Learning Curve

Xander took a while to adjust to his new abilities. He kept forgetting just how strong he was. Nothing was really safe, not clothes or doors or food. He folded, spindled, mutilated them all to some extent.

His Sire developed a twitch that reappeared each time he 'oops'ed, a tiny tic just under his left eye. But Spike never shouted, never blamed or accused. Well, only once, and Xander managed to get the seams re-stitched, and he promised never to wear the coat again.

Eventually he learned he was allowed to make mistakes; that breakages weren't always repaid in kind.

Don't be A Hero

"Dammit, Spike, that stings!"

Xander tried to draw his face back from the abrasive cloth, but hardly managed to move a quarter inch.

"Serves you right for trying to take out three raging Grazn'rth demons. I told you to wait five minutes till I got there."

"But, Spike, they were..."

"I don't give a flying fuck what they were doing! By the time I'd got there you were on your knees in the mud. A minute later and I'd've turned that corner just in time to see you dust. I don't ever want to be that scared again!"

"Sorry, Sire."

Maxed Out

"What's the damage?"

"Let's see... You've got the chrome teardrop cockring for sixty five and the tiered glass plug for forty. The remote controlled plug is seventy five and with the vibrating Rubber Bondage Duckie that's an even two hundred dollars. I'll throw in a bottle of Astroglide for free as we're still out of those leather-scented candles your pet was asking for last week."

"Hey, I keep telling you I'm not a...!"

"Pet, let me pay the nice demon and we can go. We've got one more stop and then we'll head on home and try these out."

I like.
The first? Sniffly.
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 16th, 2005 09:59 pm (UTC)
Wow! You were fast! :D

::passes you a tissue::

That first one was just supposed to be a 'Xander doesn't know his own strength' drabble, and then I had a few words left over and that sentence about his old life kinda wrote itself and... *g*

tabaquitabaqui on April 16th, 2005 10:04 pm (UTC)
Yeah. I'm a refresh hooor.

*blows nose*

Whee! I missed baby!vamp!Xander! LOL Love all of these but that first one? I can just see Xander going "oops" and Spike twitching. Great job!
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 16th, 2005 10:10 pm (UTC)

I doubt Spike twitched after the first 'oops', or even the fifth, but by the twenty-fifth that tic was probably woefully familiar. *g*

love love the first drabble!
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 17th, 2005 12:29 am (UTC)

I can just see Xander ripping doors off their hinges cos he's not really concentrating, and holding on to his food too tight and breaking it by mistake. *g*

ooh lovely! the first one especially.
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 17th, 2005 12:30 am (UTC)
Thankee sweetie. *smooch*
Sharvie_sharvie_ on April 16th, 2005 10:40 pm (UTC)
I love the twitch! It's amazing how often I forget how much Spike had to deal with concerning Dru. And it so funny that Xander breaking stuff is what makes him create a tic! *rotflmao*
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 17th, 2005 12:32 am (UTC)
:D Thanks!

Dru was... unpredictable, to say the least. Xander has a fatalistic predictability - he says 'oops' and Spike knows something's broken. *g*

I just lurve baby!vapm!Xander :) My favorite is the exchange at the sex shop!
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 17th, 2005 12:41 am (UTC)
Thanks! :D

I can see them easily spending $200 a week in there, and every week Xander says he's not a pet. *g*

Loved these. The first was so sweet, but the second with Spike lecturing Xander because he'd almost lost him was wonderful. The third one make me laugh out loud.
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 17th, 2005 12:45 am (UTC)
Thanks! :D

The funny ones often have me giggling in my seat as I write them. *g*
werewindlewerewindle on April 16th, 2005 11:27 pm (UTC)
I loved them eps the last hehe. ^__^ More!
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 17th, 2005 12:46 am (UTC)
Thanks! I even researched that last one to keep it accurate. ;)

I love these. You do the nicest drabbles, ::G::.

The first one was so sweet!
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 17th, 2005 12:48 am (UTC)
Thanks! :D

I have a mental image of Xander pulling on his new tight jeans (cos Spike wont let him wear baggy anything any more) and suddenly he's holding a detached waistband in his hands while the denim is all bunched around his knees. *g*

I haven't looked at the link, but 'rubber bondage duckie' just sounds so cute *g*

Xander's learning all sorts of stuff! Love the oops bit. I can imagine him saying that, and Spike's reaction is perfect. Nice touch at the ending... gives it an emotional layer on top of it just being funny.
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 17th, 2005 12:07 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Xander is learning, slowly. And those darn emotional layers just keep sneaking in. *g*

The first and second were all sweet and nice and the third just made me giggle! ::snicker::

Vibrating Rubber Bondage Duckie??? *gigglesnort*
Drabbles number 1 and 2 were so moving! *pets the boys*
darkhavensdarkhavens on April 17th, 2005 12:09 pm (UTC)
The Vibrating Rubber Bondage Duckie is adorable! There's a Vibrating Rubber Devil Duckie too. *g*

Thanks, sweetie. :D
Nebula: iconic_moon_spanderauthoressnebula on April 17th, 2005 02:39 pm (UTC)
That last one made me snicker. Rubber Bondage Duckie? *giggles again*

But the first two made me 'aww'. So sweet, and perfect! That's how I imagined Spike as a Sire. Absolutely fantastic sweetie.


darkhavensdarkhavens on April 20th, 2005 04:54 am (UTC)
Thanks! The duckie is adorable with his leather gear and his little studded collar. *g*
