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.

God, but you've got such a way with words! Only the tiniest little snippet, and already I'm drawn into this story completely. I know you say it's nothing to do with the plot really, but as long as this bit's in there and Spike's ordeal at the hands of those Initiative doctors is touched on, I know I'm going to love your WIP.

But then, I'm biased. I've loved each and every thing you've deigned to publish so far! ;-)

Thanks as always.

I really am going to have to expand this idea a bit, aren't I? Lol!

The WIP has hit a snag though. Whilst doing my research, Giles said two words which unravelled my entire plot! I'm having to figure out a fix.

I mentioned the story to commit myself to writing the thing but it's terrifying huge amount to do for me. Your encouragement certainly helps though!

Oh naughty Giles! Shall I spank him for you?

Don't worry - I'm sure the siolution will present itself in due time. Your initial idea is too good to go to waste just because of something Giles said! There's got to be a way around it, and I'm sure you'll find it eventually.

Yes, please do that!

I think I have a fix now - just hope it doesn't read like a fudge.
