4 drabble set for open_on_sunday challenge #81 Slayers who are not Buffy


Author: darkhavens
Title: “Tell me about the Slayers, Spike.”
Pairing: S/X
Rating: R for violence
Spoilers: Definitely AU
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No harm, no foul, no money made.



An Age Old Question...

"Tell me about the Slayers, Spike."

"Never thought I'd meet one, pet. I'd listened to the stories, heard the rumours, watched Angelus pontificate on what they were about, but I never thought I'd find one in the middle of all that mess."

"What mess was that, Spike?"

"How many times have you had me tell these stories, Xan? You know which bloody mess I'm on about."

He sighed and wriggled closer to his Sire.

"I know, but I'm remembering it again, the very first time we lay like this and you told me things. So..." Poke.

"Dammit, let me think!"




First Blood - The Boxer Rebellion

"Bodies, fire and bullets were all about and we were loving every minute of it. Chaos, devastation, one great never-ending scream of mad frustration as the people fell like flies. The feeding was too easy, they were falling on our fangs to get away, and then there she was. A tiny china doll, all full of rage and hate, determined in that mess to kill the demons who had come to join the fun. She might have had a chance if there'd been food for her to eat, but she was skin and bone, bound by a will of iron."




Second Down - New York Subway Train

"I've always loved to spend time on the subway. There's just something entertaining about so many bodies, all trapped underground, and no escape in sight if something should go wrong. Of course, that night, the trains were pretty empty, just the two of us locked in combat in the early morning hours, too late for all the clubbers and too early for the early morning shifts. She fought me like a demon, had me pinned, she did, as well. I'd never come so close to death before. She earned respect. That's why I took the coat and not her blood."




Fourth To Fall - Madrid

"She came out of nowhere, remember, pet? All Spanish curses and that beautiful long braid flying out behind her in the wind. I still can't figure what her Watcher was thinking letting her wear her hair that way, it was too easy to grab hold and reel her in. She put up quite a fight though, broke your arm if I remember, and I do, so don't go looking at me like that, you weren't to know she had that flail hid up her sleeve."

"You missed out Buffy, Spike."

"Oh no, Xan, she was yours. You tell that tale..."

Sad but true. Deadline pressure is my friend, though oddly, more often than not, the closer a deadline gets for one item, the more I'm inspired to write others. *g*

.. and I never told anyone about that time you.. yes..

::scowls:: And you'd better not...

These are strangely beautiful...really great chemistry and damn I'm interested in how Xander killed Buffy!

These are strangely beautiful

Thanks, darlin'! I wasn't going to answer this weeks challenge, even before the grunge!muse bit, but I got hit by inspiration just an hour ago and ran with it. Spike sometimes has an odd way of looking at things and I tried to see the various slayers through his eyes.

And Xander? I'm not tellin'... cos I honestly don't have a clue. It just happened, I swear. ;o)
Ameamejisuto on October 12th, 2004 02:50 am (UTC)
Please tell us the story of how Xander defeated the wicked slayer? We'll be good mommy,really!

**puppy dog eyes**

Hee! I wish I knew, sweetie, honestly. And if I ever figure it out, I promise to tell you children all about it. ;o)
Ame: Stalkeramejisuto on October 12th, 2004 03:52 am (UTC)
Hey it was worth a shot!

Thanks luv!

Oddly perfect, that vampire respect thing.

And Buffy being Xander's?

Thanks!

Yes, Xander killed Buffy and we know not how. Hee! I think after all she put him through he deserved it! *g*

Oh, nice - Xander got Buffy (god's knows she certainly acted like a bitch on many occasions). Now you've got me hooked and want to know more.

Begs with sad eyes and floppy ears - Please

LOL! I don't know how he got her. Maybe one day I'll know and then I'll tell the story, but for now, we only know he bagged his first slayer before Spike got his third. *g*

Glad you enjoyed. :o)

Liked that ending, perfect set-up for it.
darkhavensdarkhavens on October 12th, 2004 04:27 am (UTC)
Thanks! It wasn't planned during the writing of the first two, but halfway through the New York one it hit me.

Damn.

"You missed out Buffy, Spike."

"Oh no, Xan, she was yours. You tell that tale..."


Christ. That was heavy. You have used your hundred words wisely, Yoda. I bow before you *bows* great storytelling.
darkhavensdarkhavens on October 12th, 2004 11:28 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I firmly believe that if anyone has the right to kill Buffy it's Xander. *g*

Thanks!

From what little I remember of the Boxer Rebellion, people were very short of food, and China was a very very male-centric country, so the boys got fed first and best. She must have been a skinny little thing. *g*
