This wee, belated Xander/Anya drabble is for [ profile] amory_vain in the Fall Fandom Free-For-All. Beware the angst. Angst and woe!

Also, Happy Thanksgiving! :)

The Game of Life
Anya, post-"Hell's Bells"

In a jewelry box on her dresser Anya keeps a small blue plastic geometric person. Blue: the person to ride next to her in the small plastic car, to make small pink and blue geometric babies with, to retire at Millionaire Estates with (or to Countryside Acres, because better there with Xander than anywhere else alone, even with money).

The blue person always gets in the car, she notes. Never jumps out again, either. That's why the game isn't actually life, whatever the name.

She returns the plastic person to the rings and clutter, fingers D’Hoffryn’s token, and begins to chant.

Poor Anya. This is clever and wistful (and makes me want to slap Xander a little bit. :P).

Yes, it was [ profile] gabrielleabelle with the poll. I agree with you; I had so much difficulty with Xander's actions from "Hell's Bells" and then after.

'Cuz in the Buffyverse, the world's always about to end, but personal relationships are important.

That is so well said that I will merely quote it and marvel at its perfection. *g*
