Notes: Not beta’ed so please feel free to point out mistakes. Written for the passion_perfect 48 hour Halloween Challenge. 500 words.


She stood in the corner, watching her mother open yet another can of beer, bringing it to her lips. She’d made her costume herself from one of her mother’s dingy forgotten sweat shirts and a red marker, D drawn crudely on the front, hair pulled into pigtails, red marker used to color in her cheeks.

“I thought we were goin’ trick or treating?” She spoke up fearfully.

Her mother threw the now empty beer can at her, causing the young girl to turn so she got hit in the back this time. “Trick or treat, Faith. Trick or freaking treat.”


The kids knocking on the door was driving her nuts. Didn’t they get by the lack of decoration that there was no damn candy in this apartment? After the fiftieth knock, she finally got up from the lumpy couch, making sure her footfalls were extra heavy on the way to the door.

She yanked the door open, ready to give the kid what for when she saw a little girl dressed as a ninja before her, brown curls poking out from the back of her mask.

Faith grabbed the fruit pie off the dresser, tossing it into the kid’s bag.


“So what are you?” She looked the other girl up and down.

“I’m The Slayer.” Buffy just blinked at her, confused.

“No, I mean, what are you going as, B? For Halloween?” Leave it to Buffy to give an answer like that. Even in coma dreams, B was still no fun.

“I…I don’t know. What are you going as?”

“Oh, you gave me my costume already.” Faith pulled her hand away from her middle, the red blood spreading across her shirt. “Figure my guts on the outside is enough to scare any little kid walking around. What do you think?”


“How you liking the Halloween special, Lehane? You got your green meat and your candy corn.”

Faith felt an elbow nudge her, almost enough to make her lose control of her tray. She looked down at the food, feeling her stomach turn. It damn sure wasn’t onion blossoms at The Bronze washed down with a beer purchased with a fake ID (cause ill gotten beer, always the sweetest).

Back in her cell, she found a plain paper wrapped package, one end already torn open for inspection. She knew that handwriting. Just when she thought everyone had given up on her.


“After living with Harris for all these years and you don’t know who I am?”

“I told you, you look like Catwoman, Faith.”

“I am Black Cat. Totally different comic. She was busy fucking Spiderman’s brains, stealing tons of crap. And giving people bad luck.”

“Sounds like you guys have a lot in common. How did you know all that anyway?”

“Nothing to do in prison but read and get packages from hot blondes with perky tits.” Faith grinned. “I think you are digging the latex catsuit.”


“Come here, B, I will show you nice. Trick or treat, baby.”

Awww, that's great. From sad to horrific to sweet. I especially liked the dream sequence - the way the conversation between them sounds so... mundane, somehow, despite the subject. That sort of disconnected, unreal dream feel. And Faith as Black Cat... rowr.

Two small typos, I think: "plain paper wrapped packaged" should be "package", I think, and is Wee!Faith really supposed to say "trick r treating"?

Thanks for catching the typos! That is what I get for writing it at 1:30am. LOL Looked over it how many times this morning and still didn't get it.

And aside from that, thank you for the feedback. You so got exactly what I was trying to do with the coma-dream. You are so awesome.

Your icon is absolutely brilliant!
beer_good_foamy on October 28th, 2007 09:54 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Made it myself, snaggable if you want.
Zoe: cordyzoesmith on October 28th, 2007 10:13 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I don't have any icon space left, but I'll definitely save it and I will credit you when I use it!

I can't help it, I like the fluff and the happy endings. :) Thank you for the comment.

Thank you so much. I really appreciate it.

Nice, very nice! You really captured Faith's character!

“I think you are digging the latex catsuit.”
Great line! I can just picture her saying that!
Kelly: Buffy: Fuffy BWxlivvielockex on October 29th, 2007 07:35 am (UTC)
I can picture her in the catsuit. Mmmm, now that is a great mental image. LOL

Thanks so much for the compliment. It means a lot.

Nice set of drabbles. I really liked the Coma Time one.

I would have given you a longer comment if I didn't have a 22 page fic sitting around waiting to be betaed. *stares pointedly at Kelly* LOL.
Kelly: Buffy: Fuffy Comicsxlivvielockex on October 29th, 2007 07:36 am (UTC)
Yes, but think of what you are working towards. Gillypuffs. Just for you. Oh, and I so started that plantation slave thing. I'm gonna be on fandom_wank, I'm gonna be on fandom_wank. LOL
Rayrayruz on October 28th, 2007 10:46 am (UTC)
Wonderful!!! I especially liked the coma one.
Kelly: Buffy: Fuffy OT3xlivvielockex on October 29th, 2007 07:37 am (UTC)
That one was actually the easiest one to write. Was just there. Thanks so much for the compliment. It means a lot to me. *hugs*
ralstralst on October 28th, 2007 11:57 am (UTC)
Very nice. I especially loved the bit about the pie.
Kelly: Buffy: Faith's Minexlivvielockex on October 29th, 2007 07:38 am (UTC)
Mmmm, who doesn't love pie? LOL

Thanks for the feedback, really appreciate it. And your icon is so making me miss Facts of Life. I totally cribbed Jo's Valevictorian speech for my own HS Valevictorian speech. LOL

May I archive this at Five Things?
Kelly: Buffy: Fuffyxlivvielockex on October 29th, 2007 07:42 am (UTC)
Of course. Thank you for asking. I have a couple of other "Five Things" fics around here, if you are interested in archiving those as well, I can pass you the links. (I want to say either 4 or 5 more. I need to double check)
chrisleechrisleeoctaves on October 29th, 2007 12:09 pm (UTC)
By all means- I am always on the look-out for Five Things fic!
lauratdlauratd on October 29th, 2007 12:33 pm (UTC)
I love all of these. The last line of each segment puctuates it nicely.

Kelly: Buffy: Fuffyxlivvielockex on December 13th, 2007 05:18 am (UTC)
Aww, you are really too good to me. Always leaving me nice comments. *smooches*
