First, the good things:

A short story, The Haunted Author

A good, uplifting news article on gender equality

Some disturbing but interesting images, Fallen Princesses

Yes, I opted out on the LJ linking thing. Let me know if there's any news on that.


The Art Of Seduction, Giles/Ethan

Suns And Guns, Spike, Wesley

Under The Unblinking Sun, Highlander, Horsemen

And a tiny SV drabble which Tastes Like Old Times, for a nostalgic chat.

The last proper fic I posted before this batch, not including Highlander drabbles and dribbles, was on March 22nd, 2009, it seems. It was Violet Sundown, a Giles/Ethan/Xander pwp.

And now to the depressing, personal stuff. )

Title: Over The Top
Fandom: Buffy
Characters: Spike, some Spike/Buffy (yeah, I know)
Prompt: From [ profile] keerawa: Spike, gratuitous; here
Second half added for Mary

Gratuitous violence, that's what Spike liked on his telly. Blood and gore. Even if it was gruesomely unrealistic - especially if it was gruesomely unrealistic, when he was in the right mood. Heads rolling on the floor with an almost comical sound. Monsters exploding, leaving goo and entrails all over walls and heroes. People beating other people up with sticks for breakfast. Good times. Bad cinema.

But late in the day, after a night of killing and mayhem, he'd curl on the couch or the bed and flip the channels until he'd find something else. He'd watch romantic movies and shows, where the hero took the heroine in his arms and kissed her tenderly, vowing his undying love. Gratuitous emotion, rampantly unrealistic. And all was right in his world.

Life isn't television. He thinks about that often. Life - unlife, at any rate; it's full of violence and blood and gore, which is just great, and also emotion, too much emotion for a dead man. He takes her in his arms and kisses her, and his heart doesn't beat but it feels just the same. The blood doesn't actually pump in his veins, but the reaction is similar. Chest expands, ears thumping, everything in his mind like an orchestra gone mad, higher and higher to a crescendo that shouldn't be there. He wants to die. Or, well...

Gratuitous wallowing in self-involvement, in involvement with *her*, her friends, her mission and her light; it feels all *wrong*. Like he should be sticking to the violence side, to the blood, the gore. Emotion is messier.

Title: The Comforts
Fandom: Buffy post-, Angel
Character: Spike
Drabble: a 100 words

Being a vampire, he couldn't fully appreciate the rich, layered flavours, all the spices manipulating the taste buds. The nutritional value was, of course, lost on him. He could smell it, more than humans could; Spike inhaled the steaming clouds deeply, taking in all the comfort they could offer. He put the spoon back into the bowl, taking soup along with noodles, carrot and chicken, savouring the warmth, the distant echo of the taste. He wondered how much of the medicinal qualities attributed to it were psychological. Seemed to have helped him. It was, after all, good for the soul.

Title: Prima Donnas
Prompt: "Celebrities are able to make demands in their contracts for certain things to be in their dressing rooms. What are your top five demands, and why?"
Warning: lack of serious

Five Highlander:

Kronos demands a slavegirl - they call them "fluffer" these days - and pizza, and a well-decorated throne. He also wants recent issues of medical journals, and a box of matches.

Methos requires beer, and some way to play music - blues and classic rock CDs work fine. A comfortable sofa that fits the highest demands in the field, a high-tech security system, and a good pair of running shoes.

Caspian wants raw snails, throwing knives and "a practice target". He gets disappointed when he's brought a board rather than a person, and his disappointment often leads to him using the bearer of the board as practice target. He also likes to have a full-sized mirror and hair-styling products.

Silas normally wants the room sound-proofed. Rodent-feed and fresh sawdust for his pets, a slavegirl for his penis, and slimfast choco shake.

Duncan wants good wine, a good woman, classical music and a large bed covered in satin. If pressed, his fifth demand would be a hairbrush.

Five Buffy-Angel:

Black candles, red sheets, white cake. A good lighter, and the room must have a sink with running water. Ethan doesn't need much to create much.

An extensive library and a "Do Not Disturb" sign are important to Giles. Other than that, a nice scotch, a pot of tea, and something sweet to eat.

A pack of blood and a pack of smokes, a book of romantic poems, paper and a pen - or feather, indeed. Spike looks tough on the outside, but he doesn't forget his roots.

Lorne wants herbal tea for his voice, massage for his feet, orange juice, sandwiches, and to be left alone before a performance. Secretly, he wants a star on the door.

Lilah lists her demands; a phone, a computer, a desk, a protective circle, and oh, a scarf to hide the wound across her throat.

[ profile] beccaelizabeth said: Google finds about 218 results for "I'm going to die a virgin". And another 42 if you spell it "gonna".


"I'm going to die a virgin."

Andrew says and looks up at the monster, pale. Buffy shrugs, and charges forward. Xander spares a moment to glance at the younger boy, pitying.


"I'm going to die a virgin."

"Xander, you had lots of sex," Spike says, "I smelled it on you."

Xander cowers behind their makeshift barricade. "Yeah, but never with you."


"I'm going to die a virgin."

Giles can only stare, speechless at the audacity.

"Save me from this fate?"

After a moment of sputtering, Giles finds the words. "Ethan, I saved you in that manner many times in the past. And you were no virgin when we met."

"Oh, do give us a break, Rupert. Don't you want to have one last... bang, before we go?"

"We're not going anywhere," Giles mutters, avoiding the issue and the offer.


"I'm going to die a virgin."

"Right now, or in general?"

Connor glares angrily at his father's blondest childe.


Gah, I can have a million more. They're like fun little nuggety bite-sized cookies.

The Q&A )

I should do this one day with completely rare characters that nobody else likes.
sparklebutch: (eternal love: spike/drusilla)
Title: Wax And Wane
Fandom: Buffy
Characters: Spike/Drusilla
Inspiration: Daily Fridge

These breasts... have never seen the light of day, William thinks as the lace garment falls from Drusilla's body, revealing the creamy skin hidden under black and red. The sun has never kissed them, never gave a golden hue to this pale perfection, never gave it a rosy blush. A modern woman wouldn't...

But this vampiress has no shame; she dances to herself, nude like a sea-born goddess in closed, suffocating small rooms, or under the clear night's sky, under the mystical lunar rays. She dances, and he thinks in poetry at the sight of that supple, eternally young skin.

sparklebutch: (indirect sunlight only)
Title: Against The Grain
Fandom: Joss
Pairing: Spike/Angel
Point: Texture

Marshmallows in the hot cocoa, weetabix mixed with his blood. It's for texture, see, not taste. It's to make life just that bit more interesting.

Rough leather gloves cupping him, and coarse ropes; last night's a blur of sensation. Whips cutting into flesh. The burn and tug of the rug under his knees, silk wet with spit in his mouth.

Angel's hand, deceptively soft on his back, smoothing down until it reaches the sheet around his waist, and then pushes it away. Sudden breeze on his arse, cool, might be from the window, or might be Angel's breath. Spike shudders.

[100 words]
sparklebutch: (g/e shipping: only kinky the first time)
Title: Show Must Go On
Sequel to: For Adult Audience Only

Fandom: Buffy
Characters: Dawn, Spike, Buffy, Willow, Xander, Giles/Ethan
