Unlife In SoCal

Babes in bikinis, pretty boys in tight short shorts - oh yeah, the SoCal vampires loved the summer. They picnicked in the parks and they barbequed on the beaches. They snacked their way from Monterey to southern San Diego.

Once the sun was set they'd dive the cliffs along the coast; they'd surf the still-warm water till it cooled. They always got invited to the most exclusive parties, and they didn't always leave their hosts for dead.

A summer of sea, sand, sex - and suddenly they were bored. A pair of ADHD vamps on the hunt for a fun new game.



"Thirty six!"


"Thirty s...seven."


"Thirty - unh - eight."


"Thirty nine!"


"Aaaaaaaah! Forty."

Xander shivered slightly as Spike ran cool, soothing palms over the tingling skin of his cushion-raised buttocks then tweaked his leather-bound cock.

"So, luv, what do you think about your new rosewood paddle? It certainly makes a bloody lovely noise against your arse."

"It's... Gods, Spike, it's amazing! I don't think I could move if the bed caught fire, it's that good."

"Yeah? Must be the holes. I've never seen them mixed like that before. Now shift and let your Sire have a turn."

Never Be Free

Willow tried not to hear the small dark voice inside her head; the one that told her Xander was the luckiest of them all. It told her he was free to be whatever he could be, free of mortal fears and pains and boundaries. Together he and Spike could live forever, and they might, and then the voice would whisper 'so could you'.

The power, the possibility, thrummed like music though her veins, and yet she continued to resist. She knew that Xander wouldn't, couldn't, want to be this soulless thing; she couldn't bear to leave his soul in torment.

Willow cannot soul Xander!

Make her stop!
darkhavensdarkhavens on June 8th, 2005 01:43 am (UTC)
She keeps trying, the wicked little witch, but Spike wont let her succeed, don't you worry. ;)

Well, now....*that's* one way to stop her.

Yeah, I like it.

Like the rosewood paddle, too.
darkhavensdarkhavens on June 8th, 2005 01:42 am (UTC)
Ages ago I did a b!v!X drabble about how Xander earned his 'favourite paddle', and when I came up with the counting off idea for a drabble, I remembered the rosewood paddle. *g*

Willow is a determined little minx. She keeps trying to soul Xander up, even though it's never worked so far. She has to be stopped somehow... ;)

Ms. Cleveririshvampire13 on June 8th, 2005 01:36 am (UTC)

Really good! (But it's "Monterey". Unless you mean Mexico, though that ain't California.)

Thanks! I copied it wrong off the map. ::runs to edit::

Oh! Lovely, just lovely. All three are great but that first one just sounded so much fun!
darkhavensdarkhavens on June 8th, 2005 02:53 am (UTC)

Spike spoils that boy rotten, he really does. *g*

pft, she can *try*...

lovely set baby ::smooch::

::is in a happy place 'cause of the paddle::
darkhavens: smoochdarkhavens on June 8th, 2005 02:54 am (UTC)
Oh, she keeps trying!

And I know how much you love Xander's favourite rosewood paddle. Almost as much as he does! *g*

Thanks, babe.

Something about surfing vampires just makes me giggle. :)
darkhavens: x smile [savour]darkhavens on June 8th, 2005 02:53 am (UTC)
Me too!

Xander's a SoCal boy who got an extra smack of the clumsy stick at birth. I reckon he spent years watching the surfer dudes and wishing he could have a go, so now... *g*

I really like the first drabble. Reminds me of the Lost Boys. But the second drabble did have its perks. ;p I like your banner, its very well made. Are Spike and Xander really kissing in the little pics? Are those manipulations?

