Notes: More in the unlife of baby!vamp!Xander. The tracks I chose came from the All Time Greatest Country Songs as found on Amazon.

Everybody's Talkin' by Harry Nilsson

Everybody's talking at me
I don't hear a word they're saying
Only the echoes of my mind

Sometimes Xander's visions leave him wiped out and frustrated, unable to decode the things he's seen, the sounds he's heard. He does his best to feel his way through darkness and distortion, but every time he fails, he takes it personally and frets.

Spike has spent a hundred years and more looking after Dru, but nothing's ever got to him the way that Xander's sad eyes do. A flutter of long lashes and a lip-quivering pout reduces him to putty in an instant.

Always on My Mind by Willie Nelson

Maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine

Angelus studied the naked, feral boy pinned beneath him as he strained and squirmed for freedom, for some leverage, a chance to pass along the pain brewing in dark eyes. He'd never been so proud.

"My son."

Connor hissed and bucked with every ounce of strength he had. Angelus rode it out with a smile.

"My perfect son. I'm betting you're as vicious as your mother used to be. Can't wait to see the demon in you."

The first one was all: Aww, isn't that sweet. The second was like: Oh, shit. Angelus is going to turn him. This little 'verse just gets better and better.

Aww... poor Xan, and poor Spike. Such a cute couple. And I'm eager to see what happens with Connor.

I so love Baby!Vamp!Xander and his carer Spike, they are such a lovely, if bloody, couple.

Vamp!Conner, I think the world should watch out, including Angelus
