Liquids Drabbles For open_on_sunday 12/12/04 - #4-6

This week our challenge is suggested by zilly14 and it's Liquids. Take that and run with it any way you like (drinks, tears, blood, water, whatever your imagination says!)

Cross posted to open_on_sunday and my regular journal.

BtVS – Post Chosen - Buffy

Heart Of The Ocean

It’s Buffy’s first flight out of the country and she’s managed to snag the window seat. Of course, that means listening to Dawn bitch for the first two hours, but she’s sleeping now, and the view of the ocean is just mesmerizing.

Beautiful shades of blue peeking through the clouds seem to call to her. After the flames in the Hellmouth the ocean looks so cool and inviting. Buffy has to stifle a sob as she remembers Spike’s last few moments – a true blaze of glory. She can only hope he’s at rest, finally.

She closes the shade, and weeps.

BtVS – Season 5 – Post The Gift – Spike, Dawn

A Glass of Whine

Everyone has gone home, leaving Dawn alone with Spike. Not before Xander gets in another ‘Fangless’ crack and Willow threatens to turn him into a toad if he so much as thinks an evil thought, however.

Dawn slams the door shut and wishes she could get drunk like Spike to block out all her pain and sorrow. She must have spoken aloud, since her vampire babysitter is offering her a half glass of wine.

She sips the ruby red liquid quickly thinking it’ll be similar to grape juice, and is immediately disabused of that notion. It’s sour and it burns.

BtVS – Based on my fic: “What Dreams May Bring” – Spike/Buffy

Whatever Gets You Going

Ever since regaining his humanity, Spike lives the cliché: he’s just not worth a damn before his first cup of coffee. They make a habit of sharing a cup before the children awaken; some alone time to be cherished as the caffeine works it’s magic in ways Spike hasn’t had to think of for many years.

He savors the taste as he swallows the strong brew black and piping hot. They don’t read the paper at the table. That’s just a bit too Ozzie and Harriet for Spike. But he certainly enjoys the pleasure on Buffy’s face as she sips.

Hi *big wave*...sorry...bouncing off the walls right now...just wanted to let you know that I read your fics Crazy Eights (again!) and Hell is in the details for VK...and damn, everything about an anchored soul for Angel was so believable...I can so see him being a prick like in real life. Please update The Body and Crazy Eights soon...It was great to get to read you again!

Also hope you like the first installment of the collab tonight with Schehrezade...that would be why I am bouncing...I think I am more excited about posting this than I have been about my other fics!

More stuff to come.

Love all of your shorts and it just proves you don't have to have many pages to have a great story.
