Notes: Two last minute contributions, set in the world of baby!vamp!Xander.


On the very first Father's Day after he'd been turned, Xander brought his Sire breakfast in bed. After they had fed and fucked beside the cooling corpse, he offered his throat in beautiful submission.

"You've done more for me in the last few months than he ever did. Every day you show me just how much I mean to you - you teach me and don't get angry if I don't learn stuff straight away, you give me things 'cause you know they'll make me smile. You're my father, my brother, my lover and my mate. Thank you, Spike."

"Soppy git. C'mere."


Once the spell was complete and Angelus was back in control of his body once more, this time for good, Spike and Xander set about unchaining his limbs and letting down the exsanguinated Slayer that hung limply from the beam above him. They listened with half an ear as Dru carried the new host of Angel's soul over to the table so she could finish the ritual.

"Daddy's back, Daddy's back,
The nasty soul is in the cat.
Twist it, turn it,
Flay the cat to make a sack.
Bind it, burn it,
The filthy spark will ne'er come back..."

First, soppy git!Xander? Always a treat. I can just see the look on Spike's face when Xander's telling him all this.

THAT'S why she wanted the cat! *whimpers* Poor kitty...

LOL! Of course Xander's a soppy git - look who he has for a Sire! *g*

And yes, the cat was an integral part of the spell - gotta put that pesky soul somewhwere while Dru prepares to get rid of it for good. ;)

Love Dru and the cat.

When I wrote that list of ingredients ages ago, I honestly didn't know what was going to happen to the cat. I even considered Dru just wanting one because Spike has his Kitten and Xander has Seven, but then she explained exactly what she wanted the poor moggy for... ;)

Ha! finally we see the rest of how they got rid of the nasty soul!

Loved the first one - sweet. ^__^

Yes! The poor cat... Hee!

Thankee. :D

Very interested in reading all that you have written in the Baby Vamp Xanderverse. Do you have the individual chapters listed in order somewhere?

darkhavensdarkhavens on June 25th, 2005 01:26 am (UTC)
I intend to go through all the drabbles and organise them into a proper timeline sometime soon, but right now they're pretty much just a scramble. You can read them in my memories under My baby!vamp!xander (or you can click the b!v!x tag and see them that way), but they're more like a jigsaw puzzle right now - read each set and slot the individual drabbles into place as you go.

As soon as I do organise them into proper order I'll definitely be posting it to my journal so that everyone can see what's gone on so far.

Thanks. :D

Oh wow, what happened to Faith? She's dead but has Angel's soul? Are they going to vamp her? Wow!

And the emotional Xander telling Spike just how he feels about what Spike's done for him, that was so wonderful and sweet, even with the cooling corpse.

Remember ages ago Dru gave the boys a shopping list so she could bring Daddy back?

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

Well, the heart (or the heart's blood) was needed in the spell to release the soul - which was then trapped in the cat, and destroyed.

What can I say? I'm evil. *g*

Xander is a true romantic. ;)

Both great. *Adored* the first one. ~sigh~ I think i might be a soppy git, too.
darkhavensdarkhavens on June 25th, 2005 01:32 am (UTC)
Xander and Spike make soppy gits of us all.*g*

Thank you sweetie! *smooch*

Nutty Dru - sounds like a chocolate bar. *g*

I knew Dru could do it! She's a very smart crazy lady, ::BG::

The first one was just sweet, cooling corpse and all.
darkhavensdarkhavens on June 25th, 2005 01:34 am (UTC)
Dru was determined to bring her Daddy back, and Miss Edith helped. *g*

OMG, how can the first one be so creepy and yet at the same time soppy? But it is!
