Warnings/Squicks: Vamped!Xander
Summary: The first six of a set of twenty six 'mood drabbles', in alphabetical order.
Notes: Written for fall_for_sx. Six down, twenty to go!

A is for Agitated

"C'mon, Spike! It's almost dawn already!"

Xander claws ineffectually at the bone-deep itch that stretches from shoulder to ankle, the length of his left side. He knows the buildings opposite will protect them for at least another half an hour, but it's driving him crazy and even vampire strength won't let him get a good hard scratch going on, not without shredding the sleeve of his favourite jacket. And maybe his flesh.


Brakes squeal. Bundles of over-inked paper thud on the pavement. Spike dives out and snatches up a new TV Guide.

"Stop your whining. We can go now."

B is for Breathless

She watches from a darkened doorway, serendipitously downwind. She doesn't really understand what she is witness to.

Two men, one dark and broad, one pale and lean, stand in moonlight, silver slivers turning line and plane and form into marble art.

Their kiss goes on forever. Mouths joined as one, no space to pass a breath of air between them.

On and on and on. Ravenous. Romantic. Ridiculously hot.

She inches closer, drawn by the power, the passion, the perfection of what she sees. She's envious of the languor and the lust. The love.

Then the wind changes.

She's lunch.

C is for Calm

Spike cannot find the words to adequately describe how he feels when that little red witch tries to stitch his Xander's soul back on.

He's accustomed to a flood of rage when someone tries to hurt what's his; he's used to hungering for revenge, for gratification of the violent persuasion. Blood has curdled in his veins beneath the wash of fear that what is his will soon be gone, beyond his protection.

He's not used to this.

This is pure ice and clear-headed thinking. This is a plan that won't fall beneath the wheels of his impatience.

This is calm.

D is for Drunk

"But… You were completely hammered when you kidnapped Willow to do that love spell on Dru. I know I had a concussion but you were the one slurring your words and getting all wet and weepy."

Spike keeps loading crates of hijacked alcohol into the trunk of the Desoto, one ear tuned to the road and the sound of rapidly approaching sirens.

"I'd been pouring industrial strength rotgut down my neck since Brazil, you daft git, of course I was drunk! Had no blood in my alcohol stream, did I? But, you want to get drunk, I'll get you drunk."

E is for Enamored

Spike didn't realise the size of the problem until Xander came home with a jacket like the Captain's, yards of fake gold braid carefully stitched to the red fabric - a gift for him.

Enough was enough.

"I didn't mind when you started watching the show. I didn't mind buying you the boxsets and watching them with you every week for three months. I didn't even mind too much about the stupid little action figures you've got tucked under the bed where you think I won't find them, but I am not dressing up as Captain John Hart while we fuck!"

F is for Fascinated

Spike never tires of watching Xander stalk his prey.

On city streets he's pretty rent boy, affable student or stumbling drunk. In smaller towns he's clueless tourist, earnest salesman or smoky-eyed drifter. On the long, deserted highways that stretch between the two, he's the one they all stop for - floppy-haired and big-grinned, as harmless as a puppy and twice as cute. Even in the parks - Yellowstone, Yosemite, Acadia and all the rest - he fits right in, all fluid limbs and flaring nostrils, wild hair and wilder eyes; a predator on the prowl.

Spike never tires of watching. How could he?

Pt2: G-O

So much love for them all, but Breathless is AWESOME!

LOL @ Captain John Hart. Oh, Xander. You kinky thing. :D

Thank you, baybee! I loved the idea of someone (not me, of course) being so enthralled by the pretty picture they make together that they end up as... lunch! *g*

I'm falling for baby!vamp!Xander all over again, methinks. *has glee*

Ooooh calm Spike is skeery!

