  TITLE: The Train Job (#2 of a series)

  AUTHOR: kerk hiraeth

  FANDOM: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (AU: set in the 22'verse)

  CHARACTERS: Neither has revealed their name as yet, but one will become significant in this 'verse. One is a Slayer; recently empowered, the other; very much older, is her lover and (unofficial) watcher.

  LENGTH: 100,

  A/N: This drabble is part of two series; this series of unconnected, but thematically linked stories, as well as to the 22'verse. It follows the last story written in that 'verse, which was set on Buffy's birthday.

  WARNING: Not for this story, but the ones connected to it. There are implications, but no explicit references to what is, in most of the world, an illegal relationship in the sense that when it became sexual one of the couple was underaged. By the time this first story in their story is set though that person is older; just, than Buffy was when she graduated from Sunnydale High School. It should be noted that the relationship was always consensual, if reluctant on the older partner's part.

  Also the younger partner is Hermaphrodite, which I know is regarded as an outdated; somewhat frowned upon term, but I personally do not like the term intersex, and that is reflected in her feelings on the subject. I considered, from the creation of these characters; more than three years ago, using more modern terminology, but she; my muse, as well as the character, wouldn't let me. If that offends, I apologise, but only out of respect for your; you the reader, feelings.

 

   All this is well longer than the story itself, so I'd better get it down.

 

 

     “Do I what?

   He grinned, biting back whatever response he'd planned; coughed, making her frown. He looked very old of a sudden, as if The Great Spirit wrested vitality from him. His pride refused assistance, so it wasn't attempted.

   She helped him on to the footplate though.

   She knew such pride; it fueled her very spirit. Such pride prevented her abusing this power that suffused her every sinew nowadays.


   Usually.


   Despite him, she felt such terror it killed him.

   What poisoned his blood had done so before they met.

 

   Praying, she followed instruction and slowly took the train west.

   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;

   LENGTH: 100,

   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!


   “You're disgusting!


   Scarlet pimple was easier to find.

 

      Goddess watch over us in these dark times,
