December: Judging

What do you think other people judge you to be like?

I've been judged my whole life so I'm pretty much used to it. Sometimes I work with it and other times I do the opposite of what they expect. I'm the daughter of the Fist of God and a Catholic school girl. Do you have any idea how fun it was to talk about kinky sex and have a set of handcuff when I was fourteen? I loved to see the expressions on people's faces when I said something shocking and unexpected. Oh who are we kidding? I still love to do that. Then there are the people that take a look at my dyed hair, piercings and tattoos and see something else entirely. They expect heavy drug user, outcast, going to do a random loner sniper shooting. Sometimes I let that stereotype stand. It can be fun.

Now though, wizards and others in the supernatural community see me as a warlock. It doesn't matter what I do or how many times I help Harry, they'll always see the kid that messed up. It doesn't even get better with time. Harry has the same thing and he hasn't done anything since he was sixteen and he's forty now.

So, I'm used to people judging and seeing me for me. I'd say that it doesn't hurt and usually it doesn't. It's not that I care what the Council thinks, I don't. They can kiss my warlocked ass, but sometimes it does matter.

[Locked Private]
Carlos is a Warden and he says it won't matter but it will. The Council will treat him differently because of me. I've seen it already in little things and they don't even know yet. I know they suspect I was helping Peabody mind control Carlos. There's even a part of me that wonders if he thinks the same thing. Or maybe thinks that his love for me is part of that, like Luccio's involvement with Harry. If I'm honest, I have to wonder the same thing. Does he still love me? Is it fading w/Peabody's hold? Questions I don't really want to examine too closely. Sometimes ignorance really is bliss.

I know people see a blue haired Goth that does the Jedi mind control and they're just waiting for the other shoe to drop. That's the thing about making judgments, the person being judged loves to do the unexpected just to confuse or piss everyone off.

December - Incredible experience

What's the most incredible experience you ever had?

The most incredible experience I've ever had was traveling with the Doctor. The moment that he put his hand in mine and said "run", my life has never been the same. I learned that there was more to life than working in a shop, eating chips, hanging with mates and watching Mickey watch football. I've been to other planets, been back to days that have been dead and gone, been forward in time to see the end of the world. I've helped stop World War Three, tried to help with the Sycorax, even saved the Doctor's life a few times with my tiny human brain. Through it all, the one constant, was the TARDIS. When I didn't have the Doctor, I had her.
TARDISCollapse )
The most incredible experience I've ever had was stepping into a wooden blue box and saw the wonder of the TARDIS.

What do you hate that everyone else seems to like?

That's easy. Twilight. No, seriously, I hate it with a passion. Cliché right? I’m a Slayer that hates a story about vampires. Don't even get me started on the "love" story and I use that term loosely. It is so not fun to be on the receiving end of stalker love. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Okay fine, I'll admit that my relationship with Spike was super complicated with stalking undertones and we ended up as sort of friends. I may have issues substituting him and Angelus in the role of Edward but come on ---. Who finds that sexy?

Vampires are not sexy or cool and no, it's not sour grapes after the whole Harmony got a reality show and became a celebrity thing. Though please, Harmony?!?!

How am I supposed to save people if they think that vampires are so great? It's hard enough to do it now with the Goths and wannabes out there and the Harmony Action Doll on the Shopping network. Now there are teenagers (and their mothers ewwwww) who fantasize about their own Edward. GAH!

Oh! Another thing, VAMPIRES DO NOT SPARKLE. Seriously, who comes up with this stuff?

November: Preparing a meal

Preparing a holiday meal

It had to be perfect. There really was no other option for her. It was the first Thanksgiving after her mom died and she was not going to have the Indians taking revenge on Sunnydale fest. There would be no apocalypse, there would be no demons or ghosts or anything else supernatural to ruin it. It was going to be a Hallmark holiday, damn it and Buffy would make sure of it. Even if she had to stake every vampire, decapitate every demon and exorcise every ghost.

Buffy ran the preparations as if she was a general in the field of battle. Assignment had been given and she'd micromanaged to make sure they were completed perfectly. Oh, she saw the dirty looks and heard the whisperings but there was no way she was going to fall down in this so she ignored them. Her relationship with Dawn was spiraling out of control. She couldn't be the mother her sister needed, especially when she needed it just as badly herself. They were both floundering without their anchor and it was hard, but this she could do. After all, how hard was it to make a perfect holiday meal? Martha Stewart did it all the time. Then again, Martha didn't live over a Hellmouth.

November: Glitch


It was one of the many things that Rose loved about the Doctor. Those little things that he got wrong and the banter that they would go through to get around his admitting that he was wrong. She supposed with all the traveling through time and space that he did, being off a year to a nine hundred year old man would make it a bit of an ish. Twelve hours to him was the same as twelve months for her. The seventeenth century was close enough to the twenty first century in his mind.

For her, it just made their traveling that much more exciting. You literally never knew what would be outside the TARDIS doors. You might be expecting New Italy on a far away planet in a distant time and get eighteenth century Wales, but it would still be an adventure. It would still be full of excitement and fun. Even the TARDIS' glitches were fun. She couldn't count the number of times that she'd fallen arse over teakettle when the TARDIS landed but no matter the times, Rose would be laughing.

Every day was an adventure with the Doctor and she wouldn't miss it for the world, glitches or no.

November: Overhear a conversation

Overhear a conversation

The negotiations had been delicate, the White Court and the Jade Court hadn't had reason for interactions in centuries. Both parties preferred it that way. Lara, however, had a different agenda. She was not her father and while he was still the puppet and she had to be careful, she slipped in her own agenda from time to time. Those little hints of who was really in charge was subtle and were only noticed if you knew Lara very well. Very few people did which helped in the camouflage.

She was presently sitting at a table in a small airport lounge sipping tea. Unlike wizards that traveled through the Nevernever, Lara preferred her private jet for travel. She especially preferred the VIP lounge in which she was waiting. Her light eyes traveled around the room, looking for a prospective meal. The succubus barely paid attention to the men and women that were staring at her, trying to get her attention. She was focused on a group of men sitting nearby. What caught her attention of those men rather than the others was the knowledge that one of them was a virgin. That was a delicacy for the White Court and they were rare but that paled in comparison to what they were talking about. The Karmic Circle.

Eyes that had been sultry and predatory had suddenly become alert. The conversation wasn't philosophical in nature, it was descriptive. They were planning to use the power one could find there. Flashes of a memory, something that she'd tucked away in the back of her mind, suddenly came to the surface. Ebony dark hair, full lips, a calculating smile and an essence that exuded power. There was the barest hint of a smile as she realized the future was now, the steps to the dynasty that she'd wanted to create began with this one, an overheard conversation.
