          “But you—”
          “Kris, if you’re trying to spare my feelings, don’t worry about it.”  He’s hesitant and pained and it’s hard for him to talk about this, but he’s trying to get something important out.  “I just—she is a different person now, and I want to make it up to her.  Seriously.  I’d like her if I met her now for the first time.  I just…can’t do it personally.  And I delegate so much to you, and maybe it’s not fair to ask you of all people to do this, but…”
          She doesn’t respond for several long seconds, instead electing to continue to work on her KnightPad (it’s catchier than Knight Tablet, Xander argues, and she just rolls her eyes because it’s not like he’s marketing tablets yet even though he could; he has a weird sense of fair play) and then eventually nods when the silence begins turning to hurt.  “I’ll do it.  I’ll try to think about her just as another Slayer, because if I think about who she actually is and what she did I’ll get mad and she wouldn’t like me when I’m mad.  And I won’t tell you about it, just that it’s happening.”
          She giggles as he surprise hugs her from the back, arms snaking under hers.  “You’re in trouble if I break this.  I don’t care that you can fix it in an afternoon.  I’ve got important files on there.”
          “I can restore them.”  He leans in and presses a kiss to her ear, waggling his fingers goofily.  Ma-gic,” he whispers, and she rolls her eyes.

Summary: Faith knows why Xander has issues dealing with her even if no one else does.  And she's not willing to just sit there as the others talk about things they don't know.
Word Count: 336
Rating: Teen, placed under cut because it references one of the canon instances of BTVS non-con, Consequences.  The actual discussion takes place offscreen.

...and Faith's not gonna let the others say it's Xander's fault. )

Rating: Teen, placed under cut because it references one of the canon instances of BTVS non-con, Consequences.  I've only read people talk about it a few places (as opposed to Spike's attempt), but Xander's never gotten over it (he was always a lot quieter in S7 when Faith was in the room) and Faith...Faith really is working on being a hero, which is exactly why she can't let this go.  (There's a whole lot but there's one blog that goes through everything, and there's an entry for every episode with consent issues-this is the one for Consequences.  I'm not sure I'd recommend it, given its subject matter, but it is well written and points out everyone and wow Buffy is a lot more problematic as a show than you realize on first viewing.)

a mission goes badly... )

Summary: Really, kid?  Come on, you might as well have said 'be useful'.  We're working overtime on getting the suit together, just hang in there, we'll make it through, you and I.  I'll be pissed if you manage to get yourself killed before we have a chance to legitimately meet. -Tony

         They turn him away.  Again.  It strikes at old wounds, the fact that they don’t think him capable without the suit.  Which he still has yet to figure out how to make.  To be honest, he’s probably more useful than Willow.  She’s barely focused on offensive spells, while he has wards and shielding spells he could cast in his sleep, UV blasts and energy rays Stark would confuse for Repulsor tech.
         He doesn’t argue.  Who says that I don’t have shrapnel heading for my heart? he wonders, amused by his own dark humor.  He leaves.
         He doesn’t enjoy being with Faith.  Not that he doesn’t like the sex.  He does, and it’s pretty much as Tony remembers it, but there’s a caveat: he’s used to being, uhm, a more active participant.  He’d had fantasies about the way it’d gone.  Maybe he’s lazy.  It’s not how he thought it would be, and he immediately discards all of those fantasies.
         See, it’s nice to have an active partner taking care of your needs, but with Faith, she didn’t care about him at all, which kind of ruins the whole thing.
         For a few absurd moments he wonders whether that’s how all of Stark’s girlfriends felt, but the point is moot.  Maybe it’s a blow to his ego, being the one thrown out of the apartment holding his clothes, but if that’s how any of them felt he’ll never know unless their minds somehow download themselves, too.  PTB forbid.
         It’s got him in a reckless mood.  A mood where he’s hurting so bad it doesn’t matter what he does with himself, because anything’s better than the pain.
         And it should say something that he never feels more heroic than without his suit, refusing to move until the guy disarms the bomb.  He might be able to disarm it himself, but it’s lower tech than anything he tends to work with and he doesn’t feel like fighting the odds.  Not when his friends’ lives are at stake.  If all else fails he might be able to contain the blast with a shielding spell, though it honestly might kill him in the process.
         Might as well go down swinging, right?
