Summary: More of the baby!vamp!Xander!verse - Angelus turns Connor - or does he?

Dru and Angelus

"I can hear your puppy still ticking inside! Tick tock tick tock tick, all quiet and slow. He was supposed to be my baby brother, my little dog, something to feed and pet and take for picnics in the park."

Angelus paced the room and ignored her.

"You did it wrong, Daddy. The demon didn't stick. You drank him down and bled for him and he just spit it out. Can't you hear it, underneath the screaming and the laughter? A countdown, a swansong, singing the end of the world."

"That's enough, Princess! I just need to… try again, maybe."

Spike and Xander

"He's cute."

"He's trouble, luv. There's something not right about him. He's felt off since we picked him up, him and Dru. It's like there's something hiding, just behind his eyes. It's almost like he's got a bloody demon, but he hasn't. Little bastard's giving me the creeps."

"He's still cute - in a grubby, feral kinda way. D'you think, maybe, once Angelus has finished, we could play with him? Just the once, a 'welcome to the family' sort of deal."


"What? Oh, come on, he's pretty! I know you noticed."

"I don't want… There's something not right, that's all."

Spike and Angelus

"Not quite as easy as you thought it would be? Drain the little git, feed him Daddy's go-go juice and have him bouncing back in hours, a bonny baby demon? No worries about him being the magic child of soddin' vampires, or that one of them was bloody resurrected for the job! Oh no, not Angelus, he's all about the family. Don't you think it's time you told us what went wrong?"

Angelus turned cold eyes from the still, pale body that had lain unmoving and yet incorrupt for ten days.

"He'll wake soon. He's my son. I feel him."

Oh, very interesting. Connor turned wrong. Wow. Can't wait to see where this goes.

Well, clan Aurelius just doesn't *do* normal vamps, now do they? :sigh: Angelus should have known....
Xander wants to play, giggle.
"go-go juice" giggle.

I am completely remiss because I never comment to tell you how much I love this verse and admire how much characterization, plot, and emotion you can pack into such beautifully concise words.

But this:
Angelus turned cold eyes from the still, pale body that had lain unmoving and yet incorrupt for ten days.

"He'll wake soon. He's my son. I feel him."

is particularly well-done. It made me shiver.

Oh Angelus.

You never did think through the consequences, did you. Spike's right... that was a foolish thing to do. And now I can't wait to find out just HOW wrong it's gone.

Oh, man. Love it love it love it.
Yissss!! Angelus, hand him over to Xander and Spike.

Oh, so chilling! I can't wait to find out what went wrong? with Connor. :-)

Wow. Xander is naughty. But I'm very curious as to how Connor is responding to the demon. Very good.

You made me feel sad for Angelus! Who could have thought? But I'm loving this new twist.

Ohhhhhhhh! I can't figure where this is going.

I don't comment on these often enough, but always read and always love.

Loved the go-go juice, loved Drusilla's conversation and am eagerly awaiting learning about Connor when (if?) he wakes.

Poor Angelus, didn't quite work out yet. Great drabbles as ever, the family are just such sweethearts, in a deadly way

I'm awaitin' all on tenterhooks to find out just how badly Angelus screwed up -
