A drabble

As buffyx is bored, I let her have a little sneaky peaky at a bit of the long story I'm working on and I thought I'd let you all look at it too.

This works as a drabble and has nothing whatsoever to do with the plot.

He's never told Buffy, but he still dreams of the Initiative sometimes. She thinks he'd been caught, chipped up and escaped. And that's all he's sure he remembers. But he knows he'd been there weeks, upon weeks, with waking dreams of unknown faces, body strapped down, his head held still and forward, but his eyes are looking at his feet. He's drained of blood then bursting full. His head is open; he can feel sawing, prodding, limbs have involuntary reactions. Probes in his brain, chest, heart and arse.
He doesn't find alien abduction stories as funny as he used to.



Now I'm off to enjoy a Chinese banquet with Hunt Sabs.

long story you say?

Dude, you shall post more of this. Very intriguing. Always a sucker for those missing moments when he was at the Initiative.

Well this snippet is nothing to do with the plot really, but I've often wondered why, if he'd been there for awhile (and he must have been) what happened in that time. He had to have been experimented on, and surely that would've been horrendously traumatic. No one ever seems to deal with that.

This story is going to be a huge project for me, as I write so slowly - hopefully not too much. I may post some more snippets soon.

I know what you mean...I have a monster story on my hard drive that is about half done and going so slowly. started it over a year ago as well. I feel your pain!! Make a deal with you: I'll finish if you finish...

You're on, but I've got to start yet!

I have about 7,000 words of random paragraphs, but I'm still at the research/planning stage. Damn, all that Buffy to watch...
