TITLE: Serenity (#1 of a series)
AUTHOR: kerk hiraeth
FANDOM: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (S5/6 AU; set in the femalehusband!verse)
CHARACTERS: Faith Lehane;
A/N: I ~ No idea where this series is going; which characters will feature, or even if they will be in the same 'verse; fandom, or connected in any way, other than the one which will become very clear. Oh, and kudos points to the geek who spots the British Classic Comedy Series reference.
: II ~ This is set some time after Tara starts visiting Faith in jail. The fics that start telling that story are stubbornly refusing to reveal themselves as yet but, when I started on this, it quickly became clear where Faith was; probably who inspired her to read the book implied within. Why Tara visited, and what transpires, will have to wait, but this is set in that 'verse where; if you follow it at all, they will eventually marry.
Faith out of boredom, but she knew why Tara had mentioned it; she wasn't stupid.
What she sought was as hard to find as this dude.
They seek her here; they seek her there.
Last thing at night
The look of surprise on his face.
The look of terror on his.
The inexplicable determination on his face.
The hate on hers.
The invisible tears in Tara's soul; hidden behind the smile.
She imagined she could see the one she'd ripped.
They all stared back at her in the washroom.
“I hate you!”
Scarlet pimple was easier to find.
Goddess watch over us in these dark times,
