  Penultimate drabble, for now. Just over an hour to finish that last one. 
  Liking the busy writer feeling. 

  TITLE: Trust Being the Key

  AUTHOR: kerkevik_2014

  FANDOM: Buffy the Vampire Slayer,

  CHARACTERS: Lisa and her Dad,

  LENGTH: 100,

  SUMMARY: When do you start trusting your kids to be what you hope you've brought them up to be? That is the question. Lisa's spent virtually her entire life, with only one role model; though her dad would say she had two. Now its time to start letting her be her own role model.

  A/N: Like I said; going backwards. Timey-wimey as the man said.

 

     “England? I can't go?

   “Didn't figure you for missing school?” Lisa shrugged, as if to say, 'Can't blame me for asking.'

   Her dad grinned, “Only going a week anyway. I'll miss your birthday, but you're mature enough to be left on your own.

   She blushed when his tone made her glance up.

   He knew exactly who she'd be inviting over for her birthday.

   And what they'd likely be doing.

   “I'm your old man, but don't think I've forgotten what being a teenager in love is like.

   She felt tears well up; knowing her was seeing her mom as he spoke.

   Only got four more to go before I have to get off my ass and compose some more of these fics; even some for outside Dawn and Lisa's world. Hope you've enjoyed reading these elisi , there are more to come. 

 

  TITLE: Reflecting the Shadows of a Mother's Love

  AUTHOR: kerkevik_2014

  FANDOM: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

  CHARACTERS: Lisa; Dawn; Lisa's Dad;

  LENGTH: 100,

  SUMMARY: Lisa reflections as Dawn approaches for her answer to a vital piece of news.

  A/N: Extensive re-write on this one, as I realised I'd basically written the same story twice; one hundred words in both cases; this one, ironically reading better than the original of the other I'd already finished. This might prove interesting as a discussion topic at a later date.

 

     “It doesn't matter how old she really is. You're feelings are just as real.

   Lisa watched Dawn crossing the Quad from the Science building; Butterflies the size of Mothra doing manouvres in her stomach.

   “I can't protect you forever; your Mother taught me that.

   She started counting down from a hundred; simultaneously reciting the lyrics to Lucretia, My Reflection; they're song, as well as listing the periodic table – in reverse.

   She was nervous. 

    Her dad had just nodded; tears in his eyes, after she asked about her Mom.

   “She cares about you, Lisa. Deeply.

   So neither needed to add a word.

  So dear elisi,  I believe I have a working title for all these drabbles. At this moment in time; since it became blindingly obvious that so many of these titles involved shadows, it shall be known as the Shadows series. Of course this may develop, but it will certainly do for now. I shall also need some thought on why, and whether Tara should, be passing Dawn's secret on. My muse is telling me that it comes from something in Tara's past, or psyche; further thought is needed though. 
 

   TITLE: Shadows and Reflections

   AUTHOR: kerkevik_2014

   FANDOM: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

  CHARACTERS: Lisa's Dad; Tara;

   SUMMARY: Right, or wrong; parent or no, sometimes difficult choices have to be made.

   A/N: Tara's been in some dark places; had to make some hard choices to survive. Easier for her to make them where the lives of others are involved.

 

     Queueing, he contemplated what Tara Maclay had told him; eyes closed he tried not to worry, also wondering about getting a pastry.

   “Can't protect them forever.” He jumped.

   “S-sorry, what did,

   “I have to pee; couldn't get me a green tea?

   Shaking, he nodded. Watching her make her way to the toilets he wondered if she was British, like his wife had been; when he met her.

   Which led his thoughts back to his daughter, and the news that the girl she was in love with; no way he was about to fool himself there, was only a few months; possibly weeks old.

  Nearly allowed myself to get distracted again. 

  Before I get too much further, by which beyond the seventeen of these I have done so far; this is only the ninth to get posted, I must get these listed somewhere in their chronological order. Got Floodland playing again; my head-canon says this is Lisa's fave album (she has it on vinyl - and CD & MP3 & every other platform available; depending on whenever a story is set). 

 There's potential in how boyband loving Dawn & 80's goth (and probably in 2016 Afropunk loving Lisa) mesh their musical tastes; though I imagine a joint love of 80s music will help, 

 Ack! Plot bunnies go'WAY! 

Anyway more Lisa and her Dad (plot bunnies where are their names?) 

 

   TITLE: Love's Shadow

   AUTHOR: kerkevik_2014

   FANDOM: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

   CHARACTERS: Lisa; her Dad & Dawn (in abstentia;

   LENGTH: 100,

   SUMMARY: Lisa in the know now... the aftermath begins.

   A/N: This girl who was in all of one scene; two if you're nitpick-y, is really in my head, so there's more of these to come. I've skipped here; there is another scene to be written – at least.

 

     “I'm not real!

   The visceral pain Lisa felt; deep inside, hearing those words in her head made the hurt she felt when Dawn barely acknowledged her at her Mom's funeral.

   Feel just as sharp really, but a pinprick in comparison.

   Breathless at her absence as she felt, Lisa gathered herself before her Dad came into the kitchen; fought to keep herself together as he seemed to take forever to get his coffee and doughnuts.

   As he prepared his bacon; eggs and toast, she quietly left for school.

 

   She didn't see him sit down, breakfast absent; as he pondered her sadness.

  My apologies to elisi , to whom all these fics; still all drabbles, are dedicated as a birthday present, for the delay in getting back to posting these. Feels ages since I wrote this one; even though one of the more recent ones. It should have been posted the day I posted the previous, with all the others I got ready to go; added amongst others the same day, and that following, but trumpy-whiny, timey-roll-y whatever. 

  Anyway, it's up now (or will be soon) so back on the rocking horse-y... 
 

  TITLE: The Key to Lisa's Shadows.

  AUTHOR: kerkevik_2014

  FANDOM: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

  CHARACTERS: Lisa's Dad; Lisa; Dawn;

  LENGTH: 100,

 SUMMARY: POV of Lisa's Father, on the cusp of Dawn's appearance in the Buffyverse.

 A/N: I was wondering, as I was going through the other stories in this series, how other characters perceived Dawn's appearance in their lives, when she had not been there before; as we know.

 

     She used to be so reluctant to get to School.

   Dragging her feet until he had to drive her.

   He just couldn't recall when.

   Now she was almost out the door before he'd started his breakfast.

   How to figure out the change?

   Deciding on a surprise pizza lunch; he'd been drinking coffee when he saw her laughing.

   Laughing.

   His daughter having actual fun; joking with a young girl he'd not seen before.

   Or been told of.

   She seemed as sad and solitary as Lisa usually was.

   She was growing up.

   He trusted her to tell him when she was ready.

  Third one this morning to be posted; all birthday pressies for elisi; this one was written after I woke up this morning, so definitely more to come, and about a dozen; including the ones already posted written. 

 

  TITLE: The Key for a Father's Love

  AUTHOR: kerkevik_2014 

  FANDOM: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

  CHARACTERS: Lisa's father; Dawn Summers;

  SUMMARY: Dawn thinks she's been so careful...

  A/N: After the Valentine's fic, but early in their dating relationship; Dawn is still learning about her girlfriend's father...

 

     “Not so formal Dawn; not as if this is a date after all, “ grinning wickedly as his offhand remark made her blush.

   Had to keep the pain in check though; so much did it remind him of his wife.

   Even after all this time he could hear Lisa's mother admonishing his evil humor, fresh pangs his just reward.

   He could see so much of them in this girl and his daughter it was hard to remember they were still children. He had to though; hard not to think he could see their future.

   He could only hope Lisa's was happier.
