The Change

Willow had told him more than once, but until it happened to him Xander still hadn't quite believed it. But there had been no great cosmic moment when a switch was flipped, redirecting his orientation from strictly heterosexual to 'gay now' or, at the very least, bi. Instead, it was a slow, insidious process.

Stray lustful thoughts of ivory skin and blacked out nails caught him unaware at completely inappropriate moments. He dreamed of tearing open that tight black tee and closing his teeth around a tiny crinkled nipple laying flat against an inhuman sculpted six-pack.

The gayness just... happened.


He was fairly sure that Xander understood why he'd patrolled alone. He hadn't wanted his humiliation to be seen. There was no pride to be derived from turning other's kills; the waiting and the watching drove him mad. He had to time his strikes just right, before the heartbeats faded, and lick the open wound then share his blood, but he'd persevered.

He'd set his ragged minions to robbing everyone they could, determined to raise the money that he'd need. In the end the process was fairly simple, though expensive. Little more than flicking off a switch.

He was back.

Topsy Turvy

"Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease, Spike? Can I, just this once?"

Spike tracked the hopeful, bouncing vampire from one end of the bedroom to the other, automatically tuning out the pleading babble as he considered the suggestion.

"You want a turn in the driver's seat? That's what this is all about?"

He glanced at the bound, unconscious blond boy on the bed, and, making a swift decision, bent down and snapped his fragile neck.

"Fair enough, Xan, you can have your turn as top. But the only arse your dick gets near is mine, understood? I've heard that you're a Viking in the sack..."

Squee! I love this, especially that last one where the only ass he's allowed is Spike's. That's just so sweet! Thank you!

Spike would never be a typical Sire, and I can't see him allowing baby!vamp!Xander to have sex with anyone else, even if it means offering up his own arse to the cause. Plus, I'm sure he's been wondering since he heard the rumours and this is the perfect chance to find out without it seeming like he was actually curious. He's doing it as a 'favour' to Xander. *g*

Love your 'switch' topics, lol! And in the baby!vamp!Xander 'verse, yay! He's just so cuuuute. Oh, man, and I can so picture him bouncing around the bedroom, lol!
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 13th, 2005 12:57 am (UTC)
Thank you! He's so adorable and wicked and demony. Such fun to write. *g*

I love 'the change'. Sure Xan.. just happened. ::coughbullshitcough::

Btw, I plan on bugging and poking you until you write that babyvamp!xan fic.

darkhavensdarkhavens on February 13th, 2005 01:05 am (UTC)
He did! It was a gradual thing, and honestly, who wouldn't be seduced by the pretty that is Spike? *g*

It's on my to-do list. ;o)

I like the second a LOT - Spike so EASILY could have gotten the chip out, but stupid ME!!
Fun stuff, baybee!
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 13th, 2005 01:08 am (UTC)
Thank you!

It would have been so easy for him to have created minions and used them to help him get the chip out or 'fix' it somehow. ME just wanted to keep him neutered for the ::gags:: Spuffy.

Dark, my precious, are you archiving these anyplace? I want to be able to read them all together at some point.

darkhavensdarkhavens on February 13th, 2005 01:13 am (UTC)
I was only considering this just an hour or so ago. I thought I might put them all together in one post, in chronological order, and then slot any others in as they happen. But I'll take a Chocolate Covered Xander Pop&trade to nibble on while I consider it some more. Ta! ;o)

You really took this challenge and made the most of it. These are nicely done. I always enjoy reading your work.
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 13th, 2005 11:05 pm (UTC)
Thank you. 'Switch' is a word with several meanings and I didn't get to touch on all of them but I gave it my best. ;o)
reremouse: Ev0lreremouse on February 13th, 2005 02:29 am (UTC)

Yes yes yes!

The first is my favorite - and the second is true. Spike could have gotten the chip out that way.

Big Bad is back baby!
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 13th, 2005 11:13 pm (UTC)
Like I said to tabaqui - ME had to keep the chip in place to manufacture the Spuffy. Only neutered!Spike would ever have stood for that. ::spits:: *g*

Yes, he's back and out to have some fun!

Thanks, sweetie.

Ooh...*shivers* That was creepy. Creepy but good. I really, really liked them. The first and the second one especially. Though, baby!vamp!Xander on that last one made me giggle. ~_^

darkhavensdarkhavens on February 13th, 2005 11:20 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I enjoy drabbling away the chip. It makes me happy. *g*

This is like becoming a guilty little pleasure cause the boys are *so* bad - and yet I don't care. Lovely as usual. (MORE! um, so much for not being demanding *shrugs* MORE!)
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 13th, 2005 11:21 pm (UTC)
This is like becoming a guilty little pleasure cause the boys are *so* bad

That's exactly how I feel when I write them. LOL!

And as for more - well, open_on_sunday's challenge this week is 'Valentine'. How can I resist? *g*

These were adorable.
You should write a long baby!vamp Xander/Spike fic, cause that would be so cool.

*puppy eyes*
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 13th, 2005 11:23 pm (UTC)
Oh lordy, you and literati are ganging up on me! LOL!

Not the puppy eyes! Anything but the puppy eyes!

Thankee. *g*

Loved them! Of course. And they are so in canon. Or should have been if ME had got their collective heads out of their collective arses and let Xander carry through with his obvious bi-ness and got rid of that blasted, emasculating chip.

You want a turn in the driver's seat? Hee! Spike is such a good sire.
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 13th, 2005 11:33 pm (UTC)
Canon - it so should have been Xander doing the 'gay now' speech, even if he went for 'bi now'. *g*

And yes, Spike is a wonderful Sire. A wonderful, loving, very possessive Sire. Thankee!

More, any time, would be welcome.

darkhavensdarkhavens on February 13th, 2005 11:35 pm (UTC)
More on the way. ;o)

Sam: My Xander!moimoietmoi on February 13th, 2005 12:31 pm (UTC)
Loved this!
Xander turning gay and Spike being all possessive!
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 13th, 2005 11:43 pm (UTC)
Thanks. :o)

And Spike is a very possessive Sire indeed, but only because he loves his baby!vamp!Xander. *g*
