Drabble: The Food of Love
One of the most common pairings in Smallville fanfic has an abbreviation that has always made me think of a possible Buffyverse pairing (non-canon). I’ve never seen anyone write that Buffyverse pairing for real but I have occasionally threatened to write it myself. Now, at last, I’ve done it.

100 words, PG, early Season 7, Xander-centric slash pairing.


The Food of Love


Buffy barged into Xander’s apartment without knocking. “Hey, Xan,” she called, “I need…” Her jaw dropped as she realized Xander wasn’t alone.

“You should have knocked,” Xander complained, snatching up a cushion to protect his modesty.

“Sorry!” Buffy’s eyebrows climbed as she recognized Xander’s equally naked companion. “Huh? I didn’t know you swung that way.”

“Hey, demon magnet here,” Xander explained, “and the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” He swung his arm in a gesture that encompassed his demon lover and the fast food boxes littering the floor. “How could I resist? Clem brought hot wings.”

I somehow knew it had to be Clex. Now I need brain-bleach! Thank you for that!

Sorry about the brain-bleach! Thank you!

Wow! Tentacle porn!?
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: August 2nd, 2009 08:20 am (UTC) (Link)
Possibly; we've only seen the tentacles come out when Clem is doing a defensive warning display and it's not clear what else they're used for.

Awesome!

Ow!

I'm sending you a bill for the brain bleach.

You should have seen the longer version before I edited it down to 100 words!

If you keep trying to make me claw my eyes out like this, how will I ever keep reading your evilly creative work?

Voice transcription software?

There you go again, giving Joss ideas for Season 8.
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: August 2nd, 2009 08:24 am (UTC) (Link)
I wouldn't put it past him.

Hey, they both like snack foods, what's not to like?
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: August 2nd, 2009 08:25 am (UTC) (Link)
And they like TV, and I wouldn't be surprised if Clem likes comic books...
zanthinegirl From: zanthinegirl Date: July 31st, 2009 11:13 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee! I mean, I figured that was where you were going, but still cute!
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: August 2nd, 2009 08:25 am (UTC) (Link)
Thank you!
pfeifferpack From: pfeifferpack Date: August 1st, 2009 12:19 am (UTC) (Link)
Perfect! They both love cheap snacks and TV...I see a long and happy future there. Xander DID ask Willow to gay him up after all.

Exactly!

BUFFY
(smiles) What if you just start attracting male demons?

DAWN
(giggles) Clem always liked you.

ANYA
(pouting) It would serve you right.

It's practically canon!
cbtreks From: cbtreks Date: August 1st, 2009 01:54 am (UTC) (Link)
Managed to guess this one and now, I'm sorry to say, I can't help wondering if Clem is as wrinkly and folded . . . everywhere . . . as his face is. It's a scary visual!
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: August 2nd, 2009 08:28 am (UTC) (Link)
Perhaps the wrinkles and folds straighten out when he's... ready for action. Or is that an even more scary visual?
evilawyer From: evilawyer Date: August 1st, 2009 04:57 am (UTC) (Link)
Now, that's a pairing made in heaven.
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: August 2nd, 2009 08:28 am (UTC) (Link)
Indeed! And it's practically canon.
ayinhara From: ayinhara Date: August 1st, 2009 01:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Interesting and creative idea. It's much more believable than a Spike/Xander pairing.
speakr2customrs From: speakr2customrs Date: August 2nd, 2009 08:29 am (UTC) (Link)
Thank you!
