Drabble based on 'City Of'  
Title: Rites of Passage
Author: xlivvielockex
Rating: PG
Word Count: 100
Character: Angel
A/N: We are doing an Angel Rewatch at Stranger Things and I noticed Angel has a bakery box in his fridge amongst the blood. It got me thinking. Un'betaed.

Angel isn’t sure why he does it anymore. (By now, she’d been long since dead.) But the same day every year, he finds the nearest bakery, his eyes glued to the rows of sugary confections trapped behind glass. She always did have a sweet tooth.

It’s always the same though. He picks the one the one that is the darkest, most decadent looking shade of cocoa. When he gets home (where ever that is: sewer, apartment, hotel), he puts a single candle atop the cake, lighting it. He waits for her, until the candle sputters and dies.

“Happy birthday, Kathy.”

Awwwwwww! This was adorable ♥ I can see Angel doing this every year.

LMAO @ the screencap complete with circle. ILU <3

You KNEW I was going to get that cap and circle it so people can see. Why do I have this feeling on every episode I will find something nitpicky like this that will force me to write?

Aww, it's supposed to be all heartbreaking. Damn, I need to ratchet up the angst on the next one! *shakes fist*

This was so affecting, which is surprising because of the shortness of it. Really lovely writing that I felt got across the angsty message you were going for.

Thank you! I think the best drabbles are the ones that can give you the same emotional wallop as a longer fic.
yazizzle33: Cordy/Angel - Billyyazizzle33 on June 3rd, 2010 03:19 am (UTC)
I would agree. If only there were more drabbles out there like yours then I wouldn't be so adamant about mainly reading longer fics.

Gah! Sad Angel!

wonderful bit of a character study, bb. It reads like it could have happened just like that. :D
Kelly: ATS: AWC Familyxlivvielockex on June 3rd, 2010 02:53 am (UTC)
I like him sad when he is all by himself. LOL

Thank you though. I'm hoping the rewatch will spark some more ideas.

nice work :) But who's Kathy?
Kelly: ATS: Team Angelxlivvielockex on June 3rd, 2010 03:39 am (UTC)
His sister. That he killed when he was Angelus. She is shown in flashbacks, most notably duing The Prodigal.

He waits for her, until the candle sputters and dies.

Is there such a thing as an angsty swoon? Because I think I just had one.

This is great. Just the right measure of sweet to bring depth to the sad and introspective, and this is the kind of angst that's real, which makes it automatically palatable and gorgeous.

Now for the other matter -- An Angel rewatch?! How fun!
Kelly: DW: 10/Donnaxlivvielockex on June 4th, 2010 06:36 pm (UTC)
I think there has to be such a thing as angsty swoon cause I've had it before reading fanfic. LOL

And you should join Stranger Things and join in on the rewatch. We are doing catchup on missed episodes on the weekends. So much fun! (And ST is one of the best places I've ever been to on the net)

I'm sure you will find a job soon. You're smart and talented. I hope you'll be haunting ST now that you have some time. I'm hosting a rewatch.

And me, same old same old. Honestly, I'm so boring IRL. LOL
