Wow! Poor Xander!

Definitely dark and depressing.

Thank you? I think it's fairly optimistic by the end, though. I mean, Xander is being sired by Spike so it isn't quite the end.

I think I might be missing a vital point?

"Drink Xander. C’mon love, that’s it.” Xander was suckling at Spike’s wrist, taking primal comfort there in his last moments so much like his first. He was cold, and so, so tired, and gradually, as the systems of his body shut down one by one, he fell asleep to die."

AM I wrong in assuming Spike 'Sired' Xander, in which case he'll rise a vampire? In which case it's not depressing at all.

No, you didn't miss anything. Spike is siring Xander. So in that regard, no, it's not completely devoid of hope. :-D

Oh, Wow, this is exactly what I needed.

Gotta say, as a complete angstwhore, I applaud the dark humor and the ironic tone to this. I was literally just looking for a one-shot for a break from my paper, and this did perfectly. A sweet little angst-brownie, perfect length, and done just right.

I need to go see what else you've written!

I'm glad I could help! Thank you very much for your kind words.
