Shameless self-promotion, as work won't promote me

Sandra Strait (who created my Spike/Walrus icon) started a series of drabbles on some of the Spike Yahoo! groups looking at Spike from the perspective of minor characters and strangers whose lives he had altered on his journey through time.  I jumped on the bandwagon before anyone else even realised that it had wheels, and produced this BtVS S7 100 word ficlet

Pavlov’s Bellringer
They dance beneath us.  We look down on them from the balcony, I and my sire.  The one who changed me forever, gave me power, made me special.
He created me.  We belong together, taking whatever we want.  Why does he reject me?
He took me, he drank me, he fed me; he pushes me away.
Hurts.  Not going to take it, even from him.  Anger.  Hatred.  I’m strong, not gonna be pushed around no more.  By anyone.
But he moves fast, the bamboo is in my heart, and I’m falling.
And the last thing I hear is Aimee Mann.

The characters in this story do not belong to me, but are being used for amusement only and all rights remain with Joss Whedon, Mutant Enemy, the writers of the original episodes, and the TV and production companies responsible for the original television programmes.  BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER ©2002 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation.  All Rights Reserved.

While I'm on - why do only robots read the Roxyverse stories?  One day I'll have to write a GoogleBot/JennyBot story, it must fancy her something rotten.  It's there almost every day, but the only humans who ever read them are ones who did badly-phrased Google searches for something totally unconnected and arrived there by mistake.

Back to work tomorrow.  So the pace of my writing will slow down a bit, but I've done a lot during the holiday and there should be more updates soon.
