Notes: Yet more baby!vamp!Xander. :D


Angel

Xander Harris, vampire. Xander Harris, only childe of William the Bloody. Xander Harris, latest addition to the clan Aurelius. No matter how he tried to get his head around the fact, Angel couldn't quite seem to take it in.

The bane of his existence, William - Spike - had got the chip removed and hurried home to turn the boy who'd sent him off to hell. Obviously the PTB had decided he hasn't suffering enough and had picked the most effective way to remedy that.

Once the idea was in his head, it was impossible to ignore the erotic images it provoked.




Willow

She'd never forget that she'd thought it was sweet, Xander finally falling for someone who had obviously fallen just as hard for him. And despite the fact that 'someone' was a mass-murdering male vampire, she'd been supporto gal and stood up for them against Buffy and even Giles' pleas for sanity.

She'd watched Xander blossom under Spike's intense, obsessive brand of love, and she'd been happy for him, happy for them both.

Now every time she closes her eyes she sees Spike holding Xander like he'll never let him go, and she wonders how she could have been so blind.




Drusilla

She woke, purring happily, from dreams of twisted silicon and chocolate coloured, misbehaving kittens. Pulling on a robe she ran outside to share the news with her closest friends, the brightly winking stars.

"My darkling prince has made his match so now we can go forward. Pretty soon now I'll have Daddy right where he belongs."

She spun and whirled, a velvet-lace tornado in the pearly moonlight, offering up her visions of pretty boys all drenched in blood. She could see them, hear them, smell them, almost taste them on her tongue and knew they'd help her Daddy be again.




Angelus

Watching, he could see that William - Spike - had changed beyond his every expectation. He was stronger now than Angelus himself had been at that age, more confident, more ready to defy his Master's voice. A Master in his own right and a Sire now to boot, he radiated power from every pore. It made him proud.

They fitted together beautifully as he'd always known they would: physically opposite, emotionally too similar to call. He watched them loving, sharing, caring, touching and he wondered, as the newly re-empowered head of the Aurelius Clan, could he get an invite to their bed?

Gorgeous set, babe!

Dru is such a nutbar ;) ::loves her::

Now every time she closes her eyes she sees Spike holding Xander like he'll never let him go, and she wonders how she could have been so blind.

Hindsight is such a bitch...

Thankee! Dru is a wonderful character. And I really do enjoy making Willow suffer in this series, don't I? *g*

These are wonderful, DH. Not sure what the challenge was, but I liked the idea of all these perspectives...some which were a bit hair-raising. ;)
darkhavensdarkhavens on May 11th, 2005 03:07 am (UTC)
Thank you. The challenge was 'Outside In' - looking at the slashy couple in question through the eyes of a third character - their thoughts, opinions, etc.

And Xander is a baby vamp now, so hair-raising is par for the course. ;)

I love seeing these from other perspectives. I think the two that moved me the most are Willow's and Angelus'. Willow with her naive views. It was bittersweet. Angelus with his pride in Spike. Was good to see.
darkhavensdarkhavens on May 11th, 2005 03:09 am (UTC)
Willow is a silly girl who thinks she knows best. And Angelus should have pride in Spike. He kept Dru alive and happy for over a century and helped get rid of the cursed soul. Thanks! :D

Oh, please, yes!

Angelus/Spike/baby!vamp!Xander? Bring it on!
darkhavensdarkhavens on May 11th, 2005 03:12 am (UTC)
Hee! So that's one vote for a vampy threesome then. I'll see what I can do. ;)

Ooh! This series just gets better and better. Damn that was good.
darkhavensdarkhavens on May 11th, 2005 03:13 am (UTC)
Thanks, sweetie. :D

"Once the idea was in his head, it was impossible to ignore the erotic images it provoked."

After all these years you would think Angel would know that the flip side of denial is obssession.

Heheheheheh.
darkhavensdarkhavens on May 11th, 2005 03:14 am (UTC)
Ah, but he's had over a hundred years to work on that denial thing... *g*

Thanks! :D

Heeeeeeee.
And Yay!
And yes, and all that.
*bounce*
Fun fun!
darkhavensdarkhavens on May 11th, 2005 03:14 am (UTC)
Thankee! :D
Dani: Slasher *squee!*umbralillium on May 8th, 2005 12:09 am (UTC)
Hee! I second Entrenous! I would dearly love to see some Angelus/Spike/Vamp!Xander lovin'. I'm gettin' some really nice mental movies just from the thought of those three being together.
darkhavensdarkhavens on May 11th, 2005 03:15 am (UTC)
LOL! I'll have to practice my Angelus, and my threesome interaction. *g*

Thanks! :D
Genghis Katkat8cha on May 8th, 2005 12:29 am (UTC)
Oh, *ouch*! Poor Willow! Still, no, *NO*, sympathy for the naughty thoughts in Angel's head. And Dru's drabbie was GREAT! I enjoyed it! And the last one was fun!
darkhavensdarkhavens on May 11th, 2005 03:18 am (UTC)
Thank you! I love writing Dru - it's like pretending to be stoned. And Willow - well, she's always smart after the fact, yeah? :P
kaydee23kaydee23 on May 8th, 2005 12:52 am (UTC)
I like seeing how the others perceive their relationship. Of course Angel/Angelus would want in on that. Except, I don' think Angelus would wait for an invitation. I think he'd just come on over and try to help himself. Hee. Lovely.

Except, I don' think Angelus would wait for an invitation. I think he'd just come on over and try to help himself.

He probably would have pre-soul, and most definitely during his 'crazed and trying to destroy the world because he can't stand anyone knowing he screwed the slayer' period. But this latest spell has got rid of (most of) the soul, for good this time, and he has a grudging respect for what Spike has managed to accomplish against all odds. He wants them to want him to join in. ;)

Thanks! :D

Loved this, this series is so good! Thank you!
darkhavensdarkhavens on May 11th, 2005 03:23 am (UTC)
Thank you too, sweetie. :D

Oh, I love these, especially the Angel(us) ones. The only thing better than Spander is a Spander sandwich with Angel filling. Heee....

Love love love all four of them, but the Angel one made me laugh. ^_^ The Powers do love to torment him, don't they?

He's such an egotistical sod, believing TPTB did that just to wind him up. *g*

Thankee! :D

Guh. I love the Willow one. And the Drusilla one.
And all four of 'em, really.

her visions of pretty boys all drenched in blood
Mmm... pretty boys. Lovely.

darkhavensdarkhavens on May 11th, 2005 03:31 am (UTC)
Thanks. :D

Dru has such wonderful visions. ;)

Gorgeous drabbles! I especially liked the Willow one.
Now every time she closes her eyes she sees Spike holding Xander like he'll never let him go, and she wonders how she could have been so blind.
And I love the similarities between Angel and Angelus' thoughts! *g*
darkhavensdarkhavens on May 11th, 2005 03:35 am (UTC)
I seem to enjoy making Willow suffer in this 'verse. Hee! And Angel and Angelus are the same creature under the skin. The soul just makes Angel feel guilt for what he's done, and also for what he wants to do.

Thanks!
