OMG, an Illyria fic. Not a long one, but a fic!


Title: A Hollow Throne
Author: Bogwitch
Word Count: 314
Rating: T
Character(s): Illyria.
Warnings: None.
Summary: The last one standing. From the prompt by [livejournal.com profile] ever_neutral: it doesn't hurt me.

Blood soaks a hollow throne, drips from fingers still wet.

“I knew you would win,” says the last of his race, her one remaining acolyte. Her final lover. Her last and only chance.

“So did I,” Illyria agrees without pleasure or emotion. “Now it is done.”

Without a thought, she steals his heart and her hand takes its final beat for her own. His body, loose and lifeless, dies and falls to join the others; his blood to stain the stones beneath the pile with a dark pool of scarlet secrets, as insignificant to her as the organ tumbling forgotten from her red stained palm. Just like it would have in the old days when the demons warred, before the world changed and ages passed and she slept on.

She pretends this is what she wanted; pretends that she’s satisfied at last. Pretends that all of this could mean something to her now. Fools herself that she has all that she wants.

She is victory.

She is the conqueror of a race that fought back too late and ultimately failed, unable to save themselves from the destruction she brought them. A race now dead at her feet.

She is the last one standing.

She was Illyria, demon king. Betrayer and slaughterer and dictator.

The mightiest of the mighty.

Ruler of the world.

Yet all alone.

For all her power, there is no one remaining to serve her, to know that she is the winner. No one is left to care whether she triumphed or fell. Not even herself.

The only one that might have mattered is a cold corpse in a grave almost forgotten.

It doesn’t hurt me anymore, my Wesley, she whispers to the cold night – a shout in the swallowing silence, and her penultimate lie, I have won.

She knows the truth of it now: she is the one who has lost.

I did a couple of Barbie scenes to illustrate prompts at [livejournal.com profile] sb_fag_ends this month and I wanted to bring them over here.

Um.Seven months between chapters! That has to be a record even for me. Sorry! I got stuck.

Unbetad I'm afraid. Feel free to point out any errors, I don't mind. That's if you can even remember what's happening.

Working My Way Back To You

No characters were harmed in the making of this fic. They do not belong to me, but are the property of Fox Entertainment and Mutant Enemy.

Summary: Spike/Buffy. Post-Chosen, Post Hellbound. What did you think the First Evil was doing after the closure of the Hellmouth? Knitting evil jumpers?

Keep up in PDF! WORKING MY WAY BACK TO YOU IN PDF** Just like a book might be, only better!

I shouldn't sit on this any longer. So what if no one will care. :(



Title: Old Gods, New Bonds
Author: Bogwitch
Rating: PG
Characters: Illyria and Drogyn the Battlebrand (Gen)
Spoilers: Season 5, Power Play, you know the bit with the X Box
Word Count: 1700
Disclaimer: Illyria will accept no ownership from me. Characters were slightly harmed before the making of this fic, so don't blame me, blame Angel.
Summary: “You must adapt or return to your rest.”
Author's Note: I'm not very familiar with Crash Bandicoot as I spent about two minutes playing Crash Bandicoot 2 and got very bored. Oh why couldn't they have been playing Spyro? Therefore, I don't which game in the series they are supposed to be playing. My research concluded it had to be either Crash Nitro Kart or Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex,but neither seemed to entirely fit the script. Therefore, Crash fans will need a pinch of salt.

Been fidding all weekend with masks and brushes and whatnot and have come up with another wallpaper.

I was THIS close this time to keeping and using it to re-design my webpage. But I couldn't be arsed.

I thought I'd add my contribution to this comment campaign thing. In my own style of course:

I have no idea why [livejournal.com profile] mommanerd asked for Illyria in a public restroom (I'm imagining a stampede of citizens running for the hills if that happened), but wrote it I did (through not a public restroom as such, more one of Wolfram and Hart's. You might get a client or two).

This one has some dark themes and is tentacle free...

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sexymermaid for giving me the cherry on top. ;)

I have terrible writer's block so in an attempt to get going again, I have a quick drabble for you. I can't seem to think of a title for this one. I'm going to regret saying that, I'm sure.


Let's Do Lunch by Bogwitch
(AtS, Season five, Spike and Illyria, gatecrashing a client buffet)

“This body requires sustenance,” Illyria ordered. “I was sent here.”

Spike waved a hand at the disordered remains of the Wolfram and Hart buffet, while appropriating the plate of spicy wings for himself. "It’s all yours."

“What are those?”

“Boiled eggs, Pet.” He dropped one egg into her palm.

Illyria looked at it curiously, her blue eyes staring at the thing he’d given her. "I will not eat the ovulation of such low creatures."

It felt smooth, strangely heavy in her hand. Almost perfect in slippery symmetry, it shined wetly, but felt dry like an eyeball…

“Perhaps they will do.”

Here is Part Two of the tentacle baby fic.

Sequel to Succour, which can be found here & here.

That's to [livejournal.com profile] calove for the beta, although that was yesterday and this has grown a bit since then, so mistakes are my fault.

Part one

Sucker Part Two )

bogwitch: (Illyria tentacle)
I have been drabbling for [livejournal.com profile] spillyria's drabble challenge this week. The theme is, appropriately, 'tentacles'! Woo!

As I'm working on a sequel to Succour, I tried a different approach to the subject:


From Dinner to Dust? – Bogwitch*

Spike dodged the grabbing grip of the tentacles that reached out for him.

“Illyria!” He reached for where he thought she stood, not taking his eyes off the demon. “The axe!”

Illyria didn’t reply, and no axe was forthcoming. Spike was caught around the ankle and a mighty tug pulled him off his feet, dragging him towards a wide maw, slobbering with noxious dribble in anticipation of its dinner.

He scrabbled for leverage to fight the creature off. “Illyria!’

Suddenly, the tentacle slackened its noose and he was released. Illyria stood over him. “I asked our son to release you.”


*With slight adjustment at [livejournal.com profile] samson28's suggestion.

Distracted this time by Twelve Days, sorry. Next bit shouldn't take too long, hopefully. Still, I finally get to use the nice icon by [livejournal.com profile] red_sunflower!

I've been a little worried about this chapter, this is where some of the real plot comes out. Due to my haziness on early AtS I really hope this works. Anything that seems wrong, let me know so I can fix it before I send it anywhere else.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] calove, [livejournal.com profile] hesadevil, [livejournal.com profile] gamiila for their betaing services.

After the last two weeks of manic posting in a million places, I've come back to earth with a bump. What am I going to do with myself?

Oh, yeah. WIP.

As my headspace is still all things Illyria, I thought I'd get that Tangly!Illyria plot bunny [livejournal.com profile] soundingsea put there, out of my head first with a drabble. It's been a while and I thought I'd offer it to [livejournal.com profile] kallysten's 2005 drabble challenge.:

A bit sexy, a bit influenced by Kafka:

It's finally over.

I'm creatively burnt out. I'll take a couple of days to rest, then it's back to the poor WIP.

It feels like I've been doing this forever and I think it nearly killed me - I'm not used to writing to much in so short a time anymore - but it's here, the last part of Twelve Days. As with yesterday, I am the writer, but [livejournal.com profile] calove wrote the end.





** Anyone who had difficulty with yesterday's link. It has been fixed.

Almost at the end of Twelve Days now. [livejournal.com profile] hesadevil gave us Angel and Connor yesterday with the myth of Black Peter. Today we see the most important person to Spike:



** THIS IS NOT THE LAST PART. THERE WILL BE AN EPILOGUE TOMORROW**


Now I have to go and write it...
