Illyria Drabble: Death Is Your Gift
Here is the next part of my post-NFA Illyria drabble/ficlet series. Previous parts are HERE. 100 words, PG-13 for language.


Death Is Your Gift


“Fuck.” Faith spun on her heel, returned to the hanging bag, and smote it a mighty blow. “Fuck, no. No.”

“Your weapon has power,” Illyria said. “It could end this miserable existence.”

“I don’t…” Faith struck the bag again, “fucking care! I am not going to kill you.”

“I cannot live like this!” Illyria slammed her fist into the bag, penetrating the canvas, and scattered sand over the floor as she withdrew it. “This emptiness, this… grief, these memories that are not mine. I can bear it no longer. Please. I beg you. Send me to join Wesley in oblivion.”

Oh, trying to get Faith the kill her by referring to Wes. That's got to have some effect on Faith. I like Illyria's wanton sandbag destruction, too.

Poor Illyria! You can feel her heartbreak and confusion. She is a true alien in every way and yet the memories of Fred force her to react to the "infection" of humanity. Well done.

I'm not sure which one of them I feel worse for, at the moment.

Yes, tough call.

*shivers*

I somehow can't see Faith ever agreeing. And if Illyria starts pounding on her the way Faith did with Angel, poor Slayer will be pulped.

I hope I can write a scene like this so well....

Not the best person in the world to try that one on.

It would be difficult to think of anyone worse.

Oh, Illyria, Wes is not a card that should have been played. I'm hurting for both of them here.

Illyria is laying Faith's old wounds bare - not intentionally, but painfully nonetheless.

Just a question: can Illyria really be killed?
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: March 4th, 2009 01:00 am (UTC) (Link)
Marcus Hamilton managed to render her unconscious; I would say that the Slayer Scythe, wielded by a Slayer, should be able to kill her.

No problem. It would be ironic, at the least, if Illyria wanted to die and if that would be hard to impossible to accomplish.

I think you're probably right--didn't the Guardian say the Scythe was used to kill the last pure demon on Earth? And Illyria isn't even really that any more.
