Sleeper, set of 3 drabbles for open_on_sunday challenge #96 - Sound
Author: darkhavens
Title: Sleeper
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Rating: PG-13

Spike tries to remember the last time he's slept in the same room as someone with a heartbeat without having been in them or under them at some earlier point in the proceedings. He draws a blank.

So, this is something else that damnable chip is responsible for. Joy.

The heartbeat in question begins to speed up, as does the sound of shallow respiration, and the scent of overheating human skin. Interesting. Harris is obviously having an x-rated dream, if the sudden cloud of teenage hormones is anything to go by, and Spike can only sit and listen.

Bloody unfair.

I Dream Of You

"Spike! No... Don't, please! Spike, I'm not... I don't... I... I can't...I... Oh God!"

Spike's grin gleams in the dim green light of his reluctant host's radio alarm clock.

Well, well, well. The last thing he expects is to hear his own name whispered with such passion, and certainly not accompanied by the delicious aroma of horny male and the unmistakeable scents and sounds of a violent climax. It gives him food for thought as he carefully works one hand loose and pops the buttons of his fly. Shame to waste such a tantalising scenario...

Spike's hand begins to pump.

Dream Weaver

The routine soon becomes familiar. One works, one sleeps. Patrol or research, then 'home'. Food is consumed at some point, and then the rope comes out. Spike is tied before Xander strips to his shorts and goes to sleep.

It takes about an hour for Xander's dreams to start, and straight away Spike picks up his game.

"Can you hear me, Xander? Know who I am?" Spike whispers, soft and sibilant, careful not to wake his sleeping beauty.


"That's right. Now, peel back that sheet and let me see you touch yourself."


"Do it!"

And, sleeping, Xander does.

*waits for drabbles #4-?*

More? Please? Oh god, please?

That's what your imagination is for.
Wonder how far Spike managed to take it before Xander woke up?
Wonder how long Xander left it before admitting he was awake?
Wonder how much control Spike really had by the time it all came out...

::runs off::

*drool* More, please. I got a free packet of tissues at Fenchurch Street today and need to use them up. Can't think of a better way.

The second is my favourite. *drool*

Aren't you coming to the James concerts in London? *whimper*
darkhavensdarkhavens on January 26th, 2005 12:17 am (UTC)
See my reply to Adis. It's all down to your imagination... :P

And no, sadly I'm not London-bound. They're sold out now. there's only one date open in Leeds and another in Bristol. :(

Oooh! That's just...wicked. I LURVES it! Thank you!
darkhavensdarkhavens on January 26th, 2005 02:36 am (UTC)
Wicked was what I was aiming for. *g* Thank you!
Bookworm_jen: Xanderfannishnej on January 26th, 2005 12:26 am (UTC)
Oh wow...
That was amazing.

I have a question that maybe you can help me figure out the answer for:
I don't like Spike. Why then do I always enjoy well written Spander?
darkhavensdarkhavens on January 26th, 2005 02:48 am (UTC)
Oh wow...
That was amazing.

Thank you!

Hmmm, I'm not entirely sure I'm the right person to answer that question. I fell in love with Spike the first time I saw him in School Hard. He was evil, pretty and completely different from the other Jossverse vampires we'd seen in that he obviously cared very much for Drusilla.

Maybe you like Spander because the characters work so well together. Snark, humour, delightful mental pictures of light-on-dark or vice versa...

Personally, I think there's just something magical about them together. For whatever reasons, the pairing works for a surprising number of people. Which is great, 'cause it means more fic! *g*

Thankee! :o)

*blinkblink* Heehee. Evil Spike with the most excellent plan, lol. Mucho with the hotness. And the evilness. I'm not sure which is floating my boat right now, but I'll just go with it. *bg*
darkhavensdarkhavens on January 26th, 2005 02:51 am (UTC)
Thanks! Evil!Spike is so much fun to write.

God, you are so so good at these. I'm completely in love with your drabbles.
darkhavensdarkhavens on January 26th, 2005 02:52 am (UTC)
Thank you! *smooch*
Sharvie_sharvie_ on January 26th, 2005 01:26 am (UTC)
Ooo! Bad, naughty Spike! Lovely little set.
Love this line. "Can you hear me, Xander? Know who I am?" Spike whispers, soft and sibilant, careful not to wake his sleeping beauty. I like the 'know who I am' part. I don't know...something about that. Huh, usually I can figure this stuff out and why I like things but that...that is just really cool. Maybe it is cause Spike is being careful with him, in a way. Making sure it is really about him...I'm not making sense. I'll just say, "It's gooood!"
darkhavensdarkhavens on January 26th, 2005 02:57 am (UTC)
Thank you!

I'm not quite sure what it is about 'Know who I am?' either, but it made me shiver as I wrote it so I knew it worked somehow. *g*

Whenever I see drabbles from you I know I am in for something special, and you never disappoint! These were very hot and drool worthy.

Thanks! Evil!Spike is always fun to play with. *g*

hmm...guess who's dom! great trio! But yeah, like Xan 'acknowledging' his dream lover. Damn now you want ME to imagine #4? Something with the ropes getting tied looser and looser....
darkhavensdarkhavens on January 27th, 2005 11:36 pm (UTC)

Loosening ropes sounds like a plan... *g*
