When I said I felt like writing Xander for this prompt, [livejournal.com profile] lilachigh suggested something that focused on his feelings when Cordy was in hospital, post kidnapping and microscope assault. That was a really good idea, but it's going to take a little bit more thought to develop it the way I want it to go, so I went with this instead.

Title: Leader of the pack
Cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] tamingthemuse for prompt: 109 - Anguish and [livejournal.com profile] fantas_magoria for the episode 'The Pack'.

Title: Everything they touch
Prompt: 108 - Dead at the wheel
At: [livejournal.com profile] tamingthemuse
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,670
Summary: I googled the phrase 'Dead at the wheel' and in with the stories of a shooting in Liverpool was this article from The New York Times, dated Saturday 6th April 1907. This story is inspired by that one. Names have been changed to protect the innocent (and because I really doubt that Spike and Dru were actually there *g*).
Note: I also googled and googled for information on the locks in place on the Ohio River in 1907, but couldn't get a fix on their location. So if you happen to know that I've placed mine wrongly, I would love to be told.

My question earlier in the week, about spelling, garnered more comments than any story I've written. Are y'all trying to tell me something there? *g* (kidding, okay?)

I've been off work this week and this here is my 100th consecutive post to [livejournal.com profile] tamingthemuse. I think I might bow out, once I get my two years in. It's been fun, but I fancy the luxury of having more than a day to write, so I can polish up my stories a bit, at least for a while.

Ravish, as a prompt, was begging for sex - yes, I do tend towards the obvious, why do you ask? *g*- but I can't do PWP in 1,500, or even 3,500 words so that meant going back to an established relationship.

In Observations, Spike and Xander got together. In Road Trip they rescued Riley from a vampire blood house and dumped him on Angel. At the end of Road Trip they got a letter from Angel. This is how Angel came to write that letter.

It's been a strange week and I am still knackered, so I hope this makes sense. But on the bright side it is a long week end, so I am going to dedicate it to some serious reading. There is so much that I really want to catch up on, I can't believe how productive you've all been over the last week... fortnight... three weeks, even. I know I should go back over the last few chapters and rework them a little, to make Angel's motivations a little clearer, but I don't think that will be this week end. Meanwhile, I want to thank you all for the wonderful comments that have helped me shape this story and these characters. When I eventually get it finished, it will be immeasurably better for your input.

 Title: Lessons
 Fandom: BtVS
 Prompt: 96 - Keckle. I haven't used the actual word, because it doesn't fit into any of my characters' vocabularies in a way that wouldn't be forced, but it is there and I know that's alright, because I've done it before (I used the prompt word 15 times, without actually using it, in my first ever Taming story). It also caused Dru to say something she otherwise might not have said, but which really worked out well for me.
