Bestowal

BestowalDrusilla was deep in lucubration when Spike and Wolf returned, cards laid out before her in the candlelight. Wolf gave the woman her present and watched as Drusilla's eyes widened in delight as she spilled the bones across the table.

"I'd like to engrave runes on them for you, but I'll need you to tell me which symbols go on what bones, love."

"His fingers and toes have such a lovely tale to tell. They say that my Puppy has been good and will get her rewards."

Spike rubbed his hands together. "Right, get your kit off then."

"Sweet talker."

::laughs and shakes head:: Subtlety just isn't in his repertoire, is it? Love it.

Blunt and too the point. None of this pussy-footing around for our Spike.

Mmmmmm...

"Spike, no! First, you've got take me out for a meal, buy me flowers and chocolates and then ask nicely!" Never happen.

"Right luv, you've pulled!" would work for me with Spike. :0)

I'm really glad you like Wolf, original characters can be a tough sell with a fandom audience.

They're such an interesting family? Horde?

Spike rubbed his hands together. "Right, get your kit off then."

Oh, he is subtle, isn't he?

Pack? Just it depend on your perspective.

I'm sure tact is Spike's middle name.

Er, maybe it's because I'm not real familiar with this fandom, but I can't tell whom Spike is talking to with his last line. Otherwise, nice to find out what the bones are for! ^_^

I thought the confusion might be there if you're unfamiliar with the fandom. In the second last line Spike is talking to Wolf, but is just as likely to be talking to both women. The last line is Wolf.

Brief primer.

Drusilla has visions of the future, but she's also as mad as a meat axe and often lost in a child's world. A vicious child who pulls the legs off kittens to see what happens. She has surreal, arachaic speech patterns.

Spike is a Victorian gentleman reborn as London working man, not quite Cockney, more Johnny Rotten (he'd say Sid Vicious, but Sid was a talentless little prick, we agree to disagree on this point).

Wolf is Ireland born, currently lives in London. Her manner of speech is not as blunt as Spike's, well most of the time.

Ah, that helps quite a bit. With well-established fandoms, it's hard to find useful info on the web because it's so in-depth, and this is *much* more useful to someone like me. ^_^ Thanks!
