Drabble: Cured Skins of Dead Animals

Another still_grrr drabble, this time for the prompt black and/or anxious. I got both. And hey! S3!

~~~~~

The secret was leather, Willow’d decided. Instant attitude. Spike; Angel and Angelus (coat first, then Leather Pants of Evil); Faith always; Buffy jaunty and deadly on her skip down the wild side. Willow’d wondered, then, if some tasteful pleather would help her best-friend appeal.

And now the leather was hers, shiny-black and skin-tight and squeaky, lace exclaiming “Here be my boobs!” for the far-sighted. First entrant, Slut-o-Rama 1999: Willow Wannabe.

Except what Willow wanted was to be anywhere else, Oz home safe, all those people in the Bronze depending on anyone other than her.

Deep breath, Rosenberg.

Be the leather.

Oooh, I like! Early season Willow is so much more fun. She overthinks everything!

Xander in Lie to Me: "You have too many thoughts." One of my favorite descriptions of early Willow. :)

I'm glad you enjoyed!

I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Honestly, this is one of my favorite drabbles that I've written. Aw, Willow. :)

Such a lovely drabble. I adore Doppelgangland and Willow trying to fake her vampire sadistic personality. Your insight is very funny, especially the "be the leather" thing. (Also nice one with Angel and Angelus: when he wears leather pants is sure that he's evil)

Oh yay, thank you! I used to really enjoy writing drabbles, and this one was awfully fun. And yes, leather has significance in this show. Symbolic significance. *nods*
