Play it again, Sam. - Words in the Heroes' Tongue
I have a variable-sword. I urge calm.
Play it again, Sam.
Another entry in kallysten's 2005 Drabble Challenge. Crossposted there; comments, if any, here. 100 words. This is one I'd already written, and have already posted here, but it fitted a request so perfectly that I posted it anyway. Some of you (e.g. kallysten herself, who hadn't Friended me at that time, may not have read it; although most of you probably have. Rating R.

We All Live In A Yellow Submarine

Angel sunk his fangs into Lawson’s throat, sucked briefly, slashed at himself and placed his bleeding wrist to Lawson’s mouth; just a few seconds too late. The sailor’s heart had stopped.

“Well, that’s it, then,” Spike said in disgust, when Angel returned and announced that they now had no way of restarting the engines. “We’re well and truly buggered.”

Weeks later, long after the oxygen had run out, the last of the submariners had died and been eaten, and the two vampires had read every book and magazine on board at least six times, Spike discovered how right he’d been.

Current Mood: busy busy
Current Music: The Beatles, "Yellow Submarine"

I don't think you're going to make your target, but I'm doing my best to play my part. I even inspired my wife curiouswombat to write and post her first ever drabble!

Hehehehehe! I read this when you first posted it, but I can't remember if I commented then. Veeeeeeery good! (I've been reading all your drabbles, but I've been slightly rushed, so not had time to comment properly.)

I think I'm getting a drabble-addiction (to add to my Buffy, Spike, Angel, LJ, icon and wallpaper addictions... *happy sigh*)
