Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No harm, no foul, no money made.
Warnings/Squicks: vamp!Xander, talk of murder, mild bondage.
Summary: More of my baby!Vamp!Xander. It's not necessary to read the previous ones, though they're fun!


He awoke by degrees; sensations slowly returning to cold extremities, though his mind remained infuriatingly blank as he tried to remember who and how and where and why.

He was lost, adrift in a sea of confusion and impulse, hunger and fear, and so much loneliness and need he wanted to howl, to rend and scream, to forge the bond he knew was missing deep inside.

One hand on his shoulder pulled him into a tight embrace; a second pressed his face against cool flesh.

"Drink from your Sire, Xan. Drink and accept your birthright as a new Aurelius Childe."

Mystery Tour


"Yes, luv?"

"Where exactly are we?"

"Heading for Missouri, Pet, remember? That last great aunt of Cornfed's and her whelps are there, down south a ways. You fell asleep an hour outside Peoria so I just drove. You've got a bloody death grip on that map!"

"You know I know we're taking care of Riley Finn-shaped business. When I asked you where we were I meant a name, a town... a State? I only wondered 'cause I'm pretty sure I just saw 'Welcome to Indiana' on a road sign back before you took that left..."

"You sayin' we're lost?"

Always Keep a Spare

Spike lay, waiting patiently, for him, which meant mild cursing, while Xander scoured the floor around the bed.

"I didn't hear it land, did you? It didn't hit the wall. It's all your fault for tickling me like that!"

"Like you hear you squeal, I do, and you know your squirming always gets me hot. Now calm yourself, it's gotta be down there somewhere, after all. Unless there's a bloody portal under the bed. Again."

Xander blanched and dropped onto all fours to take a look.

"No portals, just some fluff, and a key to a set of vamp-proof handcuffs..."

Snuffed Out

Xander watched his family interacting over dinner and for the very first time felt secure. Dru had made it plain she wanted Angelus, not his Spike.

"You sure that poofy soul of yours is lost for good this time? No witchling's gonna stick it on again?"

Dru giggled and rapped Spike's knuckles with a fork.

"Daddy's nasty spark has been snuffed out. Pff! Gone! There's nothing left to stick on if they try." She pouted prettily. "Are you going to let me taste your kitten before you leave? I'll only take a tiny little nip."

"Hands off, Princess. He's mine."

Ok, I really love Mystery tour. Just something about them lost and on a road trip ;)

There will be fic... at some point. *smooch*

And thank you, sweetie. I've had Roadtrip!Spander in my head for a long time. *g*

Gods I love these!! Great job! I really like the one with the lost key, that would so happen to me! Hee!
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 20th, 2005 01:11 am (UTC)
Thankee! :o)

I really like the one with the lost key, that would so happen to me! Hee!

Me too! (Thank heavens for cuffs with discreet safety releases. *g*)
yeah, i live on the hellmouth.: Still Evil.vichan on February 20th, 2005 12:28 am (UTC)
Okay, so I've read practically all of your vamp!xander work, and drooled relentlessly. But I've never commented, for no other reason than I am a not-commental whore.

I lurve this little drabble series. I don't even really LIKE drabbles - I feel like they're too short to leave me feeling satisfied, but I lurve yours.

Goddamnit. People like you are dragging me back into the Spike/Xander world of despair.
darkhavens: sx bite [me]darkhavens on February 20th, 2005 01:23 am (UTC)
LOL! So, I'm luring you back to the dark side? Hee!

Despair? There is no despair here. Delight, deliciousness, demon lovin' demon-magnet, depravity and debauchery, yes. *g*

Thank you! :o)

Woot! Possessive!Spike! *purrs* And the lost keys! *giggles* I can totally see that happening. (*tickle tickle tickle* *wriggle fling!* Oops. :-D)
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 20th, 2005 01:27 am (UTC)
Yes! And if you think carefully about that lost key drabble, Spike was in cuffs and still on the bed, which means he was probably cuffed to it, so... how did he tickle Xander and what with? o.O *g*

Thankee. :o)

Such fun stuff.
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 20th, 2005 01:32 am (UTC)
Thankee. They're fun to play with. *g*

Heehee! Portals under the bed...again, and keys to vamp-proof handcuffs. Loved that one. As well as, "You sayin' we're lost?" LOL
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 20th, 2005 02:13 am (UTC)
That 'again' just slipping in there. *g*

And I'm sure Xander would never accuse his beloved Sire of getting them lost - not in those exact words... Hee!

