Drabble - Enough is Enough

It's another boring day in the office. ::sigh::

paratti wanted some fic to cheer her up, and Lo! A drabble appeared.

WARNING: Character death and other dark themes.


Enough is Enough - Bogwitch

It was the Slayer’s fate to die alone. The war endless, her battle was lost. Another had been called; her time was done. Cold and months dead, her body lay, carelessly dumped for the living to forget.

No grave for the fallen warrior this time, only the dark sewer and the dirty water that dragged her lifeless hair downstream, curling into knots never to be brushed. Hands that once pummelled passion away nibbled to bone by rodents and feral felines. Beauty bloated to decay.

Between her empty eyes a railroad spike still protruded, his last kiss a touch of death.


I don't hate Buffy this much really, I'm still Spuffy. I just like writing darkness.




Also, I finally got to see Hero last night. I am in love with this film! I want to write like how that film looks. That is my aim.

Yay - he finally killed the bitch.

Now you know just how much it's cost me to let you have your Spuffy chapter in Twelve Days.

You might be surprised.

It won't be fluff - so you probably won't be surprised come to think of it.

(Deleted comment)
Thanks. I do enjoy writing about the grim.

::thud::

Wow, that's all I can say. Wow.

You will make Lesley's day.

Obviously, it was 10 minutes well spent. Thanks.

It did:)

But there's always room for more Buffy Gruseome Horrible Death Fic in the world.
::Sniffles with puppy dog eyes::

Bwah! You're just sooooo very, very evil, Lesley. 't's why I love you so much. {g}

Smooch.

It applies to you too, you know.

Embrace the Dark Side, young padawan...

See, that's how I would have liked season six to end. Man, did I ever hate Buffy at the end of season six. {g}

It's tempting to say I agree, but...


Well, she was redeemed in my eyes with her care of Spike in season seven, although the eye rollings and ignoring him while he was totally fruitcake in the school basement AFTER she knew he'd gotten a soul didn't help me love her any.

But I'm still a total Spuffier. I just write around season six as best I can. :-)

I am a waverer really. I have never liked her all that much, so it wasn't difficult for her to fall from grace for me. Though her actions in season 6 were dreadful, there were reasons for them. I have more problems with some of her later behaviour.

Like you I just try and write someone a little me likeable.

WHAT!???!!!!!

That's it.

You've traumatised me for life.

Evil. That's what you are. Eeeeevil.


Neat :)

I thought you'd enjoy that. :D

I soo don't have issues with Buffy. Me likey Buffy.

Me likey bloated, decaying Buffy!

YAY

I watched too much late night TV. Thanks.

:)

And if I could use more words, it'd be even more horrible!

I like this - where do you place it in the timeline?

Um. Hadn't really. post As You Were anyway. Before Seeing Red? or about the time of Beneath You?

It's about freakin' time...

Not the killing Buffy, the watching Hero part--I mean. Been loving Tony Leung Chiu-Wai since 1984. Maggie Cheung's cool too. Jet Li used to be. Once Upon a Time in China. <--Only Asian Cinemaphile nerds will get that.

The follow up film is in Asia now. It's called House of Flying Daggers. It's got Takeshi Kaneshiro. He's very pretty. It's not a sequel, but it's got the same director and same style.

Nice ficlet btw. You're really good with the warm fuzzies!

I confess to being late to Hero. I haven't seen much Jet Li, but lots of Jackie Chan (for the trash value). I think the only serious Chinese film apart from the Killer I've seen is Raise the Red Lantern and I really like that. I can't wait to see House of Flying Daggers.

I can rec a bunch of them if you're interested. Even early Jackie Chan ones that are really good. So sad what he's doing now.

Rec away! I love this stuff. Not Jackie Chan though, because I'll watch it all eventually anyway. (something about him makes me want to mother him!).

I have just bought House of Daggers on Ebay - yay!

Holy crap, you're fast!

You really are addicted to Ebay!
Did you buy the grilled cheese too?

Oh, about the recs...how about respectable/proper movies that Jackie Chan and Jet Li have been in? Or were you thinking of movies that only had ' wu xia'(martial arts)in it?

Jet Li did a series of films based on a legendary martial arts master Wong Fei-Hung. The movies begin with "Once Upon a time in China". The sequels are just as good if not better. "Fong Siu Yuk" is also awesome.

I was thinking more the Wu Xia. I particulary like one with good women fighters in.

I'll take a look at the Jet Li ones, though (um... possibly after xmas. That Ebay habit of mine needs attention)

Holy crap, you're fast!

Hee. I read somewhere that this film was next, and I'd thought 'I want to see that now!'. Your comment made me realise it was a finished film, so I looked it up and there it was! It said 'buy me!' in a commanding voice and I obeyed.

That Ebay habit of mine needs attention
Darn tootin'!!! I understand though. See my icon? :)

The ones I recs do have martial arts, but they're v. different in terms of theme and style. Less serious in the tone, but v. entertaining. I used to love Jet Li. Another good one of his that showcases his acting *and* his fighting is Fists of Fury. ::sigh::

Here's one that has swordplay and women fighters...The Swordsman or Dong Fong But Bai (in Cantonese). The Bride with White Hair is also good. Another one that might fit the bill is Deadful Melody, although the translated title is truly cringe worthy it's got the stuff. You've probably already seen Chinese Ghost Story, right? Classic.

Anyway, that's all I've got right now. I've got more if you want something outside of </i>Wu Xia</i>. Films where Chow Yun Fat used to be cool and ones with Tony Leung Chiu-Wai (I love, love, love him).

The icon is perfect!

Thanks. I'll bear those recs in mind on my next Ebay splurge.

I swear I have seen Chinese Ghost STory, but I can't remember it... oops.

Cheered me up too! :0D

So glad he finally saw sense! Mwahahaha!

Now I know who all the evil people are!

I don't hate Buffy this much really, I'm still Spuffy. I just like writing darkness.

Mhm. Right. If you say so. Must be true then.

Between her empty eyes a railroad spike still protruded, his last kiss a touch of death.
That image will haunt me at night...

IMhm. Right. If you say so. Must be true then.

And what's that supposed to mean, eh, eh?

That image will haunt me at night...

My work is done.

Think of what I'd have done it wasn't 100 words, maggots, eyes that stare forever, skin blushed and soft where it's rotting...


maggots, blood and well seasoned (=rotting and soft) raw meat (is that omophagia?)? YUM!! ::cackles::

Eyes do haunt me.

And what's that supposed to mean, eh, eh?
That I take your words at face value?!

Love your drabbles and stories, *although* I know that you will hurt and/or kill Buffy eventually. Your love of her must be the subtle kind, I would haver never guessed it...

I'm encouraged by bad people!

*although* I know that you will hurt and/or kill Buffy eventually.

Not always!

I'm encouraged by bad people!

Fine excuse! No wait. Lame excuse! Birds of a feather flock together.

:P

I like writing horror. Would you prfer I did all this to Spike? Wouldya?

Would you prefer I did all this to Riley or Xander?

Yes!

What and sully my LJ with their presence?

Yes!
That would not sully your journal, but be a good deed.

As both characters are on my 'do not go there list', you might have a wait...

I'm still young and not (very) impatient. There is plenty of time...

I'm quite late in commenting on this, but this was lovely. Very poignant. I think I'll have that dark image in my head for quite a while.

It's never too late. :)

Thanks!
