Decisions

DecisionsDawn found she couldn't sleep.

She lay in bed contemplating the ceiling, Spike's limbs wound about her body as his face burrowed into her chest, her thoughts were churning with ways to deal with a destructive relationship that was beyond her ken.

Torn with indecision about confronting her sister, who was sneaking about like a thief in the night, Dawn could see a lot of screaming and denial in choosing that path.

Perhaps talking to Spike in the morning would be easier, at least she would have a conversation that wouldn't degenerate into name-calling.

Decision made, she drifted into sleep.

Continuing to love.

Whenever I think about Spike, snuggling works its way into the picture. I'm thoroughly enjoying that this is from Dawn's POV as she takes care of our poor injured boy.

I found another drabble challenge community to play with — wordoftheday100 — so I'm inflicting Spawny goodness on them too. They've just kicked off, so go give them a hug.

Pleased that you're enjoying this. My muse seems to be dawdling along at the moment. Guess I'll wait for the next challenge to see where things go from here.

::stares at Wolf's latest masterpiece::

What's this blather you were telling me about your Muse going on vacation without you? What, she sends daily postcards?! You're on a bloody (all puns intended!) writing streak! ::glares in jealousy::

Ah, but we're all the better for it... :D

The muse has been back for about six months now, after a three year sabbatical I know not where. I have to wonder if the muse was visiting someone else's head.

The various LJ community challenges seem to prod the muse into co-operating, so I'm well pleased with the results.


Wolf: Oy! (Prodding Muse) Muse, the challenge from the new drabble community is "ken", can we work that into the Alley!verse?

Muse: (currently in the guise of Dawn) Shouldn't be a problem. But there will be more snuggling of Spike.

Wolf: You know, it would be nice to move the story along into actual conversation.

Muse: There will be Spike snuggling. (Muse starts blathering on about the weather in Barbados this time of year)

Wolf: Okay. Spike snuggling it is. How about we deal with actually confronting the little relationship problem next time?

Muse: Maybe. Oh look! Shiny! (Muse is lost in a vision of shiny that, oddly enough, includes leather pants)


The inside of my head is an interesting place.

Ooh, loves the cuddles. Also, can't wait to see what Dawn does. *hopes she has a good resolve face*

As strange as it sounds, I can't wait to see what Dawn does either.

I only have a rough idea of direction, I just see what the next challenge brings and take it from there. It makes things interesting.

Ah, she can try, but there's just this feeling it won't go well... continuing to read with fascination. Lovely work!
