'Hello Little Girl', one for open_on_sunday challenge #118 - The Beatles
Pairing: Dru, Willow, reference to Willow/Tara
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No harm, no foul, no money made.
AN1: Although this is set in the baby!vamp!Xander!verse, all you need to know is that Spike turned Xander, they're happy, Willow wants to resoul Xander, and Dru has tracked her down to... talk her out of it. ;)
AN2: Thanks to reremouse for the petting and pandering to the madperson on YIM. ;)
AN3: All titles taken from Steve's Beatles Page.


Hello Little Girl

"Nobody's child, you cry for a shadow, you're the girl with the devil in her heart. You're fixing a hole for no-one, not a second time...

"Do you want to know a secret? This boy's not in chains. He's free as a bird so let it be, leave my kitten alone...

"I'm looking through you, blackbird, and it's all too much. I've just seen a face, another girl, Lady Madonna. Mean Mr Mustard thinking happiness is a warm gun. I saw her standing there, oh, misery! It won't be long. Ask me why, little child."

"W...why?"

"Because. You'll be mine."

Thank you! It nearly made my head explode, but it was fun to do. :D

And see, I bypassed the 'making sense' part by letting Dru say it all. ;)

Ha! and again Ha! But really, I think you have too much time on your hands.
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on June 28th, 2005 08:38 pm (UTC)
LOL! Thanks... I think. *g*

Dammit. I hate the Beatles. Absolutely hate them. Capital H.

But this was unbelievable. You have an amazing talent there, chicklet.

(Ok, ok, I admit it. There is a Beatles song that I like. Except no one I know has ever heard of it. Which is creepy. It's called "Run for your life.")

I knew Dru could fix the Willow problem. I love Dru. I think I need a Dru icon...hmmmm...
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on June 28th, 2005 09:13 pm (UTC)
LOL! Thanks, darlin'. :D

I just went back to the site and found the lyrics to 'Run For Your Life' - wow! Realy really not your typical happy clappy Beatles track, huh? *g*

outsideth3boxoutsideth3box on June 28th, 2005 09:40 pm (UTC)
Heheh...no, it really isn't the same old same old silly Beatles tune, huh?

I think that's why I like it. It's sort of, The Beatles: The Dark Side. Ya know? Just...more *real* than anything else of theirs. I've liked that song since I was twelve and first discovered it.

That's so cool, you looked it up. ::G::

What a novel concept. Very well done.
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on June 28th, 2005 09:14 pm (UTC)
Thanks. :D

It was one of those wierd ideas that wouldn't go away until I gave in.

what a cool idea and it worked wonderfully. Willow Dru? How unusual.
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on June 29th, 2005 04:37 am (UTC)
Thanks. I blame the electric storm that woke me up. It fried my circuits. *g*

You are so amazingly talented. You made the song titles sound just like Dru!babble.
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on June 29th, 2005 04:39 am (UTC)
Thank you! I was reading the list on Sunday and thinking ooh, now if I put that one and that one together I could hear Dru saying it... and when I woke up today the idea was a huge thing in my brain that wouldn't go away so I sat down and did it. :D

excellent Dru voice as always, babe.

::loves Dru::

I like the fact that you never limit yourself to what or who you write.

Oh I do, I just have mad-brane days and you using the puss-in-boots eyes, and now Kyri... *g*

Thank you darlin'! *smooch*

Dude!
That's very, very cool.
:)
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on June 29th, 2005 04:42 am (UTC)
It made my brain hurt, but in a good way. Damn, the Beatles have some wierdass song titles. *g*

Thanks! :D

That's just so damn good! Dru rocks! Way to go!
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on June 29th, 2005 04:43 am (UTC)
Thanks, sweetie! It was kinda fun having her in my head but now she's gone and left all these Beatles snippets behind and they're driving me crazy! *g*

let it be, leave my kitten alone
That part really could be Dru :D Loved it, very clever use of all the titles. Awesome stuff.
darkhavensdarkhavens on July 3rd, 2005 01:33 am (UTC)
Thanks. :D

Dru is amazing fun to write.

*blink* Okay, I don't know how it happened but I had the same thought to do this for Sue's Music of Pain ficathon next week. Using song lyrics to make prose. There has got to be some hive mind stuff going on here. Either that or it's something in the water.

Awesome work, and using lyrics for Dru's dialogue is perfect. I wonder if Willow was able to work herself out of it?

There has got to be some hive mind stuff going on here. Either that or it's something in the water.

It's music festival season, at least over here, and the challenges are both music-related. Obviously we have synchronised a brain-wrinkle or two.

Thanks!

You'll hve to wait and see about Willow. ;)
