An2: This is my 52nd set of drabbles for open_on_sunday without missing a single challenge - I've now been drabbling for a whole year. These three will bring my total here to 272 drabbles. ::boggles::

Blood Sacrifice

Xander hardly ever thought about what he'd given up for Spike. No nine-to-five, no picket fence, no wife and screaming kids. He'd given up on any chance at a 'normal' life after Buffy had appeared on the scene.

Then Spike was gone, off to get his 'problem' fixed, and Xander was on his own. Lost. Empty. Until now.

The suction at Xander's neck increased, and he finally accepted that he wasn't being claimed as he'd first thought. Spike was back, unchipped, and out for blood. Sacrificial demon magnet blood.

The torn wrist forced between his lips was a welcome surprise.

Skinned Alive?

The leather pants were new, the tags still lying beside their bed, but Xander didn't care about that now. His entire being was focussed on the body behind his, grinding him into the raw red brick of the crumbling alley wall. He'd happily give everything he was to feel cool skin against his back, to feel hard flesh between his thighs, to feel his Sire taking what belonged to him and only him.

The pants never stood a chance against Spike's urgent, feral, need. The perfectly stitched seams were torn with ease. A willing sacrifice to the god of sex.

The List

"You're absolutely sure that's what she said?"

Spike rolled his eyes.

"You don't think she maybe mistranslated something the stars or Miss Edith whispered to her? She hasn't just decided it's time for payback?"

"Dru might be as mad as a hatter, luv, but she never screws with mojo. If she says that's what she needs, that's what she needs."

Xander reread the amazingly short list of ingredients Dru had delivered, along with a smile and an announcement that she'd be bringing 'Daddy' back as good as new.

Heart of Slayer
Tongue of Witch
Bottle of Nettle Wine
A Cat

fankoo darlin'. *smooch*

I know that last one isn't really your thing, but it's only a list... so far. ;o)
kat8cha on March 29th, 2005 11:30 pm (UTC)
As always your babyvamp!Xander was perfect. Blood Sacrifice was delightful in such a Xander 'oh, he wants me forever?' way and the last one? Funny. Though... a cat?
darkhavensdarkhavens on March 29th, 2005 11:56 pm (UTC)
Xander had such a low sense of self-worth that it never occured to him that Spike would want him forever right up to the last moment.

And the cat? Well, this is Dru - she has a thing for kittens. *g*

Oh, I'm glad we got to hear about the turning. I liked the switch in the first drabble, and then of course ripping off clothes is a fun kink, so coolness with that one as well.
darkhavensdarkhavens on March 30th, 2005 12:03 am (UTC)

I did actually drabble around the turning in the second set of b!v!X drabbles, but those were more Spike's side of the story, and I figured Xander deserved a chance to tell his tale. *g*

And stripping Xander is always fun, especially al fresco. ;)

Oh I so love your Baby!Vamp!Xander drabbles. I look forward to them now like chocolate! ::BG::

If you ever reach the end of them, please give us some warning so those of us who've become addicted can seek support before we go cold turkey, please?

Baby!Vamp!Xander withdrawal is viscious, I hear...

;) ::Licks you lots::

I promise to warn everyone if I start to run dry on the baby!vamp!Xander front, but so far I'm at 58 drabbles (17 sets) and still going strong. They're so much fun to do I can't imagine stopping any time soon.

Thankee! *smooch*

I love love love The List!! It's just perfect, isn't it? Well, you might be too shy to say so, but I will. It's perfect. ^_^ Congrats and Happy Drabble BDay.
darkhavensdarkhavens on March 30th, 2005 12:09 am (UTC)
Thank you!

I can't believe it's only been a year, and yet at the same time I'm thinking - it's been a whole year since I started doing this? So many drabbles! *g*

These are my first babyvamp!Xander. He's adorable!
darkhavensdarkhavens on March 30th, 2005 12:29 am (UTC)
Oh my, a b!v!X virgin. Hee! Glad you enjoyed them. There are 16 other sets behind the link if you want to see what else he's got up to. ;)

The list was a wierd one to write. I knew the first two ingredients would be necessary, but the others were originally blood wine and nettles, and somehow they ended up as nettle wine and a cat. o.O

And I think Xander would be sompletely discombobulated by the realisation that someone wants him that much.

Thanks. :D

I love baby!vamp!Xander. I always look forward to these. Although I am worried as to Dru's intentions to the cat.
darkhavensdarkhavens on March 30th, 2005 01:14 am (UTC)
Thankee. :D

The cat worries me a little too. *g*
Nebula: iconic_moon_spanderauthoressnebula on March 30th, 2005 01:04 am (UTC)
Ooh, loved them so much! Loved how Xander was surprised in the first one, taken in the second one, and then the incredulous 'no way' in the third. ^_^

But the cat? Nooo! I'll save you Mister Kitty! *snags cat and runs*

Yes I'm insane, why do you ask? *grins*

Lovely darling, and congrats on the year of drabbles!

darkhavensdarkhavens on March 30th, 2005 01:17 am (UTC)
Thank you! :D

But I can't let you run off with the cat. Dru needs that to bring Angelus back to us whole and sane. ;)

A whole year of drabbles. I'm still amazed I haven't missed one challenge yet. *g*
Sharvie_sharvie_ on March 30th, 2005 01:37 am (UTC)
Oooo! Lovely set. It made me realize I didn't know how Xander was turned so I went back and read all the Baby!vamp!Xander series. There were several I missed, but now I'm all caught up.
Soooo, delicious. You always have such a wonderful touch with your imagery. Skinned Alive was so vivid! Great work, all around.

darkhavensdarkhavens on March 30th, 2005 01:49 am (UTC)
A rereader! Yay! :D

One day, if and when I run out of ideas, I'll try and organise the individual drabbles into chronological order and see how they read like that. *g*

Thanks, sweetie!

I loved this line The torn wrist forced between his lips was a welcome surprise.

And the list of ingredients for Dru. *wicked grin* Can't wait for more!
darkhavensdarkhavens on March 30th, 2005 01:52 am (UTC)
That line is definitely a favourite. :D

And Dru knows some strange magicks. *g*

Ame: Vamp!Xander by darkhavensamejisuto on March 30th, 2005 04:44 am (UTC)
Wow. That first one was just great! Poor Xander was so afraid he was being used. And that third one? Is it weird that I'm more worried about Xander's cat than I am Buffy and Willow? He won't let anything happen to Seven of Nine, right?

Great work luv!
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 2nd, 2005 11:32 pm (UTC)

And no, Seven of Nine is completely safe. Xander would never let anything happen to her unless it came down to a choice between her and Spike. ;)
kaydee23kaydee23 on March 30th, 2005 04:48 am (UTC)
Oh no! Is Xander going to shop? Or Spike?
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 3rd, 2005 12:08 am (UTC)
You think either one would let the other go alone? *g*

We'll just have to wait for a suitable challenge to find out what happens. ;)

tabaquitabaqui on March 30th, 2005 08:02 am (UTC)
As always, fun, funny, and damn hot.
In a twisted kind of way.
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 3rd, 2005 12:08 am (UTC)
Of course twisted! *g*

Thankee. :D

Loved the first one! The insecurity is very Xander! And that is great: The torn wrist forced between his lips was a welcome surprise.
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 3rd, 2005 12:09 am (UTC)
Xander is/was so very insecure. It took that bloody wrist to convince him he was really wanted forever.
