Title: Too Much
Characters/Pairings: Xander/Anya, Willow
Rating: FRT/PG13
Words: 265
Disclaimer: Joss is not me.
Note: Season 5, pre-"Triangle", set in the Magic Box. Yes, I should mention within the story itself where the characters are. And, no, I don't actually do that. Description of the setting is one of the things I need to work on in my writing.

“…And that’s why communism is doomed to failure!” Anya finished with a grin. “I read all about it in this book on how America defeated the Soviets.”

“Well, that sounds very… unbiased,” Willow replied.

“Xander’s reading it now,” Anya continued.

This caused Willow to raise her eyebrows. She looked to Xander for confirmation.

He nodded, looking pleased with himself.

Willow turned back to the ex-demon. “And here you just gave us such a thorough summary!”

“I thought it would give us something to talk about,” Anya explained. “You know, after we’ve had sex and we’re waiting for Xander to be ready for more sex.”

Blushing, the gentleman in question ducked his head.

His friend fixed him with an evaluative look. “‘Cause nothing keeps ya in the mood like the talk of global capitalism.”

“Oh, I know!” Anya nodded vigourously. “Ooh! Customer!” And with one last smile at Xander, she strode over to assist a lady examining a display of newt parts. Anya herself had made the sign which read, NEWTS! More than just amphibious eye-factories!

Once his girlfriend was gone, Xander glanced up at Willow with a bashful grin. “Heh. That’s my Anya!”

“Yeah…” Willow leaned across the table towards her friend. “But don’t you ever think she’s, y’know… a little too much?” She whispered, while keeping her voice just loud enough for Anya to hear.

Out of the corner of his eye, Xander saw Anya twitch, like she would have turned to hear his answer if the customer wasn’t talking to her.

Xander smiled and didn’t bother to lower his voice. “You can never get too much of a good thing.”

Awww! So cute! I love Xanya!
Just one thing though, newt are amphibian, not reptillian. :)

which do you think sounds funnier? Amphibian or reptilian?

I never liked Willow's animosity towards Anya. She was overly mean at points, and never really understood the concept of 'if she makes Xander happy, then that makes me happy'.

You make Xanya cute, not so much Willow. Grr at Willow.

I didn't really like Willow in season 5. I hope the way I wrote her is true to canon and not just me making a petty villain out of a character I dislike.

I love Xanya. And I love writing Anya too. I could just keep writing pages upon pages of her dialogue.

Thanks for commenting. :)

You did a good job with Willow - she made me squirm with annoyance, but it definitely seemed true to the show - because she made me squirm with annoyance on the show too.

Don't worry, you didn't go too over the top.

Awww, cute. The dialogue is good and Anya is particularly in character.

Thank you. Anya is my favourite character to write. Everything she says makes me laugh, (even if I'm the one who writes it, lol).
Feb. 8th, 2007 08:06 pm (UTC)
Heee, very cute. I really like the idea of Anya making Xander read the same books she does... and also Anya's little twitch; she's not quite as secure as she would like us to think.
Feb. 8th, 2007 08:13 pm (UTC)
Thank you. :) I'm glad it works.

Ah, this is so cute. I love it, and you've written the characters so well. Great job.
Feb. 9th, 2007 07:17 am (UTC)
Thanks! :)

Or maybe Willow's doing a passive-aggressive thing that's she's only partially conscious of, even. ... Season 5 Willow is the one character I editorialize about in fic, even though I try to avoid it.

I like the newt sign too. :)

Thanks for commenting.

Finished Fanfic

A Demon, An Angel, And A God-King Meet In The Afterlife
Anya, Illyria, Castiel; R; ~21,500 words
My triumphal return to writing fanfic. I am now obsessed with Supernatural and Castiel. I thought it would be fun to see how he'd interact with Anya and Illyria, so I wrote this.

Fire G/J; FRT/PG; 1280 words
I love this, I think it's very prettily done, and different from the standard post-"Passion" death/angst.

Stalwart and True Gen; FRT/PG; 12 072 words
Award-winning, praise-garnering masterpiece by moi. After "Lies My Parents Told Me", focused on Giles and Buffy's relationship.

Four Things That Never Happened to Giles in a Kitchen, and One that Might've G/J; FRT/PG; 3840 words
For antennapedia's Rupertus Domesticus ficathon, I spend some time in my AU where Jenny never died. The family Giles never had.

Five Things that Never Happened to J. multi-ships; FRT/PG; 14 895 words
It seems that a pretty good way of determining if you're going to die on the Hellmouth is to check what letter your name starts with. Is it "j"? Sorry, you're out of luck.
Link goes to fanfiction.net

Carnival of the DeadGen; FRT/PG; 940
Random dream-fic that people ended up liking. Will be given a re-write eventually.

5 Loves
As it sounds, five fics about one character in five different ships.

3 of approx. 10 chapters complete

Nuclear Fission G/J; FRT/PG13
There's a new demon in town. Human-looking most of the time, it "mates" with women before sacrificing them to its underworld masters. Meanwhile, Buffy is thrown for a loop when she receives an invitation in the mail... to her father's wedding. At the same time, her relationship with Riley is straining as his commitment to the Initiative comes into conflict with his commitment to her. In the midst of all this, Giles, Jenny and Ani seem to be living the dream, and proving that happiness is possible on the Hellmouth. But all is not well in paradise...
