Warren Drabble

I thought 'I’ve got to write a Warren drabble, I’ll write something about the Trio it’ll be funny' … that didn’t happen instead there’s this:

Title: People Aren’t Machines
Author: Aurey09
Character: Warren
Number: 13/100
Timeline: Villains

Warren saw a team like a machine, if a part went wrong you removed it. Jonathan broke down first, he’d expected it to be Andrew but it didn’t matter, both of them were weak, like sheep; like the majority humans.

But Warren is the first to stop working. He isn’t unwound like a spring but stripped, made into a dangling carcass. Anya sees it happen, as she stands with the others. She remembers looking into one of his robots, saying she’d prefer looking at guts not wires. But now she wishes he were a machine, everything would be less complicated.

Excellent. A look into Warren (lierally) and Anya - two for the price of one.

Care for some concrit before you consider posting this on gen_storyteller?

Thanks glad you liked it.

Thanks I'll take you up on the concrit. I've already got a rejection/concrit email today so I'll wait till tomorrow if that's okay with you. I've done some others drabbles as well I'm not sure if they're right for gen_storyteller or not.

Oh yes, Warren always thought highly of himself, but was the first to fall!

Thank you. It was difficult knowing what drabble to write around Warren. I tried to be as objective as possible when writing about him, while not ignoring who he is.

Thanks it was one of those fics that went to a darker place than I intended it to.

I'm glad you loved it. I wrote it this afternoon and it went in a completly different direction than I'd intended it to.

That’s weird. I read this late last night and thought, oh I must friend her tomorrow because I like this so much. And this morning, found you friended me for my last drabble! It’s fate!

Welcome to my f-list. I tend to friends people when I like their writing. Is there any of your past drabbles or fics that you want to recommend I read.

No, not funny, but well done. It gives a pretty good look into the minds of both Warren and Anya.

Anya pushed me out the way and took over on this one.

Excellent drabble, I hated Warren and was glad he got flayed ::is bloodthirsty::

Thanks, Warren was a difficult character to know what to write for. He's a different type of villain to most other characters in the Buffyverse. He was just a human, which makes the things he does all the more terrifying.

Here from buffyversetop5
I like that comparison between Warren and Anya, two people who want the human condition to be simpler (and more self-serving).

Re: Here from buffyversetop5
Yeah, there are some similarities between the two, both are at times motivated by vengeance (particularly towards the opposite sex) and their world views do seem to be eerily close. Thank you.
