Fine Tuning

Fine TuningXander ran his hands over his body, checking that everything was where he'd left it. "So, did it work?" He caught the surprised look on Andrew's face and turned to the mirror to find that his hair was now fire engine red.

Andrew rechecked the ingredients. "Where did you get this sliced valerian root?"

"From that Romanian woman at Camden Market."

Andrew sniffed the package. "Looks like she's given you ginger instead. I'll grab some from the office and pick you up some hair dye."

"Andrew, could you recheck the spell before you go? I seem to smell like tea."

Eh, what's wrong with fire engine red hair? :D

I quite like red hair, which is handy as it's not like I had a say in the genetics of things, but having clown hair thrust upon you seems to have come as a shock to Xander. Still, could have been worse.

Well, then, I wonder what would happen if Xander soaked in hot water for awhile?

He'd have skin to match the hair?

I was thinking he'd end up in a bathtub full of tea, but yes ...

It seems to be the red hair that's picked up a following.

The tea is in reference to the previous fic, in response to you and edenfalling asking for Andrew to turn the junior Slayers into action figures. I will all make sense.

Red headed me will sit and wait and wonder as patiently as I know how for the revelation.

That's all there is of this one, but it does provide a little backstory for Fallen.
