Grungefic part 3 and SBS update
I've posted chapter 13 of my Spander WiP 'Step by Step' at my website. Giles has some questions for the boys...

And, as an added treat, here is the third part of Grungefic. it's short, but the next part is already in the works. Previous parts can be found here.



He’s pushed back on the bed and nudged and turned and just allows the vampire, Spike, to rearrange him as he wants before the blue-eyed blond slides in between the covers, right up next to him, and wraps his arms and legs around him tight.

“I could get used to cuddling up to you at night like this, so warm and cosy. You won’t try and leave us while I sleep, now will you, pretty? Won’t try to sneak out in the sunlight when you know that we can’t follow? You’d best not try it, pretty, cos I’d hate to have to hurt you but I would. You’re mine now, mine to keep and care for, hurt or harm. And you know it, deep inside you, where the pain is sharp as knives. So sleep now, and I’ll chase away the nightmares that won’t leave while you’re awake.”

And Xander sleeps, entangled in the limbs of something he’d been told to hate. And he sleeps well.


+++++

But waking’s not so simple and he fights to stay asleep with every ounce of strength he has, which isn’t much. Then hands are on his shoulders and a weight is on his stomach and a voice is pulling him back to the world outside.

“Come on, pretty. All the way out now. Don’t be hiding yourself in dreams when reality can be so much more fun.” And Xander cracks his eyelids open and discovers that the weight upon his chest is a grinning Spike. The evening’s strange events come flooding back and Xander waits a moment, braced for the shock and fear and waves of panic. Nothing comes, except a deep and gnawing hunger. For the first time in an age he wants to eat.

“What’ll it be, Pet, eat, shag or talk first? I’m not bothered.”

Xander’s stomach makes it’s choice heard quite emphatically, while Xander tries not to wonder just what shag might mean, and Spike rolls off to stand beside the bed, entirely nude and unashamed of it. His cock is standing proud and Xander stares at it, suddenly as curious as a cat. He’s only ever seen one other cock before, besides his own, and both of those were neatly trimmed before they ever knew what they were missing. This alien piece of skin is fascinating, though a small part of him knows he’s just avoiding facing up to what he’s done and where he is and who he’s with and maybe why.

A hand drifts down into his line of vision and gives a casual tug that makes him flinch. He didn’t realise foreskins were so… stretchy. And then he blinks and looks away, and down, and up and gets ensnared by laughing baby blues.

“I’d crawl back into bed, but the way your stomach’s growling I think I’d be more in danger of being bitten right now than you are. So up and at ‘em, Pet. For obvious reasons we don’t tend to keep much food about, so we’ll be going out to find us something nice to eat.”

Spike pulls him up and leads him to a door set in the corner of the room. “Have yourself a shower and do the necessary. Then get dressed but do not leave this room. Don’t want you wandering around and getting nibbled on, the minions are a pretty stupid bunch; bite first, ask questions later.”

He’s ushered through the door, which shuts behind him, and Xander looks around the tiny room. It’s obviously been utilised quite regularly, and he recalls how Jesse used to love a long hot shower when he woke up. He reaches out and turns the taps on, sets the temperature to almost tepid, then wriggles off his shorts and slides his teenage body into that cool torrent.

Barely fifteen minutes later he steps out into the bedroom, a towel around his hips and another round his shoulders like a cloak. His jeans are on the bed, as is his jacket, but the shorts and socks are new, and the silky-looking tee shirt isn’t his. It’s black and smaller than the clothes he’s used to. It looks like it will cling and fit like skin.

He shrugs and puts the outfit on, the tee shirt sticking slightly to the damp skin of his back.

“Need some help?” a whisper by his ear as two cool hands unstick the shirt and smooth it down, real slow. He stands and lets those hands iron out the wrinkles, barely twitching when they tuck the soft material under the waistband of his jeans then pat his ass.

“I’ve had that baggy thing you came in burnt; it wasn’t even fit for rags. We’ll find you something decent later on, but first, let’s eat. I’m sure there’s something nice and juicy out there for us both to sink our teeth into.”

*purring* Oh, I love it... so sexy in a nice, you-know-it's-coming low-key kind of way. Xander's fascination with the foreskin was particularly nice. >:-) Looking forward to your next installment!
darkhavensdarkhavens on July 5th, 2004 10:02 pm (UTC)
I made you purr, yay!

And it's definitely coming... slowly but surely.

I had trouble getting Xander's attention away from that foreskin. I must have rewritten that para four or five times to get it just right. Not too much ogling, and a hint of returning self-awareness that Xander just isn't ready to acknowledge yet.

More soon, pwomise!

DAMN!
Just sent you an email and it BOUNCED. To your bloodclaim hotmail address.
Here's what i wrote:
Hey...i posted a new chapter of 'Hero' and put a notice up at =
Bloodclaim. That was wrong, because i messed up the link to my site. =
So i THOUGHT i edited the entry, but i DIDN'T, i ended up posting twice! =
Please, can you delete the first 'Hero' entry, as the 'Scarecrow =
Horses' link goes to my livejournal instead of my site?=20
Ack!
Sorry.
I guess i have no real idea how to edit/delete a bloodclaim entry!
Thank you thank you!

And... I'll come back and read part three mosh kosh, promise!
*gibber*
:)
darkhavensdarkhavens on July 5th, 2004 10:26 pm (UTC)
Tis gone. :o)

The editing should be just the same as in your journal. Open the post, click on the pencil and you should be able to edit. I've done it in other communities and it seems to work okay. I think...

::kicks hotmail::

I've changed the bloodclaim addy to my darkhavens one now. I don't think hotmail likes the length of 'darkhavensbloodclaim', contrary thing.

