La la la.
Spike/Xander. 300 words. PG-13, or whatever we're saying now to keep the MPAA from suing us.


Xander's palm slide-skitters down Spike's back. Over the dip and swell and down to the curve of his ass, then stops. One hand, flat against his skin. No other touch on his body but the soft, worn sheets below him, the slight pressure against his right hipbone where Xander's weight next to him makes the saggy mattress tilt a bit. Next to him, but not touching, except for that one hand. Fingers splayed, not pressing, not moving, just... there.

Just there, each finger, curve, hell, each work-pressed wrinkle, traceable in Spike's head, behind his pillow-shuttered eyes. The old, ridged scar below the thumb from a Fellbeast's horn, and the fresh new jagged cat-scratch cut across it, from the battle of the ear-mite drops. The Siamese tail-kink of the middle finger, where last year's broken knuckle never did heal right.

And skin. Skin, flesh, warm around the edges of the scars and lines and bumps, against Spike's skin. A burn too hot for just the touch of a human hand, even against his ten shades cooler ass. But there's that shape in his mind of Xander's hand on his skin, searing its way in. Like he's red there beneath it, like it's leaving a mark, like that hand's fallen hard with a smack that he'd relish but doesn't need, not tonight, because this is enough.

Enough, the shape, the touch, the heat, that Spike's sure somehow as he drifts off, that it'll still be there tomorrow. The next day. Fifty years from now. The brand on his ass that says plain as day for any who get lucky enough to read: property of Xander Harris and don't you forget it. Fingerprints and all. He ever gets lost, and he won't, they'll know who to ship him back to, that's for sure.

mmm, shivery good. happy, happy now.

(damn, it's the end of the semester and i've lost all coherence.)

Thank you!

Hey, at least you have an excuse; I haven't had an end-of-semester since 1998, and I'm still not coherent.


2005-04-12 07:32 pm (UTC) (Link)

Mmmmmm, lovely and warm. And of course Spike remembers the old-fashioned Siamese with their tail kink.


2005-04-13 03:32 pm (UTC) (Link)

Thank you!

Our Siamese (who was a stray and very likely a crossbreed) didn't have the tail-kink, but my early years of "Let's read every book about kitties we can find" lodged the information permanently in my head.

Oh... so beautiful! Loved the idea and the way you focused in on that single touch.


2005-04-13 03:35 pm (UTC) (Link)

Thankee! (This is in fact my sneaky way of writing a spanking fic that's not a spanking fic. *g*)

Once I was not looing for anything in particular, and I found a perfect agate, translucent grey with faint opaque white banding, polished by the ocean and the sand... this is very much that kind of thing.

Julia, quietly wow

Thank you so much. That's a beautiful compliment.

Amy, also quietly wow.

*contented sigh* If you scratched behind my ears right now I think I'd purr. Wonderful, simply wonderful.

Ooooooh, perfect. Love, love, LOVE the details of Xander's hand and how Spike feels and KNOWS every single bit of it. It's just so intimate and PERFECT.

*cuddles up on your lap and purrs*

*skritches under your chin*


2005-04-12 10:14 pm (UTC) (Link)

I have to second all the purrs.

Surrounded by cat noises -- it's just like being at home!

Uh, not that I would ever answer comments from some other place besides home.

Thank you!

I can feel it....


2005-04-13 03:41 pm (UTC) (Link)

Xander's hand on your ass? *g*
