Drabble-Something Lost

Title: Something Lost
Author: Anviloverheaven
Rating: G
Prompt: Through The Looking Glass
Setting: The Gift through to Bargaining
A/N:
Just a drabble, and I'm not sure if it works or not. Set in an AU where Spike was the one to be cursed with a soul. How he lost it, I'll leave to your imagination.

 

 

Something Lost

Niblet knew all along. Had done since that night on the tower. Not how it happened mind, only that it had. Never once asked, and never told. Kept her mouth shut.

If the others noticed anything off when we were out patrolling, they put it down to grief.

Tried to get it back, really I did, but we were just so bloody busy. Couldn’t ask the Watcher, and the witches were working on that special project they were forever whispering about. 

And even if I'd found a way, it would’ve been pointless.

Especially now that she’s walking down those stairs.

The clipped sentences and word choice definitely evoke a Spike's inner ramblings feeling. :)

I think it works. Spike lost his soul because he experienced perfect misery, right? It all fits together really well, and I love the last line.

In my head it was the old fashioned way, ie happiness, but re-reading, I can see it working the other way as well. Especially in a switched around kind of world.

This is such a neat idea! I love that he doesn't change who he is at all, even without the soul.

Thanks for reading :)

I think if he'd lost his soul, Spike would have just beat on the demons harder and found it more difficult to avoid biting certain Scoobies. He's a total Fanon!Spike...

Intriguing drabble that sounds like a start of a long and plotty story.

Probably not :) I try to write long and plotty, but I'm far to crap at it, and it never works :)

Intriguing little drabble! You did an impressive amount of world-building in 100 words; nicely done. And I'd love to read more of this 'verse!

ETA as it belatedly occurred to me that this icon works better...
