Drabble Set One: Angel, Supernatural, House M.D.  
I gave some drabbles away to speedy commenters, and the first three are ready!

~*~*~


Seeking Balance ("Angel," for witchofthedogs)

Lifetimes upon lifetimes, he is searching still for balance. So briefly mortal, so hell-driven after, he has taken lives in vicious blood-red pleasure.

Every demon he destroys, every spirit or curse conquered is an act of atonement for things he once did. He chases monsters, knowing that he was one— is one. This is why it matters, why his purpose is defined by separating himself from the legacy of his own sins.

The days churn forward with the maddening slowness of immortality. He upholds his promise to himself— to humanity— rendering justice where he can.

It will never be enough

Metallicar Christmas ("Supernatural"—the Impala celebrates Christmas for wenchpixie)

She loves the high-octane gas running through her system for today. Mmmm— slurk— it's the good stuff.

The crumbs in her interior aren't as welcome. A grain of salt now and then is fine, but food ground into the carpet makes her shudder. There'll be no shampooing, not in this weather. Those crumbs could last through April.

The wax is nice. Passing all the rust-buckets in the cities—the taste of salt limning her tires—she's glad for the protection.

And in the parking lot of the motel, the world tucked in for the night… a classic GTO.

Hello, handsome.

Never Trust The Man With The Cane ("House, M.D." for thelana)

"Stop eating that candy cane at me," Wilson says.

"At you?" House sits forward in his chair, waving the candy for emphasis. "I'm saving that for Cuddy, the next time she comes in here to lecture me with her bazooms falling out of her blouse: House, your testing expenses are through the roof. House, you owe me clinic hours. Myeh-myeh-myeh-myeh-MYEH-myeh."

"Scary. So you're just practicing right now?"

"Nope, just eating it. With my tongue. And extra attention to the tip. Mmmm…"

"Okay then, how about this? I've got one too: Mmmmm…"

"It's not funny when you do it."

"Never is."

:D I'm waiting for the idea to dawn on Wilson, if it hasn't already, that there is such a thing as "justifiable homicide."

Case in point^^. ;)

Yes.

Thank you.

I hope you liked this. Short, but definitely one of the things I loved about that show. :)

The House one is killer...

"It's not funny when you do it."

"Never is."


I just about died.

Sigh! Poor tortured Angel. Just once I'd like to see him a bit lighter.

That Impala has great taste. :)

There are times when I seriously wonder why Wilson puts up with House, and why he hasn't brained the man with his own cane yet. This little moment would be exactly one of those times he's got to be tempted. ;)

Sigh! Poor tortured Angel. Just once I'd like to see him a bit lighter.
Do you remember, early in S1, the episode where he's at a party and he has this brief little fantasy of himself as a dancing fool just living it up, with everyone staring at him in horror? Followed by the reality, where he's standing around like a bewildered socially-inept lump, same as always. Just thinking about that cracks me up. :)

That Impala has great taste. :)
:D I looked up the GTO online just to be sure, and found a red '66 model that looked terrific. Definitely her kind of car. ;)

Love them all (damn me for not being online when drabbles offered, LOL) but esp the METALLICAR CHRISTMAS. Awesome! HEeeeeeeeeee. Hello Handsome indeed. She's her owner's car isn't she?! LOL!

Sorry! Might still do one for you if you've got prompts, since the Xmas fics are not budging. This is a "get something out" exercise to take the feeling of "chore" out of it right now. ;)

She's her owner's car isn't she?! LOL!
Mmmmm-hmmm-hmmm, and why wouldn't she be? What happens after dark stays secret-- it's a motto all the Winchesters and their accessories can live by. :D
Pheebs1pheebs1 on December 21st, 2007 04:25 pm (UTC)
Heee!!! Ooh well shall I prompt the Winchesters and Christmas, to help get the Xmas fics going?! Good luck with those by the way ;)))
Pheebs1pheebs1 on December 21st, 2007 04:25 pm (UTC)
PS and thank you for the drabble offer - no worres if you can't do ;) MERRY CHRISTMAS

I adore the Angel drabble!

Like Michael in PB (because his LLI makes him so fascinating) Angel was such a compelling character with his monstrous past and his need to atone...that last line pretty much summed it up! He probably never will!

I liked him even more in his standalone show, because of the drive to make up for the bottomless pit of his wrongs that can never really be laid to rest. Angsty and tortured-- FTW! :D
Maz (or foxxy!): Not crazytuesdaeschild on December 24th, 2007 06:59 pm (UTC)
I loved Angel too! He was so tortured and driven...and it made for lots of angst! Lots of humour too because whoever could forget Smiletime?!!

But essentially he was such a dark, brooding vampire and his story ended far too soon!

Happy Christmas, sweetheart!

Dean would be so proud of her.
Twins under the skin! Or under the surface, anyway. :0

Glad you liked it-- it was a tricky prompt for me, but I do like a challenge. :D

The Angel piece was appropriately moody. Loved the Metallicar drabble! "Hello, handsome." LOL! Dean would be horrified that she's cheating on him :)

Oh, he deserves it! Faithless little slut that he is. ;)

Plus, it's Christmas. The Metallicar deserves a little extra, you know? :D

Re: haha
Glad you liked it! Poor Wilson-- no matter the situation, House almost always changes the rules mid-game. ;)
