Drabble: Small mercies (R, Wes/Lilah)  
Whoops, tiny bit late with a minifill for Salvage...

Title Small Mercies
Author Brutti ma buoni
Rating R, for background of dismemberment
Word Count 100
Prompt Originally for prompt 210 I love you, but you must die at still_grrr
Characters/Pairing (if any) Wesley/Lilah
A/N: Shortly after Salvage, AtS s4


She was already dead. She was already dead when you did it. She was already dead when you raised the axe. She was already dead before you made the cut. And the second. And the third, which finally severed her head.

She would not willingly have become a vampire. She was evil, but she wasn't a demonic creature. She had choices, and she chose evil. Nobody forced Lilah Morgan when she was alive.

That was what you loved about her, wasn't it? That was why you would always have killed her, eventually. Angelus saved you that.

You won't thank him.

Oh, nice. I especially like this detail:

She was already dead before you made the cut. And the second. And the third, which finally severed her head.

Sad and gruesome at once.

I love their dynamic, honestly. And then Wesley has to do this, quite practically, with her voice still ringing in his ears. :(

Oh! This was one of those fade to black kind of scenes that just hurt, and your drabble feels the same way! Kudos for keeping it at exactly 100 words. Also, I loved this bit: "She was evil, but she wasn't a demonic creature. She had choices, and she chose evil." It's absolutely true, and in the BTVS/ATS world, something that's worth pointing out. Thanks for sharing!

Just recently re-watched the episode where she reappears. This is a ship I miss.
