Monster Drabbles (#11-15)

These were written for good__evil , and their October Monster Madness! Each day of the month belongs to a different monster, and authors post their drabbles on the designated day. I've managed one for each day so far.  These are from October 11th to 15th, and represent headless horseman, leprechaun, succubus, hell hound, and faerie.

Monster: Headless Horsemen

 

*~*

They were enjoying a quiet, non-demony night’s stroll when suddenly, eight cheering, slightly see-through figures on horseback surrounded them, each wielding a polo mallet and trying to whack the weird, hairy-looking ball. 

Buffy and Spike were so startled by this that it took them a whole minute to realize the ball was actually a head, and that all the riders – except for one – had theirs tucked in the curves of their non-mallet-holding arms.                                  

They played through, followed at a distance by a floating apparition with a wobbly head, mumbling about never being allowed to join. 

Enlightened, Buffy shouted, “Head polo!”

Title: How Dawn and Andrew Didn’t Get Rich
Author: Abelina (Abby)
Word Count: 100
Monster: Leprechaun

 

*~* 

“How much further?” 

The leprechaun giggled, pointing up ahead.  “Not far! Follow me!” 

Andrew giggled, too, and turned to smile at Dawn.  “This is so cool!  Hey, when we get our gold, do you think I’ll have enough for that Boba Fett costume?” 

Dawn rolled her eyes.  If we get ‘our gold’, I’ll buy the freaking costume for you, okay?” 

The leprechaun had pranced ahead and they caught up just as they came to a pot brimming with gold coins.  Andrew cheered and tossed them in the air. 

Dawn peeled away the foil.  “Chocolate.”

Andrew sniffled.  “Is it good chocolate?”

Monster: Succubus

 

*~* 

He wondered each night if this time, it would be different.  Kittens or daisies, perhaps?  But no, every night it was the same thing.  And while waking each morning was torture beyond belief, his nightly punishment felt like the closest to heaven he’d ever get. 

The wait was never long.  Seconds after closing his eyes, she was there.  The setting, her dress or lack there of, that changed nightly.  It always ended with her in his arms, their bodies dancing together in timeless passion, and him waking with a stain on his sheets and her name on his lips. 

Buffy...

Monster: Hell Hound

  

*~* 

See, I don’t really understand why he gets remembered and all I get is a whole bunch of blank faces until I tell them whose brother I am and then they nod and sometimes step away a little. 

But if they knew anything about anything they’d realize that flying monkeys are so perfectly American classic!  I mean, Wizard of Oz?  Anyone? 

*Dramatic Sigh* 

But hell hounds – they really aren’t all they’re cracked up to be, you know?  I bet if Buffy hadn’t killed them first, my monkeys could have! 

I miss him.  I kind of even miss his stupid hounds.

Title: Our Favourite Faerie
Author: Abelina (Abby)
Word Count: 100
Monster: Faerie

 

*~* 

“Do you think she’ll really come?” 

William rolled over to look at Anna.  “Only if you quit yapping and go to sleep.” 

“But I want to see her, William!” Anna said.  “Is she big or little?  Does she have wings?  Where does she keep all the teeth she collects?  Do you think she’ll need change?” 

“Oh, bloody hell,” William said, turning over in his bed as Anna continued prattling on.  And this was only her first lost tooth!  

From inside the closet, the little faerie laughed a tinkling laugh and waited for the little girl to talk herself to sleep.

I'm kind of inclined to agree with you! He's proving to be great fun in drabbles! Now I just need a story to put him in!

You know, I had this idea...but didn't know how to go about doing it.

I would love to share some thoughts with you if interested...special project of awesomeness perhaps?

Loved the HP crossover one! And the one with Andrew was great, too :)

Some of these were just perfect for HP cross-overs, and this is the first thing I thought of when I read that day's monster. Thanks!
