Title: Spander in Verse, a Collection
Fandom: Pairing: Buffy: Spike/Xander
Rating: From G to R
Concrit: Please. If you spot a typo or a grammar glitch, feel free to tell me in comments.
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No harm, no foul, no money made.
Warnings/Squicks: Iambic pentameter; Xander gets vamped a time or two in verse.
Notes: A couple of weeks ago, I got bit by a poetry bug. It wasn't a bunny - there was no plotiness involved (originally) - it was just an irresistible urge to write Spander poetry in as many forms as possible. So I did. I even went to Wikipedia and found new forms of poetry to play with. Written for [livejournal.com profile] spring_with_xan.

These are the results.

Seven Japanese Poetry Forms and a Limerick )

'Sacrifice', a Sonnet )

'My Spike, in the Key of Dru', a Villanelle )

'A Need: Love Infinite', a Sestina )

No drabble fic this week, just a poem. But who is the 'author'. Is it Xander about Spike or Spike about Xander?

My Love

I lie beside you as you sleep,
and wonder if I'll ever be enough
to stop those ancient nightmares
as they creep
amongst the sweeter dreams you often tell me
over coffee, eggs and blood.
I know we are a most unlikely pair
the misfit and the monster
but we work
...somehow.
It started out as comfort,
mutual drunks and shared self pity,
but it changed
so slow we hardly even noticed
...till we kissed.
And then we played avoidance games
for weeks and weeks.
But now I lie here waiting for the man I love to rise.
My love...

A Spandercentric Sonnet for Willa,
in celebration of 100 Slashed Sonnets.

First came that giant bed which would sleep five,
Spike, Xander, Angel, Doyle, and Wes, at last.
And then the cosy!baby!verse went live,
And Katie, Spike's dead heart did own right fast.
The dreams came next, and they did cause such fright,
Then next the split!verse; Xander's love so false.
And finally the pierced!verse, so right;
Where Xander and his Spike both have a pulse.
A hundred down and fifty four to go,
For once I wish that Shakespeare had writ more.
What will we read when done, I do not know,
These sonnets will be missed and that's for sure.
Please, Willa, darling, don't forget to write.
A thousand crying fans is such a sight.


::waves to [livejournal.com profile] ponders_life:: See, I did it!

Vampire wants to play
Human is oblivious
Spike jumps on Xander

Evil evil evil woman!

Can you believe it? I set a damn bunny on myself! That'll teach me to think before I post. Don't let me do it again, 'k?

So, here it is, cos I wondered if it could be done: a 50 word drabble...

Fingertips, as light as feathers
Trace old patterns on cold skin
Slowly build up lust and hunger
Slowly transfer heat as well
Pinch and tickle, stroke and pet
Suddenly all’s heat and wet
Have a nibble, give a lick
Lube and stretch and in there quick
Blood. Come.
Screams. Done.

Apparently whisky makes me poetic.
::glares suspiciously at glass::
Or maybe it's the banana liqueur 'mixer'. #op

So, after I posted the first drabble in my journal, [livejournal.com profile] vampirefever responds with "This was really nice, wonder what the ode said...".

Can you see the bloody great bunny that got dumped in my lap? can you? I'm trying to think drabbles, and half my brain is trying to write an ode, in a William-like fashion, but filtered through over a hundred years experience of love and other stuff.

This is what happened...

An Ode, To Xander )
