Fic: 'Power', Spike/Xander, for mini-nanowrimo day 28

Author: darkhavens
Title: Power
Fandom: Pairing: Buffy: Spike/Xander, reference to Angelus/Spike
Rating: R for violent imagery
Words: 100
Concrit: darkhavens @ slashverse.com. If you spot a typo, please feel free to tell me in comments. I want you to!
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No harm, no foul, no money made.
Summary: Spike learns about power.
Notes: Written for slashthedrabble prompt #146 - Power, and also for mini_wrimo, day 28. Can be read as a standalone, though in my head it is part of the baby!vamp!Xander 'verse.


To be able to snap bones like twigs and peel away skin like blood-soaked rags and still have your victim beg for your touch, your attention; to drain a body of its lifeblood while it wriggles and flops, then leave it balanced on the cusp to survive or perish while you laugh - that's what Angelus taught Spike about power.

Angelus didn't have a clue.

True power is taking a fragile human being and, in that taking, creating a demon, an equal, family - making them yours.

Having Xander in his bed, by his side, because he wants to be - that's power.