From Open_On_Sunday
darkhavens: sx kiss w hand [me]darkhavens on June 8th, 2005 02:59 am (UTC)
Thank you, for the compliments to the drabbles and to the banner. All my own work. :D

And yes, they really did kiss. You can find the vid clip(s) here. They're taken from some dailies that were dropped into circulation a while ago, and it made every fangirl's heart skip a beat. *g*

Gah. Very nice. Especially the middle one. It's so casual, but very hot. ^_^

Noooo! *runs after Willow, chasing her away* However, I like the way her mind's slowly turning over the possibility of how much freedom Xander has. That she could have. *grins*

darkhavens: sx MMM [literati]darkhavens on June 8th, 2005 03:02 am (UTC)
Hot 'n' casual, that's my boys. *g*

Willow is trying not to give in to the dark side (again). That little voice is telling her that with all her power she could make herself immortal and be more than Xander, but she's fighting it because she wants to do what's right. Silly girl.
tabaquitabaqui on June 8th, 2005 02:57 am (UTC)
SoCal vamps - love it.
And kink.

And Willow - ack!
*and you KNOW she thinks about it*
darkhavens: s mine w claws [literati]darkhavens on June 8th, 2005 03:05 am (UTC)
There's always kink. *g*

And yes, Willow thinks about it, every day. That ol' black magic is trying to get her in its spell again. It keeps whispering how more she could accomplish if she used the power on herself, became immortal, even stronger than Xander...

Of course, she doesn't give in, just keeps trying to stick his soul back on.

She must be stopped. ;)

such yumminess! The solcal vamps, tee-hee, I'm trying to picture Spike surfing without getting his hair wet...He is just as paranoid about his hair as Angel, just doesn't bitch outloud about it as much.

And the spanking---woot! *Fans self. Sees hand going up and down. Pictures it spanking Xander. So not helping.*

And Willow---grrr. Yeah, Willow wants to do what's right...what's 'right' for Willow. Shake her til her teeth rattle...that's the ticket...

Ooh, and thanks for the heads up on the daily footage. I now have screen caps!
darkhavensdarkhavens on June 10th, 2005 04:14 am (UTC)
Hee! Thanks, and you're welcome!

That kiss needs to be seen by every fan and proto-fan. It's the Holy Grail of Spander! *g*
werewindlewerewindle on June 8th, 2005 05:55 am (UTC)
Greatness as always. ^__^

I love the paddle and the little voice in Willow's head. More!
darkhavens: lick [me]darkhavens on June 10th, 2005 04:15 am (UTC)
Thanks. :D

Xander loves his rosewood paddle. *g*
kat8cha on June 8th, 2005 01:01 pm (UTC)
Okay, Willow? Is starting to get on my nerves. But only bc she wants to ruin the boys fun. Liked the Summer Fun!
darkhavens: can't be arsed [truly_tazi]darkhavens on June 10th, 2005 04:17 am (UTC)

Willow needs to be dealt with. I just need the right challenge and the right spark of genius. ;)
most excellently twisted: California Dreamingfanbot on June 8th, 2005 03:54 pm (UTC)
Pale surfer dudes! Yay!

A spanking! A spanking! And after the spanking, the oral sex!

Bad, naughty, wicked, Willow!
darkhavens: restrained [me]darkhavens on June 10th, 2005 04:20 am (UTC)
Hee! :D

Willow is wicked and needs to be stopped. ;)
Annwildannuette on June 8th, 2005 07:10 pm (UTC)
Oh spanking, kinky *grins* spike/xander spanking thats so much hotter.

Willow should give i and stop trying to beat them, she can so not soul Xander lol
darkhavens: s grr? [literati]darkhavens on June 10th, 2005 04:21 am (UTC)
Xander does seem to enjoy getting his bottom paddled - but so does Spike. And Willow wont stop until she is stopped. ;)
Sharvie_sharvie_ on June 8th, 2005 09:28 pm (UTC)
Combining the easy breezy summer days of the boys with the heart wrenching sadness of Willow is so good! Love it!
darkhavens: lick [me]darkhavens on June 10th, 2005 04:26 am (UTC)
Thanks! I wanted three completely different moods in the drabbles. I'm glad that came through. And Willow is sad - she's driving herself insane trying to 'help' someone who doesn't want or need her help. Silly girl.
