'Lifeless', four for open_on_sunday challenge #121 Inanimate Objects
Author: darkhavens
Title: Lifeless
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Rating: 18+
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No harm, no foul, no money made.
AN1: These are again based in the baby!vamp!Xander 'verse but all you need to know is that Spike turned Xander and they're happily enjoying unlife as sex-crazed demons.
AN2: The link above actually goes to my b!v!x tag page, where all the relevant drabbles are presented as sequential posts in my journal, as the memory function seems to have permanent hiccups.

Retirement Day

He watches as she valiantly tries to defeat the Aurelius demons - she has others but he knows she relies on him at times like this.

She's fighting not one, not two, but three of the men who lived within her heart, and the pain she's feeling has to be intense. Yet all he can do is wait, and watch his second slayer die - at the hands, the fists, the fangs of the same clan who took the first.

Somehow he doubts he'll ever fit the grip of another Chosen to be the one in all the world.

Mr Pointy has retired.

China Doll

Wild hair. Tangled limbs. Dreams of sharing the magic in their veins, in their eyes.

Dru twirls, picturing her childe-to-be - the two of them as pretty as a pair of china dolls.

She wants to hurt the Kitten.

Dru stops dancing.

She wants to hurt the Kitten. Just like she hurt Daddy.

Words she's heard, from Daddy, from Spike, and even from his Kitten, but now Miss Edith's said them they make sense.

Suddenly the little tree seems gnarled and black with spite. Poisonous berries hidden amongst the leaves.

Now Dru wants to share a very different kind of bite.

The Luckiest Zippo

All things considered, it's a pretty good life - as much fuel as he can drink, he's never dry. A new wick every month or so, whether he needs it or not - the tiniest hint of fraying and it's gone.

The blood? Well, okay, that took some getting used to. But after the first few years he hardly noticed. It wasn't like he was swimming in it, it was always wiped off quick - maybe a bit of a polish on a denim-covered thigh.

And now he's shared between them he's better loved than ever.

He's got it sweet.

The Short Sad Life of a Pyrex Dildo

Sex games are all very well in moderation, but apparently vampires don't know when to stop. A month ago he was flawless, not a bubble to his name, not a crack, a chip, a speck to mar his beauty and his shine.

But during that one month he's been put to work intensively - he's visited bowls of almost-boiling water, and of ice - most worryingly, both within the hour.

He's been sat on, ridden, spanked and quite horribly abused. He can feel the minute stress fractures encroaching by the second. He knows, despite his lifetime guarantee, he'll never last the year.

Poor little dildo.

Amazing set babe!

Thanks, darlin'! I don't think I've written a set that soon after the challenge for months!

I'm so happy Miss Edith finally told Dru the awful truth!

The rest just made me smile. Lots.

::hugs you::
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on July 18th, 2005 12:55 am (UTC)
Thanks. :D

Miss Edith was the first one to come to mind. She's an inanimate object with an established 'voice' and I couldn't resist.

Love these! The Dru/Willow drabbles especially have me quite intrigued.
darkhavens: dru [literati]darkhavens on July 18th, 2005 12:57 am (UTC)
Thanks! They have me quite intrigued too. I just don't do femmeslash, and yet Dru wouldn't leave Willow alone. Odd.
tabaquitabaqui on July 18th, 2005 12:46 am (UTC)
Ooh, all all good!
Love two and three the MOST - just lovely!
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on July 18th, 2005 01:01 am (UTC)
Thanks. :D

I had to do Miss Edith, she's canon - an inanimate object with a 'voice'. And the lighter just seemed like a fun thing to write.

Wow, these were very, very fine! Love your imagery -- and even though s/x isn't my dream pairing, I'm now dying to check out your 'verse.
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on July 18th, 2005 01:20 am (UTC)
Thank you!

You're quite welcome to check out the baby!vamp!Xander verse - it's not written in a linear style, as I only write it in response to drabble challenges at open_on_sunday and slashthedrabble, but I've still managed to accrue about 150 drabbles since... February, I think.

One day I mean to go through and reorder them into some kind of timeline, mainly so I can see what gaps need to be filled in. It's a fun 'verse to play in. The boys are madly in love and, well, mad. *g*
Nevnevcolleil on July 18th, 2005 02:17 am (UTC)
I love all these :D You give Mr. Pointy such dignity ;P But the last 2 drabbles here are my favorite. Which is odd, I suppose, becasue I don't read S/X, generally. I just couldn't resist the title on that last one :D And the drabble that goes with is too funny. Great job!
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on July 18th, 2005 02:34 am (UTC)
Thanks! I love luring in the non-Spander folk. *g*

Those boys are so hard on their sex toys. ;)

Poor little dildo!


Bradley did not appreciate the kill Willow one. Oh well!

darkhavens: dru [literati]darkhavens on July 18th, 2005 02:32 am (UTC)
Silly man. He has all these women writing Dru/Willow for him and he just doesn't appreciate it. *g*

Thanks, sweetie! *smooch*

I loved China doll! Take that little tree. The lighter was cute and the last had me giggling. ^__^
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on July 19th, 2005 07:11 pm (UTC)
That little tree needs a damn good pruning if you ask me. ;)

And I wrote the lighter cos I remember how I used to look after my Zippo when I smoked and I'm sure Spike would do the same. *g*
taruma: LOL! Spiketaruma16 on July 18th, 2005 11:07 am (UTC)
They're all great!!
But I so love the last two!!! So damn funny!!!
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on July 19th, 2005 07:12 pm (UTC)
I couldn't resist the dildo (and that sounds so wrong...) - they have such fun with their toys but they must be hard on them. *g*

Poor Buf indeed. She never stood a chance against the three of them but she put up a good fight, even after she lost Mr Pointy. ;)

*revives you to make you write more Hellraising badness*

Thankee, sweetie! :D
rayne_y_dazerayne_y_daze on July 19th, 2005 06:13 am (UTC)
Okay, these are great, but I loooooooove the Zippo drabble. Very nice, indeed!
darkhavensdarkhavens on July 19th, 2005 07:15 pm (UTC)
Thanks. :D

I had a Zippo when I smoked and I treasured it and pampered it like crazy. It never failed me, even in gale force winds. I know Spike would appreciate dedication like that. ;)
sunnyd_litesunnyd_lite on July 19th, 2005 07:17 pm (UTC)
Loved the Zippo. Spike's luv's bitch and would definitely care for it! Glad it got used to the blood though!

And the last one? What naughty fun!
darkhavens: sx a love eternal [literati]darkhavens on July 26th, 2005 05:31 am (UTC)
Thanks! It was disturbingly easy to put myself into the mindset of mindless objects. And fun too! *g*
