Waiting

"Please don't come back wrong, Xander. Please be you."

Spike lost count of the times he repeated his basic plea, interspersed with promises and bribes, threats and words of love.

He'd never made a childe before - only turning minions when he needed something doing that he couldn't, or wouldn't, do himself. They were nothing more than cannon fodder - a nip and a sip and if they didn't rise you made a new one.

This was the most important thing he'd ever tried to do.

The clock ticked on, each second like an hour, until finally, Xander began to stir.

"Please…"




The Plan

"Please don't…"

Drusilla smiled and took another step forward.

"Don't what?"

"Don't… Don't do - anything! I promise I'll go far away and never come here again. I just wanted to see if Xander was okay, and yeah, he is. So I'll just be on my way and…"

Dru stepped closer.

"Silly red witch, black-hearted tree, you shouldn't lie to Miss Edith. She always knows and then she gets upset."

Willow swallowed hard. Oh, this was bad. Dru hadn't been part of 'The Plan' at all. 'The Plan' had been designed to take care of Spike and Xander. 'The Plan' sucked.



Thank you, literati, for my new baby!vamp!Xander icon! *smooch*

Spike is such a worrywart. *g*

You tell her, Dru!

*dances*

Willow's plans seem to always suck.
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on August 22nd, 2005 11:40 pm (UTC)
Hee! Thanks!

And yes, poor Willow. She doesn't have a slayer or a white knight to rescue her this time either... :D

Heee.
Yes, Dru, drink her down!!
:)

aaaw The first is so sweet.
Serves Willow right. Her 'plans' are bad.

Thanks! :D

Aww, loved the first one. I could just see Spike waiting anxiously for Xander to wake.

And the second one? *BG* LOVED it.

*hugs Spike*

Hee! Thanks. :D

I figure Spike must have worried - he knows how Dru turned out, and himself too, so there's plenty of cause for worrying! *g*

'The Plan' sucked.
*snickers* Here's hoping that Dru will too...

Niiiiiice!!!

'The Plan' sucked.

For starters...

Lovely drabbles :)

Poor Willow. Heee, I think I'm the only one to say that.

Aww, the first one was very touching.
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on August 22nd, 2005 11:46 pm (UTC)
LOL! yes1 You're the first one to feel sorry for poor, doomed Willow. Doooooooooooooooooooomed. *g*

Thanks!

Oh wow. So good. The first was so sad and the second...pretty scary.

Loved these.

*hugs*
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on August 22nd, 2005 11:48 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :D

Dru + Miss Edith = terrified me. I had to share. ;)

Excellent as always. :)

Thankee. :D

Great job, really feel Spike's worry in the first one. In the second one... well I'm the worried one now!
darkhavensdarkhavens on August 23rd, 2005 04:53 pm (UTC)
Thanks!

And you can stop worrying about Willow... She's toast. *g*

Spike lost count of the times he repeated his basic plea, interspersed with promises and bribes, threats and words of love.

Oh, god, I felt my heart twist a little. I'm going to be picturing that scene all night. I love how there's so much deep true love in this 'verse, and them being evil doesn't change a bit of it.
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on September 5th, 2005 01:57 am (UTC)
Thank you! That solid streak of love is there inside everything they do. I couldn't get away with half the drabbles I do if that wasn't the case. It transforms gorefests into romantic dinners for two. :D
