Frustration

FrustrationDawn would have loved to scream in frustration, but that would only result in panicked people appearing with weapons at the ready. There was nothing worth throwing that would result in a satisfying crash, plus it would receive the same reaction as screaming, although possibly with less weapons.

She'd put too much hard work into her notes to start shredding them, so she was stuck with the extremely unsatisfying silent fuming that was bordering on crying.

Strong hands started massaging the tension from her shoulders.

"Fancy going out for ice cream, love?"

And suddenly, the world seemed a brighter place.

Dawn's more frustrated than anything at the moment. Annoyed at being lumbered with the research while the braindead Slayers get their beauty sleep and she can't find the connection she needs to solve her problem. So wrist breakage probably isn't going to come into it. No really a thing in my Spike and Dawn, that's more Buffy behaviour than anything.

oh i agree completely, i think she has a totally different way of reacting to her anger. Damn lucky for spike really, the females in Joss's verse can really cause damage when they want to! ;)

You may want to check first, especially with my original stuff, which quite often includes scary, head choppy things.

Grrrrr, I know that level of frustration. Sadly, I rarely have a pair of hands appearing to help with the tension. Nice.

Thanks. I get the feeling that the mention of hands and you're anybody's. Writing in this particular !verse always makes me think of you.

It definitely gets my attention. ;) I'm happy this makes you think of me -- nice to know I'm "inspiring" something so good.