I need to know what Spike did about the Willow situation. *bats eyes*

{Captain Jack Jackets FTW!}
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on October 14th, 2008 12:07 am (UTC)
Actually, in the baby!vamp!Xander 'verse, Dru was the one who took care of the Willow situation. (I was rereading as I tag-checked all my posts. *g*)

Spike refuses to be usurped in his boy's affections by a time-travelling look-alike! :P

windandsummer on October 10th, 2008 04:45 am (UTC)
I really like these, some cute and funny some simply dead hot. Of course my fav is E is for Enamored, cuz Xander so would.~Bee
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on October 14th, 2008 12:08 am (UTC)
Thank you!

Xander loves his Sire, but Captain John is so pretty... ;)
mysticsoblivion on October 10th, 2008 08:14 am (UTC)
Yummy! Mys is thinking she may just have to permanently add you to her "vamp!Xander Mys'll read" list, lol. C was beautiful, so raw. *purrs* But damn E, *rofl* too beautiful, so perfect hahahahaha!!!!
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on October 14th, 2008 12:11 am (UTC)
Oh, I love writing vamp!Xander, and he has a whole tag to himself. I(See this post's tag.) He's spoiled rotten by his sire, and gloriously vicious.

takhen: orelsetakhen on October 10th, 2008 08:56 am (UTC)
Great concept. Very enjoyable looking forward to the next part.
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on October 14th, 2008 12:11 am (UTC)
Thank you! :D

What a lovely way to start Friday morning! I've missed my baby vamp Xan.
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on October 14th, 2008 12:12 am (UTC)
Thank you!

I've missed him too. I hope he's back to stay for a while, I miss writing him.
Kevin Jonesmulder200 on October 10th, 2008 01:26 pm (UTC)
LOL at Captain John Hart. That's my favorite one. Well, that and calm.
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on October 14th, 2008 12:12 am (UTC)
Thank you!

Xander is still a fanboy, even with fangs. *g*
jasonsnene: Spander_bluegreenjasonsnene on October 10th, 2008 01:51 pm (UTC)
Those are awesome! I particualarly liked C and F.
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on October 14th, 2008 12:13 am (UTC)
Thank you! :D

I know I could watch Xander on the prowl and never get tired of it. *g*
Devo79devo79 on October 10th, 2008 01:59 pm (UTC)
I like the way this is going and I love how you've used the drabble form.

Now give me more!

darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on October 14th, 2008 12:14 am (UTC)
Thank you!

If you can't wait for more of this particular version of baby!vamp!Xander, then check out the other posts under this tag. There are over 100 of them. ;)
missus_grace: spanderonemissus_grace on October 10th, 2008 02:01 pm (UTC)
These are great. But will you be telling us what sort of revenge he got on Willow in later installments? Enquiring minds want to know!
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on October 14th, 2008 12:15 am (UTC)
Willow came to a very sticky end, but I think Spike might have had some fun with her first. I shall have to see if any other 'feelings' inspire me to get descriptive. *g*

kitty_poker1: Silver Spander by literatikitty_poker1 on October 10th, 2008 03:11 pm (UTC)
I am not dressing up as Captain John Hart while we fuck!

LMAO! All brilliant, hon. I might prefer Calm, but it's by a fingernail.

darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on October 14th, 2008 12:16 am (UTC)
Thank you! *smooch*

You Xander's just a big ol' fanboy at heart, and Captain John was so very pretty! *g*
it only burns when I breathe: btvs: spander - lust by jameschickspikedluv on October 10th, 2008 06:23 pm (UTC)
Those are fabulous! I enjoyed them all, but especially Xander wanting Spike to dress like Captain John Hart and waiting til nearly dawn for the TVGuide, lol! *g*
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on October 14th, 2008 12:17 am (UTC)
Thank you!

They're both mad as hatters and unrepentant fanboys. How could we not love them to pieces? *g*
Sstartiller on October 10th, 2008 07:17 pm (UTC)
Lol Xander's a nerdy vamp ROFL
darkhavens: b!v!x [literati]darkhavens on October 14th, 2008 12:18 am (UTC)
Yes! He so is. But then Spike will risk flaming out just to get hold of the latest TV Guide, so really, they're made for each other. *g*
