   TITLE: Casablanca

  AUTHOR: kerkevik_2014

  FANDOM: Buffy the Vampire Slayer;

  CHARACTERS: Buffy Summers; Faith Lehane,

  PAIRING: Buffy/Faith;

  WORD COUNT: 200,

  A/N: This is written for drabbletag6 request @ femslash100 by clarahow . It will also be posted at her comm femslashagenda . It is set in my 22!verse where, at this time, Faith and Buffy have been lovers for some time. There are references here back to Season Three's Graduation Day, Pts I & II .


 

 

     “Faith!

 

     The target of her yell responded exactly as if she was made of the same material as the gravestone she was staring at.

 

     Buffy swept two vamps off their feet with one kick; dusting another before she could she could recover from dodging them.

 

     She yelled again; without getting any more of a response; noticable to her Slayer hearing anyway. Faith might have been a statue.

 

     There was a sob...

 

     and a groan...

 

     Which came from behind her.

 

     The one missing an ear was dusted as he tried to stand; last one fled past Faith into the woods.

 

     “Faith, what..?

 

     Buffy spotted the glistening trails on Faith's face; that what breathing she was doing was automatic, and laboured beyond description.

 

     It wasn't until she got a look at the inscription on the gravestone that she understood. 

 

     Of all the cemetaries in all the world...

 

     Buffy pulled her close and held her as Faith's conscience cracked open the dam and flooded into the open.

 

     She held back her own tears; helped by a deep sense of her own guilt.

 

     How many had died because she couldn't... 

 

     Wrapping her arms around Buffy, Faith finally wept over the Professor she had murdered.

 

 

 

   Goddess watch over us all,

"Faith finally wept over the Professor she had murdered."
I just love repentance fics, and this is a true masterpiece of one indeed! Thank you and congradulations for writing this, as well as the kudos you deserve- I seriously think you should post this in all your accounts- and get accounts in other sites too to post this masterpiece you've written about repentance!
I think this is truly your most beautiful piece yet, and encourage you to post it all over the net! I also invite you to get an account on both AO3 and Fanfiction[dot]netttt (deliberately misspelled) to post this one as well (Casablanca), this is absolutely Gorgeous!
I am delighted with this and think it's Spectacular, mostly the friendship love and repentance for a most serious felony!
THIS IS WONDERFUL! I cannot get enough of this!
Sincerely;
Silencer7.

I love the idea of a slayer accidentally running across the grave of someone they knew - they spend so much time in cemeteries! - and of course having it be Faith and a person she killed makes it very hard in a very different way. You packed so much into such a short drabble. Good job!

I did not anticipate where that was going at all. What a great idea!

Always felt that the psychological impact of the consequences of when they fail; so to speak, was never adequately explored. These are teenagers after all; hardly prepared for what they have to do, beyond the skills to kill and survive as long as they can.

For Faith, there are added consequences of course.
