Author: darkhavens
Title: A Dru-some Lullaby
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Rating: R for one little word... maybe two ;)
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No harm, no foul, no money made.

A Dru-some Lullaby

Hush little Xander, don't you fret
Spike says that you will be his only get

And if you think his word's not true
Spike's gonna beat you till you're black and blue

And if that beating makes you bleed
Spike will fetch you people upon which to feed

And if those people don't taste good
Spike will give you just a drop of Sire's blood

And if that Sire's blood makes you hard
Spike will fuck you senseless till your vision's marred

And if that sex doesn't make you trust
Spike will keep on trying till he turns to dust.

Oh, sweetie! I could just see Dru swirling around in a lace dress as she sang. Maybe puncuating it with scratches and slaps.
Love it!

It was meant to be a Dru-centric drabble with just a couple of couplets of twisted lullaby, but the song took over and mutated and came out at 100 words. :D

Very Dru - I like this. I can just hear it now - she always sounds soothing until you listen to what she's saying. :-)

Thanks! She's wonderfully creepy.

I just adore Dru, she sings pretty songs about pretty boys...
darkhavens: dru [literati]darkhavens on August 17th, 2005 01:46 am (UTC)
Thanks! She does seem to sing quite often in my drabbles. Creepy. *g*

You went to add me on YIM the other day and I don't know whether or not I clicked the right button - I sneezed as I clicked and the box disappeared and I had absolutely no memory of what your YIM name was or if I'd just completely blanked you. So, if I did blank you? I didn't mean to. *g*

Oh... my... wow. Would it be pc to wonder how long it took you? Becaue... wow...
darkhavens: dru [literati]darkhavens on August 17th, 2005 01:23 am (UTC)

And... It took me 43 minutes in total, but that was starting with an open Word doc and no clue about what to write. I googled lullabies and then spent about 10 minutes singing them to myself until I hit 'Hush Little Baby' and got the idea to have Dru singing to Xander. And then I ended up doing the whole lullaby instead of just tweaking a couple of couplets and writing a drabble around them. :D

:giggle: :snort: Oh, this...this I love. I adore Dru (wrote 'Dur' the first time around...sounds less than intelligent..."I adore Durrrrrrrr") and this is just spiffy!
darkhavens: dru [literati]darkhavens on August 17th, 2005 01:52 am (UTC)
Hee! Thanks!

Dru is so much fun to play with. :D

Thank you! It was fun to write - I had to keep singing to make sure it scanned. *g*

I can see Dru twirling around in lazy circles, in a layered white, victorian dress...singing this just under her breath.....smiling that wicked smile of hers...all the while preening for Spikes Dark Kitten.

Beautiful visual Sweetie!!

Thanks for sharing!!

Thank you! That's pretty much what I was seeing as I wrote it. :D

will you run away with me and be my personal fic-writer-slave?

this is (insert appropriately hyperbolic adjective here - I can't find one good enough)
darkhavensdarkhavens on August 22nd, 2005 07:28 pm (UTC)

It all depends where we'd be running to and who has to carry all my stuff. ;)

Fantastic. Very clever. Particularly liked the bit about the vision becoming marred. :)

Thanks. :D

I figure sex with Spike would make anyone's eyes cross *g*
