Title: forever young
Pairing: Spike/Xander(gen)
Disclaimer: not mine
Summary: Xander is forever young

Just something that popped into my head. Unbeta'd and feel free to steal it if you want.
Takes place after sunnydale falls


Nobody really noticed at first, how he looked the same as he did in his sophomore year. He entered 12th grade still looking the same as he did the year he met Buffy. The year Buffy died is face was still fresh and unlined. The year the hellmouth caved in, his hair was still as glossy and bouncy as it had been all those years ago. A year after he lost his eye everyone was shocked to find it had regenerated. That was the first time they noticed something was "wrong". Of course this led to a massive research party. Giles took the watchers diaries, Willow searched with magic, Buffy beat up demons to get answers, but it was Dawn who caught the first clue. She'd been looking in her sisters 10th grade yearbook. She saw Xander standing with four strangers in the Sunnydale high school quad. Underneath the picture was written 'hyena pack'.

"Buffy, what's this?" asked Dawn pointing to the pic.
"Oh those are the kids that got possessed by hyena spirits in 10th grade, Xander got one too." Buffy said.
"Did you notice Xander looks just like he does in this picture?" Dawn asked.

This sent everyone on a mad search for anything about Primals and possessions. It was a year and a half later that they discovered the only person to survive a Primal possession was found alive 220 years after the fact. This person, a shaman, hadn't aged a day and was said to have regrown one of his arms.

And so when Spike showed up 30 years later, having somehow survived the fight in L. A. It was a fresh faced Xander who greeted him. The years had mellowed the fiery anger and the two were able to strike up a warm friendship. It was this relationship that kept Xander sane as all his loved one's aged and died leaving him alone except for Spike.

This seems like the beginning of something really good... Sure you don't want to run with it? *hint hint nudge hint* :)

cause i can't write :D and i have no idea where it would go

If that wasn't writing, I don't know what is! And we've all got to start somewhere. Practice makes perfect. Et cetera, lol.

Interesting idea. You should try fleshing it out. You don't have to post it publicly, but there's nothing wrong with doing it for yourself until you're more confident in your abilities. One little thing in the 3rd sentence. Shouldn't it be, 'The year Buffy died HIS face was still fresh and unlined'?

Have fun writing.

WoW !!! Awesome !!! And you are sure that was your first time of writing FF?!
Once I was a beginner too, but you are much more better than I was at that time. :-) And the others are right, practice is the key! Read and write and you will see!

beautifully done. Love the concept and it is great as is, but I agree with the others who said that it would work well as a longer piece. Please give it a go as I would love to read it -8:o)

very cool concept, short but to the point. very nicely done :)

I like this. It could stand alone but I'd love to see it fleshed out. Could I have it for Spanderfiles? I'll put it up as is, a story under your name, with a caveat that it can be used as a bunny if anyone wants to run with the idea. Would that be okay?
