer gives me glee. :D

LOL. Thank you so much for posting this! I laughed so hard at the image of Spike playing EQ! I loved the second to last line, especially the:

Well done! I'm going to be giggling about this one for a while yet. :)

Thank you! I actually spent a couple of hours just researching EQ. I've never played, but I loved the idea of gamer!Spike and an online world seemed more suited to his destructive habits. *g*

hee! very cute.

If they had two PCs they could put them in separate rooms and IM each other. And you would write it. ;)

darkhavens: harry family [literati]darkhavens on May 4th, 2007 01:03 am (UTC)
LOL! :P
I bet they'd IM each other from opposite ends of the dining table once they got so involved in the game the real world didn't exist. *g*

Thankee!

Great piece, and sadly oh so true!! ~Bee
darkhavens: s grr? [literati]darkhavens on May 4th, 2007 01:05 am (UTC)
Thank you! I love the idea of Spike committing wholesale slaughter in the online universe now he can't do it in real life. he'd be so gleeful. *g*
and then we lit it on fire: spike onlineelectricalgwen on April 19th, 2007 06:34 am (UTC)
HAHAHAHA, awesome.
So, Spike's plans work out better in the virtual than the real world? ;)
Huh, mind you, the unplug-the-computer plan probably worked pretty well. I love "feline-featured exuberantly evil avatar."

So, Spike's plans work out better in the virtual than the real world? ;)

LOL! I think it would be less 'plan' more 'get armed to the teeth and then kill as many as possible'. *g*

I love "feline-featured exuberantly evil avatar."

Thank you! I spent an absurd amount of time researching this, studying the list of roles and races to figure out what Spike and Xander would choose to play. How could Spike be anything but a feline humanoid? *g*

Dies laughing That's too funny...and REALLY easy to visualize, too. Indulging his need for blood'n'torture in an MMORPG has to be cathartic...Thank you, you made my morning!

Hee! Thank you! Spike is always ready for mayhem. :D

The first part if my home life. *g*

Brilliant, hon!
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on May 4th, 2007 01:12 am (UTC)
LOL! Thankee!

If I ever end up with another significant other, they'l have to come with their own computer, cos I could never share mine. *g*
Ditto: AWMPstretfordditto on April 20th, 2007 10:33 pm (UTC)

Lmao! It was his own fault...excellent drabble.
darkhavens: x blue [literati]darkhavens on May 4th, 2007 01:13 am (UTC)
Thank you!

I'm sure Xander will be kicking himself when he's the one naked and horny and left waiting while Spike slaughters just one more group of idiot adventurers. *g*