Thanks, sweetie. :o)
werewindlewerewindle on February 20th, 2005 03:06 am (UTC)
Mwah! Mwah! Mwah! Loved them! Loved them! Loved them! ^__^ *bounces* MORE!
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 20th, 2005 05:34 am (UTC)
YOu are so greedy! *g*

Thankee. :o)

There will be more, of that I am sure.
Lorrainelunabee34 on February 20th, 2005 03:42 am (UTC)
These are so great, especially the last. I love possessive!Spike--not even gonna give his Dark Princess a go with Xander. Yay!

(and, of course, Spike would get lost on the way to eviscerate his mortal enemies. *g*)
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 20th, 2005 05:39 am (UTC)
Well, if Dru got a turn, Angelus would want one, and there's just no way Spike would let that happen. Hee!

And Spike was too busy watching Xander sleep-wrestle the map to actually read road signs so it's Xander's fault really. Uhuh. Tis. *g*

Thankee. *smooch*

I love how you paint a full picture with just short snippets of information. Very well done!
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 20th, 2005 05:41 am (UTC)
Thank you. Sometimes the bits that get left out are as important as the bits that get put in. Both have an impact on the reader. Deciding which is which is the hard part. ;o)
Nebula: iconic_moon_spanderauthoressnebula on February 20th, 2005 04:31 am (UTC)
*giggles* LOVED the Mystery Tour. I could just picture Spike's indignant face when he asked if Xander thought they were lost. And then the third one just made me laugh, imagining Spike like that. But the first and last one? Way too cool.

These are just awesome! Loved 'em sweetie! *snogs you*

darkhavensdarkhavens on February 20th, 2005 05:47 am (UTC)
Thanks. :o)

The 'mystery tour' was Xander's fault for falling asleep while navigating and looking so adorable sleep-wrestling the map and... Well, that's Spike's story and he's sticking to it. :P

Your baby!vamp!Xander is as forgetful as my human Xan - both losing the keys to the handcuffs (even without Giles' intervention).
Poor Spike, he's really got his work cut out for him - lol

Ah, but this was definitely Spike's fault. If he hadn't tickled Xander -though I'm not entirely sure where he tickled, or what he tickled with, being all cuffed and immobile... o.O

Thanks, darlin'
most excellently twisted: Hugsfanbot on February 20th, 2005 11:53 am (UTC)
Your drabbles are like Dove chocolates. You only really *need* a few at a time but you *want* the whole bag.
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 22nd, 2005 01:12 am (UTC)
You're comparing my work to chocolate? ::sappy grin:: Thank you!
Nashnashmaveric on February 20th, 2005 02:57 pm (UTC)
::grin:: I so love vamp!Xander and his adventures sound like such fun. Want Spike to be my sire too ::pout::
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 22nd, 2005 01:49 am (UTC)
Want Spike to be my sire too ::pout::

Oh, I think he has his hands very full with Xander. And somehow I don't think Xander would appreciate the competition. *g*

Thanks, sweetie.

I can't read this verse without sighing: AAAUUUWWWWWW!!!!!!
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 22nd, 2005 01:51 am (UTC)
I can't write it without grinning and giggling. *g*

Thanks. :o)
kat8cha on February 20th, 2005 06:51 pm (UTC)
OOOooo! Yay! Kill all the Finn's!!! ~Hacksaw~ And ooo with the last drabble. Led to happy possessive goodness!
darkhavensdarkhavens on February 22nd, 2005 01:53 am (UTC)
Had to kill off the Finns, just had to. It's Riley's fault. And he gets to live and know that they're all dead because of him. ::cackles::

Thanks, sweetie.
