Drabbles: Numero Cincon and Illyria

Number 6 and 7 of the 100 Whedon character drabbles I'm doing. If you want to you can suggest what character you want me to write for next.
Title: Hope

Rating: PG13
Character: Numero Cinco
Word count: 100
Number: 6/100  

“My company would like to offer you a job. A young man of your skills would be an asset.”

Numero Cinco knew of Wolfram and Hart. He no longer cared about the people they hurt, for they no longer cared about him or his brothers. Their victories had been forgotten over the years.

He took the job because he was no longer a hero, because being a hero wasn’t simply about being brave and risking one's life. It was about having hope, that one day you might conquer all of the evil. It was hopeless and naïve; it was heroic.


Title: Walls

Character: Illyria
Timeline: Post NFA.
Word count: 100
Number: 7/100 

LA was a flame, a muddle of smoke and screams. Spike and Illyria stood on a rooftop. Only them left in the middle of an apocalypse.

“This can’t be bloody happening.”

“There are scores of occurrences that should not be,” Illyria pointed out. “There is no longer a balance. One force will become the dominant.”

Spike turned to leave.

“You will not abandon me. All walls are tumbling, Wesley was right. This must be what they wished not to see.” She tilted her head upwards letting the rain slice along her face.

“This kingdom is lost to us.”

“Rome, then.”

These are both very nice. I particularly like this line:
She tilted her head upwards letting the rain slice along her face.

The use of the word 'slice' is an excellent choice, and in that one moment Illyria leapt off the page.

I found Illyria an intimidating character to write but she a character that I find really interesting. You know the drill you comment you get to suggest the next character for a drabble.

I love Numero Cinco.. he's awesome and so is this drabble. I love the way Ilyria sees things (kind of like Anya on steroids)... you really captured that.

I was worried the Numero Cinco one might be a bit repetitive. I guess she is a bit like Anya I never thought about it before. You can suggest another character for the next drabble if you want to.

Doyle :) Have we done Doyle?
Feb. 2nd, 2007 08:05 pm (UTC)
I've never written for Doyle before but that's the purpose of this exercise. I'll give it a go.

giggles... nice icon ;)

Walls was a well written drabble, you captured Illyria perfectly. I was wondering if you could do a Lorne drabble? Or a Cordy one? Either would be great.

I'm glad you enjoyed the Illyria drabble I wasn’t sure if I'd be able to write for her. I'll try and write a drabble for both of them.

Both of these are wonderful. :D As for the next character, maybe something way different...Phantom Dennis or Gru perhaps?
Feb. 2nd, 2007 08:12 pm (UTC)
I'll see what I can do. I'll get around to writing one for both of them.

Numero Cinco! Yay! And I love Illyria.

Really nice drabbles, hon.

Thanks. Do you want to suggest another characters, all the characters suggested so far have been for Angel so if you are going to pick a character could it be a Buffy or a Firefly character.

Feb. 3rd, 2007 12:18 am (UTC)
Sure. Sadly I've only caught a couple episodes of Firefly, so I'm not too familiar with them. So Buffy. How about Warren?
Feb. 3rd, 2007 01:14 am (UTC)
That's sounds okay, I've not written for Warren before so I'll have to see how that goes.
Feb. 3rd, 2007 04:10 am (UTC)
These were wonderful. Great job doll.
Feb. 3rd, 2007 12:23 pm (UTC)
Thank you. You can suggest another character you think I should do a drabble for. I've got a lot of Angel character's so far so if it could be a Buffy or Firefly character that be much better.

Dawn is my favorite. Can I see one about her?
Feb. 3rd, 2007 03:54 pm (UTC)
Sure I'll write one.
Feb. 3rd, 2007 06:40 pm (UTC)
Really enjoyed the Illyria drabble. Well done.
Feb. 3rd, 2007 07:48 pm (UTC)
I’m trying to write drabbles for a 100 different Joss Whedon characters. So let me know if there's a character you want me to write one for in the future.

You should do one for the Buffybot or Principle Snyder!
