BtVS Drabble: Like Sunlight

Title: Like Sunlight
Fandom: BtVS
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Angel, Buffy.
Rating: PG
Written For: Challenge 9: Fragrant at sesquidrabbles.
Spoilers/Setting: Early Season Two.
Summary: Buffy is like a splash of sunlight in Angel’s dark existence.
Disclaimer: I don’t own BtVS, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Joss Whedon.
A/N: Drabble and a half, 150 words.




Angel loves Buffy’s hair; it’s golden like he imagines the sunlight on fields of ripe corn would be, or a beach on a summer’s day. Being a vampire he can’t tolerate sunlight, he’s a creature of the night, destined to skulk in the shadows, but every time he sees her, Buffy’s bright hair brings a splash of sunlight into his undead existence, and it fills him with a sense almost of euphoria.


Her hair smells as wonderful as it looks. When he holds her close he can’t help burying his nose in it, breathing in the fragrance of her shampoo; she smells of apples, and vanilla, and the subtle floral scent she favours. Being near her fills all his enhanced vampire senses, to the point where he feels he could happily drown in her forever.


Surely this must be what real love feels like; he can’t imagine existing without her.



The End

I am NOT a Bangel fan. However, this definitely sums up quite nicely how I feel about my man, so I can relate and enjoy. :)
We all have our favourite pairings; Buffy/Angel is mine. I'm glad you could appreciate even though the pairing isn't to your tastes.

I've always loved that there are pairings to suit all tastes. I'm not into Buffy/Giles, or Buff/Spike, although they seem very popular pairings. To each their own.

Thank you!
Ayk, I'm a firm believer in to each their own, but when I read something that's not one of my pairings and enjoy it anyway, I like to point that out. I always feel, when receiving or giving reviews, that it's especially meaningful when someone can enjoy something that they would usually not because of the pairing involved.

I've moved away from Giles/Buffy somewhere, but Spike/Buffy will always be my favorite BtVS pairing. But as you said and, again, in which I firmly believe: each to their own. :)
I wish more people could be like you. Too many act all entitled, criticising people for writing pairings that they themselves dislike. There are pairing enough to please everyone.

There are also pairings I would never read, but I dip into pairings I'm not keen on and I've found some really good fics that way. Sometimes it pays to try to be more open-minded. =D
And yet he must.*refers to last line*
Yes, in the end he has no real choice =(

Thank you.
That sounds like something you read off the bottom of a movie poster.
*laughs* It really does!
*grins*

That could be your side job or something.:)
I sure could use the extra income...
Maybe you could look into that. Write monologues. You never know.:)
This was very lovely. I felt that it really captured the sense of longing that Angel has for her.
Thank you, that's so kind of you! Glad you enjoyed it.

(I love your icon.)
This, as per your usual, is really very good quality work, please keep it up!
Thank you.
