Hair Drabbles For open_on_sunday 01/02/05 - #2-3

Two more drabbles for this week's subject of HAIR

Cross posted to open_on_sunday and my regular journal.

BtVS – Season 5 – Joyce, Dawn

A Brush With Fate

Joyce runs the hairbrush through the sable tresses of her youngest daughter, knowing that a few weeks ago Buffy was an only child. It doesn’t make Dawn any less precious in her eyes. If anything, she values her all the more for it. She might have been entrusted to the Slayer’s care but she was given to a mother to love.
Dawn is snippy, querulous; in other words, the perfect daughter and sister.

Wrapping the strands around each other, forming a braid, Joyce thinks it’s a metaphor for their family. Three individual portions forming one plait – stronger for it’s unity.

AtS – Season 2 – Post There's No Place Like Plrtz Glrb - Angel


Everything Angel could possibly need to accomplish his task is laid out on the table before him. Hair gels, combs, scissors… even a shaver should he decide to go that way. The key element is a Polaroid camera. Being a vampire has its disadvantages when trying to style your hair, and no reflection is a biggie.

He zhooshes, flattens, parts and blows; taking a picture after every effort, each shot worse than the last.
Giving up, he runs his fingers through his hair in frustration.

“Great new do, Angel,” Cordelia cracks. The salary sucks, but entertainment is over the top.

I love the braid metaphor for that little family.

And I always thought Polaroids would work for vamps.

So pleased you liked the drabbles. And I think, given what we know of Jossverse vamps anyway... anything that isn't an SLR camera will work - it's the mirror that's the problem... digital cameras probably work as well.

The first one was very sweet and lovely. The second one brought on more giggles. Angel and his hair...always good for a laugh. :D
