Merry Christmas to [ profile] ladyofthelog, [ profile] green_maia, and [ profile] eilowyn. You are appreciated. :)

Remember, if you'd like a drabble of your very own, drop a comment here.

Gonna See About That - Dawn/Ethan - for [ profile] ladyofthelog
Ethan thinks she’s the kid sister: stupider, more naïve. He thinks she’s scared of magic and of books thicker than her thumb. He thinks she’s righteous like Buffy, that she obeys the law, that the heels and the leather and the streak in her hair and the pin in her brow are a quaint little rebellion she’ll get over soon. He thinks she’ll give it up easy to that smoke-and-whiskey voice, or else – even better - she’ll be skeeved when he suggests it. He thinks he knows what the hell he’s doing.

Dawn’s really looking forward to proving him wrong.


Be Still - Oz - for [ profile] green_maia
It’s quiet in Tibet.

He’s never talked much; doesn’t mean he doesn’t like others to. Words are ambiance and distraction, flavor and food; they’re what he’s quiet about. Meat to chew on; jokes to taste and snicker at, Pop-Rocks on his tongue; pink sugar spun from Willow-babble. He’s social, is Oz.

But outside this tiny village, below snow-tipped peaks, it’s quiet. A goat’s bleat, a woman’s call are barely ripples in the silence. What there is to taste here is water, cold as ice and mountain-pure.

Pure enough, maybe, to wash out the copper-salt tang of blood. He hopes so.


Mature Themes - Buffy/Spike, Dawn - for [ profile] eilowyn (title a play off one of my favorite Calvin&Hobbes strips)

“This is the house, Buffy,” Dawn whispered. “It’s perfect.”

“Mm,” said Buffy, following the realtor.

She’d burned a gym down once.

“Western exposure,” Spike said approvingly of the master bedroom. “Save on dusting.”

She’d blown up a high school.

“No basement,” said Dawn.

“Spent enough time underground,” Spike said.

She’d sunk an entire town.

“There’s a porch,” Spike said softly.

Buffy gave him a wan smile.

Who’d be stupid enough to sell her a house?

Spike’s fingers slipped between hers. “Probably shouldn’t knock this one down, eh?” His smirk wicked, reassuring. Trusting.

Okay, she pledged. This one, she’d let stand.

AHHHHH I LOVE MINE SO MUCH. Your Dawn voice is so perfect, and I love how this sort of teeters on the edge of "Dawn is actually quite naive and being lured in by Ethan" and "Dawn is fucking badass." Skirting that fine line: the best Dawn/Ethan around. *happy sigh*

The prose of your drabble for [ profile] green_maia is gorgeous, and I really like the one for [ profile] eilowyn, too!

Oh, I just adore that last one. Well, all three of them, but particularly the last. “Probably shouldn’t knock this one down, eh?” Love. it.

Also I think you've just turned me into a Dawn/Ethan shipper.

Well, this is the first Dawn/Ethan drabble I've read, see, so it's opened up a world of possibility. And hmm, yes, I think I'd be interested in these other fics, if it's not inconvenient!

Oh, thanks a lot!! Heh, all three, hey. Will definitely be reading! :)

I started on Kindred Spirits after seeing your rec, and just finished. Am blown away!

Now I want more Dawn epics.

Loved them all. I think Dawn and the surprise waiting for Ethan is my fav; although the last one left me smiling...

*nods* I'm not sure I'd consider it a "ship". Hadn't actually thought about it until I read the drabble. But I'm sure Dawn could give him a run for his money, so it's interesting to contemplate.

Oh, thank you so much! I've been having a crappy week and getting something so sweet like this totally made me feel better!

Yay!! These are fabulous. :D

Oh. Oh, I love it. It's so Oz. And I love the idea of words as meat to chew on and silence as water. That's just perfect. This is just beautiful.

Thank you so much!!!

Oh, Oz.

That was really beautiful.

Why are you so perfect? Seriously, why?

All of these are flawless in different ways. Your Dawn is so Dawn, and all of us know that she's one girl you should never underestimate. Your Oz analogies are so beautiful they make me want to cry--I adore your prose because it's very clean but very vivid. And the last one hits my woobie!Buffy kink where she carries around so much baggage but gets to start to heal.

I love that a smirk can be trusting. It so can.

Oz seeking to wash his sins away is very elemental. I'm always excited to see Ethan, and Dawn is a gal who can wield a brow ring with deadly force, I'll bet.

Wonderful job on all of these.

Oz is so lovely, in a melancholy way. Spuffy cuteness is cute (obv.). Dawn is scary. I feel sorry for Ethan already, which is hard to do...

I love the Oz drabble. There just isn't enough good Oz fic, and this one really gets into his head. And in only 100 words! I'm in awe!

Lovely Spuffy in the last one. And I, for one, would like to see Ethan get his just desserts via one very surprising Dawn. Talk about chaos! I can't ship those two but I can see Dawn using him to her own advantage. That would be lovely.
