Notes: Back to the beginning with baby!vamp!Xander.


Rebirth

Xander suckled hard, drawing out the potent Sire's blood he'd craved since waking. The taste became everything, drawing him ever deeper into ecstasy, into the bottomless well of lovecareminealways devotion and need and hunger. So deep, so focussed, so mindlessly intent, he barely noticed strong, slender fingers tangling in his hair, supporting his head as he nuzzled the wound for more.

He drank till he was sated, then remained in place, lapping at the site of his first feeding. Life was different now, he could feel it in his bones. He didn't understand yet but he would; he trusted Sire.



Onwards

The car was packed with everything Spike thought they might need - weapons, clothes, snack foods for his childe, booze, and fags. He'd even turned a blind eye to the stupid sci-fi plates that Xander had snuck out inside a folded stack of jeans. His boy might be a demon but the geek genes still remained, and he couldn't wait to see what else had stuck.

The radio blared out heavy punk as Spike sang along, anticipating all the fun they'd have. The Welcome sign went down without a fight as they drove over, leaving the Hellmouth behind for new horizons.



In the Beginning...

"Tell me about the beginning, Spike."

"Again?"

"Yeah, but now you can tell the truth." Xander squirmed closer, cursing the gear stick for keeping him away from his beloved Sire. "I always knew you kept bits back because you thought I'd freak. You never mentioned biting or forever, not that way. Please, Spike? Sire, please?"

The freeway rolled by at a steady 90mph, as Spike told Xander how much he was wanted. From the moment pseudo-Angelus had offered him up as a snack, Spike had seen potential in his eyes. He'd known the scared young boy would be his childe.

I was trying to work out which one I liked best, but I couldn't - cause all 3 are terrific.

I swear to gods this verse keeps getting better and better. That's just high quality writing, right there! Well done!
darkhavensdarkhavens on June 1st, 2005 02:27 am (UTC)
Thank you, darlin'! I'm having so much fun with these boys it must be illegal. *smooch*

The first one describes becoming a childe just perfectly. If anyone wants to know anything about the sire/childe business, I'll send them your way and just say "Read her things, educate yourself." ~_^

And a big grin for the sci-fi plates snuck out into the car. *giggles* Too cute.

The last one, though? Too perfect. Seriously wishing it had really happened like that. With Spike deciding that Xander would be his the moment he laid eyes on him. *sighs happily*

Aw, thank you! Hee!

Believe and it will be so. Honestly. ;)

Hehehe! Xan and his plates. These are great. I especially like the last one.
darkhavensdarkhavens on June 1st, 2005 02:32 am (UTC)
Thanks. Yup, he may be a vampire now, but he's a vampire with geek genes. *g*

As for the last one - I don't think Xander would ever get bored with hearing how much he's wanted. He's so adorable when he's needy. ;)

Lovely, Lovely, Lovely.

I haven't been commenting on fic the way I should the past couple weeks, but I've been reading, and loving as always, your baby!Vamp!Xan drabbles. This last one in particular is really nicely done.
darkhavensdarkhavens on June 1st, 2005 02:34 am (UTC)
Thanks, sweetie. :D

Omg The begining. I loved them. Esp the last - how Spike had always wanted Xander. Wonderful as always. ^__^ More!
darkhavensdarkhavens on June 1st, 2005 02:35 am (UTC)
Thanks. Of course Spike has always wanted him! How could he not? *g*

Hee! Loved the Sci-fi plates and the nuzzling. Yum. For a story about soulless vampires...there sure is a lot of romance. It's so sweet! Makes me want to say "Awww."
darkhavensdarkhavens on June 1st, 2005 02:36 am (UTC)
hee! Thanks. 'Awww' is an entirely appropriate response. And of course there's romance - they're vampires in lurve! *g*

geek genes!
darkhavensdarkhavens on June 1st, 2005 02:37 am (UTC)
yes yes! Geek genes are a dominant genotype, capable of overpowering even the strongest demonic infiltrator. *g*

Good Lord you're good. Especially loved the last one.

::curtsies:: Thankee! :D

The middle one is my fave this time.

They are all great but the lines about the Welcome sign and the geek genes just made me smile all goofy.

::smooches::
darkhavensdarkhavens on June 1st, 2005 02:40 am (UTC)
Thanks! *smooch*

Spike couldn't leave Sunnydale without one last hit and run on that sign, and, let's face it, there's no way to eradicate geek genes . *g*