My email servers keep bouncing you, I think it must be personal. Even some of the comment notification emails don't come through for your comments.

It's a conspiracy, you do realise that? ;op

I am thoroughly enjoying this little fic. Can't wait to see what's next!
darkhavensdarkhavens on July 5th, 2004 11:38 pm (UTC)
Thank you! It's an odd one, for certain. But now they're going out to eat... it could get messy. ;o)

Your ISD is up on my LJ, so come over and check it out.
kitty_poker1kitty_poker1 on July 6th, 2004 06:44 am (UTC)
*bounce* Two updates! And some drabbles that I don't have time to read before work. :o(

I loved Xander's fascination with Spike's stretchy foreskin. And wondering what a 'shag' is. :o)

I’m sure there’s something nice and juicy out there for us both to sink our teeth into.”

*g* Now, how's a boy supposed to react when an unchipped vampire says that to him? I can hardly wait to find out!
darkhavensdarkhavens on July 6th, 2004 06:48 pm (UTC)
{{hugs}}

The updates will still be there when you finish work. ;o)

Poor sweet, not-entirely-innocent Xander. He's too distanced to really react to what Spike is saying, but what's going to happen when they actually find the food...? :;evil grin::

Glad you're enjoying it!
Nashnashmaveric on July 6th, 2004 05:36 pm (UTC)
::smirk:: Yeah I'm sure there is.

So loving this fic. I like cheerful evil Spike. He's as scary as scowling evil Spike but more fun! ::grin::
darkhavensdarkhavens on July 6th, 2004 06:38 pm (UTC)

Oh, definitely. But I'm sure he'll be snarling at least once before the end. ;o)

Glad you're enjoying it!

Re: Grungefic p.3
Well, you're a bloodclaim watcher and I always announce/post my fic in there so you shouldn't have any trouble finding it.

Thanks for the fb! :o)
Seadreamerseadreamer on July 6th, 2004 06:36 pm (UTC)
*breathes heavily*
Ok, so maybe it wasn't a good idea to read this at work, at lunch. Because as someone mentioned up there (points up at comments) you KNOW what's coming. Oh my. Hope you don't mind if I add you to my friends list so I can watch for updates. YUM. Thank GOODNESS you got pimped on the Excessant ML! Can't wait to see more!
darkhavensdarkhavens on July 6th, 2004 06:44 pm (UTC)
Re: *breathes heavily*
Of course you can add me. I'm always happy to have more fans friends. ;o)

I'm just glad you enjoyed it. There is more to come...

Loving this story...
Hi, just love this story. Have always loved how Xander is Dru's Dark Kitten..that she is more his guardian angel so to speak.. pun intended. Xander paired with Spike is my 3rd fav.. it follows Xander paired with Angel(us) but both Angel(us)/Spike paired with Xander is my favorite above all others. This is a great story, I repeat am LOVING it!!!! will have to figure out how to keep up with it as I have no idea how to use LJ, nor don't want one of my own though may have to just for story-updates??? take care, JC
darkhavensdarkhavens on July 6th, 2004 07:21 pm (UTC)
Re: Loving this story...
Thank for the fb!

I love Dru calling Xander her Dark Kitten. She was a wonderful character.

Spike and Xander is my OTP (one true pairing), the only pairing I write, though I'm not entirely averse to Angel joining them occasionally, as long as he doesn't get ideas that he belongs. ;o)

You can bookmark my journal (this link) if you don't want to get a journal of your own, but they're free, and I know at least two others have got journals just so they could join bloodclaim, my Spander community. Lots of fic gets posted there, all S/X, though there is one future S/A/X story being posted there.

Whatever you decide, I hope you keep reading. :o)

OoooH! so very tasty! For some reason,Spike dressing Xander was very...hot. Does that make me weird?
darkhavensdarkhavens on July 7th, 2004 06:59 pm (UTC)
Thank you. :o)

And no, you're not wierd at all. Spike dresing Xander was... clever. He's getting Xander used to being touched and he's copping a feel at the same time. Hee!
paperk8: goldepaperk8 on July 7th, 2004 06:43 pm (UTC)
I love your bunnies.
Yes, yes, I do.
There is something lurking.
*pokes bunny*
Find the lurk, baby. I think it hurts.
You can make it... better. *evil smirk*

'Death shall befall you with nasty sharp pointy teeth.'
Go bunny go.

Coffee is evil, forgive me.
darkhavensdarkhavens on July 7th, 2004 07:06 pm (UTC)
Evil, you are! Poking the bunny is dangerous to your fingers. And there is more coming, " with nasty sharp pointy teeth."

Hee!

Coffee is tres evil! ::pours you more::

Chapter 3
I am luvin this story so far. I like seeing Master Spike at his best, and he's right, reality can be so much fun. Dru is lovely as ever, and I think she's a kindred spirit and caretaker in Xander. I'm pretty sure Spike will be teaching Xander a lot of things and I am eagerly waiting to be a voyeur to those lessons. Please post more soon;-)

Re: Chapter 3
I'm glad you're enjoying it. The next part is nearly ready for public consumption. :o)

Loving This Fic
Reminds me of Wiseacress' writing and if you knew how much I revere her you'd realise how much of a compliment that is. More please. Dxxoo
darkhavensdarkhavens on July 13th, 2004 08:16 pm (UTC)
Re: Loving This Fic
OMG! Thank you! That's a wonderful compliment. I may not know how much *you* revere her, but I know how much *I* respect her style.

There will be more soon, I just need to get my summer_of_spike day out of the way first. ;o) (That's Thursday, btw.)
